Troubleshooting router connection

I have given my Belkin router (not sure of exact model...but it's silver, not wireless, 4 hub, and 2 or 3 years old) to my son so that he may share his internet connection with other pcs in the house. Does his computer need anything extra to be able to connect via the router, rather than by the (adsl) modem as he has been doing? I have given him my cables as well. Hope the solution is easy....Thanks, Lissa.

He should be able to just plug-in and enjoy! You may need to "Repair Connection" when connecting the new source of i-net. You probably won't, but if you plug in and don't see i-net, just hit "repair connection" and windows will renew your DHCP lease and you'll be golden.

I HAVE A LINKSYS WWRT54G , WOULD I GAIN ANY THING BY CHANGING THE BELKIN .I AM CURRENTLY USEING SEVERAL WIRED AN WIRELESS DEVICES, THANKS RICK THE BELKIN LOOKS CHEAP MD F5D7234-4-BC


Hi,

Regarding your inquiry sir, the only thing I can be proud of Belkin is the stability of it's wireless signal. Now, if this Belkin router is configured to connect to a HUB, then all computers that you have within its range can be accommodated. Just make sure though that the desktop computer have their wireless cards for wireless capability, but of course as long as the router is within reach, ethernet cable would be perfect as well.

I hope it helped you. Rate for this information will greatly be appreciated. Thank you for choosing FixYa!

Belkin router F5D8638-4 laptop connects but no internet access


Make sure you entered the same key exactly the same way in both the router and the computer. Also, make sure you have selected a Security protocol that is supported by the computer. Some versions of Windows do not support WPA. XP supports it but really doesn't like to auto detect it. If it's a HP laptop make sure you are using a communications channel other than 6. Some routers give you an option to select the channel HP computers don't like working with channel 6.

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.

Belkin wireless router not assigning IPs for wireless clients


Some routers start handing out DHCP wireless IP's at 192.168.2.100. Try setting the upper limit at .110. If the router is found in a site survey (view wireless networks) but cannot connect, the limitation would be why.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
