It is not hard to change the name of your wireless network. Well, not hard as long as you have the IP addy for the router and you have the log in and pasword if it is pasword protected. Simply put in the router IP address in your Internet Explorer window like a web addy... most times the addy is 192.168.1.1 If your router is pasword protected it will bring up a login window. Put in the login and pasword and you are in. The main page will list all the information on the router including the name of the network, simply change the network name and then save the changes. And presto bango. Hope this helps.

I've been using the Belkin N1 router using it for my wireless connection for almost 3 years now. But only last night, the wireless light is out, and the security light is out as well. I've tried unplugging...


I think the power cable of your modem has been damaged. kindly check the power cable. If there is no light on the modem , it is assumed to be that the power cable has been damaged. so you have to purchase the power cable of the modem. If the power cable is found to be perfect , kindly purchase the net work cables/ OR prepare the net work cables if you are aware of about the network cables., because the clippings of the network cables might have spoiled. If the power cable of modem, network cables are found to be perfect , it is certainly , the modem might have damaged. To fix the all the problems mentioned above , you are requested to to contact your ISP ( Internet Service Provider) . They will certainly fix your problems. In the mean while kindly try to solve yourself. If you are paying rent towards the monthly charges against the modem to ISP , they must be replace your modem with new one. If you have purchased the modem by paying the cost of the modem at the time of installation of the internet connection , you have to purchase the new modem, if the old modem was found to be damaged.

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.

Router Security Light is Blinking


Hello,
I have the same symptoms. In my opinion, this is done because you turned your Belkin from a router to access point position. I did it also (issues with adsl modem/router). By manual the flashing diod means no secure device. But, without pass you can't access your Belkin. So, probably, some fault in firmaware.

Nice day.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.
