wrt-54G level_15_access

I have been trying to access my router. I get a page to enter user name and password. I had changed some settings yesterday because I forgot the user name and password to access my wireless connection. After I reset to factory settings, I made the new username and password and wrote the
pair down. However, when I tried to have my notebook access the wireless network, I could not. I went to check my router settings when I got a
user name and password prompt which I did not get yesterday. I keep getting the message "The server 198.162.1.1 at level_15_access requires a username and password." I reset the router for the obligatory 10 secs. I saw on my notebook that my network is now unsecure. I tried using the default user name "linksys" and default password "admin". I still got the same prompt and error message. I, then, looked further on this forum and saw someone said to hold the reset button for 3 minutes and power down the router. I did that. I, still, got the same user name/password prompt. However this time it worked. I was able to get in with the default user name and password this third try to get to reset it.

The private default IP address of the router is 192.168.1.1.

198.162.1.1 is a public IP address and some web server of someone else.
