Greetings - Let's go over the settings in your router:
1) On the Home menu screen go to wireless in the left column
2) Wireless band should be setup as 802.11g
3) Mode should say access point
4) SSID should have a name - should also be the same name used on the laptop
5) SSID broadcast should be enabled
6) ***Important - For now set Authentication to open system. Make sure that is how your laptop WIFI card is setup. You can setup security after you get the two connected
7) Super G mode should be disabled
6) Move one tab on top over to advanced make sure data rate is auto
Try those settings (making sure the laptop settings match) and you should be able to get connected. If not, copy this text and return here and paste in into another request for help and someone will take you the rest of the way.
o access the Access Points Setup, and the LAN IP address has not changed, then computer must have an IP address of 192.168.1.XXX. If the Access Point is plugged in via Ethernet to a Linksys Router and the computer is also connected a Linksys router via Ethernet, then the PC should already have a correct IP address (unless the LAN IP Address of the Router has been changed). If unsure, please assign the computer a Static IP Address so it will have an IP address in the same range as the Access Points IP Address.
If the Access Point is being connected to a hub/switch/router via Ethernet, then use the cable that was provided with Access Point. If the Access Point is being connected to the computer directly, then a Cross Over cable must be used. Cross over cables can be purchased at most electronic stores.
Remember: When ever a change is made in the Setup of the Access Point, the Apply button must be used to save the settings to the Access Point.
Open a web browser (such as Internet Explorer or Netscape)
When the browser opens, go to the "Address" bar and input the IP address of the Access Point.
Default IP addresses:
WAP11 v2.8 - 192.168.1.251
WAP54G v1.1 - 192.168.1.245
A "User Name" and "Password" prompt will appear, leave the "User Name" field blank and input the Access Points password (The default password of a Linksys Access Point is admin) into the "Password" field.
If you are setting up a new router for DSL connection, i presume that you already know the login credentials to access your router's admin interface. By default, depending on your router's model, you can access and configure it at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 using a web browser and make sure that computer you are using is connected to the router through an ethernet cable.
Default login credentials: user name: admin password: admin (or try also leaving it blank)
When you are at the web interface, go to a link known as SETUP and there you can setup your connection. If your DSL provides you a user name and password, then you can also enter them there. Then save your settings.
To allow internet broadcasting using wifi, go to a link known as "WIRELESS" and setup encryption there using WAP, WPA2, or WEP or any other recommended encryption protocol. Through this, you can prevent other users near your place to use your internet connection without informing you.
Perhaps the request for User Name and Password are from your router? If you do not know the login requirements, might I suggest you redo the setup of your router? Point your Interenet Explorer at http://192.168.2.1 . Log in ships without a password, so just click Submit and proceed with setting your Network Name (SSID) and whatever security you want to use.
Answer: Pressing Enter at login request will get you in to your router. BUT please do as outlined above to secure your router. There is a manual available from router Login as well, accessed as stated above.

On the IP Address Settings screen, you will need to select one of
the following three "Custom" options: Automatic, Manual or PPPoE.
usually used for DSL broadband connections that require you to enter a
user ID and password. You would normally only use this connection type
if you have a wireless access point without a router. It should only be
used if you are connecting directly to your ISP without using a home
gateway router OR using a router that does not authenticate your PPPoE
connection for you.
To use PPPoE settings:
On the [IP Address Settings] screen, select [PPPoE] and press the right directional button.
You will be asked for your PPPoE user name (or user ID) and password. You will need to get this from your ISP.
Note : When entering user names and passwords,
keep in mind that User Names and Passwords are often case sensitive, so
make sure that you enter them EXACTLY the same as they were created,
including the same UPPER and lowercase letters, where appropriate.
Once you have entered the user name and password, press the right directional button to continue through the following screens.
Enter any DNS and proxy settings you may need.
Check your settings to make sure that they are correct.
Once complete, a list of settings will appear. Make sure all settings are correct and then press button to save the settings.

display the results ("Succeeded" or "Failed"). If you have successfully
connected to your network, congratulations, you have completed the
network setup process.
1) Connect a computer wired directly to your accesspoint.
2) Assign a static IP on the computer with the range of 192.168.2.x (x is any number from 3-253).
3) If it prompts you for a user name and a password, user name is admin and password is smcadmin and click Login.
4) Select Advanced Setup. It will give you the window for the access point.
5) Select Security under Radio Interface 2. You can see which security is set on your AP. If it is set as WPA, the shared key is your network key. If WEP, the network key across the selected key is your password.
Take note that these instructions are if the IP settings of the Wireless AP have not been changed. If it is, you have to ask what is the IP first.
