Release the reset and let the router sit for 2 mins. then set it up again. !!!***Warning***!!! This will set the unit to factory settings, it will retain none of you original setting so make sure you back those up as well.

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

You have to connect(wired) through one of the ports on the back of belkin to a laptop(or PC) physically.And this laptop(orPC) should have the software that came in the CD as part of the router packaging.
Then you open the web browser and and type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar.This should let you access the router from where you can configure your settings..Network name,password,password for the router itself etc.

There will be a reset button on the back of the router; you need to press and HOLD IT IN while you power off and on the router, hold it in for 30 seconds and it will erase all the settings and return to factory default.

Testimonial: "Thanks, for your help. the botton reset didn´t work i need open the modem and make reset inside of them, thanks "
To reset your router to default factory settings press in and hold the reset button for about 30sec. Should be on the bottom or the back of the router by the power cord. You should find it.

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if
you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network
password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new
If you cannot log into your router because you
have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked,
please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device"
To view or reset a wireless network password:
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost
or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to
reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset
to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and
password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to
reconfigure your router settings.
NOTE: Restoring factory defaults
on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose
any configurations saved to the device!
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the
password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default
When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.
Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)

if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings
hope this helps
