This is normal - indicates internet traffic. Don't worry about it so long as all the lights are green. The lights will turn orange if there is a fault of any kind.

Hope that helps!

If your ISP requires a login for you to access the Internet, the router has to be able to pass that information to your ISP server, or it will not be able to access those servers. Your ISP should be well aware of this, as many people use routers for their home networks. The customer service section of your ISP should be able to provide you with this information. They would have had to have given this information to you at some time or you would never have been able to get on to the Internet. If you are having issues getting this information from your customer service people then perhaps you need to request a conversation with one of their supervisors. In all my 30 years of working with computers, and almost as many years of accessing the Internet, I have never heard of an ISP that would not provide you with your own login information. Perhaps it is time to change ISP's.

You can adjust MTU from within the Belkin Router administrative console. You really should not be changing it unless your current ISP gives you a specific MTU setting, otherwise you could disrupt internet connectivity.

Default IP address:
Default admin username: Administrator
Default admin password: <blank>
Be sure to set a password for your router!

This is the address where you change MTU

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.

Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

Using the reset button The location of your range extender's reset button will vary depending on its model. The reset begins once you press and hold thereset button for at least 10 seconds while the range extender is powered ON. The Status Light on the the range extender will momentarily flash and will then begin to blink. When the light becomes solid again, the reset is complete.
Using the web-based setup page
If using the physical button does not work, you can access the range extender's web-based setup page and do the reset from there. Before you begin:
  • Make sure that the wireless computer or device you're using to access the web-based setup page is connected to the same network as the range extender.
  • You need to identify the IP address that your router has assigned to your range extender. Locate this by accessing your router's DHCP Client table. Once you have the range extender's assigned IP address, use it to access your range extender's web-based setup page.
  • Alternatively, you can enter "" in the web browser's Address bar if your range extender has NOT detected a DHCP server in your network.
Step 1:
In the web-based setup page of the range extender, go to Utilities and select Restore Factory Defaults. QUICK TIP: You may be prompted to log in with your range extender's administrator password. If you have not set any, simply leave the field blank and click on Submit. Step 2:
Click on the Restore Factory Defaults button. Your Belkin range extender should now be restored to its factory default settings.

alright figured out a way to speed up the connections

under firewall - Disable it. Must be slowing down everything. Just make sure you have at least windows firewall (XP) or something else as you are directly connected to the internet now.

Let me know if this helps anyone.

Belkin... | Answered on Feb 15, 2019

If you have never changed the default password, you can find it printed on the label on the bottom of the router.
If you have changed the password before, you will need to reset the router back to factory defaults. There is probably a small button on the back of the router labelled "reset" that you will need to hold down for 10 seconds and release. To push this button, you will likely need the tip of a pen or the end of a paperclip bent into a straight line.
If you still need more assistance, please post the specific model so we can find a user manual for it online. If this solved your problem, please don't forget to rate this

Did you mean to recover a Linux OS.Routers don,t use kernerls.

Belkin Wireless... | Answered on Jan 11, 2019

Please open the configuration page of your router by typing your router's IP address on a browser's address bar. Router's IP address is the default gateway when you check the IP address on the command prompt. As soon as you are on the login page, type the user name and password. Look for the wireless settings tab. SSID is the router's wireless network name. Replace the SSID of the name you want for your wireless network and apply the changes.
