telnet error when trying to connect to linksys wag120n router

typing in cmd "telnet 192.168.1.1" gives me this error "could not open connection to the host on port 23". I tried this same command on my old router and it worked just fine. so it has to be the router right? what settings should I change on my pc or router to fix this?
