I got two parcels this morning. One of them was a router. The instructions say:

Linksys highly recommends that you use the setup CD-ROM to install the Cable/DSL Router with 8-Port Switch. However, if you prefer to install the router manually, then follow the instructions in this Quick Installation.

A. Make sure all devices, including your PCs, modem, and Router, are powered down.
B. If you haven’t already done so, connect your cable or DSL modem to its proper connection – the coaxial jack for cable or the phone jack for DS[…]
C. Using an Ethernet network cable, connect the LAN or Ethernet network port of the cable or DSL modem to the Router’s internet port.

You know, I can’t be bothered doing the above, I think I’ll just use the CD like they suggest.
