SOURCE: Mac laptops can't access an open (no security set) Belkin Router

A "locked" wireless means the router is encrypting packets of information as it sends/receives. You would need to enter the 64-bit or 128-bit key which was created by the router when you configured the passphrase to use.

SOURCE: I want to know if an ' N ' range wireless router s

All of the "N" routers I have seen are backward compatible to the 54 Mb "G" standard. An "N" router on your network will mot likely not work any better than the old "G" router did (unless there was something wrong with it) if you continue to use the old "G" card in the PC.

To take advantage of the greater range and other technical advances that the "N" router offers, an "N" card should used in the PC, too.

To maximize speed and reliability of any wireless "G" network, decrease as much a s possible, the distance between the "G" router and wireless PC.

An open air, "line of sight" path is best. A path through gypsum board, wood, foil backed insulation, brick, concrete, steel goes from "OK" to "very difficult". Basically, the thickness and type of material can affect the signal. The harder it is for you to drill through the material - so is the difficulty of passing a wireless signal through (more or less).

Minimize interference by reducing or removing any cordless 2.4 Ghz telephones, intercoms, etc. These devices *can* significantly reduce the range of wireless G networks. Try it yourself by unplugging the base and removing the battery from a handset to see if this is a source of interference for your location.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

I have my wii all set up except for the internet. a guy came out & fixed my wireless but now its asking fr a password & i dont know what that would be... i thought maybe on the back of my router...

If it's a Linksys wireless router, then the default password is "admin" in small letters (no caps). Don't worry about the username, it won't require it, until you get into the settings. If it's a Belkin, then Google: Belkin default password, and it will then give you a list of default passwords, depending on your model type. Good luck.

I have a new Canon MG5220 that I am trying to set up to my imac desktop and Belkin wireless router F6D4230-4v1. I need the SSID or network name and network key or WPA/WPA2 passphrase. I don't know...

That is on your router under wireless. You have to login to your router and look for wireless settings. the passphrase should be in there. The SSID is something that you should of made. That should also be under your wireless settings. It sounds like you have the SSID broadcasting turned off. Under the wireless settings turn it back on. Turning it off only gives you problems and it is a false security thinking that someone can't get on your network when it is turned off. In the event that you can't get on your router reset it by holding in the reset button on the back of the router for 5 secs then login with the default information.

I need to reset this so i can lock it i suppose?

If there has been a password already set that you don't know you will need to reset to factory defaults. If there isn't one look here: and find your router and try the default username and password. If you do end up resetting to factory defaults then look at the link above and use the default username and password to get into your router.
