Question about Belkin Computers & Internet
Belkin G+ Wireless Router (F5D9231-4 v2) intermittent power up problem with the modem connection. We power down both the modem and the router with a surge strip. Every couple days when we power up, the modem comes up fine and the router's lights come up but the modem light on the router blinks red (meaning no connection). I solved it once by disconnecting the power to both and replugging the modem, waiting til all lights were ''on'' and then plugging the router power in. The next day this didn't work and I had to power all off, unplug both from the power strip; and reset the router. I had tried every combination to get to that last resort.
I still have 20 days to return the router but would prefer to problem solve first.
I would first recommend not powering down the router and modem. Leave them always powered on. The router should be acting as a firewall so that your computer can't be "seen", and make sure you have an antivirus program and run regular scans. You can just power down your pc if you're still worried about somebody getting into your pc. Now that you're protected, power up the modem and wait a couple minutes until all lights are stable. If in doubt as to how long, wait 5 minutes. Then power up your router. After a couple minutes, you should be good to go. Leave both powered on at all times to see if this fixes it.
If you continue to experience problems, I'd recommend updating the firmware. There should be a setting in the router to update the firmware, or you can go to Belkins website and download the firmware (remember the path to where you save it to), and then upgrade the firmware.

Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.
Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings
