    Please post the make & model of your router. Generally you don't need a cd, but you may need to log into the router and allow your new computer to access it.

    go to the manufacturers website and got to drivers and software section and find the right model.

Below is a list of router brands and their respective IP addresses.

http://www.answersthatwork.com/Download_Area/ATW_Library/Networking/Network__4-List_of_default_Router_Admin_Passwords_and_IP_addresses.pdf

With Internet Explorer, just type in the number for your respective brand of router into the address bar and hit enter. If this matches your router, and you have unimpeded communication from your pc to your router, it will access the router login and setup page.
Now just add your account information to it, and set it up like new.

For example, I have a 2WIRE wireless modem for AT&T, and typing 192.168.1.254 in IE takes me to the setup page for my router.

If you access the router and have set up a router password that you forgot, you can hit the RESET button on it and start fresh. Also, I am sure your internet provider will gladly help if needed.

Good luck!

Is the wireless card "ENABLED" in your computer if it is I think you should connect a cable to the computer/router and log in to the router to see if something has changed in the setup for the wireless settings.

I have a Belkin G Wireless Router and all of a sudden the wireless internet has stopped working. i have restored default settings to the router. the internet for the computer is working through the router...


Probably you have to turn on the wirelss portion. Go to Belkin and download a manual for the exact steps.

You need to navigate your web browser to the router, log in and make changes. I have included the highlights that need to be set, below.

Wireless Router


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below.


Things to set:


Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes.


1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.


2. Set a recognizable system ID.


3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is not the security issue.


4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

I bought a Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8236-4 v2 and changed my internet provider a few months later and I have lost the Installation CD, can I install it without the CD?


Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.

Try running the cd that came with the router again, since you reinstalled windows, the configurations for the router have been lost. If this doesn't help let us know and we'll work on it from there.. good luck!

I have a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router that I lost the setup assistant cd to. How can I still hook it up and make it work?


You can still configure it even without the setup CD of the router, you just need to access the router setup page using its IP address, usinga computer wired to the router, But if you want you can call Belkin tech support so one of their tech can walk you through on how to manually configure the router 1-800-2235546..

Hope that helps........
