    This is how you reset your router.....

    Reset the router to factory default With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will flash and this will restore the router to factory default. Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1. This should show the router status page with the default settings.

    How to setup new router:
  • 1 Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note of the user name and password.
  • 2 Unplug your router and your cable or DSL modem.
  • 3 Plug your modem to your Belkin router's "WAN" port. Connect your computer to one of your Belkin router's numbered ports.

    Can't connect to the modem


    If you have a Cable Modem try doing a MAC cloning on the router and check the Firmware update, if you have a DSL connection try changing the LAN ip Address (Eg:- from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1) or if you have PPPOE then use the correct PPPOE username and password on the router and try to set it up, if that dosent work then we will take it from that point.

    Reset my belkin router now i can't connect to


    if you truly reset your router then you may have to reconfigure it. If your belkin router is also your dsl modem or cable modem then you will have to call your ISP provider and get your user id and password to start with.
    I have a feeling this device does double as your modem since you now cannot connect. Most routers will work as a router right out of the box. However if your modem is seperate then it may expect your router to have a different subnet for its IP address then the default. Try plugging your computer directly into the modem if that is the case. If it works then just reset the routers IP address to be on the same subnet.

    I just switched from cable modem to dsl modem..dsl modem gets on the internet when connected directly to computer..once connected to router doesnt connect to internet


    Your new ISP is DSL. the router was working before with the cable modem. The settings for the cable and DSL ISP are different. Now your computer is working when you connect it directly to the DSL modem. that means the modem is working.
    The DSL modem works on 2 different modes.
    You will need to check which mode is your modem working on and according to the settings of your modem you will need to set up the router.
    To change the settings of the router, you will need to open the set up page of the router.

    So if you connect the computer directly to the modem , it works .
    That means your modem is working properly. Your ISP is DSL connection. Now connect the modem to the router and the computer to the router. Open the router xet up page and change the settings of the router according to the type of connection you have.
    There are 2 types of connection in DSL.
    DHCP and PPPOE .

    Modem Light Flashing, Internet Light Off, No Internet Connection


    Hi, Here is your solution.
    Please ensure the proper physical connection from modem to router and to the computer as mentioned on the box and make your all lights are on modem.After that turn on the router,if your have a cable modem, you can very well go for a hard reset,that it is at the back of your router you would see a reset button which is a button inside a hole. Please hold the button for 20 secs with power on router and 20 seconds without power continuously for 3mins (remember to hold the reset button through out 3 mins while plugin and plugout the power cord of the router and use pin or pen to hold the button). After this check out the lights on your router, lan light, internet ,power and modem should be solid.Else you can call the customer service number on the product box, they will assit you very well,ITS A TOLL FREE NUMBER.

    Belkin F5D8236-4 won't connect to the internet.


    this issue mostly comes with dsl connections..

    check whether the dsl modem is in bridge mode or pppoe method

    if it is in bridge mode ask the isp vendor to change the modem into bridge mode which prompts you for username & password

    try this it resolves the issue..

    Belkin modem


    your modem is not the same...... the red/green arrows does not apply as it is for the other device

    you need to log into you modem (the quick setup guide will tell you how to do this)

    the status page will tell you if you are connected on adsl (there is also a link light on the modem itself which goes solid on (not flashing) when connected properly

    if on the status page it is not reading as connected you need to check your logon info and check the logs to see why it is not connecting..

    if it reports that it is connected, then there are a few system properties that you need to check.

    open Internet properties (right click on intenet explorer, choose internet options) in the connection menu, choose "Never dial a connection" press Apply, then press "LAN settings" button and tick box "Automatically detect settings"

    close Internet explorer then open internet explorer, it should spend a few seconds checking your settings then it should get out to the internet..

    job done...
