Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Connecting to World of Warcraft Server

I have been working on this problem for about 2 weeks now. I have a Dell Inspirion 1501, with a Belkin/G router. I have installed WoW, and I have tried forwarding the ports on the desktop that is connected to the router within the router configuration. I have been to WoW's support page over and over again to make sure that I am forwarding the right ports TCP and UDP. Still, I have no luck my laptop will not connect to the server. I get the message "unable to connect to socket." I have even went as far as opening the same ports on my laptop, no luck. I have a suspicion that Windows Vista my be part of problem. I hope you can give me some help here, I have gotten to the point were I might just go buy a new desktop and an linksys router.

You need to disable UAC in Vista. User Account Control
This is the bit of Vista that gives you all the annoying pop ups asking if you want to do this etc.

    Can you try to connect directly thro your ISP's modem.

    If you can connect it is a router issue if not then it is more likely a Vista issue.

    Try a direct connect and let me know the outcome.

My belkin keeps losing internet connection..i have to unplug everything and hope it comes up..says the dns server is not connecting...can you tell me why this keeps happening?


Whenever you're asking for technical help with an electronic device, please try to give device details. e.g. model and version numbers, at minimum. Belkin model numbers typically start with F#D (like F5D, F7D, F9D, et cetera)...

You should check Belkin's web site for firmware update availability to your router. I see at least 2 different models on their website that they call "Basic Wireless Router" and manufacturer firmware is generally not interchangeable between models.

If a newer firmware is available for your router, consult
http://www.belkin.com/us/support-article?rnId=497 for instructions on how to upgrade the firmware. Your profile doesn't tell us where in the world you are, and you didn't mention that info, so there's no way for anyone that replies to localize the links for you (that's why I posted a link to Belkin's USA support site).

All configuration can be done with the router GUI.
Firewalls: Server Side Having a server side firewall is the typical configuration on many systems. There is only one method for doing this, whether you use telnet or ssh: map a port to be forwarded to the server in the firewall router. It is not advised that you use telnet from the Internet for security reasons; that is usually why you have a firewall.Decide which method of connectivity will be allowed, and determine what port you will use to forward to this service. If there is only one server involved, you can use port 22 for ssh or 23 for telnet and forward them straight through to the server. But if there are several servers involved and they do not have public IP addresses, you will need to pick different ports on the firewall router and let the router forward those ports to the different internal servers.

Just a question. I have a Dell Inspirion 5101 running Vista Home Ed. I'm considering buying a F5D9010 notebook adapter G. I'll be connecting through a Belkin F5D8236 wireless router. Are there any...


I'm running windows vista but on a desktop. I have my computer hooked up with a USB wireless adapter that i got at Wal-mart. i have not had any compatibility problems with vista and my wireless network. so i don't think you should have any problems.

I hope this information was helpful, if you have any comments or questions please reply back to this post and i will try to help as much as i can

Hello, My roommate and I play World of Warcraft...


I would reset the router to default settings and use the good version of the firmware. OR delete your existing internet setup and then re-add it (do this if you didnt factory default your router before upgrading firmware)

My Belkin n1 router disconnects from telstra every 2 hours - exac


This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours. The solution is to go to www.belkin.com and download and install the pre-release firmware which is supposed to fix "A problem where the router could drop some connections on 2-hour intervals" among other things.

Dell Inspiron 1501 cant find Belkin 2000


Do you mean wired or wireless?
If wireless, can you detect other wireless signal or ssid? If not, make sure your wireless is enabled. If yes, make sure the wireless light is lit on your router.

Router


Can both devices be connected to the router and surf the web seamlessly? Do you have DHCP (router automatically assigns IP addresses) enabled or do you manually set your computers' IP addresses?
