    This just a Cable/DSL router. You can only secure a wireless router. The only way someone can connect to your network through this router, is if they run a network cable directly to this router.

For about 10 or 15 times the price, we can sell you a router that does exactly what you ask and it will work for you and about 300 of your closest friends at the same time :-)

Even though your instructions say you and allow or DENY access to the router, nothing shows on the DENY part, except if you know the MAC address or IP in advance. A different router would do what you want, it would depend on how much you're willing to pay.

There is a software solution that requires a PC running the application (PublicIP at and there is a "burn-your-own" router mod to a Linksys router that lets you do this, or the above mentioned commercial applications from Valuepoint, Netopia and the like.

If you still want to do the "let me see what I can do" trial, log into your present router and go to filters. With the manual and help files, you can construct domain blocks that allow a specific site and deny all others. Your poor man's filter :-).

I guess you already have a manual, but here's a link if you need one. Your description is on page 29 for domain blocking issues.

ISP signal is not been detected by Belkin N 300 surf router. But same cable when connect to my laptop am able to browse internet.

I think wireless is not broadcasting or set to invisible. You need to go into the web-interface in the Belkin. typically you get here by HTTP:// but it shows in the small booklet
also the pass is in the booklet. If teh pass is lost reset the router as mentioned in the booklet

pls let me know if it worked or that you get at least in the web interface

Router Set-Up

I do not know how to find out the password if they are not the default for Netgear, however you can try to reset the router settings to defaults. Use a paper clip, and push in a small button between where you plug in the power and Ethernet cables(while the router is on). After this the user name and password should be back to default, which are user name: "admin", password: "password" without the quotes.

Linksys wireless B router 802.11

go to and click on support and download the full user manual for your router. then find the homepage of the router IE and the default user name and password and go to the homepage and type in the user/pass to get to the settings of the router.
if you do not know the user/pass it may be because you changed it when you first set it up. you can reset it (also listed on the linksys site how to do this) but you may loose you settings for connecting to the net or keeping you computers connected to each other so reseting should be the last option used.
once in the homepage of the router you will be able to make any changes to settings you need even locking yourself out of the router and the net if you dont know what you are doing. the cd is used to do the bare minimum and in order to get you connected you can do a lot more in the routers pages than listed on the cd setup.

just remember if you make to many chages at once without testing to see if they work for you. you wont know what change broke or fixed your problem
