Re: wireless network security

Alright... it does depend on the model of belkin itself but here goes... assuming you have windows since most people with mac are QUITE familiar with PCs Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page.You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless . . set it to have a wireless password... (again the exacts depend on your model) by doing this a computer must have that password you made to access the connection.. now depending on you computers operating system(ie: windows 95,98,200,ME,NT,XP vista or a mac) will depend on how you put this "password" into your computer... windows- START-CONTROL PANEL-(network and internet options)NETWORK CONNECTIONS-VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS and when you try to reconnect to your internet connection you will be prompted for the password... IF however your wireless adapters have their own wireless clients then you will have to contact their tech support instead of that last paragraph heres the number to belkin tech support in case your router will not allow you into the interface 1 800 2BELKIN x2263

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.

Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

To enable the wireless connection, you need to access the setup page of the router.

In your browser's address bar, type

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

You may change the SSID (wireless network name), so that you can easily identify which is your network.

Then go to Security under Wireless. You can use either WEP or WPA, depending on the capabilities of your wireless adapter. If you are not sure, you may use the standard wireless security which is WEP. Just enter a passphrase and it will generate a network key.

Take note of the network key, you will use this to all your wireless computers.

I hope this helps!

To connect Belkin wireless G USB Network Adapter

Yes, if you have set up your router to have WEP, WPA and so on you have to supply the encryption key on your computer when connecting to the network. If not or if unsure, try connecting your computer via ethernet cable and access the router's admin page via IE...

I have a belkin wireless adaptor, but a D-Link router, how do i link them!?!?????

You need to know the wireless settings on the Dlink router first. To check the wireless settings, you need to use a wired computer to the router.

Then in the address bar of a web browser (Internet explorer or firefox), type

By default, the user name is Admin and leave the password empty.

Go to Wireless Settings. Take note of the following:

1. Enable wireless should be checked.
2. Take note of the wireless network name. You may change this into a unique name so that you can easily determine your own wireless network.
3. Visibility status should be Visible.
4. Under Wireless security mode, it depends on you if you would like to enable it or not. If you would like to enable the security, just select WEP. Then enter the WEP Key 1. This is like a password for your wireless network, use letters from A-F and numbers from 0-9.

Then click Save Settings.

Once the belkin wireless adapter is installed properly on your computer, there are 2 ways to connect to your wireless network.

Either you use the Belkin WLAN monitor or the Wireless network connection (for Windows OS). When you view the available networks or Site survey, you will see the wireless network name on your router. It will prompt you for a network key if wireless security is enabled.

Make sure you enter the WEP key 1 in your router. This is case sensitive.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Connecting to secure network

when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
