    Ethernet cord from your modem to the "Internet" or "Uplink" port on the Linksys router should be the only connection you'll need if you're using it wirelessly; with the exception of the power cables, of course. ^__^

    You can find your LAN IP by opening a command prompt (assuming you're using Windows) and typing "ipconfig/all" (without the quotes).

    You can find your WAN IP by accessing your router's internal configuration pages. If you have the documentation that came with the router it should tell you how to access those. If not, once you get online you can find the user guides on Linksys' website for your model.
