Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

1 Answer

I have a computer in my upstairs guest room and two computers on the first level of my home. One has a USB adapter and works OK but looses the signal at times. The othe has a PCI card installed and is constantle loosing the signal. When we do get the signal it is weak. I bought a range extender and no matter where I locate it it does not help. I often have to shut down the main PC and unplug the moden and router for a few minutes and then after I plug it all in it works fine for a while.I have made several calls to Belkin and it works for a while and then the same problem. What do I do now.

I have a netgear router and a belkin usb network adapter, i am tryng to connect to my computer upstairs but it can't find a signal. The computer upstairs does not come with a cd drive so i was unable...


the usb network adapter probably isn't working properly without drivers.You should be able to get the the drivers for your model adapter at the belkin website under support. Then if your laptop is lacking a cd drive you can just load the drivers on to thumb drive and install them from there. I hope i was able to help.

Low signal on wireless DSL upstairs in my home


Keep in mind that a wireless router is a low-power radio station. As such, the same things that can affect any station may cause signal problems.

The biggest influence is location. The materials and construction techniques used in your home may be cutting into the signal strength, so you may need to relocate the router. The best place is somewhere centrally located, so the distance to any wireless computer is roughly the same. Sometimes moving the router just a foot or so can make a big difference.

It's also possible your wireless network is using the same radio channel as another in the vicinity, and interference is causing problems. Most wireless networks in the US and Canada use channels 1, 6 or 11, and channel 6 is a popular default channel for a router. Change your channel setting in the router, and this may help. (Note that the channel setting is in the router and not in your wireless computer. The adapter in the computer automatically switches channels so it can locate and connect to different networks.)

A third (and remote) possibility is that the wireless adapter in your computer isn't working properly. I have seen computers say low signal when they were in the same room as the router, and a new adapter was the cure. Try moving the router and switching channels first, though, as that will likely take care of the trouble.

Suggestion: Move your router. Your PC 3 appears to be in a 'dead zone' so to speak.

Problem with my router connection


Log into the router from the machine that's wired to it and see if the SSID broadcast for the wireless network is disabled.

You'll need a way for your computer upstairs to connect to the hub/router. You can most likley get away buying a low priced wireless USB adapter like this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833340004
If your router has wireless security (such as WEP Encryption) you'll have to know the (WEP) key and SSID of the device in order to connect.

Getting better signal quality on wireless network?


Under the tab 'wireless' find the strint that says 'Channels', and change to another one (anyone) and then give it a day to see if you lose connection, if you do, go back and change it again. Try downloading the latest drivers and software. The WRT55AG and WRT54AG are known to drop signals. These routers are like cell phones, you have to find a good spot for them.
