The login credentials, as well as the procedure differ slightly for Belkin as compared to other routers, so make sure you go through the entire guide to get a hang of it.
What is Belkin Router’s Default IP Address? [192.168.2.1]
Consider the default IP address to be the address where you can find the router’s web-interface. You’ll need to reach the web-interface in order to make just about any change to the router.
For e.g if you wish to change your WiFi password (or username), change firewall settings, block/unblock sites, or change the login credentials for this web-interface by itself.
All of that, and everything else concerning the router needs to be changed from its default IP address.
Every website URL out there has an IP address. It’s alphabetical in most cases only to make it easy for humans to understand, remember and use. In reality, every website URL is actually an IP Address. When we type www.abcd.com our browsers actually read it as 10.23.455.12 (a numerical representation of the website’s URL= the IP Address).
Even though the term “IP ADDRESS” may seem like a geeky term to some, it’s actually just a website.
So you’ll need the IP address (website address) of the Belkin router in order to reach the website (web-interface) and make changes to it.
The Belkin router default IP address is- http://192.168.2.1/
What is Belkin Router’s Default Username and Password?
The default Username and Password are the credentials which are set by the company. These are the same for each brand’s unique model, however at times may differ based on a difference in model even for routers from the same company.
As mentioned above, the IP address would only take you to a web-page. But you’d need the login username and password to actually be able to login to the router, right?
The default username and password for Belkin router differ from majority of the routers’ default login credentials, considering how its login page doesn’t ask for a username to begin with.
No password needs to be entered either, as the default password field is to be left blank!
How to Login Belkin Router at 192.168.2.1?
The login process too differs for Belkin. The first step however is the same, you need to enter the router’s default IP address (which is 192.168.2.1) into your browser’s URL Bar and hit enter
This would take you to the router-page, here you need to click on “login” on the top-right corner of the screen.
And then simply click “submit” on the next page without entering any password (unless you’ve manually changed it).
The login page also informs us that the default password field is to be left blank. Once you click Submit you’d be logged into your Belkin router web-interface.
How to Change Belkin Router WiFi SSID and Password?
One of the most common reasons why users login to the Belkin router is to change the Wifi SSID (name) and the Password.
Let’s look at how those details can be changed.
First, login to your Belkin router using the steps provided above.
Then, click on “Channel and SSID” under “Wireless” from the left-sidebar.
The right-pane would bring up details about your WiFi SSID. Simply edit the SSID. Note that the Belkin router lets you name both your bandwidths (2.4Ghz and the 5Ghz) differently for easy recognition in case you want that.
Changing the WiFi Password->
Unlike most other routers the Belkin router WiFi password can’t be changed from the same page as its SSID, rather you need to click on couple more links. Worry not, we’ve got the exact steps (with screenshots) for you over here.
In order to change the WiFi Password, you’d have to select “Security” under “Wireless” from the left-sidebar.
Then change the values for the “Pre-shared PSKs” for each bandwidth. The PSKs are your password.
So those were the basic steps on Belkin router login as well as getting things done on the web-interface. Note that the interface may slightly differ based on website updates, router model etc.
However, the basic concept remains same. Just find the options and change their values no matter where they’re located.
