Belkin wireless router with vista-wired works wireless doesn't

Q: Belkin wireless router with vista-wired works wireless doesn't

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,
I'm trying to set up a wireless network for my parents. I have a Belkin Play N600 router (model F7D8302) that I'm trying to hook up to an Acer desktop running Vista. The modem is a Siemens Speedstream 4100. I have a cable going from the ethernet port of the modem to the modem port on the router. The pc is connected to one of the other four ports in the router. The wireless works fine, but I can't get the wired connection on the desktop working. The Internet light on the modem is not on, but the modem works fine when connected directly to the pc. I've tried power cycling and resetting everything, but it's still not working. Any ideas? Thanks.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

PING each remote computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. Open a command prompt as described above and type.

PING <ip address>
or
PING <computer name>

Where:
<ip address> - is the x.x.x.x IP address
<computer name> - is the computer name

A failure to PING is almost always a firewall configuration issue. Any failure to PING needs to be corrected before you go any farther.

Note: You can obtain the IP address and computer name of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG /ALL. This should work for any Windows version. The IPCONFIG /ALL display will provide a wealth of useful information for debugging your network connection.

Check your Services are Started on all PCs:

Computer Browser
DHCP Client
DNS Client
Network Connections
Network Location Awareness
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Server
TCP/IP Netbios helper
Workstation

Note: You can check the services in Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services.

All of these services should be started, and their startup type should be automatic.

I've got a regular desktop pc and a laptop. Both are running Windows 7.

If both machines are wired, file and printer sharing works like expected. If the laptop is on the wireless, things go sour...

The machines don't see each other, I can't ping the laptop from the desktop or vice versa. Strangely enough, if I ping the desktop from the laptop by IP address the desktop will reply. At that point the desktop will see the laptop too and sharing (file, printer & media) works fine. But if the connection is idle for a couple of minutes they won't see each other anymore.

I've tried all kinds of things: disabled IPv6 on both, reconfigured file and printer sharing, disabled the firewalls on both. But none of these changes have had any effect whatsoever. I have also tried to give everything the same name (SSID, workgroup and network name on the desktop) but that had no effect either.

More info:
- Wired and wireless clients are on the same subnet.
- The router is a Linksys WRT-350N
- AP isolation is disabled
- uPnP is enabled on the router

Does anyone have any clue how to fix this?

Can anyone help with a router issue. My PC, LAN CAT5, can see my NAS, also connected via CAT5, but can't see my laptop and my laptop can't see either wired device. Both computers run Windows 10.

The router is model F5D7234-4 V5 and Belkin won't help without my buying a plan. This capability never has worked even when both were Windows7. It used to not be a big issue, but now I bought a NAS to both backup files and swap them easily and the laptop is in the dark. I have looked at every setting on the router and nothing seems to address disabling/enabling traffic between the wireless and the LAN.

Thanks in Advance for any help

Routher: TRENDnet TEW-633GR 802.11n + Gigabit Router.
PC: Running Windows XP
Laptop: Running vista.

The laptop can talk to the internet. But when the PC tries to talk to the internet, through the router, it has problems. Most of the time I get no data back, but occasionally I'll get a little. Web pages always timeout. Though I've at least once had a ping return (with 75% Loss).

I don't think there is anything wrong with the cables because it is the same cable I used before I had the router and it worked fine.

Any ideas?

I have a home network. The PC (main) and 3 laptops.

PC is wired Modem-Router-PC

Laptops are wireless. The 2 laptops are able to pick up the signal and connect.

The 3rd laptop is XP.

Wireless-It will not pick up any signal in the networks. According to the computer, there is no network signals within range. (Which it is in range, for when I take 1 of the 2 other laptops that has connectivity in the same location, they pick up the signal just fine)

When I move the laptop to the pc and do modem-router-laptop with a wired connection, connection is fine.

