You should be fine. In my experience you can ignore the 'setup' disks
and just use the web interface the router has. They are fairly standard
and intuitive if I remember right - just work out what IP to connect to
and what the default username and password is. This is usually in the
instruction manual or on the bottom or the router.

I think you should have no problems to be honest. :)

I'm in Manchester area anyway so if it all goes wrong (seriously, it
won't), I'm around to help!

Take care,
