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
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.
Most router wont act as a DHCP client (Get an IP address) on their own.
You need to go into the Belkin setup and set it to an IP address in the range of your other router.
If your PC is getting (connected to the same network) an IP address of 192.168.0.3 IP and a Default Gateway address of 192.168.0.1 you can set the Belkin with any adderss between 192.168.0.10 & 192.168.0.254. Changing the last octet (set of numbers after the 3rd period) to the desired address.
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 ^_^
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.
If router is brand new you should have a set up disk. the set up disk will walk you through it or you might log onto Belkin site to see a walk through set up. If you can access internet from modem to router to internet. That means router is functioning properly. To go completely wireless you will need to secure your network and setup your access codes. Definitely use the setup disk to do this. A unsecured wireless network is a nightmare waiting to happen. Good luck
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.
You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order.
1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless)
2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router.
3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled.
4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings.
This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router.
