My computer can't connect to Belkin Router through the wired internet
I did what you have explained to someone else : "All you need to do is turn off your computer. Then turn off your cable/DSL modem and unplug the power. Take the router, position it where you want, and plug in an ethernet cable going from the Modem to the back of the router in a slot labeled Internet. Then power on the modem and let it run for 1 min. Then power on the router, let run for 1 min. Take a second ethernet cable and plug it into your router labeled "1" and into the computer. Turn on the computer and check to see if you have internet. If you do, then you are good to go. "
But it doesn't work, when I do all of this I don't have internet :( please help me.

Use an Ethernet cable from the CLEAR modem into the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the Belkin.
Take a close look at the 8 coloured wires at each end of the Ethernet cable.
The 8 wires must be coloured in the _same_ order at both ends.
Be sure that you have a 'CAT-5' or 'CAT-5E' cable, not a 'CAT-3' cable, which is much slower, over long distances.
Use another Ethernet cable from one of the (three? four?) 'LAN' ports on the Belkin to the network-port on your computer. Again, check that you have a "straight-through" cable, not a "cross-over" cable.
Turn the CLEAR modem off.
Turn the Belkin off.
Turn your computer off.
Turn the CLEAR modem on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn the Belkin on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn your computer on, and let it boot.
You now should have Internet access.
Note that the router "dynamically" shares the Internet connection.
If there are 4 'LAN' ports, then each of the LAN ports gets as much speed as it needs;
you do not have a 25/25/25/25 split, unlike cutting-up an apple-pie to feed 4 people.
Run a "speed-test" on your computer, and you should be getting as much speed as you are paying for. Having the Belkin in the "middle" of your network should *NOT* slow-down the speed-test at all.
Easy, if your modem is connected to your computer right now and internet is working all you need to do is connect your LAN line to your belkin router. the connection should say input, or Internet. after that you will need another LAN wire (These look like telephone cables but the jack plug is larger and will only fit a lan connection on your router or computer) Connect the second wire to the line 1 or outout 1 from your router, to your pc in the slot where the other cable was connected. your internet signal should work.... on your mobil find any available network and log in to your belkin router.
that should do it.... if you haven't set up your internet connection, do that first by installing the drivers for the modem provided by your provider and then complete the process above.
If your Ipod touch will not 'find' your Belkin N router - or it did and then vanished forever try this- it worked for me. 1.Turn wifi off on your computer, ensure you have the latest firmware on your router,reset the router to factory default.Do this using a wired connection from the admin page. 2. Change the SSID name from what it was previously say from Belkin xyz to my router. 3. Power down the router wait about 30 seconds then power it back up. 4. As you reset to factory setting you will need to put in your internet access info again - do this from the admin page. Also set up your security at the same time. 5. Restart the router from the admin page. 6. Unplug wired connection start wifi and connect to your computer -make sure that you have full internet access from you computer - dont forget you need to connect to the newly renamed router. 7. Take ipod and make sure wifi is off. 8. Clear network settings. 9.Turn wifi on and it should find your newly renaned router - join and enter your pass key.
Why it does it I have no idea neither do Belkin or Apple but it worked for me - a trial and error solution !
When facing the router, Globe/Internet LED is on the right. Below are the LED indicators; Check the steps below:
Wireless Security - This light will only turn on if the wireless security is enabled.
Wireless-Computer Status - This light will turn on if a wireless computer is connected to the router.
Wired-computer Status - This light will turn on if a wired computer is connected to the router. Connect the wired computer to any gray port on the router. (There are 4 gray ports).
Router Status - Power light. Solid blue means the router is on and ready.
Modem Status - If this is off, it means the router is not connected to the modem. Make sure the cable is connected from the modem to the yellow port on the router.
Internet Status - This light will indicate if the router is connected to the internet.
If this is the first time you are installing the router, then what is important is to get the router, wired-computer and modem lights ON. Once they are on, you may insert the CD that came with the Belkin router to setup the internet connection and wireless settings.
Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
your desktop can also go onlie using the wireless belkin router,so this router will now act as a distributor,you need to setup the router between the modem and the computer that is wired,i hope that when you say modem it is the one provided to you by your internet service provider,what you need to do is to conect the modem to the router and the router to you desktop computer,you desktop computer will go online using the wired connection to the belkin rotuer and you laptops will use the wireless connection..
My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)
One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless
or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.
There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.
(01) Which of the following is your router? -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet? YES
(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please) only this machine is connected but it is by.... (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)
(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
HP Pavilion dv2500
(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk
(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on? NO
I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
Comming from the Cable (tv) or a phone wire (DSL) from a phone jack you are connected to a modem/whatever supplied by your service provider. Then an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone cable with extra wide connectors (8 metal connectors instead of 2 or 4) connects the modem/whatever to your router's WAN port (the separate port not one of the block of 4) and another ethernet cable connects the one of the outer's Lan ports (probably block of 4) to the desktop computer and your laptop operates wirelessly. Is this correct? If not explain houw this is wired, please. For consistency please start at the cable or phone wire.
Does your desktop do anything to log into the internet with a userid and password maybe?
If so who is your internet service provider?
We may need to change the login process and get it into the router and off the desktop.
