Question about Belkin Computers & Internet

Belkin wireless stopped working - when re submitting WEP password, just says timed out

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

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.

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 http://192.168.2.1
  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.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  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

HOW CAN I RESET MY NETWORK KEY PASSWORD?


Steps to find a WEP key:

1. Open a browser (the program used to access the internet).

2. Type the following into the address bar of the browser. If using a Belkin router type "192.168.2.1". The address bar is the area where webpages are typed. It is important when typing in that there is NO www. before the numbers, but do put http://

3. If all has gone well this should open a page that says Belkin.

3. There may be the need to login. When using a Linksys if you don't know what the username and password are it may still be the factory settings, and so enter in "admin" for the username and "password" for the password. If using a Belkin router, the factory settings often come with no password, so just click submit without typing in a password.

4. Click on a) "Wireless" or b) "settings".

5. Click on a) "Wireless security" or b) "wireless settings".

6. There should be a page with a WEP key listed.

7. Write it down/copy and use as you wish!

Encryption problems


You just have to enter the WEP encryption that you have configured on the Belkin router to reconnect your laptop back to the wireless router. To verify the WEP of the router:

  • Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  • You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
  • On the left side of the page, click Wireless Security or Security below Wireless .
  • Take note of the WEP key.
  • Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
