Perhaps it's a TV issue. Have you tried to delete the TV connection in the TV wireless setting and reconfigure? Go to the TV's website and search the issue or troubleshooting.

Hello!
Hopefully if you try the following steps, you might be able to get to the problem.
Troubleshooting Steps

  1. Disconnect the router, and make a call with your telephone. If this does not work, contact your phone company.
  2. Reconnect the router, checking that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure.
  3. Check that the WAN light is green or blinking green. This may take several minutes after connecting or rebooting the router. If the WAN light is off or blinking yellow, contact your ISP.
  4. Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual.
  5. Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter in your computer is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document. 
  6. Power off the router.
  7. Power the router on again.
  8. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described below in reset router.
  9. If you still cannot log on to the router, try to get assistance from Netgear at www.netgear.com.
  10. Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 14.)
  11. If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 15.
  12. If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  13. If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  14. If the smart configuration utility does not find an IP address: 
    1. Power off the router.
    2. Power on the router.
    3. Go back to Step 10.
  15. Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access!
  16. If the page does not display in a minute, you may need to do something called MAC spoofing, which I listed below.
  17. Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the router and computer, in that order. Wait for the router to completely reboot before starting your computer.
  18. If the router's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are greyed out, then settings for a non-dial-up connection are being used.

Reset for routers with reset button on back panel Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

MAC Spoofing
  1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router.If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records.
  2. Disconnect other computers from the router.
  3. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.)
  4. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1.
  5. Type admin for the username, password (or 1234) for the password, and click OK.
  6. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address.
  7. Select Use Computer MAC Address.
  8. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address.
  9. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.

I tried to get everything together to try to help you out.  Hopefully this stuff will get you online!

Try to reconfigure your wireless network on your DI-524.

To access the configuration page of your router by Default type in on the address bar 192.168.0.1. On the login page by default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router

>Click Home
> Click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network first using your wireless computer. If you are connected to your wireless network try connecting to the Internet.

SOURCE: Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

Can I get help with connecting my smart tv to internet as its not working for me thanks a million :)


Hi, commonly these TVs use a network cable for connecting to Internet through a router, another TVs are wireless enabled, in this case you need a WiFi router to get Internet in your smart TV. The process is similar as you connect a computer to Internet but the keyboard of your TV is the remote control, some smart TVs can work with standard wireless keyboards and mices to surf Internet as with a computer.

I have a Belkin router, and a decent internet connection. However, whenever I try to watch video online (e.g. Youtube, or BBC i-player), the connection is very slow, and seems to stop every few seconds. ...


Wait. Play a little (to start the buffer), then pause the video manually for a few minutes (to allow the buffer to fill).

It ain't the router's fault.

Modern browser-plugin streaming client video players (e.g., Silverlight) need some time with your internet connection to learn your best-available resolution and how much to buffer. After a while, it will improve "all by itself."

After several minutes or so of consistent throughput, some players will upgrade your resolution. You'll see the movie suddenly get sharper.

Another tip: Friday evenings and Saturday nights the traffic is heavy and so the internet is slow. Sunday mornings you'll get better throughput.

Belkin router signal not showing up for Wii or Laptop.


If no signal, check router config. Use your
internet browser to look at router's settings.
By default the password on most Belkin routers is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1 Check all you router's wireless settings in case disabled or incorrect. Make sure the laptop's wifi button has been toggled to OFF. Routers do die - esp the lowend ones. New wireless G router = $20 on sale.

Belkin router when connected will send wireless signal but will not allow mother computer to gain access to internet. tried bridging on dsl, and pinging. when i called belkin the @#$%^& told me it...


Assuming your router is set correctly to your modem or the password and username are set correctly in a modem/router, make sure DHCP is enabled in the router, this gives each pc an ip address automatically.

Go to open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure never dial a connection is ticked or greyed out. close IE

go to network connections, right click on your wireless adapter>properties>highlight TCP/IP line>properties and make sure that obtain an ip address automatically is ticked.

Open up internet explorer again and click refresh a few times, it will detect the proxy server then should connect, if not then the router configuration is wrong.

check you cable connections, try to check if you can go online wired to the router if you are connecting wirelessly. You can also bypass the router and connect directly to the modem to make sure its working.

Problem with belkin router


assuming you are connecting wirelessly; you may have to check that the router is allocating ip addresses automatically to your pc's. connect one of your pc's to the router via the RJ45 network cable that was supplied and not wirelessly and type 192.168.2.1 in your internet browser, this will take you into the routers setup menu. Look for a menu refering to 'DHCP' and make sure that this is enabled, then look for the channel number that the router is using (normally 6 or 11) and make a note as if you are still experiencing signal loss, you can get back into the router and change to any channel between these numbers incase you are getting appliances interfering with the signal, save and exit from the router menu. disconnect the cable then go to control panel, network connections and right click on the connection you are using whether it is wired or wireles and click on properties. Look for the line TCP/IP and again click on the line and select properties, then make sure automatically obtain ip address is selected, ok and close window. Restart the pc's and you should have a connection.
