    I'd look for some picture tutorials first. Then, check into other firmwares that do have some tutorials, like dd-wrt. Depends on your level of experience as to how much help can be given.

    Once you have the router flashed, up and running, login to the router.

    Set Wireless Mode to Wireless Ethernet Bridge

    Basic - Network

    Set your router ip address to one within your particular network's range (mine is set to, Subnet Mask is filled in and Default Gateway (as your network, mine is

    Set your SSID to your network's. To ensure connectivity you may want to disable encryption on your router first, to test. Once its up and running, set encryption again - I've used most modes without issue.
