    Mine does the same thing. It has worked great for about 5 months, then it worked this morning, and out of the blue, this afternoon, the wireless light went out and NO MORE WIRELESS. I have 3 laptops that use this network, as well as a wired home office computer, all at home, and none of them work except for the wired one. I have reset the router, reset the cable modem, restored factory defaults, tried to unplug and clear it for a few minutes, NOTHING HELPS. It's like the part that I need just died. Have had other problems with 2 prior belkin routers doing the exact same thing, and had to replace those, but Belkin is going to have to take the fall for this one. THey need to make a better product. THis is ****!!! Works great, when it works. Have had other idiosyncracies with this router since new as well, like just not wanting to fire up, not wanting to access the cable modem, etc. ANY SUGGESTIONS????????

    Same as above; Belkin wireless N1 router that has worked fine for almost a year now, through two moves, suddenly stopped working for wireless connections. The wireless light is out and no restting, rebooting, firmware upgrades/re-installs, etc will bring it back. The wireless function on my laptop functions fine, as it is able to get signals from my neighbors, and the wired connection on my desktop works fine (obviously, since I'm online typing this).

    The wireless light light is not on on mine either. I have tried everythin including restarting using factory settings. Nothing seems to work. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

    Yup. Same problem for me. This tuesday I called Belkin this week when it happened and they guided me through firmware updates and whatnot. Worked great then died again last night.

    Wireless light doesn't go on anymore and as a result I don't have wireless internet service. Any quick fixes? Barry

  • jazbob Feb 20, 2009

    Same issue. Can connect through wired connection, but NO wireless. The "wireless" light does not come on anymore. I was having problems with the router dropping my connection 2 to 3 times an hour. I installed the firmware that Belkin has posted on their website (1.0.0.1) and now I can not connect wirelessly at all. The router orinigally shipped with firmware 1.0.0.4. According to the Belkin website, the latest "QC approved firmware" is 1.0.0.1. Doesn't look like much quality control to me. Calling Belkin tech support didn't help the situation at all either. Their fix is just "return the router to where you bought it". Well, that's exactly what I'm going to do. But I can assure you that I will NOT walk back out of there with another Belkin product. This has been nothing short of a joke, and not a funny one. A quick search on Google and you can see that this is a VERY common problem. Yet they refuse to admit that there is any issue with their product. Goodbye Belkin, hello Linksys.

1) check that you have the latest firmware version for your router; if not download it and install it. This step is normally carried out in the routers configuration web interface.
2) reset router to default settings from within the web interface.
3) make sure your SSid has no spaces in its name, use the underscore character to separate words.

How many pc's, laptop's & printer's can i link up to belkin n1 vision wireless router model f5d8232-4


You can uplink a fairly good number of PCs or laptops with Belkin N1 as it supports high bandwidth. Keep in mind that upon adding every new PC, the overall bandwidth for the other PCs is reduced. If the PCs/ laptops do not require much bandwidth, you can connect / add more PCs to the network.
Generally, I have uplinked upto 10-15 clients to one router and the network worked just fine. It all depends upon the network environment and the bandwidth usage by each client PC. If the PCs are using just email and simple internet browsing (and remain idle for most of the time), you can add more clients to your network as not all the systems consume network resources at the same time.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I had to reset my router because I forgot my security key. Now the wireless isn't working. The light is off and I can't connect to it with my laptops. What happened and how can I fix it?


Hi,

It is possible that since your reset your router that the settings is more likely to be reset as well then you will have to connect using an ethernet cable direcly from the lptop to your router to turn on the wireless capability of your Belkin router.

You will need to get your router's Default gateway to get in the router and turne the wireless capability on it. Most probobly the IP address of your Belking would be 192.168.2.1 type this in IE on the address bar then press enter this should lead you into the router "Belkin" make sure that your are connected using ethernet from the laptop to your Belking router to be able to do this.
