Maybe your router is not using the 192.168.2.1 ip address anymore. the only way to enable the security is to access the router's page but if you want you can run the installation cd again since it'll ask you if you want to secure your network but you need reinstall everything just like you installed it out of the box.
or you can just check the ip address of your router.

here are the steps

- use a hardwired computer and access the command prompt (for windows computers, click on start, then click on run, then type cmd)
- it'll prompt you now with a black screen, on the blinking cursor, type ipconfig/all
- take note of the default gateway address that's the ip address being used by your router
- enter the default gateway's address on address bar of your browser and it shoould prompt you for the username and password, enter the username and password of your router
- it'll prompt you now with the roouter's page, click on the wireless part and set up your security

hope this'll help you

ciao!

I CANT ACCES TO THE BELKIN PAGE , I NEED SECURITY IN MY ROUTER


First you need to know the access ADMIN Username and Password for your router?
If you have the access then you can configure your router manually.

Identify what IP address of your gateway.
>Start>CMD>IPCONFIG
(check what IP address you have in gateway. use that ip address to access your router)
example.
>launch internet explorer then type the IP address into the address bar.
>http://192.168.1.1

you will be redirected to a page will it asked for username and password.
then you need to enter the information.
if you dont know the admin un and pw contact your ISP.
but most of the default UN and PW is
Username: admin
Password: admin

once you able to get into the GUI of your router then go to configuration for the PW to lock your network.

On belkin surf router clicked on set as access point. then i tried to change it but my computer cant get internet from the router so i cant access the belkin homepage. can u help


the only thing you need to do is reset your router to go the IP address original 192.168.2.1
because when you setup it as a access point the router change the Ip Address.

restore the router to factory default settings, please do the following:

1. Unplug the router's power supply
2. Press and hold the reset button on theback of the router
3. Keep the reset button depressed and, at the same time, plug the power supply back in
4. Keep the reset button depressed for another 10 seconds
5. Release the reset button

do this for 3 times and you will acces your router.


Good luck

Hi, i just cant get online wireless, i have to pass my belkin and plug straight into my laptop.


You need to configure the Belkin wireless settings and the configure the wireless card in the laptop with the router's wireless settings.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Configuration of Belkin Wireless Router F5D6231


Whoops, found it. http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/f5d6231-4_manual.pdf

If I were setting this up for myself or a customer, I'd keep the Airtel IP's and let it be the DHCP server. To do this, you pick a fixed IP address for the Belkin, something like 192.168.1.251. Log into the Belkin and change the LAN IP address to that and turn off DHCP. Those instructions start on pdf page 34.

Now, plug one of the 4 ports into the Airtel, and from a computer connected to the network type in 192.168.1.251 in Internet Explorer. It should get you to the Belkin where you finish setting it up for wireless security and password from page 38.

You won't use the WAN port.

I am trying to secure my belkin wireless G router


WEP/WPA is an encryption you can enable on your wireless router to keep others off your wireless network as well as secure communications between users and the wireless side of the router.

A copy of the manual can usually be downloaded from the manufacturers website. Looking at the bottom of the router will give you model number, serial number, and version information you'll need to get the manual.

Each router is a bit different then the next, most come with a cd that will help you setup security. But all of them I have seen so far have web interfaces you can access by typing in the 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 ip address in your address bar.

Most default logins are admin/admin or admin with no password
