Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I keep experiencing problems with connection form my laptop to the wireless router somedays it works and some it doesn't. It sometimes even does not show up on my list of available WIFI. On acasion it doen't even let me use my Desktop. I have the lan cable from the modem to the router and router to PC. Here is one problem that occurs connection cannot be establish can not recognize IP Address. There are others but maybe if I cab solve this one it might work. I do the unplug for 30 sec and sometimes it work and sometimes it does not. Getting very frustrated this is the second belkin I went through the 1st one had the same issues and just stop working.
There is a possibility that the router that you have has a problem with the firmware or the device itself.
You can try several solutions, you can go to the setup page of the router and change the MTU of the device. If that does not work, firmware upgrade should be done on the router.
The router's firmware can be downloaded from this site: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&aid=5027
Once the firmware has been downloaded, you need to access the router's setup page and update the router's firmware there.
1. Connect a computer wired to the router
2. Open an Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 and leave both user name and password blank
3. Find Firmware Upgrade, search for the file and load it
4. After it has been successful, reset the router for 10 seconds then run the setup CD
