Few things

First reboot the router

  • Remove power from the router
  • Wait 30 seconds
  • Reapply power

Many consumer routers are filled with bugs and tend to randomly lock up

Next you will want to log into the router and change your channel
  • enter in your web browser - default IP address
  • Username: admin
  • Password: leave_blank
  • Click on the Wireless button
  • Change the Channel to 1,6,or 11  - by default routers (here in the states) come on many people use this, change it to 1 or 11 for better results
  • Click apply and reboot router again

These two procedures should solve your problem.  You should also always update to the latest firmware for your device.  New firmware will keep your router running as bug free as possible.

Go here:
  • and select your model and version
  • download the firmware file
  • Log back into router with a WIRED connection (not wireless)
  • Click on Tools and then Firmware and follow the instruction to upload the file to the router

I hope this helps,

How can I use It wider range? ( not to extend another apple router but antenna or setup )

The airport routers have built in antennas and external antennas cannot be attached. For wider range, place the router high up and away from glass, metal, and stone. Try changing wireless channels to lessen interference.

HP Elitebook and Apple Extreme wireless connection isssue.

You may want to see if you are able to change the preamble on computer and the router to use short preamble. If you are using Windows you can go to the network connections to check the advance properties of your wireless card. As for the Apple Airport Extreme you will have to contact Apple for information if your router can change the preamble.

You are in high school, your friend is acting like a child. Ask him what you did, and if he won't tell you, go away for a while and wait for him to either calm down or find a new friend.

Is too short for her MacBook Pro. -Thanks.

I would recommend purchasing a newer router that is more powerful. The Apple Airport Extreme is a fantastic router. If none of these choices work then you can either connect your Macbook via ethernet or move it closer to your router. here is the Apple Airport Extreme.

I just bought the airport extreme and now my computer internet goes in and out constanly. I have rewired the house, had the telephone repairmen out twice, and had my DSL people on the line countless...

Try a different antenna configuration.
I just read an article in last weeks Micro Mart magazine.
It was very surprising how the signal strength and range can alter depending on the type and angle the antenna are set at. If there are 2 antennas, angle them at 90 degrees to each other in a V shape, also try fixing them horizontal rather than vertical.

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.

Very short range of wireless network


Your Belkin Wireless router being an RX/TX device follows the basic rules of radio communication:
1. LOS - line of sight range; anything in between the router and the laptops such as doors, walls, drapes, foliage is an obstacle that reduces the signal strength to a certain degree;
2. Height is might, the higher the router the better;
3. Antenna, the more exposed the further the range. Internal antennas such as in most laptops reduce both receive and transmit. Likewise, placing the router in a shelf or cabinet reduces antenna exposure. How you position (orient the antenna also plays a role in coverage. Some materials will reflect radio signals and change antenna radiation pattern.

A few things you can try to improve coverage:
a. Mount the router to the highest practical position;
b. ensure that there are no obstruction between router and laptop;
c. position router to approximate practical center between two furthest laptops;
d. install an external antenna if the Belkin would allow;
e. Replace the F5D7230-4 with another with more punch such as a LinkSys WRT300N; and/or
f. In really extreme range, install repeaters.

Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
