How to Configure Belkin Modem

By Kyle McBride

Belkin is a manufacturer of router/modems that allow the user to connect their home PC or network to the Internet through an Internet Service Provider (ISP). A CD-ROM is provided with the modem that will step you through a Setup Wizard to make the necessary configurations to connect to the Internet. If you don't have the CD-ROM or you don't wish to use it, these configurations can be made through the modem's web-based utility.

Step 1

Launch your web browser. Type 192.168.2.1 into the address field, then hit "Enter".

Step 2

Click "Login". For the first login, leave the password field blank and then click "Submit".

Step 3

Click "Internet/WAN" in the list of Quick Links on the left side of the screen. In this tab, you'll input the settings given to you by your ISP.

Step 4

Click "Connection Type" in the Quick Link list, select the type specified to you by your ISP, then click "Next". Input the appropriate settings for whichever Connection Type you selected, then click "Apply Changes".

Step 5

Click "DNS" in the Quick Link list. If your ISP didn't give you information specific to your DNS setting, leave the box for "Automatic from ISP" checked.

Click "Apply Changes" before navigating away from this screen..

Step 6
