  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.

I have a belkin F5D8233-4V3. I never had it secured before. Then I made my old pc wireless and it hooked up to my b elkin and it works fine. Trouble is now it appears to be secured and I cant access it...


The security settings ie. encryption is configured in the Belkin wireless settings. You then configured your old wireless card in you computer with these settings so it can connect to the Belkin.
I suggest you also apply these same settings to the wireless cards in your laptops.
To make your wireless network secure from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I want to make my broadband secured.


The model that you have listed is not a wireless router, so if it isn't, the only way people could be connecting is if they are physically connected to your router. If you do have a wireless router, please list the correct the model number.

Connecting to secure network


when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
