    New router. Plan to upgrade linksys firmware first - power up router and computer with wired ethernet connection and follow instructions. Now when I configure the router, do I use the CD, the 'Quick Install' dowlnload at Linksys, or the 'Easy Connect' at Linksys?

    No, don't bother using the CD. These routers can be virtually seen as "plug and play." IMO, the CD is just a gimmick.

    What type of connection are you connecting to? Automatic e.g. Cable, PPPoE, etc.

    If you plug in the router and connect to it by typing (Default password is admin - no userid is required), you can config your own stuff in there.

    I'm guessing you're on something that requires authentication.. or else you could just plug the router and it'll work .. automatically.
