Hi! I just had this same problem and it was driving me crazy but I finally found it!

If you can access the router configuration page: (with your admin name and password) and look under the wireless tab... scroll down and it will say "if your client asks for the router's pin enter this number" and will have the pin listed for you.

Would have been great if they'd made it a bit easier but very happy I found it.

Hope that helps.

Im trying to find my belkin pin number so i can have internet in my new laptop,...where can i find this?

Are you trying to connect to the wireless network on a WINDOWS VISTA / 7 computer? Sometimes on the windows vista computer , it will ask you for the PIN number when you try to connect to the wireless network. On the same window at the bottom you will find the option " I want to connect to the network or I want to enter the key manually". If you click on that option , it will ask you for the security key.
If you don't know the security key, then you will need to check the settings of the router. You will need to open the router set up page where you can check all the wireless settings of teh router. If you want, you can also find the PIN on the wireless settings page of the router.
If you are trying to connect any other wireless device to the network and it is asking you for the PIN then you will need to open the set up page of the router and under wireless settings you will find PIN.

How do laptops connect to my wireless router?

Wireless routers were configured with some security PIN in order to avoid unauthorized connections to your router. To connect to your router, just providing the PIN will do and no need of complex settings. Contact the service engineer who configured your router last time and tell him to configure your router with whatever preference you need. you can also set it in public mode so it wont ask anything and so anyone can connect into your router but this is not secure at all.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Where is the pin number located on the linksys router

When you try to connect to the wireless network on VISTA / 7 computer then it will ask you for the PIN number. on the same window at the bottom you will find the option " I don't want to configure, I want to enter the key manually " OR " I don't know the PIN I just want to connect ". You will find this option at the bottom in very small letters. If you click on it, it will go to next step. on the next step you it will ask you for the security key if the network is secured.
If you don't know the key then you will need to access the router set up page.

I got my old D-Link Di624 out and reconnected. Now I need help!

On one of the computer that has connection to the router, type in the browser's address bar. The router's config page will come up. Since you're going to be using this page a lot, you might want to bookmark the page for easy access.

On the config page, select "HOME" tab and then select "WIRELESS" on the left column. Find Authentication: WPA-PSK and select that. Provide a "passphrase" and make sure you confirm it. It can be any phrase you want to use. Check apply and you're done setting up the router.

Now you have to setup your computer's to match exactly the same authentication. you should see all the available network. Select default network and then click on configure. In the authentication pull down menu list, select WPA-PSK, then select "authentication config". When the advanced security settings comes up, in the WPA PASSPHRASE field, type the PASSPHRASE you used earlier in the router's config. Hit OK and that's it for that page.

Now go back to the utility page and find profile in the middle column. you should see a "default" profile. Select that and click on "connect" on the right column. If you see a circle on the small icon just to the left of default, then you've secured your computer.

Basically, whatever you do to the router's config, you have to do exactly the same to the NIC's utility page. If it fails and you have to restore default on the router, there's a small hole in the back of the router. Press a small pin into it for 10 seconds and it will restore the default setting, that is, no security of any kind.

Please rate this a fixya.

My wireless settings got changed and need to re configure

You need to make sure that the settings on you laptop match settings on your router. You can log in to your router by opening your browser (from computer connected to router) and type in the address. If you haven't been in it before the user name should be "admin" and the password is "password". Look for the wireless section and write down setting and enter them in the config for the wireless on your laptop. If you have a friend that may be a little more experienced ask for help. Not to infer that you can't do it I just don't know your expertise.

Can not connect to internet using wireless

Did you input the WEP key? I will assume you are using Windows XP. So go to control panel, network connections and then go to the wireless connection and then select view wireless connections double click on the one with the highest strength, which should be your 2wire. When it asks for the network security key type in the numbers that are located on the sticker on the bottom of your router between the [########] brackets.
