Question about Belkin Wireless Pre-N (F5D8230-4) Router (F5D82304)
I recently was trying to secure my wireless router to keep outsiders out. i changed the channel, and changed other features, which caused the "security" light to come on. i changed some of the damage done but i cant hook to the internet without an ethernet cable. none of the laptops or pc can hook up through wireless, but can through ethernet cable. so internet is there but not through wireless, my question is, how can i get the wireless to work, and how to properly secure my wireless router?
If you have secured the router you should have used atleast either wep or wpa, changing the channel is just for interference problems. when you use wep encryption for example you will need to type in a pasword and the router will generate a pass phrase which will be a hex 8 digit and letter mixture which is the code that you will have to enter into each pc's wireless network card. If you are using windows wireless zero configuration (WZC) a selection of wireless connections will appear within your range and then when you connect to your network a window will pop up and ask you to enter the numbers and letters that the router generated, this will have to be re entered and the wireless connection will connect. If you are using the software that came with the wireless cards this will be a similair proceedure but will probably use their own wizard. Your wired connection will work without you needing a password because it's not wireless and therefore has no need for a security password.
