Configuring WEP:

1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
4.
Click Security under Wireless menu.

5. Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
7. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.

Configuring WPA-PSK Encryption:

1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
4.

7. Select AES as the Encryption Technique.
8. Enter a word or group of characters in the Password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length.
Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case sensitive ("A" is different than "a")
9. Click Apply changes to save the settings.

Configuring MAC Access Control List:

Note: Before you enable MAC access control list, you need to know the MAC address (aka Physical address or Hardware address) of all your wireless devices. MAC address control has the ability to allow or deny only those wireless devices whose MAC addresses you specified.

1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the BELKIN router.
2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address which would be http://192.168.2.1 (this is the default IP address of the router) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click MAC address control under wireless menu.
The Login window will appear and prompt you for a Password. By default the password is left blank and you can click Submit.
3.
Click on Allow or Deny


4.
Click inside the box and enter the MAC address of the device you wish to allow or deny. Use the following format to enter an address 00:17:XX:XX:XX:XX


5.
Repeat the last step to add all wireless clients to the list.
6. When you have finished entering all the MAC address of wireless devices, click Apply Changes. Your settings will be saved and only the wireless clients with MAC addresses listed will be allowed to or denied from connecting to your router.

CHANGE NOTICE
Firmware Version 1.01.08
The overall look and feel of this new firmware has changed. While graphically the User
Interface has changed, functionally, the User Interface is the same.
NEW ADVANCED FEATURE DOCUMENTATION
Wireless Bridge
Your new firmware has the additional feature of wireless bridging.
Wireless bridging works with the following models only:
F5D7230-4 54g Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router
F5D7130 54g Wireless Network Access point
The following firmware version must be installed on the AP and the Router for proper
operation:
F5D7230-4: Version 1.01.08 or higher
F5D7130: Version 1.01.08 or higher
What is a Wireless Bridge?
A wireless bridge is actually a “mode” in which your Wireless Router can directly connect to a
secondary Wireless Access Point. Note that you can only bridge your 54g Wireless Router (Model
F5D7230-4) to a Belkin 54g Wireless Access Point (model F5D7130). Bridging with other brands
of Access Points is not supported at this time. You can use the bridge mode for extending the
range of your wireless network, or adding an additional extension of your network in another
area of your office or home without running cables.
Range Extension
Range extension will extend the wireless coverage area in your home or office. The example
below illustrates using bridging to extend the range of your wireless network. In this example,
the Router is set up to connect to an Access Point located in another area. Laptops can roam,
or move between the two wireless coverage areas.
Adding another network segment wirelessly
Bridging an Access Point to your wireless router will also allow you to add another network
segment without running wires to the area where the new segment is located. Connecting a
network switch or hub to the Access Point’s RJ45 jack will allow a number of computers
connected to the switch access to the rest of the network.
Setting up a Bridge between your wireless Router and a secondary Access Point
Bridging your router to a secondary AP requires that you access the Router’s Advanced Setup
utility and enter the MAC address of the AP in the appropriate area. There are also a few other
requirements. Make sure you follow the steps below carefully.
1. Set your Access Point to the same channel as the router. By default the router and AP
channels are set to channel 11 at the factory. If you have never changed the channel,
you don’t need to do anything.
2. Find the AP MAC address on the bottom label of the AP. There are two MAC addresses
on the bottom label. You will need the MAC address named “WLAN MAC Address”. The
MAC address starts with 0030BD and is followed by 6 other numbers or letters. (0030BDXXXXXX).
Write the MAC address below. Go to the next step.
3. Place your secondary AP within range of your wireless router and near the area where
you want to extend the range or add the network segment. Typically, indoor range
should be between 50 and 150 feet.
4. Connect power to your AP. Make sure the AP is on and proceed to the next step.
5. From a computer already connected to your router, access the Advanced Setup Utility
by opening your browser. In the address bar, type in “192.168.2.1” do not type in
“www” or http:// before the number. Note: if you have changed your router’s IP
address, use that IP address.
6. You will see the router’s user interface in the browser window. Click “Wireless Bridge”
(1) on the left-hand side of the screen. You will see the following screen.
7. Check the box that says “Enable ONLY specific Access Points to connect” (2)
8. In the field named AP1, (3) type in the MAC address of your secondary AP. When you
have typed in the address, click “Apply Changes”.
9. Bridging is now setup.

Testing the Wireless Bridge
You can test to see if your wireless bridge is working by doing a simple PING test. You will need
a computer with Windows 98, 98SE, Me, 2000, NT, or XP. If you are running Mac OS, you will
need to aquire a PING utility. If you are using any other OS, you may need a PING utility or
there may be one built in. The following directions are for Windows OS, but the same method
can be used on other operating systems with a PING utility.
1. Open a Command window. click Start then Run. In Windows 98, 98SE, Me type the word
“Command” in the Run field. For Windows 2000, NT or XP type “CMD”. This will open a
Command window on the desktop.
2. In the command window type “PING 192.168.2.254” This is the IP address of the
secondary Access Point. If you changed the IP address of the Access Point, then use
that IP address.
3. If everything is working fine, you will see “Reply from 192.168.2.254: bytes=32
time=12ms TTL=255” four times on the screen. The test is complete.
