Problems with ABN adapter and Belkin Pre N Router

Q: Problems with ABN adapter and Belkin Pre N Router

Hello all, I am desperate for a solution. I purchased a new Abbra 2 alarm system with an Linkys ABN adapter. I have a Belkin Pre N router which works perfectly until I plug in the adapter. I have 4 wireless laptops that connect to the router.

All the PC's connect and work fine until I plug in the ABN adapter. THe ABN adapter gets it's DHCP address and for about 60 seconds all our connected. THen the wireless computers drop the connection. I have tried to talk to Belkin, Next Alarm and have not been able to find a solution. Any suggestions.. Thanks

Preferred Solution: Problems with ABN adapter and Belkin Pre N Router

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Problems with ABN adapter and Belkin Pre N Router

I can't imagine the ABN adapter doing this, it's just another Ethernet device.

Just on a lark, can you take that adapter to a friends network and see if just plugging it in creates the same issue on a different network?

Hi, we have a network in our house running off a Belkin router. We have one computer currently connected to it using a Netgear WG111V2 adapter.
The problem that i am having with it is that it is very erratic. It always seems to have full signal but it will just disconnect for no reason sometimes, this can be solved by repairing (sometimes, othertimes it requires a reboot) it but is still very irritating.
Sometimes it will be connected to the router but wont let you on the internet even though the internet light is displayed on the router.
I dont know if it is a problem of the adapter as i used to use it on a laptop in another room even further away from the router so distance isnt a problem either! When i did use it on the laptop however i had no problems with it, the connection was solid and it never disconnected.
The main annoyance i play an online game and it will be fine for a few minutes then say 'Connection Problems' for about 5 seconds then be fine again. Sometimes it can do this regularly othertimes rarely. The fact that it says connection problems suggests that the internet has disconnected, as this is what it does when the internet completely turns off, which it does quite often while im playing.

I really am at a loose end with it, its driving me mad!
Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Belkin router/ Netgear Adapter Problems.

I hyave a wg111T wireless adapter and it does the same thing. I called ntgear sevral time and finally i changed the IP settings from dhcp to static and 192.168.1.25 subnet 255.255.255.0 and a local DNS to 4.2.2.2 and sec. 4.2.2.1 . never lost the connection since. Try that and c if it solves your problem. if it does look for a local dns server you could point to. (this is for the pacafic North west)

Hello.

I'm having difficulties finding adapters for my 2 x 5V 2A Belkin routers.
I know the Sony PSP adapters fit so I ordered 2 from ebay but they have been wrongly described and are actually 5V 500mA.
They power up the routers but are they OK to use long term?

Best regards,
SNB

Welcome to TSG!!

I'd continue looking for the proper output power supplies. The 500mA may work for a while, but they may be being overstressed and will likely burn out prematurely.

Help please! I have a Linksys Wireless Router set up on my desktop and have been able to network my husband's laptop without any problems. Now we have decided to add my son's desktop to the network. I purchased and installed the Belkin USB network adapter but cannot get the two computers to recognize each other. The desktop with the router has XP Home and my son's is running Windows 98.

Hiya, I'm struggling to get my wireless internet set up. Basically I have a Belkin adapter 802.11g. Its the F5D7050 v3. And then a netgear router supplied by my ISP (Sky in the UK). I can connect to the internet fine when using the ethernet cable to router, but when I try wireless it doesn't work. Turned off the firewalls, all the encryption keys are the same and I think that it does actually connect but thinks it hasn't. I say this because I can't use firefox or ie to go online, but I can update certain programs (like superantispyware). I can also ping with no loss. When I look at the status of the wireless connection it has no packets being sent at all and a few being received. The signal strength for the router is excellent and it connects with no problems up to that point. At the moment I am using WZC but also tried using the Belkin software (which showed that the computer was connecting to the router, but the router not connecting to the internet. I could not alter the router settings when it said this though...)

Any ideas as to what could be causing this? Help would be greatly appreciated!!

In October 2009 received Netgear wireless router as part of Sky broadband package. PC is 2004 Packard Bell Desktop, spec P4, 512MB ram, Geforce 2.
Using a Belkin USB G-Mimo Wireless adaptor, 3003, and Belkins wireless utility software, pc does connect to net fine. During a download of say more than 5MB, it will slow from 200kb/s down to 50kb/s then disconnect from net. If I do nothing, but wait, it will re-connect again in about one minute. I have freshly installed the windows xp home onto a formatted C: drive, all updates are done, no other unusual hardware is used. Windows is activated, there are no other problems.
Anyone had this happen to them, or might know what might be wrong ?

Hi

In my humble opinion some of the USB sticks are flaky as hell,

can you try another way of connecting it wirelessly, such as a borrowed PCI card.

or can you plug the PC in with a cable and see if it still does it.?

