Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
I have a Belkin Wireless N router and an Embarq 660 modem. I have gone to the Belkin URL 126.96.36.199 and have verified the settings. I changed the router's IP address to 188.8.131.52 to make certain that there is no IP address conflicts between the router and the embarq modem. I have restarted my laptop (Windows Vista OS), released/renewed the IP address on my laptop and still the Belkin router does not recognize the connection to the internet.
The yellow ethernet cable is running from the 660 modem to the router and then I have tried both using a network cable as well as a wireless connection and nothing. No internet.
If I run the yellow ethernet from the modem directly to my laptop I'm online and surfing.
THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE BELKIN RTR AND THE 660 HAVE THE SAME IP ADDRESS THE QUICKEST FIX IS TO RENAME THE LAN IP ADDRESS OF THE BELKIN RTR

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
