Re: unsecured net work
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit. Click Security under Wireless menu. Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bitWEP). Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c) Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key. Remember to set an admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password. /regards Teis Was this solution helpful?

To setup a wireless password/security for your Belkin router you need to use a wired computer to do the configuration settings.
1. Open a Web Browser (IE, Firefox etc.) on the wired computer. 2. In the address bar of the browser type http://192.168.2.1 and press Enter. 3. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit. (Enter your password if you have setup any. 4. Click on Security in the left hand column under Wireless. 5. Select WPA-PSK (no server) from the Security Mode section. 6. Enter your Pre-shared Key (this will be your wireless password). 7. 7. Click on Apply Changes.
check the wireless settings of the router . Make sure that you are typing the correct network key if your network is secured. May be you will need to open the ports on the router. Click Here for more information
The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

This is not a trivial task but to start, I presume that your Wireless Router is connected to an ADSL or CABLE modem:
1) Make sure that you can connect to the Internet/Web directly from the ADSL/CABLE modem.
2) Once you have step 1 validated, connect your Wireless router to the ADSL/CABLE modem.
3) Ensure that you can communicate to the Wireless router and use Netgear supplied software - I suggest that you connect your PC/LAPTOP used for configuration directly via an ETHERNET cable attached to your router:
'NETGEAR's Smart Wizard™ makes the set-up of the RangeMax™ wireless router easy and hassle-free. Smart Wizard automatically detects your ISP's network settings, then walks you through each step of the installation proces'4) When the installation is finish, try connecting to the internet via the ETHENET cable on your router. If it does not work, the FIREWALL on the ADSL/CABLE MODEM may be blocking the port and needs to be opened/disabled.5) You can now concentrate in getting the WIFI working by first using an 'unsecured/no encrytion' connection by setting an appropriate SSID.6) Once setp 5 is working, you SHOULD NOW SECURE your Wifi connection by using a selected encryption (such as WEP or better) and security key. ps. you will get this 'limited access' message if anywhere in the device chains the IP addresses cannot be resolved.
The person who has the router attached to there computer must enter the IP for the router and you will be able to reset the password to enter the router. If you need Help doing this I can solve this issue with you through my computer.
when you upgraded did any settings from your isp change like passwords or usenames that your router may not be registering at your isp's server, or the line speed that you are now getting is not suported by the router.
type 192.168.2.1 in your web browser and check the connection settings.
