Question about Belkin (F5D7231UK4) Wireless Router

Sharing a connection with wired and wireless computers

I cannot get on line on my wired computer if I hook up the way the directions tell me. I have called Belkin and they say I have it connected correctly but I have to bypass the router to make connection on my wired computer. What am I doing wrong?

I just have a question, do you have an internet connection when your computer connected to your modem(the device provided by your Internet Service Provider)? Possible that the Belkin not working is that maybe you don't have internet from ypur ISP.

I suggest you to connect your computer first to the modem, turn off the pc and afterwards the modem, after 2 minutes, turn on the modem first, when all lights stable, turn on the pc and check if you can go online. If not, better contact your ISP first for them to check the connection. If everything working fine with your ISP. Reply to this post again and provide the following information.

Your ISP?
Brand of the Modem?
Brand of the Belkin Router?
Type of Connection you have form ISP, DSL or CABLE?
If DSL, please make sure that you have a username and password from your ISP?
How many computers do you have?
What is the Windows Version your using or the Operating System?

Thanks.

Can i hook up my printer to my wireless router and if i can how do i tell it to print when i need it to print


The iP6310D can't connect to the wireless router directly. It has a USB port and an optional blue-tooth receiver.
If you connect the printer to one computer, you may be able to share it using that computer as a server. Install the printer software on all of the machines. For the software, see http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip6310d#DriversAndSoftware . For Windows 7 and 8, if you set up a Homegroup, enable sharing for the printer on the computer that it is directly connected to. Then use Add a Printer command from the Devices and Printers Control Panel option to locate networked printers. For other OS options, you'll need to make sure that the computers are in the same workgroup. (See the Network set-up information.) Then add a network printer.
If your wireless router has a USB port, you may be able to connect the printer to the router. Again install the printer software on each computer. Then use the router's software to add a printer on the computer. (For Linksys routers, that is the Cisco Connect software. Some routers may not offer this software for all OS's or for all printers.)

A similar option is a print server connected to the USB port of the printer. You will need to check the specifications for each one. There are some that only work on select printers.
Once the software (the printer driver and then the network software/shared printer is set up), then any program should be able to print following the File > Print command.
Please add a comment with your OS and/or router model, I'll try to walk you through setting up a shared printer or a USB connection on the router.

Cindy Wells
(Note: I have a USB printer connected and a wired network printer to a Cisco router. My only issue is that I get a printer error with every print job. The printers print the documents anyway. The error is due to the printers not responding to the software as fast as if it were a direct connection.)

Make sure all the computers wired and wireless are in the same workgroup.
To share files across all the computers and laptops on your network then -
All the computer and laptop in this network group must have their hard drive or folder/s set to SHARED (a hand symbol will be placed on these folders that are shared).
If there isn't a secutity problem then these folders and easy of file sharing then do not setup users and passwords on these folders.

Does it have a modem? I'm thinking you probably do not have a modem ... dial ups are generally a thing of the past. Fewer and fewer computers come with modems built in, deferring to a network (NIC) connection or wireless connection. A NIC connection looks like a telephone connection but the NIC (Network Interface Card) has 8 conductors while a modem would have only 4 or 6. Warning, NEVER plug a NIC into a telephone outlet. A NIC operates at a very low voltage ... if the phone rings while your computer is plugged in ... there will be a puff of smoke as 60 volts enter your computer ... guess what is next ...

If you have several computers and are presently taking turns plugging the computers in for a dial up ... I would suggest to you it it time for a wire or wireless network in your home. That way you can have all of your computers share your conenction ... though I will tell you in advance, your connection speed will be severly hampered due to the current speed limit of about 56,000. Cable, fIOS or DSL lines operate in the millions of bits. If you have this type connection ... you still need a modem ... just add a router to build your network, but you dont need individual computer modems.

If you are interested in building a network ... you will need a wire/wireless router and a modem. You would control the modem from a computer and you would install connection sharing from within that computer. This will allow the networked computers to share the connection you have. It similar to a client - server network in that one computer controls and then shares the conneciton with other computers. ... still it would be a peer top peer network (no computer is superior to any other computer)

Im starting to ramble ... if you are interested in a network ... research the topic and if you get stuck, post a question. There are lots of network "expert" volunteers who roam these virtual hallways.

If you are using the wireless router then you will not use the Ad-hoc mode.
You aloso don't need to share the internet on the modem.
make sure that if you conecnt the computer directly to the modem, it goes on line.
If it is on line then you can connect the modem to the router and computer to the router.
open the setup page and change the settings of the router.
once ytou setup the router then you should be able to go on line on all the computer.
You just need to connect to the network on other computers.

When using a router with your internet connection (cable, dsl modem etc.) hooked directly to the routers data port it will use the roughter's dhcp to assign ip addresses to other computer on the network. If you have your internet connection hooked directly to a computer and are using internet connect sharing then you must disable the dhcp service on the roughter because the internet connect sharing has its own dhcp and it will assign all the ip addresses. to get into the roughter's setup you open a browser (internet explorer, mozilla etc.) and type 192.168.1.1

No directions for attaching a phone line to mfc 240c.


small phone line goes from your wall switch to the rear of your ADSL modem, then the fatter wire goes from the modem to the input on the rear of your computer.
If it is wireless modem,,and you have a wireless connection on your computer then it should discover the connection by itself, after hooking all the wires up properly

It may also be an issue with a firewall on either computer. If you have McAfee, Norton or Windows Firewall enabled, disable it on both side and try the file sharing again. If it works, you will know that you have to check you firewall rules.
