Re: secure wireless belkin g router
What is the exact model number of your router?
To access the router's set up page, you have to get the default gateway you see under status of your local area conection then type it on the address bar. You will then get a username/password screen, enter ur password and it will redirect you to the set up page where you can enable wireless security.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access.
The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key.
The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.
You need to install the serial number in your computer off of the router, clcik on diagnose and when it comes up with enter pass phrase input your serial number ans you should be connected. Hope this helps and thanks for using fix-ya.

Have you configured the Belkin wireless router?
You need to configure the Belkin using a 10baseT network cable first before you configure the wireless card.
To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the Belkin IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the Admin password, change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast, setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) and for added protection use MAC address filtering.
hi i would suggest to access your routers setuppage and set the channel to channel 11.
make sure also if your wireless network is secured, type the correct key those things are case sensitive.
to access the routers setuppage go to a computers that is connected to your linksys router (wired) then launch IE on the address bar type 192.168.1.1(this is the routers ip) then it will ask you for username and password for the username dont type any thing for the password type admin.
when your on the setuppage click on wireless tab. while on the wireless page set the channel to 11.
after that click apply or save settings on the page.
then after that try to connect to your wireless network on your laptop.
