Re: IP address

Hi tammyhope,
I would guess that your ISP is providing a dynamic IP address for connectivity to the internet. If your router is changing the IP address back to default, I would think that your configuration is not setup properly, to receive a dynamic address, but is set with a static address instead. So what happens is that when you attempt to connect to your ISP your router is resetting. If this is the case then you need to go into the router configuration and set it to recieve a dynamic address from your ISP.

Hi my belkin F7D5301 wireless router light has went from a solid green color to a solid amber color and now i cant connect to the internet unless i bypass the router i have tried resetting the router but...

Reset your router back to it's factory settings by holding the reset button for about 5 seconds.
I have provided a list of the most popular router brands. If it does not work you may need to
google what your specific model's default IP address/default username/default passwords are, for
example search for "Encore ENHWI-2AN3 default IP address" The default login info can change, it
can depend on where you obtained your router. If you purchased it yourself from a store then the
standard defaults should work. If you obtained your router from your Internet Provider you may
need to contact your service provider. It also may depend whether it's an old or new model router
as well. And you may need to press and hold the reset button on your router several times before
it actually clears. Make sure you have a wired connection then once you have accessed your router simply run the Setup Wizard. Set your SSID as something you'll remember like "Mavericks Network" and your Password can be something like your phone number for example 3109876543

Belkin - Username: Leave the field blank Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

Buffalo - Username: root Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

D-Link - Username: admin Password: Leave the field blank Default IP address is:

Encore - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Linksys - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

NetGear - Username: admin Password: password Default IP address will be: or

TP-Link - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

TrendNet - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Zhone - Username: admin Password: admin Default IP address

Zyxel - Username: admin Password: 1234 Default IP address

Belkin wireless G router incompatible with netgear modem

connect your computer to netgear modem alone and check for the ip address in the computer
(make sure that you have selected "assign ip automatically" in computer)...
to open command prompt type "cmd" and hit enter in run box...
then you can check ip address by typing "ipconfig" in command prompt...
make a note of IP adress or ipV4 address found under the heading "ethernet adapter local area connection"
it might be 192.168.X.X
now connect only the belkinrouter and check for the ip address using the same steps above...
it might be 192.168.2.X
make a note of that...
now compare both the ip addresses if they both have the same value in first three places...that is
192.168.2.... or something like 192.168.1.... or 192.168.0.... then you are facing with double NAT issue...
all that you need to do for that is to change the ip address of belkin router...
if it is change into something like issue will get resolved....if not you can reset the belkin
router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds using a toothpick when the power is turned on...

Router will not return ip address - limited or no connectivity

Try again with static ip.
Then if it is connected then you have restart the DND service of winxp.
For that go to start ->run
type in run "services.msc"
then check in right pane you find DNd client.
Right click on it then stop then again restart it.
Then check .
If still face same problem then go to another pc where internet works fine.
Access your router with following link.
For belkin router

Then go to DHCP then enable DHCP then save setting and restarrt router.
Let me know if you need more assistanse.

F5D7231-4 stopped connecting to Internet via downstream router

Why did you change it from dynamic to static? My suggestion would be to put it back to dynamic and let it grab a good ip address from the gateway. The other option is to contact whoever managed the network at your apartment and see what they will charge you for a static IP address.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Can't reach after securing the connection

This is very doable.  However, the way Belkin does it is not quite as secure as other companies (my linksys has an option to allow wireless devices).  What has to be done is you have to allow your router to be managed remotely.  When this is enabled you can just enter in your router's IP address and in you are.

First, hardwire back into your router and login as you normally do.  Under utilities click System Settings.  Check Any IP address can remotely manage....  

Below it you'll notice that you can specify an IP address that can access your router.  If you set your wireless up as having a static IP (and as you're talking about BitTorrents and port fowarding, you'll probably want to) you *should* be able to use your internal IP for it (ex.  But the documentation doesn't mention it, and I'm 50/50 on if it will work or not.  Regardless, the any IP address will work no problem, just make suer you use your router's WAN IP address, no the  

If you find the answer a little confusing feel free to ask me to clarify.

as long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected. Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection. Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.
