Reinstall the software and set the router up again with yourself as the administrator and also set it up as a secured connection. It will walk you through the process screen to screen. You will then get him off of your network.

SOURCE: wireless ready laptop not getting connected to internet through belkin router

You may want to check if the wireless switch is "ON"
on the laptop most wireless ready laptops has either a
button or toggle switch to enable the wireless radio..
if it's already enabled and you still cant connect to
the wireless network,try changing the wireless channel
from the router.

SOURCE: Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

SOURCE: setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I

You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

SOURCE: I have Belkin N150 Rouer.

f the modem light keeps blinking, it means that the router hasn't been configured yet. Also, rarely, it can be an issue with WAN port/modem port on the router or the ethernet cable connecting the modem to router or finally, modem may not be working as its not applicable in this case(as you said).

1.Connect comp.--(gray port) router (yellow port)--modem
2.On the computer, open the router page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of browser

NOTE : IF YOUR INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER IS CABLE FOLLOW THE BELOW STEPS

3.Under Internet WAN , SELECT the connection type as Dynamic.->NEXT
4.On the far left column, click on "MAC address" under Internet WAN.
5.Click on clone and apply changes and finally check Internet status
6.If internet status > Not connected, we need to do a network power cycle
7.For this, unplug the power from router, then from modem, then unplug the coaxial cable from cable modem.
8. Wait for 60 sec, then connect the coaxial cable, then connect power to modem, wait for lights on modem to get steady, then finally, plug in the power to router.
Now, you may see proper lights lit on the router.
All my best wishes for a fast internet service through the router.

FOR PPPOE OR DSL CONNECTIONS
1.Under Internet WAN , SELECT the connection type as PPPOE ->NEXT
2.ENTER THE USERNAME & PASSWORD PROVIDED BY YOUR IN INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
3.CLICK ON APPLY CHANGES



For any advanced help, revert asap!
Thanks and regards,
MILAN

My son cannot access the internet on his xbox one through my Belkin router


The network settings on the Xbox One are on this page.

http://support.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/networking/network-settings

You must be able to select the Access Point (Belkin Router) and put in the password.
You should be able to see the connection is live or not from the same page on the Xbox.

On some routers you also have to make special instructions to allow the Xbox to have Internet ports put through to the Xbox one.

Need to reset password on a Belkin d80


To restore it to the factory settings press a paperclip into the hole marked "reset" for 5-10 seconds. Do that wile the router is on. Then if you need to set a special password you can connect to it and change the password.

To change the password connect to your router by going to your browser on your computer after connecting to your router. The default address for belkin is usually "192.168.2.1" for login its either "admin" or just left blank. there shouldn't be any password. After you login you can go through the settings and change your wifi name and password. Most routers also have many other security options like only allowing certain computers on that you add their mac addresses. Hope this helped. If you need more help just leave a comment.

Where is the administration located?


You need to encrypt your wireless router.
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

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

I'm in the middle of my afternoon internet time, (2pm-6pm daily) & my belkin wireless router's internet light begins flashing & I then lose connectivity, what could it be? A driver issue maybe?


it could be. i owned a wireless router one time, (a fairly cheap one) and it was under almost constant, heavy usage (2 - sometimes 3 wireless laptops, 1 desktop and xbox live) and one day it just gave out. it could be a driver problem, but what i would do is unplug the router, let it set for 30 seconds or so, then plug it back in. this almost always fixed any router i stumbled across.

How do i block someone from illegally stealing my wireless intern


Hello,

You have two options to stop someone from stealing your wireles connection.

The first is to use a more secure encryption.
Use WPA2 personnal with AES encryption.
You can set this security mode by logging on to your router and changinhg the wireless security.

The next solution is to turn on MAC filtering and make sure her computer is not listed as a safe MAC address.
This is also turned on from the router.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Pat

Make sure DHCP is turned OFF. START>>RUN>>services.msc enter. Scroll down to DHCP, and set to OFF & Disable. Also if there is Zero Configuration, service disable that too. Make sure there is a good clear path between the Antenna and computer.
