Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
A common problem. First disable the wireless utility that came with the wireless interface in your computer. Let XP ( Vista? ) handle wireless connectivity alone - for now. Take the vendor's wireless utility out of your startup folder. Make sure you have downloaded and installed the latest driver & utility software from the manufacturer of your interface ( not the router ). Have only ONE thing asking for an IP address.
If that doesn't help, you may be getting interference from another recently added wireless device or appliance in the area. Access your router ( using your browser ) through the gateway address and lock it onto channel 1, 5, or 11 as an experiment. If one isn't reliable try another. Yeah, it ain't simple. You say it's NOW intermittent - what has changed in your world since it was reliable?

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.
- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.
