Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
I had the same problem recently. After *much* frustration, here's what worked for me:
1. Unplug power to router for at least 10 seconds.
2. Connected the modem to the router, router ethernet connected to the computer (not wireless yet).
3. Typed the IP address of the router into an internet explorer window. The default is 192.168.2.1. When the page came up, it said "No connection" in big red letters in the top right corner. The goal here is to get that to change to "Connected" in green lettering...
4. Went to the "MAC Address" topic from the left hand column (it may ask for your router's password to do this -- even though I had set a password previously, it apparently lost it's memory and was back to the factory default setting of blank password).
5. Clicked "Clone" and then "Apply settings". Nothing obvious happened right away, but I think this is what fixed it for me...
6. Clicked on another heading from the left column of choices (can't remember which one). At this point, I got the green "Connected" letters in the top right corner! Success!
7. I'm having trouble re-enabling some of the security settings I had in place before (such as changing my router IP and local domain name) but for now I'm just happy to be able to connect.
Hope this helps you!
