I'm not sure I understand when you mean "was it detected during the
install procedure".

For the 7800N there wasn't anything to install. I simply plugged the
rounter into the power adapter then connected a laptop directly to it
via an ethernet port. If I remember correctly I had to manually set the
laptops IP address to initially talk to the 7800N in order to turn on
the DHCP server. Once that was done I connected the 7800N to my network
and all my computers were able to communicate just fine.
