Question about Belkin PC Desktops

I have a Belkin N F5D8233 router that I am giving to my daughter because is slows my main computer down so much. The only problem, my son-in-law installed it in Feb. 2008, and We don't remember the pass word. Is there a way to cancel that password and let my daughter add hers?

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.

The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

When i first connect my daughters computer with an belkin wireless router than i stop working than i purchase an d-link not thinking it would make a different but it didn't and still not working do i ahve...


No you can't use two routers (without being an expert to set them up correctly!). Make sure the Belkin isn't plugged in while you're setting up the D-Link. To diagnose the culprit, try these steps:

1) Plug your daughter's computer directly into the ethernet port of the DSL or Cable Modem. You'll need to do this to rule out your Daughter's PC as the problem. If it works fine, then move to step 2. If her computer still isn't working, and another computer connected the same way DOES work - then you need to work on your daughter's computer, becasue that's where the problem lies.

2) Ok since you confirmed your daughter's PC is just fine - and also the DSL or Cable connection is working as well - this indicates most likely the router(s) are at fault. So let's work with the D-Link, since we're not sure if the Belkin is working. Like I said, be sure the Belkin is completely unplugged and powered OFF. Now plug the D-Link into your DSL or Cable modem ethernet port. Turn on the D-Link, make sure the correct indicators are lit on both the DSL/Cable modem and the router. Reboot your daughter's PC and right-click on the wireless networking icon on her taskbar. Choose view available wireless networks - if you see your D-link listed, then the router is working! If you still can't connect - try disabling WEP/WAP and try again. Most likely it's just a security setting that's off.

Good Luck!
