Belkin wireless router problems

Q: Belkin wireless router problems

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 what to do now. My internet connection from my modem is fine and I've updated the firmware on my router.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

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.

Belkin G wireless router 2.4ghz-802.11g
Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN mini-card

I am having an odd problem with the wireless capability of my wireless router. When I first got my router I used the Software included but that did not work so I set up my network manually. For several months everything was working perfectly and both physical and wireless connections to the router were working. Recently the wireless capability of the router has stopped working, however it still emits a strong signal and functions perfectly as a non-wireless router.

The problem my laptop encounter when it is try to connect is that the connection status constantly displays "Authenticating". I have tried to rebuild the network, no effect. Have clicked on the repair button, it sits indefinilty on the step "renewing IP address". I have tried physically entering my IP address, no effect. I am positive the problem is not my laptop wireless card because it still fuctions perfectly on all other networks.

Is this a networking problem or is it just time to get a new router?

Ok, as the topic suggests, I currently have a 4 port wireless Belkin router and also a 5 port hub. The setup is like this, Cable Modem --rj45--> Belkin Router --rj45--> 5 port hub. There is usually one laptop using the wireless connection while most of the computers are connected to the hub via rj45. Our setup is like this because the modem/router is upstairs and then the hub is in the basement where most of our computers are.

So the problem is when we're using the router, it lags like hell. I did a test, I connected the hub directly to the cable modem. The expected and normal pings (10-30) came back. I was wondering if we might have a virus over the wireless network, or if someone might be leeching off of our wireless service.

Basically, I wanted to know if I could get the instructions to listing all the IP's/users connected to the router, especially wireless connections. Secondly, I learned somewhere to clean a network I'd have to connect each infected PC separately to the modem and clean that system of infections, and then connect each clean systems back onto the network. Is that right?

Much help is appreciated, thanks!

A:Leeching/problems with wireless Belkin router?

If someone is leaching your connection, they will probably show up in the DHCP table on the router. If they have a static IP then they may not.

Both my routers show me the mac addresses of machines that have connected to the router.

I would enable either WEP or WPA-PSK on your router... that should preven others from using your broadband.

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.

welcome to vist forums.
your belkin router is in 54g or 802.11g? is router equiped with MIMO?
you PC desktop or laptop?
most likly whats wrong is the area your computer is in.
eg:your router upstairs and your pc downstairs router have issues traveling vertical. Also this wireless card is it a BELKIN product? if not you may want to exchange it for a belkin product.the other options are to have a look at BELKIN USB wireless adabters which sit on your desk. and they recive much stronger signal.

Okay I'm trying to connect my Trendnet TEW-430APB access point to my Belkin wireless router with cable broadband. So I can use the access point with my ps3. So far I set up the access point as "AP-Client" and entered the WEP encryption. Okay so I hook up the access point to my PS3 and it connects to the internet/PSN but then after a few minutes it starts saying "the attempt to obtain an IP address timed out".And each time the access point reconnects it reassigns a new IP and I get the same error a few minutes later. So I went into the PS3 connection settings and turned off dhcp and entered in IP manually. Kept DNS 1 as the router IP and DNS 2 blank. So now it stays in for 30 minutes or more but then another error comes up. Which says "DNS error" and when I go to test the connection I get"IP address timed out".

So its obviously able to connect to the wireless router and the WEP key is correct. So what do you think it can be? Do you think it could be the access point is going bad? What causes an access point to go in and out when all settings are correct?Also i had to assign the access point a static IP to access the settings of the access point on my computer.

I recently bought a Nintendo DS for online gaming, and so when I couldn't get it online (Error code 52100, Nintendo's site not helping) I tried everything. Last week, I typed my own IP into IE and got my router page, then seen "Turn into Access Point" or something meaning change, and then it asked me to type a ???.???.???.??? style number into the IP box on that page. So I did and then it came up loading in top right hand corner. I waited and nothing so I F5'd it, then I lost my connection.

Then for a week I could only get internet (Wired) on my Xbox and neither Wireless nor Wired on anything else. But a few days ago, I read the customer support (MS, the one preloaded on the computers) and it said something about changing your IP settings, so I followed those steps and found my computer only wanted to use the DNS ___.___.___.___ the underscores being blanks. So I made it revert to what it should be with a reset button or whatever it was and now I get my Wired connection back on my Laptop.

But still when I hooked everything back up, no internet or network light on my wireless router.

Sorry for blabbing, but I really need it and after also recently buying an iPod Touch, really would like my Wi-Fi back.

My network needs to connect to 6 wired PCs and 1 wireless PC.

Right now the Linksys 4 port router connects to the ADSL modem and 4 PCs -and I want to add a new Belkin wireless router to provide a wireless LAN access and have 2 add'l LAN ports.

