Are you using a hardwired computer while changing the settings of the router? if not, use a hardwired computer to properly save any settings on the router since with wireless conenction, it may experience interference during the process of saving the information that's why it's not going through. if so, there could be a problem with the hardware itself that's why it's not taking the settings. try to reset the router first and reconfigure all your settings and check if it'll save everything. if not, you may need to upgrade the firmware of your router. click here to download the firmware.

hope this'll help you

Give it 10 seconds or so to initialize and then plug an ethernet cable into your wall jack and into the port on the back of the router marked Internet. Next get another ethernet cable and plug one end into your laptop and the other into one of the ports labeled 1-4 on the router. Your computer is now properly connected to the router to begin its setup and configuration.
  2. Next open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.
  3. You should see the Setup page shown below.

HOW DO I SET SECURITY ON ROUTER


Open a browser window and go to 192.168.1.1. At the user/password screen, leave the user blank and enter admin as the password. (This is assuming you've never changed the settings of the router). On the router webpage, click on the word Wireless at the top of the page and then click on the word Wireless Security under that. Change the security mode to WEP and select 128 bits in the drop down beside WEP Encryption. Now enter a passphrase in the passphrase box and click generate. The key 1 is what you'll need to enter into the wireless devices when prompted for a access key. Now, you want to change the default password to get into the router so someone cannot easily come and change your settings on you. Before you leave the Wireless Security page, be sure to click save settings. Once you are able to get back into the web page, click on administration at the top of the page and change the password for the router and click save settings. Your router is now set up for security. Be sure to keep the key, passwords, etc. in a safe place.

Does not save wireless security settings


Encrypting the network blocks any unauthorized computer from accessing the network and using its broadband connection. To enable WEP on the router,

1. Open your default browser and enter the following IP address into the address bar: <http://192.168.1.1>
2. When prompted for a username and password type “admin” on password, unless you have previously changed the password of the router, and hit OK. This will bring you to the Setup page of the router.
3. Depending on the firmware of the router. Click on the WEP Key Settings button. Or you can click the Wireless tab and select Wireless Security. Or you can click the Security Tab and select Wireless.
4. From the WEP/Security Settings window, you may enable 64 or 128 bit WEP then enter your Password on the Passphrase field and click on Generate. Make sure to copy the characters on Key 1-4 on a piece of paper before you hit APPLY. You will be needing this once you enable WEP on the wireless PC’s. Also take note that if you enable 64 or 128 bit on the router, this should be the same WEP level that you will enable on the wireless cards.

To put in the network key in your wireless adapter follow the steps below:

WEP Encryption XP's Wireless Zero Configuration ( Advisable for XP PC's )

1. Go to start>Control Panel>Network Connections>Right click on the Wireless connection then click on Properties>Click on the Wireless Networks Tab
2. From the Wireless Network Connection properties window, under the Preferred network click on Add then type your SSID on the SSID field and check the box for Data Encryption then then uncheck “The Key is provided for me Automatically”
3. Type your WEP Keys on both the Network Key and Confirm Network Key field. (This set of characters should be identical to the WEP Keys Settings on the router. For 64-bit WEP you should have 10 characters, for 128-bit you should type in 26 characters.) Then hit OK and then OK again.
4. After hitting OK a pop-up should appear on the lower right hand side saying “Connected”. Try pointing your mouse arrow on the lower double monitor icon.
5. Restart your PC

WEP Encryption using the Linksys WLAN Utility ( 98/Me/2000 )

Make sure that the WLAN utility of the Linksys adapter is already is installed. If not, you may follow follow the procedures below for "Installing the Linksys WLAN Utility"

1. Click on Start then Programs, then click on anything that says something about the Linksys Wireless Adapter. On the menu, select either WLAN Utility or Wireless Configuration Utility
2. On the lower right-hand side of your screen, double click on the Linksys Icon. This will bring up the WLAN Configuration Utility.
3. Click on the Profiles Tab. Make sure that the SSID that is set to default is your routers SSID. Highlight Default then hit Edit.
4. Select Profile Wizard. Continue to click the Next button, until you get to the Security Settings Window.

OR select Expert Mode then Next. Then click on Security Settings
5. Set the same WEP level that you have enabled on the router. ( ex. 64 or 128 )
6. Type your WEP Keys. This set of characters should be identical to the WEP Keys Settings on the router. For 64-bit WEP you should have 10 characters, for 128-bit you should type in 26 characters.
7. Hit OK then Next. On Confirm New Settings click Yes. And then click “Activate New Settings Now”
