The only option is to reset your router. Here's the steps;

- Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

- Continue pressing the reset button after powering on the router and wait for 15 seconds then release the reset button.

- The router will now reboot, wait for atleast 15 to 20 seconds, power light should be solid after the reboot.

- Know open your browser(Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari) and type the default IP address of your router(192.168.2.1) on the address bar.

- Type "admin" for the username and leave the password blank.

- You can now access the setup page of your router.

- For the brand of your modem Scientific Atlanta(which I believe is a cable modem), just set the internet connection type to dynamic(see manual, you can download it from the Belkin website for free).

Hope this help you solve your problem with your Belkin router, if you need further clarification just post a reply.

Regards,

Many households have unsecured wireless networks, which can lead to hackers as well as leaks in confidential information. However, you can password-protect your wireless network by taking some basic steps.

Determine your network IP address by navigating to the "Start" menu and selecting "Run." In the Run dialog, type "cmd" (without quotes) and click "OK." The Command Prompt dialog opens. Type "ipconfig/all" (without quotes) and press "Enter." The command prompt will display a list of data for you network, including your IP address. Launch a Web browser and input your IP address in the address box. The control page of your router is displayed. Refer to the manual that came with your specific router on the manufacturer password/user name to login to your network. Usually the User Name is "admin" or "password" and the password is either "admin" or "password." Sometimes these fields are left blank. After logging into the router you can access the administrative functions. Within the administrative functions, navigate to the security settings. Within the security settings, you can change the username and password to log in to the router. Disable the router's remote administrative functions. Remote administrative functions allow anyone using the Internet to access your router. To be more secure, disable these options. The only reason to enable them is if a network administrator isn't always on location. Change the network's name. Your router comes with a default network name like WLAN or Linksys. These names are referred to as SSIDs. You want to change the name to something that you will recognize, but others won't associate with you. If your name is John, don't call your network "John's Network." Enable encryption and enter a password in the appropriate field. Wireless routers use several types of encryption, including WPA2, WPA and WEP.
At the time of publication, WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protect Access 2) is the most secure encryption format available on some routers. But you can't use this encryption type if your router doesn't support it. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is recommended if WPA2 isn't available on your specific model. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy is the least secure of all the encryption formats and is relatively easy to hack. If you have no other choice, use at least WEP encryption. Some protection is better than no protection.. Record your password and settings for future reference. If you lose your password, you can reset your wireless router to the manufacturer's default settings by pressing the router's "Reset" button, usually found on the back of the unit. Remember to re-secure your network after a reset.

I need to secure my router. I had payed to have it set up when I was getting my computer fixed only to find out that my son could log on with out a password. How can I fix this.


To set up wireless router security, there are four main steps, which are the same for most routers. These are:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
4) Enable WPA encryption.
************DETAILS************
1) Login to your router, using a wired (Ethernet) connection.
Make sure you have a cabled connection to your router. Then open a web browser, and type the router’s IP address into the address bar. For example, this is http://192.168.0.1
If you log in successfully, you should then see the router configuration screen.
2) Change the router login password.
To change the router password, find a menu option such as Setup, Tools, Administration, Basic Settings, Management, or Utilities.
Set and confirm a new login password. Click ‘Save/Apply’ when finished.
3) Change the SSID (network name):
The SSID or Network Name is the name you see when you are looking for an ‘available wireless network’.
To access this setting, find a menu option such as Wireless, Wireless Security, Security, or perhaps Advanced Settings.
Change the SSID from the default, to anything you like. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters – but do not use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Save’ or ‘Apply’ when finished.
4) Enable WPA encryption
Find the Wireless Security or Wireless Encryption Options section - often in the same section as the SSID (eg for Netgear – it’s still in Wireless Settings).
You may have a number of encryption options. Select WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK (good choices to start with).
You then need to enter a network key. The box to enter this may be labelled Network Key: it may also be labelled WPA-PSK, WPA Shared Key, PSK, Security key, Passphrase, Pre-shared key, Authentication key .
Note down your network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply/Save’ when finished.
That's it - you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

Unsecure network


You will have to log into your router and configure WEP encryption.
To login to your router you can follow steps from documenation received with the router. It will be along the lines of open up internet explorer and in the address bar type in the IP address of the router. Most liekly 192.168.1.1 it will ask you to login should tell you credentials in router setup manual. Once in the configuration there should be a security tab were you can select the type of security to use select WEP v2 and type in a secure password. Once completed whoever wants to connect to your wireless will have to enter the WEP password. You should only have to enter it once. Then you will be as secure as you can be. If you wanted to get more secure you would change the admin password to log into the router also.
Let me know if you need further help.

Securing wireless network


I have here the step by step guide from Belkin's Support site.

Configuring WPA-PSK Encryption:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
  2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
  4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
  5. Under Security Mode, select WPA/WPA2-personal (PSK)
  6. Select WPA2-PSK as your Authentication
  7. Select AES as the Encryption Technique.
  8. Enter a word or group of characters in the Password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length.
    Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case sensitive ("A" is different than "a")
  9. Click Apply changes to save the settings.

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.

Greetings!

I am presuming that the address you are using, 192.168.1.1 is the address from the user manual. This may not be the address that is actually assigned to your router however.

The Linksys Router can be configured in one of two ways, either with a static IP Address or by DHCP, a service that automatically assigns an IP from a DHCP Server on your network.

An easy way to test this is to go to a PC on your network that you know is functional and uses the Linksys Router as its network access point and open a command prompt from the start menu (start/accessories/command prompt).

At the command prompt type in tracert www.fixya.com and hit enter. The first address that you see in the traceroute is the IP address of the Linksys Router.

Write this down IP down and then plug it into your web browser. A login prompt window will appear on the screen. Do NOT enter a login name in this prompt - the default for admin is nothing. Simply input the admin password and the web browser will open to the admin page on the router.

As you are configuring a new network security password and protocol be aware of a few things:

1. WEP and WPA are two types of security used on these routers. Of the two, WPA is the more secure, however there may be devices and or clients on your network that do not support WPA. Prior to selecting WPA verify that there are no devices that cannot use that standard.

2. If you are adding a new security profils (password) and retaining the existing login passwords (keys) then your network will continue to function as it has, however if you delete the existing keys (passwords) then you will need to go to each computer/device on the network and update each with the new login information.

Once you have decided upon the security protocol you intend to use (WEP or WPA) you must then do the following:

1. On the router admin page click WIRELESS and then WIRELESS SECURITY.

2. For WEP you will set the Encryption Size and then enter a passphrase. The router will generate a key in hex and you will need to write down this key and provide it to the users on your network. If you change the passphrase later the key will also change and you will need to repeat the above.

3. For WPA, you set the encryption type and then enter a passphrase. Provide this passphrase to the users as that is how they will authenticate using WPA.
