locked out of settings

Specs: Windows XP
Used the CD to set up new broadband, followed directions to get into settings but didn't know to remove internet connection first. Managed to change name of router but things went wrong when I attempted to change password to secure the wireless. Now can't get in, just get a pink page 401 unauthorised, authorisation required. Unsure about the small software the page says to download. zippy

There is a pin hole somewhere on the router. Hold it in, with a pin of course, for at least a minute. That will reset it.

First you connect WIRED. Sounds like you are connecting WIRELESSLY and wireless isn't configured correctly.

You ALWAYS connect wired to setup the router.

No reset to factory defaults if this is the case [connecting wirelessly not wired].

I had connected wired, the ethernet cable was in comp and router. I have used the reset, then have been able to get into the router settings and and now working again but too scared to attempt password protecting the connection. Email also working and all lights lit up on router that should be. Just not sure of the correct way to change the password.

What router is it? It should be simple to change the password. You can always reset it again.

Most people don't change the default password. It's good that you want to do it. Enable MAC filtering too. Those two things give your network extra protection.

Thanks for the help. It is a Dynalink ADSL2+ 4-port wireless. Will give it another go. Was trying to 'secure' it so others cannot access like I could access their wireless.

Don't stop trying. That's very important. I've been able to access way too many networks either because people were lazy or they just didn't know better.
