Hi,

Doing this is a little bit complicated if you do not know how to manage a wireless router. I strongly suggest that you contact your Internet provider if they are the one who installed it for you or you can contact the manufacturer for live technical support.

Anyways here's the step on how to access your wireless router. Normally wireless device has security features. You can setup security features such as client restrictions, MAC address
filtering, WEP, and WPA. For home use, you can use the WEP feature.

You can set up the Router’s advanced functions easily through your web browser, without having to install additional software onto the computer. There are no disks to install or keep track of and, best of all, you can make changes and perform setup functions from any computer on the network quickly and easily.

You can download this manual first for instructions. Read andunderstand before you configure. Check if you have the same model. Butmost likely, it's the same GUI base.

Go to page 53

http://belkin.httpsvc.vitalstreamcdn.com/belkin_vitalstream_com/support/dl/p74559-b_f5d7230-4v7_man.pdf

Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (you do not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then press the “Enter” key.

Note: To configure a wireless, I suggest that you need to use a cable that came with your wireless router so that you won't get disconnected after you have configure it.

WARNING: If you are configuring the Wireless G Router or access point from a computer with a wireless client, you will need to ensure that security is turned ON for this wireless client. If this is not done, your client will lose its wireless connection.

Next window will require a password. Before you can change any setting, you need to log in with a password. I you have not yet set a custom password, then leave this field blank and click submit.

Click on security on the left hand side under the wireless option.
Check manual for instructions under page 53.

SOURCE: How do I secure my

you would need to access the router via a browser. the address for accessing is normal on the underside of the unit. you will need to use the standard user and password name (normally admin admin) or written in the manual/underside. then open the wireless security. select WPA and write a password of suitable length thats easily rememberable. apply the option.

on your pc now open the wireless access point list. (using xp here) on the left there is a setting with a spanner and red. click that. it will list previously accessed wireless networks (might be on a different tab but you have opened the right box). the best way is to delete the access point that is yours then reconnect, or you can change the settings, clicking WPA and typing in the pass. i prefer to delete as it asks for the password twice, making sure its right in both cases. (the passwords are normally long so its easy to catch the wrong key when typing it in, using the other way i get annoyed if i've mistyped cos i have to open it all up again!!)

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

http://www.behardware.com/articles/614-2/wi-fi-mimo.html

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Maybe this will help?

If I understand this correctly, Your work's IT people setup your router and you need the Security Password to access?

You should ask your work's IT people for the password.
If you are asking how to break that security key, I'm am not sure you will find that info here.

My gateway lapton found a wireless connection to connect to, but once it is connected is not connecting to the internet


You can connect to a wireless router that isn't password secure, but if the router isn't configured to hand out ip addresses you can't get internet access. You need to know what address the router is on, and statically assign your laptop an address and gateway pointing to that router.

It's best to make friends with the neighbour and get the address.

Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

When using the Belkin G router the network connection becomes lost and can not get on the internet. My computer has Vista on it and Belkin says that the router is compatible with the program.


This is possibly caused by your firewall or the wireless security (wpa/wep) on the router if you have set it up.
First of all, if you can connect to the internet via a cabled connection the problem is going to be with the way you've set the router up.
If you've setup wireless security on the router, have you also set it up for your wireless adaptor?.
I suggest you try to connect to the internet via cable to start with, if this works try to connect wirelessly with your firewall off.
If all else fails start from the beginning again.
