How to Install the Belkin Wireless G Router Without the Software

Every router is equipped with a router utility that can be accessed using a Web browser. This allows you to manually setup the router, but also make adjustments after you have initially set it up. Normally, the router is packed with a CD that assists you in setting up the wireless settings, but you can use the router utility instead.
