Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)

1 Answer

Major issues For 3 weeks the internet connection has been unstable. I phoned Belkin and because the old router re-set button was broken they replaced it with a new N1 router. After installing the N1 and then subsequently re-installing the USB software the same problem exists. Connection is unstable. I had my provider here today to check the modem and he was perplexed also! After 2 hours he gave me a new modem and basically said maybe there is a compatability problem with the modem and the N1 router. I spent 6 hours on and off the phone with the Belkin helpdesk and they couldn'[t figure it out so they escalated my call to the higher ups at Belkin (in Australi) I am waiting on a call from them now, but thought someone else may have some answers! Good luck and thanks!

    What version is your Belkin N1 router? The version number can be found on the bottom of the unit (ie 1000, 2000, 3011, etc).

I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:

Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

My Belkin router has a orange light even after u reset it and it won't connect


By 'Reset' i suppose you mean reset the devices settings to default by holding down the reset button and not just simply turn it on and off. Try checking to see if the phone line is correctly plugged into the modem and that all the phone lines are filtered (have a ADSL line filter/splitter on it).
Also, try checking all the connections are plugged in.
Alternatively you can log into the modems web page to see what the issue is.

Netgear WG111v3 USB adapter not connecting desktop to Belkin router. this notebook is working OK. The adapter has been working OK for about 3 weeks.


Try to download the newest driver from belkin that matches the version and model. Uninstall the old driver and install the new one. This should fix the issue. you will need a pc that is connected / working to the internet to get this done.

Connection


Update the firmware on the router to the latest version available on Belkin's website. Do this over a wired connection, NOT wireless. Also, make sure that your modem is not the issue.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
