Question about Belkin (F5D7233) Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a belkin n+ wireless modem router which has worked brilliantly till today, when I attempted to create an access point at the router which could enable wireless printing to my iMac. I also have a hard wired PC to the router which I am using now. I followed instructions in router setup page, but somehow changed the wireless address of the router to 192.168.2.254. There was a 50 sec time out which I felt a little uncomfortable about - anyway at this point both my PC and iMac disconnected from the internet. I managed to reinstall my PC using the setup disc and I am now connected. But I cannot get the imac to talk to the router, using either 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.2.254. Can you help please ? Chris

You can Convert the Router as an Access Point But your Wireless Modem Should Be Hard wired to router. But if your Router has an wireless Bridge Option in it you can Convert it as an Range Extender. Check For the Wireless Bridging Feature on your Router or Please Post your Router's Model Number Here. I Will Be Glad to Help you out... :)

1. Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings

I have a normal small phone connection but the router takes a large er pin connector. what can I do


Ahh, now I understand. Somewhere in the instructions, you need to turn your Belkin into a Wireless Access Point. The Netgear is your MODEM and router. It's the interface to your DSL line. Since it already has a router, the only thing you gain from the Belkin is wireless access.

There shoud be instructions to either turn off the router in the Netgear, or convert the Belkin to a WAP. I'd do the Belkin.

The wireless network is being picked up by the laptops in the house, but there is no internet connection between the modem and the router. MY router is a Belkin G Wireless


if you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

When you say the networking is fine, I assume that you can connect all wireless devices together and access the router menu on IP 192.168.2.2 (refer page 23)

Is it possible that when you connect the router to the modem that both are trying to assign an IP to the other?

My router is set to get it's WAN IP from the modem (it's a d-link though)

refer to the manual on page 28- try setting the WAN/internet setting to dynamic. You should leave the host name blank and not clone the MAC address.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
