It seems you are on a browser trying to access the router set-up menu. That is not or how any user trying to join the network. The way to access is by physically putting a LAN cable to your ports router or by unsecured wifi access. That is why you have to password protect yor wifi through your router setup page. Look for the manual of your router or call your provider to understand this procedure.

No this is not for people to join.
It is for you to enter the setup procedure using the browser.
As jhayz said, other people can connect to your network by plugging into one of the LAN ports or wirelessly if you let them.

Most likely you cannot do any setup by radio. You, as the master of the router, must plug in.
At this point on the screen you shouled enter your user name and password. If you have not yet setup the password, then it's some default Verizon uses - perhaps they wrote it down for you?

Router should let you in.

There you will find a lot of places, most of which you probably should not change if Verizon set it up for you.

What you may want to change is permissions for the wireless people.
I saw all of this yesterday in my friends house -- they were putting MAC of my computer into the router and that was done in the Wireless security (approximate wording) and ADVANCED. It worked right away and I was connected.

Another thing you can change, you should change, is the default password to the router.

Finally, you should set up WPA2 encryption phrase - first do in the router, then tell Windows about it. Reboot, enter the phrase just this one time and you should be good to go.
Your guests, if they want to use wireless, will have to enter that phrase when they want to connect. Intruders have no chance.

That's just a brief summary. You have to read the manual or ask Verizon for help. Their FIOS help is good and quick.
