I have a Belkin router that has NOT yet been secured. Last night the security lock light came on and now I can not use my wireless with my laptop, because I do not know how to get by the security code. It has not been set. What do I do??

Odds are someone saw the network, saw it was unsecured, and changed admin and password on you. What you'll need to do is reset the router. On the back, should be a button you press with a pen tip. Press that and hold it for approx. 15 seconds. Power-cycle the router, and you should be able to access it again.

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:

Belkin Wireless router problem?

Sounds like you took all the right steps.In add and remove programs at the control panel,remove your wireless card drivers and anything related to it.
Be sure to write down your wep security key from your router first.

Then remove the card,reboot,put the card back in,then reinstall the drivers.

If this does not work the wireless card may be bad.

Hope this helps.
