Hi, I have the Belkin F5D7663-4 modem router, which I've been running for a while with a home network of 2 PCs and a laptop accessing the internet wirelessly. I recently installed a Firewire port card in the main PC next to the router and when I rebooted it wanted to reinstall the adapter (also Belkin).
I reinstalled it but despite all being well on the router, I can't connect. When I click the Belkin icon and connect, I put in my key and it turns blue for a couple of seconds as if connecting then goes red again. At suggestion of Belkin I've connected an Ethernet cable today (no change, in fact, PC hasn't noticed this) and tried to access the long number that Belkin suggest in the handbook without http etc. Won't connect (although my IE does keep trying to put an http at the front). So I can't even get in to see if my key is wrong!
The other desktop and this laptop have continued to connect no problem so clearly not the router.
Could it be the adaptor?
All suggestions appreciated!
I had this model of router quite some time ago. I had some bad experiences where when I tried to login to it I was unable to, the web based management interface would not respond (as you have described) . Resetting the device would resolve this I would recommend trying that. Unplug it, wait a few minuets and plug it back in. Then try again to access the management interface. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or whatever via a web browser.

Did you try direct wiring the other pcs to see if they will connect separately? If they won't then check the network settings on each pc that won't connect. Make sure that the gateway address is the same ip address as the router is.
Did it work before the outage, all of them at once? If so go to the Command Prompt (RUN, type in cmd, enter and a small window will pop up), and where the cursor is blinking type in - ipconfig - (some win versions use winipcfg) , hit ENTER. That will tell you what address are set to. It should say 192.168.xxx.xxx.
Type in - ipconfig /release - ENTER. That will reset the addresses which should now all be zeros.
Now type in - ipconfig /renew - (make sure you have the blank space between the g and the /). This should give you the 192.168.xxx.xxx address for IP if your network settings are set correctly under Network Connections- Properties-TCP/IP
Sometimes under outages you need to reset both the modem, the router and the pcs to acquire the new addresses.
3.When it comes to sharing folders, there are two main ways to do this. You can either 1) right click the folder and enable sharing through the shortcut menu., or 2) add the file/folder to ‘Shared Documents’ (for XP) or ‘Public Folder’ (for Vista).
Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if you have any difficulties. Good luck!
To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Try the manual method.connect router to pc with ethernet cable
1.logon to 192.168.0.1
