How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router 1. Step 1
Position your Belkin wireless G router.

Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

5. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

How to Change Security Settings on Belkin Wireless Router

Feb 11, 2015 | Belkin Computers & Internet

Tip

Wireless Part Configuration of Belkin routers without CD


Wireless Part Configuration:
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1
  • Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.
Step 1: Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
In the Belkin router Setup page, on your left hand side, you may have Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) below WIRELESS. If you have WPS then click on it. If it prompts you for a login password, leave it blank and Click on Submit.WPS will be Enabled by default. Change it to Disabled and Click on Apply Changes. It may or may not take some time to save the Information and brings you back to the same page.

Step 2: Security
Select Security found on left side of router setup page.Security mode will have the following options,
  • WPA / WPA2 (PSK)
  • 64-bit WEP
  • 128-bit WEP
  • Disabled
Usage of above security modes for various devices:
  • WPA / WPA2 (PSK) ------for vista & windows7 computers
  • 64-bit WEP -------for windows XP, MAC, XBOX, Play Stations, Ipods, Ipads (recommended)
  • 128-bit WEP ------same as 64bitwep, but not recommended
  • Disabled------to disable the wireless security
Disabled: If you think there is no need for security for your Wireless network or if you are willing to make it as a hot-spot then you can select the option as Disabled and Click on Apply Changes.

WPA/WPA2: If you are selecting the Security type as WPA/WPA2 then you will be able to see the pre-shared key (PSK) or passphrase (PSK), in this box you need to type at-least 8 characters as the network password.After typing the password you can verify the password by un-checking obscure PSK. Password is case sensitive. Once you are done check obscure PSK and Click on Apply Changes.

64bitWEP: If you are selecting the Security type as 64bitWEP then you will be able to see the Key 1 with 5 empty boxes. You need to type 2 numbers in each boxes of Key 1. You can also use letters A-F along with numbers 0-9 to make your password more secure. Password is case sensitive. After filling those details click on Apply Changes directly. You must not type anything in Passphrase and click on generate. If you do so, it will generate a password automatically.The 10digit value which you entered in key 1 is the password for your wireless network.You need to enter the same password without any spaces in between in your computer to get connected to your wireless network.

128bitWEP: If you are selecting 128bit WEP, then you need to follow the same instructions as above but you need to enter 26characters in 13 empty boxes.

Step 3: Channel and SSID:
  • Once you are done with that, select Channel and SSID found on the left side of RSP.
  • Change the Wireless Channel to 1 or 6 or 11 (these are the best non- overlapping channels for wireless networks).
  • Change the SSID to any name as you wish, this will be your wireless network name (I recommend you to use a single word of any length. It can have letters, numbers or combination of both).
  • Check whether the option Broadcast SSID is checked / enabled (it must be enabled).
  • Once you are done click on Apply Changes.
Now the Router is configured for wireless devices.

Connecting your wireless computer to the wireless network:Make sure the wireless switch is turn on in the laptop, now look for the available wireless Networks in range, select your network name, enter the security key and get connected.

Sir



Please proceed with the instructions below.



Step 1:

Enable the Wi-Fi feature of your mobile device. Look for the wireless network name (SSID) of the WeMo Light Switch which will be WeMo.Light.xxx and tap it to connect your device.



QUICK TIP: If you have multiple WeMo devices, connect to the one with the same WeMo ID at the back of the device. The WeMo ID is the word WeMo followed by WeMo model,and then three (3) alphanumeric characters.



NOTE: To know how to enable the Wi-Fi feature of your mobile device, refer to your device\'s manual.

Wait until you are connected to the WeMo Light Switch network. A successful connection is indicated with check mark beside the WeMo Light Switch (SSID).

Step 2:

Launch the 7c714365-1d70-4873-b4f9-e5ddfff23375.pngApp.



Step 3:

Tap the wireless network name (SSID) of your router and enter the password when required.



NOTE: WeMo can only connect to your 2.4 GHz network.







abc8a218-5d1f-4af5-b7bf-449cecd35af3.png



Wait while the WeMo App attempts to connect. If the WeMo encounters difficulty connecting to the Wi-Fi network, try refreshing your mobile device\'s Wi-Fi and try connecting again. For more troubleshooting instructions,Click Hear,



79136848-3c85-4123-b96d-36739fdf5aa7.png



The Remote Access Enabled message will then pop up. By default, the Remote Access feature is enabled.



668a46ea-8dbe-40f2-8c0a-65f0269addaa.png



Step 4:

When the WeMo Light Switch setup is completed, tap Done after viewing the information of the device.



QUICK TIP: You can customize the Name, Device Icon, and Email of your WeMo Light Switch. It is recommended to enable the Remember Wi-Fi Settings option so the WeMo App will automatically connect to your wireless network once it is in range.





9156e7f7-e2af-4253-ba6a-19087a90f382.png



The WeMo App will then refresh, look for devices and automatically detect your WeMo Light Switch.

d36f2957-0c19-43ce-8e18-e84915f4fa31.png



You should now have installed the WeMo Light Switch with the WeMo App.



With the WeMo App, you can create different rules for your WeMo Light Switch.

I need to reset my router password.


You will need to log into your router with the IP Address, userid and password, then you can change the router password.

You do realize that the Router Password just lets you get into the router to make changes to it.

The Wireless Password is what allows people to connect their wireless devices or laptops to the internet via the router. If you need to change the wireless password then once you get into the router go to the wireless tab or wireless security and change it.

The manual will give you the router's IP address, default userid and password. Also it might be on a sticker on the side or bottom of the router. The wireless password or network key might be on it also.

If you need the manual go to Belkin's website.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Belkin Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals throughout the site.



Below is a direct link to their site where you just plug in your model number.

Setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I


You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.

Cant rember password


Your wireless router is prompting you for a password in order to log onto your network. If you do not remember your password, you can reset the routers' configuration by holding down the reset button on the back of the router, and you can then use the default user name and password to change the settings. HOWEVER, you will lose all of your network settings so if you have multiple devices connected via wireless,they will also have to be reset.

If you need help re-configuring your router, visit the router manufacturer's web page. There should be a tutorial to walk you through the process.
