Can't reach Belkin configuration this a problem???

Q: Can't reach Belkin configuration this a problem???

We have 2 wired pc, and a laptop. The PCs are Acer3100+, 1.8ghz, 1G ram, connected via ethernet to a wildblue modem. I have just installed a Belkin wireless router, model F5D 6231-4, that I bought on ebay. Both pcs will go online, a little slower than before, but my big concern is that when I run a cmd, ipconfig/all, my IP address dosen't match what they say. Belkin says it should be 192.168.1, and I get, in this range. They said to configure router, but when I enter that page address, I get the notice of a network error. I don't know enough about this to know if this is a security issue or not! If I manually enter the numbers that Belkin should be , I get the correct address in an ipconfig, but I cannot get to the page, or get online. What have I done wrong!!!!

A: Can't reach Belkin configuration this a problem???

the Belkin default address is

you're apparently wired like

the WAN side address will be set by your ISP, not belkin and might well be, but none of your PCs will see this using IPCONFIG /ALL --
they will see the LAN side addresses. IPCONFIG will show the DHCP address
given to that specific machine. the LAN side address of the belkin should be
the default above, and thus your PC addresses will default to something like

use one PC to access the router config using your browser
IF NECESSARY, you can change the default router address and the range of IP
addresses that will be assigned to your PCs.

you should absolutely change the admin password

my internet connection uses PPPoE to connect to the internet. i'm trying to set up the router for this configuration but it does not work. if there is anything else i need to post up pls tell!!

A:Configuration problem for belkin adsl2+ modem with wireless router

the MODEM uses PPPoE, the router should not. the ADSL modem will hold the connection
regardless of anything being active on your router or systems, so imo, the router
should not be configured for PPPoE.

Hello all,

I have a Belkin N150 Enhanced Wireless Router, my internet is dynamic cable modem, and I have two computers; one running XP and the other Windows 7.

On initial plug in, it was working. It was plugged motorola cable modem/belkin/windows 7 comp. I did the IPCONFIG, I ran the Setup Assistant, and I guess I entered the wrong information because the internet stopped working. So I had another go at it, and still wouldn't work. Third time, Setup Assistant tells me that it cannot detect the connection between the computer and router. It tells me to make sure everything is plugged. I haven't touched a bloody thing. All lights are green on router.

I tried to access the settings through and other consecutive numbers, to see if I can reset to factory settings. My browser tells me I got nothing! I've tried on Chrome, IE, and Firefox. I've done the hard reset, lights go off and then back on green - one by one. Nothing.

I've googled the crap out of this issue (and browsed through this forum), and I'm almost down to return it. I have contacted Belkin through their tech support email, and haven't heard a response.

I connected it to my XP comp (which is not connected to the internet, because at this point my concern is accessing the router settings) and IPCONFIG says;

Connection specific suffix ; Belkin

1. I cannot find a solution for a problem accessing Microsoft forums websites from Windows 10 - IE11 and Edge browsers:
in EDGE - Hmm, we can't reach this page.   IE11 this page can't be displayed.
For about a year it worked at least from Edge. Now both cannot access Microsoft forums. All the other sites are accessible.
I am using a corporate proxy. The same sites are accessible from Windows 7 with IE11.
First I blamed our IE GPO with multiple settings. So for a test I placed my machine in Blocked OU (no IE GPO, proxy is set from different GPO).
Everything what I tried didn't help. The question: why just Microsoft forums (no other sites) are not accessible.
Did couple of tests from Windows 7 IE11 machines. The same Microsoft forums are perfectly accessible (all GPOs are applied).
Suddenly, found that one corporate Web App does the same : "This  page can't be displayed". On other Windows 7 it does work.
I am out of ideas now... cannot blame anymore our GPO or proxy...
Any advice?

