Solved can't connect to 192.168.2.1

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi folks,

Can anyone out there help me with Belkin F5D7632-4 which the service engineer fixed up for me. I have no idea what my password is at all that was set up?

How can I find this as I need it to use the wi-fi for my Christmas present (so I'm told) I'm getting. I'd appreciate your help with this. However, I'm an oldie so simple rules would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in anticipation of a much wanted reply

I'm in the UK and used to have that self same router - it's quite old. Couple of points:

It runs quite hot - that's normal.

It sometimes fails and has to be unplugged from the power and back in again (well, mine did anyway). I found that a very cheap modern replacement was far better.

If you are in the UK disconnect the third phone wire from the phone sockets and the internet will be faster. This wire is for old fashioned bells and twirly dials so I doubt you need it. Most BT engineers are now leaving it disconnected.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

To access the router's configuration utility at http://192.168.2.1 you need to connect it directly to a PC via an ethernet cable, with the router also connected to a working ADSL phone line.

Wait until all the router lights are showing 'okay' and connected, then open a web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 into the address bar, then press <Enter>

By default, the password is blank.
Click on Security to see the current wireless key.

if the default password (blank) has been changed, we cannot help you with that I'm afraid. You will have to ask the service engineer who set it up for you.

Hi Phil22,

Many thanks for your advice here. I can't get the engineer back as the company was made redundant more than a year ago.

When I type http://192.168.2.1 into my browser then press enter I get lots of web pages coming up? I have tried some of them and even got to where I needed to click on connection type etc; and I could see a password has been put in but is unreadable. However I'll keep trying.

I have wondered if I take my router back to it's original settings if it would let me put in a new password, but maybe not??.. A bit frightened incase I make a big mistake trying to do that.

Many thanks for your advise I appreciate it lots.

If you're trying to connect to the router's management interface and it's not working, I would try resetting the unit to factory defaults (info should be in the manual) and after doing so, I would then try to connect using the IP listed in the manual.

Resetting the router would mean having to enter a new management interface password.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Been working here this afternoon to fix my above problem and pleased to say that finally I got through using http://192.168.2.1 What a relief?

The ways of fixing pc's are always easy when you know how? The fact that others tried helping, spurred me on as well. Many thanks to you both above with that. I'm now ready for the promised Christmas pressie.
