Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)

Wireless connection not stable, connect/disconnect every few min

I have a Belkin wireless G router F5D7632ak4A. After configuring it with my PC, I can get to Internet on my PC. I have another laptop which I can "see" this wireless connection. But after connecting to it, I keep seeing "Not connected" status being shown. It will connect for a short while (~1-2min) then disconnect, then connect again, disconnect again, and keep repeating. Anyone knows why? And how to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

    No, the wired connection never drop.



    I'm a newcomer with wireless. Where should I check to find out what is my laptop wireless adaptor?



    Let me clarify my situation. Someone helped me to setup my Belkin, and it was working fine. Recent, another person was trying to check the configuration settings but I don't have the admin password. So, this guy hard reset the Belkin, and all settings are back to factory defaults. He tried to set it up again but it seems something is still not right, so the wireless connection keeps dropping.



    Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi, reisenstein,

    I have tried channel 6, 7, 8 & 11. But no difference.



    Hi, tennis123,

    I connect to wireless at a few places where I work, besides my home. Is this what you mean by "surf wirelessly on networks other than your own"? If yes, how do I resolve it? Thanks.

    Then you must log in to your router and look at the wireless settings. look at which channel you're set to use. Let me know that and we are one comment away from solving your problem.

    Does the wired connection to the net ever drop? What wireless adaptor is the laptop using?

I had the came problem and tried everything on this and all the other web-sites that discussed the same problem.

Finally resolved this by simply changing the channel number to channel 10 on the router settings.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like you might have more than one client managing your wireless adapter. Can you normally surf wirelessly on networks other than your own? When you have more than one client trying to manage your wireless adapter it will typically cause intermittent connection. I have seen troubles where a customer has windows xp client enabled as well as linksys and netgear clients all trying to manage one single piece of hardware. Hope this helps

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Belkin wireless router disconnects from wildblue every 2 min


There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the Belkin wireless router away from walls and if possible move the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. changes the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

No wireless connection :(


If you have your broadband configuration info written down, you could try resetting your router to the factory default settings and then re-configure it.

For most broadband connections, the default settings will work OK, but you should configure your router with a secure administrator password and wireless key.

The user manual for the router as well as configuration software can be found here:

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4)


hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected

Belkin ADSL2+ Modem with Wireless G Plus MIMO Router


Me Two, I just reboot my cable box and router box, i do wireless online gaming and every bout 10 mins, i get disconnected even though i have full signal, on he routers web interface settings I have everything up-and-running and thr top right hand corners says connected, but when it drops I just realised that the internet light stops blinking aswell..???
What is this, this routers is way too annoying keep getting disconnected from every god damn game.
Keep me up-to-date if you what the preoblem is.
And oh, the person who can't get on the internet even though his ''WAN'' Says Stable i have 2 possible reasons.

In the address bat type in the following..
192.168.2.1.
look on the left of the screen you can see DNS, if not already ticked, tick the the little box which states.
'' Automatically assign DNS by IP'' then Apply Changes.
Or, Go Straigt down to the bottom and go to system settings, also go down to the very bottom. At this poin you can see A option or '' Advanced Featue! '' Menu saying, UnPn or something lol, click the box which says enable or something.

Hope this has helped
