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

1 Answer

Router cant b found

I have a belkin F5D7230-4 model i recently tried to reconfigure the router and inadvertently press the wrong command button, i cant remember what button it was but since then, when i try to access the router the browser tells me the connection was refused, or the connection times out. I have tried to reinstall the router but when the setup disc searches for the router connection, it cannot be found. Oddly my computer can still receive an internet connection through the router but my x-box 360 cannot, the x-box is the reason i bought the router

Locate the reset button on the rear of the router.
Should be below the antenna and recessed use a paper clip or similar to hold in for 10 secs.
This will reset the router back to factory defaults.
Type in into your browser and you should get the routers setup page. Click the login button, no password is required. You can set this up yourself once in the router setup.
Be aware this router is NOT on the Xbox live supported list.
Check link below for supported Live Routers.
If you have only bought thi recently get it swapped out if you cannot connect to live once reset.
Let me know how you get on.

    Just a small note.

    Disable firewall in your operating system and use the one on the router.

    You will have a lot less issues with your network.

I changed the security settings on the router and there the wrong settings for my computer and now i cant connect to the router to change the settings

if you can no longer connect to your router, the only thing to regain access to it and reconfigure is to manually reset it to default settings. To do this, you need to press the reset button/switch (or some models have dip pins hidden in a small hole) for 30 seconds while the router is turned ON. After 30 seconds, release the button and all your previous and faulty settings will be removed. Follow the documentation packed with your router for the default user name / password to access your router's admin page.

Need to re-set the security key can not remember password

Press and hold the reset button for five seconds, then release. When the Power/Ready light becomes steady again, the reset is complete. This will reset your router to the default password, which is no password (empty). It will also erase your router configuration, so you will have to reconfigure the router.

Well as i understand.
You need to do a hard reset of your router and reconfigure your router.Then try to access your internet in case it work's good in case it not.
get in to a command propmt (run>cmd).type ipconfig
check the ip address.whether you getting a default ip address or not.if yes then, type ping any website name press enter.It will give you a turn around time that means your compuetr is communicating with your router. then try to open a website on internet Explorer. In case it not work run a small winsock.
in cmd window.

Hope this will resolve your issue.

What is the default password of belkin router


The Belkin Router does not come with a factory set password or username. I phoned Belkins's 800 number today and found it out. They told me to reset the router by using a paper clip and holding down the button for ten seconds or so.

You can try password - Admin ( usually works on old models ). Make sure to keep User name Blank.

Hope i helped.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
