Was the computer hooked up to your DSL/cable modem and connected to the internet before you tried to set up the router?

you want to install a router on the iMac, or setup it as WAP?

Mac or mac address config?

can't create what? Routers establish connections based off information provided to it. Routers do not create connections - is this what you mean?

I am confused, are you talking about installing software or setting up a "connection" to a wireless router, or set the iMac up as WAP and have other computer connect to it. Please explain better.
