I found out that connecting the router with a computer by wire solves the problem. Once you've got the blue light, shut down the wired computer. This procedure is necessary every time you switch off your router. It's annoying but it really works.

    I have to say that I posted that solution after an exhausting (and unsuccessful) search for the new version of firmware that finally I found here:

    http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answ...

    This definitively solved my problem (I'd got the 3.01.04 version, now the 3.01.06 one).

Have you tried testing by bypassing your router and connecting your computer directly? If you were not able to connect, then your internet service provider should be contacted.

    Have you pushed the small hole with a paperclip to reset the router to factory default?

My internet is greatly reduced with Belkin N1 vision wireless (before the hook-up it was 15mbps now only 5mbps), I have tested by hooking directly from the modem to the computer and got 15mbps. Before N1,...


When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.

Clock Settings are wrong!


The router can be configured to communicate with a "time-server" on the Internet, i.e., to talk to that server once a week, to "synchronize" its internal clock with the clock on the time-server.

Access the router's "configuration" screens, and enable the "network-time" function.

Belkin n1 wireless usb adapter


Dear Friend,

1. Connect your ISP modem to your PC and configure as Bridge mode.

2. Remove your ISP modem and connect your wireless router to your PC and configure as PPPOE mode. (refer http://www.wi-fiplanet.com/reviews/article.php/3645166 if any doubt on configuration)

3. Now connect your ISP modem to wireless router, The modem should connect to your WAN cable.

4. And Give the wireless router's IP in your laptop as Gateway (In TCPIP settings of your Laptop wireless adapter / or configure DHCP)

5. Now you can access internet on both systems.

XBOX Live problems with Belkin N1 router


I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.

I bet this helps!
