new connection hardware query

I tried this on the networking forum, but to no avail. Maybe I'm better off in Absolute Beginners!

My Broadband connection went live yesterday. My ISP sent me a free USB modem. I already posted here about getting a wireless router/modem combined, which I've decided to do. My question is this: should I wait until I've bought the router/modem combined (probably a week or so), rather than set up with the basic modem, and then change it all over in a week's time. Given I'm no genius in these things, would it be simpler to wait, or can I chop and change the hardware quite easily?

Is the CD supplied with the modem starter pack for the software (connection) or the hardware (modem)

Who is the broadband ISP and what connection have you got (e.g. 1 meg)

Hi, It's TalkTalk and its 1 meg. Thanks

click here it looks like its their connection software and it may well be worth waiting until you get your modem.

Thanks Andy. Just to clarify, do you mean, wait until I've got the modem/router all in one?
