The Belkin Wireless G router allows users to connect wirelessly to the Internet. The router does not provide the Internet connection itself, but connects to an Internet source (such as a DSL or cable modem), then splits the connection between users. Connecting the wireless router requires the physical connection, but also configuration of the router in order for it to work properly.

Tips and warnings

  • The Setup Assistant does not prompt for a network security password, but it is recommended that one be set. To set the network security password, open a web browser, and then type "" in the address bar. If the router prompts for a password, and this is the first time logging into the router, then leave the password blank and click "submit". Click on "Security" in the left menu to enter a network password.
