You don't need the installation CD.

Can you connect to the Routers management interface.?

How are you trying to change security?

You usually need a temporary wired connection to the router in order to configure the wireless because as soon as you change anything you will lose the connection when doing it by wireless.

Do you have a manual for the router?

Yes, that will probably be the reason, you are making changes using a wireless connection, and that's the wrong way to do it.

You need to set up a wired connection (even if it's only temporary) to change any router settings related to wireless - - for obvious reasons.
