Remote Router Access For Linksys WRT54GL

Remote Router Access For Linksys WRT54GL

I just set up a wireless network at home using a Linksys WRT54GL. All was fine except that I can still access, the configuration setup page of the router, within the local wireless after I disabled "Remote Management". I think if remote access is indeed disabled, one can access my router setup page only by using a cable connecting from his computer to the router. Is this true or am I wrong?

"Correct. Remote Management is disabled by default and when enabled, it allows web access through the WAN port (basically the internet) on port 8080 (again default). LAN access - both wired and wireless - is unaffected by this.
