20 Most Recent Belkin Basic Wireless Router Questions & Answers


If you have never changed the default password, you can find it printed on the label on the bottom of the router.
If you have changed the password before, you will need to reset the router back to factory defaults. There is probably a small button on the back of the router labelled "reset" that you will need to hold down for 10 seconds and release. To push this button, you will likely need the tip of a pen or the end of a paperclip bent into a straight line.
If you still need more assistance, please post the specific model so we can find a user manual for it online. If this solved your problem, please don't forget to rate this

After you connect your router to your computer via an ethernet cable, enter the router's home page by entering 192.168.1.1 on a browser. Once there, look for DNS and enter the open google dns numbers.

Try reseting your Belkin and then configure it again,

To reset the Belkin back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and then power for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

You could be experiencing a service outage; everything OK on your end, not OK at the provider end. I find it happens during severe weather.

Your MT 882 modem most likely has a DHCP Server that will interfere with the ip address of the router. Did you plug the Router directly into the laptop then go to dos prompt and type in ipconfig/renew . Or reboot the laptop !
Then type in 192.168.2.1 into browser
You need to work out the IP address of your 882 modem and then change the dhcp server leases on it to start at 20 like it might be 10.0.0.1 to 1.0.0.254 or it could be 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254 .
if you are planning on using both devices on the network !
Make the Modem DHCP start at 192.168.2.20 to 192.168.2.254 and then make the Belkin router / modem ip address be 192.168.2.2 and the 882 modem 192.168.2.1 if you plan on using the two devices together on the network disable the belkin dchp server.
if you are using just the belkin then the reboot or ipconfig/ renew will be all you need .

Did you change the WEP key on your computers? If not, they remember the old WEP key, and when they try to connect, the router won't let them because they don't have the new WEP key.

The exact instructions will vary depending on the operating system.
In windows 7 or earlier, you should be able to click on wireless icon in your system tray (near the bottom right-hand corner). Find your network in the list, the right-click and choose "Properties" and make your security changes.

Windows 8 or later? Try this:
