Question about Belkin Powerline F5D4050 Network Adapter

4 Answers

I have a LAN modem on one floor. I'm using a Belkin Powerline AV 200 Starter Kit to bring my internet connection to the second floor (220V system). It works when I connect a laptop directly with the Belkin Powerline unit on that second floor. It also works when I use a Netgear 5GHz Wireless-N HD Access Point/Bridge between the Belkin unit and the laptop. It does NOT work when I replace the Netgear AP with a D-Link DIR-635 Wireless N IP Router (which works well when directly linked to the LAN modem. How can I make the D-Link router cooperate with the Belkin Powerline system?

Hi. There should be no problem with your setup. have you checked the gateway IP of your belkin and d-link? if they are the same then there might be possible IP collision there and that is why your not getting connection.

    Will look tomorrow. The D-Link is already back in the box, and the Access Point is out again. I did set up the D-Link with dynamic ip though.

    any update here?

  • dstockhaus Aug 08, 2010

    Thanks for asking! Nope, have given up. Will get other powerline adapters on Wednesday (D-Link) and test them first. D-Link should work with D-Link (router) - theoretically.

    Ok. That should do it. It will be best if you will buy the same brand.

    Well, the point is that the D-Link Router as such works perfectly, it is recognized by the PC, but there is no interernet connection. There is no difference with and without the Belkin powerline plugged into the router. Belkin powerline as such does transmit an internet signal, the Netgear Accrss Point shows that (internet connection fine). But the signal is not "enough" to get the router to passing the internet signal to the PC the way the AP does.

    Alright, thanks for the clarification. Have you tried double clicking the connection for the Dlink may need to be identified first before connecting to the internet.

  • dstockhaus Aug 04, 2010

    Yes, have done that.

Try setting them up the other way around with the D-Link router connected to your modem and then your Belkin Powerline connected to the network via an ethernet cable to your D-Link router. Often times the wireless router needs to be connected directly to your modem for it to work correctly and then everything else has to be connected to the wireless router. Typically, a wireless router has at least 4 ethernet ports on the back side for connecting other LAN devices to the network that don't have wireless capabilities.

Hi,
I guess the problem is with the compatibility of both the devices. The belkin powerline doesnot work with >100mpbs D-lin 635. You may try downloading the updated firmware from the belkin website.

I'm not sure about the model of the powerline you are using, as it comes in two models in the UK one with 85mpbs and the other with 200mpbs but the updated firmware can be downloaded from the link below

How to update the firmware ?

I would still suggest call belkin to verify the updated firmware

    Even after the updating the Belkin if the device is not working , the issue could be with device compatibility .I would personally try replacing the Belkin Powerline to eliminate the issue I personally do not have more to add to the solution. But if i find anything on the same , will post back.

    Thanks, that's exactly my impression. But what powerline device is compatible with the D-Link DIR-635 Wireless N IP Router? Any idea?

    Hi,
    while researching on the issue in I came accross the latest firmware update for the Router.

    The link to Download firmware .

    In certain regions the Dlink router that you are using is End of life.

    However I was able to locate the model number for the Dlink power line that should work with the both the Routers


    Dlink Poweline HD



    Thanks for your time and patience and please keep me posted on the issue

Try reset the device and start a new configuration.It seems that your networwork have issues between the router and the powerlines.All need to be in the same network as per router configuration.Connect one adapter to your router and plug it into an available electrical outlet. Plug the second adpter into an available wall outlet and connect the other end to any device with an available Ethernet port such as a gaming console, set-top box, or computer.

pd: OS to use the adapters; Windows 2000, XP or Vista.

This thing doesn't work. When moving the remote unit downstairs, it doesn't connect to the network.


The powerline modems are affected by the other connected equipment in your house and the wiring phases.

For BOTH modems try the following first:

-Connect the modems directly to the wall socket, don't use an extension lead.

-If you have a surge protecting extension block plugged in in the next/adjacent socket, try plugging it in on a different mains socket.

If this does not work, you may want to think again about routing an Ethernet cable between floors.
Higher performance and lower cost.

Hi I am using reliance broadband. They have


Easy, if your modem is connected to your computer right now and internet is working all you need to do is connect your LAN line to your belkin router. the connection should say input, or Internet. after that you will need another LAN wire (These look like telephone cables but the jack plug is larger and will only fit a lan connection on your router or computer) Connect the second wire to the line 1 or outout 1 from your router, to your pc in the slot where the other cable was connected. your internet signal should work.... on your mobil find any available network and log in to your belkin router.

that should do it.... if you haven't set up your internet connection, do that first by installing the drivers for the modem provided by your provider and then complete the process above.

Trouble expanding my Belkin Powerline network


F5D4075 uses Homeplug AV standard and F5D4071 used Home plug 1.0 Turbo. Both are not compatible to each other. So if you form a network, you have to form with the same standard.
Secondly, You need just one Powerline adapter on the router and you can have 2 or 3 adapter connected to 1 computer each and all these computers can connect to the 1 adapter on the router. You do not have to use it in pairs

Try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer: Go to Tools > Internet Options and select the Connections tab. Does it show your old dial-up connection in the list? If so highlight it and click on REMOVE. Close IE and re-open it. It should now use the Belkin LAN connection.
