Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter

3 Answers

My Belkin G router ver.8002uk is running successfully on my Vista System Computer. When I used the Belkin set up disc it recommended a change of router name from the default. This I did. However, when I start up and connect to the Belkin, the default name is displayed on my desktop, not the name I changed it to. Reason?

The name which you have changed is the wireless name or SSID. But your desktop shows the routers Hostname because it is a Hard wired computer

Can not change the wireless channel


A very good question!
I'd love to answer this. Belkin utility at times has some bugs. As you said you have downloaded the latest version of drivers and utility. Latest drivers are good but utility will not be of much use, I, as a technician would highly recommend that you use Wireless Zero Configuration in case of Win XP or WLAN Auto-config in case in case of Win Vista or Win 7. But if you have older versions of Windows, older than Win XP, only then utility has to be used. Enable WZC and WLAN A-C in Microsoft Services(Local) page.

Start > Run > services.msc > Ok > Services (Local) > Start the service.

At worst instances, if you are forced to use the utility, remove all SSID (wireless network names) from My Connections. Note: Remove all of them completely.

Also, i would recommend that you configure your wireless mode to be "802.11g only" on the router as F5D7001 is a 802.11g standard PCI card, and also turn ON the wireless PROTECTED MODE on the router. This will enhance the performance of your wireless devices in cases of heavy wireless traffic.

This is sure to work! Again, thanks for such a question.

How to instal a belkin n150 with a series 660 router . I hooked every thing up as described in the quick install guide. put the disc in and it will not go past the first check point.


Are you trying to install the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
MAke sure that your computer is able to go online through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the router ad the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Toshiba wireless sees desktop but desktop cannot see laptop. using belkin wireless


this is not likely a problem with your router, here's a couple of tips (this typically works in xp...hate vista and haven't got ahold of 7 yet)

open command prompt, find your ip info (ipconfig /all) try pinging both computers' ip address (ping 192.168.x.x), then ping the router...if you're using local ip addresses it should be 192.168.0.1 or similar...its likely that one ping the other but not vice versa

MAKE SURE the first three numbers are the same, i had a problem when i missed a 192.168.1.1 vs a 192.168.0.1

If you have not created a home network, i'd recommend it...you don't have to make a network disc like it tells you to but make sure they're setup for the same network (i.e. XPHOME, JOHN'S NETWORK)

if they both still are not communicating after a few minutes, try to connect a hard line between them, set one up as the router and dns...your ip config should look similar to this:
DESKTOP LAPTOP
IP 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.3
SUBNET 255.255.255.0 255.255.255.0
GATEWAY 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2

DNS 192.168.0.2 192.168.0.2
you wont be able to have internet access but I do this to check network integrity, try pinging again, it should work both ways now, set up the network again and then change your gateway and dns back to your router.

I hope this helps, sorry if thats confusing

Earthlink mailbox will not send/receive mail while connected to the Belkin F5D7234-4 ver 3 router.


First, you need to call earthlink and ask port numbers used for incoming and outgoing mail traffic.

Next, you need to call Belkin for assistance on how to open these ports on the router. The router's firewall prohibits access to some of the application ports.

Belkin Wireless connection speed at 11mpbs. Why not 54mpbs?


this is from the d-link support page:
"Question :Why can't I get the advertised speed and performance when in Ad-Hoc mode? 
  
Answer : 

This FAQ applies to 802.11b, 802.11g, and Super G™products.

D-Link wireless products follow the IEEE 802.11 standards. The802.11b and 802.11g standards specify that Ad-Hoc mode only needsto support up to 11Mbps. For best results, use an access point orwireless router and set your adapters to Infrastructure (station)mode."

Router


Hi Joe,

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so if you're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know and I can send you revised instructions.

If your router is broadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in most routers, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You should have an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click on it and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows your network connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X" through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networks in your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this list and it will likely have a name associated with the router's manufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be the network that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. You should now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whether the connection process is completed successfully, you will see a notification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like www.cnn.com.

If the above procedures are not successful, then you will have to get into your router to obtain the correct attributes - or reset your router back to its original factory-set default parameters, which will be documented in their documentation. Unfortunately, Belkin does not reference a "1A359" router on their support site, so I don't know what actual model you have and can't give you specific instructions. Please look at the label on the bottom of your router to find the correct model #.

Hope this helps! Please re-post if it does not or if you have other questions.

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.

Wireless network between vista & xp


Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the drive or folder you want to share. Right-click the drive, and then click Sharing and Security. To open Windows Explorer, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer. To change the name of your folder on the network, type a new name for your folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer. To allow other users to change the files in your shared folder, select the Allow other users to change my files check box.
