Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

My laptop suddenly cannot connect to the router.

Up until this afternoon my laptop refuses to connect to the Belkin router. It's working wired because I'm directly connected to it now. It sticks on waiting for network but never moves on to the acquiring network address part. Then it says network not connected. My other roomate is getting the wireless internet and she has a Macbook pro just like me. The lap top is picking up other networks that are nearby. I tried resetting the router, making sure the MAC filtering is off, and I changed the channel in case of interference. Is it something to do with my laptop? (It has been randomly dropping the router for a week now)

It comes down to a few things with routers and wireless connections:
1. If you have been dropping the signal over the past few weeks try doing a test on the wireless network connection via the diagnostic tool within the specific wireless connection.
2. You may have gotten a bad update to the wireless card. Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.
3. Try deleting the wireless connection for your router and then make 'a new' wireless connection.

Belkin Wireless router problem?


Hello
Sounds like you took all the right steps.In add and remove programs at the control panel,remove your wireless card drivers and anything related to it.
Be sure to write down your wep security key from your router first.

Then remove the card,reboot,put the card back in,then reinstall the drivers.

If this does not work the wireless card may be bad.

Hope this helps.

Trying a add another desk top to an existing Belkin wireless G router at home. Right now there's a desk top and laptop working off this router.Try several times and still can't connect to internet.


Make sure the Belkin wireless is the only device directly connecting to your internet service provider's router/modem. Usually that port is labelled "WAN" or even "Internet". The Belkin should have extra ports/jacks for WIRED connections, right? You then connect the PC into the other remaining ports/jacks on the Belkin (if they're wired) or just use the wireless for the laptop if the laptop has wireless. After getting the wireless going, though, you should lock it down by using WPA encryption key if possible.

Having a problem with my belkin router and need some help ... please! All of a sudden this afternoon the Modem light started flashing yellow and our internet has been down. I have checked all of the cords,...


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

Belkin 54 Wireless Internet Connection Problems


Hello,

If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.

Good Luck.
