    As i said I am not very tech therefore, 1, my Belkin does'nt tell you which is WAN or LAN port only one port is yellow specificaly for the Router to laptop lead (yellow lead supplied), 2, I have no idea what to set the SSID to and do I need to set up encryption, once again this is a new world for me. By the way my laptop is a Advent 5431 with wi-fi pre-instaled and my Belkin is modle number FSD7230-4

The procedure is 1st. to connect the LAN cable to the router (not to the LAN port marked WAN) and use the browser to configure the Belkin router for the wireless settings.
In the wireless setup change the SSID from the default SSID to what you like., set up encryption (if your wireless card supports WAP then use WAP encryption, if not use WEP 128bit)
Also change the administrator password (write it down and put it in a safe place).
you can disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and router.
If you had not installed the wireless driver for you wireless card, do so now.
Connect the LAN cable to the WAN port on the router and the other end to the Hughesnet.
Now configure the wireless card with the SSID and the encryption that was set on the router.
If all goes well you should see your router and get on to the Internet.
Get back to me with error messages if you have problems.

Somehow my belkin 54g router is now a secured network and i didnt set it to be and now i cant get a signal because i dont know the security code. how do i put it back to being unsecured?


Please enter the IP address of the Router in the internet explorer and enter the user name and password of the router.(admin, admin). When the windows will open, you can see the wireless security. When you click on that you can see the security key. Other wise you can change the security key.

Cant connect belkin 54g router to internet


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

Trying to set up wireless router to satellite phone/internet


i've never worked with a 7740, but i've installed hundreds of hn7000's and hn9000's. the issue is usually that the router and modem are defaulting to the same ip address. if your router supports has a web-based config utility (as most do) try cat-5'ing to the router with your computer while the router is NOT connected to the modem. log into the router and set it's ip address to something OTHER THAN 192.168.0.1 (i use 192.168.1.1 for my customers) reboot the router and reconnect it to the modem. the ip conflict should now be resolved.
