Question about Belkin Basic Wireless Router

2 Answers

I have a Belkin F507231-4, I have used it without any issues till last Friday April 1st, First it just seemed it just had a little hiccup and would go down, then it became more fequently and I just rebooted it. Then Sunday night I couldn't get an internet connection on either computer. I have road runner through Time Warner so I called tech support with them....at 1:30am no less because I had a research paper due.They checked my configurations and resent my signal but the issue was the router and it kept messing with my modem. Please let me know if there is hope for the little guy. Thanks so much

    I am sorry that it is probably my lack of technical knowledge that may be part of my issue, butI did receive a prompt response for krishmaqvan regarding my issue with my Belkin F507231-4 router and the inability to function properly and the fact that it is also seems to be corrupting my cable modem. The follow-up from me is that I am either not correctly following her instructions(which is probable) or that there is another problem that I don't understand. When I enter the linkhttp://192.168.1.1 I am not sure what I am supposed to do at that point, the search that appears has numerous sites and I have looked through them and as I said I feel very stupid as I just can't seem to figure out what I am supposed to do at this point. So sorry for my illiteracy in this area. Thanks for your patience.

Good news/bad news likely here. I don't think it's the router.
Unfortunately you aren't alone in the "my system has been messing up since April 1st" club.
There were a number of viruses that launched themselves on April 1st.
These could have been picked up months ago and laid dormant for ages until Apr. 1st, when they assembled themselves (while dormant, they lay encrypted in several pieces to avoid detection by Anti-Virus programs) and immediately disabled their detection in the most common anti-virus programs.
Get Malware Bytes free edition and Spybot Search and Destroy from these links.
If everything comes back clean, post a reply here.
I suggest downloading the software from a known working clean machine and burning it to a CD (the virus could infect the software if it's on a writeable device like a thumb drive) and installing it from the CD in safe mode on the suspect machines.
Do one machine at a time to avoid cleaning and being reinfected by a networked system.

Safe mode is entered by hitting F8 just as the system is starting to load the operating system and choosing safe mode. (personally, I repeatedly hit it because the timing is tricky!).

Hope this helps you out!

For that first press RESET button of route for 10 seconds .
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 and enable it. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

Rented property without a lease agreement. Tenant refuses to vacate property on date agreed upon. What recourse do I have without a ease in Ogunquit, ME


Hi Jim:
I'd recommend you contact the local Government Agent's office or Court house to determine your legal position.
I would suggest that you immediately state the specifics of your agreement with them IN WRITING, and serve them with a WRITTEN NOTICE IF TERMINATION OF RENTAL AGREEMENT, including the date that they must be out of the property.
Best of luck.

Tried to change to daylight saving time, but it keeps changing back to standard time.


Hi Joyce,

Your device *might* be pre-programed to adjust for ST to DST changes on another date. In 2006, the ST to DST change took place on the 1st Sunday in April and the DST to ST change took place on the last Sunday in October for the last time.

Congress decided that beginning in 2007, that the ST to DST change would take place on the second Sunday in March and DST / ST change back would take place on the first Sunday in October - and has ever since. So, you'll likely see the mismatched time again in November.

If it worked last year - then there is another issue. Unfortunately, without your brand and model, there's little anyone can do to help you out. If you need more help, reply and be sure to include the brand / model info of the device.

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...


Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

Belkin F5D8236-4 Wireless Router will not connect to pannaway dsl modem with same settings as router I am replacing. Dynamic IP address setup. Modem light continously blinks orange. No internet light.


1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway.
(I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254)
I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection
But it won't work!
Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password.
Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.
