Re: connection problem

It sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's wireless adapters an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser normally by typing and check that DHCP is enabled and look in the menus and see if the transfer speed is set correctly at 54 mbps, the same as your wireless adapters. Also go to your wireless network adapters in network connections in control panel, right click on your wireless connection icon and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok it and close window. The problem with 'pre n' routers is that this setup was released before the alloted 'N' type transfer speeds and required firmware, hence named 'pre n' and can be quite troublesome at times. If you go through the above proceedure they should all connect, but you must also check in my computer, right click then click properties and look at the computer name tab and check that all the pc's are set at the same workgroup name, normally 'workgroup' or 'mshome', otherwise each pc will not be able to see each other.

How to use router without using wifi in belkin n150

This model Belkin wireless router has 4 LAN ports so you can connect a LAN cable from this wireless router to your computer.
I suggest you disable the wireless in the router so no one can access your network and Internet. If you cannot disable the wireless then you can setup WPA2 encryption to secure your wireless network or just remove the aerial off the wireless router.

I can not get my lap top work with the belink router or hook it up help

The most usual problem for wireless connection is the speed differential. What is the rating on each device? Your wireless card and the belkin router should be rated as 'B' or 'G'
G is rated at 54 MBPS and B is rated at 11MBPS. a 'B' rated wireless card can connect to a 'G' rated router but only if the router can be configured to allow clients at a lower speed. Also the wirless security protocols have changed from B to G also creating a connection gap. if a 'B' was designed before certain protocols were in use, this can cause problems as well.

Belkin Pre-N Wifi - Speed problem


When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.

Problem with Pre n Router

54mbps is what the Belkin routers wireless signal transmits at! This cannot be altered and is working correctly regardless of other wireless card speeds.

Router down when copy files

Check in your routers settings via your browser that the file transfer speed is no higher than 54 mbps, as it may be set at 108 mbps or 125 mbps as a 'g' type router should be, but your wireless network adapters can only work at 54 mbps and are crashing the transfers.

In my new router getting less speed in wireless connection than when connected with a cable.

The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet. These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps. If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps. Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.

What is the difference between 802.11g and 54g?

54g implements the latest draft of the IEEE 802.11g specification. The two primary distinctions between 54g and 802.11g are: 1) 54g is designed to enable 54 Mbps connectivity. The 802.11g draft specification makes 54 Mbps connectivity optional, and simply requires up to 24 Mbps connectivity to comply with the specification. 2) 54g products are based on the same wireless LAN chipset, which means they are interoperable. Because the standard is not final, it is not yet possible to test for 802.11g interoperability.
