If the Belkin does not product much heat then it is OK to keep it covered, if it gets too warm then NO or use a thin cloth cover.

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.

  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).

  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

My belkin wireless g router just died. it stopped


Just a coincidence for sure, devices hooked up wirelessly to a router could never trigger or harm the router.

Router is not connecting with my laptop in my home or my ipod touch.


Questions:
Did it just start, or has it happened before, if so, how often?
I've found that I have to reboot my Belkin router, usually daily!
What I've found was my wireless headphones were interferring with the wireless channels on my Belkin. I ended up unplugging my wireless headphones while on the internet, then plugging them back when I wanted to use them.
I even went into the router's software and changed the wireless channel to see if that would help, it didnt.
Things that I found to interfere with Belkin Wireless Routers:
1. wireless headphones
2. cordless phones
3. UPS (uninterruptable power supply), (SOME) for some reason it's emitting frequencies within the wireless band of the router.
4. Cable In-House Amplifier
5. Ive had two really weird ones, a microwave oven and a clock radio. I traced those by switching off circuit breakers, until the problem quit.
Work-around Solution, Ive had to move my router as far away as possible from these sources, or these sources away from the router, except of course my wireless headphones, didnt matter where I put it, it still affected the router. Hope this helps.

Low broadcast signal


Turn off or move any other gadgets that may emit a wireless signal. Other wireless signals may prevent the router signal from being as strong as it should be
