It is very important to change the bandwidth of your Belkin router in order to ensure seamless and uninterrupted data services. If you wish to change the bandwidth of your Belkin600 router, then follow the steps mentioned below:
- Connect the computer to the router with the help of Ethernet cable. Connect one end of the cable to the LAN port of the router and other to computer.
A quick tip: If you are using the wireless connection to connect the computer to the Belkin router, then skip step 1 and move to step 2 directly.
- From the computer, open any browser like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
- In the address bar, enter 192.168.2.1 carefully. This is the official IP address of the router. Press ‘Enter’ from the keyboard. You will be taken to the web-interface page.
Note: If the above-mentioned address doesn’t work on your router, you can read the online guided manual. Enter routerlogin.com in the address field. This will also take you to the web-interface page.

- After this, the settings are successfully configured on your router.
Things to know about Bandwidth and Throughput value.
As we know that the router collects the incoming packets and send them to the desired device on the network. The rate at which it transfers and speed of the signal depends on the bandwidth and throughput.
Let’s find out the difference
Most of us use these terms interchangeably, but they are quite different in meaning. Bandwidth refers to the rate of data transfer where no obstruction or hindrance is available in-between the devices and the router. Throughput is the actual data transfer rate at the user’s end considering all the inconveniences and hindrances.
Bandwidth: It is defined as the amount of data transfer per unit of time through the network.
Throughput: It is a real amount of data transferred in a given unit of time from the network.
If a router has a capacity of 100 Mbps connection, then this is the maximum data that the router’s bandwidth can offer. To check the throughput, start downloading the data and check the window showing downloading in progress.
In practice, the throughput is always lesser than the specified bandwidth, as there are several factors diminishing its value like network topology, hardware capability, given time frame and obstructions are responsible for reducing the amount of bandwidth.
