I am not able to connect to my Belkin Router. My roommate has a Mac and it works great for him, but my PC will not connect to the internet through the router. He set up the router using his computer. Mine connects to the router, but won't go to internet. My computer connects to other WiFi with no problems. What can I do???

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Hi, Why not contact your room mate and get the password from him? In the meantime, if you are looking for access to the Internet for free, most Council Libraries offer internet access at no charge to card holders.

Belkin F5D7234-4 V5 MODEM LIGHT AND INTERNET LIGHT ARE BLANK. WHEN I RUN A CABLE FROM MY MODEM TOMY COMPUTER, INTERNET WORKS, BUT WHEN I CONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE MOEM TO THE BELKIN WIRELESS ROUTER, NO...


Is this a new router - or should I say did you only have the one computer hooked to the modem until now? Some ISPs use the MAC address of the installed PC to assign the network IP address. Since the Router will have a different MAC address, the modem will not recognize it. ISPs use this as security, but it makes networking impossible. However, most routers have a feature called MAC spoofing, which allows the Router to fake the modem into believing it is the computer originally attached to the modem. On newer routers this is a feature that can be automatically done during the setup wizard. You need to have the original PC hooked to one of the router ports (not WAN or INTERNET) and when the router asks you if you want to use the MAC spoof, say yes.

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.

Belkin N router will not let Mac notebook connect now that N/G/B is enabled


The router does not care what brand of computer that wants access, only a MAC address. If you can see it in the wireless scan then you have a configuration setting to resolve. Steve Medley
