Belkin wireless G will not play Youtube videos completely

I have a Belkin wireless G router model F5D7230-4 version 7000. I can play Youtube videos in full when I remove the router, but when my internet is running thru the router I can not play thru the entire video. Does anyone know of a solution for this?

    Have the same problem, cannot connect to u-tube or any other streaming site for more than about 30 sec. Drops out and never reloads. Also difficult to connect to websites first time. Need to stop FireFox and re-start then the connection is made. Disconnected the router and each computer works fine.

    Same issue, no idea why. We have cable internet, and the videos work GREAT without the router connected. Hook it up, and all crawls. Help would be GREAT!

I had the same problem - I updated the firmware pre-release version from the belkin support site - located here -

Double check the version no to be sure to be sure - this is for V7.

Problem has gone away.

    I had the same problem - I solved it by disabling Extended Range Mode (Wireless > Channel and SSID).

I had exact problem. Youtube video would play maybe halfway then stop. You could sometimes coax it along by playing with the play button. I went into my Belkin router and saw that I had the firewall turned on. The computers (2 of them) also were running firewalls so I turned it off on the Belkin and Youtube works great now. There's really no harm done by turning off the firewall since you've got it on your computers already.

What do you mean you cannot play through the entire video? Does the video cache load all the way? do you have any other issues browsing?

Downloads and youtube stop after a few seconds with belkin fsd9230-4

Do you completely lose internet connectivity? If so, then you are too far away from the router and need to get closer. Alternatively, you could buy an expander/repeater to extend the coverage of your wireless signal.

Hi Iam wireless router technician
To fix this issue all you have to do is, Make sure that noise is coming from the router first..(If "yes")..Reset the router and re- configure it, Still if you hear the noise..

Confirm the model number( starts with F5D) & version (starts with VER) of your router and cal belkin technical support (toll free number) Explain them the same and you will get free replacement.

Cant connect to internet

How many computers are you using?
Are they all wired or wireless ?
1. Your modem should be connected to the wired port of the router
2.Your computers should be connected from the the other blue ports on the back of the router
3. Now open up the set up page by typing in
4. on the top right hand corner you"ll see your status connected or no connection
5. if status is no connection
6. click on restore factory default and let it reboot
7. now comes one more important question what is the version no of the router
8. it is a 4 digit no like 1000,2000.......7000
9. If ver is 7000 then definately go to the site and download firmware version 9.01.10 for ver 7000 or similar
10. On your router setup page select firmware update and load the file
10.Should resolve your issue specially if your isp connection is cable like comcast etc
11. then reconfigure by using connection type
clonig mac address if cable or entering u/name password if dsl
12. also change the channell to 11 as that gives the best reception wirelessly

Should fix the problem definitely but it could have been easier if i knew your exact version no, modem isp,(cable or dsl) , type of computers (wired or wireless) etc . Make of computers (mac or windows) .You can even access other computers wirelessly but you have to connect to your network on the wireless computer.
