The reset button is not actually visable to those that need glasses or in poor lighting. Most likely there is a hole the size of a ink pen head. That is your reset button. stick a small object (ink pen head, toothpick... ect...) in hole for 10 seconds to reset.

Hi. I had this same problem about six months ago.

There is a RESET button somewhere on the console, i don't remember exactly where. If you plug it in and hit the reset button, it should boot up. Unfortunately, you'll have to set up the network again.

Good Luck!

We are no longer getting wireless internet from the router. I try to follow the directions on the bottom of the router, but I have not even found where to type the word"admin." Please help if...


On the back of your router there will be 5 ethernet ports. At least one will contain a wire going to your router. Unplug this wire, and plug it into one of the remaining 4 ports, doesn't matter which.
Now unplug the other end of the wire from your router, to your computer. Turn the wireless off on your computer, and go to http://192.168.1.1. It will prompt you to enter in the admin password here.
If this does not work, unplug the router and hold the "Reset" button on the back with a pencil for 30 seconds.

Internet connection failed


Well the first thing to do is try to isolate the problem. Before we start make sure the 1st PC will give the same network cable unplugged error if it too is unplugged. Once that is done start by unplugging the network cables from the PCs and switch them. Does the problem stay with the 2nd PC or does it move to the 1st? If it stays with the 2nd PC then the problem is with the PC network card or more likely its configuration. The network card should be configured exactly as the 1st one, probably to obtain the IP and DNS addresses automatically. If you need help with this let us know the operating system you are using. If the problem moves to the 1st PC that indicates the problem is with the cable and/or the router. Now switch the cables at the router end, if the problem stays on the 1st PC then that network cable is your problem. It could be a ?cross-over cable or simply damaged. If it doesn?t move then the problem would be in your router. Either that router port is bad (try using another port) or the one port that works is configured uniquely. You?ll need to take a look at how your router ports are configured and look for the differences. Let us know what you find and we?ll go from there.

We moved and when everything was hooked up i cant get a connection from my linksys wireless router to my laptop


Ok - hook the power to the Linksys - then RESET - the folded out paper clip will work. Once RESET - hook it up to your ISP provided MODEM [ You must have this service to get on the web] now unplug the Modem provided by your ISP or provider - and unplug the router.
WAIT
15 seconds - then
hook up the MODEM from the provider - then hook up the router - then restart the laptop - if wired it will need to be plugged in - if wireless - run your 'search for a wireless signal and you should have it.

Thanks

Laptop not connecteding to internet


There is a reset button on the back I think on this model. This will reset it to factory default. You don't need drivers for this to work. What kind of internet access do you want to hook this to? Or do you want to use it for lan use only?

Restarting,


Hi Brightside
A couple of things you could try.
1) Switch the router off at the mains power socket or disconnect it. Then leave it off for 5 minutes before reconnecting it. This can sometimes reset things and may clear the problem.
2) Make sure that the connections to and from the router are secure. Unplug them and plug them back in again.
3) Make sure that the telephone line is not faulty and has not developed an internittent adsl connection. You may need the phone company to test it for you.
4) Sometimes connection cables can pick up noise from other equipment, especially if in close proximity to mains wiring. This can cause problems. Try moving the connection cables to a different position. Sometimes only a few inches is enough. Laptop power units for exmple, can be a real source of noise.
Good luck

All the wrong lights are on!


Hi Starfish,

Try unplugging the Dlink, wait 2 min, and plug it back in. If that work, on the back is a small hole, marked RESET. Using a pencil, or straightne out a large paperclip, press that the button inside gently. Hold it for 30 sec. Release and unplug the unit. Shut down the whole network. "Starting from the wall", power up the modem, wait 2 min, power up the Dlink, and power up your machine. Your Dlink should be at default now. Remember to reset you security, change the password, etc.
I have had to do this several times, sometimes unplugging the power, and plugging it back while holding the button. (Got 3 hand?) Also, there as one firmware update, which had a mistake, that set the router IP to 102.168.1.1, rather than 192.168.0.1.
Good luck!

I have a dlink wireless router di 624 air plus xtreme g.


Are you operating the laptop with the wireless on and a cable too? You should probably choose one or the other and not both at the same time.

If you are only operating both computers on a wire then --

Assuming all cables are completely plugged in securely

If the problem is intermittent you may need to use your laptop in a normal fashion -- to see if any movement causes the disconnection. If there is a internottently defective cable when it is in your desktop it may fail less frequently, Meaning, it may work more consistenly because your desktop does not get moved around. (This last instance may avoid detection in this testing process)

Try swapping the laptop's cable with your desktop computer's cable at the computer end and see of the problem moves.

If it does not move you may have a problem with the ethernet port on the laptop -- end of test.

If the problem does not appear -- you may not have an issue or you may have a defective cable probably attached to the desktop now as noted above failing more infrequently so you have not observed it yet.

If it moves you may have either a bad cable or a bad router port -- continue test.

To determine which swap the cable's on the router end this time between the two attached ports (use the same ports with the opposite cable in each).

If the problem moves again it is the router port -- try switching the cable of the non-working machine to a new router port.

If the problem stays put is probably a defective cable. It will probably be easiest to replace the cable.

I hope this helps.

Belkin F6d3230-4 No internet


Since this has happened to you in the past, my first suggestion would be to purchase another router.. I would recommend moving to a Linksys Brand (made by Cisco), since I believe it is a much better grade consumer router...

But, you might try resetting it back to its original configuration by pressing the 'reset' button for more than 30 seconds, then plugging it back into the LAN..

Another thing you could try is to install updated Firmware for the router... Firmware is usually available from the manufacture's site...

That being said, I will say that I have had issues with Belkin's in the past, and no longer suggest them to my customers.
