We has a wireless Belkin F5E8231-4_US_2.01.13. We have one wireless computer and three wired. We use a cable modem. Each computer has problems losing the signal while remotely connected. Two of them use gotomypc and two use a different program, but each temporary looses the connection. The cable company has replaced the modem and says their signal is fine. Problem has started within the last couple of months. Is there a router setting we should look at? Problems seem to occur since cable company upgraded their local service.
Had same prob. 3 wired an 1 wireless . wireless would not conn. an others lose connection . after cable upgrade it was in router upgrade changed settings in router i had to call maker of comps an get them to reset ip adds took almost 3 hours to get them all working again they will do a remote access help by useing your ip threw your internet company hope this helps

Use an Ethernet cable from the CLEAR modem into the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the Belkin.
Take a close look at the 8 coloured wires at each end of the Ethernet cable.
The 8 wires must be coloured in the _same_ order at both ends.
Be sure that you have a 'CAT-5' or 'CAT-5E' cable, not a 'CAT-3' cable, which is much slower, over long distances.
Use another Ethernet cable from one of the (three? four?) 'LAN' ports on the Belkin to the network-port on your computer. Again, check that you have a "straight-through" cable, not a "cross-over" cable.
Turn the CLEAR modem off.
Turn the Belkin off.
Turn your computer off.
Turn the CLEAR modem on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn the Belkin on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.
Turn your computer on, and let it boot.
You now should have Internet access.
Note that the router "dynamically" shares the Internet connection.
If there are 4 'LAN' ports, then each of the LAN ports gets as much speed as it needs;
you do not have a 25/25/25/25 split, unlike cutting-up an apple-pie to feed 4 people.
Run a "speed-test" on your computer, and you should be getting as much speed as you are paying for. Having the Belkin in the "middle" of your network should *NOT* slow-down the speed-test at all.
I would suggest taking a look at your modem LEDs. What happens exactly when you lose connection? A look at the LEDs should give you some thought as what might be causing this. You can also try resetting your Belkin to default factory settings by pressing the Reset button at the back for 30 seconds, and then putting back your Belkin settings.
Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!
From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.
Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
Hi, since your Internet source is the ISP modem, you have to connect the cable from it to the yellow connector of Belkin router, then you can connect the VoIP router and computer to any of the ports (connectors) labeled 1-4 , remember to restart clients (PC & VoIP router) to get the new IP from Belkin router.
Hi Andrew i had the same prob all i did was to connect by hard wire 1st. Connect your modem ethernet cable to your router , then connect your router to your computer again with ethernet cable, When i did this nothing happend at 1st so i unplugged the modem (not router) leave for about 20 sec's then plug in your modem within about 10 secs i was up and running. I hope this helps
Does your router have one LED lamp for each "wired" port?
If so, does unplugging the Ethernet-cable (the one that connects to your desktop PC) cause the lamp to go off?
Does reconnecting that cable cause the lamp to go on?
Also, on your desktop computer, there could be a lamp right beside where the Ethernet-cable connects into your computer.
Again, disconnect the cable, and reconnect the cable, to see if that lamp goes off/on.
Have you tried a different cable?
Do *NOT* connect your desktop computer to the 'WAN' port on the router -- connect it to any of the "LAN" ports.
