    We cannot download on the pc either.

    Yes theres a wire going from modem(box) to router and one going from router to computer. We can go on any site perfectly but when it comes to downloadin a file it dont work. My bro has tried to download msn etc on his laptop but it fails.

    When it fails to download it just stops. No error message or anything

    If i plug the wire from modem into pc it works fine, thats what we have to do when we want to download. So would a different router work?

During the download process on the laptop, keep an eye on the signal strength of the wireless network. If the signal seems to drop out at the time of the download failure, I'd recommend disabling the power management of the wireless card.

    Is the PC directly wired to the router with an ethernet cable? Can you access any web pages (ie.,,, etc.?) If you can access those pages, try to download file and when it fails, try accessing one of those sites again. We're trying to determine if the issue is with the router, modem, etc.

    When the download fails, do you get a specific error message? Then next time you try to download something and it fails immediately try to open another website (ie. just to make sure your connection has not dropped out on you.

    Now that is an interesting symptom. Without seeing the router's settings, it appears your router is fowling things up. If you want to dump the belkin router, I prefer the Linksys WRT54G or WRT54GS routers. However if you don't want to swap routers, you can try resetting the routers settings to factory default and seeing if that changes anything.

This is not a great router. It might work for various smaller tasks but if you want to do heavy duty downloads with it it's not going to cut the mustard. This is not an uncommon problem with home level routers. I would recommend going on newegg and reading reviews before you buy a new one. broadbandreports is also a good forum for reviews. Good luck.

I have to keep restarting my Belkin router.

hi! check the settings of your router, some routers have a settings that if it is idle for a certain period of time it will auto disco.. disable this option and if this problem wont fix, try to download the firmware of your router there is a possibility that the firmware of this router still have bug and ur still using the default firmware since u bought it..

My belkin router wont work :(

If you access your router, look at the wireless settings, you may need to change a setting to allow b + g connections, your laptop may have a 'b' adapter.

Cant download files

It could be the speed in general.

I would try contacting your ISP check your speeds.

Could you go to and post your results here.

Next, what browser are you using when you download, and once u start the download are you closing that page that you started the download on?
