Welcome, JW. Speed control accessory's are not for use with a soft start router. So, it looks like you will need a new router if you want speed control.

I have the PC modle 7518, with soft start and 5 variable speed settings from 10,000 up to 24,000 rpm. May be more than I need for now but it's nice to have that range of settings if I need it.

Which router do you have. If it is a PC 7538, you can eliminate the soft start. It will probably go out sooner or later anyway. There is a post about them and wiring diagram on this site.
