Wireless router help

I cant set up my orange livebox because i cant install service pack 2 which is the program that has windows security centre :( will it work if i set up the router on my laptop, then take the ethernet cable out, will all the settings stay the same? I was then going to connect wirlessly by my laptop, and then if i brought a pci card for my pc would i be able to pick the signal up from my livebox

That would should work fine if it is the same as other routers it makes no difference which machine you set it up with and once done you can run wired and wireless in any combination

That will work fine any 802.11b/g USB adapter will work. I take it that your laptop is not already wireless enabled?
