You don't setup. It is the same as the DHCP server on the router (ipconfig /all).

Normally you really don't use DNS at home. It is for resolving an IP to a name (like on the web). Belkin web interface also shows the ISP WAN DNS server, but again not really used. Even if you have a multi-pc network, the name is handled by DHCP and Windows.

Feel free to post back if I misunderstood the need or problem.

SOURCE: Belkin Router doesn't connect to internet

GUYS, omg this is so damn unbelievable. I've searched EVERYWHERE on the internet until some genius told me that the reason why I couldn't get internet even though I connected to the router was because of the stupid Norton Internet Security Firewall that was still in use after uninstalling. After I downloaded Norton Removal Tool, EVERYTHING was back to normal. I'm NEVER going to use Norton again, I don't care how much they have improved I was using 2008 and it caused me so much trouble. I recommend everyone out there to not use Norton as well. People out there are saying that Norton is a virus itself in that it is VERY hard to uninstall.

SOURCE: problems with my Belkin N1 router since we have 1 PC on Vista

to solve this problem you need to set up static IPs on your LAN clients. Whether your SIP provides you with a static IP or not makes no diffrence you can still assign one to each machine on your network and that should solve the problem.

SOURCE: belkin wireless G+ MIMO ADSL2 + modem routerF5D9630

You need to find out what settings need to be changed in the router to communicate to the new modem. Etisalat should have some type of instructions on how to configure it...Does the IP address get obtained automatically or is it manually configured. Does the modem require a password. Did they replace the modem or just upgrade the system? You may just ahve to reset the modem and router to get reconnection. Most routers use the IP address of or to get to the router settings control panel. Just enter one of these addresses on internet explorer and a screen should ask for a password. The default password is usually ADMIN but consult the routers manual for instructions. Once you are in the router control manual you can configure the router to work with the new system.

SOURCE: my belkin router won't connect to my computer

Just sharing this;

Hook the internet connection again on the computer directly to its LAN port like the way it is first connected. Then activated the net connection, double the double monitor icon on the right side, bottom side of your monitor. Then click status, support, details you will see the net details of your net.

Then reconnect the system back where the router is connected on the system, then use your the DNS settings manually on the router. By getting to web page utility setup of the router.

Hope this helps.

Problem with wireless internet connection. Belkin. It only connects for 2mn and then dies...

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

Make sure that the wireless SSID broadcast is enabled.
