Question about Belkin Wireless-N Wireless Router with 4-Port Switch
I have Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8233-4v3(01). When trying to connect to the internet, it does not connect. I have a Static internet connection and I have tried setting it up in the Router Setup. But after I enter my IP address and DNS info, I click Save changes. But when it returns to the Home Section of the Router Setup, the IP Address and DNS only appear as 0.0.0.0, and I can't connect to the internet. Does anyone have the same problem? I have tried updating the firmware, but the firmware I found on the Belkin Support web site is the same version as the one install in the router.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: IP address
I would guess that your ISP is providing a dynamic IP address for connectivity to the internet. If your router is changing the IP address back to default, I would think that your configuration is not setup properly, to receive a dynamic address, but is set with a static address instead. So what happens is that when you attempt to connect to your ISP your router is resetting. If this is the case then you need to go into the router configuration and set it to recieve a dynamic address from your ISP.

Your Belkin router is normally configured to get a dynamic IP Add from your Internet provider unless otherwise configured. Most ISP's network where clients/subscribers connect (through DSL) has a DHCP server that hands out this IP adds. If your router keeps on changing its WAN IP add, it may presumably be because:
1. Your router keeps on rebooting or powering on/off and everytime it turns on, it is given a new IP add;
2. Your ISP's DHCP server keeps on renewing its lease on the IP add given to your router.
Corrective measures would entail:
a. Do a full hard reset of your router and go through the installation setup again. Of course this would revert all settings/configuration to factory default; and/or
b. Contact your ISP and explain your concern.
In some cases, the router's MAC address has an issue that the ISP's DHCP is keeping a hard time recognizing it. this can be corrected with a firmware update.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things tunrs up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kin regards.

With speeds around 10 mb to the router over wireless you may want to consider checking if AUTO chanel is enabled or available on that model
If so then enable it.
Also consider moving the router if there are any other wireless devices nearby eg. cordless phone.
It may also be the the windows "zero wireless configuration" service is finding too many other wireless signals nearby that may be stronger than your own
If that is the case you may want to disable the service and set it to manual. Better still if you have a utility on the laptop (most have) then try set that to control the wireless setting instead of windows.
One of those last two items should help you maintain a better connection but only holds true if you have a reasonable connection to the router to start with.
You might also consider a cheaper wireless repeater to enable you to get better speeds

You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.
