Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)

1 Answer

Belkin Router - Network works for 5 minutes than everything loses internet capability.

I just installed a Belkin f5d8231-4 wireless router.  We have AT&T DSL.  The phone line runs to a Speedstream 5260 modem.  The modem is connected by cable to the router and the router is connected by a cable to the PC.  Everything works great for about 5 minutes.  The PC has internet access and remote devices (iphone and other computers) have internet access.  Then, no device has internet access.  Also, the remote devices no longer pick up the router.

If the cable goes directly from the modem to the PC, I have internet access.  If  I turn the whole system off and start up again, everything works fine for about 5 minutes.

I bought the new Belkin router because the same problem existed with my old Linksys router (which worked fine for about 6 months before this issue arose).

Belkin told me to update the firmware which was done.  AT&T says I have a router problem.  Could this be an issue with the Speedstream 5260 (it is about 5 years old).

Hi,

           This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in  other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE,  but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.

 

plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )

 

 

 

The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:

Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:

SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)

If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.

For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.

UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.

 

 

 

PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE

 

REGARDS.

    Hi Again,



              Well the Issue seems to be with router , and this is a known issue, The router is actaully not able to get the ip from the modem , so it is possible that Firmware upgradation of the router is not done properly or the modem is gone bad.



     



    Hope for good

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
