Belkin Wireless Router/Modem

I recently bought a Belkin F5D7632-4, to set it up the instructions said I should type 192.168.2.1 into my web browser and it would start the set-up wizard, but when I do that all I get is "Internet Explorer cannot display website".

I've made sure that the ethernet, phone and power cables are all connected but still can't get it to work.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks

Perhaps check that the ethernet card etc in your pc is working ok by going to control panel, system, hardware, device manager, network adapters?

In order to access the router via its IP address of 192.168.2.1, your network adapter *MUST* have an IP address in the same Subnet (IP address range). If it doesn't have a 192.168.2.x address allocated by the router's DHCP server, temporarily give it a fixed address such as 192.168.2.2 with Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

Once you have everything configured correctly, revert to automatic IP addressing by setting *BOTH* IP address and DNS Server address back to getting their addresses automatically.

Thank you for the help, I am not the best with computers and I have tried what has been suggested but it still doesn't seem to run the router set-up wizard, does anyone have any other ideas?

Many thanks

Try 192.168.0.1.

How are your devices connected?

Is the router you installed giving you internet access?

I will try that other address

The router/modem is connected to the PC with an ethernet cable, and also connected to the telephone line.

No, I can't get it to install at all.

Belkin routers definitely have the IP address 192.168.2.1 - entering 192.168.0.1 won't work.

Typing that address into your web browser will (should) open the router's configuration pages so that you can set it up, but the PC's network adapter MUST have an IP address in the range 192.168.2.2 to 192.168.2.254 with Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
