A friend gave me a belkin n600. He removed the sticker with the log information on it, and does not know the device code. Is there any way to get it? I can connect to it just fine, and log in at 192.168.2.1 without issue...

Not sure... I think I'm confusing the "pin" number for WPS with the device code for another router...

I would disable WPS and set up the wireless manually as WPS poses a security risk
