Question about Belkin (F5D72304F5D7000) Router

1 Answer

Network I tried to hook my computer to a friends's network so I can use the wireless internet. I got the computers networked just fine, however when I did that both the computers lost internet connectivity. I tried to resolve the problem by typing in the ip address into internet exploer but it was asking for a password. I think the password may have got messed up or reset some how. He says he knows his password but even then it will not let him connect. The internet is working fine when you plug in directly to the router. For some reason we can not get the wireless to worth with the internet.

Re: network

As long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected. Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection. Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.

Have you got in to configure it. In the address put if a username and password haven't been set up leave username blank and put admin for the password. There might be a setting wrong. The routers IP never changes. the router supplies you computer with an IP. After hooking it up you could try to enter ipconfig in to the run prompt. Then ipconfig\release then ipconfig\renew. see if that helps.

SOURCE: router will not receive an ip address. have to

You need to hard reset the router first by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 sec. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power to the router first then the modem. Make sure the modem is plugged in to the Internet/WAN port and your PC to port 1 of the router. After 1 min power on the modem first then wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. If you still you don't have internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Open the router's Setup Page and look for MAC Address Clone feature, enable it and save. Perform a power cycle again. That should do it.

Cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

Trying to set up a second computer for wireless

What wireless mode is you router operating in? Does it support the cards on your other systems?

Do you have mac address control enabled?

Try disabling security temporarily to see if you can connect; your wireless connection may not be setup to authenticate properly.

Used to have 2 computers working with our wireless router. One was directly hooked up with an ethernet cable, the other was wireless. I'm now trying to have two computers hooked up wireless from network...

Perhaps you turned on MAC address filtering in your router's wireless security settings? It's a pretty good security measure for not allowing unwanted visitors to try hooking up to your wireless internet connection, so it might have been recommended.
Go to your router's configuration and see if MAC filtering is turned on. If it is, you have to add your second computer's wireless card MAC address to the "allowed" list.
Your card's MAC address is sometimes written on it, but it's simpler to go to command prompt and type "ipconfig /all", which will show you details about all the network devices present in the system. Find the wireless card and note the MAC (physical) address. Note: in windows the address has a "-" dash as a separator, whereas normally a ":" colon is used as a separator and this is usually the way you have to enter it.

Internet Connection Problem on One Computer

By any chance, are you trying to use something other than Windows to manage the wireless adapter? If you are, remove it.

Now, Click on Start, right click on Network highlight properties, and click on manage network connections on the Tasks menu.
Your two options will be the icons for your LAN and Wireless Network. Is it enabled and without red or yellow marks? It could be disable, it could be not connected and you can't view wireless networks because the switch is off, or it may just nut see your unsecure network (unlikely).

If the above is clear, right click on the wireless and highlight Properties and left click so it brings up the Networking tab. Highlight IPv4 and click on Properties. Make sure the Obtain dots are ticked. That should work, since you are running unsecured.
If it already is, check the red X or if it isn't click OK and close down the box.

Now, back to where your Wireless card is showing, right click it and you have Disable, Connect/Disconnect, Status, Diagnose etc.

If you're still Disconnected but not Disabled, click on Connect/Disconnect. Does it show your wireless network?

By this time, it should. If it doesn't post back. The other possibility is that you take your computer to a wireless internet cafe, McDonalds, Panera Bread, or motel with WiFi and test it there.

Second computer cant connet through the router..

You must reconfigure the wireless settings on the wireless computer. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Now you must delete all the prefered wireless network profile there. If they are all deleted, click on ADD > Click Add A Network in range of this computer > Select the signal from your router and connect. If it asks you for a network key, you should know that, otherwise, contact your router provider to determine what your network key is. That should solve it.
