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

3 Answers

Wireless Internet Connection

I have a Belking 54g wireless router which I have installed it is connected showing the signal as excellent, but I cannot bring up a web page it keeps saying it cannot be displayed.


If I plug the modem directly into the computer it works perfectly.

    Sorry if I sound a bit stupid, but I do not know a lot about computers, when you say is the router connected to a network, how can I find this out ..... I haven't a clue!

  • NateTheChamp Mar 13, 2008

    I've had my network up for 5 or 6 months, and i just started having the same problem. The router is broadcasting both wireless and hardline signals. When I try to connect to the internet via one of the router signals (hard or wireless), my computer picks up the signal and, in the case of the wireless, says signal strength is excellent. But I can't actually connect to the internet via IE, Firefox, AIM, etc. When I go into router configuration it's reading not connected. If I restore factory defaults, the connection will probably establish maybe 30% of the time, as soon as I secure, rename, do any sort of configuration, I end up back where I started. I'm complete lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    @ all off the above.

    If the comp shows its connected 2 da network... check what IP address you get for da wireless network connection( ckick start-- run-- type cmd n click OK-- in da black cmd prompt window type ipconfig /all)

    most likely u'll get da IP as 169.x.x.x( only for da wireless network connection)

This is the same problem im having. And the issue seems to be with Belkin as well. My laptop with vista shows excellent signal strength, but i cannot bring up any website. Does it have to do anything with WEP key or something?

Connected wireless to router, excellent signal, but unable to connect to internet.

connected to wireless router with excellent signal may not means you are connected to internet. make sure your modem provided by internet service provider has signal! connect your computer to modem directly bypassing router. If you are online that means your internet is functional. Then connect modem to your Linksys router and use your wireless to log on to internet.
Your router wireless signal active and excellent means you are connected to router not necessarily the internet. The modem supplied by your internet service provider with active internet should be connected to you router on WAN port!
good luck!!

Installed Trendnet wireless adapter. Connection shows excellent but can't browse internet

The "excellent" is the signal-strength between your wireless adapter
and your wireless router.
You still need to select the SSID ("network name") that you configured into the router, and enter the password for your network, before you can connect to the Internet.
Compare it to having a brand-new mobile telephone. Until you dial a friend's number, and the friend answers, all you have is an "excellent" telephone.

My belking keeps losing connection during games?

If your wireless you probably need to change broadcast channels on the router ( to the last channel) if its hard wired, you probably need to port forward the ip address for the Xbox

Samsung NC10 will not connect to any network

If WLAN and Wireless cards are enabled, then you may have to unplug your router for 10 seconds to reset it. They tend to build up a static charge. Unplug wireless router for 10 seconds, plug back in and you should be fine in a minute or two with full connectivity

when you put the mouse over the network icon in your taskbar, it will say access: Local & Internet or local only.

if Local & internet you have a connection to the internet, if local only then open internet explorer, tools, internet options, connections and check that there is no default connection, it should be never dial a conection thats ticked or greyed out.

Wirless Network keeps failing


It is possible that you need to further fine tune your WEP configuration. To verify if it's the security lock, try running the laptop and the router without the WEP security (disabled) and determine if you still get the "Limited connection or no connectivity".

If yes, you have just eliminated that area and could consider other possibilities, otherwise you then have to concentrate on the WEP security.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on any developments (or lack thereof) or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
