I have a belkin F5D7230-4 model i recently tried to reconfigure the router and inadvertently press the wrong command button, i cant remember what button it was but since then, when i try to access the router the browser tells me the connection was refused, or the connection times out. I have tried to reinstall the router but when the setup disc searches for the router connection, it cannot be found. Oddly my computer can still receive an internet connection through the router but my x-box 360 cannot, the x-box is the reason i bought the router

Re: router cant b found
Locate the reset button on the rear of the router.
Should be below the antenna and recessed use a paper clip or similar to hold in for 10 secs.
This will reset the router back to factory defaults.
Type in 192.168.2.1 into your browser and you should get the routers setup page. Click the login button, no password is required. You can set this up yourself once in the router setup.
Be aware this router is NOT on the Xbox live supported list.

If you have forgotten the password, reset the Belkin by pushing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds or so and release, this will reset to default settings. Connect and reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. You may want to write down the password and store for future use. Belkin Support: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?rnId=6939
if you can no longer connect to your router, the only thing to regain access to it and reconfigure is to manually reset it to default settings. To do this, you need to press the reset button/switch (or some models have dip pins hidden in a small hole) for 30 seconds while the router is turned ON. After 30 seconds, release the button and all your previous and faulty settings will be removed. Follow the documentation packed with your router for the default user name / password to access your router's admin page.
What have you tried so far? 1. You can unplug the power cord of your modem on the back of the modem. 2. Unplug the power cord on the back of your router 3. Unplug the ethernet cable at the back of your modem 4. Unplug all the ethernet cable at the back of your router 5. Wait for 2 minutes then plug the power cord back into your modem and the ethernet cable 6. Wait for 2 minutes again then plug the power cord back into your router and the ethernet cable 7. Try to reconnect (Note: Resetting your router will restore to factory default) 8. If not successful, try resetting the router. While the power cord is plugged at the back of your router press the reset button for 15 seconds, unplug the power cord of your router and press the reset button again for 15 seconds then plug the power cord back into your router and press the reset button for 15 seconds. (after resetting reconfigure your router) Try to connect.
Press and hold the reset button for five seconds, then release. When the Power/Ready light becomes steady again, the reset is complete. This will reset your router to the default password, which is no password (empty). It will also erase your router configuration, so you will have to reconfigure the router.

The Belkin Router does not come with a factory set password or
username. I phoned Belkins's 800 number today and found it out. They
told me to reset the router by using a paper clip and holding down the
button for ten seconds or so.
You can try password - Admin ( usually works on old models ). Make sure to keep User name Blank.
