Introduction
The element that makes Belkin’s N1 MIMO technology different
from a conventional radio is the use of multiple antennas and two
simultaneous data streams to deliver wireless transfers around your
home or office. A conventional radio uses one antenna to transmit
a data stream. Belkin’s N1 MIMO, on the other hand, uses three
antennas. This design helps combat distortion and interference.
Belkin’s N1 MIMO is multidimensional. It builds on one-dimensional
smart-antenna technology by simultaneously transmitting two data
streams through the same channel, which increases wireless capacity.
Another element that enhances Belkin’s N1 MIMO is the use of
aggregation as specified in the draft 802.11n specification. By
shortening the space between packets and combining multiple smaller
packets into one larger packet, Belkin’s N1 MIMO can transmit more
data through available bandwidth.
Think of conventional radio transmission as a two-lane highway. The
speed limit governs the maximum allowable flow of traffic through
that lane. Compared with conventional radios, one-dimensional smart
antenna systems help move traffic through that lane faster and more
reliably—analogous to a four-lane road on which traffic consistently
moves at a rate closer to the speed limit. Belkin’s N1 MIMO helps
traffic move at the speed limit and opens more lanes—to become the
superhighway in this example. The rate of traffic flow is multiplied by
the number of lanes that are opened.

Revolutionary N1 Wireless Technology with MIMO (N1 MIMO)
Your Belkin N1 Wireless Router uses a new smart-antenna technology
called Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO). N1 MIMO complies
with the IEEE draft 802.11n specification. It increases speed, range,
reliability, and spectral efficiency for wireless networking systems.
Introduction
Placement of your N1 Wireless Router
Important Factors for Placement and Setup
Your wireless connection will be stronger the closer your computer is
to your Router. Typical indoor operating range for wireless devices is
between 100 and 200 feet.
In the same way, your wireless connection and performance will
degrade somewhat as the distance between your Router and
connected devices increases. This may or may not be noticeable
to you. As you move further from your Router, connection speed
may decrease. Factors that can weaken signals simply by getting
in the way of your network’s radio waves are metal appliances or
obstructions, and walls.
If you have concerns about your network’s performance that might
be related to range or obstruction factors, try moving the computer
to a position between five and 10 feet from the Router in order to see
if distance is the problem. If difficulties persist even at close range,
please contact Belkin Technical Support.
Note: While some of the items listed below can affect network
performance, they will not prohibit your wireless network from
functioning; if you are concerned that your network is not operating at
its maximum effectiveness, this checklist may help.
1.
Router Placement
Place your Router, the central connection point of your
network, as close as possible to the center of your wireless
network devices.
To achieve the best wireless network coverage for your “wireless
clients” (i.e., computers enabled by Belkin Wireless Notebook
Network Cards, Wireless Desktop Network Cards, and Wireless
USB Adapters):
•
Ensure that your Router’s networking antennas are parallel
to each other, and are positioned vertically (toward the
ceiling). If your Router itself is positioned vertically, point the
antennas as much as possible in an upward direction.
•
In multistory homes, place the Router on a floor that is as
close to the center of the home as possible. This may mean
placing the Router on an upper floor.
•
Try not to place the Router near a cordless 2.4GHz phone.
3
Introduction
Avoid Obstacles and Interference
Avoid placing your Router near devices that may emit radio
“noise,” such as microwave ovens. Dense objects that can inhibit
wireless communication include:
• Refrigerators
• Washers and/or dryers
• Metal cabinets
• Large aquariums
• Metallic-based, UV-tinted windows
If your wireless signal seems weak in some spots, make sure that
objects such as these are not blocking the signal’s path (between
your computers and Router).
3.
Cordless Phones
2
3
4
5
6
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after
attending to the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
7
• Try moving cordless phones away from your Router and your
wireless-enabled computers.
8
• Unplug and remove the battery from any cordless phone
that operates on the 2.4GHz band (check manufacturer’s
information). If this fixes the problem, your phone may
be interfering.
9
• If your phone supports channel selection, change the channel
on the phone to the farthest channel from your wireless
network. For example, change the phone to channel 1 and
move your Router to channel 11. See your phone’s user
manual for detailed instructions.
• If necessary, consider switching to a 900MHz or 5GHz
cordless phone.
4.
1
Choose the “Quietest” Channel for your Wireless Network
In locations where homes or offices are close together, such as
apartment buildings or office complexes, there may be wireless
networks nearby that can conflict with yours.
Use the Site Survey capabilities found in the Wireless Utility of
your wireless adapter to locate any other wireless networks that
are available (see your wireless adapter’s user manual), and move
your Router and computers to a channel as far away from other
networks as possible.
4
10
section
2.
Introduction
• Experiment with more than one of the available channels, in
order to find the clearest connection and avoid interference
from neighboring cordless phones or other wireless devices.
• For Belkin wireless networking products, use the detailed Site
Survey and wireless channel information included with your
wireless network card. See your network card’s user guide for
more information.
These guidelines should allow you to cover the maximum
possible area with your Router. Should you need to cover an
even wider area, we suggest the Belkin Wireless Range
Extender/Access Point.
5.
Secure Connections, VPNs, and AOL
Secure connections typically require a user name and
password, and are used where security is important. Secure
connections include:
• Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, often used to
connect remotely to an office network
• The “Bring Your Own Access” program from America Online
(AOL), which lets you use AOL through broadband provided by
another cable or DSL service
• Most online banking websites
• Many commercial websites that require a user name and
password to access your account
Secure connections can be interrupted by a computer’s
power management setting, which causes it to “go to sleep.”
The simplest solution to avoid this is to simply reconnect by
rerunning the VPN or AOL software, or by re-logging into the
secure website.
A second alternative is to change your computer’s power
management settings so it does not go to sleep; however, this
may not be appropriate for portable computers. To change your
power management setting under Windows, see the “Power
Options” item in the Control Panel.
If you continue to have difficulty with Secure Connections, VPNs,
and AOL, please review the steps above to be sure you have
addressed these issues.

