HI, I'm using the Belkin basic router I have few problems here. I cant open http://router/ for the router setting and http://router/wl_main.html for the network name and security setting. I did try to restart and reconnect but still doesn't work. Also the router monitor does not appear as green colour as usual. I mean like I can't change my password or add new devices at all! but I can connect the internet wirelessly. So i wonder what should i do? Many thanks, Michelle

Hi there,Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router. DO NOT
use a wireless connection, use a cable.Open your web browser and type the IP address of the router (by default, the address is
http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left
blank, click Submit.Under Wireless menu. -CLICK on SECURITY -- u will find security KEY
kindly rate this post. thank you

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

Try reseting your Belkin and then configure it again,
To reset the Belkin back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and then power for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

There is an orange light on the front of the router. What does it mean when this light is on all the time? It wasn't on before. It doesn't seem to interfere with anything, but it bothers me since I don't know if someone else is picking up the signal from my router and getting into my computer.

There should be two lights on the front of the router. The top one is your router status light... If this light is blinking orange, then your router cannot detect your modem. The other one is the WPS (Wifi Protected Setup) button light. If this light is solid orange, then that means the button was pushed, but no connetion was created. Either way, there is no indication of an intuder on your network. So, as long as you have setup your wireless security and encryption, you can rest easy.

NAT IS STRICT
Posted by eubankshou... on
STEPS TO CHANGE NAT SETTINGS TO "OPEN":
1- Using your Browser, Log on to your router (by normally typing in the 192.168.1.1 address check your router's manual to see what the default gateway address)
2- If you already know how to log in to your router, then skip this step. If you have never logged on to your router then more than likely you still have the default initial log in credentials (username: admin - Password:1234 ..... Again check your router's manual to be sure). The minute you log in you need to change that password immediately, most network-savvy folks know that 90% of the people out there never reset their router's initial password and they can log on and make any changes to suit their needs, including locking you out of your own router.
3- Once you are logged in, you should be able to find two advance settings (One if for NAT - and the other is for Upnp)
4- Let's start with the NAT setting changes, and we will move on the Upnp at the end. I have personally tried the NAT setting changes and it didn't fix anything, I still had a "Strict" NAT setting on my xbox360, Only when I checked for the Upnp "allow authorized incoming traffic" options when the NAT settings on my XBOX finally came back as "Open" and not "Strict". But I will still explain what I did anyways with the NAT table cause I know it may work for some other routers.
5- So what I did with the NAT setting is this. I located the NAT advanced setting on my router, I click on the NAT (Edit List setting) or whichever link/button you have on your router advanced NAT settings to access the table needed to open certain ports (TCP and UDP - 88 & 3074) .
6- You will need to find out what the static/dynamic (preferably Static) IP address you xbox360 has. To do so, go to the Dashboard, go to the Console settings page, and click on the network settings to see the IP address (should be something like 192.168.1.x). You will need that IP address to enter into your NAT table on your router.
7- Once you got your XBOX's IP address enter it in the NAT Port Forwarding table (From - To - IP address: those are the 3 fields you should have on the table if you are using SUA NAT)
8 - In the first line enter 88 under both "From" and To" fields, then enter the IP address of the xbox in the field where you are to enter an IP address. (this is for UDP port)
9 - Repeat the same step for port TCP (which is 3074)
10- If these changes do not help open your NAT settings, then try the Upnp option. Click on your Upnp Advances settings and click on the "Allow Traffic" option, this is mostly secure because you are only accepting the incoming traffic that matches your outgoing traffic.
