True DHCP you plug the router in and you are ready to roll.
* Some ISP's register the MAC address of your network card so that the new MAC address of the router may not be allowed to access. The router has the option to clone the MAC address of your computer, thereby allowing the router to have the same MAC address as your computer, allowing it access.
PPPoE, Static IP will require going into the router settings and configure it with the info provided to you by your ISP.
Once you have all this set up and running. I recommend you look into securing your wireless network. Most routers will provide WEP, MAC filter, no SSID broadcast. WEP is good to start with.
