Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

3 Answers

Input of incorrect WEP settings on notebook

I installed my new wireless g router on my desktop. Once installed, I go to my notebook. Using qwest broadband, I click on the roaming client manager, I see belkin54g, connect to the router, no problem. Once connected, I install the CD and go to wireless security as security was
showing as Off. I input my WEP/WPA Key into option 64-bit WEP. Lost my connect to the router because I used the incorrect option. How can I access the security options to turn encryption off so I can use the CD again to correctly setup the wifi security settings. Once connection to router was lost, I could no longer use the CD to go to the main page. Will try again while awaiting your response.
Thnaks in advance !!

There are 2 things you can do. One is to connect the router to the notebook via ethernet cable. You will then be able to enter the router's page by typing 192.168.2.1. The other option is to reset the router to its default factory settings. This is done by pressing the reset button on the back of the router and hold it down for 30 seconds with power still on.

Enabling Wireless security on Linksys routers.....


Encrypting the network blocks any unauthorized computer from accessing the network and using its broadband connection. To enable WEP on the router,

1. Open your default browser and enter the following IP address into the address bar: <http://192.168.1.1>
2. When prompted for a username and password type “admin” on password, unless you have previously changed the password of the router, and hit OK. This will bring you to the Setup page of the router.
3. Depending on the firmware of the router. Click on the WEP Key Settings button. Or you can click the Wireless tab and select Wireless Security. Or you can click the Security Tab and select Wireless.
4. From the WEP/Security Settings window, you may enable 64 or 128 bit WEP then enter your Password on the Passphrase field and click on Generate. Make sure to copy the characters on Key 1-4 on a piece of paper before you hit APPLY. You will be needing this once you enable WEP on the wireless PC’s. Also take note that if you enable 64 or 128 bit on the router, this should be the same WEP level that you will enable on the wireless cards.

To put in the network key in your wireless adapter follow the steps below:

WEP Encryption XP's Wireless Zero Configuration ( Advisable for XP PC's )

1. Go to start>Control Panel>Network Connections>Right click on the Wireless connection then click on Properties>Click on the Wireless Networks Tab
2. From the Wireless Network Connection properties window, under the Preferred network click on Add then type your SSID on the SSID field and check the box for Data Encryption then then unchecked “The Key is provided for me Automatically”
3. Type your WEP Keys on both the Network Key and Confirm Network Key field. (This set of characters should be identical to the WEP Keys Settings on the router. For 64-bit WEP you should have 10 characters, for 128-bit you should type in 26 characters.) Then hit OK and then OK again.
4. After hitting OK a pop-up should appear on the lower right hand side saying “Connected”. Try pointing your mouse arrow on the lower double monitor icon.
5. Restart your PC

5. Set the same WEP level that you have enabled on the router. ( ex. 64 or 128 )

HI, HI, I HAVE A WRT54G CISCO ROUTER, AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF I HAVE TO INSTALL THE NETWORK MAGIC SOFTWARE TO CONNECT TO ROUTER ? , BECAUSE WITHOUT THIS SOFTWARE IS NOT POSSIBLE CONNECT MY NOTEBOOK...


You do not need to install Network Magic.
You need to configure your wireless router and then the wireless card in your notebook with the router's wireless settings.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I reset my wireless settings - both the Name (SSID) and input a new 128 bit WEP passphrase and then generate to create a key. I then check wireless networks and refresh. The new Name (SSID) appears but...


I recommend accessing the wireless settings on your router, cut-n-paste the WEP passphrase into a text document on your desktop, then copy and paste the info when you attempt to connect the next time.

If that doesn't work perhaps you need to backup and delete any wireless profiles previously associated with this device and then try again.

Let me know if this helps..

Use 2700 as router only?


there's a way to make the gateway act as a router only but it's not really recommended since there's a possibility that the connection will not be as stable as it should.
anyways you can try the following steps in making your gateway act as a router (not really a router but just a switch and a wireless access point).
- access the router's web user interface by typing http://192.168.0.1 on your web browser
- then click on the "Advanced Configuration Settings"
- select the "Transparent Bridging" option (note: you must configure your wireless settings first before trying these steps since you might not be able to access the gateway's page anymore once you save the changes)
- set the vpi to 0 and vci to 32 if it asked you for those settings. next to 'ATM PVC Search' select the radio button next to Disable. ensure Bridged LLC is selected next to 'ATM Encapsulation'.
- then save the settings
- connect now the new modem to one of the ethernet ports of the 2700hg-d using an rj-45 or an ethernet cable

hope this'll help you.

Connecting a new wireless notebook to my existing Belkin 802.11g


All the steps you have mentioned is You are correct..you can connect by configuring the WEP code. but if you have disabled the ssid broadcast then you have to add your access point(FSD7239-4) manually when the wireless discovery fails to detect.
And also refer the manual of the Notebook or wireless adaptor' manual for how to configure the same. (Check the help files of the client configuratin utility if anything installed if not you can refer how to use Wireless Configuration in windows.)

With Regards,
