Belkin F5D8236-4 v2 - disconnects

Wireless router disconnects, regardless if its hardwired or wireless.
it requires that i reboot the router (unplug power) in order for it to re-set and gain connectivity. once connected - 10mins later the connection stops, and will not reconnect automatically; it requires unplugging power again.
Wireless feature is terrible, slow and drops frequently. i have searched for firmware,nothing! i have called tech support; only to be frustrated with no solution! i have changed static ip to dynamic and vice versa, changed channels, changed ssid, changed security etc... to no avail.

You can get the latest firmware here:

I don't think that it is a problem with your IP address settings.
I would disable all security temporarily, just to see if that makes a difference.
If you are using Windows Vista, take a look at this post and see if that could be one of the underlying problems.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Belkin N Wireless router no longer has hardwire signal

There would be a reset button on the dotted side or at the rear end of the router.
Keep that reset pressed tight with a paper clip or a needle for 3 minutes with power plugged in. When you are pressing it, you may see the lights flashing on the router. After releasing the reset button, after the lights come up, unplug the power cable and plug it back in after 1 minute. After this if you have the CD, try re-configuring it for your internet service.
In this issue, there are two possibilities, either the IP address is 169.254.xx.xx or else it may show as media disconnected due port speed negotiation.
The above mentioned fix is for 169.254.x.x issues, and media disconnected issues occurs rarely.
But this will fix your issue 99%, but for 1%, you can always get in touch with me with more details like model #, number of computers, etc.

Thanks n regards,

Trying to create a bridge with two routers

You do not need a bridge if you are using a wireless adaptor on your pc in the other room. Just set up the Belkin Plus router to the WEP security settings you want and make sure the pc wireless usb adaptor has the same settings as the router. You should be good to go. Good Luck.

Problem connecting to router

Log into the Belkin router and make sure that the DHCP services are running. If it is, and you still are not getting addresses, perform a factory reset of the router. There is a link in the web management console to do this.

Belkin router, apple lap top and del Inspiron are the three I have in the house.How to connect the new computer to the router?

You should be able to hardwire (Ethernet cable) those pc's to the router. If it is wireless and you are not running cables directly from the router to the pc's, you have to have wireless cards installed in each of those computers in order to pick up the 802.11 wireless signal. The wireless software on the pc will find the router as long as the router is in range. If you have setup the router properly you should be fine. You may just need to power out and reboot the modem and router after connecting the pc's in order to assign new IP's to each computer receiving a wireless signal.

If you have any problems please respond with as much information as possible including model numbers and ISP provider.
