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 think the power cable of your modem has been damaged. kindly check the power cable. If there is no light on the modem , it is assumed to be that the power cable has been damaged. so you have to purchase the power cable of the modem. If the power cable is found to be perfect , kindly purchase the net work cables/ OR prepare the net work cables if you are aware of about the network cables., because the clippings of the network cables might have spoiled. If the power cable of modem, network cables are found to be perfect , it is certainly , the modem might have damaged. To fix the all the problems mentioned above , you are requested to to contact your ISP ( Internet Service Provider) . They will certainly fix your problems. In the mean while kindly try to solve yourself. If you are paying rent towards the monthly charges against the modem to ISP , they must be replace your modem with new one. If you have purchased the modem by paying the cost of the modem at the time of installation of the internet connection , you have to purchase the new modem, if the old modem was found to be damaged.
This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.
I had this with Bt Internet and this exact same router, you have to phone Belkin up and they give you a complete set of new settings that you manually have to put in during setup. If i remember rightly its a free phone number and the operator who answered spoke semi-english so not all bad, hope this helps.
Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.
What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?
Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
