I just purchased a Belkin prepmium CAT5e networking cable and plugged it into an internet wall jack and hooked it up to my ps3 and the connection won't work. Does it have to be hooked up to a router? Is a CAT5e cable the same as ethernet? or will I need to buy a different cable?
Just about to run about 30 metres of Ethernet cable underground from one building to another. I know there's quite a few forums like this which suggest to go for cat5 mostly for the price, not sure when these were advised but cat6 doesn't seem to be too much more now...
So just wondering if it will be worth going for cat6 for a future reference if you will, ideally if products ever advance to support it. Just that I don't fancy digging up the cable in a year or so.
Of course I'd rather go for cat5e but wouldn't mind adding a bit to the budget if it's worth it?
Also does anyone know if it's any more difficult to fit the connecters to cat6e? Are they just the same as rj45?
I am trying to connect CAT5e riser cable to a GE #76536 network and phone wall plate.The problem I am having is the CAT5e cable has 4 twisted pairs of wires as follows: blue/white, green/white, orange/white and brown/white. The wall plate connection has 8 distinct colors; blue, white, green, orange, yellow, black, red and brown. (or at least that's what they look like to me)None of the white wires from the CAT5e cable have any striping. They are all solid white. I've found color charts for matching striped wires, but I am at a loss to figure out how to connect these white wires to the proper terminals
Currently have wireless router to internet with pc's all connected in home network. Is it possible to put a cat5e/6 cable between two client PC's for a temporary boost in speed for for accessing shared files between these two machines.(i.e. 1Gbit rather than 56Mbit.)Both PC's would still want individual connections to the router and internet, but how do you make sure accessing shared files goe's through the faster ethernet cable rather than the router?
Im having a issue with that any of my computers without a wireless connection have been incapable of getting out on the internet with the new router that i got myself, i know the cables works etc, since they work perfectly fine with the old modem alone, but wont work at all with this unless on a computer with wireless connection
I recently purchased a WAG320N, primarily for the faster networking speeds and the ability to attach a USB hard drive to my network.The only problem is that I have little idea how I get this network storage thing to work. Cisco haven't really supplied any documentation on how to work this.So far I've plugged in a hard drive and formatted it through the router's web interface, with no trouble at all.But, after doing this I have no idea how to access my hard drive on the network.I would assume that it would appear automatically on my network for me to access freely.
I'm trying to network a small office and have the following devices:
SMCD3G Cable Modem Belkin Play N600 Router Digi Mil-H1130 8 Port Ethernet SOHO Hub Hubbel Cat5 Patch Panel (goes up to 12)
We're replacing our DSL line with a Cable line. Our DSL was a one piece wireless router/modem. When it was installed, it was inside our office, next to the server, and plugged into Wall Jack 1 for all the other computers to connect to. Our server plugged into this modem/router. We didn't have the Belkin Router at the time. The Patch Panel wires went into the Hub behind our office and everything was fine.
The cable modem is now next to the Hub and Patch Panel. I bought the router since we didn't have the wireless feature that the DSL had and everyone I spoke to said I need a router to set up the office. I ran one of the LAN lines from the modem into the Router where it says Modem (WAN). From the Router, I ran the line 1 (LAN) into the Hub. (Does the number matter if nothing is plugged into it in our office?) No computer is able to connect to the internet except my laptop which connects wireless. It works fine.
Another problem. We have a server computer that's Unix based. In order for anyone to connect to the server to access the office software used, the IP address of the router must be 126.96.36.199 or the computer your using won't connect via Multiview 2000 Terminal Emulator. I can't connect to the server because the IP address of the router is still 192.168.2.1. I don't know where I have to go in the router settings to change it. I've tried a few spots and it tells me the IP address is invalid. The settings I had with the DSL modem/router were:
Modem IP address - 188.8.131.52 Subnet Mask - 255.255.255.0 DHCP Start Address - 184.108.40.206 DHCP End Address - 220.127.116.11
It's not like I need to run wires. Everything is set. If something is plugged into a wrong spot, I can switch it.
Additional info: There are 4 computers in the office and 8 numbered wall jacks. Server computer - Wall jack 8 (IP address of this machine - 18.104.22.168) XP Machine 1 - Wall jack 4 (can't connect to server! No internet.) XP Machine 2 - Wall jack 1 (Is able to connect to the server! No internet.) Win CE Machine - Wall jack 9 -
I assume. I have a wire that goes through the wall on this machine and it isn't marked. (Rarely used so not sure about server connection)
Wireless Windows7 laptop - connects to the internet fine since it bypasses all these wires. Can't connect to server.
Under the DHCP client list, only 2 computers are listed. The one that has internet is my computer. The other computer listed is wall jack 4 and that has internet now.
my computer - 22.214.171.124 wall jack 4 - 126.96.36.199
The router IP is 192.168.2.1 and the Cable Modem is 10.1.10.11. If I type either number into my web browser it will take me to the router setup page. I don't know where/how to check if it's only one device acting as DHCP. What I want to do is be able to get online with all the computers as well as have access to the software on the server through the office wall jacks. In order to do that I need the router IP address to be 188.8.131.52 and then I'd be able to connect to it.
