Question about Belkin Basic Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a belkin wireless router and the orange globe keeps flashing orange. I have unplug the modem and the router for 30 secs and plug it back in and it works but sometimes only for like 5 or 10 mins. This has been happening for the past couple of days. Could it be because of the high winds out side? Please help me. Thank you I have a N Wireless Belkin F5D8033-4v3

This is due to the high voltage passing the the equipment, put a Voltage Regulator in your power point or get an electrician to sort this out for u!

SOURCE: Hello, I currently use a Belkin F5D8631 as my Modem Router. I have a spare Belkin F5D7633. Can I use the 7633 as a repeater/bridge to extend my wireless range? If so, how?! Thank you

It will not extend your wireless range. If you connect your spare Belkin F5D7633 to your Belkin F5D8631, one of them would have to be set to "bridge mode" or a pass through modem so that there will be no conflicts as to which modem will receive the ip address from the network. If you set your modem/router to bridge mode, it would disable its wireless function because it will only be a pass-through device.

If you want some tips on how to improve your wireless range, check out this site http://www.microsoft.com/athome/moredone/wirelesstips.mspx. Hope this helps.

You must configure the wireless settings of the laptop manually. It should match the wireless settings of your router. If you have wireless encryption enabled, make sure to type the network key on the wireless settings of your laptop.

Just hook it all up, and push and hold the reset button in the back of the router for 10 sec..

Then unplug your internet box, [cable/DSL box] and plug back in,
The internet box will send a IP to your router automaticly.

[If it dont work unplug power from both boxes, then back in but plug the internet box in first..]

done..

if your useing wireless this will not be setup with a password to join, and will be open to neighbors,,

I just bought a Belkin Router Model # F5D8236-4. I have everything wired correctly, but the wireless light does not come on. I can't get the internet to come on to the computer I want to connect to? What...


Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network.
First, connect to Belkin's wireless network that you can scan.
After you connect, try to go online
It ll work...

Modem router light blinking (no wireless connection) F5D8631-4


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.
