Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

We have just purchased a Belkin ADSL Modem with Wireless G Router but our computer (packard bell 4716) does not have an ADSL cable or ethernet cable. The lead just connects straight into our telephone socket. We have since purchased a Fast Ethernet PCI adapter which we have to insert into a PCI slot at the back of the computer. But there isn't a slot! HELP!!

Have you opened the computer or just looked at the back and found a couple of blank silver strips. If you have not opened it these strips are just slot covers.Shut down the pc.Unplug it. Open the pc and touch part of the metal frame to ground yourself and discharge any static electricity.There will be one screw holding the slot cover in place. Pick a PCI slot that you want to use and remove the cover from that slot. Insert the card and use the same screw to hold your card in place. Then close the case.Plug the pc in and power up. Windows will say found new hardware and installing.If this what you meant and this fixed your problem please rate this as fixed. If you meant something else or need help opening the pc, please add a comment and let me know. I'm more than happy to help you further. Thanks.

If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL

I'm having issues with the belkin F5D7234-4 and intermittent connectivity with the network, i'm running a compaq c502tu and the belkin G/G+ router, which the router is hooked up to a general custom built...


Of the Belkin Modem Routers I have used and supported, around 60-70% had connectivity issues.

If the Belkin was cabled there appeared to be less issues than if it was used in a Wireless and cabled capacity.

I suggested to another person only moments ago to quickly sketch a diagram to show, how the network is set up. Add labels to the piccy's which provide the following info:

1. Computer Types (Makes, Models) and OS (Vista, Windows7, Leopard etc...)
2. Connection Types (Wireless / Cabeled).
3. The IP Nos.
4. Modem Types (Make, Model). ie, Belkin F5D7234-4 Router.
5. ADSL or ADSL2.

If it is possible to upload the diagram to FixYa then I suggest you scan the diagram (sketch) or take a photo of it and put it on the computer so it can be uploaded to FixYa.

I only discovered FixYa yesterday and joined, so I am not sure what is possible yet, as I have been focussed on trying to find solutions or provide suggestions on where to find the solution.

I would be proactive and submit your problem directly to Belkin via their website, I have provided the Australian Belkin website link below:

I hope this is helpful to you, please rate it. Regards,

My laptop has vista installed via usb from virgin cable modem.what must i do to install a belkin wireless g mimo router using ethernet connection?


Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?

Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"

If that is the actual question, here is the answer:

1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer.
2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable.
3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable.
4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.

(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)

Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.

(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)

Cannot install my Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G router and wireless G USB network adapter


OK.

First plug your router directly into your computer via the ethernet cable that came with the router. You'll want to connect the cable to the port on the router that says "Internet" (it's ussally to the far left when looking at the back of the router) make sure the other end is plugged into your computer's Network Interface Card (NIC).

Plug your computer into the modem via the UBS connection.

Insert the setup cd that came with the router and follow the prompts.

Once configured then unplug the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the modem (which should have an ethernet (RJ-45) jack as well as a USB.

Now you can either hook up to the wireless connection using a wireless adapter OR you can plug your computer in with a ethernet cable to one of the outgoing ports on the back of the router.