DSL modem to connect to the Internet, your ISP may use PPPoE to
log you into the service. If you have an Internet connection in your
home or small office that doesn’t require a modem, you may also
use PPPoE.
Your connection type is PPPoE if:
1) Your ISP gave you a user name and password, which is required
to connect to the Internet.
2) Your ISP gave you software such as WinPOET or Enternet300
that you use to connect to the Internet.

Alternate Setup Method
Configuring your WAN Media Access Controller (MAC)
Address
All network components including cards, adapters, and routers, have
a unique “serial number” called a MAC address. Your Internet Service
Provider (ISP) may record the MAC address of your computer’s adapter
and only let that particular computer connect to the Internet service.
When you install the Router, its own MAC address will be “seen” by the
ISP and may cause the connection not to work. Belkin has provided the
ability to clone (copy) the MAC address of the computer into the Router.
This MAC address, in turn, will be seen by the ISP’s system as the
original MAC address and will allow the connection to work. If you are
not sure whether your ISP needs to see the original MAC address,
simply clone the MAC address of the computer that was originally
connected to the modem. Cloning the address will not cause any
problems with your network.
Cloning your MAC Address
To clone your MAC address, make sure that you are using the computer
that was ORIGINALLY CONNECTED to your modem before the Router
was installed. Click the “Clone” button (1). Click “Apply Changes” (3).
Your MAC address is now cloned to the Router.
Entering a Specific MAC Address
In certain circumstances you may need a specific WAN MAC address.
You can manually enter one in the “MAC Address” page. Type in a MAC
address in the spaces provided (2) and click “Apply Changes” (3) to

DHCP Server
The DHCP server function makes setting up a network very easy
by assigning IP addresses to each computer on the network

