Re: belkin n1 wireless router no security!!
Check ip address of your pc. Go to DOS Prompt, type ipconfig then click enter. Look for DEFAULT GATEWAY(that will be your router ip address). Open your browser and type the default gateway on the address field(example: 192.168.1.1). That will take you to your router page. You can set up security there.

Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password. You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
You will need to double-check your security settings. Apparently, the modem is trying to tell you there's a problem regarding this.
The easiest way to be able to access the router settings in this case, will be to provide a direct connection between your PC and the Belkin router (using a network cable) and then type in that address. If the address still doesn't work, double check the router's IP address by opening the Command Prompt (it's under Programs -> Accessories) and typing in "ipconfig", then hitting Enter. The IP-address you're looking for is listed under "default gateway". (Also, make sure your computer isn't using a fixed IP, set it up so it's dynamically assigned an address by the Belkin router.)
well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.
There's a big possibility that the security key that you're using is not correct that's why its not working and when you set the security to disable its working and doesn't have anything to do with your ISP better call belkin for that so they can give you the correct way to connect to a secured network.
You need to setup security through the web browser interface. You can connect to the web based interface by pointing your browser to the IP address of the router. U will be asked for a username and password after which there is a security tab where in you can set WEP/WPA encryption and password, etc.
A couple of things:
1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)?
2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?;
3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0?
4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port?
Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.
