    Hi "timid",

    mikeju here again, many thanks for your reply. My query may have been unclear - I have used firefox, on this laptop, for ages and love it. I have bought belkin n router, but they recommended internet explorer - so that has been installed/configured. Can I uninstall present firefox and re-install, importing IE settings so that I can use firefox with this router ? Many thanks again.

Yes you can use firefox that will not be a problem , but while installing firefox import all the settings from ie, router is an external device , will not affect any functionality in your laptop, it supports all browsers.

Do i need a modem? if so which are compatible?

When you speak to Comcast you should see if they are providing you with a wireless modem/router that will be everything you need.

If so, you will not need the Belkin router as Comcast will supply you with the hardware you need. If they only give you a modem, your Belken wireless router should work fine with the Comcast modem.

Hope that helps!

I installed a new Belkin F5D8236-4 Ver. 3000, on my Mac about a week ago. Had to call belkin support as the router was connected (and working) but I could not run the setup (manually or using the wizard)....

1.this may be due to the browser settings
Clear you cache and history folders and try again.
trash all the folders of the old configurations for the Safari ,firefox,IE etc.

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Belkin N Wireless Modem-Router F5D8633 drivers

Just hook it all up, and push and hold the reset button in the back of the router for 10 sec..

Then unplug your internet box, [cable/DSL box] and plug back in,
The internet box will send a IP to your router automaticly.

[If it dont work unplug power from both boxes, then back in but plug the internet box in first..]


if your useing wireless this will not be setup with a password to join, and will be open to neighbors,,

If you want to go to the next step and setup a password to join, you can do this with out the cd also, but get it working first and hit me back

just type into your browser and it will get you into the settings, just as a cd would but you still have to manually enter your settings with either way of setup.

Belkin Router

Honestly, it probably just broke. My Netgear router just suddenly stopped working like this and I spent 30 minutes on tech support just for them to tell me my router was trashed and not under warranty. You can try resetting the router and/or modem. But if you can use it wired, but not wirelessly I'd just buy a new one or see if it's under warranty.
