The router has to be manually configured in the gui page within it to allow remote wireless access point. This is not done by default as a security feture on routers. The way to find out the ip address of the router to set up a wireless access point or remote configuration is to go on your machine that has active working internet and click start, all programs, accessories, right click comand prompt, select run as administrator, confirm, then once in comand prompt admin, typ in ipconfig /all, then look for default gateway in the first list shown this is the ip of your router. Hope this helps.
You can Convert the Router as an Access Point But your Wireless Modem Should Be Hard wired to router. But if your Router has an wireless Bridge Option in it you can Convert it as an Range Extender. Check For the Wireless Bridging Feature on your Router or Please Post your Router's Model Number Here. I Will Be Glad to Help you out... :)
what type of internet do you have? does your internet require a username and password to connect ? Im not familiar with verizon but I believe you will have to input the information such as username and password for the PPPOE conenction on the router to be able to access the internet from the modem and be able to send the signal as a wireless internet from your router, try getting in your belkins GUI graphical user interface to be able to change the settings for the PPPOE connection from the modem to work and give access to the router on this case ^_^
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 Or http://192.168.0.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. If you are still not able to see use name and password screen then RESET it Press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router Then try with above ip. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Are you trying to install the router. You can do it manually without the CD. MAke sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem. If your computer is able to go online through the modem Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router. open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP. Click Here for step by step by instructions
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.
I've not used one of these 2wire boxes before, but I believe the default router's address is 192.168.0.1. Try this instead of gateway.2wire.net to see if you can gain access to the router. This is just the starting point, but see if it works.
Here's a link to, what I believe is, the router's manual.
