Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)

1 Answer

I am unable to get my son's new Ipod touch to connect to the internet. I believe the issue is conencted to the fact that our Belkin router will no longer automaticall obtain an ip address, I have to put it in manually for the 4 computers in our house. Unfortunately, I do not know how to do that on the Ipod. I'm thinking if I can fix the router to consistently obtain the IP address automatically then the Ipod connectivity issue might also get solved. Thanks

SOURCE: IP address

Hi tammyhope,
I would guess that your ISP is providing a dynamic IP address for connectivity to the internet. If your router is changing the IP address back to default, I would think that your configuration is not setup properly, to receive a dynamic address, but is set with a static address instead. So what happens is that when you attempt to connect to your ISP your router is resetting. If this is the case then you need to go into the router configuration and set it to recieve a dynamic address from your ISP.

I have to agree with the previous post about MAC address filtering. I had this same issue as you with a Belkin and discovered that it was the channel frequency that was the issue whilst security was on. Channels 6 and 9 seemed to do the trick.
Some Mac computers only work well on on channels 6 and 9. Try changing your wireless router to channel 6 and then work your way up the channels until you have a good connection. This usually solves the issue. Rather common on Mac.

1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

My ipod could not connect to the internet

Hi suzettemaica,

I see that you are having issue connecting your iPod to your Wireless Network.

I believe that your Wireless Network has a Network key or a Password on it for your security right, to be able to get your iPod conencted wirelessly you will need to disable the Wireless security because mobile phone do not have same security that a Wireless Router would have once you have disabled the Wireless Security of your Router then you can connect your iPod.

To get security on your Wireless you will need to enable the MAC Address filtering, this will be an alternative to a wireless security on Routers.

You mentioned you have a Belkin wireless Router, you did not mention what model but that is OK, I will try to give details as simple as I can for the wireless issue and the MAC Address Filtering.

Click on this Link this will give you a basic on the Router settings, but first we will need to find out what your Router's Default Gateway is.

To find out your Router Default Gateway you can click on start then type CMD on the white bar and type in CMD right click on it then select run as administrator.

This should open a new window DOS to be exact, you will see C:\ with a blinking cursor and most probably you computer name after C:\ then type in ipconfig then press enter , a list should show look for default gateway .

Once you have your default gateway open up IE or any Browser that you have and type the Default gateway on the Address Bar then press enter this should Open a page of you Routers Settings.

now you can click on this Link to see what you see from your router or you can just basically use what you have from your router which is exactly where your settings will be. Link

Oh yeah for your Router I am not sure if it has a user name or a password since I did not get what Model you have, but you can try to leave the user name blank and the password blanks as well to get in which is a default with Belkin.

Look for Wireless then under should be security click on security then you will see security mode and a drop down select None to disable the password on the Router then click Apply Changes.

Now for the MAC Address you should see Filtering then below is Mac Address just click on it then it will be asking Mac Addresses of all the devices that you need to connect on the Wireless network to be able to register them in the Router for access to the Internet the Mac Address can also be found by goin into DOS and doing the IPCONFIG for you iPod you can just connect to the router with out the Mac Address filtering first then go in the Router settings you should see the Mac Address of the devices connected to the Belkin Router.

I hope that i was clear enough for this.

Have a nice day,

How can i have an internet connection with my itouch gadget thru belkin router? thank you.

  • Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch.

  • Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks.

  • Select the wireless network you want to connect to (Belkin something). You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join."

  • Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature.

  • Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network."

  • Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.

    I bought the belkin play router and it says it cant find a connection to my verizon modem. Help

    what type of internet do you have? does your internet require a username and password to connect ? Im not familiar with verizon but I believe you will have to input the information such as username and password for the PPPOE conenction on the router to be able to access the internet from the modem and be able to send the signal as a wireless internet from your router, try getting in your belkins GUI graphical user interface to be able to change the settings for the PPPOE connection from the modem to work and give access to the router on this case ^_^

    Connect itouch to wifi

    Hi mac42eli,

    You need any router or wireless access point to conenct your ipod touch to the internet or even your home network.

    These days most wired routers will also have the option of wireless. You can check this by entering the routers configuration page. Usually by typing in into the address bar. Or more simply, google you wired router model to check.

    Bluetooth is not currently available for connection in the ipod touch or iphone. The iphone supports it, but for bluetooth headsets. Therefore, regardless of the fact that your mac pro (very nice computer by the way) can support it, your ipod touch can't take advantage of other bluetooth devices.

    I hope this helps.
