Question about Belkin F5D7330 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Every time I start up my laptop the computer detects the Belkin router and loads the belkin monitor onto the task bar. But then it brings up a splash box stating that my Belkin may need updating and asks me to download the update. After downloading my AVG anti-virus detects a malware "VBS:Malware-gen". I move the malware to the virus vault but this update box keeps coming up everytime I start the computer. Searched internet but cannot find any reference to this issue. Thanks

Have your anti -virus run a full scan on the computer to detect where the virus is hiding
don't put virus in anything but the delete box

SOURCE: program for belkin router

you don't require the disk...
co0nnect your belkin router with ethernet cable into the comp...
open internet explorer type an address as 192.168.2.1 it will take you to router config page..it will ask for a password leave it blank
click submit
click the Wizard link on the top menu bar.
For a UK ADSL connection, you will need to select PPPoA (Routing mode, for multiple PCs) even if you are only going to connect a single computer, then click the next button.
The next step is to enter your username and password that your service provider has provided you with. To try and ensure the password is entered correctly it must be entered twice. The VPI/VCI values of 0/38 are the correct ones for a BT Wholesale ADSL line. If you are using another telephone provider check the settings required. Click next again to continue to the next phase in the wizard.
This screen tells you what your Internet IP address is (the WAN IP), and you will note that the menu bar at the top of the page now shows the Internet Status as connected. For the review, there is really one bit of configuration left to do. During the course of reviewing hardware we tend to swap kit in and out several times, we generally prefer to run the routers on the same IP address (192.168.0.1). This is easily accomplished by clicking the LAN Settings link on the left hand menu of the Belkins web setup and altering the routers IP address.

The router is clever enough to alter the DHCP server IP ranges to match the new LAN IP address of the router. Once the changes were applied it took around a minute for the router to restart, during which time the wireless signal dropped, but once this reconnected the PC was assigned an IP address in the new range of 192.168.0.x.

SOURCE: unable to unistall to reinstall new driver

I think your best bet would be to disable the network adapter in "Device Manager". Install the driver that you want to use, then restart the PC and see if it sets it up with the driver you want. I don't know if "Vista" has the "Driver Rollback" feature, but if it does you may can try that also. I'm thinking the reason error messages occur when you're trying to uninstall that driver is because it's in use and needs to first be disabled. I'm not too familiar with Vista cause I've heard many bad things about it and didn't want to chance it, so unfortunately I can only give you my best guess ... hope this helps

Belkin Router Connection Issue


well.. if you have a laptop, or a pc, you better have in those a wifi modem built in your computer.. most of the laptops now have those things already integrated, and PCs.. well, youll have to buy a PCI card to suit you better... if you dont, youll need to buy a wifi modem...

then, if you used to have your internet connection through wire to your computer, youll have to unplug that and plug it into your belkin router...

then, if you have the wifi modem in your computer, there will be an icon in the task bar (where the clock is) where you can see all wireless conections..
find yours and you are done..
if you need more help, dont hesitate to ask.. ill be alert..

I have a belkin play 600n and it does not light up the green light when hard drives and printers are attached in the usb port. what is the issue.


Hi,

When we plug in any USB hard drive or printer, sometimes in this router it will not show the light but the hard driver/printer will be getting deducted.

But if its not getting deducted, then follow these steps,

1. Open up the internet explorer in the comp in which you are online and clear the address bar and type in the number 192.168.2.1 and hit enter. You will be logged into the Belkin router setup page.

2. In the left hand side click on Firewall , when its asking for the password to login, leave the password as blank and click on submit

3. You will find the firewall: ENABLED, change it to DISABLED and click on apply changes.

4. Then power cycle the router for 30 sec (Unplug the power cable of the router and plug it back in after 30 sec)

5. See whether the hard drive/printer is getting deducted even if there is no light for the USB in the back of the router.

6. Still if its not getting deducted, then disable the Firewall in your computer (Windows and other third party firewall like NORTON, SPYWARE, or other antivirus software.)

7. If still if its not getting deducted, Uninstall the Belkin router Monitor software from the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS and then reinstall it using the CD.

8. Right click on the Belkin Belkin router Monitor icon on the lower right bottom corner in the task bar and click on CONNECTED USB DEVICES.

It will be deducted, if not the its obvious the router USB slot is defective. Replace the router in the stores if you have bought it within 30 days or contact BELKIN technical support 1 800 2235546(toll free) and get your router replaced.


With regards,

Prema.

Belkin router will not load onto desktop computer for use with wireless laptop


Please provide more detail information as to your issue.
there is not enough here to give a complete solution to your issue.

If you are having a issue with the CD then you will have to download the information directly from the site via a hard connection that is via the Ethernet cable plugged directly to the router.

How can i check if my belkin router is connected to the computer properly.my sons laptop is no longer getting the internet from the computer and router downstairs it was perfect a few days ago


Try rebooting the router and the laptop. Go onto the laptop after rebooted and try a repair on the wireless network. Typically the wireless icon will be in the lower right hand corner on the task bar. If you right click on it, you should see a repair option. Another thing to check is an actual on/off switch for the wireless on the laptop itself. Most laptops have a switch or button to turn wireless on and off. If that doesn't work then you can try going to command prompt and typing in ipconfig /flushdns. There are more options if none of that works - write back if its still an issue! Thanks.
