Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Belkin Router keeps frezing.

Hi I use Virgin Media broadband and have set up a Belin Router so that we can access internet wirelessly. We can get onto the internet and can access websites etc, but the problem (which is very infuriating) is that when we are on the internet the internet keeps disconnecting.
I use a belkin wireless adapter and the icon is a blue screen when connected to internet, but everynow and again the icon turns red and then I get the windows msg that the network cable disconnected. I go downstairs to the router. The router has one light on (it has a few flashing when it the internet is working), I turn router off then on again and the internet comes back on but it is very annoying to have to keep running up and down the stairs all the time.
I had updated the routers firmware and it has not made any sig improvements, i dont know what else to try apart from buying another (non Belkin) router. can anyone help?

    Thanks I triec changing the channel last night, but it did not help. If anything it went a bit more crazy. I think it might just be a good idea to buy a new router, does anyone know which one would be best with virgin media.

Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).

My belkin n series keeps losing internet connection hard wired to my computer and three wireless computers in the house. when hard wired to the virgin broadband modem everything works fine


I would suggest taking a look at your modem LEDs. What happens exactly when you lose connection? A look at the LEDs should give you some thought as what might be causing this. You can also try resetting your Belkin to default factory settings by pressing the Reset button at the back for 30 seconds, and then putting back your Belkin settings.

Laptop finding router but no internet connection


If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.

The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.

I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.

once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.

"ipconfig /all" then hit enter
this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.

once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.

Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.

Good luck
