Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
Everything was set up and going good with the wireless router. Then someone else came in with a laptop and typed in the security code to get wireless in the house...then the original laptop in the house was not able to connect to the internet at all but the second laptop that connected in WAS able to get wireless here. What is the problem and how can it be fixed??
The Problem is this :: "Wifi protected setup on the router is Enabled "
Connect Router - Computer (Wired)
Open router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of your web browser (Internet Explorer)
On the left under wireless Click Wi - Fi Protected Setup (WPS)
leave the password Blank And click Submit
Disable it and click apply changes
On the left under wireless click security
Select the Security mode as WPA
Type the password that you want in the blank box for pre shared key (PSK)
Click Apply changes
On the left under wireless click channel and SSID
Change the channel to 6 , Change the SSID to a different name ( Make sure it is not the name that you used before)
Click apply changes
Unplug the Power cord from the router
Restart the computer
Plug the Power Cord back to the Router
Now try to connect to the new network you just setup
