Install a txt config file onto a out of the box Cisco 2800 Router

OK first off I am NOT a network guy so I need some help here.  We have a new out of the box Cisco 2800 Router not hooked to network.  We want to power it on and copy the txt file config I have made from the current Cisco 2821 Router.  So I power the router on then plug the console cable from port of the router to my PC.  use a SSH telnet session tog et to the router and have that txt file on the pc Im using to connect.  Can I then load the txt file to configure this router?

Console cable and than telnet (typically you need additional configuration to use ssh).
You can simply copy paste configuration into terminal software you are using in config mode.

enable
conf t

and then just paste it in small chunks in terminal window (typically paste keyboard shortcut is "shift + insert" (or right click))

If you want to apply configuration from usb of tftp server (or copy it first on flash) example file name with configuration is file.txt
command is:

enable
copy usbflash0:file.txt run
copy flash:file.txt run
etc

And you need to save it (otherwise it will all gone after device is reloaded):

enable
  we mem
or
 copy run start

OK so the copy seemed to work but how can I test.  Can I plug a network cable to say Ethernet 0/0 and ping that address the config files shows for it?

OK I guess what I should say is I plugged a network cable into Ethernet 0/0 and pinged the IP address the config shows but I dont get a response.

Did you configure
interface <type> 0/0
 no shut
and do you have needed routes on all involved devices?

What is output of

Your interfaces are shut down, you need to enable those.
interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 no shut
interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 no shut

administratively down means interface is shut
