Use the instructions here:

This will reset to the factory default and use admin for the user and the password will be blank.

The "default" user & password:

Username: admin
Password: (doesn't have a password - leave it blank)

If you changed the password at some point, the above may give you a clue...

If not, then:
You can reset the router but you will lose the configuration.
If that is ok, then:
1. straighhten a paperclip to make a pointy stylus.
2. locate the reset "hole" on the router
3. with the router powered ON, insert the stylus into the reset hole
4. continue pressing for 15 seconds or until the router lights start flashing to indicate that it is reset to factory specs.
5. Wait for it to power up completely (1 minute).
6. Use "admin" as the username and there is no password...

Hope this hleps!

There is normally a reset switch on them which when pressed brings the whole router to factory default.Then from there you can log into the router settings and create an encryption and a new password.

SOURCE: Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router I cannot connect to Tiscali HELP

I had this with Bt Internet and this exact same router, you have to phone Belkin up and they give you a complete set of new settings that you manually have to put in during setup. If i remember rightly its a free phone number and the operator who answered spoke semi-english so not all bad, hope this helps.

SOURCE: belkin wireless router reset password problems

You have to connect(wired) through one of the ports on the back of belkin to a laptop(or PC) physically.And this laptop(orPC) should have the software that came in the CD as part of the router packaging.
Then you open the web browser and and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.This should let you access the router from where you can configure your settings..Network name,password,password for the router itself etc.

SOURCE: setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I

You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

Hi confused girl.

May I recommend you use Network Magic to unravel your delima. Free to download and evaluate, NM will assist you with connectivity issues, security and device sharing.

If you still have trouble because of the password, you can do a hard reset. Find the little hole on the device and insert a paper clip. Gently depress and hold the button for 30 seconds or more. No hole? Well there has to be a way to hard reset the device. Check here: http://www.zyxel.com/ select your country and select support for your device.

My belkin G+ wireless router model: F5D9231-4 v2 security is lock and i cant log into my laptop


If you have forgotten the password, reset the Belkin by pushing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds or so and release, this will reset to default settings. Connect and reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. You may want to write down the password and store for future use. Belkin Support: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?rnId=6939

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

You will be able to access your set-up page, look for wireless tab and look for wireless security. You will see there your WEP key.
