Setting up a Wireless Connection

I have a Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router that a friend gave to me. He set up my husband's laptop on it, but I don't know how to set up my laptop. My friend doesn't remember the password he used. I am working with a Powerbook G4 running system 10.3.

If he forgot the password for the router, that isn't a problem. On the router is a reset switch on it. Hit the switch, it will go to default setting. and it is usually Username: admin Password: password. Then on your powerbook G4 you need to see what your wireless ethernet card, has a mac address, you need to add that into your router setting.

Let me know how it goes.

Did you configure the wireless router, to set an SSID ("network name") and encryption-level ('WPA') and password?

Are the correct device-drivers loaded for the wireless adapter inside the laptop?

Does the laptop have a switch/slider to disable/enable the wireless adapter?

Does the laptop connect to "free WifI' at Starbucks or MacDonalds?

Can a friend's laptop make a wireless connection to your Belkin's wireless network?

I have a wireless printer and it won't connect. I tried text sopport for the printer and was told that the router needs to be insinck to the mac address . I would like to know if you could tell me how to...


Setting up wireless printers can be such a hassle!
The quickest solution is to let the router sync the mac address itself, don't worry about the details of it all. Easiest way is to start wired, before you go wireless.
When setting up the printer to work with that wireless router, hook your printer up directly to the router/computer the router is connected to. This will allow for the printer/router to recognize each other and establish a connection. Then, when you use a wireless connection (wireless on laptop/ on printer also), they will recognize each other and you'll be able to connect.
This is much less of a hassle than trying to set up wirelessly.
Best of luck!

Wireless connection to belkin g router model no. f5d7230-4


You need to access the setup page of the router using connected computer.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

Take note of the SSID. This is the name of your wireless connection.

Then go to Security under Wireless. Copy the network key.

On your friend's laptop, view the available wireless networks, you should see the SSID, then just enter the network key.

I hope this helps!

A friend gave me his router to instal to my


You should do a factory reset using the reset button on the back using a paperclip.

Then you should insert the cd that your friend should also have given you (he didnt Hmm) if not you open an internet explorer page while hooked up (by wire) to the router and type into the address bar 192.168.1.1 on most netgear


The username is admin
and the password is 1234

From there you can use the setting your ISP gives you and also set wireless up.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet


Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
