I have installed my belkin router but i forgot to type in a password is this necessary,if so how do i do that


Yes, your router should be password protected.

Belkin routers ship without a password, so after entering http://192.168.2.1 into your browser, click "login" in the upper right-hand corner, then just click on "submit" (leave the password box blank).

Once in the router, click on "system settings" in the left-hand margin, under "administrative password" leave the box next to "type in current password" _blank_. Then enter your new password in the next box and repeat it in the next box to confirm. Don't forget to click on "apply changes" then log out.

How do i get password for belkin router


Launch your web browser on the computer.
In the address bar, type http://192.168.2.1
Click login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit and you will be
able to login to the router.
In case you had set up an admin password and have forgotten the same, you will need to reset the router (By pressing the reset
hole with a paperclip for 10 seconds) and then login as stated above.

This will resolve the issue you are facing.

I will look forward to your feedback and positive rating.

I have switched from DSL to Cable high speed internet. How do I hook my router up for that?


You can log into your router's page ie.. 192.168.1.1 or reasonable factsimile. under connection type remove PPPOE (usually for DSL) and select DNS (Dynamic Name Sever) then accept defaults and enter any other info it might demand. log out after the router confirms that the setting has changed. Now try to make a new connection to your cable's server. Good Luck.

Set up wireless router


first confirm if your system has wireless card in it.. else you can buy one and fix it in the slot provided in the motherboard.. then set the router in the range of the system and seitch it on.. now you should configure your system's IP address(in network connections) in the range of the router's IP address... the same way the DNS server and gateway.. you can get all these even from the network administrator of your network provider...

Three different wireless cards could not connect to the wireless-G Router I need to confirm WEP and check router settings.


Plug an ethernet cable into the router and laptop, remove the wep key. See if you can connect wireless then. If not sounds like you need to manually remove the the connection from the connection properties (DONT DISABLE THE NETWORK ADAPTOR) then see if you can connect.

I'm trying to register my new router which was preset at the store. I provided my name and email address online, but can't complete registration. I eceived an email, but no confirmation number came.


I've never heard of a router being pre-set at the store and show me a quote of the email please. I've also never seen a confirmation # when registering a piece of hardware online. Confirmation #s are normally used when requesting assistance to show they are acknowledging your request for assistance and the requested assistance lies in specified range so they are serve you in order of request.

I have wireless internet. The program is working well-I called Verizon and they confirmed it-but internet explorer will not let me get on the net. I have Microsoft Vista as an operating system.


One of the problems that I ran into with Verizon was the configuration of the router.
You will want to type in the router's IP address into the windows explorer bar.
From here you can configure your router.
A setting that the tech missed on my router was actually just a simple function that turned on the connectivity within my router.
So make sure that all settings are running correctly, and that all needed functions are turned on from within the router.

I have a wireless router and it works fine, but it is unsecured. How do I set up security ?


Securing wireless is a pretty simple process.

You can access your router by opening a IE browser page, then typing the default gateway IP address on the address line. In my case, my router is a Linksys. The default gateway is 192.168.1.1

Once you type that in, you will get the login prompt for the router. In general, the default user name and password is USERNAME left blank, PASSWORD admin the reverse, or admin for both. If those don't work, check the documentation for your router.

Once you access the router from the browser, you will have an option for Wireless, and in that option to enable security.

Currently, the most popular type of encryption is WPA-TPIK
Select that oprion if available, then select a passphrase. Personally, I suggest an old phone number you recall from your youth, it is 10 digits, and hard to associate with you but easy to remeber. Once you set encryption and the passphrase, save the settings and exit the browser.

When you try to connect to the network again, you'll be prompted for the passphrase, and a confirmation. Once entered twice, then you'll connect and have a secure connection.

Other suggested security items once security is enabled:

1. Change the login and password of the router (Done in the same router setup as the security)
2. Disable the SSID broadcast once the network is configured (Don't advertise the network)

You need to go into your router settings via a web browser, possibly http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 your manual will confirm which address is correct.
If you have forgotten your passphrase you will need to set another one and then change all the computers which connect to it so they all have the same passphrase.
