Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Router works with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista

Router works fine with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista when I try to see the network. Using wired only, turned off wireless. Can see the Vista machine and shares from the Ubuntu machine but total lockup when trying to browse the network from Vista home premium. Neither machine can see the network after that, no internet access. Disconnect the Ubuntu and Vista still crashes the router. I can get into the router home page for setup but can't browse to the network without locking up (lights stay on but no access from either machine). Have to power down the router AND PC's to reset, router says no newer firmware update available.

    Network properties (tcp/ip) are correct, near as I can determine. Internet access is ok but it still freezes when I try to view the network map. Phonepower internet telephone adapter/router is in front of it, then the cable modem.

    Connected directly to my Phonepower router there is no problem, full access to internet and can't break it, but only one port.

Try:
sudo route add default gw ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS
Replace ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS with the address of your network router. If you don't know what this is, do the following in Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> cmd.exe
ipconfig
(look for "Default Gateway", and write down the four numbers - usually something like 192.168.1.254 - that's what you should use for "ROUTER.IP.ADDRESS" above).

This will fix it for your current session - to make it permanent, open up the network configuration window in Ubuntu, and set this as your gateway under "IPv4 settings" (or similar).

How to remove Ubuntu from a Vista dual-boot config

On my new PC I wanted (still want) to have toa go with Linux. I chose to experiment with Ubuntu. I downloaded thedesktop CD, burned it, freed up some disk space (inside Vista) andloaded up Ubuntu from the CD. After some experimenting I figured outhow to install Ubuntu in the empty disk space and it all worked fine(GRUB took over my booting (recognized Vista automatically!) and Ubuntuloaded up fine).

Then I tried to install my GPU drivers andeverything went wrong.. For some reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot anymore(failed to load X-Server or something). I was completely lost andwanted to remove Ubuntu.

This is where things start to get really messy!

Ifyou simply remove the Ubuntu partition, GRUB (Linux boot loader) willstill be on your PC (in control). It will trip out, as the Ubuntupartition will be removed.. Bad thing!

So you need to restore your Master Boot Record (MBR) for Vista (so that Vista will handle the booting, not GRUB).

Googleonly pointed me to sites that explained how to REMOVE VISTA, whichisn't what I wanted. Many sites talked about the 'fixmbr' command, butthis is really only available in Windows XP.

So how do you restore your MBR for Windows Vista?

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe /FixMbr, and then press ENTER.

That'sit. Now when you reboot your PC, Vista will load automatically... Youcan now safely boot using your Ubuntu desktop CD, to use the built inGnome Partition Manager to remove your Ubuntu partition!
