Hello trinijazz,

To accomplish the setup of the router, you need to be using a computer that is connected directly, harwired, into the router itself. If you don't have two computers, use the laptop but connect it into the router using the ethernet port, and ensure that the wireless on the laptop is off.
Open up your browser window and Enter in your browsers address bar, no HTTP or anything, just the numbers, and press enter. A login box will appear that is asking for a User Name and Password. They are both, in lower case: admin then click on Login. This will take you to the Linksys Setup screen.

You have tabs at the top/center of the screen.
1) Click on the Setup tab and verify that in the drop down box it is set to: Auto Configuration-DHCP.Then verify that the time zone at the bottom is set accordingly. Do not make changes to any other settings on this screen.
2) Click on the Wireless tab at the top. Set the Wireless Network Mode to Mixed
Then choose a Network Name. This is the connection that you will connect your laptop to wirelessly.
Set the Wireless Channel to 11-2.462ghz
At Wireless SSID Broadcast click on Enable
3) Directly above the box where you entered MIXED, click on the sub-tab labeled Wireless Security
Security Mode: WPA2 Personal you can use WEP but WPA2 is more secure. If your laptop has connectivity issues with WPA2, try using WEP.
WPA Algorithms: I use TKIP+AES
WPA Shared Key: This is YOUR network key. Write this down and keep it in a safe place or just remember it. You will need this when you try and connect your laptop wirelessly.
Group Key Renewal: should already be set to a default of 3600
Click on the SAVE SETTINGS button
The last thing I do is I go back through each page and if some changes weren't saved I fill in the appropriate information and click the SAVE SETTINGS button for each page. You shouldn't have to but it doesn't hurt.
Last but not least, go to your laptop ( I would recommend restarting it) and turn on the wireless. You should see your newly created network and after choosing to Connect To A Network, enter your Network Key and you should be good to go.
Hope this helps

Try resetting the Linksys router.
To reset the Linksys back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON for 20 secs. then release the RESET button.
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
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 to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Wireless security

I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

Hi there, you don't need to install from the disk. Make sure your modem connects to your router and then the computer's LAN port is connected to the LAN port of the router. Open internet explorer and in the address line type this will connect you to the router's setup. On older Linksys routers the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin." You then can find the wireless setup to configure your router. Make sure if you use a WEP code you use the same code from your computer's wireless adaptor. Good Luck...
