Belkin International Inc. is a California based organization that has been in the business since 1983. Their products which range from LCD to USBs are high class. Their router, called Belkin Router is one of the best routers available in the country.

All the electronic devices which are connected to internet have an Internet Protocol (IP) address. Similarly a router also has a factory set IP address.

To find out the WAN IP address of a Belkin Router (or any other router for that matter), here are the instructions to follow:

  • Make sure that the Belkin Router is connected to your computer.
  • Open any web browser.
  • Type http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar of the web browser.
  • Press Enter to continue.
  • Whether or not, the Belkin Router is connected to the internet, it will load a page which will be the Belkin Router’s home page.
  • In the centre of the page you will find Internet Settings.

In the Internet Settings, you will find the WAN IP address of the Belkin Router you have been looking for. You can also change your router’s IP address.
