Cannot connect my Mac Pro to the internet via my Belkin wireless
I am unable to connect my Mac Pro computer to the internet via my wireless G router as it request a password which I cannot remember or do not have. The Mac Pro is fitted with airport wireless card and it is working when tested on Aoole wireless systems but requires the password to connect to internet via Belkin Router.
Help me solve this problem so that i can connect to the internet using my Mac Pro.

With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).

Make sure the IP of the Router and the IP of the MAC is in the same scope.
Typically the router acts as DHCP-server and distributing ip-adresses automatically, when a computer is connected. But the the IP can also be set manually.
Hello, friends, I understand this is a common problem with the Belkin router. Don't worry just follow my instructions and you will be helped Restart = take out the power cable and wait for 20 sec then plug it back
Restart the modem (cable/DSL modem)
Now restart the router and computer also and wait for 2 min.
See if this gets you Belkin wireless router online.
if it does not work then we have to try these steps -
Fix Belkin Router -
First, you need to unplug the Belkin wireless router from the modem and now connect the computer to your modem with a cable Just to see you are getting the internet.
Now connect the modem to the router using an internet cable to the internet port(Ethernet port).
If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.
You have to go into the setup for the router. Most default to the 192.168.1.1 IP address. You would type that address into your internet browser and hit enter. Then you will be asked for a name and password. If you have your belkin manual it will tell you the default name and password. Once in the settings you can change the password. You can also turn off SSID broadcasting, enable the highest level of security that your particular router supports in conjunction with your computer and enable MAC authentication. If you enable MAC authentication you have to type in the MAC address for each device you wish to have access to the router.
I have a Mac Pro and a Belkin F5D 7230-4 Router. The Mac links to the WiFi but will not go on to the internet. The Router works fine with a wired PC and other wireless PCs. I have updated the Belkin with the latest Firmware but it does not help. I have tried powering down the Router and Modem
My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)
One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless
or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.
There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.
(01) Which of the following is your router? -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet? YES
(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please) only this machine is connected but it is by.... (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)
(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
HP Pavilion dv2500
(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk
(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on? NO
I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
