Belkin N1 wireless router

Hi-  My Belkin N1 router is working to the desktop to which it is hardwired, but the wireless icon is not lit and I am not getting wireless reception.  I have reset the router, and I have turned off power for a couple of minutes, and rebooted by going to 192.168.2.1 as Sandrew mentioned on a previous post, all to no avail.  All other icons on the router are lit, and the connection to the desktop is fine.   Any great ideas?  Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Hi (I'm on live chat with Maanita right now)


    I didn't turn anything off, and I'm not sure how to check that.

    I have a Dell Latitude D630. Earlier it was connecting fine and now, I'm not able to connect. It tells me there is no wireless available. The desktop works fine. It's connected to the ethernet. The light on the router for wireless is not lit up. I have reset it and nothing changed.

FixYa's Maanita was no help whatsoever, and worse, a complete waste of time.  I called Belkin who's tech guided me to the problem in ten minutes, whereas I wasted an hour and a half with FixYa.

Every time i hook up the wireless router to the dsl router it doesnt find the internet ( its is a embarq 660 series dsl router and i have a belkin N1 wireless router)


the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is 192.168.2.1)...hardwire the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type 192.168.2.1 in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to 192.168.5.1....the problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a minute....it ll get fixed

I just bought a belkin n1 wireless router at a thrift store. everything works but the wireless part. its all hardwired to my desktop, but my laptop won't pick up a signal from it.


I would suggest going into the router itself at 192.168.1.1, and reset to the factory settings, or if you are familiar enough with router configuration, make sure your SSID is being broadcasted. Also, make sure you are currently using the up to date firmware.

Also make sure you are using the correct security settings to connect up to the router once it's discovered under the "Available Wireless Networks".

Trying to create a bridge with two routers


You do not need a bridge if you are using a wireless adaptor on your pc in the other room. Just set up the Belkin Plus router to the WEP security settings you want and make sure the pc wireless usb adaptor has the same settings as the router. You should be good to go. Good Luck.

Belkin N1 wireless router drops offline


The connectivity issue with your Belkin router could be due to a couple of different items. Your ISP might even be able to shed a little light on the subject.

I would also go to Belkin's website, and go to the support area by clicking on Support Center in the left pane of the sight. You can then search for your product number. With the results that you receive, you will be able to see what version of firmware they have, which is like doing a software upgrade on your computer. There should also be a step by step process on the website for you to install the firmware. I would do it from a desktop that is connected physically to the router.

Please let me know if you would like further assistance with this matter. Thank you.

Downloads locks up - Belkin N1 Wireless Router


I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
