Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
This is what I wrote to Belkin:
The IP address that is on the internet settings shows "Wan IP 22.214.171.124." My web page hasn't been viewable for a few weeks and I decided that I would try & hook the cable modem right in to a computer to made sure the Router was not messed up. When I connected the cable modem directly in to the computer the IP address that "ipconfig /all" shows is this "126.96.36.199". Then I hooked the router back up and the WAN IPADDRESS still shows the wrong one. When I do "ipconfig /all" with the router connected it shows the "188.8.131.52" address. Would this be an indication that the router is not functioning properly? I reset the factory settings and put everything back the way I had them and it still didn't work. Any help would be appreciated. Have you ever heard of this problem before? Thanks for your help.
They wanted me to update my firmware, but the web address they gave me doesn't have a firmware upgrade for V2000. The firmware version I have is 4.05.03. If anyone knows of a compatible firmware upgrade or any suggestion that would be great. Here is the information about the setup I have:
Here is the information about my modem and router.
I have Cox Internet service, dynamic IP I am assuming.
Modem: AMBIT with a model number of U10C018
Router: F5D7230-4 Version 2000 Firmware 4.05.03 Boot Version 2.01.09 Serial BEL1URH5
Thanks for any help
Although I am generally knowledgeable in networking, your issue I think still lies with your Router settings. I will however offer you a site to visit that may help you to set up your router no matter what type of service your ISP is.
It sounds as if the computer that is wired to the router should have an ip address assigned by router somewhere in the range of 192.168.2.2 through 192.168.2.149. The router that you speak of might have the ability to be used as a "bridge" thus throwing off some of the settings. It seems as though you have the ability to have the router set up its own WAN IP. Which is for the wireless aspect of the router. Even with that though the default gateway should still be the address that you type in the browser to access your router's settings. The Belkin web site did offer a firmware update for your particular model as well and I will include that site too.
