Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)

2 Answers

I've been using the Belkin N1 router using it for my wireless connection for almost 3 years now. But only last night, the wireless light is out, and the security light is out as well. I've tried unplugging the router and the cable modem. Gave each one at least 30 seconds before plugging them back in. after doing so, I reset the router and waited for the wireless light to come back on. But still, no wireless connection. Is there any other way I can troubleshoot and fix this problem?

I think the power cable of your modem has been damaged. kindly check the power cable. If there is no light on the modem , it is assumed to be that the power cable has been damaged. so you have to purchase the power cable of the modem. If the power cable is found to be perfect , kindly purchase the net work cables/ OR prepare the net work cables if you are aware of about the network cables., because the clippings of the network cables might have spoiled. If the power cable of modem, network cables are found to be perfect , it is certainly , the modem might have damaged. To fix the all the problems mentioned above , you are requested to to contact your ISP ( Internet Service Provider) . They will certainly fix your problems. In the mean while kindly try to solve yourself. If you are paying rent towards the monthly charges against the modem to ISP , they must be replace your modem with new one. If you have purchased the modem by paying the cost of the modem at the time of installation of the internet connection , you have to purchase the new modem, if the old modem was found to be damaged.

This is a known problem with the Belkin N1 Vision Modem Router. The router keeps time by connecting to a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server every 2 hours.

Dear Friend,

3. Now connect your ISP modem to wireless router, The modem should connect to your WAN cable.

4. And Give the wireless router's IP in your laptop as Gateway (In TCPIP settings of your Laptop wireless adapter / or configure DHCP)

5. Now you can access internet on both systems.