Device manager shows PCMCIA card as a yellow question mark (needs correct driver). But I didn't think that the pcmcia card had anything to do with the wireless connection, as the slot in the laptop has always been blank.

It is a HP laptop, couple of years old.

Oh, it has worked before, maybe about 3 weeks ago, and as far as I know, no hardware/software changes have been made since then.

I have even tried to manually enter the SSID and security key, and still no luck.

I have made sure that I have all the windows update's done.

HP tech support was no help, as I kept on telling them about the pcmcia driver, they kept on telling me to install graphic/video card drivers.

Router is broadcasting SSID.

Any advice?

Oh, and will buying a PCMCIA card be an alternative fix to get a wireless signal?

Well, I just showed myself that essential IT question everyone should ask 1st.

I needed to enable the wireless switch on the laptop. It is amazing to overcomplicate things when all it is most of the time is a switch of a button, a restart, or cord unplugged.

Intalled a new router (Linksys Cloud 1200) yesterday. Immediately after that the 2 computers that were connected to the network could no longer access the internet. My laptop and my ipad can access the internet wirelessly. The laptop which was not connected to the network when I connected the router can access the network both wirelessly and wired. Printers attached to the network will print without a problem.

Finally I took an old computer out of storage (running WinXP) and hooked it up to the wired network. It too has no problems accessing the network. So have to assume the issue is a software issue with the two computers that were hooked up to the network when I changed the router.

I have read the posts here - I did a stack reset on one of the computers but no help. I removed Norton 360 and Team Viewer which in other posts people said they had issues with...to no avail.

Since I dont have a wireless connection to the 2 computers that cannot access the internet - I cannot download TSG SysInfo.

So I go through the setup process (I am setting it up on the MacBook) and it works fine while connected via ethernet cable to the mac. However, when using it wireless, it shows up in the network preferences area with a green light that says connected, but web pages do not load. It looks like they are going to, but it just says loading forever. I have the WPA security enabled and the device access list disabled. I am very new to networking and even fairly new to macs. I still cannot figure out the problem here. Any help would be much appreciated.

H'Okay, So I'm trying to hook up the internet to two computers.

The other(Windows XP) is hooked up to one of those stick-internet-recievy-thingies. (This thing: http://www.yinfor.com/blog/archives/images/dlink-wua-1340-wifi.jpg )

So, the one with the stick thing works all nice and dandy, but the one that's hooked to the router won't work. A pop-up thing comes up and says that both computers have the same IP. But, I thought that was supposed to be how it worked with a router?

So... I have no idea what to do about this. : S
Help?

 

A:Internet problem, wireless works, wired doesn't?

All devices on a network must have a unique IP address. If you have assigned one or both a static IP address then change it/them. If both are using dynamic addressing then shut them both down and unplug the router. Then plug in the router followed by booting the computers.

My guess is this is due to APIPA, but that really a problem that I'm aware of. also, i am able to ping internet addresses both by IP or URL from the laptop regardless of which connection is enabled.

OK, first off I'm a newbie to this forum, so hello all. And I'm also pretty much a newbie to Vista also, but know XP alot, so should be able to go along with any help. Here's the problem:
I had someone move into my old office & his computer (Dell, Vista Home, 1gbRam, 160GBhd, nVidia network controller) is now going to be the one wired directly into the router & modem with the rest of the 3 comps in the house getting wireless signal as they had been for the past 2 years.

When I first plugged his comp in & installed the Netgear router from the disk, the install screwed up in that his comp was getting the internet cause it was plugged via ethernet, but the rest of the house couldn't cause there was no wireless signal. Also shown by the wireless light not being on on the router, but all the other were, power, LAN port4, & internet.

So I uninstalled the router since wasn't working correctly unplugged it all from the comp to restart fresh.

Went and did the install again, but now the wired in comp is not getting any kind of internet signal at all either being plugged directly into the modem, directly into the router, or even trying use one of the wireless USB adapters that are running on the other comps just fine, on it right now, but even that way there was something not allowing it to install correctly and get an internet signal, just kept saying can connect to a local network but not to the internet, rebuild this, blah blah blah.

