Hello. I recently bought a Belkin Wireless N router. Today I was editing the settings, and accidentally turned on the "Use as Access Point" setting, in which I was then assigned a new IP address(?). Since then, the router does not send a signal wirelessly or to other devices, my PC is the only thing that can receive internet connectivity. I ran ipconfig under cmd and my IPv4 changed from to I really have no idea what this means. I currently have cable internet with Time Warner, using a modem, to the belkin router, to my PC. I just want to disable the "Use as access point" setting, since it was fine before that, but I cannot access the router settings (used to be under Please help me change it back to use regular wireless router settings. This is driving me crazy. I can post anything you ask for. Thank you in advance.

Hi joseph121 and welcome to our forums.



Its good to see  that you are offering advice on the forums here, but just a word to the wise.....do check the age of the topic and the dates of the posts.... as you are posting potential solutions to topics that are 6, 7 or 8 years old.....


Don't be disheartened though, but do check the dates!