This post is in regards to a website that I'm attempting to access. Within the email there is a highlighted link "Store" where I access a link to purchase my photos.. Clicking on this link Message reads Cannot reach this page, Refresh or Search. Clicking on Refresh nothing happens, click on Search brings up all the connecting websites but each one I try to open they all show the same. Cannot reach this page. This website is the only one that shows that. All others such as My Bank , Kaiser etc all open without incident. I do not understand this .I tried everything I even sent an email to this company about this issue The email could not be sent either , Up until today I have had no problems with this company/website.

This is not a security or firewall problem, as the problem is present even when antivirus and firewall are turned off. As the site is accessible from another site, it does not appear to be a security problem. I can access the secure bank sites.

I have had this issue so much more often the past week with Edge than my entire time using Windows 10. Is anyone else seeing a increase in this? I cant tell if its a wifi problem (all my other devices using wifi are fine) or a problem caused by a recent update or what, but its so aggravating.

Before I go into any further details, I'm going to describe the current setup.

Connected via ADSL, I have a BT HomeHub. This is the networks DHCP server with both wired and wireless connections. It came with static IP addresses/masks of: (assuming that's for WAN) (this is for the telephone handsets it also manages) (for the LAN/WLAN connections.)

It serves two pools of DHCP addresses: - (handsets) - (LAN/WLAN)

Wireless encrytion in use is WPA2. A laptop, server and Wii console all connect to this via WLAN, with the router being configured to use specific addresses for each device. These all work perfectly.

Unfortunately, the Nintendo DS Lite handheld is not compatible with WPA based encrytion. So after mulling over spening money on the PC connector to let it hop on the connection, I decided to add a WEP access point to the network instead as I already had the hardware lying around. When I'm not using the DS online, I can just switch off this extra AP without disrupting the rest of the network.

This AP is a "Belkin Wireless G Access Point F5D7130". It is configured with a static IP address of, and is connectd directly to the HomeHub via cable. The HomeHub recognises its presence and static addressing.

Immediately afterwards I lost internet connection as I expected but now can't connect to the config page @ . I tried running the setup software again and it can't communicate with the router, either. Tried hitting the reset button several times, disconnecting the router, etc. but the config page still won't load. Is there anyway to manually revert the router back to factory settings?

Go to My Network Places, and on the left theres a thing that says "show all UPnP devices" or similar. Click on it, then go to your LAN settings and set your IP address to auto, or vice versa. Plug in/turn your router back on and it should come up as a network place. From that doubleclick it and enter admin etc..

Hi, I am trying to set up a LAN with a Belkin router (F5D7230) where you are directed to a landing web page upon joining the network. The landing page will be a locally served page from a PC on the LAN. From looking at the config options in the control panel for the Belkin, I'm not sure how to set this up. I can access the web page I want to serve by typing in the IP address of the host machine (which is running Apache), but I need to specify somewhere in the Belkin config that this IP should be where people joining the network are directed to. Is this straightforward? Or do I need additional software? If I can't easily do what I've mentioned, the other option would be to set up a simple alias, e.g typing http://site would translate to the IP and page of the web page.

Thanks for any pointers.

Please post your OS and ipconfig /all results here for the computer that works and the one that doesn't. You can easily do this by:

If winxp, 2k or NT:
1. Go to a command prompt and type: ipconfig /all > ipconfig.txt
2. open ipconfig.txt (with notepad) and copy all then paste to a reply to this message.
3. repeat for each system.

If you are using win98 or, gasp, win95 then the command is winipcfg and you will have to copy down that info and type into a reply.

Hello everyone.
I am currently experiencing an error everytime I use my Microsoft Edge. Whenever I try to go to a site, I always end up with this error. The weird thing is, this issue only happens on certain websites (such as Facebook and Yahoo currently) and sometimes with Google. It likes to disconnect me often and I really don't want to have to deal with this issue anymore.

My internet works fine as my laptop (which I'm currently on) and phone can connect to it without issue. I don't know why it doesn't work on my desktop especially since its internet is Ethernet.

I tested this on other browsers to see if it was only on Edge but it turns out that chrome and firefox experience the same issue with different sites as well. For all three, I haven't been able to go on Facebook and Yahoo, and sometimes Google.

