Placement of your G+ MIMO 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.
Ensure that your Router’s networking antennas are parallel to each
other, and are positioned vertically (toward the ceiling).
•
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.
2. Avoid Obstacles and Interference
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.
Avoid placing your Router near devices that may emit radio “noise,”
such as microwave ovens. Dense objects that can inhibit wireless
communication include:
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
•
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).
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):

3. Cordless Phones
4. Choose the “Quietest” Channel for your Wireless Network
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after attending
to the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
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.
•
Try moving cordless phones away from your Router and your
wireless-enabled computers.
•
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.
•
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.
•
10
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.
If necessary, consider switching to a 900MHz or 5GHz
cordless phone.
•
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 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.
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
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.

Product Features
In minutes you will be able to share your Internet connection and network your computers. The following is a list of features that make your new Belkin
G+ MIMO Wireless Router an ideal solution for your home or small office network.
Works with Both PCs and Mac® Computers
NAT IP Address Sharing
The Router supports a variety of networking environments including Mac
OS® 8.x, 9.x, X v10.x, Linux®, Windows® 98, Me, NT®, 2000, XP, Vista®,
and others. All that is needed is an Internet browser and a network
adapter that supports TCP/IP (the standard language of the Internet).
Your Router employs Network Address Translation (NAT) to share the
single IP address assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider while
saving the cost of adding additional IP addresses to your Internet service
account.SPI Firewall
Patent-Pending Network Status Display
SPI Firewall
Lighted LEDs on the front of the Router indicate which functions are in
operation. You’ll know at-a-glance whether your Router is connected to
the Internet. This feature eliminates the need for advanced software and
status-monitoring procedures.
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, and fragment flooding.
Web-Based Advanced User Interface
Integrated 10/100 4-Port Switch
You can set up the Router’s advanced functions easily through your web
browser, without having to install additional software onto the computer.
There are no disks to install or keep track of and, best of all, you can
make changes and perform setup functions from any computer on the
network quickly and easily.
G+ MIMO Wireless Router
The Router has a built-in, four-port network switch to allow your wired
computers to share printers, data and MP3 files, digital photos, and
much more. The switch features automatic detection so it will adjust to
the speed of connected devices. The switch will transfer data between
computers and the Internet simultaneously without interrupting or
consuming resources.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)
Integrated G+ MIMO Wireless Access Point
UPnP is a technology that offers seamless operation of voice
messaging, video messaging, games, and other applications that are
UPnP-compliant.
G+ MIMO is an exciting new wireless technology that achieves data rates of
up to 54Mbps. Actual throughput is typically lower than the connected
data rate and will vary depending on your networking environment.
Support for VPN Pass-Through
NOTE: The standard transmission rate—54Mbps—is the physical data
rate. Actual data throughput will be lower.
If you connect to your office network from home using a VPN
connection, your Router will allow your VPN-equipped computer to pass
through the Router and to your office network.
MAC Address Filtering
For added security, you can set up a list of MAC addresses (unique
client identifiers) that are allowed access to your network. Every
computer has its own MAC address. Simply enter these MAC addresses
into a list using the Web-Based Advanced User Interface and you can
control access to your network.
Built-In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)
Built-In Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on-board makes
for the easiest possible connection of a network. The DHCP server will
assign IP addresses to each computer automatically so there is no need
for a complicated networking setup.
Setup Assistant
The Setup Assistant, second generation of Belkin’s renowned Easy
Install Wizard, takes the guesswork out of setting up your Router. This
automatic software determines your network settings for you and sets
up the Router for connection to your Internet Service Provider (ISP). In a
matter of minutes, your Router will be up and running on the Internet.
NOTE: Setup Assistant software is compatible with Windows 2000,
XP, and Vista; and Mac OS X v10.x. If you are using another operating
system, the Router can be set up using the Alternate Setup Method
described in this User Manual (see page 20)

Setting Custom Domain Name Server (DNS) Settings
A “Domain Name Server” is a server located on the Internet that
translates Universal Resource Locators (URLs) like “www.belkin.com”
into IP addresses. Many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) do not require
you to enter this information into the Router. The “Automatic from ISP”
(1) box should be checked if your ISP did not give you a specific DNS
address. If you are using a static IP connection type, then you may
need to enter a specific DNS address and secondary DNS address for
your connection to work properly. If your connection type is dynamic or
PPPoE, it is likely that you do not have to enter a DNS address. Leave
the “Automatic from ISP” box checked. To enter the DNS address
settings, uncheck the “Automatic from ISP” box and enter your DNS
entries in the spaces provided. Click “Apply Changes” (2) to save

Configuring your WAN Media Access Controller (MAC) Address
Entering a Specific 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.
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
save the changes. The Router’s WAN MAC address will now be changed
to the MAC address you specified.

