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

1 Answer

Problem The only way I can get the Belkin N+ Router to recognise the WD MyBook is to reset the router (via the software). It then recognises the WD MyBook until it is left alone for 10 minutes or so and it goes to standby mode. Once in standby mode, it wont come wake up again until the router is reset again. Frustrating! Anyone have any other suggestions?

I have a Belkin N+ router and I am trying to use the USB storage sharing feature. I have a WD HDD mounted in an Ultra external enclosure. When I plug the HDD into the router, the storage LED on the router...


it says the HDD is not compatible with the router.... it might be due to the file system in HDD....
At this moment, the Belkin N+ Router and Modem-Router, F5D8235 and F5D8635 work with the FAT, FAT32, and NTFS file systems only.

Versions of the F5D8235 firmware earlier than 1.01.24 may fail to detect a drive that contains a mix of supported and unsupported file systems. This was fixed in firmware 1.01.24, available from the Belkin UK Support Site

We have seen a few compatibility problems with drives not being recognised and we are investigating these to get them fixed.

We have also seen occasions where a drive was not detected by the router or modem-router due to a poor quality USB cable. If a bus-powered drive does not spin up, the first thing to do is to make sure that a good quality cable is used. Even self-powered drives may fail to be recognised when using poor quality cables. Even though the cable may work when the drive is connected direct to a PC, always try a different (good quality) cable as part of troubleshooting drive detection problems.

Tech Support: If you come across a drive that is not being recognised by the Router or Modem-Router, please check on the hidden page http://192.168.2.1/storage_disk.html if the router has detected anything at all. Make sure that the drive works when connected directly to a Windows computer and try a good quality USB cable as mentioned above.

Belkin N Router does not recognise PPPoA connection type


First reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds while power is ON and then after that run again the setup , just to give you a clue which one to choose for the internet setup, if you use Cable internet select Dynamic and if you use DSL internet set it to PPPoE and provide your email and password from your DSL company...

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


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.

Trying to connect a Mybook 1Tb network drive to N1 Vision


Hi! I have an N1 Vision with similar problems. I have done some research and found that we are not alone with this issue! Two solutions are possible: 1) If yours is version 1 (1000) of the machine, Belkin recommends that it be swapped out for version 2, which apparently has firmware/hardware changes that fix this (unverified; it would seem to me that this would require a whole new DHCP approach) and 2) I've found that if you go through the process of unplugging the device for 2 minutes, replugging it and then refreshing the DHCP table, after between 1 and 5 iterations, the device should appear. I'd also advise you to shut down (for troubleshooting) the software firewall in the router (you'll still have the NAT firewall), that might eliminate a problem/conflict somewhere in your network!

Good luck and let me know if this helps!

WIFI PHONE NOT RECOGNISING BELKIN WIRELSS ROUTER


the router is not configured by default as an access point.
to use the phone the router must be configured as an access point, which is more than disabling security, nat and dhcp must be removed..
