We just purchased a new Linksys router. When I opened the packaging, this is what I saw:
So I figured opening the little envelope would be a good way to start. Inside:
I was beginning to get the sense that they wanted me to run the CD before connecting any cables. But I wasn't 100% sure yet.
OK, bright orange - very eye catching. Good, so by now I was almost pretty 100% sure that I should run the CD before messing around with cables (for best results). But, first I figured that first I'd take a look at the back of the router:
Wow. They must be REALLY serious about not connecting the cables before running the CD. At this point I was feeling overwhelmed with the large, bolded orange and white instructional signs, so I pulled off the sticker on the back of the router...and connected a cable before (gasp!) running the CD:
And nothing exploded or anything! What a let down. And the router even functioned properly. Really, I don't know what the big deal was.
