I have a no name wireless router.I need to update it's firmware or verify that it is supported by ddwrt.

How do I figure out the real manufacturer for my router? It's FCC ID is NDD9562040507.

I opened the case, but there are several components with numbers. The biggest chip is RTL8186 57235S1 531C.

My Cisco e2100l wireless router sometimes refuses to accept new DHCP connections (wired or wireless) especially from mac products. Existing connections continue to work but the router doesn't respond when...


The stock firmware tends to be a little buggy. If power cycling works for you, then you should consider doing a routine power cycle every week. Alternatively you could consider installing custom firmware like DDWRT.

As for the DHCP problem try using static IPs instead.

download this file on desktop , you will not be able to open the page
NOTE:do it on a hard wired computer then open the IE and type just numbers 192.168.2.1 you will get a belkin screen - (left side bottom under utilites -make a backup , that is good) once you made a backup click on firmware update and click on browse and locate the file which you have downloded . once you find the file name on the text box click update - it will take a minute to update. once updated left side click on reset factory default and router will get reset and return to the same page -now the router will be in default settings and reconfigure the router by choosing connection type as pppoe (like telstra) or dyamic (provided by isp ) make sure you type the right user name and password .
THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE RESET : go to connection type and check user name and password coz it will be gone after a reset
after reset the wireless will be in default mode - so after reset please reconfigure the wireless part also with a new ssid(imp) and password if needed.
try it tony but everything will be fine only with a successful update of firmware and after firmware reset is important

Error code #51031


Error Code: 51031
The only wireless network within range of your Wii console is not configured or is not compatible with the Wii.
  • Check for interference that may be preventing a successful connection. Click here for tips.

  • Check to see if the router you are using is a known to be incompatible. Click here to view our list. If your router is known to be incompatible, we recommend using a different router if possible.

  • Make sure that the SSID (network name) matches exactly to what you have entered in the Wii console's settings. To verify:
    1. Login to your router's settings (click here and select your router, if available, for information).
    2. Look for the section for SSID (typically in the "wireless settings" area).
    3. After you find the SSID (network name), verify in the manual settings of the Wii console that the SSID appears exactly as listed in the consumer's router. This includes making sure capitalization, spaces, or special characters match exactly.


  • Look up your router, if available, in our list of wireless routers, and check for any special notes that may be necesary to get the connection to work properly.

  • The router may not be assigning an IP address to the Wii console, and a connection using the "Manual Settings" may be necessary. Click here for help.

  • Your router may require a firmware update to work properly with the Wii console. Firmware updates can usually be found on the router manufactruer's website; consult the manufacturer for more information.

Encryption on/off


First you must choose a common encryption strategy for your home network. (Yes I am assuming Home Network)

In most consumer routers you activate encryption on the wireless services of the router. After doing so you must also actiate encryption services on the wireless adapters that communicate with the wireless router. The names of the encryption services in the wireless router and wireless adapter are WPA and WEP. It is important to assure all wireless adapters to connect to the wireless router can handle the encryption chosen because the router will only perform one. There are options within each technique such as the number of bits of the keys -- the longer the better but only as long as the shortest device can support. WPA is preferable to WEP because it was designed to correct weaknesses in the WEP standard and implementation. However if there is even a single device to be connected that cannot do WPA you must do WEP or replace the device WPA in home systems often have a couple of other attribute being WPA-PSK and algorithm of TKIP -- which again every wireless adapter and the wireless router/access point must support.

To procede further in a sane manner you need to identify all wireless devices that will participate in your wireless network and determine their capablities for encryption. This is generally done searching manufacturer websites under support looking for user guides and firmware updates. Sometimes a devices capabilities in the manual require firmware updates to be true for the device. Once that is figured out the standards for your network can be set and the actual implementation can proceed. You will probably want a working wired computer to maintain access to the outside world for assistance if anything goes wrong. You also want to track your changes and know how to back things out incase things become too difficult.

If you have any additional questions or would like to a review of your plan or assistance determining a plan gather up the appropriate manufacturer's names and models and I will assist as time permits.

I hope this helps.

Zoom X6 wireless router


Hi, With or without the firmware update, the wireless should work and be indicated with the WLAN led. Have you done an update? Have you tried a hard reset? Most routers would require a reset to default after a firmware update. Pls be reminded that when you do a hard reset, all configuration would be lost, better log them down or do a backup. Alternately, you can check your router's web based configuration manager, apparently, there is an enable/disable feature/selection for the WLAN. Verify that is set to enable. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
