Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Wireless Repeater/Bridge (Belkin)

I have a Belkin Vision One as my main router.
I have an old Kiss Media Player which has an ethernet connection (but no wireless). This is in a room with no ethernet cable.

I want to use my old Belkin Wireless Route (f5d7230-4) to connect physically to the Kiss box and wirelessly to my main wireless network.
How do I do this?

How to connect the ASUS EA-N66R as a range extender.


SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER 1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's RJ45 port with a LAN cable. 2. Open a browser, then enter the router's URL configuration's IP address, This is usually something similar to 192.168.0.1 3. Enter the configuration user name and password. The router will display the various router settings. 4. Go to the page that changes the IP address of the router. Changed the IP address so that it is not the same as the main router on the network, or any other network devices. If the main router on the network is set to 192.168.1.1 then the repeater router should use a higher number (ie. 10), such as 192.168.1.10 or higher, depending on how many devices are on your network. 5. Disable the repeater router's DHCP server. This setting should be on the same page as the IP address, (this may be different depending on the make of the router). When the main router is operating normally, this server assigns an IP address to every device that is connected to your network. Because this router is used as a repeater, the main router on your network will still issue the IP addresses. 6. Also turn off the DNS server, if it is activated. This function will be taken over by the main router. 7. Disable any firewall settings on the repeater router. This is usually in the "Security" section, depending on the make and model of your router. 8. Remove all in the "Port Forwarding" section. Some routers may refer to this as "Applications and Gaming," and it allows less-restricted access to the internet. 9. Set the operating mode switch to "Gateway" or "Switch" if applicable. Also, if the repeater router is a wireless router then disable the wireless access or set it to access point only. 10. Save the settings for each page, and reboot the router. When the router boots up, the changes will allow it to act as a simple repeater. 11. Now, place the repeater router in a new location and connect both routers with a Ethernet cable in each of the router's RJ45 LAN ports, and power it up both routers.

I need to bridge 2 belkin N300 routers


The easiest way to bridge 2 routers is to turn off the DHCP and NAT on one of them, and connect them from port1 to port1. This of course reduces the number of available ethernet connections, but it does bridge them together... basically it turns one of them into nothing more than a hub/switch.

My internet is greatly reduced with Belkin N1 vision wireless (before the hook-up it was 15mbps now only 5mbps), I have tested by hooking directly from the modem to the computer and got 15mbps. Before N1,...


When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.

I have two Dell 2350 Wireless Routers trying to bridge or repeat


The first router must the root AP and the second should be set to Wireless Repeater. Follow the steps on how to resolve this setup.

1. Get the Wireless MAC Address of the main router. The router has two MAC addresses, one is wired and 1 is wireless. To determine the wireless MAC address, go to Status page of the router, there's a sub tab there for wireless and you'll see the Wireless MAC Address. Take note of it.

2. Access the setup page of the 2nd router. Change the LAN IP address to 192.168.0.2 then save. Power cycle it by just turning it off for 10 seconds then turn it back on. You can now change it to Wireless Repeater and there's an option for you to type the Wireless MAC address of the main AP. Make sure all wireless settings are the same on both routers like SSID, Channel and Encryption Key. Save your changes after that.

3. From your computer, try to ping the 2nd AP which is 192.168.0.2. If it replied back, you're all set.

Good Luck!

Hello, I currently use a Belkin F5D8631 as my Modem Router. I have a spare Belkin F5D7633. Can I use the 7633 as a repeater/bridge to extend my wireless range? If so, how?! Thank you


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.

If you want some tips on how to improve your wireless range, check out this site http://www.microsoft.com/athome/moredone/wirelesstips.mspx. Hope this helps.

Can I use my belkin N1 Vision as a bridge?


It can't be used as a bridge but you can use it as an Access Point. All you need to do is disable the DHCP server of the router and don't use the Internet/WAN port

Use Belkin f5d7230-4 as a wireless access point


Hi Druid,

Based upon what I've read regarding and experience with the F5D7230-4 is it will only work with another F5D7230-4 or F5D7231-4, F5D7130, F5D7132 and this are all Belkin products as well I thiink it has something to do with the WDS compliance for this specific model that's why they have clearly specified on the User Guide which devices are guaranteed to work with an F5D7230-4 that is set to AP Mode(Bridge/Repeater).

If you really want to exend the wireless coverage of your Linksys router I suggest you try the Wireless G Range expander(WRE54G v2.0/3.0 version 1.0 I do not recommend since it's somewhat challenging to configure since it has no ethernet port all the setup will be done wirelessly)

click this link for the User Guide of your Belkin router.
