Log onto the router to see if the entire box is hanging or only the conection to the internet.

Check for a 'Auto Reconnect Setting" in the router.

If there is alot of Noise on your DSL lines it could disconnect without re-connecting.

Also check to make sure you have all your filters installe don the phone lines....

Hi Craig,

First I suggest you remove the second IP address as this is your public address most likely that should not be posted in the open online for all to see. That being said, have you attempted to perform a full reset on the router? This is performed by holding the small pinhead button on the back of the router down for about 30 seconds while plugged in. Once done you can set the router back up like you did when you first purchased it.

You can find the manual for your router as well as possible firmware updates on the following page. (Have your model # handy!)

I am using a Belkin Wireless G Plus Router connected to my Virgin cable. I have had no problems with the router for 3 years however in the last month it stops working. To reconnect it needs powered off and...

From your explanation what i got is the router is not working and needs to be rebooted to start working. There is no changes done into the configuration.

In this case i suspect some software bug in the router.
I will recomend to backup your configuration and then reset once the router.
Remember if you reset the router the router will go to factory default settings and will loose all the configuration. you need to reconfigure that from the configuration backup you have taken recently.

I lost my manual for hooking up the router to my computer and need to know how to connect it up so i can use it.

Plug your telephone line into the jack in the back.
plug a cat 5 cable form your router to your computer and turn the router on.
you may need to install the router software which came with the device.
when your network asks for a wep key, you will find it on the rear or bottom of your router. it's a good idea to write it down and keep it handy. ok you should be good to go.

I have this router Belkin G Router Model :

belkin routers are compatible with all ISPs.... all that it requires is an ethernet cable that should come from ISP, either directly or through modem... so if your virgin connection gives you an ethernet port in their modem, you can configure the belkin router accordingly...

Cannot connect ipod touch to the internet

Ok this is weird but i have had this problem.
In my case my password ends in a number so i hit send while still in the number screen. Apparently going back to the letter screen before hitting send caused the password to work.
Good Luck

Log into your router via web browser (usually routers IP is The default password is usually "admin" and leave the username blank, admin again. Another way to figure out what IP address is assigned to your router is to click START > RUN > Type CMD and hit enter. At command prompt type IPCONFIG. The DEFAULT GATEWAY is the IP address that is assigned to your router.
From main configuration page, click WIRELESS
For security mode, choose WEP
Keep your default Transmit Key to (1) and set your encryption level to either 64 bits or 128 bits. (128 bits is more secure then 64 bit and much harder to crack.
Now you can either create a passphrase which will automatically generate key values or you can set your own key values. (You only have to set KEY 1)
IMPORTANT Then write the key down so when ya wanna log on from wherever ya enter key and ya can enter.

can you get a phone number?

the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up

Connect the modem to the WAN port of the router, then connect the computer that was connected to the cable modem to any port on the router. After you recieve an address from the router you will then connect to the belkin setup page. go to IE and connect to I think the belkin routers password is blank. After going to the setup page on IE you will go to the mac address clone, click clone computer address. Then reboot the router, or renew the wan dhcp. Good luck.
