Question about Belkin Basic Wireless Router

1 Answer

I am trying to get to the site that allows me to change the password and network name on my Belkin. When googling this I read to put http://192.168.2.1 into a google search but that didn't lead to the home page the instructions tell me to do. All I am trying to do is change the network name and password to my own choice and not the one that came with the Belkin wireless. Hope you can help me. Nicole

Look at your router data plate and then Google "[your router name] default user name and password". You should be able to find the defaults and use them. They should be in your manual or in the documentation/setup program on your CD also.

I need to reset my router password.


You will need to log into your router with the IP Address, userid and password, then you can change the router password.

You do realize that the Router Password just lets you get into the router to make changes to it.

The Wireless Password is what allows people to connect their wireless devices or laptops to the internet via the router. If you need to change the wireless password then once you get into the router go to the wireless tab or wireless security and change it.

The manual will give you the router's IP address, default userid and password. Also it might be on a sticker on the side or bottom of the router. The wireless password or network key might be on it also.

If you need the manual go to Belkin's website.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Belkin Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals throughout the site.



Below is a direct link to their site where you just plug in your model number.

Belkin f5d8631-4 need to connect to sky but cant access config


you need the username and password from provider,then
Connecting to the Internet
  1. Choose a convenient location to begin installing your router, such as an open floor space or table. This does not need to be the permanent location of the router. For wireless routers, it may be necessary to re-position the unit after installing it as the signals may not reach all areas needed.
  2. Unplug the power to your Internet modem.
  3. Power down your computer(s).
  4. Plug the power in to your router.
  5. Connect your Internet modem to the router. The cable plugs into the router jack named "WAN" or "Internet".
  6. Connect one computer to the router. Even if the router is a wireless model, connect this first computer to the router via a network cable.
  7. Turn on the computer.
  8. From the computer connected to the router, open your web browser. Enter the router's address, http://192.168.2.1, and press Enter on your keyboard.
  9. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
    To configure the router to connect to the Internet, you must enter information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) into the "Connection Type" section in the left-hand column under the "Internet WAN" heading of the router's configuration page. If using DSL Internet, you may need to enter the PPPoE username and password. Likewise, if you have been issued a static IP address by your provider, the static IP fields (including network mask and gateway) must also must be set in the router.
  10. If this is a wireless router, change the network name (referred to as SSID). While the router comes to you with a network name set at the factory, you may want to use something more familiar for your network. Read Changing the router's wireless channel and SSID for a description of this process.
  11. Plug the power back into your Internet modem.
  12. Verify that this computer can connect to the Internet properly. Open a new web browser and visit a few Internet sites such as Google.com or Yahoo.com.
  13. Finally, configure additional network security features as desired to guard your systems against Internet attackers.

How does one setup a belkin g router. Instead of a secure connection. For the user to have to input a password to make connection


First you have to access the administrator page for your router. In the address bar where you usually type in a URL (like google.com) instead put in 192.168.2.1 and hit Enter. This will open up a page that lets you change your wireless settings. On the left side of the page, find Wireless and click it. This will open your wireless configuration. Change your SSID (that will be the name you give your network) to something you would like it to be called. You'll also want to put in the security settings which will be the PIN needed to access your network. I could walk you through this step by step but instead I'll give you the link that explains it far more thoroughly than I could. http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p74880-d_f5d9230-4_manual.pdf
You'll want to start at page B49. There probably isn't much need to read through everything in the manual to do what you want. When it comes to your PIN, make sure you either write it down or make it something easy to remember but not easy to guess.
Please keep in mind that you WILL be setting up a secure connection in order for someone to get on your network with a password.

Wireless connection


You probably need to goto your routers web page and change the name there.

While you are there it is a good idea to setup at least WEP security if you have not done so already.

To get there, usually, while you are connected, you can look at the properties of your connection, and get your default gateway's IP address.

In a web browser, put this IP number of your default gateway into the browser's address bar and click go. It should load your router's administration web page. If it has a password and you dont know what that is then it is probably the default password.

To get the default password for your router, into Google search for example if you has a linksys router, search Google for "linksys default password" this should bring up the default password for a linksys router. usually a combination of "admin/password".

Once logged into the administration web page, the network name is listed under "SSID".

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.
