SOURCE: network security

Once you've logged into the router (open your browser, and type ONLY this into the Address line, without the quotes: "192.168.2.1). You should get a log in pop-up, "admin" is the username, and the password is left blank (or is sometimes "password"), again without the quotes.

Once logged in, you have a series of menus on the left hand side, Usually large blue lines demark each section, i.e. "Lan Setup", "Internet WAN", and of course the section you are looking for "Wireless". Under each header is listed each of the pages available for that function. For example, under Wireless you'd want the first 2 items: "Channel and SSID" - this is where you set the name of the wireless network; and "Security", which is where you setup whichever one of the Encryption options you want. This Encryption key is the password you will use when connecting wirelessly to the router from a PC.

Hopefully that is enough to get you setup.

SOURCE: im trying to set security on belkin n router

Hi...if your router has WPS capability, such as a special button to set up wireless security, then to use it your client computer/device must also be WPS enabled.

If it is, there are usually two options to configure WPS security: the push button method, or the PIN number. The push button method usually requires that you press the WPS button on the router, then within a set time, press the equivalent button on the computer (eg laptop, or whatever device it is). The PIN number method requires a PIN to be entered into the client computer. The PIN can sometimes be found on a sticker on the router.

Your manual should help with the details, but see this page for some more info.
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101691.asp


If you don't have a WPS enabled computer or don't want to use it, you can set up security manually. Please come back to Fixya if you'd like help with this.

SOURCE: lost password into router need reset

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

SOURCE: i need to password secure my belkin wireless router

This is not a difficult task, but if it is done incorrectly, your router will need to be reset. So, let's go ahead and get a long, thin pin, or sewing needle,or something that will reach into the recessed reset button hole, because we may need it a few times.
I too have a belkin wireless router, so I know a little about them. However, I dont know your exact model or firmware/software programming, so a true "step by step" is not possible from me. Contact Belkin for operator assistance. Here are some General things you will need to do.
1. Reset the router. Go ahead and do that now. that way, we have a clean slate. Press the reset button and allow the router to restart.
2. Make sure the Modem is connected to the INTERNET port on the router. You should see 5 ports on the router, 1 2 3 4 are ONLY FOR COMPUTERS. if it has a number do not put anything on it unless its a computer, or xbox or playstation game console. The MODEM, the DSL, or w/e will NEVER go to ports 1 2 3 or 4. Now, make sure that your MAIN computer is HARD WIRED to PORT 1 on the router. You DO NOT EVER make wireless router adjustments over a wireless connection. You must hard wire to the router.
3. LOG IN to the router. The router has a built in website that allows you to operate it. on a belkin router, that website is located at the Default Gateway address. (ok, you probably dont know what that means, but thats ok, we can still do this). MOST belkins have a default gateway address of 192.168.2.1. So, you will open your internet explorer and go to the ADDRESS BAR. There, you will type http://192.168.2.1 and press GO. You SHOULD see a page that says Belkin.
4. BY DEFAULT there is no username or password. so if you are asked to login, leave them blank and hit submit.
5. this is where it can get hairy, but, its nothing the reset button cannot fix. You will be looking for a few things First thing to do is click login, of course, so you can log in. remember, its default, so its blank.
6. Now that youre logged in, look for WIRELESS and click there. If you are using wireless machines, make sure wireless is ENABLED. It should be, by default, but, lets take a look and make sure, just to be safe.
7. Next, were gonna set the SSID to your last name, (or your dogs name or your nickname or favorite place). The SSID is default to Belkin, but if 10 ppl around you ALL have belkin routers, you'd have no way of knowing which one is yours, So, the SSID boradcasts a unique name to identify YOUR network. Changing the word Belkin to "Scoobydoo" would mean that you would be the Scoobydoo network, and anytime anyone is in range of your router, they would see "scoobydoo" as a site. You also want to ENABLE Essid broadcast, and unless you have an older wireless B card, set to Wireless G only. (g is more secure). Everything else, leave at the current setting.
8. Now we are going to SECURE your wireless so that when people see "scoobydoo" they wont be able to JOIN it, unless they have your KEY. Click Security. We are going to create a key. With Wireless G you can use a 26 character key, which is a set of HEXIDECIMAL characters. HEX is 0-9 and A-F. No letter higher than F will occur in Hex. So, click WEP (wpa is usually more secure, but I prefer WEP). Choose WEP and Choose 128 bit encryption. Next, use a passphrase, (this will generate a key for you). Say you put "shaggy" as the passphrase. Based on that word, a 26 character key would be generated. Now, This is important, WRITE THAT KEY DOWN EXACTLY AS ITS SHOWN. Without that key, no one can access your router on wireless. Also, dont forget to press "Apply Changes". Once you apply those changes, all your wireless connections will be lost. You will now have to go to each wireless computer, and apply the key to each one so they can access the router.

the default password is blank. If one has been set and is not known, then you have to reset the router using the reset button on the back to clear it (All setting are set back to defaults) then you re-configure the security and network settings

Security of wireless network


You can directly connect your computer to the router thorugh the routers "internet" port and then re-run setup. OR you can type the IP address of the router into your address bar (the default is tipically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and then enter the router username and password (I believe the Belkin default is username:"Admin" password:"Password") in the admin control planel look for a "wireless security" tab. You can then define your wirelss security settings there. Just remember to configre the same settings on all devices that will connect to the router.
