You need to get into the router settings (refer to your installation cd for instructions) and choose either WEP, or WPA-PSK, this will be in the security menu, it will then generate a mixture of numbers and letters, these then have to be entered in all the pcs to connect to the router, you will be prompted by windows for the keys when you try to connect

My belkin modem/wireless router model number F5D6833-4 will not always connect to the internet by wireless but operates ok from hard wired lead direct form a port ?


belkins antenna are not very good, put the router on a cupboard where the signal is not blocked surrounding it's area, and remember, doors, walls, floors, windows etc all reduce the signal strength.

If the signal gets below 24 MBPS it may not be able to connect you to the net

I want a secure line for my router on my laptop


While it is impossible to be 100% secure on a wireless network, there are several things that will help. Use the wep encription, use mac filtering and add only the addresses you want to connect. Once you have everything set up, disable broadcasting the SSID, and lastly, change the user name and password on the router. Don't forget to enable the firewall on your laptop. Amother thing you can do is go around with your laptop and map the signal range so that you have an idea where the signal limits are.

I recently purchased a Hawking HSB2 Signal Booster. Two years ago, my son installed a Toshiba Cable modem(PCX2200)and a Belkin Wireless Router(model#F5D7230-4)for Camcast High Speed Internet. The Router...


Booster will only work along with access points in your case the belkin wireless router - you have to connect the device to the router not to the windows xp pc

if you know how to configure and the device are compatiable to each other and allows bridging or can configure as your access point client then you need not wanna to get it connected via wire or T568b standard ethernet cable otherwise you have to connect with this cable will enchance the wireless activity

Wireless signals can go down its strength by any magnetic activity, oscillations such as microwave, powerful steel/metal frames and check your anteena position keep in different direction and check your pc wifi signal strength.

Interlink between your router and booster with utp cables gives you steady flow of data and full band strength.

Aviod using two company devices change the router to Hawking

Belkin products are notorious for breaking down at a high rate. If you wanted to rule out your computer as the culprit, you could install the belking adapter on your laptop (disable the built-in one) and see if it still works. I would also suggest going here:

and typing in your product model # and downloading the latest firmware/software for it. As always, restart your computer.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.
