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.

How do i secure my belikn from outsiders using it


Enable wireless security on your router, so that other people will not be able to connect to your network.

To enable wireless security, access the setup page of the router through a web browser. Type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the password blank.

Once in the setup page, go to Wireless. Take note of your SSID. Then go to Security.

Select WEP or WPA, depending on the operating system and capabilities of your wireless computer. If in doubt, you may use WEP since it is the legacy wireless standard.

You can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex WEP key manually, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase.

Make sure to take note of the WEP key because you will be needing this for your wireless computer.

Click Apply Changes.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks, select your SSID, then type the WEP key.

I hope this helps!

Forgot my security password (network key)I need to


Logon to your router from your computer using your browser and going to http://192.168.1.2/. If it wants a username, the default username is blank and the default password is either blank or "password".


The Belkin management tool will come up. From there, go into your security and look to see if your passphrase is visible. If it is, you're good to go. If not, you can change it on that page save it and close out.
Don't forget to change the passphrase on any wireless devices you are using connected to the Belkin wireless router.

How do I set up my wireless Belkin F5D7050, I no longer have the CD. My computer has Windows Vista?


1. Hard wire your pc to the router/modem using ethernet cord / cat 5 cable or use usb storage to download the driver to this link

http://web.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D7050&aid=5381&scid=0

2. Install the driver/software by executing the file.

then follow this:

SymptomNot able to go online only with the wireless connection.
ResolutionTo address the problem, use the following steps:
  1. On the Belkin Wireless monitor utility click on the tab AP List .
  2. Select the encrypted network that you wish to join. Click Connect.
  3. This will take you to the New Profile page . Enter a Profile Name .
  4. On the next page, you will see the network name, the network type and the transmit rate. Click Next.
  5. This will take you to the page that will ask you to select the Authentication Mode. This will be OFF by default. Select Open System or Shared Key depending on the network.
  6. Then select 64-bit or 128-bit encryption depending on the configuration on the Router/AP. Click Next.
  7. On the next page, select Input Method , which will be Hexadecimal (0-9,A-F) or Passphrase.
  8. Select the key index and enter the keys or the passphrase depending on the configuration on the router/AP. Click Complete.
CauseYou are not able to connect to a secured wireless network because the router/AP (what is this?) is encrypted.
SummaryWireless networks by their very nature are not secure because data is transmitted across open (i.e., air) media. This allows unintended “listeners” to receive the data. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is used in a wireless network to secure the signals and hence the data.

Mac laptops can't access an open (no security set) Belkin Router


A "locked" wireless means the router is encrypting packets of information as it sends/receives. You would need to enter the 64-bit or 128-bit key which was created by the router when you configured the passphrase to use.
