Re: Belkin router and modems

I would suggest returning the router and/or purchase a modem router, as it does away with all the connection problems and the need to click dial to connect as a modem router is always on and does not require a main pc to be on. It will also probably be cheaper than buying a seperate modem.

Belkin F5D77230-4 - connecting to modem


It would seem that:
Your modem has only USB output;
Your Router has only Ethernet input with WiFi & 4 LAN port outputs; and
You want your laptop to be access the Internet through wireless connection.

There are USB to Ethernet converter/adapter, an example is shown here.

There are on the otherhand, comparable modems to what you have that provides both a USB and an Ethernet output such as the ProLink H9000 shown here .

Perhaps your best course of action is give your provider first a call and see if you can require them to replace your modem with another model/version, one that has an Ethernet output or a combination.

Alternately, a way can be configured if you have a desktop that has both a USB and Ethernet that we can set up as Gateway (but this is the long method).

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.

I have a belkin fsd7320 router and dlink 302 and cant get to net

It sound like youe wireless card in the laptop is not configured correctly.
The TCP/IP settings on the laptop's wireless card should be as follows :-
In the wireless card's Properties - TCP/IP
Enablw - Obtain an IP Address automatically
Enable - Obtain DNS server address automatically

This is the same for the LAN card.

There is no internet working with the Belkin G wireless Router

How do you have your connection set up? Normally, your modem connects to the router, and router to computers, this is how yours is set up? Since your router is wireless-capable, just make sure that your laptop has its wireless turned on and you have the router's "Wireless" set up, name (SSID) is done, security method chosen. I like WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity, keeping in mind that all logins to your network will need this passcode as well.

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
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.

Belkin wireless problem

If you are connected straight from the modem, your router will not have internet access, only if your modem is connected to the router you will be able to go online wireless. connect your modem to the router nad router to the desktop, so that you can access both wired and wireless connection

I have tried to install router strait from modem to router to toshiba l30 laptop belkin shows up on laptop showing excellent signal but when i try to go on web it cannot make contact

access your routers administration by right clicking your network icon and using your gateway IP to access http://*gateway*
un - admin pw - (none), admin, public
look at your status in the belkin administration settings and see if you have an ip and gateway for your ISP.  The ip and gatway on your computer is for your belkin.
Try directly connecting the laptop to the router with a cable and see if it's on the net. If it is then you have wireless settings wrong. See for more infor about router.
