Re: Belkin Wireless G router
If you're computer is slow in the internet connection because of this router, that will be cause by the router since this device has a built in firewall inside it and the speed of internet that you have before when directly connected to your modem wont be same ecause of that, and there's no way you can add up a memory on this router, if you want try to update the frmware of the router and that will help in speeding up the connection....

You should be able to see there is wireless networks available by the 5 bar slope on the right hand bottom side of the screen.
If so You can click on the icon and choose which router to access by the name, your should be Belkin.
Then put in the wireless password you set up.
If you have not set up the router you need to physically connect to it by plugging in a cable from the pc to the router LAN ports, you cannot set it up via the wireless network.
See the webpage here.
theres a million things that can interfer with wireless...tin...cell phones, cordless phones and the like..but 11mbps is still really fast and chances are, your internet connection isnt even half that so your speed on the net shouldnt be effected...1mbps is usualy enough to load any website in seconds.
if your PC is slow, not jsut on the internet but in general (starting up, running apps) then its an issue with the pc and not the wireless.
but as a heads up, not trying to be mean, but netgear and belkin are cheap equipment.
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
The connectivity issue with your Belkin router could be due to a couple of different items. Your ISP might even be able to shed a little light on the subject.
I would also go to Belkin's website, and go to the support area by clicking on Support Center in the left pane of the sight. You can then search for your product number. With the results that you receive, you will be able to see what version of firmware they have, which is like doing a software upgrade on your computer. There should also be a step by step process on the website for you to install the firmware. I would do it from a desktop that is connected physically to the router.
Please let me know if you would like further assistance with this matter. Thank you.
You should be aware of a class action lawsuit that Belkin and the complaintent settled recently. The lawsuit was filed complaining that certain Belkin routers did not obtain optimal speeds as advertised.
Belkin has agreed to provide affected customers a discount program to purchase a new router. You will need to search elsewheres for the details.
