Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

1 Answer

Cannot connect other devices to my router

I have a Belkin Wireless N router and it is hooked to my pc. It allows my PS3 to work fine but it won't let me connect my IPod touch, a laptop, or and IPhone. I have set up a password and it keeps saying it's incorrect but it's not. I have also tried to reset the router. And I have tried the encryption code, none of it works.

You reset it to open, no encryption and it still didn't work? HMMM. You are able to get your PS3 online? but can't connect your laptop and desktop? Are you hard wiring the desktop to the router? or are you trying to connect it wirelessly? If you are configuring your router with either the laptop or desktop, make sure the IP settings on your connection manager are set to the correct domain under Local Area Connection Properties, like 192.168.1.226, or something similar. Login to the router with your admin credentials. Make sure in your configuration (as instructed in your manual) that you have the router time set correctly so the lease time for your devices aren't expired. Apply settings. After exiting your router configuration screen, go back to your connections manager, either wireless connection, or ethernet adapter in your network connections folder, and under the General tab of the Local Area Connection Properties, change the properties of your TCP/IP client back to "Obtain an IP Address Automatically." Click "Close" and your computer should show "Connected."

Ive connected my belkin device to may desktop. Now im trying to connect my ipad to my modem or the belkin..but getting no where lol Ipad finds the modem but say 'unable to join the network'. Any ideas...


which belkin device have you connected to your desktop? The ipad will be looking for a wireless network to connect to. So you will need a wireless router to allow it to connect, also the modems ethernet cable needs to plugged into the wireless router and IF you have the modem connected directly to the pc to allow it to connect to the internet , then you need to connect a lead FROM the router to the PC

I have Belkin N150 Wireless Router installed. I can connect my laptop to it. When I tried my PS3 and I pod Touch and enter the same password but still it can't connect..guys, help me please..tnx


You have to allow these device to connect via MAC address ( Media Access Control) or set an IP.
This is done in the router. Check your router instructions for game settings.
Setting the router firewall game allowance or device is possibly where you are have an issue.

How do I connect the Belkin F5D8236 N+ router to my PS3 so that I could recognize a external drive that is plugged into the USB on the router? I can connect the PS3 to the network but the drive isn't...


You cannot install the Belkin CD on PS3, you can access your external HDD only on wired or wireless devices that has operating systems like Windows or MAC. With PS3, we can play on the network or stream videos.

My belkin router won;t connect to my laptop, wii, ds or dsi


Did all these devices use wireless? Or were they plugged into it?

The router may have reset itself so you might have to sign in to the router and setup the wireless again.

The PC that is hooked via ethernet, did it use the router wirelessly at all?

Try signing into the router and check the wireless security key settings etc. Reset it if you have to type in a new key and try testing the settings with one of your wireless devices to see if it works. Remember to have the device on the same key/index/channel and the same security type as is set on the router.

Belkin G Wireless Router Connection problem


Sounds like a faulty router or issue with the firmware if it is unaccesible, your best solution is to factory reset the device and try again.

Connection lasts about 5 minutes


Basically if you do a connection test on the ps3 and it comes back as NAT3 then you will have problems. You need to forward some of the ports of your modem to get to NAT2. You will need to assign static ip addresses to your PS3s so that you can set up port forwarding
You may have interference from a nearby cordless phone (keep these away from router), could be interference from neighbor, try changing channel you use on wireless router.
Some people have reported success just by turning off SSID broadcast in the wireless router.

Connecting to secure network


when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
