Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)

1 Answer

My belkin light is on but the internet connection to my laptop keeps breaking up consistently

I have a main pc downstairs with a wireless rooter attatched to it, and then I have my laptop upstairs with a belkin wireless USB network adapter connected to it. The internet connection keeps on breaking up, and I keep having to go downstairs to make sure all the green lights on the wireless rooter are on, and then sometimes the internet comes back on, but this is only for about five minutes or so, until the connection breaks again. The light on the wireless adapter is on all the time, but my internet hardly ever works on my laptop, and on the downstairs pc it works a little bit better but is still not reliable.

    hi my belkin f5d7230-4 has all the lights on, the internet is directly into this via cables to 2 pcs, yet my internet will not work at all.

    this is a fairly new router. when the broadband is only via the modem the internet works fine.

    please help

    Take the laptop down and put it right next to the router. Try it for a while, if that solved the problem, the laptop is not getting a good enough signal from the router. If that is it, you need a better router and adapter on the laptop.

    That that doesn't help, it might be a bad Internet provider. Where I am, it is often both of those problems at once.

  • dmhandyman Jun 06, 2017

    Since it is so unreliable on the desktop p.c., it does sound like both problems. Still, try putting the laptop next to the router.

    May need to replace the modem, but I'd call the ISP (Internet Service Provider) first to see what diagnostics they can do. Be aware that some ISP's will NEVER admit it is their fault.

This sounds like it is probably the networking cables as your PC is directly connected so shouldnt have problems with net access. Get new cables as a first step :0)

I have F5D7230-4 router. Modem downstairs connected to DSL. Computer upstairs needs a wireless card to work This is a ''G'' router, but it only picks up signal upstairs with a ''B'' card which I stole...


The Belkin F5D7230-4 router should offer "Wireless G" connections,
unless you have used its built-in web-interface to only allow "Wireless B" connections.

So, if your "upstairs" computer, with a "Wireless B" adapter, connects, it will connect only at the slower "Wireless B" speed.

If you want "Wireless G" speed, you will need to purchase a "Wireless G" adapter.

Trying to connect a wired network wirelessly to a router


No. You'll need to run a "cross-over" Ethernet cable from one of the "LAN" ports on the "downstairs" router, connecting to the "WAN" port on another router that you will need to buy, and place "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the 4 "LAN" ports.

Or, run a long "straight-through" Ethernet cable from your DSL-modem (or cable-modem) that is "downstairs", and move your wireless router "upstairs", and connect the 4 devices to the router's "LAN" ports.
Your laptop "downstairs" should still be able to connect (wirelessly) to the wireless-router that is "upstairs".

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?


No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.

Connecting WUSB100 to Wireless G WRT54G


laptops have a wide range reciever built around the screen and tend to be far better than a normal usb dongle.

The fact that your pc is downstairs will be effected a lot because the signals from the router will be bouncing around in an area around the antenna and above, signals below will be effected by floors, doors and wall partitions.

Your best solution would be to place the router on a phone line downstairs and see if the signal is increased.

Belkin G+ mimo adapter (a timely problem)


that does seem a long time to connect... is it the wireless connection or getting an IP that is the delay... if it's IP then the network icon in the taskbar will have a moving part to the icon rather than being static... kinda yello ball running along a wire (if ya know what I mean)

try THIS util to see what your signal strength is and if there any other services sharing the same channel. Maybe you need to change the channel of the router?
