Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because:
1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add;
2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.
Corrective measures would entail:
a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or
b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.
In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kin regards.

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

Shutdown your PC. Unplug the power from the router and the cable modem.
Wait 30 sec. then plug in the power to the cable modem, wait 30 sec. then plug the power to the router. Wait till you have "Internet" light then restart your PC. The PC should pick up an IP address and you should be able to get on-line. This is if you have a cable service provider. If you have DSL, the router needs to be configured with PPOe.

You don't need the cd. It has a connection wizard that helps set it up but you don't need to use that. You need to go to the belkin website and download the manual. That was also on the cd that's missing. Used to be a paper one in the box.
That will tell you how to get setup. For the most part routers run as is right out of the box. You will want to setup the wifi so you will need a SSID name to call it and then turn on the security. WEP or WPA are the usual suspects. Pick a 5 or 10 alphanumeric key. Turn on the wifi. Then you may need to enable dhcp so your computers will get ip numbers from the the router. Most of that is enabled by default on most routers. Wifi usually isn't as it requires more information.

Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
MAke sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.
