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.

Resetting the Router
Reset button - Red
The "Reset" button is used in rare cases when the Router
may function improperly. Resetting the Router will restore the
Router's normal operation while maintaining the programmed
settings. You can also restore the factory default settings by
using the "Reset" button. Use the restore option in instances
where you may have forgotten your custom password.

Resetting the Router
Push and release the "Reset" button. The lights on the Router will
momentarily flash. The "Router" light will begin to blink. When
the "Router" light becomes solid again, the reset is complete.
Restoring Your Router to factory Defaults
Press and hold the "Reset" button for at least 10 seconds,
and then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily
flash. The "Router" light will begin to blink. When the "Router"
light becomes solid again, the restore is complete.

I had to put my computer back to factory settings and now my Belkin wont go on wireless.It does work if i plug cable in.Is there anything i can do?


HI,
I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.

I bought it from my cousin my internet got cut off so i had it cut back on and nnow i dont no the security code to use it


There should be a small button on the router, Sometimes labeled "reset". It's often red/orange and you may need a paper clip to press it. Push the button while the router is plugged in and it will reset the router to factory defaults.

After, that when logging in, just click submit as the router has no password from the factory.

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection


  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

  • 3

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

    Master-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a pushpin into the router hole. Keep the pin pushed into the hole for 10 seconds. The lights on the router will flash and then the power/ready light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use.

    Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


    Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
