Re: AOL instant messenger

Try pluggin directly into the router (test without your WiFi).. is it still happening? If not, then the problem is most likely your WiFi settings.. you might want to try a different channel (the default is usually channel 6).. so change the settings on both the router and the computer to..say.. channel 11..

Let me know the results..

Internet doesn't stay consistently connected

belkin is famous for dropping its signal for no apparent reason, in my findings and dealings with several routers i have found "netgear" to be the best company not just for their products but for their customer service and tech support as well

It is a small Netgear from aol and I wish to change it over to a belkin . when i asked oal for help they gave me e serious of leters and numbers and told me to contac belkin and you would put these...

Belkin is compatible with aol, its just that the company dont support that router.. ie there support isnt trained in using it. They should provide you with the correct aol settings to use with the belkin. To put these in, connect your belkin
  • open internet explorer or alternative browser
  • type in the webaddress bar and enter
  • this is the offline website for your belkin
  • click connection type on the left
  • leave the password box empty and click submit
  • On the connection type page you should be using pppoe
  • go next, your usernamer should be in the form
  • and password
  • Aol will provide correct username and password if unsure of login details
  • VPI and VCI are 0 and 38 respectively
  • Mtu should be 1400
  • The rest of the default belkin settings are fine, click next and apply or finish at the bottom.
  • Your belkin router should now be connected to Aol

Any problems get back to me. Hope this helps.

Update the firmware on the router to the latest version available on Belkin's website. Do this over a wired connection, NOT wireless. Also, make sure that your modem is not the issue.

Connecting a new wireless notebook to my existing Belkin 802.11g

All the steps you have mentioned is You are can connect by configuring the WEP code. but if you have disabled the ssid broadcast then you have to add your access point(FSD7239-4) manually when the wireless discovery fails to detect.
And also refer the manual of the Notebook or wireless adaptor' manual for how to configure the same. (Check the help files of the client configuratin utility if anything installed if not you can refer how to use Wireless Configuration in windows.)

With Regards,

Belkins router not connecting to cable modem

You need to start from beginning. Clear all temp internet files and run this programme Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. Get into the routers settings(probably and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first) If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps) look in Mac address Filtering is off. Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection. Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly
