For that first uninstall wireless driver then reinstall it.
If still same then you need to change channel type in router.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->Channel type set it to 3 or 6 or 11 then save and restart .

Belkin N+N storage router doesn't work wirelessly


Hi, I had something like that with my Belkin Router N+N with USB F6D6230-4 V1, only I had a configuration wit a wired XP pc, Wireless XP and Wireless Vista. With both XP pc’s it was really plug and play, but with the Vista pc I had some problems to access the on the router connected USB drive. The Vista pc was connected to the network, and had Inet access. Other shared (network) drives were accessible on the Vista pc.

The first thing I tried was if I could access the drive trough its IP address, (\\routerIP in my case \\192.168.2.1), and I did get a question for a username and password. The only thing is that I tried all the regular names like Admin, Administrator, and so on, with my password but I did not get access.
On the internet there was no help to find for this model router on the Belkin websites (diverent country’s), the data on the Belkin websites is out of date, there is no support to find for new models. ………. So finely I did took the phone and did call the support desk…

Solution to my problem:
The problem seems to be in the Belkin storage manager program, that program works not correct under Vista. When I enter the routers IP and use the username “guest” without a password, it get access to it from my Vista pc. The follow thing I did was press the right mouse button on the drive, and press on “make connection” So..

\\RouterIP
Username : guest
Password : none


Hope, that this is also the solution to your problem.

Can't connect to my router anymore (WEP encrypted).


Hi deray953,

First we need to remove the previous profile in your wireless network. I believe you know the SSID for wireless connection using WEP security. You can check this by going to;

Using Windows XP SP2/3
1. "Control Panel" > Switch control panel to classic view ( look at the upper left side ). > Double click "Network Connections" > Right click "Wireless Network Connections" > choose "Properties"> Click the Tab "Wireless Networks" ( middle tab) > go to the list of profiles and remove the Wireless name or SSID for your home connections. > click OK and Close the properties of wireless.

To reconnect again, you need to know your WEP key or network key for wireless connections if not, you can do this procedure...

1.Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
d. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
e. take note of the KEY 1 ...that is your WEP key..take note of it.

Upgrade the computer to SP2 and then check the firewall settings after the upgrade. Turn off the firewall and see if you can connect then. I you still have a problem I would check the computer for viruses with a free online virus checker or with Trinity Rescue CD.

I cannot creat a wireless network


What OS are you running? If XP:



There are two ways to configure your wireless router: using Windows Connect Now and manually.

• If you don't have a router that supports Windows Connect Now, you need to manually configure your router:
1.
Using the network cable that came with your wireless router, temporarily connect your computer to one of the wired network ports on your wireless router (any port that isnt labeled Internet, WAN, or WLAN).
2.
Turn your computer on; it will automatically connect to your router.
3.
Open Microsoft Internet Explorer and type in the address to configure your router, as described in your router's instruction manual.
4.
Create a password if a prompt appears. The address and password you use will vary depending on what type of router you have, so refer to the instructions included with your router.

Here is the general login user and passwords

3Com
http://192.168.1.1
admin

D-Link
http://192.168.0.1

password


Internet Explorer will show your router's configuration page. Most of the default settings should be fine, but you should configure three items:
Set your wireless network name (known as the SSID) to something unique that does not identify your name or address.
Enable Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) encryption to help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network.
Note: We don't recommend using WEP. WPA-2 is more secure. If you try WPA-2 and it doesn’t work, we recommend that you upgrade your network adapter to one that works with WPA-2.
Set your administrative password to prevent others from configuring your router.
The exact steps you follow will vary depending on the type of router you have. After each configuration setting (SSID, WEP, and administrative password), be sure you click Save Settings, Apply, or OK to save your changes.
Note: The pictures in this section show Linksys wireless equipment. Equipment from other manufacturers will vary in appearance. For example, to save your settings in Linksys, you click Save Settings. Other equipment may have a different display, and you may have to click Apply or OK.
SSID or naming your networkA service set identifier, or SSID, identifies your network. Choose a unique name that you're confident none of your neighbors will use, but don't specify your name or your address. This is not a security tool, so you don't need to make the SSID complex.


Help prevent uninvited guests from connecting to your wireless network. To learn how, read Implement WPA2-Personal wireless security on a Windows XP SP2-based computer.


Administrative passwordThe last configuration change you should make is to the administrative password. Just like any other password, the administrative password should not be a word you can find in the dictionary, and it should be a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Be sure you can remember this password, because you'll need it if you ever have to change your router's settings.


Connect your computers and devicesIf your computer does not have wireless network support built in, you can install a wired or a wireless network adapter. Windows XP will automatically detect the new adapter and might prompt you to insert the CD that came with it. The on-screen instructions will guide you through the configuration process.
Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2) is not required for wireless networking, but it does make setting one up much easier. SP2 also helps protect you against viruses, worms, and other Internet intruders. To install SP2, visit Microsoft Update. The steps below apply only if you're using SP2. Windows XP will show an icon with a notification that says it has found wireless networks.


To connect your computer to your wireless network
1.
Right-click the wireless network icon in the lower right corner of your screen, and then click View Available Wireless Networks


2.
The Wireless Network Connection window appears and displays your wireless network listed with the SSID you chose. If you don't see your network, click Refresh network list in the upper left corner. Click your network, and then click Connect in the lower right corner.


3. Windows XP prompts you to enter a key. Type the encryption key that you wrote down earlier in both the Network key and Confirm network key boxes, and then click Connect.


Windows XP will show its progress as it connects to your network. If the Wireless Network Connection window continues to show Acquiring Network Address, you may have mistyped the encryption key—click Cancel and return to step 3.



After you're connected, you can close the Wireless Network Connection window. Now you're ready to browse the Web wirelessly. You can also create a wireless network in your home that connects your computers, printers, cameras, games, and other accessories for easy access and enjoyment.
