Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

Wireless router I have a intel gateway wireless router connected to a machine with windows 98. We use two laptops in the house that have XP. Just recently the connection speed has dropped. I found that if I run the cable connection directly into the laptop and not through the router, my speed is twice as fast. So the cable internet speed is cut in half. Question....Can I simply replace the router with a new updated type and still use the old 98 machine? Can i hook a new router directly to the laptop docking station?

The answer to both your questions is yes. The laptop and the 98 does not care what router they are pluged into, the settings on them will not be affected. Only if you change the adaptors on the the 98 or your XP's will the 98 or XP need any adjustment. (unless you change the WEP key, then it is just a matter of putting the new WEP key in the xp and 98 machines.)

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

It sounds like you may have another wireless network or some other wireless device that could be causing interferance.

1. Do you have a cordless telephone or baby monitor in the house... if so, is it near either the router?

2. If you do a search for wireless networks, can you see other networks? If you can, see what channel they are using, you will need to set your wireless channel to at least 5 higher or lower than at least the strongest signals (so if you see another on channel 1, make sure yours is on at least channel 6). This should prevent channel interference on the wireless network.

Hope that this helps!

I recieved a new computer for christmas Emachine when I try to use the the wireless dgnd3300 it said there is no internet wireless connection yet my laptop works fine please help


What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

I have a similar problem with my laptop which also has an Intel wireless card. The only way I can get a stable connection to my Linksys router is by disabling the Intel utility and letting Windows manage the wireless connections. Open up the Intel utility and press the Fn10 key to disable the Intel utility or from the menu select Advanced and than select disable Wifi Control. You will find you wireless connections to be stabler and faster when you do this, you should also check to see if there is a driver update on Sony or Intel's site for your wireless card. I have had my laptop for three months and there have been four updates so far. Face it, Intel makes crappy network adapters and should stick to processors.

I have forgotten my password for my wireless internet connection.


Connect to Wireless router using LAN cable.
Open Router admin page using the gateway address you get from your network status window from Systray (Support tab in XP).
Follow router instruction to set new WLAN protocol and Password (WPA-PSK for better protection) and use new passphrase (or Key) to set PC client network card protocol.
If Router is Password protected and you missed it: reset to factory settings to reconfigure.
