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

1 Answer

Not pickin up signal

When I search for the belkin wireless router signal that is installed in my house it says:

Windows connot configure thie wireless connection

If you have enabled another program to manage this wireless connection, use that software.

If you want Windows to configure this wireless connection, start the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) service. For information about starting the WZC service, see article 871122 in the Microsoft Knowlegde Base on the Web site.

I used my Belkin wireless connection plenty of times and now its not working.. what shall I do?

Re: not pickin up signal

Upgrading the firmware (which forced a software reset) solved a similar problem I had with an SMC router. Have you tried logging into your router via an ethernet cable and doing a software reset? If you try this, be sure you have all the information you need to set up your wireless network again because the reset will wipe out all this information.

Belkin Router Signal Weak

Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

How do I set up my wireless Belkin F5D7050, I no longer have the CD. My computer has Windows Vista?

1. Hard wire your pc to the router/modem using ethernet cord / cat 5 cable or use usb storage to download the driver to this link

2. Install the driver/software by executing the file.

then follow this:

SymptomNot able to go online only with the wireless connection.
ResolutionTo address the problem, use the following steps:
  1. On the Belkin Wireless monitor utility click on the tab AP List .
  2. Select the encrypted network that you wish to join. Click Connect.
  3. This will take you to the New Profile page . Enter a Profile Name .
  4. On the next page, you will see the network name, the network type and the transmit rate. Click Next.
  5. This will take you to the page that will ask you to select the Authentication Mode. This will be OFF by default. Select Open System or Shared Key depending on the network.
  6. Then select 64-bit or 128-bit encryption depending on the configuration on the Router/AP. Click Next.
  7. On the next page, select Input Method , which will be Hexadecimal (0-9,A-F) or Passphrase.
  8. Select the key index and enter the keys or the passphrase depending on the configuration on the router/AP. Click Complete.
CauseYou are not able to connect to a secured wireless network because the router/AP (what is this?) is encrypted.
SummaryWireless networks by their very nature are not secure because data is transmitted across open (i.e., air) media. This allows unintended “listeners” to receive the data. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is used in a wireless network to secure the signals and hence the data.

Actiontec Model GT701-WRU signal failure when on line when using notebook in other parts of the house no signal to desk top pc on third floor of house signal to low disconects from the net can you...

That is not a configuration problem, that is a signal problem.

It means that the signal does not have enough power to reach all part of the house.

A way to fix this is by installing a repeater, like this one Linksys WRE54G-UK 54Mbps Wireless Range Expander

Your router is a G, not very powerful. An alternative is buying a more powerful N router, like the ones below.
