Q: Solved: Belkin HI Speed Wifi G router: Always needs manual DNS change

Hi ,
I've been having this problem with my Belkin router since day 1 when i got it.( not new, got from buddy's place)
It's Belkin HI Speed Wifi G router, and what's really frustrating is, everytime i connect to it, I need to manually change the DNS address and switch between 4.2.2.2 & 4.2.2.4 in order to get internet access!
Sometimes it even cuts off the internet during a session, without me even disconnecting from the wifi network, where I would again need to switch back and forth to the 2 or 4 ending! It s been months and found no solution ! .. can someone drop me some hints please .. would highly appreciate your help ! thanks

Hi all,

My Belkin N300 wireless router is now experiencing intermittent slow Internet speed. The router is 2 years old and has worked perfectly until last week.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I completed.

Internet speed test when directly plugged into the wireless router and cable modem: 30mbps
Internet speed using laptop wifi: 2 mbps then sometimes works at normal speed
Called ISP and they verified there was a connectivity to cable modem issue. Did a power cycle for modem and router. Then got full 30mbps from cable modem to ISP using direct connect to laptop.
tested other devices such as laptops and tablets, all experiencing intermittent slow speed
when experiencing slow wifi, switched to direct connect ethernet cable to router and got immediate full 30mpbs

So far all my testing is pointing to the Belkin router's wifi connectivity. I will check on the router's firmware since it has never been updated.
I also found a thread online suggesting disabling QOS on the router. But this should not be needed as it was working fine for two years since its purchase.

Any suggestions to what else I can do to resolve this issue?

Argh!

I have a Belkin wireless router (F5D7230-4), a Buffalo Linkstation 250, and a new Dell Dimension 9100 with XP-home and plenty o' RAM. Everything mentioned is directly cabled together, with only 1 laptop sharing the wireless access.

EVERYTHING is fast--internet, processing, whatever--except transferring files to the Linkstation, which takes forever. 400 megs took 18 hours the other day (!). Furthermore, if I start to transfer a bunch of MP3s, the first 5 or 6 will FLY, but then it just grinds to a crawl. If I'm just browsing the contents of the Linkstation, the speed is fine; playing an MP3 directly from the drive works fine as well. And if I hook the Linkstation directly into my network card, it runs like greased lightning, so I assume it's a router issue.

All firmware is updated. No firewalls on. Protected mode is off. Frame bursting is on. NAT on. UPNP on.

Does anyone have ANY suggestions for me? I couldn't find any other posts that seemed to address my specific issue, and it's driving me nuts...! Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I need a help to resolve one issue with my Belkin router F7D4402 v1. I have got it recently and configured it without any issue and my internet (ADSL) was up and running. However, later I have noticed that, my internet speed is limited to 1.5 Mbps. whereas; the speed I was getting on my old Linksys WAG200 router was minimum 2.0 Mbps.

I have tried to disable the QoS and other options but no use. But when I enabled the Mac cloning it worked fine. I was getting the speed I subscribed for, but unfortunately, the other devices on my Wi-Fi stopped working. With Mac clone enable, the internet is only available to my PC.

I need the internet on my PC plus all the Wi-Fi devices in my house and along with it my full internet speed, not just 1.5 Mbps.

Can anyone please help to fix the issue?

Thank a lot.

A:Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless-G Router WHAT IS ITS MAX INTERNET CONNECTION SPEED

There THe belkin modem/gateway shouldnt limit your speed capabilities. You should be able to find the speed listed inside the modem's status page. To do this..
Click start>run>In run type CMD
In the black window type IPCONFIG and then enter. Note down your default gateway.
Open a browser window and enter the gateway's address into it. Click go
This should take you to your gateways graphical user interface.
Look for a status tab or see if it lists connection speeds on the general page.

