You should be able to download software for router at http://www.belkin.com/uk/support/

Not sure why you need software to make a secure connection though. If you type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar this will take you to 'set up home'. This is where you can change security settings. If you have never put an initial password on to access the site then when it asks you for one just leave it blank. If you are thinking about putting WPA security on (most secure) then check that your PCI card will actually support it. Otherwise you will have to set up WEP security.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.

  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

Hi. This is a problem with wireless connrctions.
You need to turn on security on your router, and assign a security level and password.

Here is the link to the Belkin website with the instructions on setting up security on your Router.

Dana on the PC that can connect to internet open the start menu and see if there is netwirk button to klick on. If so click it and see if it shows your Belkin Router icon if it does right click the icon and you should see a option to go to the router web page witch should look something like this.

See first pic below.
Find the security section on left side and go there. Should look something like second pic below. You will see the security key no in the password slot.
You can also get to the routers web page by typing its ip adress in the internet browser if you know your PC's ip adress (example 178.162.5.9) the routers ip will be the same but use a 1 where the 9 is. Hope I helped you good luck.4a682e3.jpgcae57f2.jpg
