Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

Acessing the router

I tried to set my router to act as an access point to another network. However after that I could not access the router via lan cable. I tried different computers, different cables, and any IP address that may have been assigned to the router, all without sucess. So I tried to reset the router to factory settings with the small button at the back. I still cannot get into it! I'm not sure if I am using the right IP address or if the router retained some of the previous settings. I cannot find the box or instructions that it came with either :( so I have not been able to find the original information.

    Thanks for the input guys! Turns out the cables were in the right places, but there were two other problems. The first was the reset didn't work - needed to hold it down for much longer and then it seemed to work. After that I was able to figure out the factory settings and get back in to fix the network. The second was that the ADSL connection wasn't coming through my modem and, after much experimentation, that was because the power adapter had been changed over by mistake. I'm not sure what the difference was between the two adapters (different brands) but once they were put back in their proper places the connection worked again.

I had the same problem and can definitely confirm that resetting to factory settings is the best and only option I had. Not sure if you need to contact your isp as theu need to update their end with new settings. Let us know how you get on.

Ok i know what you are doing. You have to run a cable from the first router out of one port to the access point labeled internet. But make sure you connect your access point to your computer first and set it up in the router setup page. I sell and use belkin myself and if you need any futher questions let me know

You will need a crossover cable to connect the two routers. They are different than standard LAN CAT cables and are available here:

How do i set bridge mode?


Depends if you need a wireless or wired bridge?

Here is some info for you.

Infrastructure Mode

With a wireless Access Point, you can operate the wireless LAN in the infrastructure mode. This
mode provides wireless connectivity to multiple wireless network devices within a fixed range or
area of coverage, interacting with wireless nodes via an antenna.

In the infrastructure mode, the wireless access point converts airwave data into wired Ethernet
data, acting as a bridge between the wired LAN and wireless clients. Connecting multiple Access
Points via a wired Ethernet backbone can further extend the wireless network coverage. As a
mobile computing device moves out of the range of one access point, it moves into the range of
another. As a result, wireless clients can freely roam from one Access Point domain to another and
still maintain seamless network connection.

Need basic step-by-step instructions on how to install my router.


To Configure the Router with Internet Access
Connect to one of the wireless router/access point's LAN Ethernet ports, turn off its DHCP server, and give the wireless router a static IP on your LAN:
  1. Connect a PC directly to a LAN port on the wireless router with an Ethernet cable.
  2. Power on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. Log in to the wireless router though a browser. (Usually 192.168.1.1, with User Name = admin and Password = password, unless you changed them from the defaults).
  5. Go to the LAN IP menu and disable the wireless access point’s DHCP server by unchecking Use router as DHCP server.
  6. Select LAN IP, and change the IP to 192.168.1.99.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings. You will lose the connection to the wireless router/access point , since its IP changed.
  8. Log in to the wireless router/access point with the URL: http://192.168.1.99
  9. Connect one of the wireless router's Local (LAN) ports to your existing network.
This completes the wireless router/access point configuration.
  • You can now log in to the wireless router/access point at its new address of http://192.168.1.99 and configure wireless features such as WEP and Access Control List
  • UPnP, DMZ, Port Forwarding, and Port Triggering are not used on the wireless router/access point, and it doesn't matter how they are configured.
  1. Configure the LAN IP address to be within the same subnet as your PCs.
    • Take care not to use an IP address already being used.
    • Limit the number of addresses in the DHCP range and assign an IP address outside of the range to the router you want to use as the Access Point.
  2. Disable DHCP on the wireless router/access point.
  3. Connect one of the LAN ports on the wireless router/access point to a LAN port on the Router.
  4. Configure the SSID and any security settings on the wireless PCs to match the wireless router/access point's SSID and security settings.
a. SSIDs must be the same on all wireless devices. (These are case-sensitive: netGEAR is not the same as NETGEAR.)
b. Tip: Make sure the wireless PCs can connect before configuring WEP, WPA-PSK, or other wireless encryption.

Just set it again via wired connection or LAN. Access it via Network Connections, and under Network connection look for for your LAN. Right click Local area connection,click properties, then highlight Internet Protocol(TCP/IP), click properties. Under General choose "Use the following IP Address ".