Also you can test speeds at different sites. Google search broadband speed test and choose 1 of the millions of sites

USUALLY, you wire the system to the router first and configure the router
to access your ISP. Typically, you use your bowser to access 192.168.0.1 and log-in to the device.
Once that is working, you enable the wireless feature, set the SSID and your security keys.
Now your ready to configure the desktop to use the wireless.

Hello,

I couldn't find a solution to a big problem I have with this setup:

1st router in my chain is a Thomson from my provider (WiFi is usually off, I only use it because the provider doesn't give me the config data to connect directly without using their router)

2nd router is a TP-Link.

So, when I connect my laptop to the TP-Link via WiFi and use bluetooth headphones watching YT the video will halt several times.
When I connect to the Thomson's WiFi the video runs smoothly and the red bar keeps proceeding to the right much quicker than the realtime video.
I tried this at my office, too. Same problem. The 2nd router in the chain works perfectly when using WiFi as long as you don't use BT with it.
I really don't understand that!

Someone knows this problem?

Help?
K.R.
 

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 guys - hoping some of you can help me with the problem im having - ive tried to search the internet for a solution and tried loads of things but to no avail.

I have a Vista laptop and im trying to setup a Wireless router in my flat. I have a Belkin F5D763-4 router.

My parents have the same router set up in their house and I can access that fine with my computer wirelessly.

I am currently running a Tiscali wired connection for the internet which runs fine.

I go through all the setup options on the Belkin instructions but when I try to connect to the router it gives a message saying connected with limited connectivity. From looking around the internet this seems to be a common problem.

I dont know if this is relevant but when i tried to set up the router via the network car and cable on my PC it would not connect to the router unless i had the wired modem connected through USB and an inernet connection established.

Any thoughts much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

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 am trying to connect my Nook to my wireless network. When I originally set the network up, I wrote down EVERYTHING: router password, network name, network security key, security type, IP address, network name & network passphrase.

The original set up was with a now unused laptop; I have since successfully connected a desktop wirelessly to the network but the Nook keeps telling me I'm entering the wrong wireless password.

I can access the router page through the IP address using the info I said I have above and have not been able to figure out the password. From what I can tell, there's no way to recover my encrypted password and I need to do a factory reset to my router and set it up from scratch again. (If I'm wrong on that, PLEASE someone let me know!)

I guess my question is ultimately this: if I have to do a master reset to my router, do I have to use a cable to connect it to my PC when I'm setting it back up? The computer is on a different floor than the router and I don't think there's a cable long enough (that I can afford!) to connect them.

Sorry, it's Windows Vista 64 bit and a Linksys wireless router WRT54G2.

I was using Vista and decided an upgrade to windows 7 with a fresh install might be all it would take to fix. Nope.

When I use it in my laptop, it connects fine first time every time.

I have tried a second Wifi adapter which worked fine, but its not mine to use so isn't a solution.

Tried the drivers on the cd, and downloaded the latest drivers.

My router is a bt home hub 3.0

I have a Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO router model F5D9230-4. I am not using the wireless part.

Went away for the weekend and unplugged everything. Came home and plugged everything back in exactly like it was. (It was all working fine before I unplugged). The router now gives me a date of January 1, 1970 in the system settings and it will not connect to the internet. This happened once before and it started working again after a power surge from a thunderstorm. Electricity went off and came back on. I have tried unplugging from the wall, resetting, restoring factory settings, you name it-- I have done it.

How can I get this date changed so that I can share the connection with another computer in the house. I can connect to the internet fine if I directly connect to my modem. The router is what is holding me up.

Please help. Belkin's website is useless.
 

A:Solved: Belkin router has Jan 1970 date

January 1, 1970 is the base date of any modern computer system. See (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_Time). It will fix the date automatically when your internet connection is up and it can connect to a Network Time server.

Who is your ISP?
What is the make and model of your modem?
Into what port is the modem plugged on the router?

I am unable to connect to the internet through my belkin wireless router.