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.

3.DHCP Server
5.Lease Time
The DHCP server function makes setting up a network very easy by
assigning IP addresses to each computer on the network automatically.
The default setting is “On”. The DHCP server can be turned OFF if
necessary; however, in order to do so you must manually set a static
IP address for each computer on your network. To turn off the DHCP
server, select “Off” and click “Apply Changes”.
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.
4.
IP Pool
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.
G+ MIMO Wireless Router
6.Local Domain Name
The default setting is “Belkin”. You can set a local domain name
(network name) for your network. There is no need to change this setting
unless you have a specific advanced need to do so. You can name the
network anything you want such as “MY NETWORK”.

Configuring the Wireless Network Settings
The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or
Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point.
Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID is used.
The SSID is your network name. The default network name of the
Router is “Belkin G+ MIMO Wireless” followed by six digits that are
unique to your Router. Your network name will look something like
“Belkin_G+MIMO_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
area. To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the
SSID field (1) and click “Apply Changes” (2). The change is immediate.
If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers
may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network
name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for
information on making this change.

2) 802.11g only
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.
Setting the Router to this mode will allow only 802.11g-compliant
devices to join the network, keeping out any slower 802.11b devices.
3) 802.11b+g
Setting the Router to this mode will allow 802.11b- and
802.11g-compliant devices to join the network.
Using the Wireless Mode Switch
This switch allows you to set the Router’s wireless modes. There are
several modes.
Note: Some modes may require firmware updates to be enabled.
1)
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.

Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your G+ MIMO Wireless Router is equipped with the latest security
standard called Wi-Fi Protected Access™ 2 (WPA2™) and the legacy
security standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). Your Router
also supports the Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) specification,
which simplifies the setup of a wireless network. WPS uses familiar
methodologies, such as typing in a Personal Identification Number (PIN)
or pushing a button, to enable users to automatically configure network
names and strong WPA™/WPA2 data encryption and authentication. 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.
Protected Mode Switch
Protected mode ensures proper operation of 802.11g devices on your
G+ MIMO network when 802.11b devices are present or when there is heavy
802.11b traffic in the operating environment. If you are using a mix of
Belkin G+ MIMO Wireless Cards and 802.11b or 802.11g cards on your
network, protected mode should be used. If you are in an environment
where there is no other (or very little) 802.11b wireless network traffic,
best 802.11g performance may be achieved with protected mode OFF.
If you are operating in an environment with HEAVY 802.11b traffic or
interference, best 802.11g performance may be achieved with protected
mode ON.

Using Wi-Fi Protected Setup
PIN: The client device has a PIN number (either four or eight digits) that
is associated with WPS. Enable WPS through the screen illustrated
below. Enter the client’s PIN into the Router’s internal registrar
(accessed through this screen). The client will be automatically enrolled
into your wireless network within two minutes.
WPS uses WPA2 (described on page 44) for encryption. It does not
provide additional security, but rather, standardizes the method for
securing your wireless network. You may use either the Push Button
Configuration (PBC) method or PIN method to allow a device access to
your wireless network. Conceptually, the two methods work as follows:
PBC: Push and hold the WPS button located on the back of your Router
for three seconds. Then, initiate the WPS procedure on the client
device within two minutes. Refer to your client’s documentation on this
procedure. Pushing the PBC button will automatically enable WPS. The
client has now been securely added to your wireless network.

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.
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/kb/826942
For Windows XP with Service Pack 2, Microsoft has released a free download to update the wireless client components to support WPA2
(KB971021). The update is available from: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917021
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, WPA2-Personal (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. Your Router supports WPA2-Personal (PSK).
1.
After you’ve set up your Router, go to the “Security” under
“Wireless” and select “WPA/WPA2-Personal (PSK)” from the
“Security Mode” drop-down menu.
2.
For “Authentication”, select “WPA-PSK”, “WPA2-PSK”, or “WPAPSK + 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.
For “Encryption Technique”, select “TKIP”, “AES”, or “TKIP+AES”.

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-Personal (PSK), which uses what is known as a pre-shared key (PSK) as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a
password that is between eight and 63 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.
Setting WPA-PSK
1.
From the “Security Mode” drop-down menu, select
“WPA/WPA-Personal (PSK)”.
2.
For “Encryption Technique”, select “TKIP” or “AES”. This setting
will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
3.
Enter your pre-shared key. 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 clients that you set up.
4.
Click “Apply Changes” to finish. You must now set all clients to
match these settings.

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.
Note to Mac users: Original Apple AirPort products support 64-bit
encryption only. Apple AirPort 2 products can support 64-bit or 128-bit
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.
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.

