You will most likely have to reset your router to factory defaults, do a google search for

"Hard reset Belkin Router (your model number)"

or "Reset Belkin (your model number) router to factory defaults.

How do i reset my password for my belkin router


Hi Andrew,
If you have not entered a password before during the setup, you wouldn't need one and could leave the password field blank and still get in to the router.
If you have entered a password and forgotten it, then you'll have to do a factory rest. Unfortunately this will wipe all the data and put it back to factory status.

Setup steps:


  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
  2. Leave the router powered on.
  3. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  4. Remove the paperclip.
  5. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.
  6. The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default.

There is a photo on the belkin website which will help if you cannot find the reset hole:

Need default password!


Hi there.
The password should be underneath the router itself next to the network key.

Can't get a linksys wireless G PCI adapter to connect to my belkin wireless g router


Alright, First thing is to sett up the router properly. How well experience in this are you? Do you know how to IP into it and set it up manually? do you just use the easy install disk? Do you know ow to set up the encryption key?

Im asking so i dont have to spend alot of typing, explaining something you may already know. If you dont though, its o.k. I will help you.


Typically you want to set the router up first and set an encryption key. Usually something that no one can geuss like ADMIN or PASSWORD or something easily guessed. Also you name your router, like " The Big Puff or My router or some name that no one else will have so you can easily distinguish your wireless signal from others. Default is LINKSYS and the default IP is 192.168.1.1 and the password is ADMIN.

If you flip the router upside down, you will see a spot that tells you this. Thats why you have to change it, cuz everyone knows it.

Also, you need to set the Router password too so that no one else can ip into it and change it on you.

Alot of the times, the setup disk will have a easy setup wizard that can make this easy for newbies.

You want to be sure to have a secure and functioning router. Once this is achieved, install the wireles adapter and drivers software.

You have two options, use windows to control the adapter or the belkins utility that came with it. whichever works best for you.

Now in the options you have to set up the connection or you can just findit,click and connect and enter the encryption.

If windows is running the show for the adapter, you can right click on your wireless icon in the bottom right corner and select, " VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

When it loads it will show all signals including yours if you set up the router right.

Yours should be the strongest signal as well.

Select it or double click it and windows will automatically try to connect and when it does it will ask for the encryption key that you gave it earlier when you set up the router.

Enter that in exactly with caps and lower case where applicable.

It should then connect.

The situation is similar when using the belkins utility instead except that its more graphically friendly.

All wireless devices are made to be used with each other and have the same FCC requirements and theoretically it should matter which brand you use, they should all be compatible if there of the same type. I.E. G or B.

Try this and let me know if you still need help.

Dont bw affraid to call linksys on setting up your wireless router. When i first started out and knew nothing, i called linkysys for help and the guy walked me through the whole thing. Same with Belkin, allthough belkin support was not as good.

I want a secure line for my router on my laptop


While it is impossible to be 100% secure on a wireless network, there are several things that will help. Use the wep encription, use mac filtering and add only the addresses you want to connect. Once you have everything set up, disable broadcasting the SSID, and lastly, change the user name and password on the router. Don't forget to enable the firewall on your laptop. Amother thing you can do is go around with your laptop and map the signal range so that you have an idea where the signal limits are.

If you dont know the password or have forgotten it, just remove the power and hold the reset in under the bottom of the unit in, reconnect the power and count for 7 sec. lights will flash and the password will be default again. It resets it back to factory settings.

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

I am trying to disble the security encription for my Motorol router but I have lost the user id and password info to open the gateway


Hello boboso1

If you do not have the login to access the router's UI (user interface), then you must physically reset the router to factory default settings in order to regain access to the UI and to disable its wireless encryption. (Wireless encryption is not normally enabled w/ the default settings.)

If you would like to give us the router manufacturer, model number and version number, we can point you to where you can find the owner's manual for this router.

The manual will provide you w/ directions for reconfiguring your router.

If you have any more questions, just ask. We're here to help.

Thank you,
BJ @:)
