Points to remember
When the IP address is changed from the Router/PC then services are blocked from Belkin. The reason for this is that the Belkin network database is not having any information about the new IP address from your new system. It is your work to update the new IP address into the database of Belkin’s Network. If the setup is for the first time then login using PC so that the network can easily obtain your IP address.
