Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
Want to keep connection secure
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.

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.
