Hmmm...when you say the wireless flickers on and off, is that on the belkin unit, or on your computer?

    ok..that's a good thing. the wireless will pulse the signal network, on a frequent or infrequent basis. Does it work ok? if not, that means that the signal is going on and off..does it still deliver a signal even when the light is blinking?

    also, did you get a user manual with that router, when you purchased it?

    ok..so...can you connect to modem directly? I'd like to know if it's just a router issue, or a modem to router signal issue

I bought a Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8236-4 v2 and changed my internet provider a few months later and I have lost the Installation CD, can I install it without the CD?


Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.

I have bought a belkin wireless g router. my pc is virgin broadband i need to connect an aspire lap top. where do i plug in to make the router work


Hello,

If you have your pc connected directly to your Virgin Broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.

Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.

After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.

Thanks

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

I purchased a Belkin N1 Wireless USB adapter recommended to me by PC World but it is not working correctly. It WILL locate my network but will NOT allow internet access on it. I did ask specifically in the...


Hi there!

Theoretically, it should work with each other. I didn't find any documentation at Belkin's site that states the N1 USB adapter being not compatible with 3rd party devices like your Netgear router.

From what I know is N-Draft's wireless technology should be backwards compatible with both wireless-B and wireless-G devices.

1. Do you have other working wireless devices at your network during that time that you have the N1 USB adapter?
2. Were you able to connect to your wireless network? If Yes, what was your IP address at the wireless computer incase you had the chance to check it?

Maybe you can try to inquire with Belkin about what you've encountered with their device for clarification.

Hope this helps!
