Question about Belkin Routers

Router keeps knocking off laptop and desktop ISP service

My router keeps knocking my laptop offline, the router was setup next to my roomates desktop and it worked fine for a week, then off one day back on never consistent. we tried using the manual CD and it keeps saying check the router and restart, and somehting about a reset button but I found none on my router. If it is not the cable ISP, and his service works fine disconnected, it has to be the router. I am wonderingi if buying a cheap one is causing me to get this spotty service? I have been told that I need to synch it with the desktop using the setup CD, but my roomate doesnt think so. The Indian call center are hard to understand and follow... can you help?

HEY,
Make sure the router is properly connected and the physical setup is ok, not kept close to any emitting electronic device like a speaker. Connect the router hard wired, Access the modem's gui by the ip address. (type in ipconfig in you command window, the default gateway will be your modems IP) once you type that ip address in the address bar of IExp. it will ask you for the uid and the password, leave it blank or use admin as username and password is blank... Take the uid and the password for your internet from your internet service provider... eg AT&T or Primus Canada. Enter that in there and and try to configure the router.

but before you move on to the router. make sure the modem has the DSL light solid and not blinking... Try it and let me know..

Hi Good Day,

1) Check if your router have the capability to broadcast b/g/n signal.

2) you try replacing your son's desktop wireless card compatible with your router.

3) you can call your ISP and request to change the router that can broadcast b/g/n signal.


God Bless.

1 If you don't have a switch connected to the router or if your other devices are not on the Wireless allowed list in the router whoever has priority on the connection will knock the others device off that is xbox, laptops etc. Because bandwidth is being decreased and the connection is giving first come first serve priority.
You will need a switch or setup each wireless device in the router .
Instructions:
. power router off
2.connect all three computer you want to connect.
3. start computers one at a time completely
4. check router for status light per computer to see if device is seen by router.
5. open web page to see if each computer is online.
7. do ipconfig / release/renew if not connected

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

How do you hook up a dynex 802.11g wireless router


Hi,
To setup your Dynex router you can follow the below steps
  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be http://192.168.0.1 and then type the username as "admin" and the password is blank so leave the password box as blank
  5. You need to set it up as per your internet service provider if you do not have any fixed IP address provided by ISP then select dynamic IP address and then click on clone mac address after saving these settings on the router setup page you can check if you are able to access internet then you can do the wireless settings
  6. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  7. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  8. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  9. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  10. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  11. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it

How to install and will this box allow my desktops(2 of them ) to both be connected to a wireless network?


There are 2 ways to setup Netgear
1. Setup Wizard (which guides you through a setup wizard)
2. Manual Configuration (you need to put all values in router manually)

Here we are not discussing Setup Wizard as Manual configuration is far much easier then auto configuration

To configure (config) Netgear we need to get into router page
To open router config page
1. Open Internet Explorer (Start>>all prog>>Internet Explorer)
2. Type in address bar 192.168.0.1
3. In username box type admin (where it says gateway 192.168.0.1 requires username & password)
4. In password box type password (word password itself)
After this you will find Netgear ADSL Wireless Router Setup page

Here we need to select Basic Settings (as shown below)
basicsettings.jpg


after this you will find next page as

basicsettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page (Basic Settings Page)

Does your internet connection requires login, Select Yes
Select Encapculation as PPPoE
Login is Username as provided by your ISP
Password is your password for broadband connection as provided by your ISP
Keep Idle timeout as 0

after this simply press apply without changing anything else


Now We Need to click on ADSL Settings Page
adslsettings.jpg


Now on ADSL Setting Page We got only 3 options

adslsettingsscreen.jpg
Multiplexing Method Should be LLC-Based
VPI 0
VCI 35

now just press apply again

By this time your router should be only (you can check it by opening any website on Internet Explorer or by router status option on netgear page)


To Config Wireless

Click on Wireless Option (on left hand side blue panel)

wirelesssettings.jpg


It should display next page as

wirelesssettingsscreen.jpg

Here in this page

Wireless Network Name (SSID) Alpha-Numeric name which would be displayed as your wireless network name

Region Here Select Your Region

Channel: Select whichever channel give you best sighal (9, 11, 13 are recommended)

Keep the TIck on Enable Wireless Access Point

Keep the Tick on Allow Broadcast of Name (SSID)

Can Untick Wireless Isolation

Then Jump to Security Options

Select WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre Shared Key)

then in WPA-PSK Security Encryption type in anything of your own choice but alphabets and numbers both should be there and make it between 8 to 63 characters long.
WPA-PSK Security Encryption Key is your password for wireless network

Now Press Apply and your router is ready for wireless too

After doing this you can change MTU (Maximum Transmit Unit) size to 1400 from WAN Setup Option

You can find WAN Setup Option in same blue panel on left hand side of screen

wansetup.jpg

Here you just need to change MTU to 1400 and need not to change any other setting

wansetupscreen.jpg

Now its all done and router is ready to send wireless signal to your system/laptop

Have you checked to make sure your internet is connected through your router, and DHCP is turned on. Sounds like you may have internet connection sharring setup through your desktop and it is acting as the dhcp server
