Since all computers are online, you do not need to change any setting on the router for the computers to share file or resources.
If you are using Windows XP - try this link:
I hope that helps!
Good luck and have a nice say!

SOURCE: Secure network
You should use the strongest form of encryption that all of your
wireless devices can support. If they can all do WPA2, then use WPA2.
Otherwise you can use WPA.
With WPA or WPA2 you should also use a strong key (sometimes called password or passphrase).
To set up wireless security, you must use a computer that is wired to the router.
Where to find the router settings: The other settings are all found in the "Wireless" or the "Security" section of the router's setup pages, located at 192.168.1.1
First, give your router a unique SSID. Don't use "linksys".
Make sure "SSID Broadcast" is set to "enabled".
Next, leave the router at its default settings (except for the unique SSID), and then use your pc to connect wirelessly to the router. Test your wireless Internet connection and make sure it is working correctly. You must have a properly working wireless connection before setting up wireless security.
To implement wireless security, you need to do one step at a time, then verify that you can still connect your wireless computer to the router.
Next, encrypt your wireless system using the highest level of encryption that all of your wireless devices will support. Common encryption methods are:
WEP - poor (see note below)
WPA (sometimes called PSK, or WPA with TKIP) - good
WPA2 (sometimes called PSK2, or WPA with AES) - best
WPA and WPA2 sometimes come in versions of "personal" and "enterprise". Most home users should use "personal". Also, if you have a choice between AES and TKIP, and your wireless equipment is capable of both, choose AES. With any encryption method, you will need to supply a key (sometimes called a "password").
The wireless devices (computers, printers, etc.) that you have will need to be set up with the SSID, encryption method, and key that matches what you entered in the router.
Retest your system and verify that your wireless Internet connection is still working correctly.
And don't forget to give your router a new login and password.
**Picking Passwords (keys): You should never use a dictionary word as a password. If you use a dictionary word as a password, even WPA2 can be cracked in a few minutes. When you pick your login password and encryption key (or password or passphrase) you should use a random combination of capital letters, small letters, and numbers, but no spaces. A login password should be 12 characters or more. WPA and WPA2 passwords should be at least 24 characters. Note: Your key, password, must not have any spaces in it.
Most home users should have their routers set so that "remote management" of the router is disabled. If you must have this option enabled, then your login password must be increased to a minimum of 24 random characters.
One additional issue is that Windows XP requires a patch to run WPA2. Go to Microsoft Knowledgebase, article ID=917021 and it will direct you to the patch.
Sadly, the patch is not part of the automatic Windows XP updates, so lots of people are missing the patch.
WEP is no longer recommended. The FBI has demonstrated that WEP can be cracked in just a few minutes using software tools that are readily available over the Internet.

Easiest thing to do is reset the router to factory defaults and then reconfigure it. There should be a recessed button on the back of the router, press it in with a paperclip or something and hold down for about 20 seconds. If it was a wep key, there are utils like wepcrack that can try and scan your wireless net and crack the key for you but really, that would be more work than just resetting and reconfiguring the device.

The IP Address is 192.168.1.1. The default username is left blank and password is "admin".
Hold down the Reset button on the WRT160N for about 30 seconds.
