We has a wireless Belkin F5E8231-4_US_2.01.13. We have one wireless computer and three wired. We use a cable modem. Each computer has problems losing the signal while remotely connected. Two of them use gotomypc and two use a different program, but each temporary looses the connection. The cable company has replaced the modem and says their signal is fine. Problem has started within the last couple of months. Is there a router setting we should look at? Problems seem to occur since cable company upgraded their local service.

Use an Ethernet cable from the CLEAR modem into the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the Belkin.
Take a close look at the 8 coloured wires at each end of the Ethernet cable.
The 8 wires must be coloured in the _same_ order at both ends.
Be sure that you have a 'CAT-5' or 'CAT-5E' cable, not a 'CAT-3' cable, which is much slower, over long distances.
Use another Ethernet cable from one of the (three? four?) 'LAN' ports on the Belkin to the network-port on your computer. Again, check that you have a "straight-through" cable, not a "cross-over" cable.
Turn the CLEAR modem off.
Turn the Belkin off.
Turn your computer off.
Turn the CLEAR modem on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn the Belkin on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn your computer on, and let it boot.
You now should have Internet access.
Note that the router "dynamically" shares the Internet connection.
If there are 4 'LAN' ports, then each of the LAN ports gets as much speed as it needs;
you do not have a 25/25/25/25 split, unlike cutting-up an apple-pie to feed 4 people.
Run a "speed-test" on your computer, and you should be getting as much speed as you are paying for. Having the Belkin in the "middle" of your network should *NOT* slow-down the speed-test at all.
To get the connection back all you need to do is just connect the modem to the router to the yello port & computer to any gray port on the router.
& unplugg the power from the router first & then from the cable modem. Wait 30sec & plug the power to the cable modem first & then once the modem is on completly plug the power to the belkin router.
The light will turn green & start working.
This is an intermittent connection.
To avoid this happening over & over kindly update the firmware in the router.
you can login to the belkin.com/support web site to download & know the procedures to update the firmware in the router.
I would suggest taking a look at your modem LEDs. What happens exactly when you lose connection? A look at the LEDs should give you some thought as what might be causing this. You can also try resetting your Belkin to default factory settings by pressing the Reset button at the back for 30 seconds, and then putting back your Belkin settings.
Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!
WIRELESS LIGHT WILL LIT UP IF YOU CONNECT ANY ANY WIRELESS DEVICE TO THE ROUTER.. FOR EX: YOU CAN SEE WIRED LIGHT LITTED UP BECAUSE YOU CONNECTED A COMPUTER WITH HELP OF ETHERNET CABLE.. IN THE SAME IT WILL WORK...
Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network. First, connect to Belkin's wireless network that you can scan. After you connect, try to go online It ll work...
You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
