SOURCE: Loss of Connectivity

Unless it was installed by the big box retailer when they "optimized" the laptop. I did not install any additional Linksys software on the laptop. Let me double check to see how it is connecting, if I am not mistaken it is using Windows built in wireless management. (it also looks like there was some preloaded Sony software to allow it to be used in a wireless environment) I am wondering if both are trying to connect at the same time?

I know that it has worked previously, which frequently happens even though it may not technically correct. When software is changed on one or more computers, or seemingly, enough time passes, things go haywire.

Your cable modem connects you to the outside world, it assigns IP addresses by DHCP (if enabled), to each connected device, so does a wireless router. If you connect the WAN port on the wireless router to a regular port on the cable modem/router, your wireless router will recieve an IP from the first router. Then it will assign addresses similarly which could be the same range, This is known as double NATting. Since you connected the the wireless router as a hub, it only assigns wireless addresses, not wired ones. Since they may be in the same range, this could work, but not reliably.

Here is what to do;

  1. Do nothing to the primary cable router.
  2. Connect a laptop or other computer to one of the lan ports of the wireless router. Nothing should be connected to the other ports.
  3. Manually assign this PC the address 192.168.1.2
  4. Using your web browser on the PC, connect to http://192.168.1.1
  5. The default login is left blank, password is admin.
  6. Network Setup tab
    The Network Setup section changes the settings on the network connected to the Router’s Ethernet ports. Disable the DHCP server setting
    Wireless Setup is performed through the Wireless tab.
    At the bottom of the page click SAVE SETTINGS
  7. The Setup Tab - Advanced Routing
    This tab is used to set up the Router’s advanced functions. Operating Mode allows you to select the type(s) of advanced functions you use. Dynamic Routing will automatically adjust how packets travel on your network. Static Routing sets up a fixed route to another network destination.
    Operating Mode. Select the mode in which this Router will function. Since another Router exists on your network, select Router. When Router is chosen, Dynamic Routing will be enabled.
    Dynamic Routing. This feature enables the Router to automatically adjust to physical changes in the network’s layout and exchange routing tables with the other router(s). The Router determines the network packets’ route based on the fewest number of hops between the source and the destination. This feature is Disabled by default.
    From the drop-down menu, you can also select LAN & Wireless, which performs dynamic routing over your Ethernet and wireless networks. You can also select WAN, which performs dynamic routing with data coming from the Internet. Finally, selecting Both enables dynamic routing for both networks, as well as data from the Internet.
    At the bottom of the page click SAVE SETTINGS
  8. Connect wireless WAN connector to one one cable router lan ports
The PC should be changed back to DHCP for its IP and everything should work normally. All PCs on the system should get their IP address from the primary router only and should be visible to each other.

Good luck!

Use Belkin f5d7230-4 as a wireless access point


Hi Druid,

Based upon what I've read regarding and experience with the F5D7230-4 is it will only work with another F5D7230-4 or F5D7231-4, F5D7130, F5D7132 and this are all Belkin products as well I thiink it has something to do with the WDS compliance for this specific model that's why they have clearly specified on the User Guide which devices are guaranteed to work with an F5D7230-4 that is set to AP Mode(Bridge/Repeater).

If you really want to exend the wireless coverage of your Linksys router I suggest you try the Wireless G Range expander(WRE54G v2.0/3.0 version 1.0 I do not recommend since it's somewhat challenging to configure since it has no ethernet port all the setup will be done wirelessly)

click this link for the User Guide of your Belkin router.

Wireless G ranges expander


when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.
