"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

exactly you want to know?

here is the user manual:

There are a number of steps here.
First connect the cable or dsl modem to the router using a ethernet/network cable. The cable connection is, I believe, yellow on that model.

Plug your computer into the router using another ethernet cable and putting it into one of the four open ports.

Next login into the modem using your web browser. To login you use the ip address of the router - usually  it is Just type that into the address bar at the top of the browser.

From here several steps can be taken. But first what kind of connection are you looking for? Wireless? Wired?

Assuming you are trying to get wireless. When you go to the router page it should prompt you for a password. I believe it is blank by default so just click submit. (change your password as soon as you can!)

Next Go to DNS on the left side menu under "Internet WAN" - Likely "Automatic from ISP" should be checked.

Next go to "MAC Address Cloning" If the computer you are using is the one you setup the cable or DSL modem with, then click clone. (If not, we will have to get your MAC address from the correct computer)

On Left side menu "Channel and SSID" will allow you to setup a name for your wireless connect. Like "sanjeevkmrs's internets". The default options for everything else should be sufficient at the moment.

Next on the side menu :      Security. It is important to do this. Pick WPA-PSK for Type, then WPA-PSK+WPA2-PSK for Authentication (this is a better security protocal than WEP).

Enter a Pass cord underneath that to share with all wireless users you wish to grant access.

That should get you started. Once you have finished with the wireless setup. Remove the ethernet cord that connects your computer and the router. Then (assuming you are using a windows PC) go to the wireless connections in your system tray and try to connect to your wireless internet. It should prompt you for the password you previously assigned it.

I hope that helps. Hopefully I haven't missed any steps.
It can be a bit difficult to troubleshoot but let me know if you have issues.

If you or another person has tried to configure the settings of the Belkin router, you will need to restore the router to factory defaults. This will ensure that any previous tinkering with router settings do not interfere with the following instructions.

To restore to factory defaults, plug in the router's AC adapter only. Some of the lights, including the "Power/Ready" LED will be lit. Take a modified paper clip or another sofisticated instrament with similar attributes and stick in it the little hole labeled "reset" on the back of the router. Press and hold the inset "reset" button with the paper clip for at least 10 seconds. When you stop pressing the reset button, you will notice the "Power/Ready" light on the front blink and then return to a solid state. If done correctly, the router settings should be returned to how they were out of the box.

Now place the router near your DSL modem or cable modem provided by your Internet Services Provider.

Whether or not you will be connecting to the router only via wireless connection, you will need the network cable provided with the Belkin router to properly setup the router. Connect the cable to the matching port on the back of your desktop computer or on the side or back of your laptop computer. Connect the other end to one of the ports on the back of the router labeled "Wired" with a little picture of a computer with a 1,2,3, or 4 in the screen.

Also, there should be a separate network cable coming from the DSL modem or cable modem. This may have been previously connected to a single computer for Internet connectivity. Leave one end of the cable plugged into the DSL / cable modem then plug the other end into the port on the back of the Belkin router labeled "Modem".

Open Internet Explorer on the computer physically connected to the router. Type only "" in the address bar. You don't need any "http://" or "www" before it.
Hit the "enter" key on the keyboard.

The homepage of the Belkin router should appear. Click "Login". A "log in" page should appear. Leave the password blank and click "Submit".

The main "router setup" window should appear.

In the menu on the left, click on the subtitle "Connection Type" under the heading "Internet WAN".

The main window will now have mutiple options, click to select "Dynamic". Click "Next".

Most ISPs don't require a "host name", so just click "Apply Changes".

Before enabling wireless mode on the router, you should change / create a password for the router. In the menu, click "System Settings" underneath "Utilities".

Select "administator password" or "change password" or something like that. Enter a password of your choice in "New password" and again in "confirm password". Click "Apply Changes".

After changing the password, you may have to login again. If so, type in your new password and click "Submit".

In the menu on the left, click "Channel and SSID" underneath "Wireless".

The SSID name will identify your router. You can change it to anything, i.e. "Billy-Bob's Access Point".

For Wireless Mode, select "802.11b+g+n".

For Bandwidth, select "20MHz/40MHz Auto".

Click "Apply Changes".

Click "Logout" at top right.

Now you should be able to connect any computer wired or wireless(if it has the capability) to the Internet.

This assumes that all computers are set to obtain IP addresses and DNS addresses automatically.

In the case that your ISP has assigned you a static IP address, requires a host name, or requires a PPPoE login; these instructions will not be sufficient.
