Question about Belkin F5D7234-4 Router

2 Answers

I'm having issues with the belkin F5D7234-4 and intermittent connectivity with the network, i'm running a compaq c502tu and the belkin G/G+ router, which the router is hooked up to a general custom built pc (in the bedroom less than 90 feet from the livingroom) and i'm having HUGE intermttent connectivity issues - is this a router issue, or what? [I've checked the settings and everything!] We've also been having slow internet problems with our ADSL, which could be a cabling issue. We just replaced the router before, again a belkin which had issues with totally disconnecting from the net and having problems.

I have the same issue too...My Laptop Connection(Lenovo G550 with Broadcom 11b/g Wi-Fi wireless) with my G router F5D7234 is slow, sometimes I have to wait for a minute or two for a web page to open. sometimes it does not open any web pages at all. When I plug in the ethernet directly to ADSL Modem, its very very fast!!! If I connect ethernet cable at the back of Belkin Router, it becomes a little fast but not as fast when I connect it directly in to ADSL modem. Signal is strong, I'm just feets away from my router,

I use ADSL Modem with userID and Password to connect to ISP. My default IP for ADSL Modem is 192.168.1.1, I've tried turning off the firewall on the router, copy MAC Address but still have the same issue. Firmware is up to date. I've tried talking to Belkin Support through chat, but he is very rude. He seems to do nothing more than copy paste the copy issues, if I ask him more technical stuff or ask for a return he disconnects the chat. I'm very upset with the performance. Unfortunately I can't upload the router set-up picture, but you should have a fair idea, I plug Belkin Router to  ADSL Modem with ethernet an thats it, nothing much. I would greatly appreciate any help regarding this, please let me know if you need any more details.

Of the Belkin Modem Routers I have used and supported, around 60-70% had connectivity issues.

If the Belkin was cabled there appeared to be less issues than if it was used in a Wireless and cabled capacity.

I suggested to another person only moments ago to quickly sketch a diagram to show, how the network is set up. Add labels to the piccy's which provide the following info:

1. Computer Types (Makes, Models) and OS (Vista, Windows7, Leopard etc...)
2. Connection Types (Wireless / Cabeled).
3. The IP Nos.
4. Modem Types (Make, Model). ie, Belkin F5D7234-4 Router.
5. ADSL or ADSL2.

If it is possible to upload the diagram to FixYa then I suggest you scan the diagram (sketch) or take a photo of it and put it on the computer so it can be uploaded to FixYa.

I only discovered FixYa yesterday and joined, so I am not sure what is possible yet, as I have been focussed on trying to find solutions or provide suggestions on where to find the solution.

I would be proactive and submit your problem directly to Belkin via their website, I have provided the Australian Belkin website link below:

http://en-au-support.belkin.com/

I hope this is helpful to you, please rate it. Regards,

I keep losing the connection to my Linksys N router...why??


1.Primarily, if you use a N standard wireless router, you must go in for the same N standard adapter, to get full efficiency. You didn't mention the model no.
2.If you have any other wireless computer in your house, check with that if it also has the same issues. Try checking with new and old wireless devices.
3.If finally, you conclude that its only this Belkin adapter that is responsible for intermittent connection, then:
3a. Uninstall the Belkin adapter's utility and drivers from control panel(Add/Remove programs)
3b.Go to http://en-us-belkin.com/support and download the latest drivers for your model.
3c. Unplug the adapter and run the downloaded setup file. (Setup will walk you through from here)

But i could have helped you better if you had mentioned the model or part number along with the version of it.
Anyway, this would certainly work.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Internet connection kicks off intermittently


most likely the issue is mostly on the belkin side as you deff don't want to use belkin product for any sort of gaming. If oyu want to continue using it try going to belkin.com and checking for firmware updates for all the devices in the picture and belkin seems to send out a lot of firmware updates to fix he bad ones they have already sent out.

My brand New Asus laptop keeps dropping off wireless network


try it on another wireless connection and see how it works. Belkin routers are usually not the best, that's why they are so cheap

If the prob persist on another wireless network than contact ASUS technical support

Connection problem


don't shout at me, but many of the older compaq laptops did not come with a wireless nic installed, and the ones that did sometimes did not support G let alone N.

If able you need to check that the Wireless NIC if installed/avaliable supports your wireless router or most likly the otherway round.

firstly I would try removing any USB wireless adapters that you may have in use from one of your other computers and try it in the compaq, if sucessful you know that it is not your setup of your home network at fault.
