Hi, here's a quick guide for you:

1. Connect to the router via Ethernet cable

2. Login to the router via a web browser, by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar

3. Click to login, leaving password blank (unless you have set a password)

4. Go to Wireless > Security. Select Security Mode WPA-PSK.
Enter your network key (password) under ‘Pre-shared key’ – make a note of it – click ‘Apply Changes’. That’s it, your wireless is encrypted.

For better security/more details:

1. Pick up a manual from Belkin UK
2. When you’re in your user interface, change the SSID and router password for a better level of security (see this tip for more details).

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if anything doesn't work, or if you need more info. Good luck

I am trying to add another computer but when tryin to connect its asking for my security key and I dont know what this is please help???


The security key is the password that your router requires for the security settings that have been specified. You can set up a security key (or change your current one) by logging into the router's settings and going to the Wireless Security section under the Wireless tab.

Iam not able to get the internet on my laptop. i have a desktop which has internet. i have the belkin wireless g plus.


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Start with the router. On a PC that you have connecting to the router, open a browser and enter http://192.168.0.1/ Login as admin with the password you setup. Use the wireless setup wizard to walk through establishing Internet connection with your internet provider. Set your SSID and security protocol and key. Save settings and wait for router to restart.

From Vista PC with wireless adapter, be sure to check d-link site for latest driver. Right click on network icon in lower right (task area) and select Connect to and view available networks. You should see the SSID save on the router. Click on it and choose connect. You will be prompted for the security key.

Post back if have more issues.

HI! all your computer is connected except for one, you are connected to to the local network but cant get an internet connection, I dont see any problem with your wireless connection bcoz you are connected to the lan, check the security settings of your browser on your windows vista, go to internet option and security, lower it down to medium security, so that you can access the internet or try using other browser like firefox or google chrome.. check your firewall settings as well on your windows vista..

Secutiry issue


You will need to access your router and configure your wireless settings. If you are uncertain about the password/username to access the router 0 then you might find it on label at the backside of the router.

Failing this - the favourite combinations are :

Username admin

Password admin

or sustitute "password" (without the quotes) as the password. If that does not work then you could "google" the question.

I am trying to set up security for my lynksis.  Currently it is unsecured. I was following directions then lost interent connection.  When I tried to use the ISP of 192.168.1.100 nothing happens.  I just...


Hi!
To access the router's web interface for configuration, you need a PC that's physically connected to the router (ethernet connection). Follow these steps:

Step 1 Open your Internet browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar (http://192.168.1.1) . The default IP address is 192.168.1.1 . At the login, leave the username blank and type your password (default password is admin). Click the OK button.

Step 2 To setup security, Click the Wireless tab > then select Wireless Security (right below the Wireless tab).

Step 3 Under Wireless Security, you can either select WEP or WPA for wireless security.

When selecting WEP 64 bits: (for windows XP SP1 to Vista)

Look for Key 1 box - type a 10 hexadecimal password (meaning letters A to F or numbers 0 to 9 only). Example: ABC1234567 or 985D8A8F04 .

When selecting WEP 128 bits (for XP SP2 to Vista)

Look for Key 1 box - type a 26 character Hexadecimal code.

When selecting WPA PErsonal: (XP SP2 to Vista)

Look for a passphrase box - type a password at least 8 characters (numbers or letters).

Please DO NOT FORGET the password that you set - you will need this for wireless connection.

Click Save settings.

I hope that helps!

Good luck and have a nice day!
