Help! my connection was fine yesterday but I was told I should update my firmware because my other computer is running vista and I have not found a good firewall for it yet. So, I did that today. My main computer is connect to the dlink and it works fine. The other is a wirelss connection running vista. When I booted it up after new firmware. It lost the network setting. When I tried to reconnect said " connection is not secure" and would not let me connect? Help! Thanks in advance Sandymcc

Hi, there is nothing to worry..... all ya have to do is , ya need to try to connect with the unsecured wireless connection in order to check the functionality of the wirelees part. If it allows ya to connect, then ya need to log into the wless routers configuration page and go into the security option and choose the security--WEP(64 or 128 BIT)and make a note of the key which gets generated in the key coulmns, any one key- preferably the first key and save the settings. n when ya' try to connect with wless computer it will ask ya the security key , plz enter the same key on yor wless comp- the same key which ya ve noted down. "confirm the key"- same key. and it will show ya a staus "wless is now connected".

It must be something to do with your firewall not allowing a connection, it should have to be allowed as it thinks the router is trying to attack your pc. You may find it connects if you dissable your firewall programme, if so you know it's not a router problem

D-link WBR-2310 wont set up. A long time ago when we first bought this router, we had it set up and working fine. We kept getting disconnections every now and then so we bought a new Belkin router, which...

The issue I see is that the lights all are lighting up. I'd bet it is caused by some type of short or like a power outage or surge (remember surge protectors basically do nothing at all). If I were to guess, that's it. Other than that, I would flash the firmware back to original if it lets me.

Playstation 3 disconnecting from wireless gaming

Linksys loves to ship their routers with out-dated firmware. If you haven't updated the firmware of your router, that would be the first thing I'd do. From what I've read about routers and PS3, a lot of routers had trouble when they came out but had firmware updates to resolve the problem.

You'll need to go to the below link and select your version to get firmware downloads specific to your Model router and version number. The version number is listed on the bottom of your router next to the model.


Be sure to read up on how to update the firmware and be sure you only update the firmware from a computer connected via WIRED connection to the router. Doing it wirelessly will cause disconnection from the router mid update and will cause your router to become a paper-weight!


The above link is a good website to find out a lot of information about Linksys routers and how to secure/update/configure them.

Laptop connected to WiFi yesterday but now cannot

try rolling back to the previous driver and also uninstalling and reinstalling the last driver update try this last in safe mode (try one thing at a time and test)

although you got an odd problem... because you're mom laptop is fine so it's gotta be on your computer... mmmm.. still worth a try i think.

good luck!! post your findings for follow up!!

My Belkin F5D8053 is working in low strength

If you're encountering a very internet connection on your router, this is can be a problem with either the internet connection from your modem or the firmware of the router should be updated, first thing that you can try is to update the firmware of the firmware of the router, you can download the latest firmware of it from Belkin web site then after that observe the connection if you still have a slow internet using the router , Try to check now the internet from your modem by connecting a computer directly to your modem and if you still have the same problem internet connection from your ISP is the problem so you can contact them about that..........
