Question about Belkin Wireless Pre-N (F5D8230-4) Router (F5D82304)

1 Answer

Every time I reboot my computer the Belkin Storage Manager adds a new network drive connection. It's to the same USB hard drive I have connected to the router. It starts a Z: drive and works back. I can "disconnect" them but I have to disconnect the last one added last then it will automatically re add another drive. Z: drive if I have disconnected them all.

If you're on a network, you might have a script attached to a group policy object that tells your server to create a network drive each time you log on. So you might want to check with you GPOs in Active Directory, or you might want to check with your stand-alone Group Policy by typing gpedit.msc in your 'run' window

Belkin N+N storage router doesn't work wirelessly


Hi, I had something like that with my Belkin Router N+N with USB F6D6230-4 V1, only I had a configuration wit a wired XP pc, Wireless XP and Wireless Vista. With both XP pc’s it was really plug and play, but with the Vista pc I had some problems to access the on the router connected USB drive. The Vista pc was connected to the network, and had Inet access. Other shared (network) drives were accessible on the Vista pc.

The first thing I tried was if I could access the drive trough its IP address, (\\routerIP in my case \\192.168.2.1), and I did get a question for a username and password. The only thing is that I tried all the regular names like Admin, Administrator, and so on, with my password but I did not get access.
On the internet there was no help to find for this model router on the Belkin websites (diverent country’s), the data on the Belkin websites is out of date, there is no support to find for new models. ………. So finely I did took the phone and did call the support desk…

Solution to my problem:
The problem seems to be in the Belkin storage manager program, that program works not correct under Vista. When I enter the routers IP and use the username “guest” without a password, it get access to it from my Vista pc. The follow thing I did was press the right mouse button on the drive, and press on “make connection” So..

\\RouterIP
Username : guest
Password : none


Hope, that this is also the solution to your problem.

I have recently bought a Belkin N+ Wireless Modem-Router (model F5D8635-4 v1). It comes with the USB port and I bought a WD 1Tb drive to connect with it. I added the WD drive (92.168.2.1My Book in my...


  • First off, the WD hard drive was meant to be connected to a computer.
  • Therefore connect it to the fastest computer you have or the one running the network.
  • Make that drive a network drive.
  • Set the router to handle DHCP using the web based interface (192.168.1.1 on a linksys router, check your manual for the IP address belkin)
  • The drive apparently has three volumes on it: X: Y: and Z: (network drives)
  • I would backup the WD drive and reformat in NTFS format
  • I dont believe that these drives were meant to be networked. Therefore you get what you get....
Good Luck

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


If I understand correctly ... You have not connected the drive to a computer.

If I am not mistaken the WD My Book has preinstalled backup software installed on it. It very well might also have a power down built as part of that programming. Try attaching it to a computer to verify this.

Assuming the backup software needs blank drive to work correctly I would first access the drive select all and delete anything you find (if you know how to unhide hidden files do that before you select and delete all) ... As a 2nd option I would just reformat the drive.

Hope that helps....

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


Hi

i am fairly certain The WD my book external hard drive needs to have the correct software to be able to use and because routers dont have a CD drive i dont think you will be able to do it.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.

This is not as complicated as it may sound. You don't need the manager. Bring up the "run" window (XP - Start - Run / Vista Alt-R). Enter the following address [\\192.168.2.1] press enter. The drive will show up. Right click on it and select Map Network Drive. You can then uninstall the useless program from Belkin.
