Security key for belkin router

My belkin router is rather old and I have lost the security key for it. I reformatted my comp last night without thinking about it and now I cannot connect to my wireless. I was wondering if there was anyway to recover the security key for it.

If it is asking for the WEP password it should be on the botom that is if you did not change anything on the router setings when you origanally bout it.

How do i secure my belikn from outsiders using it


Hi Friend,
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.

Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-

1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)
4> Change the wireless network key as well;it will be good if you use WEP key if you old XP computer,otherwise use WPA-TKIP if you vista/win7 computers
5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)

In case of any clarity feel free to contact belkin tech support

I lost my network security key, router is not working.


Get the user manual to verify how to make a master reset on your router. There should be a small button inside a very little hole, on the back, that you should press with a pen.

I tried to secure my Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router last night and set it up to require a password by going to 192.168.1.1. I also did something(I can't remember what) on the linksys website that made...


When configure security, is better to connect to network cable. Because once u setup the wireless key such as WEP or WPA, u will be log out from the wireless connection and u need the correct key to login.

I need help setting up my Belkin wireless G Router


Use a computer that is hard-wired (connected with an ethernet cable) to your Belkin router for this process:

1) Open Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser)

2) In the Address bar (where it says "http://www.fixya . . . " right now), delete the address that's there and type in these numbers: 192.168.2.1

3) Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard. This should open a Belkin router page. If it does NOT open a Belkin router page, follow steps 4 - 8 below. If it DOES open a Belkin router page, skip to step 9.

- - 4) Click "start" and then click "run." (On Vista, click "start")

- - 5) Type "CMD" (without the quotes) into the RUN window. (On Vista, type CMD where it says "start search.") Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

- - 6) You should now have a window open with a black background. Type "ping -r 1 www.yahoo.com" (without the quotes) and press the Enter key on your keyboard.

You will get a readout that looks something like this:

Reply from 66.94.230.43: bytes=32 time=294ms TTL=56
Route: 192.168.1.254

The number after the word "Route" is the address of your Belkin router. Write this number down.

- - 7) Close all open windows and open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser) again.

- - 8) Type in the address of your router.

9) On most Belkin routers, there is a section in the menu on the left that says "Wireless." Under this section is a link to "Security." Click that link, and you will see the wireless code you need to connect your laptop.

On some routers the "wireless" and "security" menus are in a different location, perhaps at the top of the page instead of on the left.

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Lost my network name and network key.


The best option in this case (assuming it has normal ethernet ports) is to connect a computer up by wire and configure the router from there.

Alternatively you can reset the router to factory defaults, via a button that should be near the power input on the unit, usually holding the button down for 10 seconds will reset it to factory defaults. From there you will be able to set the unit up as per normal, and should have no encryption key on the wireless.

Password


Ok... There are tree things you need to know about securing your WI-FI network.

1: Each computer needs to have "permision" to access your WI-FI network.

2: The "Passphrase" and the "Key" are not the same thing. The "Passphrase" doesn't always work. But the "Key" should. (MACs will need the "key")

3: Some WI-FI equipment is "too old" to use 128 bit WEP or WPA.
(I don't think this aplies to your problem)
