Activating AT&T Internet Wifi - Macbook AIR (NO ETHERNET PORT!)

Hello guys....so I'm trying to activate my internet, and the instructions say I have to PLUG INTO the router to activate wifi.  I don't have a computer with an ethernet port - I only own a macbook air.  

 

There has GOT to be a way to get this activated.  I just want to use wifi to my macbook air and iphone. 

 

Help?

On the side of the RG is the device SSID and wireless pass code.
In settings turn on wifi, view list of available devicez, select your router, enter pass key.
Now open your browser, should take you to registration page, if not attempt search should then grab your browser and load page.

Thanks my thoughts...but how can I do this when i can't connect to the wifi to begin with. It says I need to plug in with an ethernet connection FIRST to activate my connection/computer (I think?). Currently, I can't even see the wifi network. Is there a way to turn it on?

Wangta - Are you sure it is not on?? Default is on. The macbook should be able to discover your SSID/. Then you enter the password.

If the wireless is not discovered reset the RG - Hold down the reset button & try again.

If that fails - find someone with a computer with a network jack so you can do the setup wired.
