    Hi....can I ask if you have MAC address filtering enabled on your router? This is under 'Firewall' on this model. If so, try disabling it, and see if you can connect then.

    Just a suggestion to start you off - quite a few people have posted with similar issues in the last few days.

Hi i have installed my router over a year ago now but am wondering how i set up security as others in my area can pick up my network easily without any passwords and it is slowing my computer down thanks.


In general, you can follow the basic steps below.

I would recomend using WPA2 or WPA secutity over WEP. (as this is a stronger type of wireless security)

- Open a web browser on the computer.
- In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 (default router ip address, you may have changed this)
- Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit. (if you have already set up a password to login to the router then enter it here)
- Click on Security in the left-hand column under the Wireless heading.
- Use the drop-down menu and select "WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)".
- Select either WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, or WPA-PSK+WPA-PSK2 as your Authentication; doing this will set the Encryption Technique automatically.
- Enter a word or group of characters in the password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length. Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case-sensitive ("A" is different than "a").
*NOTE* Unchecking the Obscure PSK box will allow you to see the security key that has been typed.
= Click the "Apply Changes" button to save the settings.

Any/all wireless computers that connect to this network will be required to have this Pre-Shared Key (password).

If you need assistance with how to re-configure your computers, then please provide the version of windows that you are using.

Basic steps are:

-Disable the current Wireless Connection
-Enable the Wireless Connection
-Search for available wireless networks (look for your SSID wireless network name)
-you will be prompted to enter in your PSK and then save your settings

Tip

Wireless Part Configuration of Belkin routers without CD


Wireless Part Configuration:
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.
Step 1: Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
In the Belkin router Setup page, on your left hand side, you may have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) below WIRELESS. If you have WPS then click on it. If it prompts you for a login password, leave it blank and Click on Submit.WPS will be Enabled by default. Change it to Disabled and Click on Apply Changes. It may or may not take some time to save the Information and brings you back to the same page.

Step 2: Security
Select Security found on left side of router setup page.Security mode will have the following options,
  • WPA / WPA2 (PSK)
  • 64-bit WEP
  • 128-bit WEP
  • Disabled
Usage of above security modes for various devices:
  • WPA / WPA2 (PSK) ------for vista & windows7 computers
  • 64-bit WEP -------for windows XP, MAC, XBOX, Play Stations, Ipods, Ipads (recommended)
  • 128-bit WEP ------same as 64bitwep, but not recommended
  • Disabled------to disable the wireless security
Disabled: If you think there is no need for security for your Wireless network or if you are willing to make it as a hot-spot then you can select the option as Disabled and Click on Apply Changes.

WPA/WPA2: If you are selecting the Security type as WPA/WPA2 then you will be able to see the pre-shared key (PSK) or passphrase (PSK), in this box you need to type at-least 8 characters as the network password.After typing the password you can verify the password by un-checking obscure PSK. Password is case sensitive. Once you are done check obscure PSK and Click on Apply Changes.

64bitWEP: If you are selecting the Security type as 64bitWEP then you will be able to see the Key 1 with 5 empty boxes. You need to type 2 numbers in each boxes of Key 1. You can also use letters A-F along with numbers 0-9 to make your password more secure. Password is case sensitive. After filling those details click on Apply Changes directly. You must not type anything in Passphrase and click on generate. If you do so, it will generate a password automatically.The 10digit value which you entered in key 1 is the password for your wireless network.You need to enter the same password without any spaces in between in your computer to get connected to your wireless network.

128bitWEP: If you are selecting 128bit WEP, then you need to follow the same instructions as above but you need to enter 26characters in 13 empty boxes.

Step 3: Channel and SSID:
  • Once you are done with that, select Channel and SSID found on the left side of RSP.
  • Change the Wireless Channel to 1 or 6 or 11 (these are the best non- overlapping channels for wireless networks).
  • Change the SSID to any name as you wish, this will be your wireless network name (I recommend you to use a single word of any length. It can have letters, numbers or combination of both).
  • Check whether the option Broadcast SSID is checked / enabled (it must be enabled).
  • Once you are done click on Apply Changes.
Now the Router is configured for wireless devices.

Connecting your wireless computer to the wireless network:Make sure the wireless switch is turn on in the laptop, now look for the available wireless Networks in range, select your network name, enter the security key and get connected.

How can I have the my belkin whit the security-enable network?


If you mean to enable the wireless encryption, you will need to do this via the web configuration page.

Firstly, I would advise configuring this all from a wired connection, in case you need to make changes, or revert to an unsecured network... nothing worse than making these changes and THEN finding out you don't have a network cable handy to change it back when it doesn't work for some reason! :D

I am not sure what model Belkin you have, but as a generalisation, you need to enter http://192.168.2.1 in your brower. If you have not changed the password for the router, just click login.

On the left hand side will be a menu, you will need to click on Security on the wireless tab. You then need to decide what method of security you want... WPA2 is the best, but you need to make sure that all your wireless equipment supports it, the next best is WPA, and try and avoid using WEP, as this is very insecure.

You will need to select either WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK, then in the authentication box select WPA-PSK WPA2-PSK, in the following box select TKIP AES.

You then need to decide what to use as your wireless 'key' this needs to be nice and long and preferably not a word in the dictioinary, and it is an idea to contain numbers, lower and upper case, and if possible a special character (!,

Use WPA/WPA2-Personal(PSK) as your security mode, then WPA-PSK for the Authentication and TKIP for Encryption Technique. You should be able to use your Ipod or any handheld devices to your router.

Unable to connect to my secure wireless router


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.

Log in to the router, check Wireless settings, Security is in the same area. I find that WPA-PSK[TKIP] is the easiest type to use, as you can use pretty much any sort of password longer than 7 characters. This can be done with the wired connection.

How to make a secure connection.So far i have an open connection. My router is Belkin_G_Plus Mimo


Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
8. Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your Router is equipped with the latest security standard called Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2). It also supports the legacy security standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). By default, wireless security is disabled. To enable security, you will need to determine which standard you want to use.
To access the security settings, click Security.
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the WPA-based 802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless security by combining advanced network authentication and stronger Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption methods.
2. You can configure wireless security/encrytion settings here. Select WPA-PSK (no server) from Security Mode drop-down menu. The new page will display on next screen
3.Setting WPA Security
Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. At the time this User Manual was published, a security patch from Microsoft is available for free download. This patch works only with Windows XP.
Your Router supports WPA-PSK (no server). WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters. Each client uses the same key to access the network. Typically this is the mode that will be used in a home environment.
Setting WPA-PSK
1. From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
2. For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
3. Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.

HELP!!!!!! Trying to enable wpa-psk security on my laptop?


You should set the security on your computer wifi card to wpa-psk and then type in the securitycode which is written in your Zyxel Router.
If this is not possible with your networkcard, change to wpa or wpa2 inside the Zyxel. And do the same procedure with your networkcard, when detected the Router.
