Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4 shuts down desktops with gigafast g wireless adapters

I just bought a Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4. It works on all the laptops in the house, but I have 2 desktops with Gigafast wireless adapters plugged in the usb's in the back. Both on startup displayed a blue screen that indicated an error and the machines would not start until I reboot with the wireless adapters disconnected. Actually, the older desktop won't start, just the newer one. The older now comes up with a message saying that a config file is corrupt or missing. Is this a known issue?

    Thanks for your response. It's a WLAN 11g usb adapter with # 0560 printed on it in large letters.

    Who are they manufactured by?

    This fault is almost certainly caused by the USB adapters and not the router. What model are they?

Make sure that the computers in error are set to DHCP for the TCP/IP properties. For the computers to see each other, the workgroup has to be the same on all of them. Each computer must have its own unique name.

For computers to be able to access each other, the computer's firewall has to be set to allow, or be turned off. The disk drives have to be set to share.

The router should have a NAT firewall. It should be turned on by default. As long as the NAT is turned on, it is safe to have the computer's firewall turned off and still be connected to the net.

I have a Belkin F5D7234-4 v3 wireless router. I was wondering, is there any way to either upgrade to a different firmware version such as the v4, or just a simple way to make it more a wifi receiver?


You cannot upgrade v3 to v4 or v5. Belkin routers are junk, because once they come out with a new version you will never see a fix for your router. You have to go buy a new router if you want better access to the routers settings. You are better off buying another brand like I did. Belkin blows.

Hi, we have a Belkin wireless router and the 'world' light has disappeared. We have been in contact with our service provider and all seems to be ok on that side. I understand there is a lifetime warranty...


Hi Nenia, could please give us the model number of the wireless router again from Belkin.
Second , are you trying to connect to the wireless router, using a wire or using the wirless only.



Thanks

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Trying to create a bridge with two routers


You do not need a bridge if you are using a wireless adaptor on your pc in the other room. Just set up the Belkin Plus router to the WEP security settings you want and make sure the pc wireless usb adaptor has the same settings as the router. You should be good to go. Good Luck.

What is a desktop card? Belkin Wireless G Router questions too.


The only thing you need is a network connection in the back of your computer if you are going wired or a wireless adaptor for each device if you want to connect that way.

I understand the Wii has wireless built into it but you might want to check on that.

Hooking linksys to gigafast


There are some question's that should probably be asked before we begin. Generally a wireless adapter or network card is present in a computer to allow it to access a wireless router which is connected to an internet service provider (generally a dsl connection through a phone line or a cable modem from your cable provider. Your request seems to be to get a computer to talk to a wireless router to talk to a wireless router to talk to your internet service provider (dsl or cable). I will assume after reading this that you probably have or will get a wireless adapter for the computer to talk to one or both of the wireless routers you appear to have. Wiring two wireless routers in the same house may be useful if the home is large or the wireless routers operate on different bands (a, b, g or frequencies) and you have different computers that require the different bands. however both wireless routers are in my experience connected to each other using a wire. Once we clarify the above we can probably address the connectivity issues for the devices you require.
