I have a Belkin G+ MIMO router. I just bought a color Nook from Barnes and Noble and am having trouble connecting it to my wireless. I have found the info in properties, but the security key (password)...

The security key for the router should be stored ihe computer that was used to configure the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router. You should be able to retrieve the passkey from any of those computers, by installing some additional software.

For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

I have a Belkin F5D8233-4v3 router. I can get just one wired port to work. I use both wireless and wired connections. Could this be a hardware or software problem?

That's a fairly new router, you shouldn't be having those issues. Make sure you're identifying the uplink port, the quickstart guide with router should help with that.

If everything is wired correctly, it could be either firmware of hardware. Might want to try calling Belkin or even where you bought it from to see if you can exchange. Sounds like you got a defective unit. Alternately, try going to Belkin's website and downloading and installing the latest firmware for the router. If that doesn't do it, then you have a hardware failure, and Belkin should owe you a new router, that router claims a lifetime warranty.

There is a new firmware v4, sounds like you have v3, check here:

hi! check the settings of your router, some routers have a settings that if it is idle for a certain period of time it will auto disco.. disable this option and if this problem wont fix, try to download the firmware of your router there is a possibility that the firmware of this router still have bug and ur still using the default firmware since u bought it..

Is belkin router f5d8230-4 a g or n? i need tyhis

It is a PRE-N router, which means:

When you see a “pre-n” product, it is one designed based on the future “n.”
standard, but is not a standard. It will generally only work with that companies devices, which means if you buy brand XYZ’s wireless router, you will also need to buy brand XYZ’s wireless networking adapters for all of your computers.
Interoperability between pre-n and non pre-n devices can be difficult and even if you get it to work, you don’t gain anything unless everything is pre-n.

Belkin Pre-N Router Is Repeatedly Dropping Connection

Also, I noticed dropped wireless connection constantly. After researching Belkin and other websites, I was told to set the wireless channel to a set channel like 1  instead of the preset of Auto. Everything worked better. It is best to research what channels your neighbors are using and set your wireless channel about two channels away from your neighbors' network. For example 6, is youreighbors' network, I would either set my network to 4 or 8 to prevent interference. Sometimes I file-share extremely and lose the wireless connectivity, I recommend just unplug the router for 30 seconds and power it back on. Good Luck. I hope this helps. I love this router for 3+ years since 2006.Waiting for wireless n standard to be ratified, but this Belkin pre-n router will do for now.

During the download process on the laptop, keep an eye on the signal strength of the wireless network. If the signal seems to drop out at the time of the download failure, I'd recommend disabling the power management of the wireless card.
