Hi Joe,

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so if you're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know and I can send you revised instructions.

If your router is broadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in most routers, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You should have an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click on it and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows your network connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X" through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networks in your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this list and it will likely have a name associated with the router's manufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be the network that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. You should now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whether the connection process is completed successfully, you will see a notification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like

If the above procedures are not successful, then you will have to get into your router to obtain the correct attributes - or reset your router back to its original factory-set default parameters, which will be documented in their documentation. Unfortunately, Belkin does not reference a "1A359" router on their support site, so I don't know what actual model you have and can't give you specific instructions. Please look at the label on the bottom of your router to find the correct model #.

Hope this helps! Please re-post if it does not or if you have other questions.

Belkin router setup wont work

you shouldn't type it as http://router/. instead you need to type the default gateway of the router.
most probably it will be either or
after you type the above mentioned URL in the address bar, hit enter.
the router will ask for a default username and password.
again the username is admin, leave the password column blank and hit enter or log in.
you can find the option to change the default ssid and wireless key over there. if you need more assistance on this, please do reply to this post.
p.s: once you change the ssid and wireless key, you need to reconfigure your laptops or mobile phones or ipods whichever is connected wireless.

I own a belkin n150 router. i've used ti on my laptop and now i bought a another computer and it won't let me access my router. it is asking for a security key. any idea how to access it or find it?

Your wireless card in her laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (security key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Trying to use belkin router with linksys adapter i need new drivers

You need to configure the Belkin router with a SSID and WAP or WEP encryption, Then install the Linksys adapter driver in the computer and then configure the Linksys adapter with the Belkin router settings (ie. the SSID and encryption) before the Linksys can communicate eith the Belkin router.

Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer? Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections". If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it. If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again. let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
