Unless I am mistaken, that is an IOS device.  Here is the software documentation:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/

The newest version would be the same as other routers, which is 12.2 currently.

I have one at home so fire away with questions.

The best way to set it up for a beginner, who wants to learn about networks and Cisco devices in particular is to use Configmaker.
http://www.cisco.com/go/configmaker
There is also FastStep but that is no good in my experience.

If it was configured when you got it, you may need to run a password recovery:

For this procedure, you will need a "rollover" cable and a DB9 plug marked "Terminal", both of which came with the router.

You select the router and click on "deliver"

In some cases, I have seen the the config file does not actually work. If you want to have me check the configuration, then you can post the configuration here. Remember to xxxx all passwords out, even the encrypted ones.

I can check your configuration based on the IOS configuration tab on the router properties in configmaker.
Just copy-paste it as a comment here.
