Belkin N1 Vision - unable to see networked printers

I have a Belkin N1 Vision Router pluged directly into a Desktop PC Running Windows XP Pro, I have a new Wireless Laptop running Vista Ultimate. The Laptop is connected and going to the internet fine. However I can not see the Desktop or the printers attached to the desktop. Both have the same workgroup name. I had no problem with the set up on my previous Linksys Router. Upgraded to get the N conection speed from my Laptop. The Desktop also does not see either wireless latop. (I have another laptop running Vista Home)

Go on the main PC and Press Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes, Right-Click On The Printer You Want To Share, Properties, Sharing...

... If it comes up ( If it doesn't skip to the next part )...

Click On...
Click Share this Printer, Apply, Ok. Now look on your laptop for network places and you will see the printer on the network.

How many pc's, laptop's & printer's can i link up to belkin n1 vision wireless router model f5d8232-4

You can uplink a fairly good number of PCs or laptops with Belkin N1 as it supports high bandwidth. Keep in mind that upon adding every new PC, the overall bandwidth for the other PCs is reduced. If the PCs/ laptops do not require much bandwidth, you can connect / add more PCs to the network.
Generally, I have uplinked upto 10-15 clients to one router and the network worked just fine. It all depends upon the network environment and the bandwidth usage by each client PC. If the PCs are using just email and simple internet browsing (and remain idle for most of the time), you can add more clients to your network as not all the systems consume network resources at the same time.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

That is there way of saying they don't want to support that router or don;t want to accept their network is having trouble. If you do get another router and still have the same problems then they have no excuses.

My N1 Vision does the same thing, If you turn off the guest account, you should find its ok. Only when this Guest account is on, thats when it disconnects. Hope this helps. John

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac

This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.
