How do i turn off my security for my belkin wifi?


Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.

I reset my belking 54 wireless router and now I want to secure it again because I had forgotten password. Help


You will have to enter the router's control panel and change the security settings. Here's how you do it:

1. Find your router's IP Address.
  • To find the IP address, 1st open Command Prompt (Start>Run>type in: cmd)
  • Next type in: ipconfig
  • After executing the command (by pressing Enter), a list appears. We want the IP Address associated with the "Default Gateway." (Picture).
  • Next open up your Web Browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc...), type in that same IP address, and visit the website (Picture). (NOTE: Do not add www. or .com! Just type in the IP Address.)
2. Visit the router's IP Address and enter the control panel.
3. Find the area pertaining to WEP or Wireless Security.
4. Enable Wireless Security, set a custom passphrase, then check to see if the same passphrase will allow you to connect to the router from a wireless computer.

I am using Belkin F5D7632ak4A. My problem is that:


Hi there,

In doing a port forwarding, you actually need to assign a manual address on the computer where you are using the service port for the computer not to change the IP address. If your private address on the network is 192.168.1.XX then you may assign on your computer 192.168.1.2-99 any of the address there. Also you may need to know the DNS you are using on the router which you can find on the status tab of the router.

To assign an IP address, if your computer is wired then right click on the wireless connection and select properties, if it is a wireless computer right click on the wireless connection and select properties.

After you have selected the said properties> look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP then select properties.

Then click on USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS and USE THE FOLLOWING DNS server as well.

then from there you can put in the set of address you have for ex.
IP address 192.168.1.10
subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.1
DNS
preferred DNS 66.28.87.105
alternate DNS 66.28.87.104

Note: these are just example. after you have done assigning an IP address then you may do the port forwarding again. change the IP address on the port forwarding tab to the IP address you have assigned. Then don't forget to save the settings.

Configuration of Belkin Wireless Router F5D6231


Whoops, found it. http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/f5d6231-4_manual.pdf

If I were setting this up for myself or a customer, I'd keep the Airtel IP's and let it be the DHCP server. To do this, you pick a fixed IP address for the Belkin, something like 192.168.1.251. Log into the Belkin and change the LAN IP address to that and turn off DHCP. Those instructions start on pdf page 34.

Now, plug one of the 4 ports into the Airtel, and from a computer connected to the network type in 192.168.1.251 in Internet Explorer. It should get you to the Belkin where you finish setting it up for wireless security and password from page 38.

You won't use the WAN port.

Opening the NAT connection for Xbox 360 working through 2 routers


  1. How do you connect your Linksys router to Belkin router? Do you connect your Linksys router to the Internet/WAN port of the Belkin?
  2. If so, what is the Internet connection type set in your Belkin router? Is it dynamic?
  3. If the Belkin router is set to dynamic IP and if it is obtaining an IP address from your Linksys router(you may check the status page of your Belkin router and look for IP address), then you may need to forward or set that IP address as the DMZ to your Linksys router. Make sure that XBOX is still configured as the DMZ host in your Belkin
Hope this helps!

Getting secure


maybe your router is not using the 192.168.2.1 ip address anymore. the only way to enable the security is to access the router's page but if you want you can run the installation cd again since it'll ask you if you want to secure your network but you need reinstall everything just like you installed it out of the box.
or you can just check the ip address of your router.

here are the steps

- use a hardwired computer and access the command prompt (for windows computers, click on start, then click on run, then type cmd)
- it'll prompt you now with a black screen, on the blinking cursor, type ipconfig/all
- take note of the default gateway address that's the ip address being used by your router
- enter the default gateway's address on address bar of your browser and it shoould prompt you for the username and password, enter the username and password of your router
- it'll prompt you now with the roouter's page, click on the wireless part and set up your security

hope this'll help you

ciao!
