How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs ?

How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for DSL ISPs :

  • Connect the DSL Modem to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.

Wired Part Configuration:
Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
If it is not connected then we need to configure the wired part by following these steps.
Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)
Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.
Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.
Step 4: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.
If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.
Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.

Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.

If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected. You will not be able to go online in the wired computers.

In this case you need to connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online. If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

The above method is applicable for DSL ISPs only.

how do i install my router i have one care on my computer and it wont let me install my router. How do I bypass this?


disable all firewalls in the computer first(windows and any 3rd party firewall)....then install the router...also disable any software that prevents you from performing any task.... basically for router you need not install any software...all that you need to do is connect the cable coming from the modem to the "wan" port(yellow coloured port) of the router... and connect your computer to any one of the grey coloured(wired) ports of the router... then type 192.168.2.1 in internet explorer and configure your router according to the ISP...the connection type would be dynamic in most of the cases for cable modem/dsl modem....

switch off modem on belkin 54g


I'm guessing DSL to CABLE switch? Most will tell you no but it can be done. ISPs commonly use dual modem/router type devices in order to charge some sort of fee every month to the consumer.

Essentially what you're going to be doing is running a line from your wall to the modem. Now instead of running a line directly from the modem to the PC what you're going to be doing is I believe plugging it in to the 4th position on the back of the combo device. 1st you may have to reconfigure the device for your new ISPs information ie. DNS SUFFIX, IP ADDRESS, etc. Don't quote me on this but I believe to do that you'll have to connect the ethernet line directly from the PC to the combo device via port 1 on the device. That will enable you to configure the device as you would any other router. 

It's all a bit of a pain in the rear but it can be done. I've noticed forums around the net describing the process in further detail but without model specific information the best I can say is yes someone somewhere would know how to do it so don't let anyone especially your ISP say that it can't be done.

Best of luck!
