Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

For netgear modems, first connect it with lan and then open ur browser and type ip : 192.168.0.1Admin:- adminpass:- password mostly its written on the back panel of router.then change settings acc. to ur needs.And always operate wifi on secured basis WPA2 is best and some netgear n150 models also have..Wireless Station Access

By default, any wireless PC that is configured with the correct SSID will be allowed access to your wireless network. For increased security, you can restrict access to the wireless network to only allow specific PCs based on their MAC addresses.

I use this setting because first even if someone knows my ssid and wireless WPA 2 -password he still cannot connect because only the listed mac users can be connected.

Belkin Router Connection Issue


well.. if you have a laptop, or a pc, you better have in those a wifi modem built in your computer.. most of the laptops now have those things already integrated, and PCs.. well, youll have to buy a PCI card to suit you better... if you dont, youll need to buy a wifi modem...

then, if you used to have your internet connection through wire to your computer, youll have to unplug that and plug it into your belkin router...

then, if you have the wifi modem in your computer, there will be an icon in the task bar (where the clock is) where you can see all wireless conections..
find yours and you are done..
if you need more help, dont hesitate to ask.. ill be alert..
happy new year..

WIFI


Then it would not be WIFI. It would be just a network connection to the internet. This is the most simple connection and should work. GL

My friend has subscribed a wifi on there house and i want to connect my desktop computer to thier wifi hotspot but i dont know what to do. I dont know the settings on how to connect and what to do. So...


You need to ask your friend for permission to connect to his wireless router and Internet and if he agrees he will give you his router's wireless setting so you can connect to his wireless router.
He may ask you to contribute to some of his Internet charges.

Do i have to have a router to connect to belkin wifi on my ipod touch?


Yes you need wireless router to use wifi in ipod touch or on laptop.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method.
Then click on wireless and enable it.
. Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Ipod touch will not connect to belkin wireless router.


If your Ipod touch will not 'find' your Belkin N router - or it did and then vanished forever try this- it worked for me.
1.Turn wifi off on your computer, ensure you have the latest firmware on your router,reset the router to factory default.Do this using a wired connection from the admin page.
2. Change the SSID name from what it was previously say from Belkin xyz to my router.
3. Power down the router wait about 30 seconds then power it back up.
4. As you reset to factory setting you will need to put in your internet access info again - do this from the admin page. Also set up your security at the same time.
5. Restart the router from the admin page.
6. Unplug wired connection start wifi and connect to your computer -make sure that you have full internet access from you computer - dont forget you need to connect to the newly renamed router.
7. Take ipod and make sure wifi is off.
8. Clear network settings.
9.Turn wifi on and it should find your newly renaned router - join and enter your pass key.

Why it does it I have no idea neither do Belkin or Apple but it worked for me - a trial and error solution !

Good luck

I have a Netgear router -but I dont have the same computer that I used to set up Internet connection. My router works but is not secure


the computer you have should make no difference to how the router works.
If your wifi connection is insecure you will need to login to it and add the security under the advanced/wireless (wifi) options and add a password.
if you connect to the router with a cable then just turn off (disable) the wifi, you don't need to set up the security.

Wifi


WiFi is not based on your computer, it is based on what you have connected to your internet modem. If you want WiFi then you will need a router that provides WiFi transmission. These routers also have standard ports to connect your equipment that doesn't support WiFi. Most Laptop computers sold now a days have wireless modems intergrated so if you upgrade your router you dont have to worry about having to buy a bunch of other things.