I know the problem is from my end because clearly, the sites are up. Is there any way to solve this or has anyone else found a solution to this?

Hi. Welcome to TSF.

You mentioned threats were found by Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. Were they actually malware or just PUPs? A broken Internet connection is one of the common after-effects of a malware infection, and post-infection repairs need to be done, assuming all of the infections have been cleared. I advice seeking a clean bill of health from the virus removal section, and after they declare your system free from infections, come back here and we will advice further if the problem isn't cured.

try resetting your router using that button at the back that needs a paperclip thing. It will restore factory defaults with no passwords or anything. My guess is that you've enabled some sort of filtering and forgot to add your laptop to it (happened to me)

Hello there! I have a question for the experts that I haven't been able to quite figure out myself. I apologize beforehand if this has already been answered--I searched, but didn't find any satisfactory threads regarding my issue.

I'm currently running Windows XP on a computer with a number of hard drives. Basically, the two main hard drives I'm working with are a SATA II (3.0 GB/s) 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD and a SATA I 150 GB 7200 RPM HDD. My question is, where are the best places to put the operating system, page file, and commonly-used programs so that I can optimize efficiency? I've heard that it's best to split the page file and operating system so they are on different physical drives if possible, but which should go on which, and should the programs be on the same physical drive as the page file (in a separate partition) or with the operating system?

Also, I'm thinking about dual-booting with Windows Vista. If I do this, should I match the configuration so that both operating systems are on the same physical drive, both page files are on the same physical drive, etc?

Any input on this matter is greatly appreciated!

F8 gives you safe mode option...Last known good configuration will pop up if windows isn't booting up, so if it is, its already a good configuration. Try the system restore utility instead (start->all programs->accessories->system tools->system restore), and for normal don't need to do anything :)

On my PC I use IE6, Opera & Firefox and, in none of them, can I reach affiliate links, that is when a site links to something I may want to purchase.

I also have affiliate links on my own Website at - if you go there, please click on one of the 3 main ways of entering the site (you can't miss 'em!) and you should see a vertical banner which links to iPowerWeb (excellent Web hosting company, by the way), which is further down in the light blue left-hand links sidebar.

I can't see that banner, in any of my browsers! Yet I can see it on my laptop. Both computers are running the XP Firewall, so it's not that, and it can't be IE6 because I've configured the security identically on both machines.

I seem to have something enabled or disabled somewhere. It could well be in McAfee Antivirus, which I run on the PC only. But, as is usual with antivirus software - always has been! - the interface is ghastly to use, and I can't even find how to configure the darn thing.

Any McAfee experts here? (If it IS that...).

Thanks in advance,

AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (1.83 GHz)

Hi, Earlier when i was on my routers setup page checking a setting I kept getting an error message only when trying to log off "duplicate administrator this device is managed by currently". This kind of bothered me cause I hadn't logged on to the router page from any other computer and had just reset the router. After that I checked to see if remote administration had been enabled somehow and it was disabled. I also have a strong password and the security log showed no login attempts other than my own.
Sorry if this seems like a stupid or pointless question but I'm just really curious as to what could cause this.

At home I have a network of 4 PC's, connected through a Belkin F5D5130. everything was working fine with no problems at all.

A few days ago I decided to get myself a new computer consisting of an Asus A7N8X motherboard, athlon 2600XP 333 FSB, memory and all the rest of it.

now a strange thing has occoured since I installed the new computer.

Every now and again the router will reset itself. all the lights will go on, then turn off, and then come back on again and start working again. Of course doing this causes an interruption with whatever i may be doing at the time.

If i take this computer off of the network, ithe router works fine. So I can only surmise that there is a problem between the computer and the router

Does anyoe have any ideas as to what may be wrong?.

