Question about Belkin F5D8631-4 Router (F5D8631au4A)
I set up my Belkin router in unsecured mode. All laptops connected with internet access. I changed to secure WPA and one laptop does pick up the router but not the internet access. When I ping from the laptop to 192.168.2.1, there is no response. However when I disable security, it responds and connect to the internet. Belkin say it is a firewall but I have made no changes and this laptop connects fine to the 3G router and the internet. Any ideas?
Make sure you entered the same key exactly the same way in both the router and the computer. Also, make sure you have selected a Security protocol that is supported by the computer. Some versions of Windows do not support WPA. XP supports it but really doesn't like to auto detect it. If it's a HP laptop make sure you are using a communications channel other than 6. Some routers give you an option to select the channel HP computers don't like working with channel 6.
