    Hi candyj,

    We'll need some more information from you, please. Then we'll be able to set about resolving your problem for you.

    One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with. There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.

    (01) Which of the following is your router?
    -->> F5D7130 (Wireless G Access Point)
    -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
    -->> F5D7231-4 (Wireless G Plus Router)
    -->> F5D7231-4P (Wireless G Plus Router w/ Build-In USB Print Server)
    -->> F5D7235-4 (High-Speed Mode Wireless G Router w/ Gigabit Switch)

    (02) If yours isn't one of the routers listed above (you'll see this no. on a sticker on the bottom of the router), please, let us know what your router's "F______-_" number is.

    (03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet?

    (04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please)
    (a) wirelessly
    (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)

    (05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

    (06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?

    (07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on?

    This could be anywhere - not necessarily on your home network. e.g. a laptop computer at an Internet cafe or college library, etc.

One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless

or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.

There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.

-->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)

I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine

Belkin F5D7234-4 V5 MODEM LIGHT AND INTERNET LIGHT ARE BLANK. WHEN I RUN A CABLE FROM MY MODEM TOMY COMPUTER, INTERNET WORKS, BUT WHEN I CONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE MOEM TO THE BELKIN WIRELESS ROUTER, NO...


Is this a new router - or should I say did you only have the one computer hooked to the modem until now? Some ISPs use the MAC address of the installed PC to assign the network IP address. Since the Router will have a different MAC address, the modem will not recognize it. ISPs use this as security, but it makes networking impossible. However, most routers have a feature called MAC spoofing, which allows the Router to fake the modem into believing it is the computer originally attached to the modem. On newer routers this is a feature that can be automatically done during the setup wizard. You need to have the original PC hooked to one of the router ports (not WAN or INTERNET) and when the router asks you if you want to use the MAC spoof, say yes.

Ive connected my belkin device to may desktop. Now im trying to connect my ipad to my modem or the belkin..but getting no where lol Ipad finds the modem but say 'unable to join the network'. Any ideas...


which belkin device have you connected to your desktop? The ipad will be looking for a wireless network to connect to. So you will need a wireless router to allow it to connect, also the modems ethernet cable needs to plugged into the wireless router and IF you have the modem connected directly to the pc to allow it to connect to the internet , then you need to connect a lead FROM the router to the PC

I've been using the Belkin N1 router using it for my wireless connection for almost 3 years now. But only last night, the wireless light is out, and the security light is out as well. I've tried unplugging...


I think the power cable of your modem has been damaged. kindly check the power cable. If there is no light on the modem , it is assumed to be that the power cable has been damaged. so you have to purchase the power cable of the modem. If the power cable is found to be perfect , kindly purchase the net work cables/ OR prepare the net work cables if you are aware of about the network cables., because the clippings of the network cables might have spoiled. If the power cable of modem, network cables are found to be perfect , it is certainly , the modem might have damaged. To fix the all the problems mentioned above , you are requested to to contact your ISP ( Internet Service Provider) . They will certainly fix your problems. In the mean while kindly try to solve yourself. If you are paying rent towards the monthly charges against the modem to ISP , they must be replace your modem with new one. If you have purchased the modem by paying the cost of the modem at the time of installation of the internet connection , you have to purchase the new modem, if the old modem was found to be damaged.

I bought belkin g wireless modem ruter but they didn't give me CD . How can i install this and how can i use my wireless ruter please. Thank you.


Power-off your cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the modem to the WAN port on your router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect from one LAN port on your router to the network-port on your computer (desktop/laptop).
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Turn the computer on.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Type IPCONFIG
Press Enter
Look for output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 1234.678.0.1
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://1234.678.0.1
to access the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the Network Setup Wizard.
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
to pick an SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and to pick a network-password.
Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer, and try using the wireless-adapter inside your computer.

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.
