It is possible that your router has reset itself and lost the firewall configuration. you will need to find out what port numbers the games are using and enter them back into the firewall

If you are able to surf the internet and view websites then your router is working just fine. Sounds like you've run into a couple websites that are not working. This may be on thier end. Sometimes websites undergo maintenance. When that happens nobody can connect to thier site. If this is the case your router is working just fine. Here is a really good link to test your internet connection.

Hi, my Belkin N Wireless router works in some way fine with both Wired and Wireless connection, but there is a problem, it will only allow me to connect wired to my computer and not to my PlayStation 3......


You may need to change settings in your router to enable your online games to work. Some games need to use specific ports; these ports may be closed due to the router's firewall. Please refer to your game's documentation for the ports required.

Use the following answer to configure these ports in your router.



In order to configure this, you need to know:

- The IP address of the computer or device to have the port forwarded to.

- The port numbers to be used and whether these are TCP or UDP ports

(Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router.)

Setup steps:

  1. Open a Web Browser on the computer. Type in http://192.168.2.1
  2. In the address bar of the Web Browser type Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

  1. Click on Virtual Servers under Firewall in the menu on the left

  1. Enter the following information
    • Click Enabled
    • Type a general description of the application i.e.. Remote Desktop
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Inbound port fields
    • Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH for the Type.
    • Private IP address: Enter the IP address of the computer you want grant access too.
    • Type the port(s) specified by the program manufacture for both of the Private port fields.

Samsung BD 6300 blue ray player does not connect to wireless access point. Gateway ping seems to be the issue, current gateway is on the network. Using my landlords router with his permission. Suggestions...


I'm not sure if I'm reading this right but, Is the Access Point in your apt? Or are you trying to access his router directly with your 'Player?


If you are trying to connect to an actual Access Point, try connecting to the AP from your computer either wireless or via the Ethernet cable and set it up to access his router/internet. When you can surf the Web or access his network on the computer using the AP then unplug the cable if you used it and just go into the Samsung's network settings and try again.

The only other thing I can think of is make sure his router is set to MIX, b/g/n speeds.

I am trying to connect my laptop to wireless internet, but it keeps asking for the security key. What is it?


an access key is configured in the wireless routers web console to allow only the users with the key to connect to it. sometimes referred to as a "WEP KEY" or "WPA key" or "authentication code" To login to your web console, join your computer to your wireless router with a network cable (yellow below) to an Ethernet port 1,2,3 or 4 ef8efd2.jpg open your browser and surf to (instead of www) 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (most common) you should presented with a login screen most common username and password is admin and admin a482702.jpgonce you have logged in look for your wireless security setup screen such as this.....5be26fc.jpg
look for the Wireless and Security Screens to enter or check your access security code, enter a code or review the existing one. Then once you save your changes you can connect with your laptop, now that you know the security key.6679972.jpg

Game server and my IP address


First option is to forward ports where your friends can connect to. The second option is to put your computer in DMZ. These options can be found on the router settings.

My Belkin F5D8053 is working in low strength


If you're encountering a very internet connection on your router, this is can be a problem with either the internet connection from your modem or the firmware of the router should be updated, first thing that you can try is to update the firmware of the firmware of the router, you can download the latest firmware of it from Belkin web site then after that observe the connection if you still have a slow internet using the router , Try to check now the internet from your modem by connecting a computer directly to your modem and if you still have the same problem internet connection from your ISP is the problem so you can contact them about that..........

Hooking up my gaming router


There is a 90 % possibility that the wireless settings on the gaming adapter and the router are not the same. Try to reconfigure this again. Remember that the gaming adapter's wireless settings needs to synchronize with that of the router to make the gaming adpater works. Call netgear and verify the settings on your wireless connection and reverify the settings you have on the adapter. For manual instructions, see user guide at www.linksys.com/download
