If the password is the problem and sicen you wll be giving it to your daughter better reset the router first so it will be abck to its defauolt settings meaning its fresh again, Reset the router byt pressing the reset button for about 15 seconds while the router is power on and all the settings there will be gobe including the password so your daughter just needs to install it like a new router....

Hope that helps.........

Sure, to reset your router, in the back. There must be a small hole. You keep the power cord plug. You can use a pencil and press for 10 seconds.

I have a Belkin N wireless router. It's all set up but it shows as not being secured. How do I secure it? Model F5D8233-4v3

Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL.
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4 shuts down desktops with gigafast g wireless adapters

Make sure that the computers in error are set to DHCP for the TCP/IP properties. For the computers to see each other, the workgroup has to be the same on all of them. Each computer must have its own unique name.

For computers to be able to access each other, the computer's firewall has to be set to allow, or be turned off. The disk drives have to be set to share.

The router should have a NAT firewall. It should be turned on by default. As long as the NAT is turned on, it is safe to have the computer's firewall turned off and still be connected to the net.
