    I am also facing same problem

  • jonseyi Mar 04, 2008

    The card and router are both Belkin N1, No's F5D8071 (card) and F5D8231. When I contacted belkin they told me to try changing my wireless security settings but i would have thought that if that was the problem then the mac would only run at 54 also.


    Regards

    Problem solved, changed the security authentication to wpa-psk and the encryption technique to aes instead of tkip. Now getting 300mbps steady with the n1 card on the xp laptop and 150 on the vista with the built in wireless.

These caards and wireless router can be tricky.  The problems you are encountering may have to do with the brand of the router and card.  If they are mde by diff. manufacturers or the speed on the box is different than the router, then it will be slower.  Is your card 801.1 or a tiny bit different?  Make sure they are the same number.  Otherwise, you may have to make do with the different speeds, or else, call your isp to upgrade

My N1 Vision does the same thing, If you turn off the guest account, you should find its ok. Only when this Guest account is on, thats when it disconnects. Hope this helps. John

Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router I cannot connect to Tiscali HELP


I had this with Bt Internet and this exact same router, you have to phone Belkin up and they give you a complete set of new settings that you manually have to put in during setup. If i remember rightly its a free phone number and the operator who answered spoke semi-english so not all bad, hope this helps.

Routers wireless display not luminated??


Hi!

This sounds like a hardware problem to me. I assume that you have installed the latest firmware (.15) on the box? If so, and if hte reset doesn't fix the problems, I would contact Belkin tech support. I would expect that they would put you through basic troubleshooting that you have likely already done, then perhaps RMA the unit.

Good luck and let me know if this helps!

Belkin N1 wireless router


FixYa's Maanita was no help whatsoever, and worse, a complete waste of time.  I called Belkin who's tech guided me to the problem in ten minutes, whereas I wasted an hour and a half with FixYa.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
