Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Hi i have a WiMAX 519 from bell and I bought a belkin router so I could have wireless and it worked for about a day and now the internet keeps blinking on and off. The signal on the modem is fine but the lights on the router keep blinking irregularly. I thought it might be interferance from my 2.5GZ phones but after unplugging them there was no change i also checked my firewalls and still no change. I dont know a lot about computers so could you dumb it down for me :D Ps I have a win xp laptop

    Are you doing anything (such as transferring data or browsing the net) when the lights blink?

If you're Bell sympatico is a wireless modem/router and your laptop has built in wireless on it you just need to connect to the wireless signal of the Bell sympatico then that should be the time you can access internet with the laptop, But if your Bell sympatico is only a plain DSL modem you need to get a wireless router that will share the internet to your laptop and desktop so you can roam in your house with your laptop here is a sample of wireless router Linksys WRT54G.

Hope that helps........

On and off at what rate? Every few seconds? Every few hours?

Does it cause the internet light on the modem to go off, or just the internet connection in the computer?

If you're using it wirelessly, what adapter in the computer? How far is the computer from the router?

(The router should work with any broadband modem.)

I have bought a belkin wireless g router. my pc is virgin broadband i need to connect an aspire lap top. where do i plug in to make the router work


Hello,

If you have your pc connected directly to your Virgin Broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.

Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.

After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.

Thanks

Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

Belkin products are notorious for breaking down at a high rate. If you wanted to rule out your computer as the culprit, you could install the belking adapter on your laptop (disable the built-in one) and see if it still works. I would also suggest going here:

and typing in your product model # and downloading the latest firmware/software for it. As always, restart your computer.

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
