The Network Key is the method for encrypting a transmission on a wireless network. If you originally setup your wireless router you should know this key. Otherwise, contact whomever setup your wireless router and ask what the key may be. You will want to ask whether it is WEP or WPA as well.

To reset, you can clear the key if you can login to the router, otherwise holding the reset button while the router is unplugged will clear the key (and all the other settings so this might be dangerous). To clear it, hold the button for at least ten seconds.

After a clear, you will need to setup the router again. Consult your documentation if you have it. If it is a netgear or linksys, use IP 192.168.1.1 User=Admin password=Administrator, if you have a D-Link, try IP 192.168.0.1 and User=Admin password=Admin. If it is something else, try either of the previous combos. (unless it is a Cisco, then it is 10.0.0.2 User=Administrator password=Cisco).

Hope this helps, even a little.

Just look on the back of the router and find the reset hole. It's small and you'll need a paperclip to put in the hole but you must unplug the router first then put the paper clip end into the hole and hold the button down while you plug in the router making sure you hold the button for about 20 seconds. Now you should have a reset router.
Hope that helps,
Henry

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

I have a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router that I lost the setup assistant cd to. How can I still hook it up and make it work?


You can still configure it even without the setup CD of the router, you just need to access the router setup page using its IP address, usinga computer wired to the router, But if you want you can call Belkin tech support so one of their tech can walk you through on how to manually configure the router 1-800-2235546..

How to i configure my system Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO to allow a home network to see all the PC on the netwrok plus my Network Storage. My internet conection works fine?


For each of your computers, right click on 'My Computer' then click on 'Properties'.

Under the 'Computer Name' tab, make sure each of your computers are members of the same workgroup ID. Just make a name up and use it for all of your computers.

The information that you want to be shared between your network computers should be placed in the 'shared' folder.

After doing this, make sure all of your computers are running and that they each have a working internet connection.

Go to My Network Places, click on view workgroup computers.
You should be able to see all of the computers in your network.

As far as configuring the router goes, if you haven't changed the settings in the past, Nothing should have to be altered in order to view other computers on your network.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
