I actually FOUND the solution at the linksys community forum site. It's weird, and I quote [kiefmoon], "I beat my head against this issue for the past few months, for the same reason as you: I'd built out a Windows Home Server, which can configure a home router automatically via UPnP, so I happily enabled it on the router, only to be locked out of the web-based configuration page.
Good news though! I just figured out the cause of the issue -- and it's really dumb:
You turn on UPnP on the Passwords tab, right? Well, if you look around on that page, you'll notice that, along with the option to enable UPnP, there are two password fields filled with asterisks. I think most people would assume that if they don't change anything in those fields, then click Apply, that the password has not been changed. And they'd be wrong. I don't know what the password gets changed to at that point, but it's not "admin".
...So the fix is: when you enable UPnP, do yourself a favor and enter a password in those fields (ideally something sronger than "admin" ). That way, you'll actually know what the password is when you get prompted for it."

SOURCE: Enabling upnp
You need to access the router's setup page. The default IP address of Belkin router is 192.168.2.1. Launch IE and type 192.168.2.1 on the address field. It doesn't need a username/password by default. So when a windown pop up asking for one just leave the fields blank and click ok.
Once you're in the setup page, you may now be able to configure the router with the settings you need.
Hope this helps!

When changing the advanced settings on the Belkin router, you should change the default password.
To change the password, go to Administrator Password. Type in a new password. Make sure you remember the password, otherwise, you will need to reset the router back to default settings.
I hope this helps.
