Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

Need help configuring LAN and WI-FI settings...

Hi,

I have my router set up and it's been working well for the most part; however, I'm having problems when I want to hook my laptop directly into the router with an ethernet cable.

When I do this, it shows two different connections (WI-FI and LAN), and neither of them work. Is there a way to configure the set up so when the ethernet cable is plugged in, it just uses the LAN connection, and have the WI-FI kick in when there is no LAN connection.

Thanks,

- Nick

The first thing you have to check is if your computer is getting a valid IP address from your router. if your using a windows xp laptop just go to your network connections under control panel then right click the connection you want to check and got to status, click the support tab and it will show you the IP address, subnet mask and default gateway(for windows vista just go to details and look for the IPV4 info)

if your laptop has built in wireless you can just turn it off(theres a switch of a button to turn if on/off) so that your laptop will only be using the ethernet connection. there is not option to automatically switch from one connection to another.

Has anyone been able to get there Crystalview wireless router to work as a wirless extender without a lan wire as advertised


It is capable of extending an existing wi-fi network. You must go to the configuration screen (connect and go to 192.168.2.1 in your web browser), then go into advanced settings > WAN Medium Type and select "Wireless LAN" then input the security key to your existing wi-fi network, click "Open Scan" then select the SSID of your existing wi-fi network and it will connect.

How to connect Wi-Fi on SAMSUNG 5560


Please try these instructions:
Wireless router side
  • 1. Set wireless mode to B-G Mixed
  • 2. Standard Channel = 8
  • 3. Encryption - TKIP

Phone side
  • 1. Delete the configured wireless connection/s if you already have one.
  • 2. Enable wi-fi but do not perform search at the moment
  • 3. Now open the browser and select settings then browser profiles press search for wi-fi.
  • 4. Select the connection that you want to connect to then type the details and match the settings on the router.
  • 5. Auth type = WPA, encryption = TKIP, network key = router pre-shared key, protocol = HTTP, Home URL = address of modem (you can change it later if everything is already working), leave proxy blank, linger = default, adhoc = off, no need to do advance settings.
  • 6. Save the settings and do not connect yet.
  • 7. Exit the browser and go to Wi-Fi and select the connection that you have just configured and select details.
  • 8. Check all the settings if ok. if the channel is different with the router, adjust it on the router to match the one used by the phone. IP address = not connected (it will automatically connect once you browse the internet).
  • 9. Now, try to browse the internet but you must set first the connection you've just configured as default connection.


That's it. I hope that this helps. This applies only to personal wireless network.

Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
      blank.gif
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

How do i protect my unsecured home wi-fi network? I have a Belkin router IP address 192.168.2.1.


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
