    I was finally able to address the router and get to the encryption methods.  However, when I selected WEP64 and then entered a password, I was unable to log in to the network with my laptop, even thought I entered the correct password.  Obviously I am still doing something wrong.

Setting up your wireless network to encrypt the data so intruders can't see it involves choosing from several methods. Take a look at pages 49-55 of this on-line manual (link below). It will give you more information than you ever wanted to know about choosing an encryption method and entering the "keys" on your router. If you find this terribly confusing, just choose either WEP64 or WEP128 and ignore the other sections. There are specific notes for MAC users on pages 53 and 55. Hope this helps!

    The computer will also need to have its wireless interface configured with WEP...using the same encryption key you used on the router. This is what prevents others from accessing your network....they will not know your encryption key.

    Be careful not to confuse a login password with an encryption key. Encryption keys tell the wireless hardware how to scramble your radio signals in a unique way so no one else can make sense of them. A login password simply controls who has access to your computer...or router...etc.

    If you have trouble configuring the computer to use the same wireless WEP encryption key as the router...it may be necessary to turn off WEP on the router in order to restore wireless operation.

Mac laptops can't access an open (no security set) Belkin Router


A "locked" wireless means the router is encrypting packets of information as it sends/receives. You would need to enter the 64-bit or 128-bit key which was created by the router when you configured the passphrase to use.

Chanched NAT and got locked out.


Once you have logged into your router, enable the DMZ feature and put in the IP address of your 360.

This will put your 360 outside of the routers firewall and it will give you a full open connection to XBox Live.

My router is now locked and i didn't have it locked how do I unlock it


there is no lock down on belkin router.
do you have router portected? if not, some one lock your router.
the best ting to do is reset it to factory default. and start all over again.
to that :
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will restore the router to factory default. Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This should show the router status page with the default settings.
