The wireless network name (SSID) and Password is important especially if you are trying to connect to a wireless network.  This information can be accessed through the web-based setup page of your Belkin router.

Before proceeding, make sure that your computer is connected to your Belkin router.  Then, follow the steps below to learn how to check the wireless settings of your Belkin router.

Launch a web browser like Internet Explorer.

Step 2:

In the Address bar, enter your router's IP address then press [Enter].

NOTE:  The Belkin router's default IP address is 192.168.2.1.  If it doesn't work, check your router's IP address.  For instructions, click here.  If you are having problems accessing 192.168.2.1 or the router's web-based setup page, click here.
