How to install Belkin® Routers
Routers can be best described as devices that forward packets of data along computer networks. Routers determine the destination of the packets and help maintain the connection alive. Belkin routers are very popular all around the world. These routers are capable of supporting very fast networks. With Belkin routers, users can connect to networks and share and access information from other computers. Another added advantage of using Belkin routers is that they are extremely reliable and users can perform tasks such as unsupervised download/upload of very large files over the network. When installing Belkin routers on the system, users are advised to ensure that all applications or services running in the background have been stopped. This can be done using the task manager of the system. If unwanted services are not stopped, they might interfere during the installation process and inflict errors which would cause malfunction of the routers. Users must also remember to remove any errors within the system by cleaning the registry and repairing the OS before starting with the installation.
- Verify drivers
- Run Antivirus program
- Create Restore Point
Drivers are the link between the Belkin routers and the Operating System installed on the system. This implies that any issues with the drivers would directly affect the functioning of the routers. Users installing Belkin routers on the system are recommended to check and verify the compatibility, authenticity and type specification of the routers prior to the installation. Installation of incorrect router drivers can cause many problems with the working of the router.
Run Antivirus Program
Before starting with the installation of Belkin routers on the system, users are advised to run the antivirus program installed on the system. All partitions of the PC including unused ones must be thoroughly scanned. If malware are present within the system when the routers are being installed, the installation would get corrupted.
All users installing Belkin routers are advised to create a restore point prior to the installation process. The restore point must be created as a precautionary measure. If problems such as blue screen errors or multiple hardware malfunctions (as a result of driver clashes) do come up, system can be restored to ideal working state. It is also suggested to create a backup of all data on the system on a removable media.
