To reset the router to default,
•Unplug all LAN cables from the router.

•Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

•Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

•Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.

SOURCE: Belkin Nimo wireless router internet drop outs

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) .
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Router works with Ubuntu but with locks up with Vista

You need to log on with admin privileges to make changes.

Confirm settings in vista network properties (tcp/ip) are correct.

Belkin Router doesn't connect to internet

GUYS, omg this is so damn unbelievable. I've searched EVERYWHERE on the internet until some genius told me that the reason why I couldn't get internet even though I connected to the router was because of the stupid Norton Internet Security Firewall that was still in use after uninstalling. After I downloaded Norton Removal Tool, EVERYTHING was back to normal. I'm NEVER going to use Norton again, I don't care how much they have improved I was using 2008 and it caused me so much trouble. I recommend everyone out there to not use Norton as well. People out there are saying that Norton is a virus itself in that it is VERY hard to uninstall.
