Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

1 Answer

Wireless G Router

I have recently moved into a new house and brought my router with me (I have had no problems with it in the past). However in my new house the router does not work properly. It works fine when only once device is connected, but when I attempt to connect more than once device (i.e a second lap top or xbox) the connection drops and the router appears to crash and needs restarting. I have been onto my ISP (Ask4) and they insist its a problem with the router and I need to change the settings. However I'm not sure what I need to do so any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

The ask4 ISP has the following on their website.
"ask4 broadband works differently from most other broadband providers. With our broadband you do not need a telephone line or a modem, all you need is an Ethernet Enabled computer."

Assuming that this is the case, you need to make sure that your computer and other devices are hidden behind a standard firewall router, that supports NAT. (NAT stands for network address translation)

My other assumption is that by resetting your firewall router to the factory default settings. by and large this will enable a couple of things;
1 it will enable your router to obtain a Dynamic WAN address (this is the port plugged into the wall socket).
2 it will enable your routers inbuilt DHCP server, this will let your computers etc obtain a dynamic IP address + hide them behind your inbuilt firewall.

if you use the wireless option you will need to set this up from scratch, but I guess that you would have done this before. If you need further information check the routers user manual, just go to the manufactures website and search for your model the manual should freely avaliable.

Grandmothers laptop shows good signal and connection but wont let her on internet, using a belkin router. Brought laptop to my house and runs like a champ. Is it the router?


Yup. You may have a good wireless connection TO the ROUTER, but the router itself may have some trouble connecting to the internet.
Check the router management page, check DSL or cable status.
Ping to 208.67.222.222 just to check if it is DNS problem
hope this helps. cya

How do you change the password


There should be a reset button on the back on the router.
Try pressing it and holding it for 10 seconds while the power is on.

If you bought the router new and it never been used before, try login in with login: admin & pass: admin.

My Mac and my WPN824


All wireless routers do not accept unencrypted communications. Have the Macs in either/both cases either been moved from an environment requiring encryption to one not requiring encryption or requiring encryption with a different key. This also occurs when moving from a non-encrypted environment to an encrypted environment. Another possibility is that the wireless router in the new location does not broadcast it's SSID (name) and requires knowledge and entry of its name for access generally along with an encryption key. The person that setup the wireless router should be able to answer these questions and assist with the setup of the Mac's wireless adapter. Research would need to be made and I do not have a current Mac to test with to walk through the current process however this should provide the information for a knowledgeable Mac person to interface with person that configured the router or has the router configuration information to complete the changes necessary to allow access. If a short term solution is required and wired connections are possible (wired ethernet ports exist on both the router and the computer) using a wired connection to the router can be utilized to avoid the whole wireless configuration issue.
