I am installing a new E1200 for a friend and I noticed that the default SSID is GoldTiger where the manual says it should be
ciscoxxxxx. Does this indicate that the router has been set up before and maybe I should reset it to it's default state before proceeding?

where did you notice the SSID, GoldTiger? did you run the setup CD? it is more likely that your computer picked up that wireless signal, from a nearby access point.
if your computer only has a wired connection and it picked up that SSID of GoldTiger while you are running the setup CD or setting it up using the setup page, then yes, it is possible that someone already setup the router. i would suggest returning it to your retail store just to make sure that you are getting a new router, and not one that has been returned by a customer in case it had a previous defect/problem

I saw the SSID both from Cisco Connect and by browsing to 192.168.1.1 from a hardwire conection. I think I will try resetting the router to factory defaults and changing the SSID before taking it back to the store.
Thanks for your help.
