    Unplugging the phone line from the router stopped email msgs from coming through cause of no phone service, I guess. This router is working with a laptop not the desktop computer. Does that make a difference? kb6dgr@yahoo.com

Check that the phone line is connected to the broadband filter, next to the line connection coming from the router, as he may of left the phone line out.

The router has nothing to do with phone service - it's the modem that's plugged into the phone line. Unplug the modem from the phone line. If you don't get phone service back within 30 minutes, use a different phone to report loss of phone service to the phone company. (Depending on the company, it could take up to 30 minutes for the computers to restore service after a short has been removed.)

If that's the case - that unplugging the modem clears it up, call the phone company's internet tech support number.

Here what is happen my sister law had a Belkin router that went bad she got a norther Belkin router not the same one but it a Belkin here what going on she try to hook it up and she Chang to use broadband...


The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

I wish to add my grandson's PC to my account.


your statment dosnt clearly define what you intend to do im going to guss your reffering to an account on your internet conection this is only posible if you have a broadband conection
ie dsl or cable modem
if you do the next pice of hardware you will need is a router i recomend the newer standerd witch is defined as wirless N or simply N the older tech is the g standard
the diffrence in the 2 is conectivity speed
the g standard has a max thru put of 150 Mb/s
where as the N standard has a thruput of 1
Gb/s or 1000 Mb/s
i just bought a netgear n300 to replace a failing 12 year old lynksis g standard
works great but isnt expandable past 4 pc's with out using the wirless features but i have no intention of ever having more then 4 pc's hooked up in this house so no big deal there
I paid 79$ for my N300 from bestbuy
once you have the router the rest is a matter of hooking it up and configuring it
hope this is what you ment by adding your grandsons computer to your account
if not you will have to repost and in alot more details about what your intent is
best of luck the all knowing moron

Can't get router to connect to Dell Dimension 2400 desktop


Try turning OFF DHCP from services. This may fix your problem. Look for "DHCP Client", double click on it (or right click and choose properties), STOP the service, then set it's startup type to 'manual'. That'll kill it. See DHCP is what "Gives out/assigns addresses" and on the ONLY PC, it is the First one... 192.168.0.1... Both PC's will be assigning themselves as that, and that will cause a conflict. As the Router now does the DHCP work. Of course ensure you DO have DHCP set on router.

Reset the router back to factory by using the small pinhole reset switch on the back. After that, you should just be able to plug and play.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
