I've recently acquired the above router and want to give it a go.

Problem is, when ?I go to the TP-Link website to download the 'Easy setup' software there's no version available for linux.

anyone know how I can set the router up without the 'Easy setup' software - please bear in mind that I'm a linux noob and know virtually nothing about routers and/or networking!