The range of IP addresses set aside for dynamic assignment
to the computers on your network. The default is 2–100 (99
computers). If you want to change this number, you can do so
by entering a new starting and ending IP address and clicking on
“Apply Changes”. The DHCP server can assign 100 IP addresses
automatically. This means that you cannot specify an IP address
pool larger than 100 computers. For example, starting at 50
means you have to end at 150 or lower so as not to exceed the
100-client limit. The starting IP address must be lower in number
than the ending IP address.
5
Lease Time
9
The length of time the DHCP server will reserve the IP address
for each computer. We recommend that you leave the lease
time set to “Forever”. The default setting is “Forever”, meaning
that any time a computer is assigned an IP address by the
DHCP server, the IP address will not change for that particular
computer. Setting lease times for shorter intervals such as one
day or one hour frees IP addresses after the specified period of
time. This also means that a particular computer’s IP address
may change over time. If you have set any of the other advanced
features of the Router such as DMZ or client IP filters, these are
dependent on the IP address. For this reason, you will not want
the IP address to change.

Local Domain Name
The default setting is “Belkin”. You can set a local domain name

“Belkin_N1_Wireless_123456”. You can change this to anything you
choose, or you can leave it unchanged. Keep in mind, if you decide
to change your wireless network name, and there are other wireless
networks operating in your area, your network name needs to be
different from other wireless networks that may be operating in your

Changing the Wireless Channel
There are a number of operating channels from which you can
choose—in the United States, there are 11 and in the United Kingdom
(and most of Europe), there are 13. In a small number of other countries,
there are other channel requirements. Your Router is configured to
operate on the proper channels for the country in which you reside. The
channel can be changed if needed. If there are other wireless networks
operating in your area, your network should be set to operate on a
channel that is different than the other wireless networks.

several modes.
Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1) 802.11g only

Setting the Router to this mode will let 802.11g- and
802.11b-compliant devices to join the network.
802.11n & 802.11g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow N1/draft 802.11n- and
802.11g-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out any
slower 802.11b devices.
802.11n only
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only N1/draft
802.11n-compliant devices to join the network, keeping out
802.11g and 802.11b devices.
Off
This mode will turn OFF the Router’s access point, so no wireless
devices can join the network. Turning off the wireless function of
your Router is a great way to secure your network when you are
away from home for a long period of time, or don’t want to use the
wireless feature of the Router at a certain time.

Using the Bandwidth Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless bandwidth modes.
There are several modes available:
1) 20MHz only
Setting the Router to this mode allows only 20MHz operation. This
mode is compatible with N1, draft 802.11n-, 802.11g-, and
802.11b-compliant devices, but will limit N1, draft 802.11n-compliant
devices’ bandwidth by half. Reducing bandwidth to 20MHz-only
operation might solve some wireless problems.
2) 40MHz only
Setting the Router to this mode allows only 40MHz operation. This
mode is compatible only with N1, draft 802.11n-compliant devices.
It may affect legacy 802.11b/g devices. Use only when you have a
pure N1, draft 802.11n wireless network.
3) 20MHz/40MHz Auto
Setting the Router to this mode allows it to switch automatically
between 20MHz and 40MHz operation. This mode enables 40MHz
operation, to maximize speed for N1, draft 802.11n-compliant
devices when conditions permit. When a legacy 802.11g access
point is presented and occupies an adjacent secondary channel,
the Router automatically reverts to 20MHz operation to maximize
compatibility. We recommend using this as the default mode.

devices on your wireless network when 802.11g or 802.11b devices
are present or when there is heavy 802.11g or 802.11b traffic in the
operating environment. Use protected mode if your network consists of
a mix of Belkin N1 Wireless Cards and 802.11g or 802.11b cards on your
network. If you are in an environment that includes little to no 802.11g
or 802.11b wireless network traffic, you will achieve the best N1 wireless
performance with protected mode OFF. Conversely, in an environment
with HEAVY 802.11g or 802.11b traffic or interference, you will achieve
the best N1 wireless performance with protected mode ON. This will
ensure N1 wireless performance is not affected.
Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your Router is equipped with the latest security standard called
Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2). It also supports the legacy security
standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). By default, wireless
security is disabled. To enable security, you will need to determine
which standard you want to use. To access the security settings, click
“Security” on the “Wireless” tab.
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the
WPA-based 802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless
security by combining advanced network authentication and stronger
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption methods.

