    Computer recognizes the router but does not connect to internet. I am directly connected to a working cable modem via ethernet cable. I tried re-booting both modems with no luck.

My belkin f9k1002v1 router won't work.

A lot of things can keep it from working. Make sure there's lights and you have power, substitute ethernet cables, do a factory reset. Here's how I did the factory reset on my F9K1003V1.

This is how you reset your router.....

Reset the router to factory default 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.

How to setup new router:
  • 1 Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note of the user name and password.
  • 2 Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
  • 3 Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.
  • 4 Turn on in your modem and wait 10 seconds. Plug in your router and restart your computer.
  • 5 Select "Start," then "Control Panel" and then "Network Connections." Right-click "Local Area Connection" to bring up your network connection properties.
  • 6 Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)," then "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" and then "Obtain DNS Server Addresses Automatically."
  • 7 Open your web browser. If you are prompted for a user name and password, enter the information you recorded in Step 1.

    I reset my router back to factory default and now I am unable to get an internet connection :(

    Check your internet connection settings. If you are using a connection that requires a username and password to connect to the Internet (such as phone-line based DSL or Dialup), It will need to be set up again. If you forgot this account information, or don't have it handy- you will need to contact your ISP for further assistance.

    My belkin wireless router is locked. How do I unlock it?

    If you have forgotten the login password you can RESET the Belkin back to the factory defaults and configure it again.
    Power up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
    The default login password is blank.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

    Laptop wont connect to wireless belkin router

    If you connect the laptop wired, does it work correctly?
    If your Wireless router has password protection, try resetting it to factory defaults, and connect it that way.  If you can connect with the factory defaults (with no security), it's likely an issue with the security on your router.
    I'd suggest starting again. Reset to factory defaults, re-secure the network and try a different SSID name this time, and try again.

    Cannot connect my Mac Pro to the internet via my Belkin wireless

    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.

    This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).
