You should be able to log in to the router on any computer. You just type in (or whatever the IP of your router is, just check the manual) into the address bar in your web browser and the router's config page will come up in the same way as it does on your PC.

you can login from ANY pc connected to the network.

If your connecting wirelessly then you must have the correct wep key.

once the wireless is setup you should be ble to access the web based setup wirelessly, it is only at first you can't.

I just tried it with mine wirelessly and accessed it no problem.
