Hi v_venom,

What you need to do is open your internet browser and in the address line type in 192.168.2.1. And I'm assuming you've got the router hooked up properly. Once you type that address a user name and password dialog box will appear. Leave the password blank and click "Login" On the right side menu options, click on System Settings, and it will allow you to enter a new password for the modem.

Good Luck,

Mark


P.S. Please don't forget to leave a rating.

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

Laptop won't connect to the router


Let's start with the easy first. It's a ROUTER issue. If it came with a CD, DO NOT RUN IT!!! You will not like the result when Belkin tries to take over your wireless card, especially in Vista.

The best you can hope for is Plug in the Belkin to your Modem. If it's DSL, you probably have a PPPoE connection and there's a username and password TO THE INTERNET> If it's a Cable modem, you probably use DHCP. Hope for that, because out of the box the Belkin is looking for DHCP. Plug your computer into the router and see if it connects.

Set your computer for Obtain a DHCP and see if your computer gets 192.168.2.x (possibly 2). Now, open Internet Explorer (IE) and type in 192.168.2.1 in the address bar (no http, no www, just the numbers). If it logs you in, you're all set to make the changes to the router, no password is required on initial login. If for some strange reason the router does not give out DHCP addresses, manually set the network card to use 192.168.2.x (anything but 1)
the mask at 255.255.255.0 and the gateway at 192.168.2.1.

Set your wireless up with the wireless access tab and set your security for the wireless login. I use WEP with the 64 bit password of 1011121314.

All the above was for the easy. If you're using something ugly like an AT&T or Verizon DSL and you need PPPoE settings, you need to follow the instructions for your specific router to set it up. It may require the assistance of the Telco, as they can direct you into their modem to turn on bridged mode and the like. Since you can get into it by just plugging in the computer directly to the modem, I'm thinking that DHCP settings will work.

Please post back and mention your country and the exact number of the Belkin router. I don't know what version software you have, but if it's new, I'm guessing Axxxx. Here's a link
http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p74559-h_f5d7230-4vaxxx_manual.pdf

Starting on pdf page 29 (25 real) are the step-by-step manual configuration instructions. If you follow along, it will tell you how to set up PPPoE and the like.

Good luck and please post back if you run into any problems.

Lost password into router need reset


Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

Secutiry for BelkinF5D7230-4 router using Vista


Hi, here's a quick guide for you:

1. Connect to the router via Ethernet cable

2. Login to the router via a web browser, by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar

3. Click to login, leaving password blank (unless you have set a password)

4. Go to Wireless > Security. Select Security Mode WPA-PSK.
Enter your network key (password) under ‘Pre-shared key’ – make a note of it – click ‘Apply Changes’. That’s it, your wireless is encrypted.

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if anything doesn't work, or if you need more info. Good luck

Belkin wireless security


plug a laptop straight into the router with a cable. then open an internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1
type in the username and password. the default will be admin for username and password for password. then close the browser and unplug the cable. it might detect wireless internet after a few seconds. if it doesn't, it is possible that you have a PC set up as the internet gateway for the laptops or something, so when you introduce encryption the laptops can't get access. in which case you should go to your wireless icon on the laptop and click that and open the connection list. double click on the wap secured connection and try to connect. it should ask for a username and password, which you have secured the wireless encryption with. enter that and it should connect to the gateway.
dunno if this helps, good luck

Belkin router problem


VISTA and wireless don't go well together. First, I would disable your firewall, you can turn it on later when everything works and play with the settings, second use the hex value instead of the password key when logging into the wireless device, third try it both with windows managing the connection and with the vendor software. Some wireless prefer one or the other depending on their compatibility with the Vista virus.

Wireless network security


alright... it does depend on the model of belkin itself but here goes... assuming you have windows since most people with mac are QUITE familiar with PCs 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.You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless . . set it to have a wireless password... (again the exacts depend on your model) by doing this a computer must have that password you made to access the connection.. now depending on you computers operating system(ie: windows 95,98,200,ME,NT,XP vista or a mac) will depend on how you put this "password" into your computer... windows- START-CONTROL PANEL-(network and internet options)NETWORK CONNECTIONS-VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS and when you try to reconnect to your internet connection you will be prompted for the password... IF however your wireless adapters have their own wireless clients then you will have to contact their tech support instead of that last paragraph heres the number to belkin tech support in case your router will not allow you into the interface 1 800 2BELKIN x2263
