Hi!
I'm sorry to hear that Belkin did not help you with your problem. Let me help you with your concern instead.

Here's what we need to do:

Start by resetting the router to factory default - you just need to press and hold the rest button on the router for about 30 seconds (with the power on).

1.) Disconnect the Belkin router from your modem , connect a PC to the router (use the LAN port - either port 1 to 4).

2.) Open Internet browser - clear the address bar and type in http://192.168.2.1 , press enter. It will ask you for a password , do not type anything just press Submit. You should be able to access the router's web interface.

The router's web interface should like this (depending on the model #):

My Belkin 4 port router - 92853d1.jpg



3.) Go to LAN settings. Change the router's IP address to 10.10.10.1 (this will be the new IP address of your router) . Apply the changes. Once youapply the changes, you can access the router using the new IP - http://10.10.10.1.

4.) Reconnect your modem - router and computers. Reboot device by switching off the modem , router and PC.

5.) Power up the modem first. Wait for about 2 minutes, power up the router and restart your PC.

The steps I gave is applicable if your modem is not on bridge mode. If your modem is on bridge mode (meaning it requires a username and password from your ISP) - access again the router by going to http://10.10.10.1 and do the following:

Click Internet WAN > Connection Type and select PPPOE. Type the username and password from your ISP. Apply the settings. Reboot the modem and router.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

    Is there any case that the port from belkin router


    This may happen due to double NAT issue.... the DSL modem might give an IP address in the range of belkin route....that is 192.168.2.X check for the ip address when the computer is directly connected to the DSL modem... now check for the IP adress when the Belkin alone is connected to the computer.... if they both give an IP adress like this 192.168.2.X......(X can be any value) then you will face the above issue..... in that case you can login to router and change the IP address of belkin router from 192.168.2.X to 192.168.15.X this will resolve the issue

    Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


    1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
    (I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
    I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
    But it won't work!
    Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
    Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

    I am trying to configure my netgear router to work with my dsl motorola modem


    You can access your wireless router by first running you ethernet cable from pc to wireless, then in address bar, type 192.168.1.1 and this will enter the wireless router's software. If it asks for username and password, try typing admin for both.
