Question about Belkin (F5D6230-3) Wireless Router

1 Answer

Is there a way to exclude IPs from the DHCP Pool? I can't find an advanced setting. I fear I have bought a POS. I have many devices on the network and need to have them maintain the IPs I have assigned them for "mapped network drive" reasons.

    Thanks, that hadn't occured to me. It sounds right enough to give it a shot. Should hold me over until my new router comes in.

I'm afraid you are right.
On this router, you can only enable or disable DHCP in general, but not set the range used for DHCP.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news...

You could try to set your static IP's in the upper range ( and down) because DHCP usually starts at the bottom range ( and up). I know this is not an ideal solution, but it might work for you depending on the number of clients you have.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Which IP address do you want to cofigure? If you are refering to the router IP's then simply turn on the DHCP option it will automatically assign the IPs to the devices that are connected to your network.

IP conflict on my home network

If there is an IP conflict, that means that two different devices connected to your home router are getting the same IP. In this case one or more connected devices will have limited connectivity, as they will be unable to access network resources.

The following troubleshooting must be performed on one networked device at the time.

Check if the internet provider that you are using allows DHCP. Most broadband providers use DHCP.

DHCP (dynamic host control protocol) means that the IPs, instead of being static are being assigned each time by the router.

If you use DHCP, then ensure that all devices connected to the network are not set on Static IP. If there is a device that must be set on static (eg. a network printer), then change manually the device IP to a different one. Ensure that the new IP belongs to your network range.

Reset the network settings on all connected devices. On computers remove the network adapter from the installed hardware devices list in control panel.
Restart computers one by one, after removing the adapter, and allow the network card to reinstall, using driver disk when needed (ensure that you have the drivers first). It will set itself to DHCP by default.

If that does not work, then you can try changing MAC address on Windows. The MAC address is an unique identifier that is assigned by manufacturer to any Ethernet adapter. The MAC address is used by the router to determine IP. To this purpose see: Changing MAC addresses on Windows .

If still no luck , then the next step would be resetting and re-configuring the router again, using the settings given by your ISP. Ensure that you have your Internet Service Provider configuration settings before resetting the router

At this point it may be worth testing a different Ethernet adapter (eg an USB adapter), rather than resetting the router.

If all that does not work, then either the router, or one of the two network adapter is probably defective. In some case virus or malaware can also cause IP conflicts.In that case ensure that the computer is clean, and eventually replace the router, after testing PC network adapter.

Note:If your home LAN uses static settings instead of DHCP, simply check that the IP set for each device is different.

Change ip address

The IP address is configured through your DHCP server in your router. You're going to have to either look in your router for connected devices or use a tool like netscan.exe (free) to find the assigned IPs in your network, If you don't have too many connected devices, you can keep putting the IPs that are there into your web browser until the device page comes up. They SHOULD HAVE put a reset button on this thing, but they didn't.

In a basic home configuration your not going to have two subnets. When you plug in a device for the first time you should get a class C private address. The first three parts of the x.x.x.x address are your network address the last x is your host address. So your Gateway address (the router) will be like, so it's host address is 1. All other devices will by default be given an address from the router in an address pool like from - these are given out via DHCP. You can give devices statically assigned IPs but there shouldn't be any need unless you have servers which in that case should be static. If you try and give a device an address of 192.168.2.x this is considered a different subnet and won't be able to talk to anything on the 192.168.1.x subnet without extra configuration nor would the router forward the packets out to the internet. So long story short keep all your devices either DHCP or configure the static IPs on the same 192.168.1.x subnet.

Check if you have an other device on the network that has DHCP server enabled, (if not sure) do the following test... power down every device connected to your network (printers, print servers, Access points, switchs, internet modem, etc...) leave only the router and the computer connected, than reproduce the condition (cut of connection) see if the problem is still there, if not than plug back every device ONE AT A TIME than reproduce the condition each time you connect something untill you find which device is giving out IPs... if you find the problematic device, go in setup and desable DHCP, if it still does the problem only with the computer and the router connected than reset the router to factory default, if you still have the problem after that than replace the router...

I have two laptops one wont connect to the internet explorer web

Very vague problem description.
Check the WGR614 settings, you may have activated the MAC address filter for wireless that allows only devices with known addresses to connect to the router.
Next is DHCP settings, is your router set up to provide IP addresses to devices (recommended) or is it set to static IPs? Your laptop must match this in its own network settings.
What about WLAN security? Is your laptop able to match the security settings of the router? Some older wireless devices do not support advanced encryption (TKIP, AES, ...) or any protocols beyond WEP.
Also very common: is the WLAN radio activated on your laptop? Sometimes success is just a gentle push away on an innocent looking switch at the laptop's edge.

Does your ISP give you several IPs by default? Does your hub have a built-in DHCP service? If the answer to both of these is no then you won't be able to connect more than one computer at the same time. What you need to do is replace the hub with a combination Firewall/router/switch. In addition to providing the physical Ethernet connections and protection from the Internet this device will have NAT and DHCP services that will create a small home network for you. Let us know the answers to the first two questions so we know how to proceed. Let us know the answers to the first two questions so we know how to proceede.
