Configure the Router1.Step 1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter." 2.Step 2 Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank. 3.Step 3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup." 4.Step 4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP. 5.Step 5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password. 6.Step 6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
Make sure your cable/DSL cable from your wall outlet is plugged into the "Internet" port on your router, and a cable from one of the 4-ports is plugged into the network card on your PC. Then, open your browser and type in the IP address of the router (default is 192.168.1.1). The Linksys menu should appear, and you can begin to configure it from there.
I don't know what type of internet connection you have. If you have cable internet connection, you can copy the mac address of your modem to your router - that's what you call, cloning. If you have DSL connection, you can just obtain an IP Address from the modem to the router. If it's an Internet connection that is requires authentication, you can use the PPPoE type of connection. You can configure your router to any of the mentioned configuration above.
You cannot secure the wireless router over the Internet. Basically the wireless router is secured by opening a browser and entering the wireless router's URL configuration address.
To secure and set up encryption on your wireless router please follow my instructions - click on this link :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
The configuration URL for the Linksys is http://192.168.1.1 and the default login = admin and the default PW = admin
If you had your linksys router controlling the DSL connection, it was most likely a PPPoe connection requiring a username and password. Most cable companies have dynamic IP address and do not require a username or password.
Open your internet browser, IE, Firefox etc and go to 192.168.1.1 > Enter your router username and password, typically admin and admin
In the setup tab, change your connection FROM whatever is listed there and make sure it is Autumatic DHCP Save your settings, and restart the router.
This article describes how to manually configure a Linksys Router for broadband DSL
that uses PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) for authentication. http://www.betterbuilt.com/docs/ppoe_setup_07252005.pdf Click on this link or copy and paste the complete link into your browser.

The problem is the Linksys wireless router is not properly configured. Try downloading the automatic configuration file which can be accessed from the Linksys site for your specific model wireless router.
I have had that issue quite often and found that when you are using a router with DSL, the DSL modem and Router IP has a conflict because they are the same number. I suggest looking into a D-Link wireless router for use with DSL.
