Q: Solved: belkin g router problems

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 made the mistake of posting this in a solved forum, so I am making a new thread now. The solution was returning the router and getting a different one which is not an option for me.

But here is a link to the original post:
http://forums.techguy.org/networking/623333-solved-belkin-router-dmz-problems.html

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.

I have a Belkin F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router connected to my desktop running XP Pro. I connect to my router with my Toshiba Satellite M115-S1061 laptop that's running Vista Ultimate. I've had my router for about 8 months now and have had no problems with it. But about two weeks ago it started acting up. The signal is strong and the taskbar icon shows I'm connected, but it won't connect all the way to the Internet. The problems is not only with my laptop, because the connection to the Internet is also lost at the desktop. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the router, but no change. Any suggestions???

Sounds like either your ISP is having a problem, or the router and/or modem is the issue.

From the desktop connected directly to the modem, please do this.

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)

Hi guys I have just been reading up on a post that was on here a while ago regarding someone not being able to connect to Xbox Live with his new Belkin N+ router now i have a Belkin N router and have had similar problems with it either not connecting or not being able to join mates games/parties and after a lot of time with Xbox and Belkin (neither knew the problem) i found out after a lot of messing about what to do and i hope to be of services to others by posting this.

First of all you will need to be able to login to your router setup page online...the normal ip address for belkin is 192.168.2.1 sometimes this can be different and you can find out how to check your ip address on youtube...oh and each step that you do please Apply changes before moving on as the router cants update all the changes in one go

Once logged into your router there are a few things we need to do... First is to look on the left hand side of the screen and locate the "firewall" link once the page has loaded you will want to Enable the firewall.

Next you will need to turn on you xbox and go to System settings, network settings then configure network to find out what IP Adress your xbox is on...I set mine up manually so the ip address for my xbox will never change ... again can see how to do this on youtube... write down or keep a mental note of this address YOU WILL NEED THIS.

Next open the "virtual servers" which is under the firewall link this is where we are going to open... Read more

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,

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,

Dayne

** 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.

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
Thanks

When I updated to the new firmware it completely ruined the wireless connectivity of my router and as a result I had to replace the router. I also contacted belkin technical support but they could not offer a solution.

I would therefore suggest that any F5D7632-4 v2000 owners do not update their firmware as it could kill the wireless connectivity of their router. It could have just been that I was unlucky but I would strongly advise against a firmware update.Click to expand...

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a problem with my belkin router whereby the internet stops working and all internet applications like my online gaming stop working. However my wireless displays working properly.

If i use belkins network utility it displays wireless network working and internet to router displays off.

I solve the problem by going to my router page and commanding my router to restart.

Before I used the Belkin router I used the 02 router that came with my package and i got the same problem though much less frequently. This time i solved it by repairing my wireless connection [windows option].

This does not work with the belkin and I have to restart the router.

I have a wireless network set up with a Belkin F5D7130 802.11g router, Netgear network adapter and using Verison DSL.

This setup has worked more or less ok over the last month since I set it up. Yesterday, however, I could not detect my router (no SSID showed up). I've tried restarting the router and DSL modem and rebooting my computer. Nothing seems to work. However, my SSID did show up briefly and I was able to connect for about 2 minutes before it disappeared again.

I can get on to neighbor's networks which suggests that the network adapter is not the issue. Anyone have any suggestions?

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,

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.

-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.

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.

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

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.

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

A:problems connecting wireless desktop pc to belkin g router

Hi,lamborn5
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.
check out Belkin : Home
this link will also explain what maybe wrong as you may have the wrong type of hardware for your home/office

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.

The Internet on our westell modem model 6100; would cut out. It would flash on then flash off. And sometimes it would turn red. We have a asante rotuer coming off of the modem and thats how i would connect. But since i moved my computer back upstairs I am now connected threw our Belkin wireless router model F5D8230-4 v2. So the modem hasn't screwed up lately since i moved upstairs. But now our Belkin is. It will reset like atleast 15 times in one day. So thats very frustrating to deal with. But now the internet has gone very slow. I have no idea why. I "restore to default" on Belkin and Westell. And there both slow, and the Belkin is still reseting. my ISP is frontier. I am getting a new Belkin wireless router/modem in one, model F5D8236-4. I am also connected threw Ethernet and when I connect with my iPod on to the Belkin router it is slow!
So if you need anything thing to assist you in helping me just tell me.

Tomorrow (Monday) I am visiting a friend. She knows less about computers than me so sent me an email asking if I coukld sort out a couple of problems when I visit.
The one problem she identified is
She wants me to adjust the settings on her Belkin Router to secure it so it will only allow her computers access. Naturally she is concerned that her network may be used by others. She has Win XP and a Belkin Wireless Network.Any suggestions where I should begin would be great.
Thanks,

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

Mike

Hi everyone, i' new to this forum but i've looked arround and it's awsome.
I have a question that has been bothering me for quite some time now.. This is my third router and all of them have had the same problem!
When i make large downloads (over let's say 50 Mb) or when i vist sites and forums with more than 10 - 15 good quality pictures the router locks up.. the network works fine but it doesen't broadcast tha web .. so there i go.. unplug the router.. wait a while .. reconnect then i comes back to normal until i download again or view those sites again!

Router:
First: Gigabyte .. don't recall the modell but it was 54Mbs
Second : SMC barricade G
Now : belkin f5d7230-4 (with the last firmware installed)

Hope anyone can help with this... cuzi'm about to hit this router with a very heavy hammer
Thanks

Did you try using different channels?
I would also see if your router supports "Protected Mode". That fixed a similar issue for me awhile back.

I have a Belkin Router that is supposed to stand up, but it is so light weight that the Ethernet cords plugged into it pull it on its side. It seems to work okay that way, so I'm wondering if it can harm the router to leave it on its side?

Thanks

No, it shouldn't have any effect on the operation of the router.

So,

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?

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.
