Belkin wireless Windows 2000 & BT2091 Router

  3DD 17:40 03 Jan 2007


Belkin F5D7000 (ver 6000uk)
BT 2091 router
Windows 2000 sp4

1)I have successfully installed this card to XP sp2 ( thanks to this site and finding that xp does not like using belkin software)

2)I have successfully installed to this router with ethernet using xp.

I now want to install this wireless card to bt2091 with w2k sp4.

I have windows zero configue auto.
I have tried "use the following ip address"

I get to the belkin utility and it says i am connected but on checking ipconfig/all windows is giving an odd ip and subnet not in sequence with other comps 192.168.*.* so no connection.

Other challenge is belkin utility will not save my wep key in "my connections" when i try to put in on the edit tab it goes back to a weird hex key.
Contacted Belkin and you guessed they say it's the BT Router 2091
Would appreciate your help......

Restart the WZC and put the router into pairing mode, it may take some time to pair. Then restart WZC

You can restart the WZC by right clicking it and selecting 'restart'...

Thanks streetwork

I have just got this sorted in a sense that i now have wireless connection >>>>> but!

Bt have changed my wep key from 128 bit wep key acsII (13 digits)
to 64 bit wep hexadecimal wep key (10 digits)

(as i assume the 128bit wep could not be saved in belkin utility.)

which to me is a simpler key to bust....... i haven't gone back to 128 bit yet.

Also they changed my channel from 1 to 11.

Should i change this wep key?

No, leave it as is, the problem is that the belkin and the router need to share the same WEP, 64 is a medium setting for most users, 128 for serious business...
