I'd start by resetting the router again so you can access the setup page.

 Then download the firmware from linksys (Go to linksys.com -> Support -> Enter your router model number -> Click on ‘Get Downloads’ -> Select Version number for your wireless router -> Click on the download link under firmware section, which typically shows the following information.)  

Save the firmware image to your desktop, then log into the router, click on the 'Administration' section, and click the Firmware Upgrade tab.  Then click browse and locate the firmware image from your computer.  Then click upgrade.  That's it!  The upgrade may take a few minutes.

There is no need to have it connected to the internet to do this.  Once you have the firmware package on your local computer, all that needs to be plugged into the router is that computer and a power source.
