Simple to do: you can log onto the router by entering this in your browser:
http://192.168.1.1
a username/password dialog will pop up. enter admin for password and leave username blank.

all settings can be accessed this way. Other than this you didn't give enough information. for example whether or not you were connecting wireless or wired.

Sir

Checking or verifying the wireless settings of your Linksys Cable Gateway is important when connecting wireless devices to your network. This is the best route to take if you are unsure of your gateway's wireless settings.
The wireless settings that you need to take note of are:
  • SSID
  • SSID Broadcast
  • Wireless Security
To check the wireless settings on the Linksys gateway follow the steps below:
Step 1:
Access the gateway's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here. If you are using a Maccomputer to access the cable gateway's web-based setup page, click here.
Step 2:
Click the Wireless tab.

Step 3:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID). It is recommended to change the SSID to something unique.

Step 4:
Click the Wireless Security sub-tab and take note of the current Wireless Encryption Level and the Wireless SSID Broadcast if it is set to Enable or Disable.

If Wireless Encryption Level is set to No Encryption, this means that the wireless security on the gateway is disabled.
If Wireless Encryption Level is set to 64 Bit Encryption or 128 Bit Encryption, check the value under Default Key and take note of the Wireless WEP Key that corresponds to it.

Can I make this a secure router?


Yes.

Enable encryption, found on the wireless security settings tab.

You will also need to set up encryption on your wireless devices, such as other laptops, Wii, etc.

The Manual, which can be downloaded from Linksys (assuming a Linksys router) gives complete instructions.
