Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router
Hi all, I'm new to this wireless router thing, and I hope someone would help me out, as I have no clue why it doesn't work. The wireless router I got is
Belkin N wireless Router (F5D8233tw4)
Here is my situation, I have one desktop computer (Win XP) hook up direct to this wireless router, and this computer had no problem to get online.
I'm using this router to network one other notebook (Win Vista), and a Playstation 3. Before I set any security password, both of these devices can detect my Belkin router, and able to connect. However, once I add the password security in WPA within the Belkin software, then none of these devices can connect again. On my laptop, it's able to detect the router, but then it ask for Login ID and password, I use the password that I set on the router software WPA, and try the login ID with my SSID, my IP address and none of these work. What is the login ID on the notebook when connecting to the router?? Also, I try to make some changes on the Channel and SSID screen (change Bandwidth) on the Belkin software, but after the change, my SSID is no longer there, it will be missing even I try to add back myself later. I try the MAC Address filtering as an alternative security device, I add it under MAC Address Control page, I enter the Mac address and press Add, and there is no new address space for me to add another one? I thought I can add many MAC address allow? PLs help, as both myself and my wife would need to use the laptop and desktop for work, thanks!
