Question about Belkin Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router
I want to configure this router with Airtel Broadband whose IP range is from 192.168.1.1. Also want secure access to my Laptop.
I tried to change IP address of router and also tried to enable Access point setting but it never does.
Its firmware version is latest one. i.e 2.00.002
Please solve my problem.
Whoops, found it. http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/f5d6231-4_manual.pdf
If I were setting this up for myself or a customer, I'd keep the Airtel IP's and let it be the DHCP server. To do this, you pick a fixed IP address for the Belkin, something like 192.168.1.251. Log into the Belkin and change the LAN IP address to that and turn off DHCP. Those instructions start on pdf page 34.
Now, plug one of the 4 ports into the Airtel, and from a computer connected to the network type in 192.168.1.251 in Internet Explorer. It should get you to the Belkin where you finish setting it up for wireless security and password from page 38.
You won't use the WAN port.

If you have an existing network, chances are you have already
configured network services on the network. In this case, you would use
the router as a pure Access Point to extend the range of your network by
allowing more attachment of wireless and wired computers. You MUST
also turn off the DHCP server on the router if there is a DHCP server running to
avoid IP address conflict.
To configure the router as an Access Point with the
DHCP server disabled:
Click the Basic Settings tab on the top navigation bar.
Select Access Point Mode.
Click the Next button.
Click OK to dismiss the DHCP disabled message
box (The DHCP server will be disabled in Access Point Mode by default).
Advanced Settings tab on the top
Click the Advanced IP Settings tab on the
left navigation bar.
Assign an IP address to the Wireless Broadband Router.
NOTE: The IP address should be reserved by the DHCP server. The Wireless Broadband Router cannot act as a DHCP client, therefore, it needs a static IP address for its LAN interface.
Save & Restart button.
Note the status bar at the bottom of the screen.

network into any LAN
port on the Wireless Broadband Router.
