Looking for some help with setting up a console/PC network

I got the gamer package which came with a wireless router and an ethernet modem (annex). Does this mean that the annex will pick up the signal from the wireless router or do they have to be connected?  The modem will be plugged into my xbox 360. Any help appreciated!R

You dont give makes and models of router and modem so I can answer generally. The wireless router I assume has a modem built in and it connects to the internet?
If that is the case then your pc connect via wireless or a cable. the same is true for the xbox it can connect via a cable or you can buy a radio card and connect that way.
If the modem connect to the internet and the router has no modem you would have to plug the modem into the router and the pc and xbox would connect as above.
You cant have the modem and router connected to the internet at the same time and even have them both plugged in ill stop the internet working
