Re: Router down when copy files

Check in your routers settings via your browser that the file transfer speed is no higher than 54 mbps, as it may be set at 108 mbps or 125 mbps as a 'g' type router should be, but your wireless network adapters can only work at 54 mbps and are crashing the transfers.

How do I resest Belkin wireless router

There is usually a small hole on the back or bottom of the Belkin router that you insert a open paper clip into and gently push it in till the unit goes of and starts blinking. It will reset all the settings and passwords to factory defaults. Copy down any important settings you have made before doing the reset.

Wireless connection to belkin g router model no. f5d7230-4

You need to access the setup page of the router using connected computer.

In your browser's address bar, type

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

Take note of the SSID. This is the name of your wireless connection.

Then go to Security under Wireless. Copy the network key.

On your friend's laptop, view the available wireless networks, you should see the SSID, then just enter the network key.

I hope this helps!

Can't download files and upgrade using my wireless

If you connect the computer to the modem, you are able to download the files.
But if you connect it through the router, it is not working.
the problem is with the router. Cogeco is a cable ISP.
you can reduce the MTU settings on the router. If MTU on the router is 1500 then Make it 1300.
Under security settings, disable the firewall on the router and disable the Block internet request.
If it doesn't work then try to upgrade the Firmware of the router.

Wireless Router use with Wildblue Satelite Modem

You should be aware of a class action lawsuit that Belkin and the complaintent settled recently. The lawsuit was filed complaining that certain Belkin routers did not obtain optimal speeds as advertised.
Belkin has agreed to provide affected customers a discount program to purchase a new router. You will need to search elsewheres for the details.
