    To Whomever Tech Geniuses That Have a Few Moments:

    PROBLEM:
    I'm trying to set up my Belkin G Wireless Router* (Model:F5D7234-4 v3)* as a secure wireless home network. I have it plugged into my Touchstone Telephony Cabel Modem (Model: TM502G/CT). It is emitting a wireless signal which I can connect to, but, ONLY as an unsecured network. Once I connect to the network, it asks: "Type the PIN from the Router* to configure it. I have located the PIN entered it only to have it say that it "Could not configure the Router.*"

    NOVICE SOLUTIONS:
    I've verified the device PIN. I've rebooted the device and the cable modem. However, it will NOT allow me to configure the device so that I can secure the network.

    HELP ME!?!?!?!?!
    If someone could PLEASE help me get a secure network established I'd really appreciate not having Google doing any drive by peeks into my internet activity with their Google Earth vehicles.

    THANK YOU FOR YOU TIME AND ATTENTION.

    Have a great day!!

    I don't see the point to that "pin" stuff, so I just disable anything in the router having to do with that. Then in the router's wireless section set the Encryption (or Security) Mode to WPA(2)-PSK and assign a strong passphrase (which mainly means don't use a dictionary word). Then when you try to connect a computer just enter the same passphrase.