Right now, one computer is able to connect to the server via hard wire but can't connect to the internet.Another computer is able to connect to the internet via hard wire but can't connect to the server.My laptop can connect wireless to the internet but not the server. In a perferct world, all the computers should be able to connect to both the internet and the server. Right now, it's one or the other with both hard wired machines and I don't know why. Is there a wire not in the hub right? Is a patch panel wire plugged into the wrong port of the hub? I don't know what's supposed to go where. tell me "wire X from the modem goes to Port Z of the router, and Wire Y from the the router goes to number V on the Hub, and that wire goes to number T on the patch panel for the Port number R in the office to work..." I'll try it.
Then I think all I need to do is change the router's IP address to 184.108.40.206 and everyone should be able to connect to the server through the Multiview 2000 Terminal Emulator.When I tried to change the IP address on the router it's telling me it's not valid. Under LAN settings it says 192.168.2.1 - when I try to change it to 220.127.116.11 it tells me LAN IP address is invalid. I clicked on More Info below that in the router page and a pop up gives me info. It says:
The "IP address" is the Internal IP address of the Router. To access the advanced setupinterface, type this IP address into the address bar of your browser. This address can be changed if needed. To Change the IP address, type in the new IP address and click "ApplyChanges". The IP address you choose should be a non-routable IP. Examples of a non-routable IP are:
192.168.y.x (where y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)
10.y.y.x (where y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)
172.z.y.x (where z is anything from 16 to 31, and y is anything between 0 and 255, and x is anything between 1 and 254.)
problem with a Belkin Wifi Router: it's a G+ wireless router
Model:F5d9231-4 Version 2 OS- XP Service pack 2
i've tried resetting to factory settings and power cycling my modem and router but nothing.. the issue is that my Wifi icon on the router does NOT show and i went in to the setttings for it and tried resetting everything and nothing works. it works fine hardwired but my Wireless does NOT work..
I have this Belkin wireless g router, which I had for a year. I was using the wired connection since then until I, at last, was able to use it's wireless connection but it only lasted around a week. After that, the modem light on the router kept on blinking and the internet light wouldn't turn on. I also couldn't connect to the router anymore(wired and wireless), neither could I configure it. I reset it but it still didn't work.
I bought a Canon Pixma mg3220 all in one printer/scanner today. I specifically picked it for the Airprint feature for my IPhone, which I can't get to work. Is it a problem with my F5D7234-4 v5 router? I have updated the firmware and it still won't print. The Iphone sees the printer, but that's as far as I get.
I have several laptops that work fine with my wireless router. I have a new laptop with Windows7 and it will not stay connected for more than a couple of minutes at a time. Are there any issues with this router and Windows7?
I just switched from an AT&T T1 ISP to Comcast cable, which supplies a motorola modem, pushing 5MBPS downstream. This modem is not recognized by the router, a Belkin wireless G model, F5D7234-4 V5. After numerous attempts to restart both the modem and the router, the modem light does not turn on, nor is a wireless connection recognized by my computer, a new Macbook Pro. The router worked fine with the AT&T connection.
I am having a bit of trouble. I have a Belkin router (this is irrelevant) across the house, which is extended by the Belkin wireless bridge/repeater in my bedroom. The device in my room boosts my WiFi signal for my MacBook and iPhone, and the LAN (ethernet) port on the back allows my Debian server to connect to the network and internet. I have a Linksys switch that I wish to use, for I have another computer that requires an ethernet connection. Here is what happened:Debian 1 is connected via ethernet, no problem.I shut it down, unplug cable. Run cable from bridge to switch's uplink.Plug another ethernet cable into port one on switch, run it to Debian 1.
I have just bought a n300 everything works well except i cant get my sky on demand wireless bridge to work , sky have said all ok, as have my broadband supplier. im told i need to maybe change my wireless settings in router !
I'm trying to get 'Access Control' working so I can limit Wi-Fi time on my kids iPod touches, but the settings aren't clear and the help file is not clear whatsoever.I've been testing it with my iPhone, I have the MAC added, but none of the options available will even stop my iPhone accessing the internet over my Wi-Fi.
I have just purchased the latest 2012 27" iMac and I would like to know if the Belkin AV360 (F2CD007) works with this iMac as it has thunderbolt ports and not the previous mini display ports that older iMacs have? I have searched online and asked Apple directly but they referred me to Belkin. I have emailed Belkin and the reply was not useful.
I have a Belkin AC1200 Router. It seems working properly re Internet/Wireless connections. When I connect a printer (Canon Pixma MP500) through the USB port the (USB) light doesn't turn on, nor the printer is appearing on the "available devices" (Belkin USB Print and Storage Center).
I have a ethiernet cable that I can connect to my pc and get internet, when I connect that same cable to the wirless router, I can't get internet, what am I doing wrong.The PC I am using connect to other wireless routers on the same network, but this ethiernet cable only work on pc when put in direct
