Re: n1 wireless router

Hi Doosey,

Shut down the modem, and the router. Make sure your Ethernet cable goes from your modem to the WAN port on the Belkin. Start up your modem, and wait 2 min. That is important. Then start up the router. Wait 3 more min, then fire up your computer.
Remember to use the CD, or access your router using Internet Exporer to change the password. and set you security setting to protect yoursefl.
Good luck,

My internet is greatly reduced with Belkin N1 vision wireless (before the hook-up it was 15mbps now only 5mbps), I have tested by hooking directly from the modem to the computer and got 15mbps. Before N1,...

When you only get 5 mbps are you connecting to the new router wirelessly or via the ethernet cable? If it is wirelessly then try connecting with an ethernet cable and see if you still get 5 mbps. If so then try resetting the router (the procedures for this will be explained in the manual) and re-test. Wireless connections can slow down due to obstacles such as thick walls or other obstacles of that type. If all else fails return the unit and try another.

Belkin 8231-4 N1 router lost connection to cable modem

It sounds like a problem with the cable provider or cable modem. I have found the local equipment can develope a problem and most customers in that small area think it is their problem and live with it. If you have not called the cable company then get them on the case. Good luck

Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router I cannot connect to Tiscali HELP

I had this with Bt Internet and this exact same router, you have to phone Belkin up and they give you a complete set of new settings that you manually have to put in during setup. If i remember rightly its a free phone number and the operator who answered spoke semi-english so not all bad, hope this helps.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings

You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).

Downloads locks up - Belkin N1 Wireless Router

I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
