Setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I make it a secured internet connection. I am on the internet ok, but the connection is unsecured.. I need to know where to go to secure it with a password.
Re: setting up a belkin n wireless router. How do I
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.

if you want to remove security key, just reset the router by pressing the hole or reset button and then type in brower 192.168.1.1 and access in your router.then you can assign new security if you want or leave without security. just connect your computer by hard wire and by same wire other end of this wire will connect to router. don't need to do anythig. computer n router knows best everything else what to do.
Connect the router directly via lan to your computer.
goto setup of the router: usuallly via the ip-adress of your router (see manual, usually: 192.168. ***.*)
Now look at the network security-settings .
configure that wireless router type the default ip in the browser e.g.
http://192.168.1.1 and enter the default userid admin and passwrod admin and than enable the wep and disable the dhcp if you dosent require to connect more system to your wireless network. enable the wireless security and enter the ssid code in it. This will secure your wireless connection to get access from outsider's ok
This is possibly caused by your firewall or the wireless security (wpa/wep) on the router if you have set it up.
First of all, if you can connect to the internet via a cabled connection the problem is going to be with the way you've set the router up.
If you've setup wireless security on the router, have you also set it up for your wireless adaptor?.
I suggest you try to connect to the internet via cable to start with, if this works try to connect wirelessly with your firewall off.
If all else fails start from the beginning again.
You can directly connect your computer to the router thorugh the routers "internet" port and then re-run setup. OR you can type the IP address of the router into your address bar (the default is tipically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and then enter the router username and password (I believe the Belkin default is username:"Admin" password:"Password") in the admin control planel look for a "wireless security" tab. You can then define your wirelss security settings there. Just remember to configre the same settings on all devices that will connect to the router.
