Well, first things first, press the reset button on the router and make sure every thing is plugged in correctly:
power > modem
power > router
ADSL > modem > router > mac 1 and/or router >mac 2
ok. Now, power cycle both the modem and the router then bring up the control page.
Out of the box, you should not have to set up anything except for wireless security and wireless channel, which is why you should reset the router.
Set the wireless security to wpa-2 and choose a secure passcode.
Set the wireless channel to whatever works best. They suggest 6 or 11. I always have the best luck with 11.
Unless you're working with dynamic IPs, you shouldn't have to change anything. I would use the modem to recieve your IP.
