Click "Start", then "RUN", then type "CMD" hit enter.
type "ipconfig /all"
copy the gateway and type in internet explorer:
" (gateway IP address)
The login will be located in your manual. There are no "real" good methods to a secure wireless network yet ;-(
DHCP is in no way a security method.
I agree with MDChaser on the proper method for the most secure router would be:
1) WEP 128Bit. WEP="Wired Equivalent Privacy"
2) Do NOT broadcast ssid, THEN make it something unique.
3) ACL's if you got em.
4) DISABLE dhcp all together.
5) Change default Channel.

I'm going from the point that you have a half decent router. All Linksys wireless access points retain MAC addresses and each MAC address keeps a static IP address. MAC addresses are not broadcasted so they cannot be spoofed. If your worried about security, you don't buy a cheap crappy dlink router or whatever anyway.
Your getting there bro, but a little deeper and you will see DHCP uses "leases", therefore, if someone turns a computer off, it will re-lease (no pun intended) the IP address to that computer. For that reason, it's no good.
Keep in mind there are NO real security methods for WEP based wireless. The problem is being worked on and other standards are due to come out.
If you want a secure network, disable wireless, and unplug the internet. ;-)
