Adding storage devices, printers and game consoles to your network through a Belkin router

Expanding your network is made possible by connecting printers, storage devices and game consoles to your Belkin router.  To help you get started, follow the tips below.
 
Tip 1:
Make sure your Belkin router is ON. 
 
Tip 2:
Take note of the Wi-Fi settings of your Belkin router such as the Network Name (SSID), Password and Security Type.  For some Belkin routers, these settings are listed on the router's label.  However, if you have modified and have forgotten your Wi-Fi settings, you can retrieve them by accessing your Belkin router's web-based setup page.  To learn how to do this, click here.
