It is possible that the settings for your ISP is already gone or the router is not recognizing the settings.

Oh by the way who'se your ISP, is it cable or dsl internet?

For cable internet the router's internet/WAN connection type must be set to "Dynamic" for DSL internet there are some that will require you to setup your userID and password given to you by your ISP, to do this just change the connection type to PPPoE and fill out the required fileds(usually it just the userID and password from your ISP).

To access your router setup page, just open internet explorer on your computer(given that its connected wireless or wired to the router) and type http://192.168.2.1 . Type admin for the password and leave the password blank.

When i try to use the internet on my stuff it does not work


If all of your stuff has been working fine until now, try unplugging the router for a few mintues and then plugging it back in. Then restart each of your devices. If you've already done all of this, then it is possible your router has died.

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

Because of you getting a new computer, you need to reaccess your router's administrative options to make sure that it pulls the correct IP address and all your computers that are connected use the correct password encryption. For details follow the instructions below:

Connection


Update the firmware on the router to the latest version available on Belkin's website. Do this over a wired connection, NOT wireless. Also, make sure that your modem is not the issue.

Belkin F5D9230-4 router with xbox live


I was having troubles with a belkin router as well. i called belkin tech support and they never helped as they would not accept that the router was the problem. i found i could connect the xbox directly to a modem and it would work fine but when i connected it through the router it would always disconnect from games or not allow me to join a game, only host them, with no one else joining. no matter if i forwarded the appropriate ports, put the specific ip address into the dmz or even turn upnp on (i've tried different combos of each, all on at same time, to even setting up manually) and nothing would change. I found that the router had an option to turn off NAT which belkin told me would render the router useless.  I decided to go against them, turned it off and set the ip and dns to go with the modem. Now everything works fine as the router just acts as an expensive multi plug and wireless system. all the computers in the house can connect to the internet at the same time and access eachothers hard drives and i can access xbox live fine with no problems. there is also no lag when playing gtaIV multiplayer with 15 other players.  i hate belkin tech support and i will not pay for another expensive multi plug connector from belkin... ever.
