Is there a default password for belkin routers? My roommate has the router in his room and out of the country and I need internet. Is there a way I cam access the guest belkin with a default password?


Hi, Why not contact your room mate and get the password from him? In the meantime, if you are looking for access to the Internet for free, most Council Libraries offer internet access at no charge to card holders.

How do you set a passwood so nobody get in


You need to encrypt your wireless router to protect your Internet access fro unauthorized access.
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.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

Make sure your router's wireless is not being used by outsiders. Is your Belkin secure enough with a WPA or WEP key? If not, then it is shared and could be used by anyone that can detect your wireless. If it is secured, they you can just reset your router by holding the reset button for 8 to 10 seconds until the lights restarts. This will make the router reset to factory defaults. After this, you can assign a new password for the router for security.

Hope this helps. THank you for using FIxYa.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Click the Wireless tab.
- SSID: This is the wireless network name of your router. You can change it so that you may easily identify your own wireless network.
- Wireless channel: no need to change it, just take note of which wireless channel your router has.
- Wireless mode: Make sure it is not off. Select the wireless mode that your wireless computer has.
- Broadcast SSID should be checked so that the wireless computer will detect the signal from the router.
Take note: If you made changes on your router make sure you click Apply changes to save the changes.

4. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

5. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
