So I bought this linksys router last week and installed network magic that comes with it(CD). I didn't know that it was just trial version, and today's my last day of trial. Do I need this program to have internet connection(I have desktop wired, and laptop wireless from the router)? Or can I just uninstall this thing coz its really annoying due to the nagging pop ups?

It depends.
This is what it does: http://download.cnet.com/Cisco-Network-Mag...4-10402331.html

Network Magic eliminates home networking hassles and helps you do more with your network. It lets you easily print from any of your home computers to any of your printers, share music, photos, and other files across all of your computers and operating systems with a few clicks. Network Magic also helps you troubleshoot and repair broken wireless Internet connections and protect your wireless network from intruders. Additionally, Network Magic gives you an up-to-date map of your network, and lets you manage the security of all your PCs from one centralized dashboard.


It's more, or less convenience tool.
You can set all the above by yourself, depending on your skills and what range of settings you need.

For basic needs, today's routers are basically plug-and-play devices.

Well, I know how to configure the basic settings for the router, so does this mean that I can uninstall network magic and have no problems with my internet connection?
