To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption (ie. password) to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

It is the WiFi password to the wireless router that it is asking for not your personal password

How can i change password on my wifi so nobody else can use it anymore


Most wifi units have an IP address you can use with your web browser to change the wifi password and various other settings.
Look online for a manual for your specific router. Get the IP address for it and put it in the address bar and turn on password and even make your own password.

Won't connect to wifi


When you get a router, it would usually come with a password, automatically locking the WiFi for added protection. You can find the password on the router. Since you said that putting the password makes no difference, it could be because the password was not input correctly, where you have to put the exact capitalization of a letter.
