Default Linksys Wireless-G Router.

Alright, well my friend gave me his Linksys G router, and it's brand new, never touched, etc. All I have is the power cord, Install CD, and the router itself. Is that all the contents I need to use the router? Do I need to register it or anything?

You should be set. Put in the install CD, and it should tell you exactly what to do.

If you need to do any configuration (network name, security, etc.) you will need a patch cable to connect the router to your computer and access the router config page via IE or other web browser.

No, you can use any ethernet cable.

When I said patch cable, I meant ethernet cable. When I say patch cable, I just mean network cable, CAT5 cable, whether you want to call it, it's all the same. But not everybody has one.

Well, a patch cable has slightly different wiring than normal ethernet cables. It allows two computers to be connected directly to each other with no device in between.

Well I know those to be a crossover cable. I have one, but I know patch cables as the cables from a patch panel to a switch or hub, which are regular CAT5.

Ahh mate, it's cool. I love the username. I have just upgraded so many hubs in classrooms to switches. But they weren't CISCO. I honestly can't remember what they were, but they upgraded all the schools from 10 mbps to 100 mbps with those and some new NICs for the old computers. But I plan on getting certified in A+, Network+, Security+, and some Microsoft, Novell, etc.
