Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

Connecting a new wireless notebook to my existing Belkin 802.11g

Hi guys, I am currently running 2 computers (1 desktop PC & 1 notebook PC) off my Belkin 802.11g (F5D7230 - 4) router. I am running a cable connection, with the desktop PC connected via one of the 4 ports on the router. My notebook is connected wirelessly to the router. I have secured it using WEP 128bit encryption. Everything is working great. I am about to purchase another wireless LAN (802.11g) notebook and want to add this to my existing network arrangement. My question is when I power up the new notebook and turn on it's wireless LAN, will it search for and pick up my existing network? Because it is a protected network, will all I need to do to get connected, is enter my WEP Encryption code? Will it be that easy? I just want to buy the new notebook, charge it and connect..without any problems. Have I missed anything I need to do..? Thankyou. Jamie Australia.

    Thankyou very much. I just checked my router confiq and my ssid broadcast is on, so if all goes well the new notebook will search for available networks (which should include mine!) and I'll be able to connect by inputing my WEP code. My new computer is running Vista, while the other 2 are both XP. Will I still be able to share files etc between Vista and XP on my network? I've never used Vista but I've heard it's not as good when it comes to sharing files etc on networks. Is that true? Jamie

All the steps you have mentioned is You are correct..you can connect by configuring the WEP code. but if you have disabled the ssid broadcast then you have to add your access point(FSD7239-4) manually when the wireless discovery fails to detect.
And also refer the manual of the Notebook or wireless adaptor' manual for how to configure the same. (Check the help files of the client configuratin utility if anything installed if not you can refer how to use Wireless Configuration in windows.)

With Regards,

Dell dimension 3000 won't see wireless network


Hi, I've jst been looking on the web at the Mimo routers, you may find this article interesting, it may help even though its a couple of years old?

Pay attention to part about 802.11n compatibility?
Perhaps try changing the IEEE standard on the router to 802.11g in the set up pages, as it may be set at 802.11n, which your older wireless card will not see.

As to the acquiring ip address message, try using a static ip address, here's a good guide:-

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop


The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "192.168.2.1". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

As long as the computer you are connecting has the capability to connect in some form, wireless or wired, you will not have to run the web utility again. However, if you are currently connecting your laptop wirelessly, and you are connecting your other computer with a wired connection, you must make sure that the wired network is not disabled.

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.

Pc connection problems


Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
