Belkin wireless router
I have this running with my xp but when I try to change any settings it asks me for a password that I don't remember creating.
How can i find this out.
Many thanks, Allan.

Tried them both, along with Password, password, Pass and pass etc.
Really annoying as I don't remember creating a password.

There is a tiny reset button on the back . . about the size of a ball point tip . . press it for a count of 10 and it will reset to the default settings . . You will then have to recreate any custom settings you had before.

I was hoping I wouldn't have to reset my router as I had a nightmare getting it all set up the 1st time.

Do you still have the manual for the router?

Usually it has in there the default password. Possibly, the password can be blank (i.e. no password at all).

the first thing you keyed in the password form before you created any password. that should do the trick.
if worst comes to worst, you'll have to reset. the setup wouldn't take you long.

it's pretty obvious that someone had created the password for you. if nothing works just reset it.

Don't type anything in for username, just type admin in the password field.

I ended up resetting it in the end. I have the router and dongle pairing again but I can't connect to the net using wireless, I've needed to plug my old aol modem back in.
Everything looks sound apart from it not registering on the net. pppeo miniport or something.
Why does it work with cable but not wireless though?
oh and when I input the ip address in the browser, it doesn't come up anymore either.

why can't I connect with a WAN miniport PPPoE through wireless.

This all used to work before I reset it earlier today.

In any case how can I set up another connection so it works through wireless?

To let you all understand i created a shortcut so I wouldn't have to use aol's homepage and browser.

Go online and check the
Go online and check the Belkin website for a user manual for your model..When you reset the router you also reset it back to its default ip address...probably something like 192.168.0.1..check the ip address of your system..its probaly not even close right now..you may have to set a static ip address on your system in order to get to the router config..

How do I do this please?

And also, why doesn't my router open up when I enter the ip address in a web browser?

Try this
go into your network settings for your network card..

In the center where it lists the connection protocols..(i.e. tcp/ip, client for ms networks etc.) go down to the tcp/ip settings & click properties. Instead of having it obtain an ip address automatically enter one in in the same range as the router now has..(again go to belkins site and download the manual for your model) set the default gateway to (example 192.168.0.1) or whatever the ip address the router defaults to..match the subnet as well probably 255.255.255.0..then you should be able to get to the router thru your browser

You cant get to it now probably because you are on a different network than the browser is..if you received an ip address from your isp you most definitely are.