Many thanks to etaf!

I have been using a wireless USB adapter to connect to the internet, but it drops the connection at random times. I decided to run a wired connection to the router, but I can't seem to get it to work. The first time I tried I got this: "Error 651: Your modem (or other connecting device) has reported an error." So I looked it up.

The main things I found were a Windows 7 bug with the file raspppoe.sys and a problem with Virtual PC. I am running Windows 7, but do not have Virtual PC. The suggested fix was to replace raspppoe.sys with a "working" one from vista. I downloaded it from the Microsoft site and replaced the file. Now I get "Error 797: A connection to the remote access server was not made because the modem was not found." I am still able to connect via wireless.

This problem appears to be a variation on the hardy perennial "foo" doesn't have a valid IP configuration" problem.

My Win7 machine originally had a DSL connection through a router using an Ethernet cable, and it worked great. I used the same router for wireless and to connect with a home network to my other computers running XP Pro.
Then I changed to FIOS, and a new wireless router that had to be located in a non-wire-reachable location. No problem, a USB wireless dongle and the win7 box was happy again and could see the internet via wireless.

However. I could not connect the rest of my network, also in the non-wire reachable location. I want to use the main box, the win7 one, as the internet connection and connect the printers and other computers to it via cable and a switch. The LAN is showing as the dreaded Unknown Public connection which cannot be reset, the diagnosis is "doesn't have a valid IP configuration", and I've tried setting up ICS, making sure the security settings for files is NOT 128 bit, the IPV6 and 4 are set to automatically gather IP settings on all machines, and I'm running out of ideas.

Do you have windows updated? Also, Windows update can check for drivers automatically.

Do you have a LAN driver and wireless adapter driver installed? If windows update doesn't find them, look them up on your motherboard's manufacturer's website and your adapter's manfacturer's website, respectively.

Follow this link to uninstall/reinstall wireless adapter: Internet speed suddenly slow?. Believe it or not, It may help with your problem.

My Netgear WGR614v6 router stopped functioning as a wireless hub several weeks ago. The two PCs that are connected by cable to the router still work fine. Only the wireless devices do not connect.

The symptoms with my Sony Vaio laptop (Windows Vista SP1) are that it "sees" the network and attempts to connect, but takes longer than usual to resolve the connection and then either announces "connection unsuccessful" or "connected". Either way, what I get, as confirmed in the Network & Sharing Centre, is a "local only" connection, with no internet access and an inability to "see" any of the other PCs on the network.

The laptop is about 2m from the router and the signal strength is fine. I have used the laptop on several other networks successfully since the problem first appeared. The problem predates the installation of Vista SP1, which I did only last week.

I have tried the following fixes without success:

1. Restarting the router and cable modem and all PCs numerous times.

2. Updating the firmware for the WGR614v6 to version "V2.0.19_1.0.19".

3. Disabling the WEP settings and trying to connect to the router as an unsecured network.

4. Re-enabling the WEP settings and re-setting-up the WEP keys on the laptop.

5. Ensuring that the aerial/antenna is secured and pointing up; pulling the router out from under its shelf and into the open.

I purchased a Wireless N+ router model F5D8235-4 about a month ago. I did this b/c the wireless G router I still own "stopped working" according to the comcast technician that came to my house to fix my internet connectivity problems. My new router works flawlessly with my Mac. My XP machine which is about eight years old connects with no problem. I just bought a Net book and it connected with no problem for about the first week, and now it doesn't want to connect to my home network any more. It is a windows seven machine. The Vista machine I have is a dell and worked for about 1/2 hour and wont connect wirelessly anymore. Ive since plugged it in with a cable and it works. I've tried all sorts of things including unplugging the modem, removing the battery and unplugging the router and plugging in the modem, then the router and... failure. I dont understand why this is happening. Both the vista and the seven models pick up the signal and say that it is strong, but wont connect.

