Connect the router directly to your computer via a Ethernet cable, type 192.168.1.1 on your browser, if is new from factory, username leave it in blank and password: admin
Once ou enter on the web based configuration you can go to the wireless section, set a name for your WiFi network (SSID) select WPA or WPA2 security and type the passfrase you want to sue to allow wifi devices to connect to your network (ex mywifiisawesome) leave channel like it was.
Disable mac address filter. or any other stuff you don't know about. every time you make a change save it and apply it, at the end, go to administration and change the router password from admin to a new one, this password is not to connect to your WiFi network this is only to access to the router config. the passfrase is the one you must type on your computers to access the WiFi.
