if you're using wireless, try using the ethernet connection instead and see if that does anything. I had a router once and couldn't install software for it because I was connected wirelessly.

You'll need to input the code within a browser.
Look in the instruction manual, for the IP/user and password to talk to the router to get it set up.

I wouldn't worry. Its wired, so no one can access it anyway. At least, I don't think so.

Should be an option to change it on that page that appears.

During the initial router configuration, the installation wizard prompts you to set an administrative password and then sets up your router for WPA-PSK mode.

During the installation of the client, you are instructed to push the button on the front of the router. The backlit button, located on the lower left front corner of the router, is actually the "bridge" logo of Cisco (Linksys is a subsidiary of Cisco). Once this light begins flashing, you'll know the router is in configuration mode. Once in this mode, the client installation wizard instructs you to click on an icon, and the rest of the configuration is completed automatically. Within a few moments, you'll receive a confirmation screen indicating that you've successfully connected securely to the wireless access point.
