Hello,

Since I didn't see the exact model listed I will give you a broad description of how it should be configured.

First, Ill give the link to find the manual for you specific model. The model can usually be found on the bottom of your product.

http://www.belkin.com/support/

You will be able to enter the model number in the Product Support Search field and then click the arrow on the right side of that field. Then verify your selection by clicking the model number again in the Select a product field. Once you have done that, you will see a list of download that may include a link for the manual, wireless security configuration information, and also software (firmware) updates for your particular model.

In the manual I would suggest looking at the security sections, especially the WEP security and the MAC address Control section. This should help you setup the router securely.

If these instructions are too broad please supply us with the model number and we can give you specific instructions.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

If I understand this correctly, Your work's IT people setup your router and you need the Security Password to access?

You should ask your work's IT people for the password.
If you are asking how to break that security key, I'm am not sure you will find that info here.

If you dont know the password or have forgotten it, just remove the power and hold the reset in under the bottom of the unit in, reconnect the power and count for 7 sec. lights will flash and the password will be default again. It resets it back to factory settings.

Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
