Question about Belkin (F5D7231UK4) Wireless Router

2 Answers

Wont connect to the internet

I plugged in my Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless G Router, 54 mbps, 802.11g, and followed the steps to the letter, removing my old dial-up modem and connecting Belkin. The last step requires me to connect to the internet and register the product, but whenever I open internet explorer, the dial-up connection window pops up, but won't connect, seeing as the old modem is no longer connected. The Belkin Router has also been added as a LAN connection, but I have no idea if this means something, or even how to connect using the LAN connection

Re: Wont connect to the internet

Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE. Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.

Re: Wont connect to the internet

You need to remove the Dial-up connection, assuming you aren't going to use it anymore. To do this, open control panel and then go to internet options. Click the connections tab. Select your dial-up connection and click remove. Then click Setup at the top to setup your new internet connection. This will open the New Connection Wizard. Select "Connect to the internet", click next, "Set up my connection manually", next, "Connect using a broadband cnection that is always on", next, finish. Your internet should work now. If it dosen't, call your ISP.

My Zhone 1518-A1 modem-router keeps loosing internet connection although wifi connected. Is it normal that the internet led is blinking?


Its normal for the internet light to blink, it means that its having an activity.

Try accessing the modem GUI (graphic users interface) and then change the WEP key or security key , if the modem-router is not password protected then just reset it.

You can also change the power values on it

Hope this helps

I have a Zhone ADSL2+ 4 Port Wireless Bridge/Router, model number 1518-A1-UK-0MA. it as working perfectly until one day when i turned it ON, only the ADSL LED is lit, no other LEDs are on, nor the power...

Please use the following steps:
1. Remove the router and connect it directly from the pc to the modem.
2. Power cycle: turn the modem off and then the computer for 30 seconds, then turn them both back on, modem first.
3. Check you internet connection to see if it working.
4. If it working, connect the router back up. If it not working contact your ISP for dsl support.
5. Once the router is connected, release/renew the ip address. Go to the dos command type ipconfig/release press enter. Then type ipconfig/renew. Check your ip address, you shouldn't get an ip address starting with 169. If you do, this mean you have a problem with the router getting an ip address.
6. Check you internet connection after the release/renew

Router not hooked up properly??

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Internet connection frequently drops, don't know why. Still connected to router, though not getting internet. Unplugging wireless adapter and plugging it back in fixes the problem...temporarily.


IF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION DROPS, try the following troubleshooting steps
1) connect Modem-Router-Computer
2) Open router UI (
3) User name : admin , Password: password
4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select Wireless settings (under Setup)
5) SSID: (user defined)
Channnel : 11 or 6
mode : upto 54 mbps or 150 mbps
Security : WPA-PSK (TKIP)
PASSPHRASE : (user defined)
Click apply
This should resolve the problem.

If the problem still persists u can try upgrading the drivers of the wireless USB adapter.

D-link wireless internet

It is always a good thing to start the different peripherals in an order. First, you start your modem. Wait 30 seconds. Then, start the router; wait another 30 seconds; then the computer.
