Tried to secure my wireless connection, but all I did was stop my Belkin adapter from getting internet access. I now can't log onto my Belkin router setup page anymore. Can't I just reset this? I can get online fine, but I want to undo the WAN username and password, but I can't access 192.168.2.1 anymore. I keep getting a search page.

try to access the setup page of the belkin router.
type 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 on the address bar of your internet browser. type in the password for your router. Then you'll be able to see the setup page of your router. Just go to the wireless settings page of the setup page and checkout what the wireless security key is. Tell me if you have anymore problems.
The wireless security of the Belkin must have been enabled. Use a computer wired to the router to access the setup page and get the network key. In the address bar of your browser, type192.168.2.1. By default, leave the password blank. Once on the setup page of the router, go to Wireless -> Security.You will see the network key here. On your laptop, view the available wireless networks and you should see your wireless network name or SSID, then when you click connect you have to enter the network key. I hope this helps!
If you can still remember the password that you entered on the configuration page, follow the steps below: 1. In the lower right corner of your screen (near the time and date), right click on the wireless network connection icon, then select view available wireless networks. Or, if your wireless adapter has its own wireless utility, you should see that in the lower right corner of your screen. 2. You should see the router's wireless network name (SSID). By default, the SSID is "belkin54g". Select the SSID and it will prompt you for the network key. 3. The network key is the password that you entered on the router configuration page.
If you cannot remember the password that you entered, follow the steps below. a. Connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. b. Access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar. c. Go to Wireless -> Security. Copy the network key. d. Then follow steps 1-4 above.
For the MAC computer: 1. From the Airport menu, select the SSID.
4. When asked for a password, enter the network key that you entered on the router.
To enable the wireless connection, you need to access the setup page of the router.
In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.2.1.
By default, leave the password blank.
On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.
You may change the SSID (wireless network name), so that you can easily identify which is your network.
Then go to Security under Wireless. You can use either WEP or WPA, depending on the capabilities of your wireless adapter. If you are not sure, you may use the standard wireless security which is WEP. Just enter a passphrase and it will generate a network key.
Take note of the network key, you will use this to all your wireless computers.
You are trying to access the Belkin router’s Web based Configuration page and you are not able to do so. You can access the Configuration page from any computer behind the router.
To address this issue, follow the instructions below:
First check for the physical connections between the computer and the router. There should be a cable (cat5 or above) running from one of the LAN port of the router to the Ethernet card in the computer.
If the computer is wireless, it should be associated to the Router/AP.
Check for any firewalls (Mcafee, Norton Internet Security) on the computer, which should be disabled.
Check for an IP Address on the computer in the range of the router i.e. 192.168.2.x (x can range from 2 to 254). The router also assigns an automatic IP address to the computers in the range 192.168.2.x (x can range from 2 to 100). For instructions on how to check the IP address on the computer, Refer to Article 13.
If you are not getting an IP Address on the computer from the router you will need to manually assign an IP Address to the computer.
You also need to restore the Internet Explorer browser to its default settings.
Go to Control Panel and click Internet options. Select the Program Tab and click on Reset Web Settings.
You should be able to get the router's configuration page if the above instructions are followed in order.
You not being able to logon to the router's configuration page could be due to the following reasons:
The computer is not able to establish connectivity with the router (wired or wireless). This can happen due to physical reasons E.g.: Improper cabling, bad cable, and no wireless signals.
The computer not getting an automatic IP address from the router (DHCP ** assigned).
Firewalls (Mcafee, Norton Internet Security) on the computer blocking the communication between the computer and the router.
Improper browser settings (Internet Explorer)
** Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
The Router is a configurable device and you can manually log into the router’s configuration page to set its various operating parameters like connection type, security features and options to update the router’s firmware.
