If you go to www.belkin.com/support then you can search for the manual.

Under "Product Support Browser" choose "Networking Products" --> "Routers" --> and your router type

On the right hand side under "documentation" click on "user manual-english"  Click on the pdf icon..


Sorry if I am writing each step which is too tedious.

 

This information is in the manual.

Go to 192.168.2.1 IP address.. If your brother has not changed the password then it will be blank.

Under Internet/WAN connection type you can create the password for the router.

 

You can also update the firmware for the router so that your router has the latest updated software that makes the router run.

 

Hope this helps.

I have a new Belkin router, I connected my desk top wirelessly to the internet and set a WPA2 security key to it to make it a secured network. I tried to connect to the internet on my laptop expecting it...


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! You will need to reconfigure as well the settings on your computer since it was configured on the old network key. Your computer will read the old configuration that you set before you purchased that new router. Basically, you will need to removed that old configuration so that computer will automatically recognized the new settings. Please follow these steps.

1. Click on Start.

Hi Friend,
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.

Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-

1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)

5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)

Setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I


You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

All started with wireless router (Belkin)


Actually, is does **t really matter what computer *********** in law has or whether she has a computer or **t. Your wireless connection is **t with her computer, it is with the router.

I take it for granted that the router has got a wireless facility , since you said you set it up. Your computer must then also be wireless enabled (internal or Using an USB Dongle).

Set the connection type on the router and your computer as such that there is ** authorization or encryption involved - once you got that working please the ensure that you activate authorization and encryption for security reasons
