1. Click on Start Button
2. Goto Run
3. Type in cmd in the Run command box
4. Click OK
5. once black "DOS" box comes up type in ipconfig /all
6. Grab peice of paper and write down the Gateway IP address, should be 192.168.1.1 or something to that effect.
7. Open up Internet Explorer
8. In the address bar at the top type in the gateway ip address in this format (EXAMPLE) http://192.168.1.1 then hit enter
9. You should now be at your routers home page
10. Poke around and find the wireless security settings, you should have options like WEP/WPA/etc for encryption options.
11. The admin pw should be blank(nothing entered) or admin if it has never been set before.
12. If the routers admin pw has been set already and you don't know it, you can set the router back to factory default settings by grabbing a paper clip and pressing and holding the little tiny hole button on the back of the router.


Please rate this accurately and my instructions may not be EXACT, but use common sense.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.

  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed
