Re: Wireless G Router

You should have the cable modem connected to your routers WAN port, using the lan connector cable (RJ45 plug), then using another lan cable from the router number 1 port to your pc's network lan card, making sure the uplink button is not pressed in as this is if you wish to use more than one router on your network. Go to control panel, network connections, right click on your network card>properties, then click the TCP/IP line and again click properties, then select 'obtain ip address automatically'. go to your web browser then type in which should take you into the router settings and look for DHCP clients and make sure DHCP is enabled and save settings. Restart the pc and it should now connect.

I need help getting connection from wired cnnection to wireless connection

In order to accomplish this, you will need a clear understanding of routers and their operation. Refer to the user manual that came with your router for specific instruction on how to configure the router. If you do not understand the operation of routers, it would be best for you to consult a friend or pay a professional technician to set your connection up.

The only light on my router is the router light. No other lights are coming on. I have tried rebooting.

When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:

Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.

Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.

Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).

Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.

Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.

Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.

If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.

I have two desktops and one laptop on my di-524. One desktop no longer connects. The others are fine. Is this a router or adapter problem? I tried a d-link 'stick' but after working for one day, it no...

One desktop and 1 laptop are working that means your router must be working.

1 desktop is not working. Is that wired to the router or wireless ?

If it is wired then check the light on the router, If your computer is connected to port 1 of the router then port 1 light should lit up. If the light is not lit up then check the connection.
If the light is lit up then check the IP address on the computer.

If it is wireless desktop then check the wireless connection.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Intermittent loss of internet cnnection.Very annoying!

Sounds like it might be a bad USB dongle causing the problem. Have you tried another USB port on your computer to rule out a faulty dongle?

The other problem might be a faulty CAT-5 cable. Make sure that the cable is not be stepped on or rolled over by a chair. It is very easy to break the wires inside the cable and still get connections off and on.
