The problem may lie in the router of your friend. It may not be supplying enough Ip addresses. Or your laptop is not configured to get ip addresses.

Wired internet connection not working


you must reset the router by 30 seconds and try again. Remember they have a password for wep key for access. do you do it?when you installed the router the software is you want the connection close or open?
However you must click in open network connection , and select network troubleshooter and fix it.
If the problem remain, you must go to router supplier manufacturer via ONLINE chat, and explain the problem.
or reinstall the Router again follow the steps with your disk instalation.
God bless you

Very intermittent connection


Sounds more like a ISP problem than you router but try replacing the LAN cable between your modem and router then rebooting both devices (turn off wait 10 sec then on).

The final solution is a factory reset of your router. You can do a factory reset by logging into the router using you browser. Go to the settings and perform a factory reset

If you forgot the router password, you ill have to do a factory reset by locating a small hold on the back of the router and insert the tip of of paper clip for about 10 seconds while the power is on. The router will be reset to out of box status and then you can set-up form scratch.

What is error code 91010? After playing Mario Kart


Try these:Error Code: 91010 Our experience shows that error messages within this range are typically caused by an unstable network connection. The issue could be with your connection environment, your friend's connection environment, or a temporary issue with the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Our servers may be trying to handle an unusually high amount of traffic (especially if you are trying to play online with a recently-released or popular game, or if there is a new Wii system update). Please retry your connection later
If you have waited a few hours and are still experiencing issues, try the following:

  1. How are you connecting online? The Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection is only compatible with Cable, DSL, and Fiber-optic internet connections. If you are connecting via Satellite, EV-DO (cellular), Dial-up, or other types of connections, then you should try to use an alternate type of connection. Contact your Internet Service Provider if you are not sure what type of internet connection you have.

  2. The error may be caused by a basic setting on the router that needs to be adjusted (such as the channel). Please review our general router troubleshooting.

  3. Some games may need certain settings on your router enabled or disabled to allow a successful connection with other players. This can include UDP and firewall settings that will vary from router to router. You can view our router pages by clicking here. If your router is listed, check to see if there are any special notes that may help. If there is no information for your particular router or you need further assistance, check out Nintendo's Tech Support Forums. Other users may have already found the solution you're looking for.
If you have tried all of the steps above with no success and you have been encountering the error for a period of at least a few hours,please call 1-800-255-3700. Our representatives are available between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time, seven days a week.

Internet connects, however when we try and view a page it doesn't work. The amber light shows when it is not working properly. We have rang our ISP and they have done various things and it doesn't...


Is this a cable service?
It is possible you have a bad connection. Either inside the house or outside.
Cable.. You will have a cable modem connected to the cable.
One main thing to do is to re-trim all the ends of the cable at every connection point between the modem and the outside connection. Replace any old connectors or splitters with new ones of correct value. The idea being to remove any oxidation which will impair the signal. If none of this helps, you may need the outside wiring looked at. Your connection service should do this at no charge.
If you have not done so, power off the modem completely, including removing the battery back up.
Wait about 20 seconds. Reinstall battery and power connection. About 20 -30 seconds to reconnect.
"few hours everyday" might indicate a problem outside, (wiring or junction box) possibly warming up in sun and cooling later?
On the PC. Use the connection wizard to "connect to a network". Connect to your own network on every pc you use.

I cannot access the router settings.The light keeps flashing green.I cannot manually set up my settings.It said the setup was a success, but later when I was setting the router settings it told me I lost...


Flashing green means its trying to contact the modem. So, there is some problem with modem-router connection or with the modem.

Disconnect the modem from the router and connect the modem alonely to the desktop and check.

If you are unable to go online, restart the modem/reset the modem.

After that, connect the modem to the router, then reset the router (In the back side, U can see a reset button. Hold the button upto 10-15 seconds, lights will go off and it will vary). then, power off the router and after 10 sec, make it on.

Then it will go to default settings. Now, try to go online.

If not, Call Belkin 1800 2BELKIN. Life time Free phone support 24*7.

Wireless connection to belkin g router model no. f5d7230-4


You need to access the setup page of the router using connected computer.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

Take note of the SSID. This is the name of your wireless connection.

Then go to Security under Wireless. Copy the network key.

On your friend's laptop, view the available wireless networks, you should see the SSID, then just enter the network key.

I hope this helps!

Hello, I got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 for christmas. and i can be on my home wireless network. then it will suddenly drop signal and i wont be on the internet any more. what's wrong with it?


hi Power off your router and wait about 45 seconds then plug in the power to the router again, restart your dell mini and see if the connect gets more stable. do you have any other wireless pc's in the house? if so do they work fine? if you dont have any other wireless pc's try to get a friend to come over with a laptop and see how their connection is to your network... that will definitely isolate if you have a router issue or a PC issue. keep in mind if you have other pcs in the house and they are hardwired into the router, they will not exhibit the connection loss that wireless pcs connected to the router will experience.


hope this helps!

How long should it take for a ps3 to update?


This depends on your connection, your connection speed, update size, your router, and distance from the router. For instance if you have a 5mb connection with a wireless router to your ps3 in a room across the house, and a ps3 in the same room as the router, the one closer would download faster. So I would say it could be anywhere from the range of a few min to a couple of hours.

Vista Router Wired Connectivity


while seeing this ....please flip it over and post the model numbers on the bottom....I can tell you how to get into the router but with out the static ips from your isp wont help much.... to get into it go to INTERNET EXPLORER (not any other) and type in the address bar as follows 192.168.62.1 and hit enter in the user box that pops up put " admin or user " as user name and " admin or password" as password.....that should access the router...you might be able to assign one but im guessin you will need to contact your isp to get the correct numbers....

HELP!! Connection Issues


I think Tech Support is hiring if you want a job. If your using DHCP you can try to assign an IP address. Assign a channel on the router not auto-select. But it does sound like just a weak connection. Not hardware related. I'm sure your laptop is just fine. Without spending alot of money, try another brand router. If it works, great. If you get the same results (bad connection), take the router back and get your money back. If all else fails, take your laptop to a place that has a wireless internet connection (Circuit City, BestBuy, StarBucks, Etc..) and see if it works there. You may need to change the location of the router.
