Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

We have WiFi set up at our house from the main desktop, we have 2 laptops that have built in wireless cards. We put in another desktop in the guest room for our guests to use but instead of buying a usb wireless or card for it can I use a BELKIN G Plus MIMO router I have at the house as a bridge to connect it?

Hey there joselko,
i'm chris from sw scotland. i have the same setup - 2 wireless laptops and a pc physically connected to the router with an ethernet cable.
you just plug the ethernet cable into the 'out' hole in the back of the router and into the ethernet port in the back of the PC. then start your PC. go to control panel, then internet settings, then hit the 'connection' tab, then click the radio button that says 'never dial a connection'.
you may have to reboot, but not necessarily.
both the laptops should continue to work wirelessly and the PC should now connect directly to the internet using the router.
if you have any problems, feel free to call me on 01776840273, and ask for chris, i'll be glad to help. you can also skype me on christophergrams or using the skype number 01414165437.
good luck.
chris

    oh sorry i read your question wrong. just attach a cable from one of the ports on the back on the back of your intenet hub and put the other end into red port in the back of your belkin. then a cable from the green port in the back of the belkin into your computer.
    if, after you have gone to control panel and clicked 'never dial a connection', and you still don't get an internet connection, it's possible that you might need the driver disk for the belkin router.

    http://web.belkin.com/support/download/d...

    that's the driver list for the router. as you can see, it only goes up to xp, so if you're using vista, you might have to contact belkin support for advice.

The Box claims there is a Guest Access. I find no reference or settings within the Router Set up for this activity. How do I set up Guest Access?


Hi Norman,
For guest access:
You can allow guests to use your Internet connection without joining your personal network.
.
The network name and password for the guest network is located on the network information card found under the foot of your Router
.
A person using your guest network will be able to join without a password, but will be shown a login page when they attempt to surf the Web..
They will need to enter the guest password into this page to continue.
Hope this helps!
Please Rate if it did!
Thanks,
Gary

Hp laptop not connecting to buffalo wireless router


does your laptop have the same type of wifi card? alot of people make this mistake over and over. all routers transmit at different frequences, you must make sure your wifi card accepts the same as the router. for example, if your router is a 802.11g, your laptop has to be a "g" aswel, modern wifi cards can take 3 or more different ones. the older the laptop is then the older the wifi card is, may need upgrading.

has your laptop connected to it or other routers before? check your wifi settings and make sure the routers wifi setting is turned to ON, you can gain access to the routers main settings byconnecting the router to your laptop via an ethernet cable, going to start, control panel, network and internet, right click your router and click properties, write down the I.P address it gives you on screen, then open internet exlorer, and type the I.P address you wrote down, press enter. you should now have access to all the main settings. hope this helps

Want to put lock on guest


Linksys E series routers can broadcast 2 wireless networks. First one is the main wireless network which is secured wireless network.
The second network is a guest network which will always show you unsecured.
It will never show you secured and you can not make it secured.
However it has a web based security.
Anyone can connect to the guest network but will not be able to access Internet without Guest access password.
In other words there is a security.
You can disable guest access also.

I would go wireless. Try to connect to the net using a laptop (wireless) at the guest house. If the signal strength is decent you should be fine with getting a wireless NIC for the PC in the guest house.

If the signal strength is bad, either buy a 802.11N router (make sure it's N and not draft N, these should be available now or within a few weeks (nov 09), or buy another access point and connect it via ethernet to the main access point. you only want one modem and one gateway generally speaking.
