Any particular Linksys model router? The hardware version (from the
serial number tag) and the firmware version (from the setup page)
would also be nice.

If the restrictions were only for the wireless network, you have a
WEP, WPA, or WPA2 encryption key setup on the "wireless security"
page. Use a wired ethernet connection to do the setup if you lost it.
