Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

Router not working after pc power shortage.

The router was working fine until a power shortage with the computer. The computer has been repaired, but the router now indicates it has a problem by the "world" icon blinking. Would anyone have an idea, could it have burnt out when the pc had a power shortage?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciate.

It is very common during any type of electrical spike (like power surge or lightning strike) to have the increase in power go through the network card over to the router and burn it up. This is not an issue if you are connected wirelessly, only when you are hard wired to the router. Also possible the surge came through the power source and got both of them. I would hold down the reset button for about thirty seconds to see if your light stops blinking. If it stops you can probably go in and configure it to connected again. Hope this helps

Can not connect to the internet through router if i hook up the internet straight to computer it works but when i try through the router the computer has no internet connection but it picks up the router


Some cable modems look for the MAC address of the computer until reset. You can either enter the MAC address from the PC into the MAC spoofing setting on the router OR disconnect and unplug the cable modem for 24 hours and start over. First, plug in the cable modem and connect the cable. 2nd, plug the router cable into the modem and router and plug in the router's power supply. Then connect the computer and it should work fine.

Wired, router, modem and internet light comes on but i am not allowed to browse...why is that? if i connect the modem directly to the pc then i can browse just fine...


Well , the problem is with the router , we can powercycle the complete network and if that does'nt work then router's setting's has to be re-configured.

Steps to powercycle the network:-
1)Turn off or shut down the computer.
2)Take the power chord out from the router.
3)Take the power chord out from the modem and the wait for 60 to 90s.
4)Plug the power back to the modem first and wait until all the lights gets stabilized on it.
5)Once the lights get stabilized then Plug the power back to the router and wait for the lights to get stabilized.
6)Turn on the computer and it might work else re-configure the setting's of the router.

NEtgear RP614 cannot connect after a electricity shortage in our home :(


Reset the router to factory default. Usually done by unplugging the router hold in the reset button and plug in the router wait 30 sec. release reset button Wait 30 more sec. and unplug router again. Then reset your computer to obtain ip address automatically in network properties. Next shut down your computer, router and modem. First re-power the modem, give it time to boot (about 2 to 3 Min. for Cable and dsl or 7 to 10 min for satellite), next re-power the router, again give it time to acquire it's info (about 2 min.) then start your computer and try to access the Internet, all should be well...

Good luck, and have a great day...

Cannot share connection


The IP address that you have is an automatic IP address the Windows generates. It basically means your computer is not getting an IP address from the router (DHCP). You should try powering everything off. Then, in this order, power on your modem, wait 30 seconds, then, power on your router, wait 30 seconds, then power on your computers...This should fix the problem since one computer is working already.

Computer stopped receiving wireless router signal


In this order: 1) Turn off all PCs and printers connected to the router. 2) Unplug your router's power cord. 3) Unplug your modem's power cord. 4) Wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 5) Connect the modem's power cord and wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 6) Connect the router's power cord wait for at least 2-3 minutes. 7) Turn on each PC separately and wait until it is completely finished booting before turning on the next PC.

If you still do not have connectivity, read the manual and change the channel of the modem. YOu may be experiencing some RF interference, ie microwave, wireless phone system etc...

Restart problem


You may have to hard reset it by unplugging the cord itself and plugging it back in. When power comes back during power shortage, there may be a power surge rushing to the modem/router causing it to behave abnormally. Also, you may want to put power surge protection on it as it may damage you modem/router as i did mine.
