Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)
I'm on Virgin Media and I have a Belkin Gateway 54g wireless DSL router.
I can access the internet fine, but I find that files I download like quicktime movies, zip files seem to drop out when they are downloading. They stall and I have to restart them to get them down.
I'm using Firefox on windows XP professional.
I also noticed that when I use MSN messenger that the messages that people type, I only receive about half of, again due to the drop out from the router. I know it isn't the virgin media connection as I can plug straight into the virgin media modem via ehternet connection and get the full speed uninterrupted connections.
Anyone am I missing a setting somewhere?
Resolved the problem by uploading new pre-release firmware version from the belkin support site - F5D7230 V7 -

I had the same problem. I then set my IP to static and the problem resolved itself. However a couple of weeks later it started again. My IP remains static and I still have the problem. But at least thet's a temporary solution.

It's a DNS error. Find your cable modem's DNS settings by directly plugging in and going to the connection icon, hit it, then hit properties or details. It will list your DNS under DNS 4. Take that address and talk to your router via 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. in you browser address bar. Click on DNS and uncheck the box that automatically get DNS settings. Input your modems DNS and you should not have the problem downloading or watching video anymore. This solution works when your router won't download all the way or stops halfway. Peace out peeps. My belkin router did the same thing when I got it and I fixed it years ago and haven't had a problem.
