Question about Belkin Wireless-N Wireless Router with 4-Port Switch

Belkin N Wireless Router - wireless light no longer lit up

Router: Belkin n wireless router, F5D8233-4, version 1022uk

We've had the router installed for about a year now with no problems. Recently the connection kept disconnecting, up to two or three times an hour on bad days, though some days it would be fine. A few days ago the wireless light on the router went out completely but all the other lights are still on. Now you can get a limited connection to the router but this does not allow you to use the internet.
What could have caused the wireless light to go out and how can I fix it? Any help is greatly appreciated but I'm not great with computers so I really do need step by step help to fix it. Thank you.

    Have you tried obviously restarting the router? Turning it off and leaving it for 10 mins then turning it back on again?

1. Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings

Hi. I have just set up a Belkin Share wireless router, Connecting to internet fine, but can't get printer to work via usb. Green light above socket doesn't come on when I plug it in. Thanks in advance -...


Ian, you have to 1st of all connect that printer to the computer and check if its working fine or not. Check if you have installed the necessary drivers and software that came along with the printer. Once that gets to go, then, connect the printer to Share router and check if the light above the USB is lit up to check if the port on router is working. If that is lit, you have to be connected to the router (make sure that you aren't connected wireless as a guest). Guest access doesn't have the rights to have file and printer sharing! Install the router monitor software properly that would be on the disk which came along with router or download the latest version of software from: http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3714/p/5132
You also have a brief tutorial on how to configure a printer with this router on the Belkin Support website. Here is the link for that. http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3796/p/5132.

For further clarifications, do revert!
Thanks for asking.

Unable to configure my wireless belkin N150


As i understand you have a router provided by your ISP: MTNL, you need to configure the Belkin router in Dynamic mode and not in PPPoE. Then restart the devices by unplugging the power from MTNL router and Belkin. Wait for 20 secs, then power up MTNL router 1st, wait for all lights to get steady and finally power up the Belkin wireless router. Then you will find the modem and internet light lit up properly.
For any further clarifications, revert!

Thanks and regards,
Arvind

My wireless light do not come on on the router at all.


The wireless light on the router lits up only when any wireless devices gets connected to this router. It is normal if this is the case.
But, if the wireless light is not lit even after any wireless devices gets connected, then in that case there are two possibilities:
a) LED behind the wireless light would have blown off.
For this, nothing can be done, though you may use the router till it gives you good wireless connectivity!
b) Reset the router (the reset button will be present at the rear end) and then re-configure with the CD.

Dell Inspiron 1501 cant find Belkin 2000


Do you mean wired or wireless?
If wireless, can you detect other wireless signal or ssid? If not, make sure your wireless is enabled. If yes, make sure the wireless light is lit on your router.
