Default Router Installation

I have an old router, it has no brand name or anything. (I've spent months trying to find out what company builds this router. to no avail. )Thus I cannot find the Username/Password in order to portforward. I want to get a new router and get rid of this NAT error.

My question is: How difficult is it to install a new router? Is it simply unplugging the old router and plugging in the new one or is there software to install?

Which router would you choose if you were going to buy a new one. (Not wireless)

Plug N Play. No software.

I stick with Linksys routers.

This is with every router right? I'm assuming so.
