Wireless G Plus MIMO Router Problem

My router does not allow me to download big files from the internet (i.e iTunes, AIM, videos). It would let me connect and sometimes let me start the download but would stall out and stop. I thought it was my internet connection but when I connect my computer to the actual modem itself, it works fine, but when the router gets involved all hell breaks loose. I am at my wits end. I have called everyone: internet provider, Belkin support, but it seems like no one can explain to me how to fix this problem.

Try turning off the router fierwall to see if that is the issue. I assume you have a firewall enabled on your PC

Have you tried to do a factory reset and set up again?

Using the Reset Button to Restore the Factory Defaults
Press and hold the Reset button for five seconds then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The Power/Ready light will begin to blink. When the Power/Ready light becomes solid again, the restore is complete.

I recommend you save your coinfig first but remember whatever the problem may be it could be saved in the config file...

Also you may want to confirm the router type. You have posted under F5D5231-4 which is not a wireless router??

    Found the model no... F5D9230-4



    This router also has a built in firewall so if you have another firewall (XP etc) running this may be the issue.



    refer page 67 of the manual - d/l HERE



    The Belkin site has instructions to turn off the XP firewall so perhaps there is a conflict between the h/w and s/w firewalls ??

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.
