Would you like a step by step tutorial with visuals included?

Anyway, usually routers are configured through a web browser. I connect to my router configuration by going to http://198.168.1.1/ and my LInksys router brings out a GUI interface.

Luftwaffe probably meant 192.168.1.1 , correct me if I'm wrong Smilie

That adress is a private adress which means you can't reach it through the Internet. Check out the manual that came with your router, most likely you can configure it through your browser by typing the IP-adress specified in your manual for example:
http://192.168.0.1/ or the like

hope this helps
