Hey as per your query, you have a Belkin router which you want to set up on your PTCL. I will discuss a detailed stepwise solution to this problem below.
Kindly follow them carefully to set up your Belkin wireless router on ptcl broadband settings.
Step 1: Take out the Belkin router from the box and connect it o a constant power supply. Connect your Belkin router to your computer using an Ethernet cable, one end of the cable goes into the LAN port of your router while the other end goes into the ethernet port of the computer.
The ADSL cable from the modem goes into WAN port of your router. Now wait for few minutes to the connection between the two devices get established.
Step 2: Open your web browser and type in 192.168.2.1 or your own IP address and hit Enter. This will redirect you to the login portal of your router. Here, enter "admin" in the username field and leave the password field blank and hit Enter.
Now you will be redirected to the main settings page. Please note the above-mentioned login credentials are default ones if your ISP has provided a different set, use them.
Step 3: On the main settings page of your router, click on " Setup wizard" on the left-hand side and follow the instructions on the screen to complete the setup. In case you cannot find any such link then go to your WAN settings and check the box for DHCP.
This will ensure that your router receives an automatic IP address from your ISP. Now below that, you will see connection type choose PPPoE. Save the settings.
Step 4: Now go to Security settings, here, first change the encryption type to WPA2 as it is considered to be the safest and government level encryption.
Below the encryption type, you will notice a box for "Pass-key", this is your wifi password. change it with a strong password which you can remember. Save the settings and you have successfully setup your router.
Step 5: Go to router maintenance or simply try opening a website, if you are able to do so, you have successfully configured your Belkin router with PTCL network.
