How to setup belkin router?

I recently bought a Belkin wireless router form my home network, I have a Comcast as a service provider. I do not know how to configure or setup this thing? Do I need to simply plug it in with my modem? Can anyone tell me in detail and non-tech language on how to do this?

You need to configure and setup your router with the help of a computer or mobile device, in order to share your internet connection with multiple other devices. You can set it up either via a wired connection or wireless connection. You need to decide which one is more suitable for you, although the only difference lies in the connection.

Wired Connection:
1. Connect your Belkin router to a power source.
2. Connect the WAN port of your modem to the Intenet port of your Belkin router.
3. Power on both the router and the modem, wait for a minute to let your device boot up.
4. Using an Ethernet cable connect the LAN port of your Belkin router to the computer.

Wireless Connection:
1. Connect your modem and router in the same way as above, and power it on.
2. Open your computer and look for your Belkin router under wireless networks, click on it to connect.
3. Once you are connected to the wireless network we can proceed towards the actual setup.

 

Setting up Belkin router:
Before proceeding towards the actual setup, there are certain pre-requirements, which you must have :

  1. Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 or  http://belkinrouter.local./
  2. Admin Username & Password: This generally comes with your device, in case you cannot find it, look under the device. Once you have found out, follow these instructions as mentioned.
  • Open your web browser and type in the default gateway address into the URL field i.e 192.168.0.1 or  http://belkinrouter.local./ and hit Enter.
  • You will be redirected to the settings Wizard page since the router is brand new. You need to select your preferred language and time-zone.
  • In the next step, the setting wizard will detect your connection type and guide you to set up your router
  •  You can change certain aspects like wifi password from Security settings, to make your network strong.
  •  You can also change the admin login details from the Administrative settings.
  •  Save all the settings and reboot your device. After the reboot, you need to select the new name for your wifi network and enter the password to access the wifi.