We recently switched from ATT to Comcast in our house so we needed a new router since 2wire won't work with the Comcast modem. So we installed the router - no problems. Its been working great for about 3 weeks now, but yesterday when I tried to get on, it said the router had "no internet access" and I haven't been able to get it to work since.

I have restarted the router, the modem, and my computer several times and reset the router to factory settings to no avail. I thought it might be a problem with comcast (maybe the storms knocked something out) but the modem is working fine; TV and phones still work and all of the lights on the modem box (power, DS, US, Online, ect.) are still on. I called comcast and they said they have registered no issues in the area.

Right now I'm connected to the internet through the modem. I have absolutely no idea what the issue is. I've tried everything I can think of so I'm hoping somebody can help me out. Hopefully I don't need to buy a new router.

Here's everything I can think of that might help solve this:

-Router: Belkin N750 db Wireless N+ Router, Model: F9K1103V1

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
 

A:Solved: Belkin Router Power Adapter

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.

I just bought a Belkin F5D-9630-4 ADSL Wireless Router, followed the installation guide but it doesn't work!
The front of the router shows a red light on the Internet LED. The user guide says this means the router could not obtain an IP address. I followed the Belkin advice given on the Troubleshooting section of their website but it hasn't helped.
Short of ringing up my ISP (which is Bulldog) is there anything else I can do to solve this?

My PC and my wife's PC connect to the internet via a Belkin Wireless Router. It's been fine for 3 months, but twice in the past two days it has thrown us offline, and the green Data light went out. BT Yahoo! Helpdesk suggested unplugging it for 5 seconds, then reconnecting the power. This worked! But it only lasted a day. The next day, same things happens. So we unplug it and reconnect it after 5 seconds, and it's fine. Anyone know what's happening here? Should I demand a replacement? Should I disconnect the thing every time I close down the PC? Thanks!

Hey Guys,

I have had a search around and cant seem to find a post with the same problem as this so im hoping someone out there can give me a hand

My friend has a Belkin G wireless router f5d7234-4H v5, he has recently been reconnected to the internet after being cutoff a couple of months ago. Now that his internet is back the router seems to be blocking access, the internet works fine when connected directly to the modem but the router is showing a red light under 'internet'. The 'modem','wired' and 'router' lights are all green and there is no light at all under wireless.

I have tried the following steps -

Resetting router to factory default settings
Fully rebooting all hardware and switching on in correct order etc.
Updating firmware for the router and drivers for the network adapter in PC

I have tried running the setup CD again but it says that it cant connect to any network adapters in this computer - even though it works fine connected directly to the internet!

It seems strange that it would suddenly decide to stop working, since no changes to the settings had been made in the period of downtime. It seems like it should be a simple ting to fix, hope someone out there knows how

thanks

dan

On a seemingly endless XP Vista home networking file sharing mission. Had a Dell E510 desktop connected to the internet by a cat5e cell tower 900 mhz antenna modem. that all worked well. Bought a new Lenovo T61 laptop and Belkin N1 router. Setup the Dell XP direct wire to the Belkin and the Vista Laptop wireless to the Belkin. Both connect good to the internet. Downloaded the XP patch to allow the XP to show up on the Vista network map. That worked. Tried just about everything imaginable to allow file sharing from dozens of sources from microsoft to sites like this with no success. Hired a network guy who spent 4 hours pinging and checking and repinging and finally accepted defeat and luckily only charged me $55 instead of $55/hour. Tried sharing both c drives as in the post on this site with no success http://forums.techguy.org/networking...nter-file.html . tried shutting down the explorer browser on the xp to prevent
'browser conflicts". tried shutting down all firewalls (windows on each and mcafee on the Dell, Lenovo has bitdefender antivirus only). Interestingly, a few times the Dell computer has shown up on Network locations but it doesn't allow an access. The Lenovo has never shown up on the Dell or any shared files either. The network technician said lots of people were having the same issues and many downgrading to XP. I have literally invested >50 hours into this and am wondering what to look at next. I love the idea of sharing and modifying files ... Read more