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
G+ MIMO Wireless Router
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.

Configuring Internal Forwarding Settings
Choosing an Application
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 for a specific application.
If your application is not listed, you will need to contact the application
vendor to find out which port settings you need.
Select your application from the drop-down list. Click “Add”. The
settings will be transferred to the next available space in the screen.
Click “Apply Changes” to save the setting for that application. To remove
an application, select the number of the row that you want to remove
then click “Clear”.
G+ MIMO Wireless Router
Manually Entering Settings into the Virtual Server
To manually enter settings, enter the IP address in the space provided
for the internal (server) machine, the port(s) required to pass (use a
comma between multiple ports), select the port type (TCP or UDP),
and click “Apply Changes”. You can only pass one port per internal IP
address. Opening ports in your firewall can pose a security risk. You can
enable and disable settings very quickly. It is recommended that you
disable the settings when you are not using a specific application.

Using Dynamic DNS
The Dynamic DNS service allows you to alias a dynamic IP address to a static host name in any of the many domains DynDNS.org offers, allowing
your network computers to be more easily accessed from various locations on the Internet. DynDNS.org provides this service, for up to five host
names, free to the Internet community.
The Dynamic DNSSM service is ideal for a home website, file server, or to make it easy to access your home PC and stored files while you’re at work.
Using the service can ensure that your host name always points to your IP address, no matter how often your ISP changes it. When your IP address
changes, your friends and associates can always locate you by visiting yourname.dyndns.org instead!
To register free for your Dynamic DNS host name, please visit http://www.dyndns.org.
Setting up the Router’s Dynamic DNS Update Client
You must register with DynDNS.org’s free update service before using
this feature. Once you have your registration, follow the directions below

Blocking an ICMP Ping
Computer hackers use what is known as “pinging” to find potential
victims on the Internet. By pinging a specific IP address and receiving a
response from the IP address, a hacker can determine that something
of interest might be there. The Router can be set up so it will not
respond to an ICMP ping from the outside. This heightens your Router’s
security level.
The “Utilities” screen lets you manage different parameters of the Router
and perform certain administrative functions.
(1)
To turn off the ping response, select “Block ICMP Ping” (1) and click
“Apply Changes”. The Router will not respond to an ICMP ping.

Changing System Settings
Changing the Login Time-Out Setting
The “System Settings” page is where you can enter a new administrator
password, set the time zone, enable remote management, and turn on
and off the NAT function of the Router.
The login time-out option allows you to set the period of time that you
can be logged into the Router’s advanced setup interface. The timer
starts when there has been no activity. For example, imagine you have
made some changes in the advanced setup interface, then left your
computer alone without clicking “Logout”. Assuming the time-out is set
to 10 minutes, 10 minutes after you leave, the login session will expire.
You will have to log into the Router again to make any more changes.
The login time-out option is for security purposes and the default is set
to 10 minutes. Note: Only one computer can be logged into the Router’s
advanced setup interface at one time.
Setting or Changing the Administrator Password
The Router ships with NO password entered. If you wish to add a
password for greater security, you can set a password here. Write down
your password and keep it in a safe place, as you will need it if you need
to log into the Router in the future. It is also recommended that you
set a password if you plan to use the remote management feature of
your Router.

Setting the Time and Time Zone
Enabling Remote Management
The Router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time
Protocol (SNTP) server. This allows the Router to synchronize the 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.
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.
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.
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.
Advanced Feature: The “Remote Access Port” option allows you to
configure the desired “Remote Access Port for Remote Management”
feature. The default access port is set to port 80.

Enabling/Disabling UPnP
Enabling/Disabling Auto Firmware Update
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 UPnP-compliant 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 applications that are UPnP-compliant, and
wish to take advantage of the UPnP features, you can enable the UPnP
feature. Simply select “Enable” in the “UPnP Enabling” section of the
“Utilities” page. Click “Apply Changes” to save the change.
This innovation provides the Router with the built-in capability to
automatically check for a new version of firmware and alert you that
the new firmware is available. When you log into the Router’s advanced
interface, the Router will perform a check to see if new firmware is
available. If so, you will be notified. You can choose to download the
new version or ignore it.

1.
2.
3.
If the Setup Assistant is not able to find the Router during the
installation process, there may be third-party firewall software
installed on the computer attempting to access the Internet.
Examples of third-party firewall software are ZoneAlarm, BlackICE
PC Protection, McAfee Personal Firewall, and Norton Personal
Firewall. If you do have firewall software installed on your
computer, please make sure that you properly configure it. You can
determine if the firewall software is preventing Internet access by
temporarily turning it off. If, while the firewall is disabled, Internet
access works properly, you will need to change the firewall settings
to function properly when it is turned on. Please refer to the
instructions provided by the publisher of your firewall software for
instructions on configuring the firewall to allow Internet access.
Note: The computer should NOT be connected to the port labeled “to
Modem” on the back of the Router.

