Wireless Network Reset - Belkin

If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your Belkin wireless access point/router, the easiest and fastest way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.



Reset your router:

  • Unplug your DSL/Cable modem from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now


Next
  • On the rear of your Belkin router you will find a small RESET button
  • With the power still on the router, Press and hold (with a pin/pen tip) the RESET button for 10 seconds.
  • Release the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot


almost done....
  • Unplug your Belkin router from power
  • Plug your DSL/Cable modem back in to power
  • Wait 1 minute for the modem to boot up
  • Be sure the ethernet (cat5) cable from your modem is securely plugged into the WAN port on the back of your Linksys router. This is usually labeled WAN or Internet above the jack
  • Plug your Belkin router back into power.


You will now be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device. I would advise that you follow the next steps in securing your wireless network.

how do i conect another laptop to wireless


You need to know the password for your wireless signal. If you do know it, use the second laptop to search for your wireless name. Click on your wireless signal, and click join or connect. When prompted, type in your wireless password. If you don't know your wireless password, you are going to have to reset your router. Instructions on how to do that are here:http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/48/~/performing-a-hardware-reset-on-the-router.
Then you will have to connect a ethernet cable between the router and a laptop to access the router's menu to create a new wireless name and password. Open your web browser (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) and go to the address Http://192.168.1.1 The password should be blank.

If the reset did not help ,i would suggest you talk to the Belkin Support team and get a replacement. Since its a new router, I assume it has an up to date firmware .

Unable to get connected to Belkin f5d6130 AP


Hi,

You need to be connected using  wired Ethernet (PC's LAN card to Router's Ethernet Port (at the back)).  This is the preferable INITIAL way to configure the router before going wireless. Also it would be to your advantage to initially set your PC (that will be used for configuring the router)  to "Specify an IP address" (static settings) and not "Obtain an IP address automatically."

For a PC connected via UTP networking cable attached to a Belkin F5D6130 AP, the networking settings could be:
IP Address 192.168.2.2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 19*2.168.2.1
DNS Server 192.168.2.1
Reboot

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
