Re: Lost my network name and network key.
The best option in this case (assuming it has normal ethernet ports) is to connect a computer up by wire and configure the router from there.
Alternatively you can reset the router to factory defaults, via a button that should be near the power input on the unit, usually holding the button down for 10 seconds will reset it to factory defaults. From there you will be able to set the unit up as per normal, and should have no encryption key on the wireless.

If you can log into the router you should be able to simply reset the guest PSK to whatever you like. If you have a computer that can successfully connect to the guest network you can open an elevated command prompt on it and type netsh wlan export profile name="ProfileName" folder="C:\" key=clear Replace ProfileName with the SSID for the network.
To reset the Belkin back to the default settings - Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and then power for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button. Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password. You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
Check the main computer you set up the network router with...you may need to go to the network status and tasks in control panel...click on this...then you will see a map of all the network devices connected...find the belkin router and click on it...in this window there should be a tab called wireless properties..click this...the wireless properties first page should have the wireless SSID name listed here...and if you click the security tab then the security type and network key are displayed here..You need to write down the SSID, security type, and network key and make sdure the toshiba laptop setting for the wireless network are exactly the same. There may be a link on the first page of the wireless securities saying copy to usb drive..you can use this to copy all network settings to and then transfer these settings in to the toshiba by using the network setup wizard.
The wireless security of the Belkin must have been enabled. Use a computer wired to the router to access the setup page and get the network key. In the address bar of your browser, type192.168.2.1. By default, leave the password blank. Once on the setup page of the router, go to Wireless -> Security.You will see the network key here. On your laptop, view the available wireless networks and you should see your wireless network name or SSID, then when you click connect you have to enter the network key. I hope this helps!
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.
Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-
1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)
4> Change the wireless network key as well;it will be good if you use WEP key if you old XP computer,otherwise use WPA-TKIP if you vista/win7 computers
5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)
In case of any clarity feel free to contact belkin tech support
The default wireless network name/SSID is found underneath your router. It looks something like Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456. If you cannot see the SSID in the available networks on your wireless computer, then you might have changed it to a different name.
Use a computer that has connection to the router to access the setup page. Use a browser and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
Go to Wireless -> Channel and SSID. You can change the SSID to any name that you want. Then make sure that Broadcast SSID is checked. So that the computer will be able to detect the SSID.
For the network key, go to the Security tab. If WPA is set, copy the Pre-shared key. If you are using WEP, you will need to take note of the 10 digits (64bits) or 26 digits (128bits) wep key.
Goto any pc on your network and look for your gateway IP address. Once you have this you may type it into a browser. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password for this device. Once you get in you can click wirelss tab and goto security. There you should see all your wireless keys. If you can not access the unit please reset your router back to factory at what point you will then need to create a new key and associated that with all your wireless network devices.

You have to connect(wired) through one of the ports on the back of belkin to a laptop(or PC) physically.And this laptop(orPC) should have the software that came in the CD as part of the router packaging. Then you open the web browser and and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.This should let you access the router from where you can configure your settings..Network name,password,password for the router itself etc.
