How do I copy the security key?

Hi - I have a 7230-4 Belkin - one machine (running XP) is hardwired to the router. The other machine (Dell laptop running XP) is wireless. I have a new HP w/Vista that I'm trying to hookup but it wants the security key/passphrase. I don't remember what it was and I'm concerned about changing anything on the router because I don't want to effect the Dell that is working. So what I think I want to do is copy the 'security key/passphrase' from the Dell to the HP but 1. I don't know where that is kept on the Dell and 2 what would I have to do on the Vista machine. One last note on Vista it asks for the key and has link below if you have the key on a usb drive. Thanks in advance!!!

The solution to this one is you need to reconfigure the router. you need to disable the security settings for your router. (WEP or WPA) then try to put in a new SSID and new security key. that's the only way that you can get a new security/passphrase key for your network. for further assistance you need to contact the router manufacturer for router configuration.

i hope this helps.

    Hi! Just like what I've mentioned, you needa contact your router manufacturer on how to disable the security or how to change the passphrase key.

How do you link laptop up to wireless router if u dont have usb memory stick


usb memory stick is not necessary to setup a router (unless you are using some of these newer so-called easy one button security setup systems on some newer routers)

Just hardwire into the router login to the routers setup page...

http://192.168.1.1 (linksys some netgear most others)
http://192.168.2.1 (belkin, some others)
http://192.168.0.1 (dlink and a few others)
http://10.0.0.1 (netgear if it detects wan gateway on 192.168.1.x subnet)

when you log in to the router look at the wireless security settings and write down or copy the key thats the key you will use when windows asks you for a key in wireless setup...(o-yeah those aforementioned one button setups usually set an impossibly long cryptic key that you could possibly never be able to type in by hand correctly first few tries... you may want to change it and turn off WPS the reset the new key on all your other wireless devices...)

How do i secure my belikn from outsiders using it


Hi Friend,
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.

Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-

1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)
4> Change the wireless network key as well;it will be good if you use WEP key if you old XP computer,otherwise use WPA-TKIP if you vista/win7 computers
5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)

In case of any clarity feel free to contact belkin tech support

My netgear usb connects to my wireless belkin..but no internet ?


this message comes when your computer is not getting the IP address from the router.
There are possible reasons for that.
1. DHCP on the router may be disabled.
2. If your network is secured , then you might not be typing the correct network key.

In both the cases , you will need to check the settings of the router.
You will need to access the router set up.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Loosing connection every 10 to 20 min...


You did not mention which version your router is running (V3, V4, V5).

I would blame the connection loss on a flaw in the firmware. Go to the belkin site and see if there is a new firmware available for you: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9230-4&aid=8593&scid=222

Looking around I found some people had similar problems: http://cnet.nytimes.com/routers/belkin-wireless-g-plus/4505-3319_7-31489123.html

If this helped, then please leave a comment here, so others might find a solution as well.

Network key for router.


In onder to obtain this information you need a computer that has internet connection through the router, if you have a main computer that is wired through the router then use that computer if not try to hardwire the laptop to the router(plug it to any of the number ports that say ethernet/lan). Access the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.2.1(deafult IP address of the router) on the address bar of your browser(i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari), type admin for the username and leave the password blank. Go to the Wireless Settings/Configuration tab of the router and verify the security mode(WEP or WPA)
