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:

Windows xp sp2 doesn't recognize and software will not let me connect to router

First of all you have a wireless "N" adaptor running on a router set for 802.11g. You need to have the same router as the adaptor, "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.

Going wireless

Hi, sorry to hear you also having problems with the Belkin. I just bought exactly the same one and have just replaced it with a Netgear one as it didn`t work very well! Dont think the software is too good with Belkin but the encryption I used was TKIP (Belkin did work sometimes!) I also had a network key. sorry I cant help more-melanie
