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

Open Question

Can't connect to web

My son has a Belkin 54g Router. His kids laptop connect thru wireless and can access wb no problems. Status pof wireless connection shows that the ipv4 settings are 10.0.0.1 . My sons Dell laptop will only give a wireless connection that is local ie no net access. His ipv4 numbers are 192.168.2.3. My laptop has exactly the same problem. I can connect to the router by cable and net access is ok. I have tried ipconfig /release & renew. The ip address that the Belkin shows when I access it is 192.168.2.2. Where is the 10.0.0.1 on the kids machine coming from? I set security on the Belkin and had to enter that code to access the web, so they are definitely coming out of the Belkin. What is going on? How can I fix it?

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

No wireless internet - problem with belkin router


From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.

Login/logout - password request goes to status page only


Hi, You said that you cannot change anything on the router setup page, right? Have you tried to clear your browser's cache or used other browser or other PC to isolate the problem? There's a possibility that you are just seeing the cache of the router's interface and that's maybe the reason why everytime you change something it just goes back on the status page.

Cannot load web interface


Hi,

You said that you cannot change anything on the router setup page, right? Have you tried to clear your browser's cache or used other browser or other PC to isolate the problem? There's a possibility that you are just seeing a web cache of the router's UI which could be the reason why everytime you change something it just goes back on the status page.

Can't connect with 2nd computer...


1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.

I have tried to install router strait from modem to router to toshiba l30 laptop belkin shows up on laptop showing excellent signal but when i try to go on web it cannot make contact


access your routers administration by right clicking your network icon and using your gateway IP to access http://*gateway*
un - admin pw - (none), admin, public
look at your status in the belkin administration settings and see if you have an ip and gateway for your ISP.  The ip and gatway on your computer is for your belkin.
Try directly connecting the laptop to the router with a cable and see if it's on the net. If it is then you have wireless settings wrong. See belkin.com for more infor about router.

As long as the computer you are connecting has the capability to connect in some form, wireless or wired, you will not have to run the web utility again. However, if you are currently connecting your laptop wirelessly, and you are connecting your other computer with a wired connection, you must make sure that the wired network is not disabled.
