Question about Gateway Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router (DHF5D72304)

1 Answer

My Sony Vaio employs a wireless connection to a Belkin 54g router. Problem free for months but for last few weeks it will not connect automatically showing "windows cannot connect to Belkin 54g". Will connect after a few prompts but takes time and will drop out (often when I close the lid of the l/top ??!!). I'm a silver surfin technophobe needing help please.

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.


If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Make sure that your router is set for an "encryption system" that is similar to all your computers and mobile devices. Example, if your router is set to encrypt using WAP2, make sure all your devices connect and is capable to connect using WAP2. Or else, set it to WAP and set your devices to WAP also.

check you cable connections, try to check if you can go online wired to the router if you are connecting wirelessly. You can also bypass the router and connect directly to the modem to make sure its working.
