Question about Belkin Computers & Internet
For no apparent reason the wireless stopped working. The Belkin itself has blue light up and is working with cable connection. On wireless it asks for the WEP password and then when you put it in, it just comes back with timed out and nothing happens. I have been going around in circles with this! Marie
To reset the Belkin back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and then power for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I have the same problem on my fd57633au the problem only appears when i use torrents.. i believe the modem cannot handle too many open connections (tho i am still unsure) currently testing now limiting outgoing connections and it appears to be working fine (i can normally get the moment to halt within 5mins)

You can always press the reset button and wipe all settings out. You will have to re-enter passwords and encryption to protect your network.

Check for a firmware update and, if that doesn't work, call Belkin and discuss a possible warranty replacement.
I have had nothing but problems with their equipment and do not recommend it.

Tips for a great answer:
All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.
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
