Answers :

If this is a first install of a brand new Linksys router:
\015\012Just plug your cable modem to the back of your linksys router's internet port, then plug a computer to Port 1 on your router, type http://192.168.1.1 in your internet browser on the computer connected to Port 1, you will access the setup page of your linksys router (leave the user name field blank and type admin as password)
\015\012Now you can go to http://www.cas411.com/ShowArticle.aspx?ID=68 to setup your wireless securely, you do not want to just leave it at its default settings, as anybody could then use your internet access or worst, check what you are doing on your computer.
