Default Where to install router software

I am planing to install my router/wireless card, both came with their separate cd installers, I know to install the wireless card on that computer but do I also have to install the router software on that computer also or just the computer that is directly connected to the router?

As long as you install the wireless card on the pc you want to connect to the net you dont have to install any other software. No router software needed. PLug the router in configure it and your set.

Usually they will include a cd for initial configuration.

Yes it's mostly for people who have no clue about what they are doing... I think it changes a few settings at the most.

Yeah i completely Restarted my computer about 4 times, and never installed any software. Your router might get in the way of certain things such as, xbox live, PS2 Online, ect. So if that eccurs then you will have to DL a patch.
