Question about Belkin Wireless Pre-N (F5D8230-4) Router (F5D82304)

1 Answer

Wireless connection works and then disconnects itself

I have been using the router wirelessly for several months without an issue. Recently i am having issues staying connected. It seems like I can connect fine and then in a few seconds a red X is displayed over the wireless icon. Also, when I refresh network list sometimes my network is there and sometimes it isn't. If I connect the cable from the router into my laptop i cannot get on the internet.

This used to work fine, nothing was changed. How can I troubleshoot?

Re: wireless connection works and then disconnects itself

Look for a program on the web called Net Stumbler
It should be here
That will show the signal level from your router.
I have seen this before and it could be several different problems
1. Someone else on your channel
2. Burned out ant or output section in the router
3. Broken Ant wire in laptop

Hope this helps

At&t wireless router and magic jack setup

It could be the router which is giving you issue. Press and hold the reset button for 30 second and this makes the configuration to go back to its previous settings. The reconfigure the router with a new SSID and security key. Try connecting to the wireless network, the computers will consider it as a new network and will connect without any issues

My wireless connection connects then disconnects

I would check two things on the router
  1. remove the wireless encryption and see if that makes any difference
  2. look at the channel being used - if you have a PC available that is connected by wireless to the router - you can use this program to check what channels are being used and then change the channel to one that is not being used - ideally use channel 1 or 6 or 11
  3. Does the phone work on any other wireless signal without loss - if not then it may be a dns issue and we need to set up public dns ips for the phone - post back if this is the case

Wireless not conecting to internet.

Long time back I had a similar issue. It could be a virus in ur system that is blocking ur internet. If you have recently downloaded any files especially WINRar, then it might have the trojan that kill ur internet. Run your virus scanner completely, if it does not show anything, try Malwarebytes Anti-malware, download it from and not from anywhere else. HTH.

Zoom aDSL modem/wireless router seen but not connecting

Here are a couple of ideas to look at first, assuming you haven't tried them already:

1) Does moving the router help? Sometimes a new DECT phone or a microwave, or even a piece of equipment at a neighbour's house, can interfere with the signal.

2) Does changing the channel on your router help at all? If there are many other networks using the same channel, this might block your own signal.
3) If this does not make any difference, it might be worth checking your security settings.

Use of router in network

Try reset the router & cable modem. There ia a reset (very small) button on the back of the wireless router & the modem. Disconnect the power cords to both. Use a pen & hold in for 10 seconds (router & modem). Re-connect power (router & modem) & restart PC. If your service still has not returned. Chances are it's your internet provider & not you. Double check by connecting your modem directly to your PC.

Several Router problems

It sounds like an ADSL signal strength issue. Test that it is not a problem with the ADSL phone cable setup, using the shortest ADSL/Phone cable you can find (under 1Meter is best)unplug all other phone line using devices and filters from the wall jack points and test the routers connection again as the only device plugged in(this is Isolation testing) If the issue replicates itself under isolation testing conditions then ring your ISP providor and request that the "ADSL signal voltage" needs to be increased slightly as your router is not hearing the ADSL signal properly. If the issue doesn't replicate itself under isolation test conditions, you are either using an old or bad ADSL/Phone cable or your cable is too long (should not be longer than 5meters)or if you are using a wall socket/splitter for direct adsl access (without filters)then test the socket with a filter to verify the socket/splitter is not the cause of the problem, if you do use phone filters, during isolation testing, test each of the filters individualy with the router and see if the disconnection issue is replicated if so replace the bad filter the disconnection issue was being caused by phone signal interferance. Your third request requires you to setup the LAN info on the windows side of your connection not the wireless card, this can be verified by searching for websites via thier IP address which will work, when searching via their website name wont, DNS resolution issue, it is probably best practice to use MAC Addressing for your wireless setup though.
