Belkin Wireless-N Wireless Router with 4-Port Switch F5D8233-4
For this router, is the LAN connection different from what is used in most households? I ask because most of the other routers say "Wireless" under the LAN heading, but this Belkin only says "Ethernet." Does this mean it won't work with the normal Time Warner-type cable setup?

the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is 192.168.2.1)...hardwire the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type 192.168.2.1 in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to 192.168.5.1....the problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a minute....it ll get fixed
That's a fairly new router, you shouldn't be having those issues. Make sure you're identifying the uplink port, the quickstart guide with router should help with that.
If everything is wired correctly, it could be either firmware of hardware. Might want to try calling Belkin or even where you bought it from to see if you can exchange. Sounds like you got a defective unit. Alternately, try going to Belkin's website and downloading and installing the latest firmware for the router. If that doesn't do it, then you have a hardware failure, and Belkin should owe you a new router, that router claims a lifetime warranty.
1. please chk if you might have a wireless switch to enable wireless in your laptop
2. Let your computer scan for wirelss networks and see if you can see the network in the list.
3. If you dont see it in the list, go closer to the router so the signals are better
4.If you still dont see it, try to reboot the router once.
5. If you see it and not connecting, please chk if you have a mac address filtering on the router. this is probably not letting you in now.
Hope this helps

You should be aware of a class action lawsuit that Belkin and the complaintent settled recently. The lawsuit was filed complaining that certain Belkin routers did not obtain optimal speeds as advertised.
Belkin has agreed to provide affected customers a discount program to purchase a new router. You will need to search elsewheres for the details.
You may use your wireless router as an Access Point:
1. Connect one of the LAN port of the Belkin to a LAN port on your Voyager. If the link light on both side are not coming on, try using a cross-over cable. Important: Do not connect anything to the WAN port of your Belkin.
2. Configure the LAN IP address of your Belkin in the same subnet as the Voyager. By example, if your Voyager has 192.168.0.1, you may give your Belkin 192.168.0.3.
3. Disable the DHCP server on the Belkin since the Voyager most likely already has one.
4. Configure the Wireless parameter of your Belkin as you would normaly do.
Using this method, your wired and wireless devices will be able to communicate together since they will be on the same network and your Belkin will act as a bridge between the wired and wireless network.
