Re: connecting to sky broadband

In general the Wan port of the router gets connected to the modem (box supplied by your internet service provider or ISP) where the computer used to connect and the computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 or more ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site. If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment. Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know the Manufacturer and Model of the Modem -- probably the box supplied by your ISP. It would also be helpful to know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to new routers with factory default settings.

All of the above information may lead to the determination that maybe we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the modem to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.

To provide detailed information concerning that I will need to know the model number of your Belkin Router.

How do i conect another laptop to wireless

You need to know the password for your wireless signal. If you do know it, use the second laptop to search for your wireless name. Click on your wireless signal, and click join or connect. When prompted, type in your wireless password. If you don't know your wireless password, you are going to have to reset your router. Instructions on how to do that are here:
Then you will have to connect a ethernet cable between the router and a laptop to access the router's menu to create a new wireless name and password. Open your web browser (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) and go to the address Http:// The password should be blank.

Will my laptop router conect with nintendo ds lite

Not if Wifi connection is turned off. You may need to get a new connection and be able to keep the old one for no price. I dont know how to create a new wireless "wifi" allowed net, so you may need to ask around for help.

My Belkin F5D8053 is working in low strength

If you're encountering a very internet connection on your router, this is can be a problem with either the internet connection from your modem or the firmware of the router should be updated, first thing that you can try is to update the firmware of the firmware of the router, you can download the latest firmware of it from Belkin web site then after that observe the connection if you still have a slow internet using the router , Try to check now the internet from your modem by connecting a computer directly to your modem and if you still have the same problem internet connection from your ISP is the problem so you can contact them about that..........

Installation CD

I lost my installation CD and received these instructions from the Belkin Tech Support, and was able to install the Wireless N Router with no problems.
Follow the steps given below for configuring the Belkin N router manually.
- Connect the computer to the "LAN" port on the router and connect the modem to the Internet/"WAN" port, using Ethernet cables. 
- Take a paper clip, insert the paper clip in the reset hole of the router and hold it for 15 seconds.
- The power light will flash and then come back "ON" solid, indicating that the router is being restored to factory defaults.
- The corresponding lights on the front of the router should be lit up.
- On the computer, check if you have an IP address in the range of 192.168.2.x.
- If not, specify a static IP address, gateway and "DNS" address by following the steps given in the link- 
- Log on to the router web interface by typing in, in the address bar of your browser.
- By default, the password is blank.
- Click on "Connection Type" in the left hand column under "Internet WAN" heading.

If the connection type is Dynamic (cable):

- Choose "Dynamic" and then click on "Next". 
- Type in your “Host Name”, if you’re Internet Service Provider has provided it. Else, leave it blank.
- Click on "Change WAN MAC Address".
- Click on the button "Clone".
- Click on "Apply Changes". 

If the connection type is PPPOE (DSL):

- Choose "PPPOE" and click on "Next".
- Enter the user name and password given by your Internet Service Provider.
- Save the settings.
- Click on the "Home" link at the top of the screen. 

Internet Status should show "Connected" on the top right hand corner of the web page.

If the problem persists, please get back to us with the following information:

1. Type of connection provided by your ISP (Is it PPPOE, Dynamic or static).
2. Name of the Internet service provider (ISP).
