You should have a manual with instructions for opening the router interface. You must power it up and have it connected to your PC. Then open a browser. In the address bar type 192.168.2.1. From the product manual: You will see the Router's home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router's settings, you have to log in. Clicking the "Login" button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the "Submit" button to log in.
You should create your own password for access to the router. Page 45 of the manual describes how to secure your network. If you do not have a manual, you can get it here. That should offer you a download of the PDF manual. If that does not work, go to this page and click on the link for your manual.
Hope this helps.

My belkin G+ wireless router model: F5D9231-4 v2 security is lock and i cant log into my laptop


If you have forgotten the password, reset the Belkin by pushing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds or so and release, this will reset to default settings. Connect and reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. You may want to write down the password and store for future use. Belkin Support: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?rnId=6939

I cant use xbox live without plugging into router which im unable to do. Is there another solution


You can do it wirelessly. You need a wireless router and if you have an older model Xbox(The newer models have the wireless adaptor built in) you need to by the wireless adaptor. Found a Liknsys Cisco wireless N-300 router refurbished on Tiger Direct for under $30. I bought one there excellent same one at Walmart between $60 and $90. The Adaptor for the 360 is $79.99 to $99.99 and you can get those online or at Walmart and Gamestop.

Just bought a new Compaq wireless laptop keeps asking me for a security key. Is this my provider or The Belkin router It's old and not been used for a few years model F5D9230-4


It is the router that you need to configure, to define:

* SSID (a "name")

* an encryption-level (use: WPA)

* a password/security-key

for your wireless network.

Then, you can connect to your network.

there is no specific life span for the router. As long as the settings on the router are working then the router will work.
If the settings are not correct then the router will not work.
Your old router might be still working. You just need to check the settings of the router.
I believe you can set up the router properly.
It is very easy.

How to secure P-660HW-T1 v2 wireless router


WIRELESS
Look in your manual for a method to set wireless security to WPA. Choose a non-obvious encryption key and make it long for best security. WEP will not secure your wireless. You may also consider not broadcasting your SSID.

WIRED
Don't use the DMZ. It great reduces your security. Close any ports that you are not using. Use a password for your router and don't enable remote adminsistration.
