Hi there,

this is the general support page for your router. Look into the "How to" section under "Configuring Wireless Security" - it has a pretty good write-up on how to do it.

You access the router’s Web-Based User interface by typing “192.168.2.1” in the URL bar of your web browser (do not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then press the “Enter” key.
The router ships by default with no password. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the “Submit” button to log in, but I hope you have changed that and setup a password...;-)

For details look into the manual (if you don't have one, get it here). On page 24 you see a screenshot of the router's main page. Look for the "Security" link under "Wireless" in the left pane.

Page 45-52 of the manual explains the setup in detail and also has screenshots from the setup page.

I personally can only advise not to use WEP but WPA (ideally WPA2) for security reasons. Some XP clients need to have Service Pack 2 (Win XP SP2) installed in order to handle the encryption process.

Don't forget to choose a strong password. The way I do it is to create a strong (!) passphrase like "V0y6Mmb90y...", copy it into a text document (use notepad), and save it on a USB stick. From there you can copy it to the other computer(s) into the "Network key required" field, when Windows (or Mac) asks for the network key.
No typos = no headaches.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Well first if its close connect the ethernet cable to the new pc and the router if its farther away use a wireless adapter they sell them at radioshack for $79.99 then on the 1st computer go to the routers code in the address bar and if you have changed your password from the default type it in, if not it should be Admin pass: admin then go to security settings and look for the acess panel. type in the new computers ip adress and select allow. that should work. hope this helps
~good luck

My internet is greatly reduced with Belkin N1 vision wireless (before the hook-up it was 15mbps now only 5mbps), I have tested by hooking directly from the modem to the computer and got 15mbps. Before N1,...


When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.

I have a modem hooked up to one computer in my room, but my mom wants internet on her computer in her room, so I went to WalMart and they gave me this and told me it would work. However I really doubted...


Hi,

You have mentioned that you have a modem connected to one computer already, if you want to access another computer from a different computer through a wireless adapter then you need a wireless router or access point to transmit the wireless signal, because the Belkin N150 Wireless USB adapter which you have bought is just a "receiver".

If you have router already connected to your modem then please give the brand name of the router you have

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

We have a belkin.49ed router and hooked it up. It


The wireless security of the Belkin must have been enabled. Use a computer wired to the router to access the setup page and get the network key.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

Once on the setup page of the router, go to Wireless -> Security. You will see the network key here.
On your laptop, view the available wireless networks and you should see your wireless network name or SSID, then when you click connect you have to enter the network key.

I hope this helps!

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.

Hooking up to docking station


No, the laptop will have to have a wireless adaptor on it or in it to connect. The docking station is only good when the computer is hooked into it.
