I need easy to follow instructions so I can secure my wireless network

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 192.168.0.1 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 192.168.0.1 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.

From your network connections. right click the wireless connection and click on status and see the support tap. you should see details about your network. so it might be 192.168.0.2 or 192.168.0.3

First off, check your IPCONFIG /ALL.
Unless somebody got very creative, the entry for DHCP server is going to be your router. put that IP into your browser and see if that gets you in the right direction.
