Re: wireless idiot

Hi mtc3,

When connected wirelessly, bring up a command window (Start Button - Run) and type cmd. when the black box comes up, type ipconfig and it will give you your current IP address and the Gateway address.

Type the gateway address (such as, which is the IP of the router) into your Address Bar in Internet Explorer and you should be able to administer the settings right there under Wireless Security (or something similar). If you don't know the default username and password to get into the router configuration/management it should be included in the router documentation.

If you are still having issues or don't know what to do, let me know and I'll give you a tutorial.

Hi, i bought the belkin router for my wifi connection.i also connected the router to my modem and plugged it into a power witch. i got the CD along with the box and i put the CD in my laptop to set it up...

Look at your router data plate and then Google "[your router name] default user name and password". You should be able to find the defaults and use them. They should be in your manual or in the documentation/setup program on your CD also.

Can't connect with 2nd computer...

1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.

if the router is already set up the usb dongle software will need to be used to connect to the router to allow a connection without the need for a cable as the dongle will see the wireless signal
