I will solve with the assumption you are trying to connect the MomLaptop to the Wireless Belkin Model Number ??????

1. On the back of the router, there should be a small hole with a button within it.
2. With an end of a paper clip and the router powered on, push in the button for about 15 seconds, then release it.
3. The lights will react, but that is okay.

Now the router is back to factory defaults, so with the manual in hand proceed..

  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the BELKIN router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address which would be http://192.168.2.1 (this is the default IP address of the router) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. The Login window will appear and prompt you for a Password. By default the password is left blank and you can click Submit.

* * Create a unique password for your WEP - Suggestion - Use the XP Product Codes under your Laptop, selecting a pattern of your choice, but one that will be easliy remembered :-) * *

After you have the router reconfigured, you will need to have the Laptop search for the new WEP address and configuration. Then you should be good to go...

On the back of the router, there is a tiny reset button. With router on, hold that button down for 10 seconds. This restores the router to its original factory settings. The password will be blank and the IP will be 192.168.2.1

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

It wont connet to my belkin wireless router


Hi...to find the password, or network key:

1) Login to your router.

To do this, open a web browser on a computer, as if about to view a web page: then type the router address, http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

2) You should see a prompt asking for a password. Just click 'submit' button if none has been set: otherwise, enter the correct router login password.

3) You should see the router user interface. In the left hand menu, under Wireless, click Security.

The 'Pre-Shared Key' or PSK you see there is the network key (password) you need.

Please come back to Fixya if this doesn't work or if you need help with any of it. Good luck
