Overview of the Belkin Dashboard

The Belkin Dashboard is the web interface of your router.  It has three (3) sections, the top widgets which are shortcuts to other configuration settings, the Advanced Settings which is the complete menu for all the settings on the router, and the Router Details section which displays the current router information.
 
NOTE:  A password is NOT needed to access the Dashboard since it is unlocked by default.  To set an administrator password you will need to click on the lock icon.
