Can you run a seperate router for your dvr and another one for computer wired connection


It's hard to tell exactly what you have but it sounds like you have DSL on the 2wire. If everything is hard wired you can use the LAN Ethernet ports on the Belkin as a switch. You should to assign a static IP on the Belkin for management purposes and shut off its DHCP server. The static IP should be something in the range assigned by the 2wire but out of its DHCP range. Like 192.168.0.5 You will not need the WAN port on the Belkin. After you reconfigure the Belkin connect the Ethernet port on the 2wire to it. Along with your PC and DVR. I think it has 4 LAN ports so that will leave one open. It would probably be easier to buy a switch at the store.

The wifi connection to this belkin play max is not stable, sometimes get connected, sometimes not. i connected the external hard drive to the usb port, at first i can see the drive using belkin router...


OK let me disable something in your router

QOS

Supported Products - Play Wireless Router (F7D4302), Play Max Wireless Router (F7D4301)

Using QoS rules on your Belkin Router helps provide both bandwidth and priority to network traffic so it can pass without its performance being affected. It allows users to classify traffic of applications and provides them with differentiated services (Diffserv).


Setup Steps


  1. Click on the green Belkin Router Manager icon (right-click for Windows) to open the menu.
  2. On the Belkin Router Manager menu, scroll up to Router Settings and highlight.
  3. Click to open the Belkin Router Setup page on your Web browser.

You must log in with a password to make changes to your Router's settings. If you have not yet set a custom up a password, leave this field blank and click the "Submit" button.

  1. From the QoS Profiles page, you can easily set up QoS rules.
  2. Click the "Apply Changes" button to save your settings.

Also disable WPS and Firewall in router.


let me know .

My router works when connected as wireless, but when I connect an ethernet cable to this, it does not work. This is required as I am trying to connect a network hard drive via the ethernet connection.


Hi. I suggest you double check first if the ethernet cable you're using is a known good cable if yes then that should be on your router configuration that enables you to use the ethernet cable, so I think you need to contact your Internet Service Provider regarding this matter because by default you should have the access using the ethernet cable, and they'll be the one to configure your router. Hope this helps

Belkin router can't connect to internet


This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

I have this router Belkin G Router Model :


belkin routers are compatible with all ISPs.... all that it requires is an ethernet cable that should come from ISP, either directly or through modem... so if your virgin connection gives you an ethernet port in their modem, you can configure the belkin router accordingly...

I have a Huawei EC 168 usb modem from alltel and would like to know if it can be used with my belkin N+ router


inorder to connect to the belkin router you should have an ethernet outlet from the modem...even if it is an usb modem, go ahead and check whether there is an ethernet port...if there is an ethernet port, then connect it to the MODEM port of BELKIN router using an ethernet cable...if no ethernet port is found then it willnot be possible to connect to the belkin router...
because belkin router has got only ethernet port for getting connected to the ISP...

pls rate me if its useful...

How do I connect the Belkin F5D8236 N+ router to my PS3 so that I could recognize a external drive that is plugged into the USB on the router? I can connect the PS3 to the network but the drive isn't...


You cannot install the Belkin CD on PS3, you can access your external HDD only on wired or wireless devices that has operating systems like Windows or MAC. With PS3, we can play on the network or stream videos.
