Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)

1 Answer

My laptop is connected to a Belkin Wireless Router which was working fine. All the lights are on except the wireless light and I'm not able to use my laptop. I have contacted my service provider. They told me it was the router so I contacted Belkin and they went through a lengthy step by step procedure with me and got me connected. It happened again a few weeks later so I contacted Belkin again. This time they told me it was my laptop.The laptop is not that old but the warrenty is expired. Is there something else I may need to check that may work before I get rid of my laptop? My router model # is F5D8233-4v3 What I used as a product in the box below is incorrect. My model was not listed.

There's happens a bit with my router as well...too often actually, normally when I'm downloading... Usually though it's fixed by just rebooting the router. unplug it for about 5 minutes and plug it back in. Like i said, usually that will do it, other times it's that along with a reboot of my computer

    No other suggestions yet because i'm still trying to figure it out. Not sure what OS you are using, but I think it may be something with vista and windows 7. I've used both those OSs and it was a daily thing for the router to go out. I've switched back to XP and knock on wood, it only happened once since

Cant connect ,no light on wireless connection. was


you need to setup the wireless connection if you havent already and your router needs to be a "wireless" router in order to create that type of internet connection. Have you laptop then scan for one which would be the one you just made and input the correct information to connect. If that doesn't work I'd suggest getting a new wireless router

Router will not go wireless. all lights come on


The "wireless" (second) light on this model does not indicate that the router's wireless features are active, it indicates that a computer is connected to the router wirelessly. If the "router" (fourth) light shows three little "radio wave" symbols, the router's wireless capability is on.

Belkin n1 router - wireless light not on - laptop has limited connectivity


If could be that you were unable to reset the router properly. You have to make sure that the router is on while pressing and holding the reset button using a paper clip. the reset button is usually found at the back of the router, then you may have to reconfigure the settings again.

you can also manually access the router page for you to change the settings.
