Hi,
Type www.routerlogin.com into your internet address bar. enter your username and password for the router. if you don't know, try admin and password. You can change that to whatever you like, in the router's settings menu. Now go to Security, under Wireless, and change the drop down menu to WEP or WPA or whatever you like. WPA is stronger encryption. Apply.
Choose password, write it down somewhere safe, and exit.
Done!

I reset my Belkin Wireless Pre-N Router F5D8230 to the factory setting. Now I would like to put a password in to keep the wireless secure in my home. How do I do it?


With a Belkin wireless router you can connect computers to the same Internet connection without having to run cables between all of them. If you don't want any stranger with a laptop that is within the range of your wireless router to be able to access your network you will first need to enable the router's security settings.

1.Power on any of the computers that are currently connected to a network through your Belkin wireless router. Click on the "Start" button and then open the Control Panel.

2. Scroll down through the Control Panel options and double-click the "Devices" icon. Right-click on the entry for your Belkin wireless router and click on "Update Driver." Wait for the latest software driver to finish downloading and then close the Devices window.

3. Open your web browser by clicking on its corresponding desktop icon. Click on the address bar at the top of the web browser's window and type in the string of numbers and dots "192.168.2.1" Press the Enter key to bring up the router's access page. Click on the "Login" button.

4. Leave the password text box blank and then click on the "Submit" button to access the settings menu. Click on the tab at the top of the screen labeled as "Wireless."

5. Find the "Security" link at the center of the page and click on it. Click on the "Security Mode" drop-down menu box and then change the security mode to whichever setting you want. Choose the "128 bit WEP" option from the drop-down menu if you want to enable security encryption on your wireless network.

6. Click on the "Generate" button at the bottom of the screen to generate the encryption key and then type in a password you want to use in the "Passphrase" text box. Leave the box empty if you want anyone within range to be able to access your wireless router. Click on the "Apply Changes" button to save the changes.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I have this belkin and I want only myself to use this router, how do I blocked it from others?


Hi there.
I'm sure you want to secure your wireless network so only you can access it. There are many ways in doing this But first you have to change the router's default password to this You can enable the wireless encryption so you will be prompted to type a network password before connecting to your network. Lastly you can enable MAC filtering.
To enable wireless security click the link below: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D8231-4&aid=10177&scid=0 To enable the MAC filtering click this link below: http://www.corenetworkz.com/2009/07/enable-mac-address-filtering-in-belkin.html

Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-

Setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I


You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

I have a belkin G router that my computer will not recognize for some reason. It recognizes every other network in the neighborhood except mine. There is no security or password set, and my wifes computer...


Check whether the SSID broadcast is enabled on the router.
If it is already enabled then try changing the wireless channel on the router.
for this you will need to open the set up page of the router.

How do I security enable my Belkin router?


Hi there,
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable.
Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.

Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c)
Apply the settings.
Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Remember to set an admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password.
/regards

How to make it a secure network


Malicious users can easily capture information transmitted over an open wireless network. To prevent unauthorized access to your personal information it needs to be encrypted.

To secure your wireless network some kind of encryption must be enabled on that network, whether it is WEP, WPA-PSK (or MAC Access Control List). The most used method (and easiest to configure) is WEP.

Configuring WEP:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
  5. Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
  6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
  7. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Any other questions, let me know.

Cheers,
Nick
