    My 4 ports on my Belkin g-router (F5D7230-4) are used up and I have a spare older Belkin b-router (F5D6231-4) that I would like to use as a wired switch. I need one more port for a recent Tivo HD purchase. (apparently it only uses their proprietry adapter for the wireless g connection and it's expensive). I figure this switch can be the hub for the living room tv accessories. I don't need the wireless access of the old b-router and there is an "Access Point Mode" on it. Is it as simple as enabling it? Do I need DHCP to assign IP addresses for each toy requiring internet access. Thanks.

If the switch doesn't have an "uplink port" or autodetect the port speed, then you will need a crossover cable to connect the DLINK to the Surecom switch. If this is the same issue then rate this one so it can be closed. If not then let me know how it goes. Good Luck

Bought a d514-4 port,router @ a yard sale with no CD


There's no need for any CD-ROM.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) to the WAN port on the router.

Use another Ethernet cable to connect your computer to one of the 4 'LAN' ports on the router.

Restart your computer.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like: Default Gateway .... 123.456.1.1
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://123.456.1.1
Press Enter
Login to the router's web-site (try 'admin' & "blank"; try 'admin' & 'admin'; try "blank" & 'admin')
Run the router's "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the wireless adapter.
Done.

Make sure that your computer is able to go online
through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the
modem
Then you 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.

2) change the ethernet cable
3) change to different port on the router
4) uninstall/reinstall drivers
5) run spyware cleaner and anti-virus

Routers dont have drivers, but for firmware updates go to this site

>If you have the login page, Type admin/Admin on the username and leave the Password Blank.
>Once inside click on Home and choose WAN on the left side.
>Choose Dynamic IP address
>Click on Clone Your PC Mac Address
>Click on Apply > click Continue..

>Click on Status
>Under WAN look for the IP Address
>If you have values on it beside from 0 it means you have Internet connection now. otherwire call your Dlink for manual assistance on configuration your router for Internet connection.

....dead port?...........


Most likely dead port. Probably one of the metal connectors broke, or something internally will be not allowing it to connect or is fried.

Truth is there could be plenty of problems. Though judging with this, I would say its broken.

Yes, but you'll need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. You could buy a hub or a switch. They are easier to configure and cheaper.
