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

What is my wep key


A WEP key is a security code generated in your wireless router.
You need this code in order to connect to your security enabled, wireless network.
If you log into your router you should be able to find it in the wireless security settings.
It can be a word, phrase, or a bunch of random characters.

How to secure my wireless


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default username and password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

zoom x6 in full bridged mode Good Morning all, I have searched google and these forums, but can not seem to figure out what is going wrong with my port forwarding. Problem: Can not ssh to internal server. Setup: ADSL WAN line connected to the RJ11 jack on my Zoom x6 (model 5590C). Zoom router is currently set to FULL Bridged mode. Cat6 cable is connected to Port 1 on the Zoom router, the other end of the cable is connected to the WAN port of my WRT54GL (running Tomato v1.23). Other linux boxes are connected to the LAN ports of the WRT54GL. I am able to see the Internet from all computers on the Local Lan inside of the WRT54GL. In Tomato I see the Public WAN IP that is being passed to it via the Zoom router. WAN IP: 9x.xx.xx.xx LAN IP: 10.xx.xx.xx/28 LAN DHCP: is on and working correctly. Port forwarding->Basic->Has the following (lets use port 55555): On |||| Proto |||| Src Addr |||| Ext Prots |||| Int Ports |||| Int Addr |||| Description X |||| TCP |||| [left blank] |||| 55555 |||| 55555 |||| 10.xx.xx.14 |||| ssh server Now I have no special Iptable rules added to the WRT54GL as of yet... since I can't ssh in yet either.. The server have port 55555 entered in its /etc/ssh/sshd_config and I can access this by all computers on the internal LAN, so the server config is good. But I cannot access anything if I am coming in thru the WAN. nmap shows that all normal ports are filtered, which is good, but if I run: nmap -P0 -sV 9x.xx.xx.xx -p55555 The reply is also filtered. When I try to ssh to my WAN IP from the WAN it times out. Tomato logs are not seeing the attempted scans, though iptables is reporting 'DROP's from other things on the Internet. When I dump the Tomato Iptables config it appears to be right to me and unfortunately I did not bring a copy of them to work with me today. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there anything that I need to explain further or that is not clear in my post? ANY input on this would be GREATLY appreciated, even if its just a link to something that might help. Thank you all in advance!
