Cannot access Belkin security settings

I have a belkin wireless G router.Previously I have successfully changed the ''guests password'' via security settings via 192.168.2.1 - via blank passsword at login page. Now when entering blank password I get access to status page ok but when security settings selected again returned to login page. i.e I cannot get past status page.

PLEASE HELP as cannot find any similar problem listed on web sites

  • Have you already set a password for the hardware? Or perhaps that when you put in spaces or a blank password?

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.

  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 do I secure my wireless connection?


The exact access and setting procedure can be found at Belkins web site.

Disconnect all cables to the router, then, in essence you connect to the router, usually via direct connection and direct your browser to the address specified (somthing like 192.168.1.1) and log into the router. Things that you want to change are ssytem ID, router name, Router access password (RECORD IT!!!!) and set up wireless security. An easy access password would be your home phone or cell phone number. if you make a cryptic password, tape it to the router, as you will forget it when a guest visits and needs access.

Another setting to check is that your router broadcasts it's presence, usually set to yes, but not always, by default.

SAVE settings on EACH PAGE or they do not save, as you go from page to page changing settings.

How do i change my security settings in my belkin router to WEP and what concequences will this have


You need to access your admin console, go into wireless settings and setup the WEP security. Usually, you will put in a passphrase and the router will generate keys from that. You will use that key to allow computers to connect to your wireless router for internet access. Be sure and change the default access password for your router's admin console, or all of the security in the world won't make a difference.

Personally, I prefer to use MAC filtering. Not the easiest to deal with when guests come over, but it keeps the pests out and I don't have to remember pass keys...

How do I setup security on my belkin wireless router that has been installed already?


Hi,
First here is the link to download the user manual in case you don't have it:
http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p74559-g_f5d7230-4v9xxx_manual.pdf
Now when talking about security, it depends on which part you want to secure:
1- secure the access to the router web interface: you can change the default password. the default password is blank so there is no password which is not secure at all.
2. secure the wireless access: you can change the WEP or WPA key used, first you will need to access to the router web interface and go to wireless security and then change the key. an other option is to filter by MAC address, so only the MAC addresses put in the list will be able to connect via wifi.
3. secure the incoming traffic: the NAT is enabled by default in all routers, but you can also add some rules for the incoming traffic.
That's very much it when talking about security of a wireless router.
If you need help to secure your router, i can work with you directly on your router and do the job via a remote control software like teamviewer.
Best Regards,

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop


The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

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.
