Question about Belkin Wireless Pre-N (F5D8230-4) Router (F5D82304)
Do i just hit the button in the back of my belkin n router to set the security, if so, then what next?
Hi...if your router has WPS capability, such as a special button to set up wireless security, then to use it your client computer/device must also be WPS enabled.
If it is, there are usually two options to configure WPS security: the push button method, or the PIN number. The push button method usually requires that you press the WPS button on the router, then within a set time, press the equivalent button on the computer (eg laptop, or whatever device it is). The PIN number method requires a PIN to be entered into the client computer. The PIN can sometimes be found on a sticker on the router.
Your manual should help with the details, but see this page for some more info.
If you don't have a WPS enabled computer or don't want to use it, you can set up security manually. Please come back to Fixya if you'd like help with this.
