Could you give us some idea of exactly how you are trying to configure it.  For now, I would refer you to http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4024&p_sid=zlFHXcSi&p_lva=3967&lid=5556261879B04#

This will most likely help you set up your router, and answer any questions you have.

Have a great day!
