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.

Where is the network security key


The network security key is set by the user when the home network is setup. It prevents people from stealing your wireless signal. If you have forgot it, or didn't set it up but it still is asking for one, you can unplug and hit the reset button on your router and delete the home network you have on your main computer. From there, just run the network setup wizard from the main pc and set your network security key to something you can remember as well as write it down. Then you should be set to add any other pc to your home network as long as when you try to connect, you put the correct key in.

I forgot the password belkin router. how I can recover. thanks


Setup steps:

  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
    See images below:

  1. Leave the router powered on.
  2. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  3. Remove the paperclip.
  4. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.

The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default.

I don't know where to locate the network key for my belkin g wirerless router so I can connect to the internet


connect any one of the computers to the router with a ethernet cable. open internet explorer, clear out the address bar on the top, and type 192.168.2.1. when u hit enter, u'll get a router set up utility. in this page u'll have an option -security- below "wireless". when u click security, it'll ask for a password, leave it blank and hit submit. on the next window, u will find the password there.

WHERE IS THE RESET BUTTON ON MY WIRELESS BELKIN KEYBOARD ANTONE??


had the same problem and tried pressing down the connection button on the keyboard at the same time as the connect button on the receiver. If you press down on both intermittently then they should pick up each other.
It seems there isnt a reset button like there is on the mouse, which is what i was looking for on the keyboard - i presume they mean the connection button / LED light but you have to press the receiver button at the same time.
good luck!

Lost password into router need reset


Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

I forgot my login Password for my belkin router,im trying to add Nintendo wII to it


You may have to reset the password which will reset to the router to Default Settings. Do this by using a paper clip to push in the little button in the hole, in the back of the router. You will need to re-adjust your settings if you had Encryption or anything and I would suggest settings a secure password. If you do not like this solution you must guess the password.

We do not know our password for the f5d7230 wireless router and cant connect our ps3 to it. Im trying to find a WEP code to input on the ps3. Belkins online manual suggests i need to reset the router to...


Hiya, when you go to your router homepage, normally an address like 192.168.2.1 for most belkins, there will be a security tab, if you look at the wep settings it should give you what the wep key is, if not you can generate a new one and put it into your pc's and ps3,
Your password however if not changed from original will be blank just hit the submit button,
Also there should be a reset button in the casing of the router, this will reset it to factory where password will be blank so hit the submit button, hope this helps