Hi there

I have a Belkin F7D2401 wireless router with built in modem. This has worked fine for a year since purchase. The router has a wired connection to my desktop (running Vista and IE), and was supporting a couple of Blackberry smartphones, a Blackberry playbook and a Kindle. At some point last week, all these devices lost their wifi connectivity. Yesterday, I noticed the WPS light was blinking amber at regular points.

Although I've next to no technical knowledge, I've reset the router using the button at the back but this hasn't solved the problem.

Can anyone help me understand what's going wrong, and more importantly how to fix the connectivity on our devices ?

A:Problem with Belkin Router

sounds like the router is faulty

try powering off and leaving off for 15 minutes and see if that works again

you could then try logging into the configuration pages and disable the WPS facility and just setup the devices manually ,
connect to the wireless and enter the security key

see the user manual here,d.d2k

The WPS light (small light above WPS button) will blink green while it listens for your Wi-Fi device. Once a connection is established, the light will turn green and then go out. If a connection is not established, the light will blink amber. You may repeat the process to try again.Click to expand...

Hi, we have a belkin f5d7230-4 router in our house which has been working for a week, but now its being an enormous problem.
We find only one of us seems to be able to connect at a time, and it only ever seems to be an XP computer that connects.
The setup we have is three wirless laptops and a desktop connected by an ethernet cable.
My laptop, XP, goes through a few different situations:

It connects to the router but doesn't have any internet connection (whilst only the other XP desktop does)
It sees the network but wont connect regardless of the WPA key
The successfuly situation where i get internet, but everyone else doesn't
The Vista laptops come up with an error relating to DNS problems, also on the diagnosis pages they highlight errors between the router and internet rather than the computer and the router, even though a computer in the house is usually connected.
My guess is that its unlikely to be the cable internet that comes into the house since one is successfully connecting, and its unlikely to be all of the computers simultaneously.
Thanks in advance for an responses!

Do a hard reset on router (straightened paperclip in the little hole for 30 seconds, with the power on).

Reconfigure the router. Make sure everyone has DHCP enabled (obtaining IP address and DNS automatically).

If it still doesn't work, you may have to get another router.

I have an issue with my router as far as connecting to friends over xbox live. My NAT is currently set to Open when I test connection, but I cannot connect to half my friends list. My connection is wired and also uses a generic arris modem which was provided by comcast.

1. I have port forwarded UDP 88, 3074 UDP and TCP, 53 UDP and TCP, 80 TCP
2. I have DMZ'd my xbox
3. I restarted/reset all hardware to default before doing the above
4. I have attempted to assign manual IP configuration to the xbox 360 without success
5. I have disabled all firewalls

I do not have a double NAT as my modem cannot be configured in anyway and is a generic pass-through device.

This is really bothering me as I cannot join up with many Moderate and Open NAT friends. My NAT being set to open should be able to connect to anyone who is set to moderate or Open NAT. The NAT is acting as if it is Strict even when it displays open.

Firstly, the equipment:
1x belkin wireless router
3x belkin wireless dongles

So, my brothers Dell pc had been using one of the dongles for a year or so, as had my mum. They had worked fine, until he broke his. After that, he borrowed hers whenever it wasn't being used for work.
Recently, he was bought a new dongle. Same make and all that, but a slightly newer revision (And a different set of drivers to download from the belkin website). Obviously, plugging it in where the old dongle had been didn't work, so I uninstalled the old drivers, and installed from the CD that was supplied. Get the wireless zero config(WZC) back in charge, and look for the router. I see it and connect to it (Note: No direct router securite like WEP, only mac filtering, which works. The new dongle has been added to the mac list). It stays on 'connecting to network, the led doesn't flash. It just stays there forever.

However, after a couple of tries like this, my dad removed the dongle and put it back in the same slot while it was connecting, then it started flashing, and it got as far as 'Acquiring network address' before stopping. It wasn't sending or recieving packets, but it was still flashing.
Then it suddenly started recieving lots of packets, and it all worked. Internet sites loaded, but it was still not sending any packets, apparently.

