The router is not supported by Win98, you will have to upgrade the OS to XP, check this by looking at the system requirements on the router packaging

kind regards

Tip

Setting up Wireless on router and wireless security


For setting up any router you can follow the below simple steps

  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and then type the username and password default usernames and passwords can be found in router manual.
  5. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  6. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  7. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  8. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  9. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  10. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it
All the best with your wireless router configuration and security setup

If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

I have a Tosiba Laptop that is wireless to my desktop but now I bought a new HP wirless Printer and it want my WEP key. Nothing on the router helps, tried all three numbers. What do I do?


The WEP key is the security key that you setup when you initially setup your router. w/o that key you won't be able to connect. if you can not remember the wep key; enter the setup of your router. u will see it there under the security setting tab.

Part # F5D8233-4 belkin wirless router need software cd


You don't need the cd. It has a connection wizard that helps set it up but you don't need to use that. You need to go to the belkin website and download the manual. That was also on the cd that's missing. Used to be a paper one in the box.

http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/f5d8233-4_v1_manual.pdf

That will tell you how to get setup. For the most part routers run as is right out of the box. You will want to setup the wifi so you will need a SSID name to call it and then turn on the security. WEP or WPA are the usual suspects. Pick a 5 or 10 alphanumeric key. Turn on the wifi. Then you may need to enable dhcp so your computers will get ip numbers from the the router. Most of that is enabled by default on most routers. Wifi usually isn't as it requires more information.
