Belkin54g default gateway problems and connecting to router page
I recently decided to change my ip adress myself...bad call, i went into the web default ip 192.168.1.2 to change it manually in the belkin interface....i then changed to the ip adress i wanted ....didint do anything to the mask....and changed the setting to off on the DNs...then it gave me a warning about something i didint read it much just skimmed over it....something about new or whatever.....then i went and my internet connection wasnt working well it was but it was on limited connectivity or local...so i went to retype the 192.168.1.2 and the default gateway didnt show up so i could go back and fix this and i also tried my new ip i entered....can someone tell me how to get back to that page so i can correct it back. i did the following... 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 the subnet 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)
but as i went to press close to comfirm these setting everytime...i get a mesaage saying that the default gateway isnt on the same subnet as the mask or ip or something like that...i have figured out how to get it from limited connectivity...to local only....and i know fromt here i can somehow acces the belkin router page...but i keep trying an tryin different ways and istill cant get back on the page...to recorrect my mistake.

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

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.
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.

connect your computer to one of the LAN(wired) ports of router...
check the ip address and default gateway of your local area connection
through control panel > network connections.... if you get the ip
adress in the range of dlink router then try going to start > run
> type "cmd" and hit enter >command prompt will appear... in
command prompt type this
start iexplore(default gateway address) and hit enter...you will see the settings page of your modem.... go ahead and disable firewall and enable dmz for your ip address... also forward the ports that are necessary for your gaming device...
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)
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).
First you must make sure that the Ip address 192.168.2.1 is your routers ip address.
Click on Start, Run, type cmd, then click OK. Type ipconfig /all and hit the enter key. You are looking for the Default Gateway address. Use that address in your web browser. When you set up your static Ip address on your computer, use the first three numbers of your default gateway's address, then for the fourth number, add one. For example. If your default gateway address is 192.168.2.1, then your static ip address should be 192.168.2.2.
You probably need to goto your routers web page and change the name there.
While you are there it is a good idea to setup at least WEP security if you have not done so already.
To get there, usually, while you are connected, you can look at the properties of your connection, and get your default gateway's IP address.
In a web browser, put this IP number of your default gateway into the browser's address bar and click go. It should load your router's administration web page. If it has a password and you dont know what that is then it is probably the default password.
To get the default password for your router, into Google search for example if you has a linksys router, search Google for "linksys default password" this should bring up the default password for a linksys router. usually a combination of "admin/password".
Once logged into the administration web page, the network name is listed under "SSID".
