It sounds like perhaps you have been hijacked or have a virus or some sort of spyware/adware. Using a wireless router shouldn't mean that you'll be bombarded with popups, but be sure you have your firewall running and security enabled on the router, just to be safe.

That said, try running a virus scan with whatever anti-virus you have installed. If you don't have anything, use TrendMicro's HouseCall ( That I believe also will, or will give the option to, check for adware/spyware. If it doesn't, or if it doesn't find anything, try downloading a program like Spybot Search & Destroy (a personal favorite). You can download it here. Run a scan with Spybot and delete anything that it finds. Make sure you've set up Backups in the Spybot options first, and take a system screen shot via System Restore before you do anything.

If you need additional help, please let me know. Hopefully this helps though!

Good luck!

I got a pop up saying that the password for my wireless router needed to be changed. I must have changed it but I don't remember the new password and now I have no connection unless I have my laptop...

Follow the printed (and online) instructions to do a "factory-reset" of the router.
This will reload the default ID/password, and you'll need to configure both the "wired" and the "wireless" settings.

Note that it could have been a computer-virus that created that "pop-up" window!

There is no internet working with the Belkin G wireless Router

How do you have your connection set up? Normally, your modem connects to the router, and router to computers, this is how yours is set up? Since your router is wireless-capable, just make sure that your laptop has its wireless turned on and you have the router's "Wireless" set up, name (SSID) is done, security method chosen. I like WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity, keeping in mind that all logins to your network will need this passcode as well.

Enabling upnp

You need to access the router's setup page. The default IP address of Belkin router is Launch IE and type on the address field. It doesn't need a username/password by default. So when a windown pop up asking for one just leave the fields blank and click ok.

Once you're in the setup page, you may now be able to configure the router with the settings you need.

Hope this helps!

Belkin Router keeps frezing.

Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).
