i have a belkin F5D9230-4 router, which connects to both my laptop and my pc. neither one is connected with a cable, both are wireless. the problem i have is, i want to secure the network, so i downloaded the "belkinsetupassistant", off their website, which talked me through the securing procedure. only problem was, i couldn't get my pc to accept the network key that i had saved to a flashdrive, as instructed by the setup assistant. i eventually had to turn the security back off, and rang a friend. he told me to go to 192.168.2.1 on the internet, which allows me to log-in, and set it up there. so we did this, and it worked. my network was secure, and both laptop and pc worked. this morning though, my laptop wouldn't connect. it spent ages trying to acquire the network address, and eventually came up with an error. my only option was to reset my router, which is now un-secure again. can anyone please help with this?
