Question about Belkin F5D7234-4 Router
Unplug the power to your modem.
Turn off all of your computers.
Plug your router into an outlet so that it has power now.
Using the ethernet cable that's coming out of your modem, connect the modem to the "Internet" or "WAN" jack on the back of the router. Now plug the power back into the modem.
Plug a computer into the router using an ethernet cable. Plug into one of your open jacks. Now turn the computer on.
On your computer, open up a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc. Type in the IP Address of your router. This should be found somewhere on the router itself, or in the paperwork that came with the router. If it is not, you should be able to find it by going into command prompt.
------ Go to Start, click on Run and in the Run window type CMD. In Vista or Windows 7, go to the Start Orb and type CMD in the Search Bar and then click on Command Prompt. Now that you are in Command Prompt type IPCONFIG and press enter. You are looking for Default Gateway (that's your router's IP Address) write that IP Address down and then type it into your web browser.
Now that the Router Setup Utility is open, click on login in the upper right hand corner. That particular router shouldn't have shipped with a Username or Password on it, so just hit enter on the login window without typing anything. If that does not work, try to use admin as your password and leave the username blank. If that doesn't work, please comment back and let us know.
In the Connection Type tab, you may have to put in information that only your Internet Service Provider can give you at which point they should be able to help you over the phone. However, it's possible that if you leave it on Dynamic for Cable internet access, or PPPoE for DSL internet access, then it will just work.
I assume you want to use the router for wireless connectivity, so you will have to navigate to the wireless tab and set yourself up with an SSID (network name) this is a name that you create so that when you search for a wireless network you can find YOUR network. Set the wireless channel to Auto, or to channel 6. If you wish to secure your network this is also where you do it at.
Keep in mind that any changes you make in a router must be saved before you navigate away from the page, or they will not keep. There should be a save settings button at the bottom of each page.
I hope this helps! If it doesn't please comment back and let us know!
