Router setup
If you are using the cd that comes with the router, that is the problem. You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:


Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How to Configure Belkin routers without installation CD for Centurylink, Embarq, Bell sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs ?
Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Centurylink, Embarq, Bell sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs :
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Do not connect the modem to the router.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router i.e., 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.
f7dd033.jpg
Wired Part Configuration:
We need to configure the wired part by following these steps.
Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)
Step 2: Click on LAN settings (found on left side of RSP), change the IP address from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.40.1 and save changes.
Step 3: Now Connect the DSL Modem to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using another Ethernet cable.
***Once you are done that, you need to re-login to RSP by typing the new IP address 192.168.40.1 in the address bar of web browser.

Step 4: Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner of RSP. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
Step 5: If the Internet Status is not connected then, click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next. It will ask for HOST NAME, leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.
Step 6: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner of belkin RSP. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.
If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.

Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.
Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.

If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected. You will not be able to go online in the wired computers.

In this case you need to connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online. If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

The above method is applicable only for Embarq, century link, Bell Sympatico, Bell Canada ISPs. Because these ISPs will have the IP address same as Belkin routers....

If nothing works then you need to contact your ISP and ask them to bridge the modem...Bridging the modem disables NAT in the modem and allows you to get a public IP in the modem.

Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP: ·


Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP :
  • Connect the cable Modem/ Ethernet cable from ISP to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.

Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.

Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 4: Click on MAC ADDRESS or MAC CLONE (found right below the connection type on left side of RSP).

Step 5: click on the button CLONE (once you click on clone the MAC address will get changed) and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 6: Before doing MAC clone one important thing has to be noticed. Check whether you are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the cable modem. Because Cable ISPs uses a particular kind of authentication called MAC authentication. Hence, only the particular computers whose MAC addresses are registered in their database will be able to go online directly from the modem.
***MAC clone is a feature that copies the MAC address of your computer and pastes it in the router. So the router will have the MAC address of your computer and it will get connected to the internet.

Step 7: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.

  • If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected.In this case you need to repeat the above Network power cycle by unplugging the cable that is going into the cable modem from the wall outlet.
  • Still if the internet status is not connected, then connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online.
  • If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.

Pvs connection


I had AT&T internet service with the 2-Wire wireless router (combined modem and router). You probably might have been given an installation CD but that often does not work well. You should be able to interface directly with the modem or router with your web browser possibly (http://gateway.2wire.net), and see the status of the connection, although to talk to these devices you must put in a username (usually "admin") and a password to enter the interface.

Your best bet is to actually call the technical support for the Internet service. Look on the AT&T paperwork you go with the modem or modem+router or any billing statement that show the possibly 877 number for HighSpeed Internet technical support. They will walk you through step-by-step until you get your connection; listen carefully to the often heavily accented voice. It usually never fails.

Wired and wireless computers


First get your router works with the internet on the wired connection before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem.

Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless.

Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network.

So this can be a three step process.

If you internet service is provided by a cable(tv) there is a reasonable chance your router will work out of the box no configuration changes. However, if your internet service is supplied on the phone line chances your router will work as it comes out of the box are much less. Who is your Internet Service Provider and if possible can you supply a link to their help/support website so I can see if they supply configuration instructions?
