Set your laptop firewall if you are using windows xp, in this case there would be an increase security, and no one can access your file unless it is shared in the network, if you have a shared folder or documents right click the folder and properties and set the security there to allow no one to access the file except for the person you nominated to access you folder. Windows XP firewall can set your security in the way it is protecting your files.

I plugged all my cables from my modem to the router and the internet is still not wanting to work on my laptop. Im still confused as to which plugs go where.


Hi,

Please follow the physical connection setup to get your connection working,

1. Connect the modem cable to the router in the yellow color slot

2. Connect your computer to any one of the grey slot of the router

3. If your Internet Service Provider is cable provider (like Comcast, Cablevision) , then
unscrew the coaxial cable(TV cable) from the cable modem and unplug the power cable from the modem also unplug the power cable of the router then wait for 1min .

4. After a minute first screw in the coaxial cable and the power cable to the cable modem and wait till all the lights comes up on the modem , then turn on the Belkin router.

5. Then the light on the router will be Green , You will be able to access the internet .

Let me know it it works!

Thanks in Advance!

With Regards,
Prema.

Arimex comcast router won't talk to belkin wireless g plus mimo router


Comcast has a little known "trick" that they use when setting up users. Here's how it works:

When Comcast first comes to setup your new cable modem service, they insist on connecting it to your computer and "testing" it. Most people think nothing of it, and that it's good customer service ...truth be told, what they are doing is attaching your computer's MAC address to that cable modem, so that you cannot create a wireless network. This is because they want you to pay them $150 to do this for you.

In this situation, since the modem is a modem/wireless router in one, my guess is that the MAC address on your machine now does not match the MAC address on the new router, which is what Comcast has stored in their database(s).

Try this: on your computer (while connected to the modem), perform a release on your IP address (start, run, cmd, then type "ipconfig /release"). Disconnect the ethernet cable from the computer. Turn computer off completely. Hold down the reset button on the cable modem until it performs a reset. Once it's back up and running, boot up your computer with the cable back in the ethernet port.

The cable modem should assign a new address to your computer. However, that may or may not work ...this is an easy workaround with a Linksys router, but not necessarily with the all-in-one devices.

Worst case scenario: contact Comcast and notify them that the new modem is not recognizing your computer's MAC address and that it needs to be updated in their system. They will scan your computer (through the telnet interface on your modem) and get your computer's MAC address, then (hopefully) make the necessary changes on their end.

After that, everything should work flawlessly. If not, insist on a Comcast tech to "fix" the service that you are paying for.

Good luck - hope this helps :)

Belkin N Wireless Router doesn't connect to Modem


If router is brand new you should have a set up disk. the set up disk will walk you through it or you might log onto Belkin site to see a walk through set up. If you can access internet from modem to router to internet. That means router is functioning properly. To go completely wireless you will need to secure your network and setup your access codes. Definitely use the setup disk to do this. A unsecured wireless network is a nightmare waiting to happen. Good luck

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
