Netgeear DG834GT Router install

I have installed the above router before where I had router connected to pc and an adapter connected to laptop and they "talked" to each other.
I have been asked to install where only using one laptop on network and he wants it to work wireless from router.

Will the router work if not attached to any pcs and if so do I need to install differently. I have read through the manual I have downloaded and contacted netgear but cannot find an answer.

without being physically connected to anything other than a power supply and phone line.

It will broadcast to any wireless-adapter-equipped computer within range, and your friend with the laptop will have no need ever to connect to the router after the initial setup routine.

A computer must be connected via a cable for that process of course, and the router will have come with the appropriate cable in the box. Once the setup configuration is finished you can remove the cable completely.
