I have just set up my pc again after moving house.
My wireless keyboard (Belkin) is not connecting.
I have plugged in the adaptor and press connect and it comes up on screen to press reconnect on the keyboard!
I havent a key that says reconnect on the top of keyboard!
I have a reset button on the bottom of the keyboard but thats not reconnect is it?
The batteries are new as well.
Hi. I have just worked out how to solve this as I had a similar problem. When you change the batteries of a Belkin Wireless Keyboard model F8E332ukBNDL you need to reconnect the keyboard to the wireless receiver that plugs into the USB port. To do this you press the 'Connect' button on the receiver and also press the green LED connect light at the top right of the keyboard - the one that flashes each time you press a key. I'm not sure in what combination you press these but I pressed them both and it worked.

Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password. You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
had the same problem and tried pressing down the connection button on the keyboard at the same time as the connect button on the receiver. If you press down on both intermittently then they should pick up each other.
It seems there isnt a reset button like there is on the mouse, which is what i was looking for on the keyboard - i presume they mean the connection button / LED light but you have to press the receiver button at the same time.
Use a computer that is hard-wired (connected with an ethernet cable) to your Belkin router for this process:
1) Open Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser)
2) In the Address bar (where it says "http://www.fixya . . . " right now), delete the address that's there and type in these numbers: 192.168.2.1
3) Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard. This should open a Belkin router page. If it does NOT open a Belkin router page, follow steps 4 - 8 below. If it DOES open a Belkin router page, skip to step 9.
- - 4) Click "start" and then click "run." (On Vista, click "start")
- - 5) Type "CMD" (without the quotes) into the RUN window. (On Vista, type CMD where it says "start search.") Press the Enter key on your keyboard.
- - 6) You should now have a window open with a black background. Type "ping -r 1 www.yahoo.com" (without the quotes) and press the Enter key on your keyboard.
You will get a readout that looks something like this:
Reply from 188.8.131.52: bytes=32 time=294ms TTL=56
The number after the word "Route" is the address of your Belkin router. Write this number down.
- - 7) Close all open windows and open up Internet Explorer (or your favorite browser) again.
- - 8) Type in the address of your router.
9) On most Belkin routers, there is a section in the menu on the left that says "Wireless." Under this section is a link to "Security." Click that link, and you will see the wireless code you need to connect your laptop.
On some routers the "wireless" and "security" menus are in a different location, perhaps at the top of the page instead of on the left.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