WPA2 Requirements
IMPORTANT: In order to use WPA2 security, all your computers
and wireless client adapters must be upgraded with patches, driver,
and client utility software that supported WPA2. At the time of this
User Manual’s publication, a couple security patches are available,
for free download, from Microsoft ®. These patches work only with
the Windows XP operating system. Other operating systems are not
supported at this time.
2
For Windows XP computers that do not have Service Pack 2
(SP2), a file from Microsoft called “Windows XP Support Patch
for Wireless Protected Access (KB 826942)” is available for free
download at http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=826942

IMPORTANT: You also need to ensure that all your wireless client
cards/adapters support WPA2, and that you have downloaded and
installed the latest driver. Most of the Belkin wireless cards have
driver updates available for download from the Belkin support site:
www.belkin.com/networking.

Setting WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)
Like WPA security, WPA2 is available in both WPA2-Personal (PSK)
mode and WPA2-Enterprise (RADIUS) mode. Typically, WPA2Personal (PSK) is the mode that will be used in a home environment,
while WPA2-Enterprise (RADIUS) is implemented in a business
environment where an external radius server distributes the network
key to the clients automatically. This guide will focus on WPA2Personal (PSK) usage. Please refer to the User Manual for more
information about wireless security and different types of wireless
security.
1.
After you’ve set up your Router, go to the “Security” page under
“Wireless” and select “WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)” from the
“Security Mode” drop-down menu.
2.
For “Authentication”, select “WPA-PSK”, “WPA2-PSK”, or
“WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK”. This setting will have to be identical
on the wireless clients that you set up. “WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK”
mode will allow the Router to support clients running either WPA
or WPA2 security.
3.
“Encryption Technique”, select “TKIP”, “AES”, or “TKIP+AES”.
This setting will have to be identical on the wireless clients that
you set up.
4.
Enter your pre-shared key (PSK). This can be from eight to 63
characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same
key must be used on all of the wireless clients that you set up.
For example, your PSK might be something like: “Smith family
network key”. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. You must now set
all wireless clients to match these settings.

Setting WPA Security
Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be
equipped with software that supports WPA. At the time this User Manual
was published, a security patch from Microsoft is available for free
download. This patch works only with Windows XP.
Your Router supports WPA-PSK (no server). WPA-PSK uses what is
known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is
basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It
can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters. Each client
uses the same key to access the network. Typically this is the mode
that will be used in a home environment.

Using a Hexadecimal Key
A hexadecimal key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A–F
and 0–9. 64-bit keys are 10 digits long and can be divided into five
two-digit numbers. 128-bit keys are 26 digits long and can be divided
into 13 two-digit numbers.
For instance:
AF 0F 4B C3 D4 = 64-bit key
C3 03 0F AF 0F 4B B2 C3 D4 4B C3 D4 E7 = 128-bit key
In the boxes below, make up your key by writing in two characters
between A–F and 0–9. You will use this key to program the encryption
settings on your Router and your wireless computers.
Note to Mac users: Original Apple AirPort products support 64-bit
encryption only. Apple AirPort 2 products can support 64-bit or 128bit encryption. Please check your product to see which version you are
using. If you cannot configure your network with 128-bit encryption,
try 64-bit encryption.

Configuring the Firewall
Your Router is equipped with a firewall that will protect your network
from a wide array of common hacker attacks including:
•
IP Spoofing
•
Land Attack Ping of Death (PoD)
•
Denial of Service (DoS)
•
IP with zero length
•
Smurf Attack
•
TCP Null Scan
•
SYN flood
•
UDP flooding
•
Tear Drop Attack
•
ICMP defect
•
RIP defect
•
Fragment flooding
The firewall also masks common ports that are frequently used
to attack networks. These ports appear to be “stealth” meaning
that for all intents and purposes, they do not exist to a would-be
hacker. You can turn the firewall function off if needed; however, it
is recommended that you leave the firewall enabled. Disabling the
firewall protection will not leave your network completely vulnerable
to hacker attacks, but it is recommended that you leave the
firewall enabled.

