New password / network key for belkin wireless

  catherine2008 20:30 29 Nov 2008

I have a belkin n wireless modem router and I have forgotten the password/network key to connect it to the Internet. I was wondering if there was anyway to set a new password or overide it?

If you go into the router's configuration pages (by typing its IP address of into your web browser and also its Username/Password which should be in the manual), you can then check the WEP/WPA encryption key in the wireless security settings. If the key is "masked" with dots or asterisks so that it cannot be read, you can always create a new key. Make a note of it so that you can enter it in the PC when "Connecting" to the wireless network.
