I am using the Belkin N1 wireless router. Is it possible to uses 2 range extenders to get a connection around corners? Or, is it possible to use 2 Belkin N1 wireless routers for the same purpose. I am trying to get a connection through approx. 6 walls. I get a faint connection, which goes in and out using the Belkin with a range extender (Linkseys). Do you know of any other setup that may work? WindowsXP, superpack 2 Thanks for any help that you may give me.

You can Convert the Router as an Access Point But your Wireless Modem Should Be Hard wired to router. But if your Router has an wireless Bridge Option in it you can Convert it as an Range Extender. Check For the Wireless Bridging Feature on your Router or Please Post your Router's Model Number Here. I Will Be Glad to Help you out... :)
You have to set your Router toward the edge of your network's current range limit
Then you have to install and navigate to the Admin Panel of the Router (if already installed, skip the installations option). Use a browser. IP Address would be http://192.168.0.1.
Click on the "LAN Settings" (Below "LAN Setup"). Now you have to have the Number of Devices which you are going to connect to the Network.
Click inside the text box for the wireless router's IP address at the center of the screen. Delete the last number in the IP address. You have to Type in a number that is AT LEAST Number of Devices + 1. Lets say you are gonna connect 50 Devices. Then the Number = 51.
Now go to "DHCP Settings". Click on the option button "Turn Off".
Click on "DNS" below the "Internet WAN" title. Click on the "Disable Forwarding" option button.
Click on "Security" and Scroll down until you see "Port Forwarding". Remove each IP in the Text boxes. Find the option button "Gateway" and Click on it.
Click on the "Application Gateway" underneath the "Firewall". Click on the box which has the Label "Disable Firewall".
Click Apply and Ok.
Make sure you have a Strong Password for the Router. As you can see the Security is bit not tighten.
Generally the N standard rotuer do not require any Range Extender s. However if you are trying to use Range Extender with N router. You need to use G or B/G mode mixed, also you have to change the channel from Auto (as in Linksys Router,not sure about Belkin Router) 6 or 11, So that the Wireless connection can detect the Range Extender.

This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.
I have 2 x Belkin N1 vision dsl (cable) routers. One is connected fine with Virgin 20 meg broadband. Is it possible to use the other N1 vision router as a range extender up stairs to get better signal , without using any cat5 cabling ? I.e router-to-router
Temporarily plug in wire network cable into Dell and log into Dell.
1. Set wireless up the same as the Belkin. Save these settings.
2. Set WAN to "Static IP Address and give it an address about 25 higher than Belkin. (Belkin 220.127.116.11 - Del 192.168.0.26). Save these settings.
3. Disable DHCP and Save these settings.
Exit web browser and disconnect network cable. Restart your complete system, first the Belkin, then the Dell, then your computers.
This way, the Belkin is running and able to assign IP addresses to all that start after it.
It will not extend your wireless range. If you connect your spare Belkin F5D7633 to your Belkin F5D8631, one of them would have to be set to "bridge mode" or a pass through modem so that there will be no conflicts as to which modem will receive the ip address from the network. If you set your modem/router to bridge mode, it would disable its wireless function because it will only be a pass-through device.

well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.
