Log into your router through yor computer browser. Name and password is usually both admin. Look up your router to get the Address to put in your browser. It should be on the instructions if you have them. If not they are on the Belkin site. Pretty easy

Rate me if this helped.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

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.

Belkin wireless adapter


Sometimes wireless phones will interfere with the signals. If the router or PC is anywhere near a phone, it might have a problem. I have one wireless network card that gives me fits like that. I have yet to get a PC working with it. I have other wireless cards that work fine. I also switched to 5GHz phones, which helped my old laptop. Check to make sure there's not a conflict with the encryption used by either the dell or the router.

If I understand this correctly, Your work's IT people setup your router and you need the Security Password to access?

You should ask your work's IT people for the password.
If you are asking how to break that security key, I'm am not sure you will find that info here.

Can't get a linksys wireless G PCI adapter to connect to my belkin wireless g router


Alright, First thing is to sett up the router properly. How well experience in this are you? Do you know how to IP into it and set it up manually? do you just use the easy install disk? Do you know ow to set up the encryption key?

Im asking so i dont have to spend alot of typing, explaining something you may already know. If you dont though, its o.k. I will help you.


Typically you want to set the router up first and set an encryption key. Usually something that no one can geuss like ADMIN or PASSWORD or something easily guessed. Also you name your router, like " The Big Puff or My router or some name that no one else will have so you can easily distinguish your wireless signal from others. Default is LINKSYS and the default IP is 192.168.1.1 and the password is ADMIN.

If you flip the router upside down, you will see a spot that tells you this. Thats why you have to change it, cuz everyone knows it.

Also, you need to set the Router password too so that no one else can ip into it and change it on you.

Alot of the times, the setup disk will have a easy setup wizard that can make this easy for newbies.

You want to be sure to have a secure and functioning router. Once this is achieved, install the wireles adapter and drivers software.

You have two options, use windows to control the adapter or the belkins utility that came with it. whichever works best for you.

Now in the options you have to set up the connection or you can just findit,click and connect and enter the encryption.

If windows is running the show for the adapter, you can right click on your wireless icon in the bottom right corner and select, " VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

When it loads it will show all signals including yours if you set up the router right.

Yours should be the strongest signal as well.

Select it or double click it and windows will automatically try to connect and when it does it will ask for the encryption key that you gave it earlier when you set up the router.

Enter that in exactly with caps and lower case where applicable.

It should then connect.

The situation is similar when using the belkins utility instead except that its more graphically friendly.

All wireless devices are made to be used with each other and have the same FCC requirements and theoretically it should matter which brand you use, they should all be compatible if there of the same type. I.E. G or B.

Try this and let me know if you still need help.

Dont bw affraid to call linksys on setting up your wireless router. When i first started out and knew nothing, i called linkysys for help and the guy walked me through the whole thing. Same with Belkin, allthough belkin support was not as good.

I have a Belkin FSD9230-4 wireless router, it says it is unsecured when I go on using my laptop. How do I secure the wireless connection?


You will have to login to the router's web utility, go to wireless security settings, and choose either WEP, or WPA. After selecting one of the two you will need to select a passphrase which you will need the next time you connect. I suggest WPA personal, because it offers a stronger encryption method than wep, making it more secure.
