Assuming your router is set correctly to your modem or the password and username are set correctly in a modem/router, make sure DHCP is enabled in the router, this gives each pc an ip address automatically.

Go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure never dial a connection is ticked or greyed out. close IE

go to network connections, right click on your wireless adapter>properties>highlight TCP/IP line>properties and make sure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked.

Open up internet explorer again and click refresh a few times, it will detect the proxy server then should connect, if not then the router configuration is wrong.

Troubleshooting Internet disconnects

Are all computers connected to the router affected?
If so, try this first:

  1. Unplug the power to the cable / DSL modem
  2. Connect the power to the router.
  3. Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports of the router.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Restore the router to factory defaults. Note: This will remove all previously configured settings.
  6. Once the router has gone through the restore it will then begin the reboot. When the reboot completes plug the power back into your modem.

This addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.

This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.

If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.

In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.

Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.


Are just wireless clients affected?
If so, focus on factors that affect wireless clients, such as:

  • Network selection and security
  • Hardware access control
  • Client TCP/IP settings
  • Signal strength
  • Sources of interference


Are just wired clients affected?

If so, check your network adapter settings. Check all cable routing, connections, and power supplies.


Can you connect to the Internet directly?
Set up a computer to connect to the Internet directly, without the router.
If you cannot connect to the Internet without the router, please contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance.


Check your signal strength

You may lose your wireless connection if you go beyond the range of the router, or if there is an obstacle between your computer and the router that blocks wireless signals. You can check signal strength by opening your wireless adapter's interface.


Is your modem configured correctly?

For Windows XP and 2000:


1. Connect your computer to your modem with an Ethernet cable.

2. Click Start, and go to Run.

start_run.jpg


3. In the Run box, type CMD and click OK.

cmd.jpg


4. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.

ipconfig.jpg



For Windows Vista/7:


1. Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.

2. Click the Start button and in the Start Search box, type cmd. You can either press Enter on your keyboard or click on cmd.exe when it appears in your search list.

start_search_cmd.jpg


3. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.

vista_ipconfig.jpg


4. The IP address (or IPv4) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (for example, 192.168.2.2).



After following either of the steps above, your IP address is 192.168.xxx.xxx, then your modem is also a router and will need to be bridged by your ISP. If your IP address begins with a 169.254, your computer did not receive an IP address from your ISP.

You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on wireless settings change channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 and save so you get better signal.
Then save settings and restart router.

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.

I have a 2wire Gateway modem/router. I would like to extend the range by 75 feet to reach an outbuilding i use for an office. What can I do?


A couple of ideas come to mind, but basically 75 extra feet could be a problem. It's unlikely that you will be able to extend the range of your present router, but that's the first place to look. The antenna may have a mini-connector on it that unscrews. You can add a 5 or 9 dB antenna to the base unit and push the signal farther.

The problem you face is you might be able to see the signal, but you still can't talk back to it. There are instructions floating around the internet to convert a wireless router to a wireless bridge. A bigger antenna at the Gateway and a router wired as a bridge would get you all the signal as a point-to-point system.

Of course, an industry standard wireless access point, will have a bridge mode. Again, it might be enough to just get one of those and it will be able to communicate with your existing equipment without adding the high gain antenna.

A typical WAP with antenna is in the neighborhood of $90.

Belkin router


it is possible that the settings for your ISP is already gone or the router is not recognizing the settings.

Oh by the way who'se your ISP, is it cable or dsl internet?

For cable internet the router's internet/WAN connection type must be set to "Dynamic" for DSL internet there are some that will require you to setup your userID and password given to you by your ISP, to do this just change the connection type to PPPoE and fill out the required fileds(usually it just the userID and password from your ISP).

To access your router setup page, just open internet explorer on your computer(given that its connected wireless or wired to the router) and type http://192.168.2.1 . Type admin for the password and leave the password blank.

Belkin router


I just worked on one of these today. Try this and see if it helps.

1. Unplug your cable or DSL modem and your wireless router

2. Plug back in the cable or DSL modem and wait for the internet to successfully connect (watch the lights).

3. Plug the wireless router back in again and wait for it to connect (again, watching the lights)


If this doesn't work, make sure you have the equipment plugged-in in the right order.

cable or dsl signal goes to modem ==> modem plugs into wireless router ===> computer plugs into wireless router.
