Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

Installation problem I am trying to setup my new wireless router. I have Dell desktop and IBM ThinkPad laptop. Windows XP on both. According to lights router is working correctly, but when I run the setup assistant on the desktop during step 1 I get this message: "The Setup Assistant is not able to connect to the Router via any of the network adapters on this computer. Please go back to the Quick Installation Guide and make sure all physical connections are correct (which I have done and I have also rebooted my computer with no success). Also, please power cycle the Router and make sure that the Router has power and that the appropriate lights are on(see guide)", which I have done several times with no success. I called Belkin, got no help, I told the guy about the above message, and he says that since I have an internet connection dont worry about the message, then hung up in my face!! Any suggestions?

Hi,

Initially, I would suggest that you connect either your Dell desktop and IBM ThinkPad laptop using a wired LAN cable to any of the Ethernet Port 1~4 of the router and verify that your PC is set to Auto obtain an IP address. Thereafter pls go through the setup procedures again.

If this is how you have connected your router and PCs, pls post back that we can figurre something else.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I would enable/disable your mac address clone. Do the opposite of what ever the setting is. You should be able to the setting on the main setup page. If it does not fix it, change it back. I know that can cause a connection to quit working if the setting is not correct.

Have you unisntalled all the Linksys sofftware through add/remove software. I had a similar problem with an IOGEAR Bluetooth transceiver, I did the setup from the CD, my laptop (Dell C640) blue screened each time. I uninstalled all the IOGEAR software and my laptop stopped blue screening. I never installed the software for a wireless router, I always use the WEB interface and my life is my simplier.

Setting up and configuring networks


The main problem on your setup is your router. This BEFSR41 doesn't have wi-fi or wireless capability. You can only go online on your laptop if you connect it hardwired to the router just like your desktop. You must purchase a wireless router if you want your laptop to work wirelessly

Trying to set up a network printer with DELL TRUEMIBILE 2350...please help


using windows xp on all the computers, when you connect to the printer windows should automatically install drivers.

1. Goto My Computer, Click My Network Places (Explorer Bar).
2. Click View Workgroup Computers (Explorer Bar)
3. Find the computer that has the printer physically connected to it, open it
4. Find the printer and right click it!
5 Select Connect... and wait for the drivers to install.

this should install the print drivers and install the printer on your computer. the printer should now be available in print dialogs i.e. word etc etc and from the Control Panel > Printers window.

Setup problems with DELL 2350 router


sometimes windows messes the whole network up when using the set up wizard, you need to go to the properties of your wireless cards and check on the TCP/IP line that the radio button that says obtain ip address automaticaly is ticked. Go into the routers properties menu and check that DHCP is enabled and so allow the router to allocate ip addresses automatically, although you may need to do this via an rj45 cable and not wireless to begin with.
