Your modem is not the same...... the red/green arrows does not apply as it is for the other device

you need to log into you modem (the quick setup guide will tell you how to do this)

the status page will tell you if you are connected on adsl (there is also a link light on the modem itself which goes solid on (not flashing) when connected properly

if on the status page it is not reading as connected you need to check your logon info and check the logs to see why it is not connecting..

if it reports that it is connected, then there are a few system properties that you need to check.

open Internet properties (right click on intenet explorer, choose internet options) in the connection menu, choose "Never dial a connection" press Apply, then press "LAN settings" button and tick box "Automatically detect settings"

close Internet explorer then open internet explorer, it should spend a few seconds checking your settings then it should get out to the internet..

job done...

Belkin F5D77230-4 - connecting to modem


Hi,

It would seem that:
Your modem has only USB output;
Your Router has only Ethernet input with WiFi & 4 LAN port outputs; and
You want your laptop to be access the Internet through wireless connection.

There are USB to Ethernet converter/adapter, an example is shown here.

There are on the otherhand, comparable modems to what you have that provides both a USB and an Ethernet output such as the ProLink H9000 shown here .

Perhaps your best course of action is give your provider first a call and see if you can require them to replace your modem with another model/version, one that has an Ethernet output or a combination.

Alternately, a way can be configured if you have a desktop that has both a USB and Ethernet that we can set up as Gateway (but this is the long method).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Huawei EC 168 usb modem from alltel and would like to know if it can be used with my belkin N+ router


inorder to connect to the belkin router you should have an ethernet outlet from the modem...even if it is an usb modem, go ahead and check whether there is an ethernet port...if there is an ethernet port, then connect it to the MODEM port of BELKIN router using an ethernet cable...if no ethernet port is found then it willnot be possible to connect to the belkin router...
because belkin router has got only ethernet port for getting connected to the ISP...

pls rate me if its useful...

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

By the way, excellent choice in modems.

Modem connection


Your modem should have a RJ11 (phone) jack and a RJ45 (ethernet) jack. Phone line-in to modem RJ11. Ethernet cable from RJ45 to modem to router; maybe labeled WAN or modem port . Ethernet from any of the switch ports (or the only one avail, depending on your model) to you pc if it has a ethernet card in it. After that it's all up to the configuration.
