You can try to reset your router
Reset the Linksys WRT150N wireless home router if you are experiencing connection issues or have forgotten your customized router login information. Resetting the Linksys WRT150N will erase your Internet connection settings, wireless security preferences and all other personal settings from the router. This procedure will restore the WRT150N back to its factory state.
1 Locate the "Reset" button on the back panel of the router. The button is situated to the right of the Ethernet ports and to the left of the power port.
2 Press and hold the "Reset" button.
3 Release the "Reset" button after approximately five seconds. The device resets
Tips & Warnings
Use the Linksys WRT150N setup CD-ROM to run the setup wizard and reconfigure the router after the reset.

Problem can't be solved as described, a fixer would need more details.
What kind of modem/router is it?
What instructions are you working from so far (you say, "as instructed" so I take it you're looking at a Quick Start Guide of some sort?)
How are you connected to it?
What http address are you going to (E.g. some routers use 192.168.1.1, others 192.168.1.254 or various alternatives)
What happens when you enter that address on a browser?
Have you set your computer's address to a nearby address so it can talk to the route?
If I had one guess with not enough information, I'd say you need to set your PC to an address one different from the target you're going to.
