Question about Routers

1 Answer

Old hub For the first time in years since buying this hub do I have more than one computer that works. I will soon go wirelees and expand big time but for now does this little beige ( green front panel ) hub need software and does it slow down the downloads? How important is unplugging the power when putting in the ethernet cables?

The hub won't hurt your downloads from the internet. If it is a "hub" and not a "switch", it can affect transfer speeds between your pcs, but the impact probably won't be noticeable on a home network with only two pcs. You do not need to unplug the power to the hub when plugging/unplugging ethernet cables.

I have a wirelees router set up with four computers on it. WHEN I OPEN UP THE LINKSYS Adviser it wants to set up the system and does not show the computers or system , like I'm starting from scratch


On most original linksys firmware software is only aloud three wireless computer at a time. You need to know your version number on your linksys, and go to www.dd-wrt.com that is third party firmware. I put that on mine, and I can have up to 64 wireless computers on mine.

Up grading my system in a up stairs & down stairs house


Only use one router. At the point of entry of the internet service provider(dsl or cable) connect your wireless router.(prefer middle of house) If you need a repeater for your signal do so but I don't think you will need one with N technology.

WD My Book 1TB not recognised by belkin modem router USB storage


I have a work around for this.

In the detail of the Belkin manuals it says you can attach up to 4 USB storage devices via a USB HUB.

I had an old Hub so I Connected the HUB to the router and the Maxtor to the HUB --- It worked :-) It came up in a few seconds.

At first I powered the HUB but later took the power out of the hub and it still worked ;-} However when I used a different HUB it would not work without power to the HUB.

The HUB I use is an old Belkin 4 port Tetra Hub. The newer 7 port Belkin HUB (5 Rear 2 Top) only worked with the HUB powered.

Hope this helps untill Belkin Upgrade the Router sofrtare.

Having to reboot router at least once a week


Hi, First of All I would like to inform you about the Ideal Broad band Setup. An ideal BB Setup should be in the Following Way :-
Master socket (main telephone socket) << Filter << Router << Computer.
There should not be any other things connected in between. you can connect it to the secondary or extension socket as well but it depends. sometime you may face problem with it.
As you told that you have a Hub connected to the Router If there are multiple Ethernet ports on Router there is no use of it at all but if there is only 1 port then you can connect Hub after router.
Try this and I m sure you will not face any difficulties in future.
One more Advice for you If you face any Difficulty like yesterday Internet was working fine but today its not or similar ..... Just do this ........... Switch OFF your Router. wait for 40 sec. Switch ON your Router n Wait till you get All the lights Solid Green on the Router (not Flashing apart from Ethernet Light) Try Connecting to Internet in most of the cases it Works :)

Wirelees lost


If the wireles led is turned OFF, either the wireless is turned OFF in the router's settings or the wireless portion is not working anymore. You may contact contact motorolla for this or your ISP (if the ISP has provided the router) good luck
