Question about Belkin (F5D6230-3) Wireless Router

MAC Address Filtering

Hi.
I´m trying to set up my Belkin Wireless Router´s MAC Address Filter. However, something keeps me from entering my laptop client´s full MAC address in the corresponding field. I see the full address consists of six pairs of two characters each, separated by a colon. However, I can progress only as far as the first four groups. Is it sufficient, or is it necessary to make some other adjustment to have the utility accept all the characters? Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

H rampart,

Leave out the ":" (colons). The Belkin don't need them, to know the sequence of the numbers,

Good Luck,

    Glad to help, Rampart! That is a nice router! Don't forget to change the default password and set up the other security! The bad guys are everywhere! Have a great day!

My ipod could not connect to the internet


Hi suzettemaica,

I see that you are having issue connecting your iPod to your Wireless Network.

I believe that your Wireless Network has a Network key or a Password on it for your security right, to be able to get your iPod conencted wirelessly you will need to disable the Wireless security because mobile phone do not have same security that a Wireless Router would have once you have disabled the Wireless Security of your Router then you can connect your iPod.

To get security on your Wireless you will need to enable the MAC Address filtering, this will be an alternative to a wireless security on Routers.

You mentioned you have a Belkin wireless Router, you did not mention what model but that is OK, I will try to give details as simple as I can for the wireless issue and the MAC Address Filtering.

Click on this Link this will give you a basic on the Router settings, but first we will need to find out what your Router's Default Gateway is.

To find out your Router Default Gateway you can click on start then type CMD on the white bar and type in CMD right click on it then select run as administrator.

This should open a new window DOS to be exact, you will see C:\ with a blinking cursor and most probably you computer name after C:\ then type in ipconfig then press enter , a list should show look for default gateway .

Once you have your default gateway open up IE or any Browser that you have and type the Default gateway on the Address Bar then press enter this should Open a page of you Routers Settings.

now you can click on this Link to see what you see from your router or you can just basically use what you have from your router which is exactly where your settings will be. Link

Oh yeah for your Router I am not sure if it has a user name or a password since I did not get what Model you have, but you can try to leave the user name blank and the password blanks as well to get in which is a default with Belkin.

Look for Wireless then under should be security click on security then you will see security mode and a drop down select None to disable the password on the Router then click Apply Changes.

Now for the MAC Address you should see Filtering then below is Mac Address just click on it then it will be asking Mac Addresses of all the devices that you need to connect on the Wireless network to be able to register them in the Router for access to the Internet the Mac Address can also be found by goin into DOS and doing the IPCONFIG for you iPod you can just connect to the router with out the Mac Address filtering first then go in the Router settings you should see the Mac Address of the devices connected to the Belkin Router.


I hope that i was clear enough for this.

Have a nice day,

mvincentc

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

Is there any other computer connected to the network and able to go online.
If yes then check the wireless settings of the router.
If the laptop is the only 1 computer then you will need to connect the laptop to the router and open the router set up page and check the wireless settings.

To secure your wireless network and prevent unauthorized access you need to setup your wireless router with these settings :-
When you first setup your wireless router you should change the login password and then the wireless configuration, setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card in your computer is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the wireless router.
Also if your router has a firewall then you should enable this feature.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.

I'm trying to set up a new laptop to my belkin router


When you first setup a wireless router you need to connect the wireless router to the computer with a LAN cable.
Then you open a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and on the address bar you type the IP configuration address of the wireless router eg. for Belkin wireless router it is http://192.168.2.1
Enter the default login name and password.
You should change the password and you should setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
