Connect one of your computer to LAN port 1, connect the modem to port WAN section, access the configuration page, configure the router as dynamic IP address under settings, then check the IP address under status (WAN section) if you have the IP address it means that your connected.

SOURCE: N1 Belkin to HP notebook - connection speed drops to 24mbps

It might be because of other electronic devices that works nearby in similar frequency...devices lik microwave oven, inverters, modems provided by the ISP which comes along with a battery backup, especially RCA modem which doesnt allows other wireless devices to work nearby it... try to relocate the router to a well ventilated area, and make sure you have kept the router atleast 5 feet away from other electronic could help....

Is there a default password for belkin routers? My roommate has the router in his room and out of the country and I need internet. Is there a way I cam access the guest belkin with a default password?

Hi, Why not contact your room mate and get the password from him? In the meantime, if you are looking for access to the Internet for free, most Council Libraries offer internet access at no charge to card holders.

My laptop wont stay connected to the internet

There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Have a dv6-136 1sb hp pavilion Entertainment pc. i am able to access the internet via wireless internet access when i am close to the router. however when i go three rooms away i get no internet access. at...

The issue here may not be the laptop but the router strength of it's wireless radio. Do you have another laptop or a freind who can come over and test his connection? The DV series laptops have pretty decent antennae and wireless cards. Try to update the drivers for the WLAN card, make sure the antennae leads have a good secure fit at the ends where they attach to the card. If the router is a couple to several years old, it may need the firmware updated.

Wireless Connection

The WPA code is the password to access the router's network, so it can use your internet connection. As long as the Xbox has both the SSID and the WPA password, it can access the internet through the router.

The SSID ( Chris_PC_Network ) is mostly irrelevant to the network connection, and is purely aesthetical. Its only use is to help users distinguish between different networks (so you don't use a neighbor's network or vice versa).

Problems with internet connection have got wifi

Dude, there is no way you can get a better signal unless you come closer to the router or the router comes nearer to you. I suggest that you get a new source of internet connection

Internet problems could use some help.

A neighbor's connection could very well affect you. That's what I think your problem is. Now, to be honest, a 36mbs connection is pretty darn good. It's rare that an application would require more. Even a video streaming solution will work fine over that kind of connection. My professional opinion is, not to do anything.

Bought a router to connect home line with new notebook

Umm, maybe you didn't plug it in right. Try putting in the CD rom of your router, then download it, and it will probably have setup/ help on there.

Turn of wireless

If you use your cable internet service via an ethernet cable, basically plugged into it directly, then there is no way some one can access your internet. If you have a wireless router in your house, someone can use your router for a connection if they are within range. Unless you router is set up with a network key (password) in order to connect. A network key is set by you and only you have it, so if you set one write it down, if you lose it you will need another router in order to connect other machines in the future. Also, a network key only needs to be entered into a computer once, it's not a password that is entered every time you log on, the network configuration in the computer remembers it. Now keep in mind that "hackers" aren't interested in individuals (unless you're a major corporate ceo or somthing), and even if somebody does access the internet through your service that they cannot access or see anything on your computer that you don't allow them to see or access, that security is built in. Don't let Dateline scare you about "hackers", I saw that episode and they made a mountain out of a mole hill, bad. If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to ask.
