BELKIN WIRELESS ROUTER SETUP WITH COMPUTER –
It is the simplest way of setting up the Belkin router with your modem.
– Using the internet cable connect your modem with Belkin router as I have explained at the beginning of this post.
– Use the Ethernet cable from the first port of your router (LAN 1) to connect your computer.
– Type the 192.168.2.1 in the browser and open the router setup page and allow the modem to identify your internet connection type.
Note – If you have the PPPoE connection then ask for username and password from your internet provider. However, if the connection type is DHCP type, then you don’t need the credentials.
When you are at Belkin router setup page, it allows you to make your connection secure by setting up the username and password.
Now, go to the wireless settings and disable the “Guest Network” (unless you decide to offer free Wi-Fi to everyone who walks in your store or office), also change the password if you like.
You can also edit the network name that will display on your screen. Once you are done with all these changes, kindly save all settings and reboot/restart your computer and router.
