How do I set up the wireless router if the software only works for windows?
You don't need to install the software, even on Windows.
Plug your Mac into the router and use a browser to go to 192.168.1.1.
The manual should list the username/password, which'll be something like "[blank]/admin" or "admin/admin".
You can then do everything via the browser.
Advice: Change the login name / password if you plan on doing wireless.
Also strongly advise turning on WEP and/or MAC filtering to keep your network private. Otherwise you're dropping your pants to the neighborhood, in a bad way.
Just to be clear - plug the Mac into the router via an ethernet cable, or you should be able to browse via Airport to the router, which is likely set up with a default "linksys" SSID.
