Hi,

To access your router configuration page, type the router’s IP address into a web browser.

I think this is 192.168.2.1 for the Belkin model. Note there is no ‘www’.

(If this does not work, and you’re using Windows, go to Start > (Run) and type cmd in the box. Click OK, to pull up a command line window. Type ipconfig into the window, and press return. In the output that appears, the Default Gateway shows the router address.)

You should then see a screen requesting a password. If you have not changed this, press return, because the default is blank (no password).

When you have logged in, go to 'Security' under the 'Wireless' menu. You should see your passkey there.

Hope this helps. Please come back to Fixya if it doesn’t work or you need further help.

If you want to download a manual, there are some on the UK site

Good luck...:)

Just hooked up the router to my pc and put in the install disc that came with it, the Belkin program won't open on my computer and the laptop I'm using shows it as an available wireless connection put...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Key, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

Thanks for using Fixya.

Belkin N 150 slow connection with MACs only & PCs are fine.


I had the same problem.
My solution was related to the fact that I had configured my router for OpenDNS.
Once I added those DNS servers to the DNS tab in System Preferences on my macbook Pro, the speed problem disappeared.
Hope this helps you, as well.

Mac laptops can't access an open (no security set) Belkin Router


A "locked" wireless means the router is encrypting packets of information as it sends/receives. You would need to enter the 64-bit or 128-bit key which was created by the router when you configured the passphrase to use.

LOST THE CD FOR MY WIRELESS ROUTER


Belkin dosent seem to have your model (anymore??)
But here is the link to contact them:

Bye the way, I WOULD NOT install the wireless software on a wireless pc, as configuring a Router with a wireless conection is bound to create problems, - take it from someone who KNOWS.

Belkin router


I'm guessing that your laptops are using a wireless connection. If this is the case the first time you enter the wireless security key (password) it will be stored in the laptop so you don't need to enter it again.

To connect to the router, you need to open its associated web page which you will normally find by typing the routers IP address into the address bar in Internet Explorer. The usual default address for a Belkin router is 192.168.2.1.

Once you connect to the router you should be able to access all the security settings from the Belkins main menu.

Main PC can't connect but others can!


I had this model of router quite some time ago. I had some bad experiences where when I tried to login to it I was unable to, the web based management interface would not respond (as you have described) . Resetting the device would resolve this I would recommend trying that. Unplug it, wait a few minuets and plug it back in. Then try again to access the management interface. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or whatever via a web browser.
