Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
My belkin model f5d7230-4 wirless router keeps losing the internet but if you unplug the mains supply then plug it back in it will work ok for short time then goes off again
If you are having issues with your router dropping the internet almost on a timed interval (ie every 10 seconds) here is what you should do. Doesn't matter what brand the router is, its stuck in a loop and needs your help. You need to find out what your default gateway is (routers IP address = Default gateway) to do this you need to fire up the command prompt.
Go to the Start Menu and either click run or press the R key to open the run dialog box. Type in cmd and click ok. You should get a black box with a C:\ prompt that has some words after this is good. Type in ipconfig and press enter then look through the list for default gateway, it should be under the LAN or Wireless LAN. To the right of default gateway it should have a number. Normally but not always it begins with 192 (ie 192.168.1.1 etc) write this number down.
Vista and Windows 7
Same as above except you need to do it a little differently at first. type cmd into the start search box and up above you will see a small icon with the words cmd next to it. Right click the icon and choose run as administrator. The rest is the same as above.
Connect to the router by opening a browser window and typing in whatever your default gateway is (remove the http://etc... and type the number in)
Your router will usually ask for a username and password. You can find this either by reading the manual for the router or going to the manufacturers website and reading the manual.
Next do the following:
1) Backup the routers configuration using the administrator console (save it to the desktop if possible) also make sure you are connected to the router using a WIRED not WIRELESS connection.
2) Go to the router and look at the back, there should be a reset button sometimes its in a hole and you might need to use a pen or unbent paperclip to get at it.
3) Push the button and hold it for no less than 30 seconds. The router should shut down and restart itself a few times.
4) log back into the router and reload your settings using the file you put on the desktop.
5) This is neccessary to do when the routers settings have changed for any reason (i.e. Firmware update etc)

My laptop has been getting knocked off alot with this router as well, i started looking around online for advice and this is what i found if you go to your router's set up utility.......i get there by typing 192.168.2.1 in the address bar. look for firmware update.

I don't use Bittorrent. I just browse the 'net, and do normal activities. Belkin sucks.
When I lose the 'net and login to the router, it says everything is at 0.0.0.0...
Subnet Mask 0.0.0.0
WAN IP 0.0.0.0
Default Gateway 0.0.0.0
DNS Address 0.0.0.0
Restarting the MODEM fixes the problem...if I restart the router only it works for a bit then dies again.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
If your network is secured then make sure that you are typing the correct network key.
also make sure that the DHCP server is enabled on the router.
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.

Hi 8233 is a good choice for a router
Here's your solution
1. These steps are to be performed strictly from a computer which is wired.
2.Even if you are using your mac book turn of the airport and connect it via a cable.
3. Open your router setup page by typing in 192.168.2.1 on your browser tab or typing i http://192.168.2.1 in the run window
4.An rsp will open and on the top right hand corner of the screen it will say Internet status:: connected
5.On the left hand side change you"ll see channell under wireless
6. Select it and change it to 6 or 11 for best signal strength
7.Now to the most important segment 8233 has a piculiar issue with its extra strong security
8.On the left hand side under wireless you"ll will see an option called wi-fi protected setup
9.Select it and turn it off reboot router and wow the problem should definately be resolved .
Then turn on airport and go wireless along with your wife.
10. You will still be secure with your data through security option on your router (wep or wpa )whatever you use .
Thank you and just let me know if it worked or not

I have the same problem on my fd57633au the problem only appears when i use torrents.. i believe the modem cannot handle too many open connections (tho i am still unsure) currently testing now limiting outgoing connections and it appears to be working fine (i can normally get the moment to halt within 5mins)
