I need easy to follow instructions so I can secure my wireless network, I have a Linksys wireless router, and on previous occasions I had secured a wireless router by using which gave me access to the router and the software that helped me create a password for my wireless router without using the WEP encryption tool.  However, now when I enter in my browsers url it takes me directly to the SBC DSL Modem and I cannot find my way into the wireless router, any help would be greatly appreciated.