I have just installed a BelkinF5D7634-4A-H wireless router and cannot get a wireless connection with WPA2/PSK security. I could get this with my old router (Netgear). The laptop will connect wirelessly to the router, but not the internet, although the internet light is lit on the router. My neighbours can connect (when I entered the password) so this seems to be some sort of communication problem between my laptop and the internet or the router. I can get a wireless connection with WEP but do not want to use this as it is less secure. Currently I have disabled wireless and am using a wired connection. I have Vista Home operating system and, having searched the internet, this seems to be a common problem. However, I have not found a solution I can understand - I have very limited experience in this area. Can anyone help talk me through how to set this up in very simple terms?

Yesterday on my personal laptop (Dell E1505 running XP SP3), I got a message box saying something about port forwarding and that I wouldn't be able to get to my website, or something like that. Unfortunately, I didn't pay much attention to the message and dismissed it. Now, I can't get to the internet using wireless. Here are some details:
Another laptop connects to my wireless network and the internet just fine

I've checked the event log and can't find anything relevant around the time of the message
Connecting to the network/internet with ethernet cable works fine.
I'm definitely connected to my wireless network because I was able to open shared files on another PC
Other, likely non-related issues:

Sometimes I get an error regarding the display adapter driver.

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

Hi there,

I've recently bought two new laptops, running Vista, and am having trouble wirelessly connecting them to my wireless network on my Belkin 54g Router. I can see the network I need to connect to, and the signal is 100% but when I try to connect it keeps saying disconnecting and something about WLAN . Unfortunately, i'm not very technical. I just about managed to follow the Router's inital set up.

Not sure whether you need to know but when the Router was first set up I set up two passwords, a main password and a guest password.

Also not sure whether you need to know but the network will allow me to plug my LAN cable in and will let me connect no problem.

I have successfully connected my old PC to the desired network, wirelessly, with the use of the Belkin Wireless Adaptor.

I hope there is someone who can help me with my problem.

Thanks in advance

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.

cheers,
LiverKing.
 

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.

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?

Hi Guys,

I have a win7 desktop upstairs with all of my media on it. I also have a winXP laptop that I would like to use as a media center running xbmc connected to my tv downstairs. I have set up a workgroup so my laptop can access the media stored on my desktop and everything works great when they are both hardwired to my router (Linksys E3000). However, as soon as I unplug my laptop from my router and switch to the wireless connection I can no longer ping my desktop or access the shared folder (internet still works fine on the laptop, it just cant see my desktop anymore). If I plug it back in to the router, everything works again.

I have checked a lot of forums but haven't found anyone who really seems to be having the exact same issue as me. This one seems to be the closest I can find however I tried most of the solutions mentioned there without any luck. I would love some fresh ideas if you have any, very close to just saying forget it and buying a new router (if that is even the issue but it's all I can think of).

The exact error message I get when I try to access the shared folder is "\\INFINITY\Media is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found."

OK, first time poster, long time reader - good work!

Previously
I've got a Dell Desktop (Win 7) that was ethernet cabled into a router, and the router was wireless with other PCs that were brought into the house. Then one day I lost the Internet connection on the Desktop, with no lights on the router for the wired connection. I plugged in my laptop (XP) and confirmed that the wired part had stopped working even though the wireless internet connection still worked OK.

So I decided to get a new shinier router:
Belkin Wireless N Router F5D8638-4 v2 with
Belkin Wireless N Adaptor F5D8053

I got the router set up and connected to the internet OK. The wires worked with my laptop(XP) and I got the wireless part working OK too, using the laptop's internal card and trying out the new wireless N adaptor. So all my cabling and the new kit works fine on Windows XP.
Problem #1:
My Windows 7 desktop PC won't connect to either the wired or the wireless connections.

