If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

The router's encryption (password) is configured in the router's wireless settings.
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. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

Belkin router problems


Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password


Thanks for using Fixya.

It's asking for the security word that you entered into the router when you set up wireless security. You will need to enter both the wireless SSID, and the security key to make the system work.

Hi my friend has a belkin g802.11g router for his laptp and only 3 of the lights are on the etreme right isnt working his pc is telling him he has connection to the internet but its not letting him connect...


the router must be connected properly to the pc and set up to function properly first. Usually the pc is plugged into port 1 while the internet connection is plugged into the main "Green" labeled port which is spaced further away than the other 4 ports. If that's done properly then you have a few software issues depending on the ISP he is using. For instance, Road Runner doesn't really care what you use, however Yahoo DSL has issues that must be configured to make the modem communicate properly with the router. Does he see the wireless network with his laptop? Is he using 2 pc's, one hard wired to router and a laptop or just the laptop? If he's using just a laptop then you have a specific setup procedure that must be followed, contact the mfg of the modem, belkin's usually pretty good with walking you through the setup.
