Re: Belkin N Wireless Router shutting down modem
Please make sure of the following
- You have authentication setup in your router (WEP, WAP, WAP2). This will ensure that you are not being targeted by malicious people
- Your power should be stable for both the modem and the router. Try to put both of them on a surge protector to prevent energy spikes that may restart your devices
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.
- Provide details, support with references or personal experience.

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards and wireless adapters in all the laptops/computers needs tobe configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSLor cable modem.
From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.
No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.
Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".
You will need to assign a different ip address to the modem - Iam assuming that both the router & modem are using the same ipaddress 192.168.1.1? If that is the case, then assign 192.168.1.2 tothe modem.
If you are connected straight from the modem, your router will not have internet access, only if your modem is connected to the router you will be able to go online wireless. connect your modem to the router nad router to the desktop, so that you can access both wired and wireless connection
Check your device to see if it is due for a firmware upgrade. Esp. depending on your ISP, log into your device that you have from your ISP ( whether dsl modem, cable modem, etc.) and then follow whatever procedure it needs to determine your current firmware version.
As you ave the modem in bridge mode and also it works ine with wired connection just follow the instruction below for wireless
1.Login in to the router - > wireless settings
2.Configure your wireless using SSID and WEP and save settings
3.Laptop : Using windows wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,WEP as configured in the router(view available wireless network in wireless properties)
(by default OEM wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in branded pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)
14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seq..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.
What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?
Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