Therefore, can I, and how do I configure the devices, so that the ADSL modem would go into the Linksys router; the Linksys would provide LAN connection to 3 PCs and the 4th port would go to the input of the Belkin router, which in term would provide wireless access and 3 more LAN ports?


A:Combining Linksys Router and Belkin Wireless Router

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

I set up everything and if I have it wired it works fine but wireless it says can't find page when you try to get on the internet. I have set up networks before and never had a problem. first time I have used a Belkin router G+ I guess one of my question is this. I was reading on the Belkin site that it is already set for dynamic and that is for a cable modem and sounds like I should change it to pppoe for a DSL modem. would that make the difference. It is a brand new laptop and the wireless card is on and it sees the network and works when wired, it says it is connected wirelessly but wont get on the internet when not wired. Would the pppoe thing make a differnce? Please give me some help here. Thanks

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

Hello there,

I've installed a Belkin N1 Wireless Router for a client, and it seems to go down every night just in time for the morning. By go down, I mean that although clients are still connected to the SSID, no networking functionality (network drives, connection to the Internet) is available.

This is resolved by hard rebooting the router. Do you think there could be issues caused by cordless phones etc... that cause the connection to go down, without fail every night?

I've tried changing the Wireless options so that "Protected mode" (a setting that prevents interference from other wireless devices) is on, and I moved the connectivity to a different channel number.

Is there anything else that I could try?

A:Wireless set up with Belkin router?

I'm not an expert on wireless networking but I know just enough to be dangerous. You can connect several devices wirelessly to your router including your two laptops. However, everything does have to be compatible.

How did you set up your Belkin router? Did you set up a security protocol? WEP is an older less secure protocol. Perhaps your router was set up with WPA or WPA2 and the MAC is only compatible with WEP. Just a possibility.

Ok well first off I always come here for help and finally I have a need to post =P

In 2003 for Christmas I got an HP Pavilion a305w PC with a Belkin wireless router and adapter. It has worked fine until recently. I noticed that I keep getting disconnected from my network and the internet. My computer tells me that I am connected still and my Belkin Wireless Utility program says I have signal... but I cannot access network resources or internet resources. If I try typing in my router setup page it times out. This happens about every 10 minutes or if I transfer a lot of data and lasts for about 7 minutes. I have almost given up using my computer because I ran a networking cable directly from the router to my computer and there was no problem but my dad wont allow me to do it again. I do not know if there is some sort of interference or if my adapter is going bad. I have reformattes my computer several times, each time reinstalling the driver I got on CD and the driver from the Belkin Website. Still it does not work. I have found that by using the Belkin Wireless Lan Monitor program and hitting Re-Scan, it will search and find the network again and lets me stay on for about 10 more mins. It is getting really annoying and no one anywhere else can seem to help me.

By the way it is a Belkin 802.11b 11Mbps adapter - model F5D6050 (discontinued)

I have a laptop and a desktop both using the wireless connectivity with absolutely no issues for over a year now. About a month ago, I purchased a new Averatec notebook. Everything worked fine until Friday. All of a sudden, out of the blue, my wireless connection one the notebook is getting low and limited connectivity. I used to get Excellent and Good, now it even loses connectivity quite frequently.

I downloaded the October update for this Belkin wireless router model F5D7230-4 from the website, hoping that would help. I restored my new notebook to it original state at the time of purchase, thinking perhaps a file became corrupt. Checked the DHCP clients and lease time. Everything looked good there. (However, the new notebook was showing a lease expiration of January 1904 when I ran ipconfig /all from the command prompt.) Since installing the latest firmware update, that has now changed to January 2038. So at least that looks correct now.

Now here's the really strange part. The signal is Excellent when I sit right next to the router, but when I go upstairs, it becomes low or very low, or no connection at all. Whereas, my other laptop shows excellent at all the same spots in the house. I even tried disconnecting that one, just to see if the new notebook would get a better signal with that one turned off. It didn't work. As a matter of fact, the wireless connection info window pops up constantly telling me I lost connection, or I'm connected again.

I can access this network through my Mac laptop, although it cuts out now and then and then i change channels and get it back. but can't ever get my husband's Windows XP to connect. i have tried various channels - no luck. Any ideas?

My friend recently gave me his Belkin Wireless Router. It did not come with a manual so I have no clue as to what cord plugs in where and when I do plug it in how I get my computer to recognize it. It recognizes it and says I'm connected to it but then tells me that I have no internet connection. Could really use some help. My internet company won't come help me install it unless I pay them 60 dollars so this would be such a big help if anyone could kind of explain it to me. Thank you!

A:Need help. Trying to hook up a Belkin Wireless Router

Hi JCCCWerlein, and welcome to TSG.