I had my computer wired right to the internet, then my girlfriend got a laptop, so I went and got a wireless router(netgear wgr614) and set it up and figured why not make my desktop wireless so I got a cheap belkin usb network adapter and had it running for lamost a year and a half now.

well the router stopped working so I went and got a d link 2310 wireless router. got the laptop on it no problem. but cant get the belkin to work. it finds the network, logs onto the router, but NEVER gets the internet. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled the software for it as well with no luck. could it be the usb adapter? wy would it work with netgear and not with d link???

and I know it is not a range problem because my pc is in the same rom as the router and about 9-10 feet between antennas. I dont wanna just go out and buy a dlin adapter and have it not work either.
 

A:Belkin wireless usb adapter won't work with d link router?

dont know why I didnt try this out before, but if I login to the router and get rid of any security, then my desktop get srigh ton and gets the internet, but wih security enabled, it will only log on to the router, and not access the internet....


any ideas?

Hello everyone,
I have just built a new PC as of last night and I am having problems connecting to the internet. I bought a Belkin N150 F9L1001 USB adapter for the computer so I could access the internet but, sadly, it is not working for me. The problem is that every couple of minutes while I am connected, it will show my network as not having any internet access. When this shows, I troubleshoot the program and windows shows that it had reset the network adapter (because "the default gateway is not available) and then I'm connected to the internet again. I've been all over the forums here and have tried to fix the problem to the best of my abilities. I have even tried using the adapter in a different computer, which worked, so I know we can rule that out. Anyways, any help provided would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Bought this adapter a few hours ago, and after attempting to install it, have decided to console trusty techspot for advice. Basically, I followed the "Easy 2-Step Guide" that Belkin provide, to its entirety, and the result was that when I opened up the Belkin wireless utility it couldn't find a signal, or even a network.

So, first thing's first: move closer to the router. So I did...to about 1.5m away, and still nothing. Hmm. Then, after much playing around with useless settings in the utility I decided to call Belkin support. The guy spent 20 minutes getting me to do this and that, and ended up saying that I had to change a channel or something on my BT router. Does anyone know if this could be the answer to getting connected to the network, and if so, how do I change the channel thingy?

As always, any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I recently installed Windows Vista home premium x64 on my Athlon 64 system and
plugged in my Belkin F5D7050 wireless G usb adapter, only to find out that,
of course the drivers didn't work. Went online, using my laptop, downloaded the latest and greatest drivers and I installed the driver and the device still doesn't work.
For instance, when I set it to search for wireless networks nearby (which it
should find mine), the activity light on it doesn't even flash once. It
hasn't flashed ever since I plugged it in after installing Vista. So my
question is, is there a driver that would work with my adapter, and if there
isn't could you recommend a low cost wireless usb adapter that would work
with Vista home premium x64? Thank you for your help, sword182.

A:Belkin wirelss adapter problems

If still under warranty, or a purchase agreement, return it for a replacement...
Otherwise, you will be fixing it over and over until you trash it...
Alternately, you should try a quick fix, but totally removing the Belkin Software, using a registry editor if necessary to get all of the old install removed.
Then reboot, and reinstall.
Some folks on TechSpot love Belkin... But we find theire are sometimes differences from model to model, and from which part of which country they are purchased.
Belkin does not manufacture these units, as I understand their system, but has them built and packaged under contract. And the ones we get in for repair vary a lot.
If you can trade it for another brand, from where you purchased it, you might be able to expect better luck.

If it is like my wireless D-Link gaming adapter, you connect it to the PC via the LAN port and access the software built into the gaming adapter by typing its IP address into the browser address box. Once you access it, you can make any changes. You will need instructions as to what IP address to use. Go to Belkin's website for specific info.

I'm actually using my adapter not for a gaming console but for a PC.

Hi,

After much deliberation, i bought myself a belkin Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway router and 2 Wireless PC Cards for my home network. I tried installing the drivers for the gateway, and it couldn't find it. So I tried the alternative method. It said to open up the web brower and type '192.168.2.1' to access the settings of the router.... it couldn't find it also.

I have tried almost everything possible; new cables, changing IP and subnet mask addresses but nothing seems to work.

Does anyone have any ideas at all on how to access this settings page on the router itself?

Thanks very much in advance,

** The 3-step quick install instructions make it look so easy
 

A:Belkin Router Problems

First off, to access the router's configuration page, you need to use a wired connection, the wireless connection won't do it.

If you have a CAT5 patch cord connected from a NIC on one machine to one of the LAN ports of the router, try the following:

- Set TCP/IP properties to obtain IP and DNS addresses automatically.

- Reboot and try the web browser with 192.168.2.1 again.

