When we plug in any USB hard drive or printer, sometimes in this router it will not show the light but the hard driver/printer will be getting deducted.

But if its not getting deducted, then follow these steps,

1. Open up the internet explorer in the comp in which you are online and clear the address bar and type in the number and hit enter. You will be logged into the Belkin router setup page.

2. In the left hand side click on Firewall , when its asking for the password to login, leave the password as blank and click on submit

3. You will find the firewall: ENABLED, change it to DISABLED and click on apply changes.

4. Then power cycle the router for 30 sec (Unplug the power cable of the router and plug it back in after 30 sec)

5. See whether the hard drive/printer is getting deducted even if there is no light for the USB in the back of the router.

6. Still if its not getting deducted, then disable the Firewall in your computer (Windows and other third party firewall like NORTON, SPYWARE, or other antivirus software.)

7. If still if its not getting deducted, Uninstall the Belkin router Monitor software from the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS and then reinstall it using the CD.

8. Right click on the Belkin Belkin router Monitor icon on the lower right bottom corner in the task bar and click on CONNECTED USB DEVICES.

It will be deducted, if not the its obvious the router USB slot is defective. Replace the router in the stores if you have bought it within 30 days or contact BELKIN technical support 1 800 2235546(toll free) and get your router replaced.

With regards,

I have just purchased a Belkin N600 modem router. I have attached my Canon i850 printer to the USB port on the router but I cannot print. The green USB LED is not illuminated. Can you help, please? ...

I think you need to connect your printer to the router using an ethernet cable and not a USB cable. Ethernet cables are plug-and-play cables and doesn't require you to install a software. If you really need to connect your printer using a USB cable, you need to connect it to your PC so that the PC will run the installation wizard to install the USB cable. Of course the router cannot run installation wizard to the printer or the printer cannot run installation wizard to the router.

I seem to have a touchy USB connection, when I first got the Belkin and plugged my printer(s) into it, nothing happened, no connection light etc, after about 3 days I got it to light up, and it was fine...

The issue might be the port is broken, please try using another port to see if the issue persists. If it doesn't then the port it was previously connected to is broken and probably have to be plugged in at a certain elevated angle to work

Connecting WD Passport external HD with Belkin N+ router

I had this same issue. Found it to be a sequencing issue. Plug the USB into the router with the power off to the HDD. Power on the HDD and you should be able to get to it fine. Also make sure you have the latest firmware on the router.

Computer won't recognize the store-it drive external hard drive

You may have a problem with your drive or the usb ports so we need to check both. The green light usually just means the device is getting power.

The first thing to do is unplug the drive and reboot the computer. Make sur eit has finished booting up completely. Then plug it into a different usb port NOT the same one. If it detects and works it was just the operating system or motherboard not recognizing whats called a legacy usb device.

Next we want to try a different usb device in the computer to make sure the ports are working.

And we want to try the drive in another computer to make sure it is working.

At this point you will know if the problem is your drive or the port. If it is the drive you can get it runnning again sometimes by taking the actual drive out an dputting it into a new external drive enclosure kit.

Computer freeze on saving files to USB 2.0 External Hard Drive (and USB2 flash drive)

Suggest you look at the motherboard book to check if or how many USB connections are in fact USB 2 compatible. Most modern Motherboards only have 2 USB 2.0 Compatible connections, most are 3.0 or 4.0 compatible. Hope this helps, Malcolm Campbell.
