The person who has the router attached to there computer must enter the IP for the router and you will be able to reset the password to enter the router. If you need Help doing this I can solve this issue with you through my computer.

Hope This Helps

Somehow my belkin 54g router is now a secured network and i didnt set it to be and now i cant get a signal because i dont know the security code. how do i put it back to being unsecured?


Please enter the IP address of the Router in the internet explorer and enter the user name and password of the router.(admin, admin). When the windows will open, you can see the wireless security. When you click on that you can see the security key. Other wise you can change the security key.

My roommates laptop is connecting to the internet, mine won't


Sometimes the key length would change for security purposes. What you have to make sure is that you are entering the correct network key.
Use a connected computer like your roommates laptop or hardwired connect you laptop to the router using an ethernet cable to access the setup page of the router.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.1.1. By default, leave the username blank, password is admin.
Go to Wireless -> Wireless security.
You will see the network key. Just copy that and enter it on your laptop.
I hope this helps!

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Upgraded to windows 7 and i am unable to connect to the internet. I get a limited or no connectivity


I'm thinking modem/router combination. first power down modem and router. Then leaving router unplugged, power up modem, make sure it's sync up then power up router. If this is a wireless connection search for your networks name on computer/laptop..ie View wireless connection. Windows allows a automatic setup if the wireless connection is unsecured. If it is secured Windows 7 will prompt a pass phrase/ or access code. Good luck. Repeat process if necessary

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.
