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.

belkin does not support this. The only way you can do it is by running a cable to the router to extend your wireless signal around the house. I did a similar setup with a powerline network adapter if running a cat5 cable is not a option. just make sure you change the main ip address for the 2nd router to like 192.168.2.2 and disable dhcp since the main router will handle dhcp. also make sure the wireless settings are the same and channel is different if 1st router is channel 1 then use channel 6 or 11 for the 2nd 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. Thanks for using FixYa
its ok,it can be tough for non savvy users to use networking gear.belkins are very user friendly. the top port on the back of the router is where the modem cable goes,modem cable is a cat6 cable if you dont have a cable handy. the ac adaptor goes into the very bottom port.
You need to configure your router. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
On my Belkin router the wireless light only light up when somebody is actually connected using wireless - it also flashes orange when somebody is trying to connect but failing - my router is a F5D8236uk4
I have a Mac Pro and a Belkin F5D 7230-4 Router. The Mac links to the WiFi but will not go on to the internet. The Router works fine with a wired PC and other wireless PCs. I have updated the Belkin with the latest Firmware but it does not help. I have tried powering down the Router and 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.
What is the brand of the router your using? This information will be from the router that you have. Use a wired connection from the router,check your default gateway (ipconfig) and type that numbers in your address bar. You will be able to access your set-up page, look for wireless tab and look for wireless security. You will see there your WEP key.
