The wireless router default IP addresses are

192.168.0.1
192.168.1.1
192.168.2.1

in a Class C private network (subnet mask 255.255.255.0) in the last octet
0 is the network
1 is the first device (router if you have one)
2 - 254 are the devices (computers/printers etc)
255 is broadcast

Trying to secure wireless network


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to secure the network you all you need to do is to access the router settings page and put a security either WEP, WPA or WPA2 and a Network Key or Passphrase.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless, Select WEP, WPA or WPA2 and personalize a Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase). Security Key serves as a password on the network.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Where and how do i find my access point I'am trying to set up a wireless internet connection


Hi Kregerbc,

If you want to know your Access Point it is the Name of your Network or Network Key (SSID). Usually the Network Name of 2wire router is 2WIRE and the Last 3 digits of the Serial Number of the Router. The Serial Number is located at the side of the router you will find a Sticker and look for the Serail Number you can also see there the Wireless Network Key under the Bar Code. Another Procedure to find the information of the router is to access it. listed below are the steps on how to access the router.

  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your Wireless Connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
Rate me if this helps so i can help others

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi,

You can make the network secure putting a password with it. You need to access the Wireless Settings Page of the router. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is admin and the password is password. Go to the Wireless Settings Page, Under Wireless Security Mode you can select either WEP,WPA or WPA2. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a belkin router set up in my home and I just purchased a 2nd laptop but I am unsure how to add this new laptp to the connector


If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

Belkin F5D8233-4 router & I pod touch wifi


What I would try is while the wifi is unsecure go on the computer and open up the browser you are using, on your router the default ip address is 192.168.2.1moz-screenshot.jpg

type the router default ip address in the browser where you would normally type a web address www.google.com

Logging into the Router
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Configuring the Wireless Network Settings
The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point.
Setting up an Allow Access List
1. Select the “Allow” radio button (1) to begin setting up a list of
computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.
2. Next, in the “MAC Address” field that is blank (3), type in the
MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to
access the wireless network, then click “<<Add” (4).
3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add
have been entered.
4. Click “Apply Changes” (5) to finish.

this will allow only the wireless device you select to access your router.
