Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router
I have a belkin wireless router. My main computer connects just fine, but my kids computer will not connect to the internet. It pulls up an error page as if there is not internet connection. My wife is hounding me to get it fixed and I'm not a computer person lol. I need your expertise please.
First, is your kids computer trying to connect via the WiFi connection? If so, do you have any encryption enabled on the Belkin? (WEP, WAP, etc.) Can the computer 'see' the WiFi Access Point, meaning can it see the SSID (or WiFi name)? Are you using the Built-in XP Zero Wifi Config Utility, or did you install a proprietary utility from Belkin?
Since you have already soft reset the router (power cycle), you may have to do a hard reset using the Reset Button on the back of the router.. you will loose all your configurations, so be ready to setup your WiFi connection again..
