Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

2 Answers

Internet will not connect through router.

My girlfriend and I moved into a new apartment and she has a desktop PC and I have a laptop. Up until a few days ago, everything was working fine. I connected the modem to the wireless router and connected her computer to that. There were no problems. She had interne, and I could pick up my wireless network. A few days ago, we had a cable outage. Ever since then, we have had problems. Whether or not that was the cause or just coincidence, I dont know. The problem now: Initially, we couldn't connect at all, with or without the router. She talked to the local comcast tech, and he went through the normal check-up tasks and said that the problem must be with the computer and he couldn't help us. The next day however, she has no problem connecting, when the modem is directly connected to the computer. When I connect the modem to the router, her computer will no longer connect. On my laptop, I can see my router name at full signal, however I cannot connect to it. I would assume that the problem has to be in the router, but I don't know what to do. I don't understand why it would work perfect for a couple of weeks and then just fail on us. Does anyone have a clue what is going on here? I am going insane! I just received my new laptop today, and that cannot connect to it either, although it recognizes it is there and at full strength. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Josh

Sometimes routers just lock out, type in your web browser 192.168.2.1, this wil take you to the password section of your router, unless you have one just press the enter button. Look for the dhcp setting and ensure its enabled as it may not give you access to the net. If you need to on the left there is a restart router button, this will restart the router, but not loose any settings. If all else fails, unplug the router and reconnect or press the reset button on the back for a return to factory settings. I have having the same problem although i know all is well at my end, generally if the ADSL/cable light or link light is flashing or not lit and the internet (planet icon) you can bet it's your isp's line fault. The signal you are getting is the wireless signal which indicates your immediate wireless network is functional, but if all the lights apart from the lan cable connection lights aren't lit your not on the net.

When i hook it up i get the laptop to pick up the signal but the desktop will not go online


on the hind side of the modem how many ports do you see
my guess one port slightly seperated and named INTERNET or WAN and four more ports numbered 1,2,3,4

now connect the network cable from the modem to the WAN / INTERNET port and connect the laptopand PC to the ports1,2

now check to see if there is connection to only on Laptop or both

but if you have conection to only the laptop/PC connected to port1 then try this small trick

move the laptop to port 3 and in port 1 connect the cable from the modem which was connected to the WAN / INTERNET port

and u r set to go

Moving desktop across room where there is no cable connection.


you can buy a cheap USB wifi adapter and connect the desktop wirelessly just like your laptop, this should do the trick.
or you can buy an access point to extend the range of the wireless network, you should not be moving the router itself this way.

Speeding up internet


Here are a few suggestions on how to speed connection:

- Move router or pc location if possible. Closer = better connection usually

- Try changing the channel your router is broadcasting on. Sometimes there are slower channels and faster channels in heavy traffic area

- If you have any toolbars in your browser (i.e., yahoo or google), remove them. Those toolbars use up resources that can slow you down.

- Delete cookies and internet files

If these don't work, post a comment on here with your operating systems on laptop and desktop and router type.

Hi jjroyc

Let's see if we can get your laptop connected to the Internet.

First, I have some questions and a few instructions for you.

(01) Is this a new (to you) router?

(02) Do you already have one or more computers connecting successfully to the Internet using this router?

(03) If yes, are any of them connecting wirelessly?

(04) Have you recently (at another location for example) successfully connected this laptop to the Internet? If so, did you connect it "wired" or "wirelessly".

(05) Are you trying to connect your laptop to your router "wirelessly" or "wired"?

(06) If you are trying to connect the laptop wirelessly, turn off your laptop's wireless radio and connect the laptop to the router "wired" instead (using an "Ethernet Patch Cable"). Once we've established that the laptop is capable of connecting to the Internet via the simpler "wired" connection, then we'll move on to the more complex wireless connection.

(07) Please, go HERE to download the manual for your particular router. You will need to determine the version number of the WRT54G model 1st. There are instructions there that will guide you through this.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
