    You need to connect your computer directly to your router with a cable to be able to configure it. Your router does not need to be connected to the internet until you get the firewall password and device name changed. While you are at it you should setup whatever wireless protection protocol you are going to use before you try to connect wirelessly. While you aren't connected to the internet you'll not need Zone-alarm running. OK?
