    Look for a conflict in IP addresses. Right click on network properties and check that each machine is set to Obtain IP address automatically. The router is going to give out at lest 50 IP addresses and they all can work at once. The other thing you might try is bring the second laptop up first and then see if the first forces out the second.



    Hope you understand what I just said :-)

How many pc's, laptop's & printer's can i link up to belkin n1 vision wireless router model f5d8232-4


You can uplink a fairly good number of PCs or laptops with Belkin N1 as it supports high bandwidth. Keep in mind that upon adding every new PC, the overall bandwidth for the other PCs is reduced. If the PCs/ laptops do not require much bandwidth, you can connect / add more PCs to the network.
Generally, I have uplinked upto 10-15 clients to one router and the network worked just fine. It all depends upon the network environment and the bandwidth usage by each client PC. If the PCs are using just email and simple internet browsing (and remain idle for most of the time), you can add more clients to your network as not all the systems consume network resources at the same time.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

1. disconnect the Ethernet cord for 30 seconds then reconnect it to the router
2. contact your ISP to see if you have lost connectivity with them,there may be an issue with the line or there IP licences, a fiber cut or disconnect at the central office or cable headend.
3.

3.Note router name you are connecting to.
2.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
3. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up

in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access

through a browser.
4..Note router name you are connecting to.

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
7. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model

router
8. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal

from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router

is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Only one of my laptops can access the wireless network. When trying to log on the others we enter the pass word and i say can not connect I have a Belkin G wireless router and a road runner cable ISP


Can you provide details of the other PCs Try the following
1) remove wireless profiles http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm from your PCs and then try to reconnect 2) Log into the router and remove the wireless security and see if the PCs can now connect and if so - try adding security again

Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop


This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.

Two routers


you cannot have 2 routers on the same system, you will cause ip address conflicts as each router is a gateway and gives your pcs their ip addreses

YES> If you will install a router into your network, it will share the internet conenction among the two computers. Both wireless and wired. So the connection will be from

Modem ----> Router (wireless/wired capable)   ------> PCs (two Pcs both the desktop and the laptop

 

and you can also add up another PC if you want to.

Connect the Router to the modem using Ethernet wire and then connect the laptop with an ethernet cord also and run the set up cd. make sure you get the right cabling.

and if you wnat to go wireless , then after running the set up cd, and was successful to make the wired conenction worked, then you can unplug the laptop now from the router and check if able to detect signal form router. usually you will get the prompt on the lower right hand cormer of the laptop.

then if is able to detect the signal, then log -on to that network.