So, restarted the PC, and it wouldn't speak to the router. Unplugged it and stuck it back in, and it connected to the router, but this time its stuck... Read more

First time user so be gentle!

I've been using a Belkin router for a couple of years, No problems.

I have also got a Netgear router that was sent to me by my provider, Orange.

Whilst using the Belkin as normal, it for no reason stopped allowing me to access certain sites. i.e Eaby and Facebook. but other sites are fine.

After calling Orange ( again...always have issues) and installing the router they supplied, it works and those sites can be accessed.

however, that router has a range which reaches just past my arm! useless. and I can only get a very weak signal in parts of the house.

So,.. The Belkin is being selective on what it wants to access. would it be needing a software update? Have Ebay and facebook done something to their sites? and why would the router not work on some sites but would on others.

I really don't want to buy another router. Any help appreciated.



A:Belkin Router problem

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the Belkin; then reset it to factory defaults and reconfigure.

If that doesn't get it working then try using the Netgear as your router and the Belkin as a wireless access point and ethernet switch. You can also turn off the Netgear's wireless.

Your Belkin probably has an AP Mode; if it does that should work. If that mode does not exist or doesn't work the way I think it does here is a general procedure for any router.

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 through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, 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.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum

I just bought a belkin surf n300 2 weeks ago. In the first few days, it works fine. But then it starts to disconnect without a cause frequently. During the night, the day, the morning, evening, just random times. So I got into the router settings and set up wpa2, updated my firmware (yes, from the belkin site itself and yes I updated AFTER downloading the firmware), set my self healing stuff at 3.30 am everyday. Then I thought its gonna stop but after only 6 hours of happiness, it starts again. So I restored to the factory defaults, set up my info again and using PPPOE connection type (My house have multiple wireless users). All of the users got Windows 7 installed. It slows down a lot when I patch my online games and download windows update. The router is connected in the same filter as the home phone.

Things that occur when my internet disconnects
-The router's light is red (Happens 1/10 times)
-The belkin manager program said the password has been changed (8/10 times)
-The wireless icon got a yellow triangle with a ! in it (7/10 times)

Note: -No coffee machine working when it disconnects. xD
-Phone is not used when disconnection happens.


A:Belkin Router Problem

Sounds defective. Updating to the latest firmware and then reset to factory default settings is proper, and pretty much all that can be done.

Which router light is red?

A few ISP's require that the device connected to the modem be registered with them. With most of those a new device--e.g., your new router--would not get a connection, but with a few it will get a connection but then when the ISP makes a "sweep" to check for attached devices you would get disconnected. Make sure this is not your situation before believing my claim that the router is defective.

Hi all,

I have a feeling this may not be a new problem so hopefully someone will have a quick-and-easy solution. I hope so because I am close to throwing my nice new Sony Vaio out the window ...

Until very recently buying the new laptop I had been running Windows XP. There had been a problem with the old machine and the Belkin wireless router (model no. FSD7633-4) accessing certain websites such as Hotmail and receiving email with MS Outlook. This problem was solved by downloading DrTCP and resetting the MTU level to 1400.

(Incidentally, if any of the foregoing suggests that I know what I am talking about - please accept my assurances that I don't. I am a computer ignoramus.)

The new Sony Vaio has Vista pre-installed. Although I have a seemingly normal interconnect connection and can access the majority of websites there are some such as, again, Hotmail which I cannot access. And I cannot receive email via Outlook. From what I have read, the DrTCP program does not seem to work with Vista although I have tried this.

Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance and if you need more info just let me know.

Hiya guys...

I'm starting the new year with a new tech problem. Ugh. I hope everyone had a great holiday and I wish them well. Hope the new year was good as well. In any event here is the question.

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ645 laptop. I use Windows XP. I love it. I bought the Belkin Hub-to-Go in order to manage all of my usb needs (in which I have a great deal). The Hub-to-Go worked great with my desktop at home which was a 3-5 year old Dell. I just hooked it up and it was ready to go. I attempted to this on my laptop and nothing. It at first recognized there was a new hardware but it couldn't find a driver for it. I also looked on the Belkin site for a driver for the hub-to-go and nothing.