The Virtual Servers function will allow you to route external (Internet)
calls for services such as a web server (port 80), FTP server (Port 21),
or other applications through your Router to your internal network.
Since your internal computers are protected by a firewall, computers
outside your network (over the Internet) cannot get to them because
they cannot be “seen”. A list of common applications has been
provided in case you need to configure the Virtual Server function

system clock to the global Internet. The synchronized clock in the
Router is used to record the security log and control client filtering.
Select the time zone that you reside in. You have the option to select
a primary and a backup NTP server to keep your Router’s clock
synchronized. Select your desired NPT server from the drop-down
box, or simply keep it as is.
If you reside in an area that observes daylight saving, then place a
check mark in the box next to “Enable Daylight Saving”. The system
clock may not update immediately. Allow at least 15 minutes for the
Router to contact the time servers on the Internet and get a response.
You cannot set the clock yourself.
Enabling Remote Management
Before you enable this advanced feature of your Belkin Router, MAKE
SURE YOU HAVE SET THE ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD. Remote
management allows you to make changes to your Router’s settings
from anywhere on the Internet. There are two methods of remotely
managing the Router. The first is to allow access to the Router from
anywhere on the Internet by selecting “Any IP address can remotely
manage the Router”. By typing in your WAN IP address from any
computer on the Internet, you will be presented with a login screen
where you need to type in the password of your Router. The second
method is to allow a specific IP address only to remotely manage the
Router. This is more secure, but less convenient. To use this method,
enter the IP address you know you will be accessing the Router from
in the space provided and select “Only this IP address can remotely
manage the Router”. Before you enable this function, it is STRONGLY
RECOMMENDED that you set your administrator password. Leaving
the password empty will potentially open your Router to intrusion.

the method by which the Router shares the single IP address assigned
by your ISP with the other computers on your network. This function
should only be used if your ISP assigns you multiple IP addresses or
you need NAT disabled for an advanced system configuration. If you
have a single IP address and you turn NAT off, the computers on your
network will not be able to access the Internet. Other problems may
also occur. Turning off NAT will not affect your firewall functions.

Enabling/Disabling UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is yet another advanced feature
offered by your Belkin Router. It is a technology that offers seamless
operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other
applications that are UPnP-compliant. Some applications require
the Router’s firewall to be configured in a specific way to operate
properly. This usually requires opening TCP and UDP ports, and in
some instances, setting trigger ports. An application that is UPnPcompliant has the ability to communicate with the Router, basically
“telling” the Router which way it needs the firewall configured. The
Router ships with the UPnP feature disabled. If you are using any

Troubleshooting
•
My wireless network performance is inconsistent.
•
Data transfer is sometimes slow.
•
Signal strength is poor.
•
Difficulty establishing and/or maintaining a Virtual Private
Network (VPN) connection.
Wireless technology is radio-based, which means connectivity
and the throughput performance between devices decreases
when the distance between devices increases. Other factors that
will cause signal degradation (metal is generally the worst culprit)
are obstructions such as walls and metal appliances. Note also
that connection speed may decrease as you move farther away from
the Router.
In order to determine if wireless issues are related to range, we
suggest temporarily moving the computer, if possible, five to 10 feet
from the Router.
Limiting the wireless transmit rate—Limiting the wireless transmit
rate can help improve the maximum wireless range and connection
stability. Most wireless cards have the ability to limit the transmission
rate. To change this property, go to the Windows Control Panel, open
“Network Connections” and double-click on your wireless card’s
connection. In the properties dialog, select the “Configure” button on
the “General” tab (Windows 98 users will have to select the wireless
card in the list box and then click “Properties”), then choose the
“Advanced” tab and select the rate property.
Wireless client cards are usually set to automatically adjust the
wireless transmit rate for you, but doing so can cause periodic
disconnects when the wireless signal is too weak; as a rule, slower
transmission rates are more stable. Experiment with different
connection rates until you find the best one for your environment.
Note that all available transmission rates should be acceptable for
browsing the Internet. For more assistance, see your wireless card’s
user manual.
