Make sure the you are wired correctly. 1) The incoming cable/dsl to the modem. 2) The modem to the WAN (Internet) RJ 45 connection on the router. 3) The router wired to the computer during set up. You can not set up the router unless you are hard wired to the router.
Then try connecting using the IP address Belkin sent you. Probably 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Use Internet Explorer.
Reset the router and try it with the WPA2. If you haven't you should update firmware to version 1.05. This version fixes the WPA2 authentication issue. However, be forewarned that if you update to this version, it seems to reboot the router if you put too much traffic through it...
typical setup: make sure everything is switched OFF, then, you will plug one side of the wire to the "WAN" port on your belkin and the other side of the same wire will go in the "LAN" port on the cable/DSL modem/device.
then you would take another wire and this time you will plug one side of the wire in the "LAN" port on your belkin router and the other side of the wire into your desktop/laptop computer.
1.first power on the cable/DSL modem, wait 20 - 30 seconds for the modem to go in ready state. 2. power on the belkin and wait another 15- 20 seconds for it to become ready. 3. finally power up your PC and everything should be good to go.
Note: if router is new and came with setup CD run that in the computer and follow instructions.
let me know if there are any issues.

Are you able to get online directlty from modem? If yes check what is IP address you get from modem, if it is like 192.168.1.xxx, then you need to set connection type as DHCP(not PPPoE), and change router's local IP address to 192.168.2.1 , and reboot router and modem.You can try this steps:
1. Access the router setting via a browser. 2. On Setup, Basic Setup: - Internet Connection Type unchanged as "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" - Local IP Address changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 - Settings saved 3. Clicked on Status to check if IP Address value has numbers (not 0.0.0.0). If you have zeroes, click DHCP Release then DHCP Renew. 4. Wired connection to internet OK. Wireless connection from a family PC also OK. Good to go i thinks.Let us know.
One known solution to many of the Actiontec WI424WR Problems is to upgrade the firmware using the Routers Web Interface to download and install , there is also a glitch you may encounter while upgrading , the screen may appear to freeze during the process but to udate the screen you just have to refresh the page,
