look for a reset botton usually located at the back of the unit (you may neet to push through a hole. keep the item pressed for 30 secs while the unit is plugged in. that should reset your router to defaults.

once reset go in to the configuration page and set your security, ssid and encryption making sure you choose a password that you will remember and set the same encrption method on the laptops you are trying to hook up to your access point (router).

good luck!

How to reconnect HP Chromebook to internet thru desk computer and router.


The Chromebook has a wireless network interface.
So, it does not connect to your computer.
Instead, it connects to your wireless router.
If you do not remember that password for your wireless network,
you need to "reset" your router to its "factory-settings", and then recreate the name of your wireless network, and enter a new password, to define it.

Change password new wireless


If you connect to the router with network cable through one of the LAN ports you should be able to reset the wireless password.

Alternately if you know the factory default or if the factory default is on the router itself then there should be a reset button that if you hold down for a few seconds will reset the password to the default.

Otherwise if the router has a WPS button or similar then you maybe able to connect using that feature without the password.

Add a password


The router's encryption (password) is configured in the router's wireless settings.
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. 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

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Got the router without instructions. How do I set it up to work with my lab top and desk top?


first thing you need to know is the default ip/password is 192.168.1.1 with the password being "admin" that will get you into the router im assuming your going wired to the desktop and wireless for the laptop, so first you'll need to hook the router up to the desktop using a cat5 wire from your network card to one of the numbered ports on the back of the router, ok now that you have a connection to the router open up a web browser and in the address bar type in 192.168.1.1, no user name and a password = admin, once your in there click under the wireless settings and enable the wireless network, change the ssid to something you like and can remember, then under the wireless security tab enable the wpa2 security encryption personal works fine then enter a nice password that you can remeber but isnt too easy to guesse, once you have that set up use the laptop to see if you can now see your new network and once you can try and connect to it using the password you just made up, now then if your going wireless all the way your still going to have to wire your desktop to the router for these initial steps once the changes are made then if you have a wireless card for your desktop then you can disconnect the wire and use your wireless card to find the new network and connect to it :) hope this is helpfull
