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

Can't set up Belkin 54g Router with MTNL broadband

I got a relative's Belkin 54G Wifi ADSL router+modem. I called MTNL to help me out with the ip address, gateway and the DNS servers. But I am unable to get any network access with those settings. I can't access either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1! When I use the MTNL modem(no wifi) with those same ip, DNS and gateway settings, I am able to get net access. Is my router faulty? Are separate settings required for Belkin routers as opposed to the ones that MTNL rents out? I use the following ip 192.168.1.*** gateway 192.168.1.1 DNS 59.18*.*.**

Samay,

You should reset your router to clear all information from it. The best procedure to fully clear your device would be to press the reset button with power on for 30 seconds; while continuing to press the reset button, remove power from the unit; and while continuing to press the reset button restore power for 30 seconds.

You should now be able to access the menus after the unit boots up with the default user name/password for the unit. If you do not know them, just Google [your router name] default user name and password. You can now set up the router to meet your requirements. There is a lot of information that will help you on the Internet, but having a clean booted router is important to start with.

Hi Craig,

First I suggest you remove the second IP address as this is your public address most likely that should not be posted in the open online for all to see. That being said, have you attempted to perform a full reset on the router? This is performed by holding the small pinhead button on the back of the router down for about 30 seconds while plugged in. Once done you can set the router back up like you did when you first purchased it.

You can find the manual for your router as well as possible firmware updates on the following page. (Have your model # handy!)

You need to attach the Belkin 54g wireless router to the DSL/cable modem. Then have all the computers connect wirelessly to the belkin. They should then be able to get out.

Hello Ames3pack

Just with your windows firewall, or antivirus program, can do the trick. but if you have the router manual better, ! then you can go inside the box with the IP and set up things!

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.

Hi i have been trying to set a password for my belkin router but cannot log on line to the ip address


The address fro your Belkin 54G wireless router setup should be: http://192.168.2.1/
I would bypass the WiFi link/security and connect your PC/Laptop to be used for configuring the router via the Ethernet cable connection plug in Port 1 of the router.
If you do not have the password, you will need to reset the router to 'factory default' by using a small reset button on the back: you need a pen to push it down. Hold it down for about 10 seconds and it will put the router to factory default settings.
You will then need to reconfigure the router using the Belkins setup CD that came with the router (or download it before hand from Belkins support site): this will normally set it up automatically for you.
Hope it helps!

Belkin 54G won't connect to the internet


Are you sure your modem is giving a WAN IP from your ISP? Try power-cycling your modem with your router unplugged then bring up your router next, if you havent tried that already... After that try connecting your modem directly to a PC and set your NIC card to DHCP and see if you get an IP address thats routable to the internet (i.e not a private IP)
