You need to be connected to the modem via Eathernet cable. The WPA can not be set up using the wireless.

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.
Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.
Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed
