Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

Open Question

3 main problems all discribed below


The first problem we came across is that the wireless connection turns its self off pediodically, normally during the night.

the second problem is my wife and i will be both on laptops, both online connect to the router via wireless, but as soon as she turns her laptop off i loose my connection.

Both the above problems we rectify by resetting the router but it is getting a bit of a chore.

the final problem has only just started recently, we have played a many games on facebook then some or them stopped loading, we have checked all Java and Flashplayer setting and they are both up to date. we excepted that we would not able to play them untill we visited a friends house and we used their wireless network and were able to play all the games again. This then pointed to our router, we were advised to check our router settings, but not sure what they should be.

SOURCE: Wireless security settings on laptop do not match network settings


As the settings don't match, I would recommend you reset your router, theres a reset button there, hold it for 30 seconds, your router is returned to default settings and you will instantly get online after the router is working.

After this you will need to setup some security settings incase you don't want people to freely connect and use your network.

Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: Laptop won't connect to the router

Let's start with the easy first. It's a ROUTER issue. If it came with a CD, DO NOT RUN IT!!! You will not like the result when Belkin tries to take over your wireless card, especially in Vista.

The best you can hope for is Plug in the Belkin to your Modem. If it's DSL, you probably have a PPPoE connection and there's a username and password TO THE INTERNET> If it's a Cable modem, you probably use DHCP. Hope for that, because out of the box the Belkin is looking for DHCP. Plug your computer into the router and see if it connects.

Set your computer for Obtain a DHCP and see if your computer gets 192.168.2.x (possibly 2). Now, open Internet Explorer (IE) and type in in the address bar (no http, no www, just the numbers). If it logs you in, you're all set to make the changes to the router, no password is required on initial login. If for some strange reason the router does not give out DHCP addresses, manually set the network card to use 192.168.2.x (anything but 1)
the mask at and the gateway at

Set your wireless up with the wireless access tab and set your security for the wireless login. I use WEP with the 64 bit password of 1011121314.

All the above was for the easy. If you're using something ugly like an AT&T or Verizon DSL and you need PPPoE settings, you need to follow the instructions for your specific router to set it up. It may require the assistance of the Telco, as they can direct you into their modem to turn on bridged mode and the like. Since you can get into it by just plugging in the computer directly to the modem, I'm thinking that DHCP settings will work.

Please post back and mention your country and the exact number of the Belkin router. I don't know what version software you have, but if it's new, I'm guessing Axxxx. Here's a link

Starting on pdf page 29 (25 real) are the step-by-step manual configuration instructions. If you follow along, it will tell you how to set up PPPoE and the like.

Good luck and please post back if you run into any problems.

SOURCE: Cannot connect Belkin F5D8233-4 Router to Mac Laptop

Hi, I had the same problem with my MBP and the best solution I found was:
Dissable the Wlan security and use Mac Address control only for the wireless. This will keep your network secure anyway and you can connect normally.

The only inconvenience is that when you want to connect other computers to your wireless you have to enter its MAC address on the list.

Remember to set the list as Allow.

SOURCE: F5D7231-4 stopped connecting to Internet via downstream router

Why did you change it from dynamic to static? My suggestion would be to put it back to dynamic and let it grab a good ip address from the gateway. The other option is to contact whoever managed the network at your apartment and see what they will charge you for a static IP address.

Hi Brian, thank you for your post!

Sounds like the either both bake and broiler element may be faulty or a potential wiring failure to the elements. You may want to connect with a local servicer who will be best equipped to pinpoint the problem. If you don't know a qualified technician, you can use the service locator option on the manufacturer site to find one near you.
