Initial Setup

Where to Place Your Router

For the best results, place the Router next to your modem in an open location away from large metal objects and magnets such as those found in speakers. Raising the Router above floor level can improve the strength of your wireless signal.

2..Connect your Router to your modem using the cable (already attached).

2

Getting Started

3..Power up your modem by plugging in its power supply. If your modem has a battery backup, it can be reconnected at this time; you may need to hold the reset button for 10 seconds.

4..Power up your Router by plugging in its power supply.

Getting Started

Connect to Your Router

Retrieve the network ID card from the foot of your new Belkin Router.

Can’t find the card? The default network name and password are also printed on the foot of the Router.

Use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to connect to the wireless network shown on the network ID card.

For information on how to connect your wireless devices, please see the “Connect Your Wireless Devices” section on page 21.

When requested, please enter the password (security key) provided on the card.

When your device has connected to the Router, use a browser to visit http://router/. The router homepage will appear.

4

Getting Started

If the page does not load, then try visiting http://192.168.2.1 to see the router homepage.

Click the “Detect my connection” button in green. (If you would rather set up the Router manually, click the “set it up manually” link and proceed to page 11.)

After several moments, your Router should automatically detect your Internet connection and restart. This can take anywhere from 30 seconds to 3 minutes depending on your connection type.

If your Router is unable to establish an Internet connection on its own, you may be asked to restart your modem or provide a username and password if your connection requires one. Follow the on-screeninstructions provided.

5

Getting Started

Once your Router is online, it will determine if there is a firmware update available and offer to install it. Please allow up to 5 minutes for the firmware to update.

If there are no updates available, then setup will proceed.

At the next screen you will be invited to change your network name and password. Re-usingyour previous network name (SSID) and password makes connecting your existing devices to the new router much easier.

6

Getting Started

If you decide to change these settings, then enter the new values and click “Save and Continue.” (Note: The password must be at least 8 characters long.)

If you changed your network name and password, make note of it on the service card located on the foot of the Router. You will then have to connect to the new network.

Please take this opportunity to register your Router. This will help technical support if there is a problem with your Router.

Simply complete each of the required fields and click “Complete Registration.” If you don’t want to register right now, click “Register Later” to proceed.

7

Getting Started

At the next screen you can download optional software that was bundled with your Router.

This screen shows you optional software that is available for your Router, such as the USB software to allow you to print through the Router’s USB port. If you wish to download and install any of these software programs, simply click on the button appropriate for your device.
