Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router

1 Answer

Dropping Connection My router drops its internet connection once every few minutes.. all the LED lights on my belkin g+ MIMO router are flashing except the power button, (which i believe should all be solid green?). It gets very annoying when i am playing my PS3 online or am on MSN on my computer. Both my wireless and my ethernet cable connections do this. Could someone please help me with my problem?? Thanks

    You might have a cable problem, try to replace it. What type of INternet do you have - Cable or ADSL?

All the LED except power should be flashing, that indicates traffic flow, power should be steady.

If all wired and wireless connections fail it is unlikely the router, more likely the cable/adsl modem that is dropping connection. Test by connecting a pc directly to the cable modem, watch for dropouts. If fails, contact your ISP service dept for line check and do a cable speed check from an online source.

Check also terms of service for the package you bought, many low end services restrict speeds below dialup if you go over your transfer limit. Multiple pcs playing online games use a lot of bandwidth. the speed restriction may put you below the threshhold for game server

How can i reset my Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO Router it cannot connect for an internet connection


  • Locate the small master-reset pinhole on the back of the router. The pinhole is located directly to the right of the Ethernet port labeled "connection to modem."

    Soft-reset the router by placing a sharp object, like a push pin, into the router hole. Push inward and immediately release the button. The lights on the router will flash and then the "Power/Ready" light will start to blink. When the light turns solid, the router is reset and ready to use. This reset does not restore the router to factory settings. It refreshes the software and is similar to rebooting a computer. If you want to restore the router to the factory settings, skip this step and move to step four.

    try to update the router's firmware to the latest one, if conection is still dropping try lowering the MTU size(by default its set to auto) to 1492, 1480, 1472, 1450 check which MTU size will make you connection stable.

    Connection dropping


    If the lights are flashing - that's OK. Wireless light will flash because the connections and beacon transmission, port lights will flash because of local connections. We can troubleshoot this for a while but I think this might be a problem with the box. Probably the best option is to replace it. In case you would like to play, try to run Ethereal and capture the packets and analyse them.

    If you're connected to the router with excellent stregth then the problem most likly lies in the routers connection to the internet. Check your DSL, Cable modem and make sure the connection to the "Internet" port on your router is good. Try switching out the Ethernet cable if nessciary.

    Belkin ADSL2+ Modem with Wireless G Plus MIMO Router


    Me Two, I just reboot my cable box and router box, i do wireless online gaming and every bout 10 mins, i get disconnected even though i have full signal, on he routers web interface settings I have everything up-and-running and thr top right hand corners says connected, but when it drops I just realised that the internet light stops blinking aswell..???
    What is this, this routers is way too annoying keep getting disconnected from every god damn game.
    Keep me up-to-date if you what the preoblem is.
    And oh, the person who can't get on the internet even though his ''WAN'' Says Stable i have 2 possible reasons.

    In the address bat type in the following..
    192.168.2.1.
    look on the left of the screen you can see DNS, if not already ticked, tick the the little box which states.
    '' Automatically assign DNS by IP'' then Apply Changes.
    Or, Go Straigt down to the bottom and go to system settings, also go down to the very bottom. At this poin you can see A option or '' Advanced Featue! '' Menu saying, UnPn or something lol, click the box which says enable or something.

    Hope this has helped

    NetGear Wireless Router - continous internet connection drops


    Hi sharon,

    If you  upgraded the software but still the connecitons is droping then contact the ISP (the internet service provider ), Because it is possible that they have something wrong thier side,,,THIS ISSUE IS KNOWN AS INTERMITTENT SYNC OR ROUTE,,, check the lights on your router , when the internet goes down which light changes,,,

    and once you confirm that the problem is not with your ISP then you need to purchase a new router,

    reply which is the ISP you are subscribing for.
