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!

Trying a add another desk top to an existing Belkin wireless G router at home. Right now there's a desk top and laptop working off this router.Try several times and still can't connect to internet.


Make sure the Belkin wireless is the only device directly connecting to your internet service provider's router/modem. Usually that port is labelled "WAN" or even "Internet". The Belkin should have extra ports/jacks for WIRED connections, right? You then connect the PC into the other remaining ports/jacks on the Belkin (if they're wired) or just use the wireless for the laptop if the laptop has wireless. After getting the wireless going, though, you should lock it down by using WPA encryption key if possible.

Belkin router gets me kicked off internet after 2-4 days.


It's probably temporary interference between the router and your computer.
1. Regrigerator, metal filecabinet, too many walls in between, etc.
2. Also, the router is using the same frequency (2.4GHz) as:
Microwave oven, cordless phone (not cell phone), Bluetooth headset
3. Move the router if you can to a higher location, and change the direction of the antennas (point the antennas in-line with the direction of the laptop).
4. If you obtain a different router, get one that uses "N" wireless, even tho your laptop uses "G", the "N" router can get around interference.
You do not have to change your "G" laptop to "N".

Wireless ready laptop not getting connected to internet through belkin router


You may want to check if the wireless switch is "ON"
on the laptop most wireless ready laptops has either a
button or toggle switch to enable the wireless radio..
if it's already enabled and you still cant connect to
the wireless network,try changing the wireless channel
from the router.

Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4)


hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected
