I have plugged in the modem directly into the computer that helps with the internet access for my PC, but we need internet access for 2 other PCs. But the problem is, when I try to enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar and logged in with username and password, it immediately takes me to a firewall page. I want to know how to reconfigure this ASAP. Linksys DB101520

I have not encountered a Linksys or Cisco router with that kind of model but anyway they usually have the same default ip address. Double check if your computer is really connected to one of the ethernet ports of the router. If a firewall page comes up that would mean your computer might be connected to another device. I suggest you disconnect the Linksys router from your main modem or router and leave a computer plug-in to it. You open command prompt on the computer and do ipconfig, if it comes up with the correct ip address on the local connection i.e. 192.168.1.100, go down to the next line and type ping 192.168.1.1. If you get good replies after you press enter then your router is working fine. You can try then if you can access the userinterface. Aside from using the address bar or another internet browser (anyway, you do not really have to be on line to access the page), use the command prompt and type there: start http://192.168.1.1. If it the log-on screen does not come up, disable proxy settings on the browser.
