You can directly connect your computer to the router thorugh the routers "internet" port and then re-run setup. OR you can type the IP address of the router into your address bar (the default is tipically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and then enter the router username and password (I believe the Belkin default is username:"Admin" password:"Password") in the admin control planel look for a "wireless security" tab. You can then define your wirelss security settings there. Just remember to configre the same settings on all devices that will connect to the router.

SOURCE: network security

Once you've logged into the router (open your browser, and type ONLY this into the Address line, without the quotes: "192.168.2.1). You should get a log in pop-up, "admin" is the username, and the password is left blank (or is sometimes "password"), again without the quotes.

Once logged in, you have a series of menus on the left hand side, Usually large blue lines demark each section, i.e. "Lan Setup", "Internet WAN", and of course the section you are looking for "Wireless". Under each header is listed each of the pages available for that function. For example, under Wireless you'd want the first 2 items: "Channel and SSID" - this is where you set the name of the wireless network; and "Security", which is where you setup whichever one of the Encryption options you want. This Encryption key is the password you will use when connecting wirelessly to the router from a PC.

Hopefully that is enough to get you setup.

SOURCE: How do I security enable my Belkin router?

Hi there,
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT use a wireless connection, use a cable.
Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.

Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you. Example (0102030405060708090a0b0c)
Apply the settings.
Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Remember to set an admin password before you close down, other vice anyone can access you router and change the setup and admin password.
/regards
Teis

SOURCE: Attempted to set up wireless security - lost all wireless

Sure the reset button will fix this, because it will reset the router tofactory defaults and erase all personal settings.

The better and easier way is to connect one of your clients/computers to the router via an Ethernet cable, login to your router (The default is http://192.168.2.1), go back to your wireless settings and either write down the key or delete it.

Now connect from another computer and provide the network key when asked for it. Make sure that broadcasting the SSID is enabled in your router, so computers can "see" the network. (Look at page 47 of your manual for details.)

If you don't have a manual, you can download it here.

If you have any more questions or need assistance with any of these steps, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

SOURCE: How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router

You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

  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.

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.

This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

I have a belkin wireless adaptor, but a D-Link router, how do i link them!?!?????


You need to know the wireless settings on the Dlink router first. To check the wireless settings, you need to use a wired computer to the router.

Then in the address bar of a web browser (Internet explorer or firefox), type 192.168.0.1.

By default, the user name is Admin and leave the password empty.

Go to Wireless Settings. Take note of the following:

1. Enable wireless should be checked.
2. Take note of the wireless network name. You may change this into a unique name so that you can easily determine your own wireless network.
3. Visibility status should be Visible.
4. Under Wireless security mode, it depends on you if you would like to enable it or not. If you would like to enable the security, just select WEP. Then enter the WEP Key 1. This is like a password for your wireless network, use letters from A-F and numbers from 0-9.

Then click Save Settings.

Once the belkin wireless adapter is installed properly on your computer, there are 2 ways to connect to your wireless network.

Either you use the Belkin WLAN monitor or the Wireless network connection (for Windows OS). When you view the available networks or Site survey, you will see the wireless network name on your router. It will prompt you for a network key if wireless security is enabled.

Make sure you enter the WEP key 1 in your router. This is case sensitive.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

I have a belkin router set up in my home and I just purchased a 2nd laptop but I am unsure how to add this new laptp to the connector


If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
