Question about Belkin (F5D72304F5D7000) Router

1 Answer

Disconnecting from the internet

I bought a new Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4 (model No: 1.00.10) (Serial No: 12736823301546) in Jan. 2008, for £71.00.
It has recently started to switch itself of overnight, and shows the amber light far right. I am required to reboot the router each morning in order to get back on line. I am sure this is not normal.
I am networking using an NTL World cable modem connection, the Router is connected to the modem and an XP 2000 desktop computer. I am running an HP Vista Pavilion laptop wired some 7 feet away from the router next door.
I am downloading utorrent movies overnight, is this the reason for my problem?

    Thank you Ribstein for that rapid reply.
    The modem light on my router flashes amber and back to blue, intermittently. The power supply I am using for both router and cable modem comes through a 4 way adapter connected to a single socket mains supply, is that not correct.

Check to make sure your using the correct power supply. I have seen people mix up their modem power supplies with their router and it do something similar to that.

My wireless router modem wireless signal keep disconnecting


Assuming it has been running well in the past, it is likely there is some interference coming from another wireless source, most likely a cordless phone that you may have recently acquired.

Try to re-initialise the modem and see if there is any difference.

Installation of belkin router failed


You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Clickon wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have recently bought a Belkin Wireless Router and I am unable to connect to the Internet on my laptop. What do I need to do to connect my laptop to the internet using the Belkin Wireless router?


your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

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.
