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

1 Answer

Keep losing connection

Pc- dell insirion laptop
IPS-Brighthouse networks

I've had this router ( 11+months) and have had no problems until 2 days ago.... while searching internet repeatedly got 'cannot find server' .
My taskbar icon showed no connection available...right clicking
"Connect to" sidebar shows my wireless connection but does nothing.
Choosing repair / troubleshoot results in everything working-no problems found.
Checking 'view available internet connections'...my wireless connection is not there........blank window ?
If i choose 'set up a wireless connection' ...I'm told that connection already exisits ???????????????????????????.
After spending hours on phone with dell tech,it came down to unplugging and replugging in the router . Turns out this works--however-- only temporarily.... a few hours later -same problem occurs- so-unplugged router again- everything working- 6 hours later -same problem -this has been going on and on and is becoming a big problem .... thoughts, suggestions....help ?
Ty in advance

My Sony bravia tv keeps losing connection to the Media server (computer) I can reconnect but it keeps happening randomly daily Please help


Hi there.
I assume that you are connecting wirelessly. The most common problem is that the TV is at the outermost range of the wireless signal from your router/AP. try moving the router/AP closer to the TV. However I would recommend that you use a lan cable rather as this is a more reliable connection. You will also need to check your network settings. To keep the network connection more stable make sure both the TV and media server have static IPs, especially the server.

How do i get out of the limited connectivity mode


Hello Pat,

From the description of your problem you are using a laptop to access the internet through a wireless router. The computer reports limited connectivity mode when there is little signal or a problem logging on to the router. That is called APIPA (automatic private IP addressing). That means the system cannot connect to a DHCP server (the router). Can your laptop even see the router when you look in the "available networks"? WEP/WPA encryption is a possibility. It's possible that the router is set to only give out 10 IPs and your desktop is #11. In that case, you or your network support technician would need to increase the number of DHCP clients on the router.

DON'T COPY A DHCP ADDRESS TO ANOTHER COMPUTER. You cannot have 2 systems with the same IP in a network. APIPA means that your TCPIP stack is working, but the desktop cannot communicate with the router. A static IP won't solve this.

We hope that this helps. If there are further problems please post back.

I just upgraded from Brighthouse to FIOS and I have intermittant wifi connection problems. Why would it work sometimes, and not others?


If you get a 'Limited connectivity" on you wirelessconnection on your laptop, it means that the wireless card on your laptopprobably did not get an IP address from the wireless router.
To fix this problem, right click on the wireless icon on the Task bar and thenclick Repair.
This will force the wireless router to issue a IP address to the wireless cardon the laptop.

Cannot renew IP address on some PCs, each day it's a different PC in my house. This started happening a couple weeks ago.


It is a router's default behavior to lock some IPs to a particular PC which are usually using it on the network. It is a leasing feature. Example, if your PC is using 192.168.0.125, and your IP range in your router is 192.168.0.100 - 255, every time you connect, though you are alone in the network and no other PCs are connected, still your router will lease 192.168.0.125 to you unless otherwise you disable this leasing feature in your router's admin interface. Renewing IP from the computer side do not alter the router's leasing policy. So right clicking on the network icon and selecting Renew IP won't help. What you need to alter is your router's IP leasing behavior.

Netgear wireless adapter


When you say home bases, i assume you mean desktop pc's. If the channel you mention is the channel that the router works off eg channel 11 then all wireless adapters have to be set to channel 11, or the same channel as the router. The reason for one disconnecting from the internet will probably be the adapter losing the signal because of obstacles like walls and doors, as if the signal gets too low then the reciever cannot connect properly with the router, hence dropping the connection. Try the router in a different higher position or at a phone socket nearer the troubled pc. The connection accross the network should be atleast good and at 54 MBPS, anything less may not connect properly. The laptops will tend to have a stronger connection as most have a signal up booster built in the screen.
