N210 extreme newbie

I just received my N210 in the mail. I am extremely new at this.
I installed the WBX board into the N210.
I powered up the N210. And LED B and F stay lit. B means MIMO cable
link. D means CPLD loaded. This doesn’t seem to make sense since I
don’t even have a MIMO cable installed. Do I need to load firmware?
(since LED D isn’t lit. I would have thought the firmware would come
pre-loaded.

I am currently loading the latest version of Ubuntu on my laptop.
I will be installing gnuradio, grc, wxPython. Then I am not sure where
to go from there.

Do I need to install the UHD to use the N210?

I have played with gunradio in the past without the hardware.

If anyone can point me to a link for more information that would be
great. I am really excited about finally being able to buy and play
with this HW.

Thanks

Yes. Firmware and FPGA image needs to be loaded. But before you can do
that, you need to configure your laptop with UHD. Once that’s done you
load the firmware using the utilities provided in UHD. refer to
http://www.ettus.com/uhd_docs/manual/html/index.html for details. The
firmware and FPGA images are provided in the UHD package.

Firmware isn’t pre-loaded. Once you load the firmware the LED D
disappears and LED B is lit

Yes, refer to above link
