The issue is most likely with your internet connection, depends on the type of the connection you have, most likely you have one external IP address for all the devices in the house (NAT) and only one of the ps3s can be online, or these kind of problems may come up.

I don't think that theres anything you can do about it. Another internet service provider or service type might help, a "bridged connection" type so all the devices have their own IP address, this would get rid of the issue.

You have to live with this for now or get in touch with your internet service provider and find out if your using NAT in your house or if you are supposed to use NAT, or is the connection bridged?

you can possibly turn off NAT from the verizon fios modem, if your connection is bridged - or so that every computer will have its own external IP address. that may work.

Get in touch with your internet service provider.

My computer will not fully connect to my belkin play wireless router, it only showslocal only, how can i resolve this


ok if your computer showing local connection only then its something thats preventing you from accessing internet.. There is 2 possibilities First: Your Antivirus and Second: Your Firewall

1. disable your antivirus and firewall for 15-20 mins
2. right click on your connection and choose repair connection
3. if it still does not work i guess you on windows vista try this :

1. Click on start/ control panel
2. Open Network and Sharing Center
3. On the Left choose Manage wireless Connections
4. Right Click on your router and choose Delete Connection or Network. close the page
5. You will find on the Task bar on the right: Your two computers are not connected anymore
6. Right click on the 2 computer and choose connect to a network, it will show you your Router, choose the router and click connect.. if there a password insert the password and click continue or connect.. when it will be connected it will pop up a menu to save what kind of network it is you choose the first one " HOME ".. Thats it.. Happy surfing

I can't play my PS3 & Comp. at the same time with my router


try assigning a static IP address in the range of belkin router for your computer and PS3...that is 192.168.2.X (where X = 2 to 254)
the default gateway should be 192.168.2.1.... Log into your router and enable DMZ for the IP address assigned to your PS3...Goto Virtual servers in the router setup page and open the concerned ports for playing games in your computer(enter computer IP here in virtual servers)....the common gaming ports would be,
port 80 TCP,UDP
port 88 TCP,UDP
port 3074 TCP,UDP
port 53 TCP,UDP

click apply changes and try playing now... you can also restart the router for working better.... enjoy....

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac


This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.

Lost network key on belkin router with virgin broadband


the easiest would be to login to the router and set another network key.
if you're unable to login you'll have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

Connection lasts about 5 minutes


Basically if you do a connection test on the ps3 and it comes back as NAT3 then you will have problems. You need to forward some of the ports of your modem to get to NAT2. You will need to assign static ip addresses to your PS3s so that you can set up port forwarding
You may have interference from a nearby cordless phone (keep these away from router), could be interference from neighbor, try changing channel you use on wireless router.
Some people have reported success just by turning off SSID broadcast in the wireless router.

Can't even connect to "setup assistant"


it sounds like you need to keep using your usb modem to connect to the internet. then setup internet sharing on the computer and connect the wireless router to the network plug on the computer.....

then basically you are sharing the internet to the plug on the back of the pc into the router and then wirelessly out to the network and PS3

Using 2 routers


You may use your wireless router as an Access Point:

1. Connect one of the LAN port of the Belkin to a LAN port on your Voyager. If the link light on both side are not coming on, try using a cross-over cable. Important: Do not connect anything to the WAN port of your Belkin.

2. Configure the LAN IP address of your Belkin in the same subnet as the Voyager. By example, if your Voyager has 192.168.0.1, you may give your Belkin 192.168.0.3.

3. Disable the DHCP server on the Belkin since the Voyager most likely already has one.

4. Configure the Wireless parameter of your Belkin as you would normaly do.

Using this method, your wired and wireless devices will be able to communicate together since they will be on the same network and your Belkin will act as a bridge between the wired and wireless network.
