Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
My apartment receives its internet connection via ethernet from an external router. I had been using the Belkin F5D7231-4 as a wireless router (not configured as an access point) but recently it dropped the internet connection. Upon changing the settings off of dynamic IP and onto static I can get the connection status of the Belkin to a green "connected" but when I wirelessly connect to the Belkin it still shows as local access only and no internet. I've also tried configuring it as an access point but not sure what the downstream router is and cant get this to work either.
Why did you change it from dynamic to static? My suggestion would be to put it back to dynamic and let it grab a good ip address from the gateway. The other option is to contact whoever managed the network at your apartment and see what they will charge you for a static IP address.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.
you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.
