Are you trying to set up router ?
You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
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.

Routers will not be able to show sync, modems do. Routers are dependent on modems. So if you want to check on the sync, you always would need to check on the dsl light or ready light on the modem. These lights indicates sync on most modems.

There are also modem/router combo devices, meaning these devices works as a modem and a router. Usually, for these devices, sync indicator is labaled dsl.

There can be several reasons. One- your outer could have reset to Factory default, and therefore do not sync your DSL connection to the ISP. See if your DSL Username and password are still configured.
Also- the router settings for the DSL sync can be wrong. Check settings like the VPI /VCI, as these are sometimes specific to certain regions.
Best is to look at the settings in the ISP router, write them down, and then configure the Belkin to the same settings.
Good luck

Dsl light is not on


This typically indicates a loss of synchronization. Check the following items:

-Is the modem/router connected directly to a wall jack? Make sure you remove any DSL microfilters, splitters, or telephone extension cords.
-Do all of the telephones and fax machines in your home have DSL microfilters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DSL_filter)?
-Do you have a security system that is centrally monitored? If so, it will require a special type of microfilter that must be installed by the security company.
-Try disconnecting all of the cables from the back of the modem/router, waiting one minute, then reconnecting them all.

If you've tried all of the above and you're still having problems, the problem is likely with your telephone line or your house's telephone wiring. Call your ISP's technical support and indicate that you have tried these steps. They should be able to test the line, and if necessary dispatch a technician or place a trouble ticket with the central office.

Why does my internet light always flashes on and off and my dsl light


Dear Wendy

if the lights are blinking while the internet is working then it means that the data is being transfered. ON/OFF rapidly means data transfer.
but if the link light is steady for a while and then starts blinking it means its trying to connect to the exchange.

so dont get worried about internet lights blinks.

Thankyou
Gagan

My DSL Light is not on but my wlan light is on but I can not connect


If your DSL light is not on, that might mean your modem is not connected to your ISP's DSL network. Check the cabling, specifically make sure the telephone cable running from your modem to your telephone socket is plugged in correctly. If that's ok, contact your ISP's helpdesk and ask them to test your DSL connection. It might be a mass outage in your area or a technical issue with your DSL line.

Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.

Assistance with blinking light on my DSL modem


First thing to do is unplug your DSL modem and leave it unplugged for about a minute then plug it back in and see if problem is corrected. If not you should contact your ISP tech support. You could have a bad line from the phone company or bad connection in your house. Also if you have filters installed on your other phones you can have a bad filter that is causing interference and keeping yoiur DSL from working properly. You should go to "Start" > "Run" and type cmd and hit "Enter"
In the command window type ping google.com -t (Enter) This will start a continual ping. If you are getting ping times exceeding 70 - 120 ms that could be a sign your DSL is not functioning properly or if you get packet loss. That is when the ping time doesn't return a time periodically.

Can't get a wireless router to work with a speedstream 4200


This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.

Dsl sync


Hi,

The question I have is,
1. Did you have sync previously and it has suddenly stopped working?
2. Is this new a new DSL activation of service to your address and has not achieved sync yet?

for 1.
The most common issue is usually a recent change within the telephone environment or equipment at your address, does any of the following fit your scenario: You recently moved your DSL equipment to another room, you have bought a new phone, answer machine, Fax machine, Sky television subscription, a monitored security alarm service has been installed at your address or health monitoring equipment has been installed or an unlikely, lightening strike or power outage has occurred around the same time as sync was lost.
Any of the previous changes may have altered the way DSL signal is being filtered or split from your standard home phone signal, all telephone line using devices except for the modem/router will need to have its own DSL filter, if security or health monitoring was installed you will need to contact your internet provider and request a line splitter installation (this can be at some cost to the user, so don't forget to check what a local electrician can do this same job for)
DSL Filters can also be very susceptible to problems after power surge/failure or lightening strike at your address. Or if you have recently moved your DSL equipment, please double check the way you have setup the filter and cables at its new location.
The only test required to verify the issue is not at your address is known as an ISOLATION TEST. The router must be checked in a Phone signal free environment, please remove all phone cables from all jack-points within your premis and plug in only your router, without a filter, you should also test your router across all the jackpoints at your address if the first phone-jack you try fails) If we got lucky, you now have sync and the problem lies with one of your phone line using devices or the filter that it is using, start plugging each device back into the phone circuit one device at a time, with a filter and check to see if the router has lost sync after each device is plugged back in until you are able to identify the problem device, filter or jack-point.

for 2.
Follow the directions exactly as above and if no problem devices, filters or jack-points are found, then ISOLATE your router again and call your ISP provider and request firstly a "port reset" for your DSL port, this should be achieved within a 24Hr period, some are able to do this within 20min of your call, if sync will still not come up it is time for the ISP or service provider to send out a technician to verify the issue is not at the port, cabinet or exchange, this may take some providers up to 5 days to achieve.

Some last thoughts,
Dont rule out the possibilty of the Phone cable used for the router has failed (test the cable on a working home phone to verify it is still working)
or you may have bought an extension cable for your router, the length of Ph cable between your router and the jack-point can be no longer than 5meters before DSL signal fade can start to occur, the router will work at its best with a 15cm-30cm Phone cable, the 1meter cable usually supplied is fine.
Also, do check the jackpoints that you are NOT using at this premis (rare occasions have found me resolving sync issues because the vaccum cleaner has taken out one of your unused jack-points under the bed, in the spare room or the neighbours visiting toddler has tried to plug in a jam sandwhich or even a small plastic toy of some sort into an unused jackpoint)
If you are able, do check that your router can get sync and connect Ok at an address where DSL signal and Sync is currently known to be working.
If you have just moved to this address and your property is over 40-50Yrs old, you may want to check with the phone line provider to see if "line insulators" have ever been installed previously to resolve line noise issues, ageing line insulators will corrupt your DSL signal especially on the high humidity days.
I realise this must seem quite broad and intensive, this testing is intended to rule out any possibility of the issue being internal to your address (as we all know TELCO technicians are all too eager to hit you with unexpected maintenance charges if the issue is found to be internal to your property, as opposed to external)

Hope this gets you closer to identifying the source of your DSL sync issues, if you are like the many DSL subscribers out there, you cant stand to be without your high speed internet for more than two minutes either.

Happy hunting.

Belkin Router problem


Hi,

A red light on your belkin router means its already busted as you decribe other lights are not ON at all. In all other types of modems and routers Red LED light on it mean synching up and if more than 20 secs with a red light is already considered busted.

Note: You may also check your phone cable rj11 , power surges, defective phone jack.
