Enter client device pin


The client device PIN is a WPS method to connect to the network
I would suggest you disable the WPS feature and go with standard WPA or WEP

To get the PIN :
Turn off / Disable wifi in the laptop
  1. - Hardwire the computer and router
  1. - Open the router setup page ( http://192.168.2.1 )
  1. - Click wi fi Protected setup on the left side
  1. - Scroll down a little and you can find the router PIN
  1. - This is the number that you need to enter in the device
To Enable WPA Security in the wireless network
Turn off / Disable wifi in the laptop
  1. - Hardwire the computer and router
  1. - Open the router setup page ( http://192.168.2.1 )
  1. - Click wi fi Protected setup on the left side
  1. - Leave the password blank and click submit
  1. - Disable Wi Fi Protected setup at the top and click Apply Changes
  1. - Click Security under wireless on the left side
  1. - Leave the password blank and click submit
  1. - Change the security mode to WPA
  1. - Type a password
  1. - Save the changes.

My mac laptop can't connect to belkin n300 router wirelessly


There is a small piece of paper underneath the router with original passwords, and the default was WPA security.
Hold the reset in the back till it cycles to remove any custom settings.

I'm trying to set up a new laptop to my belkin router


When you first setup a wireless router you need to connect the wireless router to the computer with a LAN cable.
Then you open a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and on the address bar you type the IP configuration address of the wireless router eg. for Belkin wireless router it is http://192.168.2.1
Enter the default login name and password.
You should change the password and you should setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.
