Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I'm using a cable modem and it used to be plugged into my wirless router, then I had an ethernet cable running from the router into my PC's (I have 2 connected via cables, laptop via wireless). Now my router is not letting me connect to the internet on either PC, but it seems my home network is still running. The "connected" light just flashes when I think it should be on constantly and the WLAN light flickers like it should do. I've looked at everything on the setup menu and can't see anythings changed, in the internet status it says "not connected", I've even restored factory defaults and it's still not working. The only way I can get online is to plug my modem directly into one of my computers.
Anyone got any idea's as to why it's not working?
It's not unheard of for a router to fail. When you connected the computer to the Modem, did you use the same cable that was connected to the router? Does your internet connection require a username and password? If so, is that configured in your modem, or the router? If not in the modem it must be the router.

SOURCE: Status and WLAN lights
First thing to do here is to reset the router, to reset it Press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while the power is ON then fater that just again the setup of the router to your computer to reconfifgure it back and hopefully everything will be back to normal....

Does your computer say Network cable unplugged?
If the wlan light is off, it means that your computer is not being detected by your router. You can try unplugging and replugging the ethernet cable at the back of the computer. Make sure that you hear a 'click' when you plug it back in to make sure tha it is properly seated. Check also the light on the wan port (desktops usually have lights..not sure about laptops though).
Do the same process with the ethernet cable but now from the other end--the one connected to the modem/router. if your modem/router have other ports on it, try to connect it to other ports as well. If you're wan light is still off, try using a different ethernet cable.
what's wrong with your wireless access? i can't read it from the title.

This can be a problem with the firmware of the router, so the first thing that you can do to correct this problem is to do a firmware upgrade on the router and that should correct the problem......

Testimonial: "it certainly seems faster, even for the wireless machine. Thanks!!!"
Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:
Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.
On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)
Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.
Do this on each PC and Laptop.
That should be it or darned near close.
