I have a cable modem connected to a Linksys wireless router connected via ethernet cable to a PC and wirelessly to another PC. The latter connection has not been established but is the intention. I did not set up the router. I know I can find the router settings at 192.168.1.1 from the wire connection PC. My question is how can I CHANGE the router settings, not just find out what they are. The setting I am most likely to want to change is the Web Encryption. If not set to Disabled, I may want to reset it to disabled without changing any other router settings. The router is a 2.4 Ghz Wireless-G model. I do not have the exact model number and need an answer without supplying that information if possible.
I believe, per phone call to Linksys, that pushing the button on the back of the router will reset Web encryption to disabled but that will reset ALL the settings, not just Web Encryption. Assume I have the router admin account name and password.
