Change of current belkin N150 password.

Hello guys. I just bought my Belkin N150 Wireless Router and I have a little problem. Everything is fine, it just works perfect, but it seems that I can't change the default password (which is <blank> btw) set to the router. In System Settings there are 3 options about the password change.

-Type in current password (I left it blank, but nothing...Also I tried admin but again nothing...)

-Type in new password (well i typed the new password :P)

-Confirm new password (I confirmed!)

I don't know if the problem is in the first setting or if there is another problem that doesnt let me to change password (btw when I apply the changes it says that changes were succesful, but still someone can login to the router without a password...). Thanks in advance!

Nortel IPSEC VPN unable to connect via a Belkin N1 Wireless Router

I recently bought a Belkin N1 Wireless router, F5D8231-4 v4000, to replace a Belkin 802.11b router. Hooked everything up and got it running with no problems, except now my Nortel VPN client will not connect for work. I am able to access the Internet from the laptop but when I try to connect the VPN client it times out. I have put the Laptop in the DMZ and I have disabled the firewall but nothing works. Also I can ping the VPN switch via the domain name and IP address. Belkin Tech support has been useless so anything anyone knows would be grately appriciated!

The telephone line doesn't connect to the router. The telephone line goes to the modem which is provided to you by your internet provider. Then an ethernet cable is connected from the modem to the router.

The modem allows the internet connection to be active, The router is used to distribute the Internet to create a network.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet

I have a Belkin Wireless N router and an Embarq 660 modem. I have gone to the Belkin URL 192.68.2.1 and have verified the settings. I changed the router's IP address to 192.68.2.2 to make certain that there is no IP address conflicts between the router and the embarq modem. I have restarted my laptop (Windows Vista OS), released/renewed the IP address on my laptop and still the Belkin router does not recognize the connection to the internet.

The yellow ethernet cable is running from the 660 modem to the router and then I have tried both using a network cable as well as a wireless connection and nothing. No internet.

If I run the yellow ethernet from the modem directly to my laptop I'm online and surfing.

HELP!

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Do you have a user name and password to connect to the internet?
If you have that then you will need to set the router to PPPOE connection.
If not , then you will need to set the router to DHCP mode.
First make sure that your computer will be able to go online through the modem. It is very simple and you don't need the CD.
You can set up the router like the DSL connection.
