Hello charless1966,

In the documentation of your wireless router should be an IP address you can use to access the administration of your router. Generally it will be something like 192.168.2.1. Once you are in the admin section, you should have a link to the security settings. Select to enable WEP where you can set the security level and the password to connect to your wireless network. If you need more detailed instructions, post the model number of your router in your reply so we can give you step by step instructions on where to click and what to enter.

Thank you for using FixYa!

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

I need to know how to set up a password on my belkin wirless router


Are we talking about an administration password or a wireless password? If its the wireless password then you can just login into your router and click on wireless->Security. Choose encryption type (WEP 64/128, WPA, WPA2-PSK). Choose WPA2-PSK and type in a password. Click on apply changes. The router will reboot and you will have to use your password to connect to your wireless network.
PS: If its an administration password then let me know and I will give you the appropriate procedure.

I don't know how to password secure my belkin


if you go into the menu from the belkin screen using your internet browser it should say what the address is, something like 192.2.222) then you can put a password on the signal that is coming out of the router. this makes the network secure to only those that know the password don't forget that password.

A 2nd pc connected to my belkin 54g wirless rouer now mine cannot


Of course you've clicked "refresh" wireless network list? Go to the working computer and in a DOS box type IPCONFIG /ALL to find the gateway address for the router. ( Or refer to your wireless connection utility ). I will probably be 192.168.0.1 for example. In your browser address line put HTTP://192.168.0.1 and click the arrow. You should be talking to the router now, default id and/or password is typically ADMIN. Go to wireless settings and make sure SSID broadcast is turned on. Also note the SSID name, encryption type ( WEP, WPA, etc ) and note the key, if any. You now have enough information to connect the second computer. Yeah, this is complicated. If it's more than you want to know best get a friend to help you, though I may be able to answer specific questions once you get into it.

Wirless network problem


the belkin router gets the wire from the dsl/modem in the seperate jack port in the back then punch into the address bar on a explorer window

192.168.1.2 and make sure you have it set to unsecure network, you can fiddle with the password system later on securing the network.
