It needs an IP address. A router hands out IP addresses using DHCP in most default settings. Your computer has to be set to "Obtain an IP address automatically: and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" in (TCP/IP) Properties of LAN Properties for your Device name. You can also use hardcoded IP addresses. It's pretty complicated.

you will have to access the router by the ip address.
(192.168.??.??)once you log in, user name blank and password admin. you will have to set up wireless security. there are several ways and each that is selected has a brief tutorial.

Sometimes, people who are gamers or use Ipods, leave the router unsecure but limit the wireless access by mac address or by ip address so only those wireless devices gain access.
