Question about Gateway Cable/DSL Router - 4Port [ Belkin F5D5231-4 ] (108807)

1 Answer

Signal problems - F5D5231-4 (Belkin 4-port wired router) through virgin media set top box

I've noticed on both machines on my network (wii & PC) that from time to time the signal just drops from the router for a period of a couple of seconds, then returns.

This never happens if I plug directly into the digital modem.

Its not really a problem for data transfer, but its really annoying when gaming as it usually drops me from the server..

Do you know what could be causing the problem?

    I have the same problem and have always had to bare with it which has become really frustrating recently. If I can, I normally just plug my PC in directly to the modem when gaming or downloading. 


    I've read upon this for a while now and I think it might just be a faulty unit.

I have heard of this problem before with these belkins,,, usually its like a SpikeDrop every like 5-10 minutes. Frigging kills any kinda gaming experience. Ok you need to update the firmware on that router and DUMB down the security settings and turn off that file share **** on the router too. If none of this helps just return it and buy a better router or a linksys.

CHANGE FROM WIRELESS TO WIRED INTERNET CONNECTION


It is possible .. just get youself an ethernet cable .. connect one end to your router and the other end to the back of the pc ( ethernet port ) .. and u will be connected via the wire.. You can disable the wireless connection from the router for that you can either call your Internet service provider or the netgear support team.
All The Best!!!

Belkin g router and Virgin - account not accepted


can you get a phone number?

the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up

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

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.

Router


Connect the modem to the WAN port of the router, then connect the computer that was connected to the cable modem to any port on the router. After you recieve an address from the router you will then connect to the belkin setup page. go to IE and connect to 192.168.2.1 I think the belkin routers password is blank. After going to the setup page on IE you will go to the mac address clone, click clone computer address. Then reboot the router, or renew the wan dhcp. Good luck.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