The Ethernet connection won't "pop up" when connected. There is a driver in Driver Manager but it doesn't reconize connections. There are no ethernet connections in the network connections display. The cables work fine with the XP laptop. I'm quite stumped on this one tbh.
Problem #2:
The wireless adaptor won't work. The driver installs and detects the wireless network (WPA-PSK) and takes the WPA key OK but then goes to "Limited Access".

I am using a Netgear MR814 Cable/DSL Wireless Router to share a DSL connection. I have it upstairs connected to the modem and one computer. Downstairs I have four computers that need to be networked and have access to the connection. I have a D-Link DWL-810+ Wireless Bridge to communicate with the Netgear wireless router upstairs. I want to connect this wireless bridge to a Netgear RT314 Broadband Router. When I plug the Wireless bridge directly into one of my computers' ethernet ports I am able to connect to the internet. If, however, I plug it into the routers "Internet" port, I am unable to communicate with the bridge. Whenever I try to access the wired router's configuration utility(192.168.0.2) it asks for a password lets me access the main menu, but then I lose connection to the setup utility and have to reset the modem to be able to do the same thing again. This last issue only began to occur after I decided to plug the D-Link Bridge directly into my computer.

I realize that this is a rather extensive list of problems but help on any one of them would be great. I also realize that there are other ways to do this with different equipment, but different equipment is not free (The wired router was given to me) So if anyone knows anything that could get these working for me I would really appreciate it.

Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I've trawled the net for ages but have found nothing. I believe I have a unique situation here and would love some help from some net savvy people. I have strong computing skills, but keep away from networks if possible. Hope someone here can help, would really appreciate it.

Here's my current setup:

It all works well, internet is fine, I'm happy.

Why I want to share this network connection:
I have a couple of iphones and a Nintendo Wii and we would like to connect them to the the laptops internet connection.

Other things I've tried first:
I DO understand "Connectify" is out there and have tried it but it just fails every time I've tried it, the devices that try to connect all just sit there trying to connect and time out.

A:Unique Q: USB Huawei Wireless Modem to feed house via Belkin Wireless N Modem Router

You enable Internet Connection Sharing on the internet connection and configure the Belkin as follows.

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) 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 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

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. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers... Read more

Hi.
I have a problem for which none of the tenths of solutions I've found work.

I have a router configured as an access point for both wireless and wired connection. Wireless works OK. Wired LAN does not, at the moment. I have no idea why this might be, as I've tried different checks to make sure everything is set up properly.

First of all in Network and sharing center I can see that I am connected to a network that is connected to Internet, my IP, gateway, dns are all exactly what they should be. Windows knows there is a connection to the Internet but I can't access it with LAN.
I also have windows XP and linux installed and both work perfectly.
I have this router for about 2 years now and the only OS's that gave me any trouble were Vista and 7 (though I didn't keep vista to long).

I have to mention that most of the time Lan in windows 7 works, just not these couple of days.

I've reset my router a couple of times, changed the order of the cables, took a look at the firewall but nothing works.

I've inserted the main Internet wire cable directly into the computer and it works.
After installing the system all works OK, and without any other changes it stops.
Sometimes it just works, sometimes it does not. I think that it usually stops after I take out the lan cable for a few hours while the computer is running, restart and after that no business.

As I said before windows detects everything to be in perfect working order. Even the troubleshooter find's no problem.

Hi,

I'm experiencing a weird issue with my laptop. I'm running windows 7 on it and everything is working fine, but when I plug in the ethernet cable my computer will not connect to the internet. I tried updating the driver for the ethernet port (not the wireless), I tried disabling and enabling the ethernet connection through the control panel, and nothing. I also tried plugging in the ethernet cable and disabling the wireless option on my laptop too, and that just left me without any connection at all.

On my other laptop I plug in the same ethernet cable and the port lights up and the network icon changes to the wired one. On this one it's like the port is dead.

Please advise, and thank you for your time!
