Left network key for belkin router behind in states

I left our network key for belkin router behind in states, we are now in KSA(Saudi Arabia). Both of our laptops had problems and when we got them back, we could not go wireless. It is asking for the network key. We had our set up with security due when back in the states. What do I do. I have no access to my network key. Should I just buy a new router?

    I did not get my providers ip address to put in, and instead had already connected the wireless and used the one generated from that as my ip address which was wrong and turned out to be the default address, therefore now it won't recognize the wireless and connect to it at all, and I can't access the web based setup either. Please assist if possible, oh and I tried the reset button to no avail.

Try dooing a Compleete reset of your router. there is a tiny tiny hole on the bak side of your router ( sometimes on the front ) and it should say RESET engraved over it, find a tac or a small needle ( maybe toothpick ) and hit the reset butten behind the hole, make shure it says " RESET " over the hole, and dont push to hard, leave router standing for a cupple of minutes and try the default WEP key listed on the underside of your router.

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