Problem:
Setup Assistant cannot connect my Router to the Internet.
•
The Setup Assistant completed installation, but my web browser
doesn’t work.
If the Setup Assistant is not able to connect the Router to the Internet,
please check the following items:
•
I am unable to connect to the Internet. The “modem” LED on my
Router is off, and the “internet” LED is blinking.
1.
Use the troubleshooting suggestions within the Setup Assistant.
Solution:
2.
If your ISP requires a user name and password, make sure that
you have typed in your user name and password correctly. Some
user names require that the ISP’s domain may be at the end of the
name. Example: “myname@myisp.com”. The “@myisp.com” part of
the user name may need to be typed as well as your user name.
If you cannot connect to the Internet, and the “modem” LED is off, and
the “internet” LED is blinking, the problem may be that your modem and
Router are not connected properly.
Solution:
1.
Make sure the network cable between the modem and the Router
is connected. The cable should be connected at one end to the
Router’s “to Modem” port, and at the other end to the network port
on your modem.
2.
Unplug the cable or DSL modem from its power source for three
minutes. After three minutes, plug the modem back into its power
source. This may force the modem to properly recognize the
Router.
3.
Unplug the power to your Router, wait 10 seconds, and then
reconnect the power. This will cause the Router to reattempt
communication with the modem. If the “modem” LED on the
Router is not lit after completing these steps, please contact Belkin
Technical Support.
4.
Try shutting down and restarting your computer.
If you continue to have no Internet connection, reference the section
titled “Manually Configuring Network Settings” (page 71 of this User

Solution:
Solution:
1.
If the “modem” LED is blinking, and the “internet” LED is solid,
but you are unable to access the Internet, there may be thirdparty firewall software installed on the computer attempting to
access the Internet. Examples of third-party firewall software are

Norton Personal Firewall.
2.
If you have a “PPPoE” connection, your ISP will assign you a user
name and password and sometimes a service name. Make sure the
Router’s connection type is configured to PPPoE and the settings
are entered properly. Please refer to the section entitled “Alternate
Setup Method” for details on changing this setting.
If you do have firewall software installed on your computer, please
make sure that you properly configure it. You can determine if
the firewall software is preventing Internet access by temporarily
turning it off. If, while the firewall is disabled, Internet access works
properly, you will need to change the firewall settings to function

3.
You may need to configure your Router to meet the specific
requirements of your ISP. To search our knowledge base for
ISP-specific issues, go to: http://web.belkin.com/support and type
in “ISP”.
Please refer to the instructions provided by the publisher of your
firewall software for instructions on configuring the firewall to allow
Internet access.
If you are still unable to access the Internet after disabling any firewall
software, please contact Belkin Technical Support.
1.
If you cannot connect to the Internet, the “modem” LED is on,
and the “internet” LED is blinking, the problem may be that your
connection type may not match the ISP’s connection.
2.
If you have a “static IP address” connection, your ISP must assign
you the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address. Please
refer to the section entitled “Alternate Setup Method” for details on
changing this setting.

Problem:
• 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.
Solution:
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 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.
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.
Changing the wireless channel—Depending on local wireless traffic
and interference, switching the wireless channel of your network can
improve performance and reliability. The default channel the Router
is shipped with is channel 11; you may choose from several other
channels depending on your region. See the section on page 40 entitled
“Changing the Wireless Channel” for instructions on how to choose
other channels.

3.
After selecting your WEP encryption mode, you can type in your
hex WEP key manually, or you can type in a passphrase in the
“Passphrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from
the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. You must now set
all of your clients to match these settings. A hex (hexadecimal) key
is a mixture of numbers and letters from A-F and 0-9. For 128-bit
WEP, you need to enter 26 hex keys.
G+ MIMO Wireless Router
Click “Apply Changes” to finish. Encryption in the Wireless Router
is now set. Each of your computers on your wireless network will
now need to be configured with the same security settings.
WARNING: If you are configuring the Wireless Router or Access Point
from a computer with a wireless client, you will need to ensure that
security is turned on for this wireless client. If this is not done, you will
lose your wireless connection.
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 Apple AirPort product to see which
version you are using. If you cannot configure your network with 128-bit
encryption, try 64-bit encryption.

What’s the difference between 802.11g and draft 802.11n?
Currently there are three commonly used wireless networking standards,
which transmit data at very different maximum speeds. Each is based
on the designation for certifying network standards. The most common
