Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
We have a Belkin wireless router, model #F5D7230-4 ver.4002. We have a DSL connection through AT&T (formerly Bellsouth Fast Access DSL). The connection is as such:
Phone cable -> Westell DSL Modem -> Belkin Wireless Router -> Desktop
The desktop is running Windows 98 and until recently the computer could connect to the internet with the setup above with no problems. Recently there was a DSL outage (due to a problem with the server) and since then the computer has not been able to connect to the internet through the router. I have changed the ethernet cables in hopes of correcting the problem, but to no avail. The laptops in the house are all running XP and are getting an excellent signal from the router, but the desktop receives nothing unless directly connected to the DSL modem.
I would go to run and type in cmd. then type in ipconfig, I believe that is right for windows 98. I would look on there and see if that is getting a correct IP and if the DNS server says 192.168.0.1 if it is a belkin router. ipconfig /? will give you the commands you can use with that. There is a ipconfig /renew that will refresh them all. You might have it set to be a static IP and you would want it to be dynamic and have it refresh by itself. You can go to http://hippo.colorado.edu/info/ipsetup/staticip_setup.cgi?os=win98 for directions to change it to dynamic, I would just do the opposite of what they suggest to make it auto config. It sounds like it is looking for a previous DNS server which is not there anymore because the DSL connection reset.
