From the PC connected wired to your Actiontec click http://192.168.1.1 - admin is the username and password is the password - unless it was changed when it was installed. Click the Wireless Setup icon near the top, take the check mark out of Enable wireless and click OK.
Close that browser
To setup the Belkin
Shut the PC down, go back to the routers and plug the PC back into the Actiontec, plug an Ethernet cable into one of the other ports on the Actiontec and the other end into one of the ports on the Belkin. Boot the PC and make sure you can surf. See if the wireless PCs can connect.
- Shut the PC off that is connected to the Actiontec
- Set the Belkin near the Actiontec
- Plug the power cable for the Belkin into the wall(or power strip) but don't power the router
- Unplug the cable running from that PC to the Actiontec
- Plug it into one of the 4 ports grouped together on the Belkin
- Plug in the router
- Once the lights have settled down, using a straightened paper clip push and hold the reset button for a few seconds
- Turn that PC back on
- Goto 192.168.2.1
- On the left side, click Use as Access point. If it asks for a password, just leave it blank
- click beside Enable
- It will ask for an IP address and subnet mask - in the IP address it will have 192.168.2.254 change the 2 to a 1 so its 192.168.1.254 leave the mask the same
- Click Apply changes
- When it comes back up, enter the address again and click on LAN Settings.
- See if it turned off the DHCP Server, if not click beside Off
- click Apply Changes
If you had security setup through the Actiontec you will need to disable it and set it up for the Belkin. Just surf into the Belkin with http://192.168.1.254 and click on Wireless and you can set the SSID and whatever security you want. When you click Apply Changes you'll get disconnected but if you look at the address bar it will have something like 192.168.1.254/post.cgi or something like that, just click in the address bar and delete the /post.cgi and hit enter.
You'll also want to set up a new password - that is under System Settings bottom left side
As far as the "old USB adapter" if it works then there is no need to replace it =)