I called the Belkin company and they said since it worked on your desktop the problem is not the Belkin. The problem lays with the fact I need to install a "generic USB drive." They told me to call microsoft but microsoft is charging like $40 for a service call. In any event, the Belkin does turn on when plugged in. And as I said the computer at times recognizes just can't find the driver and turns up flat.
Any help would be great.

I purchased a Belkin Nostromo n50 game pad for my Dell Inspiron 8100(Win XP Home) several months ago. Unfortunately I've not been successful in getting it to function properly.
The Nostromo software will not consistently load game profiles and when it does it either locks up the PC immediately or when the game is started the game crashes. (And the games run fine when the gamepad is not used.)
I've uninstalled the thing a number of times and reinstalled it - with the same results. I've downloaded the latest version of the software and driver from Belkin - with the same results.

Is there anyone out there that has gotten one of these things to work with WinXP and if so how?

I was used to this in the room with a bad signal but the software im using shows a good to very good signal with good speed. The use of just browsing the internet doesnt seem too affected but when i try to play a game that ran fine with the old setup I get bad packet loss and a pretty unstable ping. Tried changing the channel being used as netstumbler showed a different network using the same, but the signal then just seemed to get worse (just changed from the router setting, couldnt find it within the network card advanced options). Dont want to fiddle with any of the settings within the router options as i dont really understand them any advice or further questions welcome thanks.

Basically i am trying to encypt my belkin wireless adaptor and am having a few problems. On my main computer I have an orange Livebox (router) which my second computer using the belkin adaptor connects to. The orange livebox is encrytped fine. I only found out today by pure chance that my belkin adaptor is not encrypted. I have just purchased a laptop and connected to the belkin adaptor without even doing anything!!

I have tried to work out how to add an encrytpion but its really complicated with me being such a novice of wireless networks. I have had a look at the Belkin user manual and to be honest its not much help. Its probably something really simple but for the life of me i can't figure it out!!

A:Belkin adaptor encryption problem

Depending on the os you are running on the laptop, running wpa/tkip security would probably be best as wep is insecure. How are your routers configured? Does one provide connection to the other? I would also disable ssid in the wireless router, and set a mac filter in the wifi router only allowing my laptop's mac. You might want to read up on how all these settings are made, here is a page on wpa/tkip to get you started:

I have got myself a belkin router and connected it to my main desktop pc. I bascially want to make a wireless connection between my pc and laptop. I got given a belkin network card too which if I put into my usb drive allows me to connect to the net. I can put the card into both my laptop or desktop and can connect to the net except I cant seem to do it when I only have it in one.

I am looking over the manual for the router and in the part configure your router it says
- In order for your computer to properly communicate with the router, your computer's network ''TCP/IP/Ethernet'' setting needs to be Obtain an Ip adress automatically using DHCP''- How to do I set it and where??

Then it goes onto say you can access the web based management interface of the router using internet browser on a computer physicsally connected to the route. Tpe into your adress bar and click enter. I did it in aol and it takes me to some search site.

Can I actually connect the desktop and laptop without the belkin card and just via the router and also how the hell do i do it lol?

A:Belkin wireless network problem

1. connect the router to your pc via cable first.
2. Make sure the tcp/ip settings in the network connection you use is setup to 'obtain automatically' for ip address and dns.
2. In a browser window, type in the ip address of the router home page; It should take you to the Belkin Router config page.
3. Setup the router for DHCP. Some Belkin's take abut 35 secs to accept and reset the router after each change (for some strange reason!)
4. Setup up wireless networking, MAKE SURE you enable the security on it.

I got given a belkin network card too which if I put into my usb drive allows me to connect to the net. I can put the card into both my laptop or desktop and can connect to the net except I cant seem to do it when I only have it in one.Click to expand...

