Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Router loses power.

The router just doesn't stay on. When I unplug the power source at the back of the unit and plug it back in to reset it, the lights come on for about 10 seconds then the unit just dies again. Is it time to get a replacement from Belkin?

Need the security key password for wireless linksys WRT54G router.mine don't work


The default username and password are as follows:

username: (leave blank)
password: admin

If that doesn't work, you can factory restore the router by doing the following:

1. Unplug the router
2. Hold in the reset button for 30 seconds
3. Plug the router back in and continue holding in the reset button for another 30 seconds

Note that this will reset all of your router's settings to default and you will lose any of the stored settings you have, but it will reset the password to the default I listed above. Hope this helps!

For the last two days the router constantly drops Internet access. I use the pin hole to get it back up but it loses it again later.


Try unplugging the router for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in. This will allow the router to reset its connections and should improve its performance. Also, try relocating the router to a more central location and pointing the antenna away from walls or other sources of interference.
Please let me know how you make out.

Netgear software, picks up wireless network then loses connection moments later


Netgear generally functions well. You may simply need to adjust the location of the router. Check the signal strength when you do have a signal. You may be losing a signal intermittently because the signal is weak. If your signal is "good" or better and the signal is lost without apparent reason, there could be a malfunction with the router itself. Check the router when the signal is lost and ensure the power light is on and the connection light is on.

If your signal is weak and you lose it intermittently, adjust the location of the router

If your signal is strong and you lose it intermittently, you may be experiencing a connection problem at the source or the power may be cutting out at the modem. The more likely answer is the source signal interruption. It is rare for a power supply to go bad in those.

Check the source connection INTO the router.

You can also reset the router. You'll want to unplug everything. Unplug the power supply from the wall AND from the modem and leave it unplugged for at least 2 minutes. There may also be a very small recessed reset button (the kind that you need to use the end of a paperclip to press). Press and hold that for 10-30 seconds to reset while it's still plugged in.

When you plug everything back in, plug the power in first (to the wall and modem), then connect the source cable. Wait until you have a signal confirmation light, then try to connect with your computer.

Last but not least, the connection problem could be with your computer. Try pluging directly into the source if possible and see how that works. Then try just moving close to the wireless modem and see how the signal strength is and if you lose the signal the same way. If there is a switch on your computer to turn on the wireless feature, make sure it's all the way on. Sometimes these are kind of stuck between 'on' and 'off' and that can cause problems.

I hope one of these suggestions helps you!

The ''wireless'' light on my wireless router is flashing amber


What have you tried so far?
1. You can unplug the power cord of your modem on the back of the modem.
2. Unplug the power cord on the back of your router
3. Unplug the ethernet cable at the back of your modem
4. Unplug all the ethernet cable at the back of your router
5. Wait for 2 minutes then plug the power cord back into your modem and the ethernet cable
6. Wait for 2 minutes again then plug the power cord back into your router and the ethernet cable
7. Try to reconnect
(Note: Resetting your router will restore to factory default)
8. If not successful, try resetting the router. While the power cord is plugged at the back of your router press the reset button for 15 seconds, unplug the power cord of your router and press the reset button again for 15 seconds then plug the power cord back into your router and press the reset button for 15 seconds. (after resetting reconfigure your router) Try to connect.

9. If not successful, try to upgrade the firmware

I have a linksys router befw11s4 ver4. All the lghts are on on the front of it.Does that mean something?When I connect it to my pc,It thinks the cables are unplugged.I have tested all the cables.They are...


First thing to try is to Unplug the Router from the power source for 10 seconds then plug it back in. If all lights continue to stay on you can try reseting it by holding a paperclip in the small hole in the back for 10 seconds and then letting it go. this will reset the unit to its factory default settings like you purchased new from the box.
You will need to re setup the unit. the default IP address will be 192.168.1.1 and the default password is admin
