Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)
You might have to go to Control Panel and Internet Options and Connection and make sure 'Never Dial a Connection' is clicked, then apply and reboot.
If the router isn't passworded you'll connect to the internet.
Hope this helps

The WPA key/network key/passphrase will have been set when (if) you set up security on your router. (If you did not set up security, the connection will show as unsecured, and there is no WPA key/network key to enter.)
You can find the network key by logging in to your router user interface. Open a web browser and type the router address in the address bar, which is usually 192.168.2.1 for this router (note, there is no 'www').
This should bring up a popup box for you to enter your username and/or password. If no-one has changed them, I think the default password is blank, ie type nothing, just press return.
If you have a WPA key, you should find it under 'Security' on the 'Wireless' menu. It may also be called the passphrase, Pre-Shared key, PSK, or network key.
Please post again on Fixya if you have a problem with this, or if you don't have encryption and would like a hand with setting this up.

If you don't know the key for the router reset it to factory spec and then put in a new key. Go to the manufacturer web site and download a manual if you do not know how to reset.

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.
NOTE: If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.
NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.
Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.
It is also possible to make a wireless
connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If
you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.
