Are you getting router from ISP which is not configured? Usually (and it's good practice), they give to you completely managed router and you even don't have access to that router.

If not - easiest way is to download Cisco Config Maker (ftp://ftp.cisco.com/pub/netmgmt/configmaker/), connect your PC it to router to console port and configure. This will create VERY SIMPLE, but working configuration.

Then, if you not satisfied with these easy things, go to Cisco website and look for configuration examples. This will push you back in your "knowledge level" - you will understand that you don't know anything and you will learn, learn, learn... And then you will come back to simpliest configuration, created by ConfigMaker :-) It's joke.
But again, primary source of information about Cisco equipment - www.cisco.com. Take small steps and you will get it.

Good luck.

Difficult to answer with so little information, but things to think about are:-
1. Draw a network diagramm with IP network addresses.
2. Assign IP addresses for the router's LAN interface and WAN Interface.
3. Decide on Routing. I will assume that this is a small LAN cluster with only a single route out into the WAN so no routing protocol is needed. The router needs a DEFAULT route to the other end of the WAN link.
4. Configure router as per manual (see www.cisco.com for detailed help).
5.LAN hosts will need a DEFAULT route to routers LAN IP Address to talk to hosts outside the LAN.

Hope this helps get you started.
