Cisco !710 Router setup

I just purchased a Cisco 1710 router and  I am trying to set it up
my network used to have a netgear cable router w/ Dhcp and Nat
I am trying to setup the 1710 but it has a different setup in the back
I also am using a switch to plug in the other workstations is this possible?

It's certainly possible, but it's not quite as user-friendly as your NetGear was.

There are some optional network interfaces on various 17xx models, so when you say "it has a different setup in the back" I'm not sure what's there.  Odds are that it has two Ethernet ports, one to go to your cable modem and one to the switch.  Configuration is going to include:

1.  Configuring the port that goes to the cable modem, either with a static IP address or as a DHCP client.

2.  Assigning a static private IP address to the other port.

3.  Configuring DHCP service on the private port, to give configuration to your PCs.

4.  Configuring NAT to allow devices on your private network to use the public IP address for outbound connections.

Each of these consists of a few simple commands, based on some choices you need to make.

What you are seeing is the banner motd. The message that gets dispalyed when you login to a system.
To reset the password on the 1700 you need to use the console port and do the  password recovery process.
this is the link for that process.

After you do the password recovery and are able to log in via the console port. go into the exec prompt be entering the enable command. you should see this
Router#
now type  "show run"
look for the "ip http server" command. If tis is present and you  have an ip assigned to an interface on the router you should be able to access the router by the web browser and it should have a web interface that allows you to configure the router.
IF it does it should be pretty simply to setup the router using the wizards. Thsi si a good way to get up and running.
try it and lets us know what happens