Input on IP address you should have router tutorial. Commonly its default is 192.168.1.1
Subnest Mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.2

Under it choose " Use the following DNS server address"
Input DNS address DNS of your ISP

Click ok

Netgear FWG114P Print Sever not functioning on upper level of LAN


if you set your dynalink's dhcp list up to a certain number (example: .1-.99). connect cat5 cable from dynalink lan port, into print server lan port. make sure print server can be setup as access point. if so, turn access point setting to on. make print server static ip address the next number outside of dhcp range (example: .100).

.100 ip address is the port number you should then be printing to, using a tcp/ip port.

if print server can be set up this way, then it now becomes wireless access point for all wireless devices. i am assuming, since you didn't mention it, that the dynalink is NOT wireless. if it is, the the print server just becomes another device on your existig network, taking the place of the network adapter the printer doesn't have. just set it up the same way you would set up another workstation on the network. except, make it static.

Want to use westell 327w as access point only


Yes, you can try to set up your network as follows:

  1. Unplug the second (Westell) router from anything and power it on.
  2. Reset your second router. Press and hold the Reset button on the router for 10-30 seconds. This will return the router to its factory settings and avoid any complications from the set-up you might have had when the router was being used as a primary router
  3. Connect one computer to the router. Do not connect the second router to the first at this time!
  4. Configure the second router at http://192.168.1.1/ (Check you manual for details. Usually the username is "admin" and the password is either blank or "password".)
  5. Change the LAN IP address of the second router from 192.168.1.1 to a free address within your LAN (see what IP range is used by your first router! If it using the same range (192.168.1.xxx) then 192.168.1.2 should be O.K.). The address you change to (192.168.1.2) must not be used by any other device with a static IP address in your network nor should be assigned by the DHCP server your network. A default Linksys router uses 192.168.1.1 itself and the DHCP server assigns 192.168.1.100-149.
  6. Turn off the DHCP server on the second router. (This is important, otherwise you end up with IP conflicts!)
  7. Save your settings.
  8. Unplug the computer from the second router.
  9. Connect an Ethernet cable from a numbered LAN port of the first router to a numbered LAN port of the second router. Do not use the Internet/WAN port on the second router!
  10. Start up the first router if necessary and reboot the second one as well.
  11. Voila!
The only problem I can see here is that your first router - now in charge of security - does not see your wireless clients as wireless, because they connect via an Ethernet port. Because the second router is connected via a LAN port, it is not using the router functions (DHCP, security, etc.) That might be ok with you - I'm just pointing it out.

If this doesn't work for you, just come back here, leave a comment and we take it from there.

Good luck and thanks for rating!

D-LINK DI-514 LAN Ports not working


  1. Connect a cable from your PC to one of the four plugs. Not the WAN port.
  2. Setup the wireless the way you want it.
  3. Then give this router a different IP, like 192.168.0.2
  4. Then you have to disable the DHCP server in the router (keep in mind now you have to set your desktop or laptop that is conencted to it to a static IP to still communicate with the router)
  5. Once this is done just plug you existing network into one of the four ports. Not the WAN port.
  6. It will now act as a wirelessa access point.
Althoug this is doable it is not recommended as this router is a pile of **** and the wireless is crappy.

I would suggest a dedicated wireless access point.

Using 2 routers


You may use your wireless router as an Access Point:

1. Connect one of the LAN port of the Belkin to a LAN port on your Voyager. If the link light on both side are not coming on, try using a cross-over cable. Important: Do not connect anything to the WAN port of your Belkin.

2. Configure the LAN IP address of your Belkin in the same subnet as the Voyager. By example, if your Voyager has 192.168.0.1, you may give your Belkin 192.168.0.3.

3. Disable the DHCP server on the Belkin since the Voyager most likely already has one.

4. Configure the Wireless parameter of your Belkin as you would normaly do.

Using this method, your wired and wireless devices will be able to communicate together since they will be on the same network and your Belkin will act as a bridge between the wired and wireless network.
