This is how you reset your router.....

Reset the router to factory default With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will restore the router to factory default. Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This should show the router status page with the default settings.

How to setup new router:
  • 1 Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note of the user name and password.
  • 2 Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
  • 3 Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.
  • 4 Turn on in your modem and wait 10 seconds. Plug in your router and restart your computer.
  • 5 Select "Start," then "Control Panel" and then "Network Connections." Right-click "Local Area Connection" to bring up your network connection properties.
  • 6 Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)," then "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" and then "Obtain DNS Server Addresses Automatically."
  • 7 Open your web browser. If you are prompted for a user name and password, enter the information you recorded in Step 1.

    Is there any case that the port from belkin router


    This may happen due to double NAT issue.... the DSL modem might give an IP address in the range of belkin route....that is 192.168.2.X check for the ip address when the computer is directly connected to the DSL modem... now check for the IP adress when the Belkin alone is connected to the computer.... if they both give an IP adress like this 192.168.2.X......(X can be any value) then you will face the above issue..... in that case you can login to router and change the IP address of belkin router from 192.168.2.X to 192.168.15.X this will resolve the issue
