Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router
Hi, i was fiddling around with the routers settings ( a terrible sin as i have now dsicovored) trying to set up a static IP. I changed one setting -PPOA to static IP- i think it was something like that. and i now cant acces the internet on my router and when i type in its IP addres i cant accese the router to correct the problem. i tried the reset switch on the bottom, but that didnt help, and i also tried manualy entering the ip address, subnet mask, default gate way and DNS in windows network connection this had no effect. is ther someway i can set it back to the factory default? P.S i have windows xp sp2
Hi, Probably try the other way around. Do not put you PC's IP add to auto but rather to "Use the following IP address" with the following details: IP Address - 192.168.2.2 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway - 192.168.2.1 Of course this is assuming that you have press reset and the router indeed has reset to default factory settings and re-initialized, your LAN cable is good as indicated by the LED indicators both PC side and Router side. With or without DHCP in the router enabled, you should be able to connect to your router via its Web Configuration Utility. Good luck and kind regards.

Pressing and holding the reset button on the router for about 5 seconds should reset the router, but you may need to connect with the router via an RJ45 network cable incase the wireless is not able to set it up The default ip address of the router should then be 192.168.2.1. do not use the windows repair wizard as this totally messes up your pcs ip address, make sure that your network wireless and wired adapters, are set to obtain an ip address automatically You shouldnt change the PPOE or PPOA settings, as they are the settings on which your ISP allows your router to connect to the server. Manually entering an ip address will effect the address of the router so keep the settings as enable DHCP to assign ip addresses automatically. Ensure when you have it running you save the settings so as you can reinstall them if neccasary.

Tips for a great answer:
k i think why its happend probabally there is a port blocking is there in the belkin router so try this set static ip address on the pc in the range of belkin>and login to belkin router and enable DMZ on the belkin router the dmz host ip should be the one which u assigned statically on the pc
