You will have to log in to the setting of the router. This is accomplished by typing the ip adress of the router usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into a web browser. It will then ask for a user name and password: the default user name and password for belkin routers is: User name: Admin Password: (Leave the Field blank). Then you can enable UPnP in there. UPnP stands for universal plug and play :) Hope this helps. Thanks
The only time you don't need a user name and password to connect to your broadband/adsl company is if they supply your phone/internet/tv by cable rather than by the telephone line. If this is the case, you would have a modem supplied by the company and you would simply plug your pc/router into this.
If your internet comes down your phone line, you would normally need a user name and password. Only they can tell you what it is.
you need the username and password from provider,then
Connecting to the Internet
Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
Power down your computer(s).
Plug the power in to your router.
Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet".
Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
Turn on the computer.
From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit. To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.
If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.
Reset the both routers in order to go to the factory default setting. BELKIN (192.168.2.1) normally has no user name or password. So just hit enter. Linksys (192.168.1.1) User Name: admin Pass Word: admin You can always change the user name and password Good Luck!
The Belkin Router does not come with a factory set password or
username. I phoned Belkins's 800 number today and found it out. They
told me to reset the router by using a paper clip and holding down the
button for ten seconds or so.
You can try password - Admin ( usually works on old models ). Make sure to keep User name Blank.
You may need to ask Sky Broadband with the type of connection you may need to set up to the router. It could be a dynamic IP or static IP. Whatever settings your ISP requires, then it must be configured in your router.
