Need a little more info. Are trying to connect wirelessly? Are you just using the factory defaults on the wrt? Mac or PC? Operating system?

If you're using the defaults then no security is enabled. Am I understanding this correctly? You have not set up the device?

You may need to hook it up to your pc via ethernet. You don't need to be hooked up to the internet/your modem to set it up.

I don't think so. You should really set it up via hardwire.

You will lose connection. Just search for wireless networks again and enter the security code.

You need to physically connect your PC to your router using an ethernet cable.
