The login in Belkin routers is very easy compared to routers like Netgear, Dlink etc. There is only one address for Belkin router login, and that is 192.168.2.1. It is different from 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.0.1 that other companies use. It is not clear why Belkin does this, maybe to differentiate itself. This approach is not great as it gives another thing to remember to people dealing with various brands of routers.
Belkin does not require a password the first time you login. But it is highly encouraged to add a password so as to give a layer of protection against cyber attacks. So just pressing Submit will allow you to access the login page.