I got a little confused here. Is the wireless card you have a usb plugin? Which can obviously fit into a usb port on either pc or laptop?
Well, with only one wireless card, you can obviously only have one wirelessly connecting to the network/internet can't you?
The router will most likely have 4 RJ45 ports in the back, so you can plug the pc and laptop into them with cat5e straightthrough cables.
From then its just a matter of sharing resources on the pc and laptop between each other.

Hope this helps.

Hey guys, got me a new Modem not long ago and recently plugged it in, seemed to be working fine at first but every now and then something happens and it seems to disconnect. It says its still connected and everything and going into status it says it's connected fine, it seems to just stop for a while then comes back on after awhile. Unplugging and Rebooting it does nothing.

I know its the Modem because I had a different modem plugged in before and it was fine. It is a Belkin f5d5730au and is connected to a CNet CNAP-711 11mbps Wireless Router. Also, when another computer is turned on, it doesn't seem to allow it to connect for a small while then works.

Any ideas? Thanks.

A:Belkin f5d5730au Connection problem

I suspect you will benefit from a close read of all the documentation of your cable modem, and wireless router... and possibly with a talk with your IP provider tech support.
Are all of your old connections deleted in the device manager, registry, and the network connections in the control panel.
Belkins are sometimes weird devices... units with the same part number don't even look the same sometimes. Belkin doesn't really make anything. They pay to have their components made by others, to specifications they set.
If there is a problem, I would change out the Belkin for a standard unit by 2Wire, LinkSys, D-Link, Netgear, Siemens, or preferably Cisco.

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago I bought a Belkin Wireless G router with a Belkin USB Network Adapter for my daughters com. I have the router up and running ok on my com, but I cant seem to find the installation disc that came with the network adapter that I plan to add to my daughters com.

My question is, can I still install this adapter without the installation disc? I found the driver page for it, but nothing else (see below).

Ill be using it on a com with Windows/ME installed and the model# of the Belkin Adapter is F5D7050

I recently installed a Belkin F5D9630uk4A ADSL2 + Wireless router to replace my AOL supplied DSL modem. I have a desktop and laptop connected.

The problem: Using the router I cannot get access to certain sites via IE (although I can if I login to AOL) BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY i cannot get windows or mcafee updates.
If I disconnect the router and put the DSL modem back in, without changing any othr settings I can again get access thru IE and get the updates. The problem is the same on both my pc's. I have tried turning off my firewall(mcafee) and firewall on the router. I have tried adding the microsoft websites to trusted sites. When I try to browse I get message "Website found waiting for reply". Trying to get windows updates manually I get
0x80072EEC, but the suggested fixes dont work. The problem is the same with either wireless or ethernet cables.

Is my router blocking some ncessary access back to my pc's? If so where is the problem and what should I do about it?

Thanking you in advance.

I have a Belkin wireless router that fails to connect to the internet which is the final step in the installation process. All the connections are correct. It will try to connect to the internet up to ten times but still there is no connection. I even tried installing it on my wife's laptop but still the same problem. I already checked all the cables and they all work correctly.

My computer can detect the wireless connection, connect to it, and even access the control panel through but the green light (on the router, which refers to Internet) doesn't blink at all. I tried connecting the cable modem directly to my PC and it works perfectly.

Can you help me?

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?

A:Belkin Wireless Router N+ Set Up Problem

Answer Match 42%

Evening all,

I had to do a restore of my system after a problem, and I'm now having problems accessing my net router.

The router itself seems to be all set up correctly, it's one that is used with cable connections, and in the interface it shows as having an internet connection, and when the laptop is wired into the router I can access the net but wirelessly I can't.

I've set the router up to use a 128 bit wep key for protection, but when I go into the network bit where you can see the available networks, when I click on mine it doesn't ask for the WEP key. Instead it asks for a username, password and domain.

I did try to connect to it earlier but couldn't remember the wep key so I had to reset the router, so is there a chance that the laptop is still trying to connect to the old settings? How do I go about searching for new networks as I can't see an option as I'm hoping if I can delete it and then find it again I should then be able to log on.

