I cannot connect anything else;

I have my main computer attached to my Belkin internet box;

But when I try to connect the laptop it doesn't go onto it's seperate port
it tries to use the same port as my computer causing an immense aggrovating laggish experience for everybody..

My playstation three doesn't stay connected for long to the internet.
And when I try to play games... with the same graphics as a game boy advanced.. it freezes and lags..

Any suggestions please?

You can set the IP of the laptop to a permanant one so that it does not try and take the same one that the desktop has.. As for the Playstation sounds like a memory error

Try resetting the router.
To reset the Belkin back to the default settings -
Press and hold the pinhole RESET button at the back of the router and then power for at least 15 secs. Then release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

Hello, I do not know much about troubleshooting internet connections. I just rely on Microsoft's "Diagnose Problem" option and most often than not, it works. But when I replaced our old...


Thank you for using fixya.

Being that your other computers in the network are working properly, you should switch the ip settings on your comnputer to automatically detect. That way your computer does all the routing and ip setting,

After you have set that back. Remove the power of your router, remove the power of your modem, and restart your computer.

Once your computer is back up, turn on modem, then the router.

It sounds very simple, but in most cases, it solves the problem.


Hope this information is helpful

Belkin router can't connect to internet


This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

Do you have a cordless phone? If so and it operates on the 2.4 gig frequency it can cause interference. Bluetooth devices and even some cell phones can interfere as well and believe it or not....microwaves sometimes can as well.
The 2.4 gig frequency is a very crowded area and there are a lot of factors that can cause you to drop off line. Try to take note of any of these factors that might be in use or present at the times you are dropping and you might find the root of your problem.

Good Luck and please rate this info....

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

Belkin router


I'm guessing that your laptops are using a wireless connection. If this is the case the first time you enter the wireless security key (password) it will be stored in the laptop so you don't need to enter it again.

To connect to the router, you need to open its associated web page which you will normally find by typing the routers IP address into the address bar in Internet Explorer. The usual default address for a Belkin router is 192.168.2.1.

Once you connect to the router you should be able to access all the security settings from the Belkins main menu.
