You have to go into your internet browser and enter some address, I beleive it is "192.168.2.1" Try and copy that (without the quotations) and paste it into the address bar, no http:// or anything.
If not, Check the linksys manual.

well it depends on each router how u setup the secruity but .

if you like possibly in wireless setting and security settings then there should be options for WEP WPA or WPA-TSK i think it is enable 1 of them and enter your key.

you need to find your default gateway (start>run>type "cmd" then type "ipconfig" in the black box).
type this into your browser.
then login to your router (usually username: admin password: password)
then find the wireless bit and set encryption if it isnt already. id suggest nothing less than wpa. wep is crap and so is having it unsecure
you could have mac filtering aswell but its sooo easy to crack so i wouldnt bother
