can't connect to Linksys router,

Specs: Windows XP

I am trying to set up a wireless repeater at home and it requires that I get configuration settings from my wireless router. However I can't access the router configuration screen. The router is a Linksys WRT54G. I am trying to access it using the IP address I keep getting an error that says the page cannot be accessed. Here's what I have done so far:
-I have tried using both my a wireless and wired connection to the router. I confirmed the internet connection before attempting this.
-I have tried using internet explorer and Firefox
-Some posts on this site suggested trying, and, neither worked (they timed out)
-I typed ipconfig and into the cmd prompt and found that IS my default gateway
-I tried adding the "s" ( and got a username and password prompt. I do not believe I ever set up a username and password for my router.

Help! And please speak English, using instructions if you can help. I am not very IT literate. Thanks!!!!!!!!

Try using the https again and leave the username field blank and for Password use "admin".

Worst support ever received!!! I tried to use the online chat after searching for an hour in the forums, guide me, etc to waste 15 more minutes on the chat before I was informed that since my product was no longer under warranty that the online chat could not help me. Then I was provided a phone number that was supposed to be able to help me and was then told I would have to PAY to be supported. Could CISCO possibly make it any harder to use their product??? And what is the most frustrating is that if the IP Address provided in the product paperwork was functional ( I would have been able to address my issues on my own. Extremely dissatisfied customer and in future router needs will steer clear of ANY CISCO products.
