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 !!

Re: input of incorrect WEP settings on notebook
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.

Connect to internet using ethernet cable and update wifi driver from makers site, if this does not work then buy a usb wifi adapter off ebay or from a local store, put it into usb port and install the driver from the disc supplied with the adapter and off you go (far cheaper than replacing the wifi card)
1. Select the Wireless tab. Then, select "Set Up Qwest Wireless Adapter."
2. Another window with various wireless adapters will appear. Click on your model.
3. Then select "Installation and Drivers." Another window will appear with links to drivers for different versions of Windows- 7, Vista, XP and sometimes earlier. Select your version of windows and click on the link to download the drivers and save to your desktop.
5. Install the drivers and follow the instructions.
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, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
To set up the router, you connect directly to the router with a network cable, log into the router using your Internet browser, to a code like 192.168.0.1, or similar. I suggest that you use the wizard, but be sure to change: Wireless security of WEP and access code of your 10 digit home or cell phone#, change system ID to something you recognize, change router access password AND RECORD IT, change wireless channel to 11 and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones.
With routers, you have to SAVE on each page or loose settings.
Then install the router, and look for it in the wireless connections list on your laptop. Give the access password and you should be good to go. The desktop usually connects via network cable.
The wep code is the security code for your wireless network. this is setting of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router. check the IP address on that computer. If yes then you can open the router set up page on
that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check
all the router settings. Click Here for more information about the routers
Connect ethernet cable between PC and router
On back of router may be a IP number like 18.104.22.168
Open internet explorer and type in this number
It may ask you for a password - try no password or 'admin'
If you cannot guess the password becuase it has been set to an unknown word. reset the router using hidden button on back.
Once you have a menu, use the wizard to input your ISP login name and password.
To set up wireless, set an SSID (any name - e.g. fred).
Try to get wireless working between laptop and router.
Once it works, set a WEP key in the router and computer for better security.
Installing a Wireless Router Is usually a step by step process for all brands , To get this installation done properly first thing you want ot do is Plug in the power cord and turn this Router on nearby the Modem that your internet Service Provider gave you. Once the Unit is powered I would like you to unplug the ethernet cable that is going from your cable box to your desktop and plug that ethernet wire to the back of your new D-link wireless router into the WAN port. Once you do that you should allready be transmiting wireless but your name will be the default D-Link and you wont be encrypted (Protected from others getting into your internet). To get password encrypted you will have to using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box and press enter. Then from there you should select the Wireless section and put a SSID name which is what shows up when you find your wireless router on another computer and WEP or WAP is the password encryption if you want to make it easy I would suggest you use a WEP 64 BIT and that will only ask you for a 10 digit number. I usually tell my customers to put in there phone number with the area code . then from there you can navigate the other options you can customize and save the router settings and you should be up and running from there. using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box
It is common to have this as the default IP to connect to equipment.
I suggest you unplug your modem while you set up your router. You can also change the default IP for the router while in the settings. be sure to remember the new IP or you will have to do a factory reset to get it back to default
