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

3 Answers

Use Belkin f5d7230-4 as a wireless access point

I have a linksys wrt160n router, and I'd like to add my belkin f5d7230-4 router on as a wireless AP, basically to extend the range of the current network. I have tried configuring the belkin as an access point through the web utility and have assigned it an IP there at the top end of the range assigned by the linksys DHCP server. Currently, the linksys router can see it when it's connected via ethernet cable but not when it's disconnected. Any suggestions for configuring either router?

Hi Druid,

Based upon what I've read regarding and experience with the F5D7230-4 is it will only work with another F5D7230-4 or F5D7231-4, F5D7130, F5D7132 and this are all Belkin products as well I thiink it has something to do with the WDS compliance for this specific model that's why they have clearly specified on the User Guide which devices are guaranteed to work with an F5D7230-4 that is set to AP Mode(Bridge/Repeater).

If you really want to exend the wireless coverage of your Linksys router I suggest you try the Wireless G Range expander(WRE54G v2.0/3.0 version 1.0 I do not recommend since it's somewhat challenging to configure since it has no ethernet port all the setup will be done wirelessly)

click this link for the User Guide of your Belkin router.

Pretty sure you have to have at least one router in gateway mode to connect to the internet. An AP allows wireless devices to connect to a wired segment. The same as a router in gateway mode. AP mode has the benefit of extending a networks wireless range. If this is your only device leave it in gateway mode.

Hello...

Steps To Convert your Belkin Router as an Access Point.

- Connect your D - Link Router to your PC & Check the Default Gateway It Might Be 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1

( Finding Default Gateway: Right Click on Local Area Connection & click on Status - Click on Details For Win 7 & Win Vista & For Win Xp - Right Click on Local Area Connection & Click on Status, Select Support Tab & Click on Details )

- Now Connect the Belkin router to your Com .. Open Internet Browser & Go to 192.168.2.1

- Towards your Left Corner Under Wireless Clink on Use as Access Point

- It will Prompt you For a Password Leave it Blank & Click on Submit

- Select the Radio Button Next to Enable

- In Specify IP Address Type in IP Address in Range of your D - Link Router Eg: 192.168.0.254

- Select Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0

- Click on Apply Changes

- Now Open the Router Setup Page Using the Ip Address which you gave EG: 192.168.0.254

- Connect an Ethernet cable From your D - Link Router to Any 1 of the Wired Slots on the Router ( Note: We are using Wired Slot as we have Disabled the NAT on the Belkin Router It Gives you IP Address From your D - Link Router & the DHCP on the Belkin Router is Turned Off)

- Power cycle the D- Link Router & Belkin Router For 15 Seconds Each ( Unplug the Power cable & Plug it Back After 15 Seconds)

- Now go to the Router Setup Page & Check the Internet Status in the Top Right Corner It Would Be Connected.

- Try Going Online... :)

Connect belkin f5d7130 to homehub 1.5


You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.

Would a neighbors linksys router interfere with my belkin connection?


do check the signal strength of the wireless connection..you can improve signal by removing any big objects between the compu and the router/access point and/or re positioning the router.also intervening walls will affect signal..the fact that you are getting a linksys signal impilies that your home network signal is weak..hope it helps!

We've just moved house and have aquired to belking routers a belkin wireless pre n and a belkin ADSL G Plus MIMO I want to use the latter as a bridge how can I?


You need to access the setup page of your Belking router and go to the wireless setup, look fro Use as Access Point, now just a reminder this will defeat the NAT IP sharing feature of the router. Configure the IP address of the router to the same subnet as the network your tying to bridge here's the more detailed procedure:

1. Enable the AP mode by selecting "Enable" in the Use Access Point only page. When you select this option you can now change the IP Settings.

2. Set your IP settings to match your network. Click "Apply Changes"

3. Connect a cable from the LAN port of the router to your existing network.

Belikin adapters and a wireless gateway


If your router is not wireless capable you need to add "wireless access point" on your network so that your wireless computers will be able to connect wirelessly to your network. You can buy WAP54G of Linksys or other brand of WAP(wireless access point).

WIFI PHONE NOT RECOGNISING BELKIN WIRELSS ROUTER


the router is not configured by default as an access point.
to use the phone the router must be configured as an access point, which is more than disabling security, nat and dhcp must be removed..
page 53 of the user manual describes the proceedure.

How to set up network on belkin G+ wireless usb adapter


do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?

This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.

something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.

If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01

or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22

Unable to get connected to Belkin f5d6130 AP


Hi,

You need to be connected using  wired Ethernet (PC's LAN card to Router's Ethernet Port (at the back)).  This is the preferable INITIAL way to configure the router before going wireless. Also it would be to your advantage to initially set your PC (that will be used for configuring the router)  to "Specify an IP address" (static settings) and not "Obtain an IP address automatically."

For a PC connected via UTP networking cable attached to a Belkin F5D6130 AP, the networking settings could be:
IP Address 192.168.2.2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 19*2.168.2.1
DNS Server 192.168.2.1
Reboot

Post back results. Good luck and kind regards.
