Setup Belkin Wireless G Router without CD

Note: This article will show you how to  setup Belkin router manually and connect your computer to the wireless network, you can always use  installation CD for configuration, if that fails you go through the manual process.

Basic step before proceeding with any of the troubleshooting steps lets power-cycle  modem and router

  1. Unplug the power cord of your Internet Modem
  2. Power off the router by  unplugging the Belkin router from the power outlet (electric wall socket) as well. (IMPORTANT: Leave both the devices off for at least 60 seconds)
  3. Then power on Internet modem first by plugging power cord back in and wait for 60 seconds until all the lights gets steady.
  4. Once you see all the lights lit on the modem power on your Belkin router by plugging the power adapter into an electric outlet.

Now see if you can access internet if not reboot your computer and check for internet connectivity. This is the easiest workaround to fix any modem-router issues.

 

Let’s say you’ve lost your original CD or your unable to setup router using CD, Still you can configure your Belkin wireless  G plus router manually using  the web interface (GUI).

    Hi Craig,

    You are right. Connect a cable to the back of your computer to Ethernet port and connect other end to the belkin router (there are 4 LAN ports)connect to any one of this port.

    Now, connect BRIGHTHOUSE modem cable directly to Internet/WAN port of your Belkin router and follow the above steps.

  17. Dana says:

    I followed this process because I am unable to find the CD to be able to re-install my wireless connection. When I log on to the Belkin page via the IP address provided I am currently showing a connected status via landline internet connection; however, when I change my connection as the instructions provided (Cable Broadband user and cloning my Mac address) I lose my connected status. The wireless connection is no longer able to connect to my wireless SSIN on the basis of the wireless security settings not matching.

    Hi,
    i am having a Belkin g wireless router model F5D7234-4-H V5. thanks for all your help with the above article i set up my router correctly.its working fine On PC i am able to connect to internet with the use of this router but whenever i try to connect internet to my PSP using wifi it gives me following error “communication with the server failed. a dns error has occurred (80410410)” . But u know my psp is able to scan a access point which i created using password but when i connect to internet using psp something went wrong…..please help..

    thanks in advance

      Error “communication with the server failed. a dns error has occurred (80410410)”

      Hi Suyog,
      Login to the router with default ip 192.168.2.1 and change the wireless channel number to 1,9 or 11, I guess signal strength is not enough to connect to PSP.

      If your network is password protected then change security from WEP to WPA or WPA to WEP (Wireled Equivalency Privacy). Disable the Belkin router firewall and WPS (Wifi Protected Setup) option of router and see if you can connect. You can also enter the MAC address of PSP manually configure the connection.

    i have Belkin F5D7234-4-H i want to use it as a wifi router at home do i need modem or i can put LAN cable and use it? i dont have CD… any help?

    • admin says:

      Who is your Internet service provider? If its a cable connection you can connect directly and use it, Please follow the steps mentioned above, you don’t need a CD for setup.

  34. Pawan says:

    Hi,

    I recently bought a Belkin N300 Router, and lost the CD. I’ve tried configuring it with the help of this article 4 times now.

    The steps seem simple and easy, but when i click connect at the end, a message saying: “The server closed the connection without sending any data.” appears.

    Now, i don’t know what the problem is. My net is completely stable, all wires are intact, the modem is brand new.

    Also, i noticed that even after saving changes and all that, the WAN IP, DNS, Sub-net and all that under Internets settings on the Belkin site all show 0.0.0.0 even after saving changes.

    Please help. I am in distress.

    • admin says:

      Hi Pawan,
      Don’t worry about it, Try Belkin Router Reset and then call up your Internet service provider and ask them for basic setup details. I am not sure what kind of connection your using.

      • Pawan says:

        Okay, so i called my isp call center and followed your instructions thoroughly. Finally, i was able to setup wifi for my primary laptop (for which i couldnt thank you enough!)

        However, when i try to connect using other laptops/i phone, device gets connected to router, but not the internet. I have confirmed that my connection is PPPoe type. The thing is, even post configuration i need to connect to internet from my primary laptop through the isp client by filling in id password etc.

        So, now the problem is due to my router settings or is the isp responsible?

  36. Gouge says:

    I have a Windows XP PC and a MacBook OSX Lion connected wirelessly through a Belkin Wireless G+MIMO Modem Router (F5D9630uk4A). Both can access the internet with no problems. I have tried to link the wirelessly through a Workgroup to be able to share files and for the Mac to use the USB printer connected to the PC. While I can see the Mac occasionally on the PC’s Workgroup window, I’m told that the Mac is not accessible. I can’t see the PC from the Mac, even though I have configured both for file sharing. If I connect the Mac to the router using ethernet I can see the PC’s files on the Mac and the Mac’s files on the PC. Please advise me on what to do!!

      Hi Alice,
      Do you see the wireless light lit on the router! Refresh your network list and check whether your network is listed or not! or else you have to setup Belkin router changing the network name (SSID)

    For all those who tried above method but failed ( mee too).
    1) connect Belkin router as explained above….use only wifi method to connect with your PC(do not connect with Lan wire)…you can get wifi key written below of router.
    2) type CMD in run….type IPCONFIG in CMD….it will show you default gateway Ip…which is mainly 192.168.2.1
    3) type 192.168.2.1 on internet explorer and you will get Belkin set up page. Kindly update this page as per your internet configuration
