Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Key, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.
To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank
Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)
connect the router directly to a pc or Laptop open a browser, put 192.168.1.1 in the adres bar login with blank fields set up in the security tab your security rules. (choose WPA TKIP, an create a password)

How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router1.Step
your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect
the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off. 2.Step
all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet
cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You
should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this
cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect
the other end to your PC's Ethernet port. 3.Step
on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take
approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug
adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the
modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC. 4.Step
lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN
light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on.
Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly. 5.Step
and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router.
Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone.
Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure other settings.
You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 For belkin router http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click
on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is
your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Thanks for using FixYa.
No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.
Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".
normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.
i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected
