Does the router have WiFi at all? At least on the product spec page it doesn't mention it ... – DaDaDom Nov 26 '10 at 13:23
Yes it does. I'm at my laptop using the wifi now. – Dian Nov 26 '10 at 13:40
You are talking about a Linksys router in your question, but the screenshots are from a Prolink router ... – DaDaDom Nov 26 '10 at 16:08
Idk, why that says Prolink. The actual router says LINKSYS in big ass letters though. – Dian Nov 30 '10 at 6:29

I googled it based on the model from your screenshot. Here's a pdf - look at page 163:

I heard that Google is a good search engine... Joke :) – gulbrandr Nov 26 '10 at 14:28
Ooh..I didn't think of that, I only googled Linksys WRT54G which is what is written on the router. So thanks! – Dian Nov 30 '10 at 6:31

The option to set the password to control access to the router itself is probably on the "Admin" tab.

There doesn't seem to be a "Wifi" or "Wireless" tab. That's where the option to set the passcode or passphrase (depending on whether you've enabled WPA or WEP2 access) would be found.

Have you checked the "Bridging" or "Services" tabs?

I posted the admin tab screen shot just now. Do you know where I can change the password? – Dian Nov 26 '10 at 13:41
@Dian - what's on the "..ser Config" link? Just click links. As long as you don't click "Save" or "Reset" type links you won't change anything. – ChrisF Nov 26 '10 at 13:44
It's the user config, that screenshot is actually the user config page. I haven't found any link which asks for the password or anything, I'm still trying to find it. :( – Dian Nov 26 '10 at 13:48
@Dian - in that case check out the manual @QuiXilver found. – ChrisF Nov 26 '10 at 13:50
