There is no lock down on belkin router.
do you have router portected? if not, some one lock your router.
the best ting to do is reset it to factory default. and start all over again.
to that :
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will restore the router to factory default. Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to This should show the router status page with the default settings.

Please try the reset button on the back of the router in the following ways:

1. Hold the reset button in until the lights flash on the front of the router (about 30-40 seconds). Now unplug the router for a few seconds and then plug it back in. Wait for all the lights to finish blinking. Router should be reset. (see end to tell if it was).

2. Hold the reset button in for 30 secs, continue holding the reset button in while unplugging and plugging the router back in. Release the reset button and wait for the lights to finish flashing.

3. Unplug the router, then hold the reset button in while powering back up. Keep the button held in for a good 30 seconds.

If any of these resets work, you will have reset the router to factory defaults. Check your computers IP address. If it is (for example), then the routers IP address will be and the user name and password will now be back to the defaults.

Hope this is helpful

P.S. I will be 49 this year and need to look at my drivers license too...LOL

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

Can i remove sim restrictions on my w25 router to use other sims?

it's not illegal in Brazil, for example. actually, if you buy a locked cellphone from an operator, they are obligated by law to unlock it freely. obviously they take ages to do it.
