I have a wireless Belkin N router and I have no idea how to hook it up without install CD. I have used it before but I want to wipe it clean and start over. I have an iMac just bought.


To reset the Belkin back to the defaultsettings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and thenpower for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open abrowser 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 withthe 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

Unable to connect to my secure wireless router


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.

I have bought an Apple Mac notebook but am having problems accessing the internet. I think I have inadvertently changed the password to the wireless router as I have succesfully conected my main computer...


This is a confusing report. If you are successfully connecting two other computers to the router using the original router password, why can't you connect your MacBook Pro to the router using the same password? Or is it that the other two computers "know" the original password but you don't?
If one of the other two computers is a Mac, use the Keychain Access utility to look up the stored password for the router.
If not, use one of the other two computers to access the router's configuration screens directly and obtain the password that way.

SSID Password


Hi...I am not sure if you need the SSID or the network key? The SSID is the network name, the one you see displayed in 'Available wireless networks'. The network key (also called passphrase, authentication key, PSK etc) is the one Windows asks for to connect to a secure network.

If you need the network key/passphrase:

1. Login to your router, by typing http://192.168.1.1 into a web browser (or whichever IP address is correct for your router).

2. You should see a popup box, requesting your username and password. If you have not changed these, they are username: admin and password: admin - otherwise please enter the username and password you have set.

3.If successful, you should now see your router user interface.
Go to Advanced > Wireless Security. If you are using WPA encryption, the network key (password) you need should be displayed under PSK string.
(Details taken from Dynamode UK website).

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if you need further help.
