1.Click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections. 2.Right-click the network connection that you want to configure, and then click Properties. 3.On the General tab (for a local area connection), or the Networking tab (for all other connections), click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties.
Check the option which says use the following ip address and enter the ip address that you have forced in the belkin router, type thesubnet mask 255.255.255.0 and enter the default gate way the ip address of the belkin router (ip address that you use to open Belkins page)

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router. Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.
If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command ipconfig /all
it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.
If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.
If you have manual of the router, read what's the default IP adress for accessing router. You can also try typing the 192.168.1.1 instead of a web adress in your WORKING COMPUTER'S web browser (this is the default IP usually). You will get window with username and password (you will find username and password in the manual of the router). When you access router, you can turn Wireless LAN on/off and change all values you need. You really should read manual first, it will all be clear to you after that.
There is probably a reset button somewhere on the device, it is probably a small pinhole that you put a paper-clip into the reset. If it has its own http web page, there is likely a reset to factory defualts option.
The ip of the computer connecting to it should not change. On a computer connected to it, open cmd start>run then type in cmd, and type 'ipconfig'. It will display details about your connection. Where it says 'default gateway' is the ip of the device. You could try to put the ip in your browser and see if the device has a web page.
You will have to log in to the setting of the router. This is accomplished by typing the ip adress of the router usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into a web browser. It will then ask for a user name and password: the default user name and password for belkin routers is: User name: Admin Password: (Leave the Field blank). Then you can enable UPnP in there. UPnP stands for universal plug and play :) Hope this helps. Thanks
There is no need for drivers for your router, just connect with your browser at the router's ip adress. In case you don't know this adress do the following. Connect your computer with ethernet cable at the router and after the connection has been established, hit start - run - type cmd. At the new black window type ipconfig and hit enter. You will get the results for the ethernet connection. The ip that reffers to the "default gateway" is the ip adress for your router.

Turn off power Depress the reset button on the bottom of the router. Keep the reset button pressed and turn the power on. Release the reset button after 10 seconds. The default IP should be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 Default passwords vary, but it is usually "admin."
Be sure your laptop is on the same network as the router (192.168.1.x) X being different from the routers address. Connect via the Ethernet cable to the routers IP address. Enter the default user/password to configure.
reset your Router via pin whole at its back then set the config of TCP/4 and obtain Ip automaticaly and obtain DNS automaticaly... later set your settings according by 192.168.1.2 without changing IP and then turn off you router ... turn it on after 5 to 10 min .. thank you
This is from the Belkin Web Site: Windows 2000, XP, and Vista
1. Click Start, and then select All Programs (XP and Vista) or Programs (2000).
2. Select Accessories, and then Command Prompt (2000, XP, and Vista).
3. At the command prompt, enter: ipconfig
4. The IP address (or IPv4 address is you are using Windows Vista) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, for example, 192.168.2.2.
5. To close the command prompt, type: exit and press Enter.
First connect one of the ethernet ports (LAN) to your computer.
In windows to this:
XP: Start -> Run -> write CMD and press ok-> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1). Vista: click windowsmenu icon-> write CMD in search field and press enter -> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).
Open a webbrowser and clear det adress field, enter the adress (with the dots and no www.) you wrote down from default gateway and press enter. If you get promted for a username and password the default is: username: admin password: password (you can find it on the side of the netgaer box under deafult accsess. If you cant get in try to do a "hard reset" (push the reset button for 30 sec with a pen).
You are now in the web user interface for you netgear.
On your lefthand side, you should have a blue menu, click on the first option on the top and run the setup wizard, dont change anything (dont choose that your connection needs a password to connect) just use the default settings. Remember to press save on the botom.
You should now be ready to use your netgear router.
If this guide didnt fix your problem, i need more details to help you. Check with your new service provider if they require a username and password to connect (PPPoE).
