Seeing as your other computers seem to work well I doubt it is your router that is at fault

I would start by checking all the wireless and network settings on the machine that is having problems.

I would turn off "wireless zero config" from the administrative tools / services first of all.

Then I would check the TCP/IP properties to ensure that "find ip address automatically" and " find dns servers automaticaly" are ticked.

As far as the problem starting since you went to VOIP it is possible but unlikely that that is the cause, and as far as getting booted when the phone rings that is for sure a cable company issue and certainly one you should follow up on as it sounds like a poor installation or faulty equipment (hope you are not a rogers or shaw customer as that would be your problem with the booting right there)

The belkin rounter of my dad's laptop was installed without password setting. i tried to set it up on configuration page. i was notified that the rounter will restart again itself...thereafter...

If you can still remember the password that you entered on the configuration page, follow the steps below:
1. In the lower right corner of your screen (near the time and date), right click on the wireless network connection icon, then select view available wireless networks. Or, if your wireless adapter has its own wireless utility, you should see that in the lower right corner of your screen.
2. You should see the router's wireless network name (SSID). By default, the SSID is "belkin54g". Select the SSID and it will prompt you for the network key.
3. The network key is the password that you entered on the router configuration page.

If you cannot remember the password that you entered, follow the steps below.
a. Connect your computer to the router using an ethernet cable.
b. Access the setup page by typing in the address bar.
c. Go to Wireless -> Security. Copy the network key.
d. Then follow steps 1-4 above.

For the MAC computer:
1. From the Airport menu, select the SSID.
4. When asked for a password, enter the network key that you entered on the router.

I hope this helps!

Make sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is not able to go online through the modem then you will need to call ISP first.

How do I manage my network using a d link dir 655 wirless router, without buying network magic?

You can open a web-broswer such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (

You may also connect using the NetBIOS name int the address bar (http://dlinkrouter).

Select Admin from the drop-down menu and then enter your password. Leave the password blank by default. Type in the graphical authentication code (if you cannot read it, click Regenerate).

You may click Setup Wizard to quickly configure your router.
If you want to enter your settings without running the wizard, click Manual Configuration.

In your rounter you can see who is connecting to your network and also block computers/devices from using your network.

Hope that helps.

On my wirless rounter i have every light on accept for my wirless light, could you please tell me what i'm during wrong

Hello mate,
you will need to connect your computer via Ethernet cable to your router and then access to the router web configuration page and check if the wireless is enabled.
If it's disabled, it's a good news. you will only need to enable it and it will start working.
if it's enabled, in this case there are two possibilities: 1. the wireless is working and it's only the light which is not working, you can verifiy that by scanning wireless available from your pc and see if your router appears in this list.
2. the wireless function is brooken: in this case, you can try to do a reset factory, but this doesn't help you will need to contact your reseller and i hope that the router is still under warranty because it will need a repair or exchange.
Best Regards,