We use a Belkin Router with a Verizon Internet connection. This router publishes a wireless network with a router IP of 192.168.2.1, and all devices connected are tagged with IP addresses 192.168.2.x. Everything was working fine until recently when the main computer and router were moved. Something went wrong and now I cannot get my laptop to connect unless I disable the security features. It has WPA, WEP, and WPA2 options. When ever I use any of them the laptop allows me to configure the connection but for some reason won't save the options I use. The router says to use WPA with a TKIP or AES encyption. The laptop will not save the TKIP option and continues to return to AES. I believe this is the problem. Even when I get the settings to be accepted occasionally the computer tells me there was a "Problem applying the Profile" set up for this connection. I am at a complete loss of what to do other then leaving the security open. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello.

We used to be connected with Tiscali until a couple of months ago. When we were with Tiscali we were using a Belkin F5D7632-4 Wireless G router and, ok, so it kept dropping out, but we had wireless connection which was great.

When we changed to BT we were sent a BT Voyager 220V ADSL router which is connected at the moment via USB connection to the computer. When we try and plug the Belkin in we can't get a conenction to the internet, let alone have anything running on Wireless.

The signal speed is only as much as 512K on a good day .. but is that any reason why we can't get any sort of connection (wired or wireless) on the Belkin ?

Can anyone suggest another wireless router that may be better? I have an old BT Home Hub (the white one) - Is it worth trying that ?

Any advice would be appreciated

Basically, my XBox 360 has a static IP and when I enable DMZ with it's IP the rest of the computers on my Network stop working. I can ping but when I try to browse everything times out. As soon as I turn DMZ off everything works again except my XBox 360.

sorry if somebody has asked this before,i have searched but can't find anything that helps me,but then again i can be a bit thick!

i have been using a belkin g router model f5d7230-4 version 7001uk for about 2 years to run a wireless network for my laptop.The router was wired into my pc via ntl/virgin modem,this pc was running windows xp and my laptop is running windows vista.
problems have now started because i have a new pc running windows 7.i have attempted to set the router up in exactly the same way as i had before except this time after going through the whole installation process and the router attempting to connect to the internet 10 times i get the unhelpful error message :- 'problem connecting to the internet' and to contact belkin support team.
i have reset the router to factory settings

strange thing is my iphone picks up the wirless connection and connects to the internet with it,even though my pc won't.and my laptop can't even see the wireless network.

i can connect to the internet without router,just plugging cable into back of computer with no probs

please help

I have a Belkin n+ f5d8235-4 v2 and I have reset the router and then I had to manually reconfigure everything and I may have messed something up. The router has two blinking amber lights: the modem and internet lights.
-I began with my modem booted up, then I booted up my router while my modem and router were connected via yellow ethernet cable and another cable from my router to computer.
-First, I set up a new password
-Next, I went to Connection Type and set up - Dynamic, then entered my ISP host name and clicked apply.
-Next, I went to MAC address cloning, and just clicked apply as the boxes were already filled with characters.
-Next, I went to Channel and SSID and left everything the same except I changed my SSID name and took off the box marked broadcast SSID then clicked apply . The wireless channel was set to auto and current channel was 11 and extension channel was set to auto.
Next, I went to Security, Security Type: WPA-PSK, Authentication: WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK and entered a new PSK and clicked obscure PSK then apply
Next, I went to Guest Access and enabled radio, created ssid name, Security: WPA/WPA2 PSK, Authentication: WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK then entered the same PSK as before and clicked obscure PSK then apply.
For some reason, when I go back to both of the previous two screens, the new password I created does not show up, only my old one but when I type the new password into my wifi network, it connects.
This is as far as I have been and I'm not really sure w... Read more

Hi,

Came across a problem today I simply cannot understand. Setup a wireless connection between a laptop and a base unit - both using Win XP Home via a Belkin 54g ADSL Router

The base unit was physically connected to the router and the laptop, via wireless.

Both machines were setup via WEP 64-bit encryption.
Both machines were able to connect to the internet.
Both machines were able to share files between each other.
Wireless laptop was able to print via the network.

As far as I was concerned, job done, all OK.

Until the customer called me later on to tell me that ..... when he takes out the power cable from the laptop, he cannot get a wireless connection ??? The machine cannot find any network even.

Went through some checks over the telephone, still couldn't get it connected.

Put the power cable back into the laptop - after a short while, it found the network - connected again.

Never came across anything like this before. What has the network connection got to do with the power cable? Maybe it is something very simple - but I have never experineced this problem before.

So If you can help - i'd appreciate it.
Mac.

Hi guys,
I have a brand new Belkin N+ router. It was working fine from last 10 months. But recently , say from last 20 days happening a issue with the wireless router. the internet will work for few hours properly, suddenly Internet will cut off or wireless router hanged up for a few seconds. the led for internet will either go off or go orange. Sometimes even the modem led will turn off or go orange. It takes about 10 seconds then its back on or else I need to restart the router. After restarting the router, the Internet will work fine.

Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Much appreciated.

