How do I set up usb with Brightbox router and windows 7 professional?

I'm currently using Wifi and want to change over to using USB. I've become very sensitive to EMF and for health reasons want to disable WiFi.

 

I only have instructions on how to set up WiFi. How do I disable this and connect USB to my laptop. My operating system is Windows 7 Professional and I have a BrightBox router. Also what USB cables do I use?

You can't connect to a router using USB. If you want a non-wireless & preferable solution then use the Ethernet cable that came with router to connect the PC to the router.

It should be in the router box. Phone CS for 1 if it was missing.
