Belkin wireless router not assigning IPs for wireless clients
My router has been working fine for 3 years..
2 days ago, wireless clients are unable to obtain an IP address, the pool is 192.168.2.2-9 and instead is assigning 169.254.14.3, of course not valid.
RJ45 connected clients are fine, they get .2 and .3
No firmware updates have been available for a while, nothing changed, tried rebooting/reset router, play around with wep 24, mac filtering etc...same... did the router go south???
It's a Belkin Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router (no model number)

Re: belkin wireless router not assigning IPs for wireless...
Some routers start handing out DHCP wireless IP's at 192.168.2.100. Try setting the upper limit at .110. If the router is found in a site survey (view wireless networks) but cannot connect, the limitation would be why.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

u said u have static IP for ur internet. if these IP's are already assigned in ur computer, ur computer will not be able to accept an IP from the router. so u 1st u need to remove the IP's that are already assigned in the computer's LAN properties. keep the option as"obtain an IP address automatically". then u should be able to open the router set up page using 192.168.2.1
I'm afraid you are right. On this router, you can only enable or disable DHCP in general, but not set the range used for DHCP.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...
You could try to set your static IP's in the upper range (192.168.2.254 and down) because DHCP usually starts at the bottom range (192.168.2.2 and up). I know this is not an ideal solution, but it might work for you depending on the number of clients you have.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
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.
From the menu on the left, select Wireless, then Encryption.
You should be able to change the settings there.
As im sure your aware, you will have to reconfigure the other 5 clients to use WPA after doing this. I would recommend having a least on client connected by ethernet to the router so that if changes make the wireless inaccessable, you can still access the routers configuration.
Here are the steps to hopefully get you reconnected...
SymptomNot able to connect to the router/AP wirelessly, or intermittent wireless connection.
ResolutionTo address this issue, follow the steps below: Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
1. Try and uninstall the Belkin client software
2. Check to see if the WZCSVC service is running
You can check this by issuing the following command:
a) net start
b) sc query wzcsvc
Both command should list some info about WZCSVC (Wireless Zero
Configuration) if it is running.
3. If your wireless card is installed successfully, you should see a
antenna-type icon in the system tray.
If not, you need to install the drivers for the card manually. Check
the Belkin CD for drivers.
4. If you can see your new router's SSID (wireless name) then you should be
able to see it as a non-admin as well.
5. Failing all of this, retry the Belkin client software and its
documentation for indication on non-admin issues or ways to use the above
mentioned Windows wireless client.
As you ave the modem in bridge mode and also it works ine with wired connection just follow the instruction below for wireless
1.Login in to the router - > wireless settings
2.Configure your wireless using SSID and WEP and save settings
3.Laptop : Using windows wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,WEP as configured in the router(view available wireless network in wireless properties)
(by default OEM wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in branded pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)
14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seq..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
1. Make sure that wireless settings are properly synchronized. >> ssid/security key. 2. Check your computers wireless connection status > Make sure that it is set to "obtain ip address automatically) 3. If still not working if computer is set to obtain ip automatically, try assigning static ip on wireless pc > You need to know your router's ip address and dns 4. Disable firewall on wireless pc.
