Typically yes they will and it would be in the activation e-mail sent to you. It may not show routing protocol but should include IP address, Gateway and DNS information depending on the solution.

A config for the router at your end?  If that router belongs to you and not them, then not necessesarily although they might.  You should arrange for them to have an engineer available to work with you over the phone to bring the circuit up.  Settings for your config can be ironed out at that time.

yeah a config for the router at my end. even if the router belongs to us, sure we have no way of knowing the protocol that they are using on the edge routers, i would think they have to send a config. how else would you know the ip address etc

Well, naturally they are going to send you your addresses and usually protocol is agreed upon, but every router (there are about a million different models) and every router IOS is a little different so sending a config might work.  Or it might need tweaking at the time when it is actually connected.  You need to be in contact with the ISP when you try and bring the connection up.  Both ends need to to verify settings and that an error free conection has been achieved.

No, they don't give you a config.

They give you information you need to modify your config to work with their connection - such as IP addresses, encapsulation types, signaling, etc.

I thought you were asking do they provide a full, working configuration for your router - no.

They provide enough information for you to connect your router to them.
