Apple AirPort Base Station. Apple's software will only configure an
Apple base station. What you need to do is set up your ~computer~ to
join an existing wireless network, using either the AirPort Setup
Assistant or the system network preferences.
To configure the router, follow the directions in the Belkin manual. If
you don't have a manual, you can download one from
<http://www.belkin.com>. Configuring the Belkin router will probably
involve connecting it to your iMac with an Ethernet cable and using your
web browser to "go to" the router's built-in web page using its numeric
IP address, probably 192.168.2.1.
