Opening router port 5001 of Belkin F5D7230-4

I have a MacBook Pro.  I have been trying to access SlingPlayer on my computer.  I called SlingBox tech support.  They ran their diagnostics and said I needed to call Belkin and have them open port 5001 on the router. I have spent at least 3 hours on the phone with them with absolute  no success.  I tried putting 192.168.1.1 in the web address with no luck.  Please help me.  I have an elderly mother (103) who likes to watch Fox News all day and SlingPlayer was going to make it where I could watch my programs .

You need to find out your "Default Gateway", which will be the ip address of your router. To do this go to start, then run and type in cmd... you will then get a black window open... in that window type in "ipconfig".... you will then get a host of information about your network... somewhere on this screen towards the top you will see the address of you "Default Gateway" - you need to then type this into your web browser to access your route config pages...

I have a belkin n modem router and it keeps kicking the xbox off line. is it the xbox live or my new router


it is the problem with router....the firewall built-in in the router will not allow certain gaming devices to go online...for this purpose you need to forward certain ports in the belkin router...for the list of port numbers to be forwarded, contact xbox vendor....once you got those port numbers, you can call 24x7 toll free belkin tech support(1800-2-235546)(1800-2-belkin) and ask them to assist u to forward ports... or you can can connect a computer to one of the wired ports(1 to 4) and open internet explorer and type 192.168.2.1 in address bar and hit "enter key". you ll see belkin router setup page...on the left side you ll find "virtual servers"...open that link(if it asks password, leave it blank and click submit) fill the IP address of your xbox in that form and type the port numbers and select appropriate (tcp/udp)... also click on"firewall" in left and disable it.... also click on DMZ in left and type your xbox ip address there and enable it... thats it.... you are done with that...

I am trying to connect a slingbox to my home network, but my network cant find the slingbox, do you have any ideas?


Depends on how the Slingbox is configured. It should be set up to use DHCP and try to get an IP from your router, either by wireless or by hardwired ethernet.

I would help if you could details how your network is configured.

Cheers,
Ripface.

I have a macbook pro and I am having problem connecting wirelessly to a Belkin Wireless Router N. None of my roommates have problem connecting and I can connect wirelessly everywhere else on campus but not...


Most hotspots are using b/g protocol for the widest compatibility with other hardware. Your macbook pro may not be able to connect tot he Belkin router if it's only broadcasting the N protocol. First verify which protocol the Belkin router is using. If it's broadcasting N, try changing it to use b/g and see if you can connect. I seem to recall that the earlier macbooks needed an update to be N compatible.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.

If the game you'er playing on PSP requires opening a certain port then access the setup page of the router by going to 192.168.2.1. Go to and place the port number of the game and enter the IP address of your PS3. You may also set the PS3 to DMZ if you know the IP address of your PS3.

Or call the toll-free Supportrix Tech Support at 1-877-787-8749 and give "support call" as promo code for one free technical support call.

Wireless router


Yes I can help you... Do you know how to access the routers programming? If not open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.10.1 or 192.168.1.1 By default the username is
admin and the password is motorola. Now you see a menu says Motorola broadband wireless router... Click Networking you should find all the relevant information your looking for in there look for the tab that says Port Triggering. SlingBox requires you to forward the 5001 ports. So name the port trigger SlingBox1 make sure its enabled and set TCP incoming to 5001-5001 Another one should pop up name it Slingbox2 set to UDP ports incoming 5001-5001 and that should be it. Now click the ADD button and then click APPLY at the bottom of page.
