Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
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?
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.
