You should be able to see there is wireless networks available by the 5 bar slope on the right hand bottom side of the screen.
If so You can click on the icon and choose which router to access by the name, your should be Belkin.
Then put in the wireless password you set up.
If you have not set up the router you need to physically connect to it by plugging in a cable from the pc to the router LAN ports, you cannot set it up via the wireless network.
See the webpage here.
This model Belkin wireless router has 4 LAN ports so you can connect a LAN cable from this wireless router to your computer. I suggest you disable the wireless in the router so no one can access your network and Internet. If you cannot disable the wireless then you can setup WPA2 encryption to secure your wireless network or just remove the aerial off the wireless router.
You maybe able to reset the router to the factory default by powering up the router, press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router for 7 secs..
Then open a browser and type in the IP configuration address to reconfigure the router.
Temporarily plug in wire network cable into Dell and log into Dell.
1. Set wireless up the same as the Belkin. Save these settings.
2. Set WAN to "Static IP Address and give it an address about 25 higher than Belkin. (Belkin 184.108.40.206 - Del 192.168.0.26). Save these settings.
3. Disable DHCP and Save these settings.
Exit web browser and disconnect network cable. Restart your complete system, first the Belkin, then the Dell, then your computers.
This way, the Belkin is running and able to assign IP addresses to all that start after it.
If I understand correctly ... You have not connected the drive to a computer. If I am not mistaken the WD My Book has preinstalled backup software installed on it. It very well might also have a power down built as part of that programming. Try attaching it to a computer to verify this. Assuming the backup software needs blank drive to work correctly I would first access the drive select all and delete anything you find (if you know how to unhide hidden files do that before you select and delete all) ... As a 2nd option I would just reformat the drive. Hope that helps....