The laptop has built in wireless which I'm using, along with the vista network software for connecting to networks.

hey everyone,

I'm not very knowledgeable in the field of networking, so bear with me. I have a home wireless network set up with a NetComm NB5Plus4 modem router, a Belkin 54g wireless access point and several NetComm NP285 wireless 'homeplugs'. (you plug them into a power socket and one into the router and the others into the back of whatever you want to use wireless on.)

A while back I tried to connect the Homeplug from our PC into my xbox to access xbox live. however, I couldn't get it to work, and after following the instructions on and power cycling the router and 54g returned it to the PC. however, when I plugged it back in, the PC said that it had limited or no connectivity. On trying to repair the connection, it could not renew the IP address. The wireless connection works perfectly on our laptop (with its own internal connection to the access point), but when I pinged the 54g's IP the PC and got nothing back except for a message reading "destination host unreachable".

I can't use any internet features at all. I'm using my laptop right now.

I have also tried the release/renew method. It couldn't connect.

any help would be MUCH appreciated as my laptop doesn't run games very well, and has some overheating problems.

thanks in advance

Edit: I pinged the 54g with the laptop and got all of the packets back.

A:Belkin 54g and NetComm Adapter problem

Unplug/plug the np285 adapters to reset them.

I assume the np285 adapters came with a utility program that repairs its connection and it surveys the homeplug network for addressable plugs. Use the utility to enumerate what plugs are still working in the network.

I really want to thank to who ever can solve this situation for me. I recently bought myself a Belkin's wireless adaptor usb. First time using a wireless router. Thanks to the router; I'm able to to get connected with my ps3, my other computer's and other web design contraptions.

When I bought the USB Adaptor for my PC, it worked fine for a couple of weeks. Until Monday afternoon, when my internet began to respond slowly and until it got cut off ( disconnected, I presume). Later on yesterday, I had to uninstall it and resintall it. The same process as my Nintendo Wifi usb ( whenever I shutdown the computer, then turned it back on; I wouldn't get connectivity.) When I finished reinstalling it, I got my internet back working.

Today, the samething happened again. During the process of uninstalling and reinstalling the software. I was unable to pick up the connection. It some how got connected to my wireless network, but it wouldn't feed the internet.

I notice also, whenever I'd install it again. The wireless USB becomes " Belkin wireless adaptor USB 4" then after the next reinstallation process, number 5 and 6. Not sure if that's disrupting anything.

The belkin usb Model is F6D4050 V1

hope that helps

Thanks in advance

A:Problem Accessing Some Sites Via Belkin

Can you check that you definitely have a connection by going to another site that you have never visited before? Sometimes it can seem like the connection is working, when actually its just getting the pages from your cache. (Although, if you posted that message from one of the PC's then you definitely have a connection).

If you are definitely connected, but you can't see some specific sites, I would struggle to help. If you don't have any software that might be interfering (pop up blockers / firewall / virus / spyware / adware / cookie blocker / any software that basically blocks a site if it doesn't like something about it), then its most likely a setting in the router. I once had that issue and someone fixed it for me, but I forgot what its called... If I remember, I'll post back.

I installed a belkin home network system about eight month's ago. The system come with the F5D7231-4 router and wireless network card F5D7001. The first card I installed was defective. I returned it and got another one and then Everything worked. I could connect to both computers. I could share printers and files. Both computers connected to the Internet with no problem.
The computer with the card was not used for about three month's. When I restarted the system it will not connect to my other computer. The computer that is connected to the router connects to the other computer just find. Both still connect to the Internet. I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and software. I did a hard reset on the router and set it up.
I ran the diagnostics on the card and it shows no errors. I updated my sis LAN drivers. As far as I know the F5D7001 drivers are up to date.The problem is still there. Nothing I have done so far has made any difference. I run XP Home on both computers. Does anybody have any idea what the problem could be?
