It can be that your iphone doesnt work with 2.5ghz but maybe 5Ghz. Try setting up your router with 5Ghz and see if that will help

This depends on if your computer is hard wired or wireless. If it is hard wired you sometimes have to reset the router, pull the plug wait 30 seconds then plug it back in also do this for the computer that is not connecting, this will start the hand shaking process over. If it is wireless you may have to reset the wireless adapter. the easy way to do that is to hover the mouse icon over the wifi icon on the bottom right of your screen now right click on that and select troubleshoot problems, this will reset it. If this fails then on your start on the bottom left normally open that and in the run box type cmd now hover your mouse over the cmd and right click and select run as administrator a black box will open in there type netsh winsock reset and hit enter after doing that you will have to reboot your machine, hope you get back online..

There are two possible solutions, depending on which password you can't remember. If you remember the password to log into the router, you can go to the wireless security page and see the wireless password (you may have to uncheck the "obscure password" box to see it). If the password you can't remember is the one needed to log into the router, I believe your only recourse is to hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds to restore the factory defaults. NOTE: you will then have to re-configure the router as if you had just taken it out of the box.

Steps to find a WEP key:

1. Open a browser (the program used to access the internet).

2. Type the following into the address bar of the browser. If using a Belkin router type "". The address bar is the area where webpages are typed. It is important when typing in that there is NO www. before the numbers, but do put http://

3. If all has gone well this should open a page that says Belkin.

3. There may be the need to login. When using a Linksys if you don't know what the username and password are it may still be the factory settings, and so enter in "admin" for the username and "password" for the password. If using a Belkin router, the factory settings often come with no password, so just click submit without typing in a password.

4. Click on a) "Wireless" or b) "settings".

5. Click on a) "Wireless security" or b) "wireless settings".

6. There should be a page with a WEP key listed.

7. Write it down/copy and use as you wish!

Reset Belkin WEP key or WPA pass phrase

Belkin... • Answered on Jun 29, 2016

You will have to connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer. Enter in your browser to log into the router. Your passphrase will be listed under "wireless settings" or similar.

If you can't log into the router, you'll have to do a hard reset. Look for a very small button on the back or side of the router and, while it is powered up push the reset button in for 10 seconds or so untill the lights on the front flash on and off. You can then get into the router using the above method. The default password is left blank. You will then need to go through setup and create your own pass phrase.

If you need further assistance post back to this thread.

Hello: The Belkin F5D7231-4 has no password by default. If you changed the password and can't remember it, you can reset the router to default settings by pressing and holding the recessed reset button on the back of the router for at least ten seconds.