A:Belkin n+ wireless router problems

If the modem is losing the connection, I'd start there. Make sure the connections to the modem and router are secure, make sure you have good power (a UPS is a good idea here).

Another thing that you can do is update the firmware to the latest available and then reset to factory defaults and reconfigure. You wouldn't happen to be using P2P applications now, would you? Those will drive many routers up the wall.

Hi,
Hope someone can help me.
I've got a Belkin router, and I've got one laptop connected to it with no problems.
I've bought another laptop & I can't connect to the router.
I've accessed the router online & got the Pre-shared Key (PSK) which I assume is the Network key that I'm being asked for, but it doesn't connect.
I don't get an error message, it just doesn't connect.
Am I doing something wrong.
Please be gentle with me, computers really aren't my thing!
Thank you so much.

My router works fine, but the problem happens ONLY when i set my xbox 360 outside of the firewall using the DMZ feature. The firewall is ON on my router and then i set my xbox outside of the firewall (which makes xbox live happy) BUT then my computers internet completely stops working.. the only way to get it to work is to turn OFF the firewall all together which then makes my xbox not happy while on live. It seems i can only have one or the other i dont get it, why is my computers internet cutting out when i set the xbox outside of the firewall? I'd set them both outside of the firewall if i could, but the xbox needs to have NAT set to open and the only way i can manage that is by using the DMZ feature (turning the firewall off completely doesnt seem to do it)

A:Belkin N wireless Modem router problems

well check and make sure your network security settings are all right and in place. Also, check the wireless settings on the laptop and make sure it is always set to connect your "home" network or wherever the network may be located. You might try resetting the settings to default also and try connecting everything again. Keep in mind you will probably have to re-enter any custom settings such as network name, passphrase for the network and also set up the proper security settings. I cant help you with the security settings however as i do not know how the belkin routers are set up.Post back here if needed.

Yay, so I have to retype all of this because being on/off/on/off the internet apparently logged me out and when I finally clicked everything that I wrote was lost. So here we go again...Unfortunately I am so frustrated that this description of my problem will not be as precise as my first one. Started with my girlfriends router burning plastic and being told by the Comcast guy its a fire hazard and she shouldn't use it. We buy a Belkin Basic F7D1301 v1 router from Best Buy, supposedly easy to hook up. Disc set up does not work, tells us to call the number. I access the router by typing in 'router' in the browser. (I've done a few other routers and they were all accessible by typing 191.168.1.1 or similar in the browser). Using any sort of security does not allow my Vista laptop to connect. It results in a "Local only" connection. Xp laptop is able to connect using security. Both laptops are able to connect without security. What results is both computers being connected for about 30 minutes, then both being kicked off and the only light on the router changing from green to orange. A power cycle will allow for about another 30 minutes until it happens again. I read some things about a DHCP lease. I tried turning off 'dhcp server' i believe. I'm pretty sure the laptop that I set it up on stayed connected all night, and the router light stayed green, but no other devices were able to connect. (I'm not entirely sure if tha... Read more

A:Belkin router random disconnects and other problems

you may want to type into notepad and then just copy and paste here - that way a disconnection will not make any difference
to all your writing , I know how frustrating that can be

lets separate the issues
1) you have one PC which will not connect to the wireless security , but will when no security is on the router
2) The internet intermittently disconnects all PCs from the router

lets start with 2) and get a solid connection with NO wireless security

so when the router disconnects - whats the name of the light turns from green to orange ?

would you do the following ipconfig /all and ping tests (instrutions below ) when its working and then do the same tests again when it disconnects - save the results and post back when you are reconnected

also post back xirrus - instructions below

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -
rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy

then reply here and

My Belkin router has stopped working
There was on orange light came on in the middle and the connection kept dropping
I contacted Belkin who told be install their update
Now it wont work at all I have no connection with it
Although all the lights are now lit.
It keeps saying downloading packets But goes on for hpours and no change
I found this page http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread63442.html
and did what it said
( To resolve your issue you need to configure your ip address in LAN (local area connection) manully so that you can log in to your Belkin router to reset back to default setting, and here we go, i assume that you are using windows XP operating system.
Start -->Control Panel-->Network Connection(if you are in Classic View) then Double click on your LAN(local area connection icon) --->Properties click--->go down to TCP/IP Internet Protocol Double click to open properties.
From there you need to switch to Manual IP Address not Automactic IP address by default setting.
In the box of IP Address you need to enter 192.168.2.2
Subnet Mask box 255.255.255.0 or 255.255.0.0 there will be one should working.
Default gateway box you need to plug in 192.168.2.1
Don't worry about DNS box , just leave it blank and click OK buttong to save.

Now you care open your browser and type in 192.168.2.1 and you are there. Then you can reset your Belkin back to default settings or if you remembered exactly what have you changed then you can go right there to fix... Read more
