I have a belkin wireless router connected to a billion modem/router. I would like to add a password to the wireless setup but cannot access it by entering the ip address 192.168.2.1. When I use the cmd ipconfig the default gateway ip adress comes up 220.127.116.11. which is for the Billion. Any ideas would be appreciated - normef
Try geting a routher that featres wirless and eathernet so you do not have to have two boxes. You will have to know its ip adress enter it internet explore and then you will be able to protect it through there.

You should reset your router to clear all information from it. The best procedure to fully clear your device would be to press the reset button with power on for 30 seconds; while continuing to press the reset button, remove power from the unit; and while continuing to press the reset button restore power for 30 seconds.
You should now be able to access the menus after the unit boots up with the default user name/password for the unit. If you do not know them, just Google [your router name] default user name and password. You can now set up the router to meet your requirements. There is a lot of information that will help you on the Internet, but having a clean booted router is important to start with.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on wireless settings->wep security add password then save settings and restart router then you can connect wireless with that password.

You can lock your router by setting a password to access it. This is done in your router setup, in the Wireless area. I prefer WPA-PSK [TKIP] for the ease of setup and password selections. This should keep unwanted access to your wireless signal.
If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.
From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.
connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with following link. for belkin routers http://192.168.15.1 for other routers http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then
you can see configuration page of router.Click on wireless and If you
want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is
your password key for connect wi fi. Let me know if you need further assistance.
This is more of an explanation then a solution, but to best explain what to do I have to first explain why this is happening. When you add security to a wireless router or ap you add extra envelopes to the packets of info being transferred, adding encryption to that makes it much slower because the ap has to encode all packets coming to you and un-encode all packets being sent to the Internet. In our time this happens very quickly, but in computer time I just described a lifetime. In addition if your signal is not 100% you might have packet loss "more slow down". Now the answer, in your ap setup pages you can setup wireless security, set this to Mac address authenication and add the mac addresses of all the network cards that have access to this ap. This is by far the fastest methiod of secure data transfer.
hey what you can do is you can reset the entire router... by using the reset button on your belkin router... Or else you can also access the router by using the following IP address in the internet exlorer...
try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 & then go to the wep settings & reset the router or change the password for the router...
