Question about Belkin PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a F5D9230-4 and a few months ago got a WII. I've tried to get the WII set up to go wireless thru my router to their website. It accepts everything but when it tries a connect test it fails and says it can't get a connection. I also see no evidence that it has routed thru. Of Course they say the problem is in my router. Can you help??

  1. Turn of wireless security in the router, see if you can get the Wii to work UNSECURE.
  2. If the Wii, connects with security turned off, then enable security on the router (WPA is recommended) and a 10 digit key (I use an onld phone number from my childhood)
  3. Go back to internet settings on the Wii, select the wireless configuration you were using, click advanced, and enter the WPA key.
  4. Test connection Wii should work

Wii, im getting a error code 52130


This error is caused by a wireless router firewall issue.

To solve this error, try to manually setup the Wii console using your network IP settings.

To do a manual setup of the Wii console using your network IP settings :

  • First, go to your PC, click Start > Run > type CMD and press Enter > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter. On Windows Vista, click Start > type CMD in the Start Search box > click on CMD icon > type IPCONFIG/ALL and press Enter.
  • Locate IP settings and use them to manually set the Wii console.
  • Restart your wireless router by unpluging the power from the wall and plugging it back in. Try to connect the Wii console to the internet.
Hope this helps!

It's probably the wrong ip address to setup the Actiontec wireless router. Try 192.168.1.254.

I bought a Belkin N Wireless Router F5D8236-4 v2 and changed my internet provider a few months later and I have lost the Installation CD, can I install it without the CD?


Yes you simply need to hook up via an Ethernet cable, open a browser type in the routers address, login with username and password, and then you can edit any setting you like. Then when finished you save settings and reboot router.

I have a Compaq Vista Home Basic desktop set up to a Linksys router for my PS2, PS3 and Wii. I want to set up a second desktop computer (Windows98) that will be wireless also. How do I do that? Thank...


a win98 machine will likely have a rg-45 plug in the back, it's unlikely that may come with wireless network card. just use a straight through cable (the typical network cable) to physically connect the win98 machine to your linksys router, if you don't have any special security on your router, your win98 should be connected after a few seconds.

if you are getting a network card (possilby wireless):
install a network card on your windows 98 computer. if you're buying one make sure in the package says that it is supported by win98 (most are supported in win2k, xp, vista and 7 now so look closely before buying),

if you already have a network card and you are trying to install it, look for proper drivers from the network card manufacturer (drivers need to match model number and operating system(win98)). install your network card as per indicated in package or website if you are downloading drivers.

if you are connecting wirelessly, assuming that drivers are properly connected look in the network manager you just installed and look for the network name for your linksys router (whatever you configure that to be when your first install the linksys router) and attemtp to connect providing a password or any security requested.

in a nutshell that's what you need to do!

My wireless settings got changed and need to re configure


You need to make sure that the settings on you laptop match settings on your router. You can log in to your router by opening your browser (from computer connected to router) and type 192.168.1.1 in the address. If you haven't been in it before the user name should be "admin" and the password is "password". Look for the wireless section and write down setting and enter them in the config for the wireless on your laptop. If you have a friend that may be a little more experienced ask for help. Not to infer that you can't do it I just don't know your expertise.

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

Wireless network


She would need a wireless card. Make sure the 802 standard is the same as the router supports. An n wireless card will not work on a router that is a g. you can also enter the settings of the router to make sure it is set to the accept the standard she uses on her wireless. my linksys can do b and g... but i have it set to only accept g. make sure you set security on the router when you have a connection establish so you aren't sharing your internet with wireless neighbours.
