Try first resetting the router by pressing the reset button of the router for 15 seconds while power is ON and then try to reconfigure it again but if still not working this can already mean that the router is bad and needs replacement.....

I have a new belkin n150 when i conect to the modem, there is a amber flash light for the modem on the router, when i conect the computer directly i have conection, i have folowed all the instructions but...


This indicates that router can't detect cable modem or this is unresponsive, probably your modem is logically tied with your PC (MAC address associated), that's why when you connect them directly work fine, if this is the case, you'll have to clone the MAC address of your PC into your router, this should be at Setup Menu, Manage MAC addresses option.

Tip

Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP: ·


Configuring Belkin routers without installation CD for Cable ISP :
  • Connect the cable Modem/ Ethernet cable from ISP to Router in the port named Modem (usually yellow in color) using an Ethernet cable.
  • Connect the Computer to the Router in one of the 4 ports named wired (usually grey in color) using another Ethernet cable.
  • Open internet explorer / Firefox / chrome or any of your default web browser.
  • In the address bar type the default gateway address of Belkin router 192.168.2.1Belkin router setup page (RSP) will be displayed.

Wired Part Configuration:Check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it is connected then the wired part is working perfect with the router (wired computers will go online). Need not follow the steps below, directly jump to wireless part configuration.
If it is not connected then we need to configure by following these steps.

Step 1: You need to LOGIN to the router for making any changes. (No login password, just leave it blank and click SUBMIT)

Step 2: Click on CONNECTION TYPE (found on left side of RSP), it has to be selected as DYNAMIC and click next.

Step 3: HOST NAME leave it blank or you can type anything there and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 4: Click on MAC ADDRESS or MAC CLONE (found right below the connection type on left side of RSP).

Step 5: click on the button CLONE (once you click on clone the MAC address will get changed) and click on APPLY CHANGES.

Step 6: Before doing MAC clone one important thing has to be noticed. Check whether you are able to go online when you connect the computer directly to the cable modem. Because Cable ISPs uses a particular kind of authentication called MAC authentication. Hence, only the particular computers whose MAC addresses are registered in their database will be able to go online directly from the modem.
***MAC clone is a feature that copies the MAC address of your computer and pastes it in the router. So the router will have the MAC address of your computer and it will get connected to the internet.

Step 7: Now check for the internet status at the top right hand corner. If it says connected then everything for the wired part is configured perfectly. You can go ahead and configure for the wireless part.If it is not connected then we need to do a network power cycle.

Steps to be followed for performing Network power cycle:
  • Unplug the power cable of both your modem and router.
  • Wait for 30 seconds.
  • Plug back the power cable of the modem and wait until all the lights are lit up in it.
  • Now plug back the power cable to the router and check for the lights in the router.
  • Modem & Internet lights will be lit and they will be solid (blue/green) in the router; it says that the Internet status is connected. Now you will be able to go online in the wired computers.
  • If still Modem & Internet lights are not solid in the router; it may be blinking in red/ amber it says that the Internet status is not connected.In this case you need to repeat the above Network power cycle by unplugging the cable that is going into the cable modem from the wall outlet.
  • Still if the internet status is not connected, then connect your computer directly to the modem and check whether you are able to go online.
  • If you are not able to go online, then you need to contact your ISP and fix your issue with internet.
your wired part is configured completely now.To configure the wireless part click here

Can i connect belkin to belkin through dsl modem and how


Yes, you can connect:

DSL modem WAN/Internet port on Belkin #1

LAN/network port on Belkin #1 WAN/Internet port on Belkin #2

LAN/network port on Belkin #2 your computer

If the two Belkins are in different rooms, and there are more than one computer in the room with Belkin #2, it makes sense to run ONE (not MANY) Ethernet cables from Belkin #1 to Belkin #2.

HOW CAN I GET MODEM ACCESS CODE ON SPEEDSTREAM 5100


hello
When you have modem plugged straight into computer, you can access it at 192.168.0.1, should ask for modem access code, (on bottom), then you can click 'advanced' > ppp location and set it for 'on computer'. There may also be a link for technician stats, it will give you info about isp connection. You should / might be able to browse but ISP may need original MAC address of machine (network adapter} you used when 1st signing up. Or if set to PPOE, it would look for name / PW in order to access INternet through ISP.
Anyway, try (after setting PPP on computer) Modem into WAN of router, access router, set PPOE > insert Log-in name / PW and save all settings. Then try homepage, if no, have router "clone MAC address" of the Network adapter you had the 5100 plugged into. Now it should work, even if no <INTERNET> light. ETHERNET light should be constant. Have router use DHCP to address machine independantly of what ISP addresses router, which it will do when modem (having connection confirmed with DSL light)

The other way, PPP location set 'on Modem', means the modem signs into ISP and then it assigns IP address with a timeout around 20 minutes. By getting connection test results when modem is connected to computer, it may seem to make sense, by understanding how ISP knows that modem access code / MAC address, and lets the settings of modem determine if router needs to sign in or not. If PPP is 'on modem', it will be looking for the MAC address of computer, that is why you may need to clone that address into router, so the router can appear as the machine to the modem, than the router assigns net address to computer.

Re-Connectivity to Comcast Modem


All you need to do is "MAC ADDRESS CLONING". Access the router's setup page and look for MAC Clone settings. Enable that and clone the mac address of your main PC. After that, perform a power cycle. Turn off the router then the modem. Wait for 30 seconds then power on the modem first, wait for all the lights to go solid then power on the router. That should do it.

Setting up the BEFVP41 Router with a Cable Modem and a Dynamic IP Address


Connecting the Router and the Modem 1. Connect the Broadband modem to the computer using an Ethernet cable without the router installed and make sure that the Internet connection is active. If it is not, contact your Internet Service Provider. 2. Shut down the computer, and unplug the power cables to both the router and the Broadband modem. 3. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into the Internet or WAN port of the router. 4. Take the Ethernet cable that came with the router (or any another available cable) and connect it to the computer. Then, take the other end of that same cable and connect it to Port 2 on the back of the router. 5. Plug in the Broadband modem's power cable and wait for all of its lights to stop blinking. 6. After the lights on the Broadband modem stop blinking, plug in the router's power cable. 7. Start up the computer. Obtaining the PC's MAC Address Windows 98SE/ME 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input winipcfg into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3. The ?IP Configuration? window should appear, select the Ethernet Adapter that the PC is using from the drop down list. 4. Make note of the ?Adapter Address? which is the MAC Address. Windows XP/2000 1. Click on the Start menu, then click on the Run option. 2. When the ?Run? window opens, input cmd into the ?Open? field, then click on the OK button. 3.