I am not sure how much help we can offer if you don't tell us the model number and any hardware or version number of the router. It would not hurt to also let us know the brand and model number of the modem being used for your Internet connection as well as what operating system you are running on your computer.

Have you tried visiting the Belkin web site to see if you can download the correct user manual?

Hello all,

I've used TSG forums for a while, and have always been able to find my problem and solution without asking, until now.

A friend has recently bought a Belkin 54g wireless router on his XP system.
He's installed the software apparently with no probs.
The router also seems to communicate with his pc with no problems because typing into the address bar on IE as per the 'quick setup' instructions, goes to a splash screen that I think is located on the router, bacause all lights show green on it apart from 'the Internet' light which is completely off. This splash screen has a button on it to 'configure the modem' but when pressed, his pc goes through the dialup procedure with no success.

"He's installed the software apparently with no probs."

What software? What's the router's model?

"... his pc goes through the dialup procedure with no success."

What??? He has a dial-up ISP? What is his attempted network configuration?

Apologies if this is already threaded somewhere else; please link me to a solution if so.
I am currently setting up a new Belkin Wireless Router with built-in modem. It is an "N+N 2x300" dual band router for ADSL broadband connections.

The problem I am having is getting my Vista laptop to link up with the router and connect to the internet, using the Belkin software's router set up.
The router has been set up and is now working on my father's Windows 7 Sony laptop. However, originally the router was unrecognised by both the Vista and Windows 7 laptops. I accessed the router management and changed the 2.4Ghz channel. This made both laptops recognise the wireless network/router.

I then ran the set up programme, through the Belkin software, on the Sony Windows 7 laptop. After a couple of attempts it recognised the router and successfully connected to the internet. This laptop is now linked up and working well. Both the laptop and router have been restarted several times and connect again without problem.

I am now running the same process on my Vista laptop. However, the Belkin software's set up process fails to connect to the internet and complete the set up process. I have re-run this process about 30 times now.

I have tried alternative channels, restarting both pieces of hardware and have disabled all of my Norton stuff (as far as I can see). I am now at a loss. So I have turned to this forum for help.

Please can you help?

Thanks in advance... Read more

Hi everyone
Ok, newegg.com offered a combo deal for a dlink dir-655 with belkin F5D8013 N Wireless Notebook Card for $65.00 shipped so i jumped on this deal and ordered. but for some reason I'm unable to achieve speed of more then 54 \ 81 Mpbp ( transmit speed showing at 135 and receive speed at 54 and sometimes 81 Mbps ) .not sure if i am still overlooking a step or two or some kind of tweak in router setup that would help achieve the full 300Mbps.i searched thru d link forum for solution but came up empty.

dir-655 Hardware Version: A4 Firmware Version: 1.21
dir-655 Wireless setting as follows:
802.11 Mode : Mixed 802.11n and 802.11g ( 802.11n only with same results )
Auto Channel Scan : Enable ( also tried to lock to specific channels but same results )
Transmission Rate : Best (automatic)
Channel Width : Auto 20/40 Mhz ( locking into 802.11 only with 40 Mhz gave me same results)
Security Mode : WPA-Personal
WPA Mode : WPA2 Only Cipher Type: AES

since I'm not to tech savvy i did not try to tweak any other setting in router so all other settings are at the factory defaults.(other then the wireless setting as per above). if anyone can suggest a solution to increase my speed it would be greatly appreciated.
here are the links for both the router and wireless card:

I just bought the Belkin G+MIMO Wireless Router. I have everything connected, all the lights are on, yada yada. Why can't my laptop connect with the internet, the wireless light is on. Do I have to buy an adapter?


A:Solved: Belkin Wireless Router

do you know if your laptop came with built in wireless? if so, you should not need to buy an adapter. look for an icon down by the clock that says something like "wireless connection", "wireless assistant" or something like that. if you have more than one, let us know, that might be important as well. if you do have built in wireless on the laptop, make sure it is switched on ( some laptops have a switch for the built in wireless so you cant turn it off when it is not needed, to conserve battery power when not plugged in) it will usually have a blue light with a symbol that looks like an antenna with waves coming off of it.

Hi Everyone

I have the above wireless router and am struggling with the speed offered. BT tested my line today and I have a capacity of 6.8 meg. When I plug a cable into my laptop I get 1 meg and if I use the wireless router it goes down to 54mbps - is this the capacity of the wireless router or is there something I can do to increase my speed?

Thanks Everyone!

A:Belkin N wireless router F5D8233-4v3 HELP!!!

Welcome to TSG.
I believe that the 54mbps that you refer to is the potential speed of your home network link,not the actual speed.
How did you speed test the wired and wireless links?
Was it faster before or is this a new network?
