Doubtful.  But only the LAN can be configured from the console (except for
"categorizing" the ports, which can *only* be done from the console).  
Any remaining interfaces need to be configured via the WebGUI.  Until
then, they're inoperative.  The options are also somewhat
limited; e.g. only a "WAN" interface can be a DHCP client.

Yup.  That's what happens when you do a disk-image install. :-)
