Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

Router has stopped responding

Up until yesterday my router was working fine. After being told of a lack of wireless connections in my house I was immediately going to try the power cycle for the router and modem, but before I did I noticed it was giving off signals in about 4 second intervals. Then the power light would flash for a quick second, then the modem light along with all 4 of the port lights would come on for a few seconds before going right back to the 4 seconds of wireless and port access.

I ran the ethernet cable directly to my computer from the modem... the modem itself is fine. It's the router that's not responding. After unplugging everything it's not even giving me the 4 second intervals anymore. Now the modem light and all of the port lights are on and stay on but not much else happens regardless of what's plugged into the ports. I can't bring the control panel up in the web browser or anything. I'm gonna jump the gun and assume that the thing just died on me but that was rather sudden so I'm hoping there's something more to it. Any help is appreciated.

    Oh *slaps head* I'd forgotten to mention I'd done like a million and one hard resets during the process but it just seemed like the problem was getting worse and worse.

    In any case, i think I got it situated... my adapter must've gotten a short somehow. I fished around my room and found a similar one, just to give it a shot. I didn't expect it to do anything but I originally got the idea when I plugged the router in today and the lights all faded out on me. So I tried the other cord and it seems like everything is alright, at least for the time being. All my ports are active and I've got my wireless signals again, so we're good. Thanks!

Hi,

The connection to the wireless router may fail due to various reasons.

Wireless adapter problems can also result in certain troubles due to updated driver.

When this entire problem occurs, you might not be able to establish the Internet Connection.

It can also arise if the modem is not connected properly to the router.

Then, if the IP or server names to the router are not specified correctly, then also you might have to face certain connection problems.

Hi,

I am really not sure as to why this happened, but however you may want to try a doing a hard reset (press the reset button on the back of router - you may use a paperclip for the same) with the power on. ensure that the reset is done for a minimum of 30 secs. once its done turn of the power for couple of seconds and then coonnect the modem to the router as it was earlier done and then do a power cycle of both the modem and the router. This should bring back life into the router. I suggest you to try this as there is no harm to any of the devices and is worth trying.

My Dell desktop using Windows XP can't connect to my Belkin 5720 router but my laptop still works?


This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).

I have a linksys wireless g router that worked fine until yesterday. Now it won't connect to the internet. I have a desktop wired to the router and a laptop used wireless.


Check if you can connect to the internet when hooked directly to the modem. If your connection works fine through the modem, then your router needs to be reconfigured.

Hi,

If you can access the configuration page of the router then check the IP configuration. Check WAN and LAN configurations. IP 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 will able u to access configuration page. Username and password hopefully be admin admin.

Wireless Router suddenly stopped working.


Try resetting the Linksys back to the factory defaults and configure it again.
Power up the router and press the pinhole RESET button on the back of the router for 30 sec
Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open a browser and enter to router's configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings, remove the LAN cable when configuration is completed.
You need to configure then wireless card in the computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings.

Connected to the router but router cannot connect


Assuming no other changes to your environment first try restarting everything - from the outside in. Start by restarting the cable/dsl modem, then the router, then the computer - allowing each to completely reset before going to the next.

You might also want to contact the provider to check availability in your area - in case there are known outages in your area.

Actiontec GT704-WG wireless connection not working


Hi,
you say it suddenly stopped working, if you can connect to the router via ethernet cable then try to access the router's web utility page and make sure your router is in mixed or G-only. If you can't still connect to the router through wireless then try restarting the Wireless Zero Configuration from windows. This is how it's made: Go to control panel and double-click "administrative tools", then double-click "services". You will see a list, scroll down to Wireless Zero Configuration and click "stop", you'll see a progress bar. After that click "start", you'll see another progress bar. Now try connecting to your router via wireless connection. If you still can't connect then repair the connection by right-clicking the wireless icon at the bottom right corner. Keep repairing until you connect.
Hope this works!
