Belkin FSD7230-4 Router

Hi, my problem is probably very basic. My friend has bought the above router and we can't get it installed on her computer. The instructions that came with it were awful. She has a separte modem, which at the moment has the telephone line going into and one other point. Is is possible for anyone to tell me where to put the telephone cable. I have followed the instructions but it doesn't tell you where the telephone cable goes.

Re: belkin FSD7230-4 Router


This is just a WAN router with wireless and 4 port switch.

It is not a DSL Modem.

In order to use this you need to use a Ethernet based CPE and connect the saem to this device.

Please find more information at the following URL under specification.

What i have to do if its asking for a PIN Number when connecting a Belkin...

Hi Friends,

When you are connecting the Belkin router in Wireless,if it asks for PIN Number then please follow the below mentioned standard steps,

Step 1:Connect the belkin router to any one of your computer with an enternet cable.

Step 2:Open Internet Explorer and type and click on Enter button in the keyboard.

Step 3:Now you will be able to see the belkin router page

Step 4:On your left side click on Wifi Protected Setup (WPS),now it will ask for password leave it blank and click on Submit.

Stpe 5:Now Change the WPS (Wifi Protected setup) to disable and click on Apply Changes.

Step 6:Now Try to connect the Wireless Networks in your wireless computer,it wont ask for PIN Number.

The above mentioned steps are the standard steps for the this problem.This is done because by default the belkin router's will be enabled with 2 security features so we have to disable any one of this feature.If you disable this then you wont have any Problem in the belkin router.

I had to put my computer back to factory settings and now my Belkin wont go on wireless.It does work if i plug cable in.Is there anything i can do?

I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Key, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

Thanks for using Fixya.

On my windows vista, after i installed the cd; i am not able to setup because a window pops up saying that the "setup application/belkin router has stopped working"


To avoid the pop up Kindly right click on the Belkin router monitor Icon in the system tray & click exit. To avoid it happening all together, Go to control pannel & click on add / remove programs & unistall the router monitor software. The router would still work in the absence of the router monitor software.

Hi I am using reliance broadband. They have

Easy, if your modem is connected to your computer right now and internet is working all you need to do is connect your LAN line to your belkin router. the connection should say input, or Internet. after that you will need another LAN wire (These look like telephone cables but the jack plug is larger and will only fit a lan connection on your router or computer) Connect the second wire to the line 1 or outout 1 from your router, to your pc in the slot where the other cable was connected. your internet signal should work.... on your mobil find any available network and log in to your belkin router.

that should do it.... if you haven't set up your internet connection, do that first by installing the drivers for the modem provided by your provider and then complete the process above.
