I was playing around with my wireless router settings and I noticed something strange.When I set my computer to use AES encryption, my link connection speed became greater than 54 Mbps. Unfortunately, running some internet speed tests showed a consistent download speed of less than 400 kbps, although my upload stayed around normal at 4000 kbps.When I switched to TKIP encryption, my link connection slowed down to 54 Mbps (which I'm assuming means it switched to G mode rather than N).However, my speed tests resumed their normal fast speed of downloading at 10,000 kbps or higher, and upload around the same 4000 kbps range.
i have a belkin n300 wireless router and a embarq 660 modem. i wanted to change the password, i don't like the default password. it's too easy to get hacked. anyway, i tried typing the ip address in the address bar of a browser, and it came up a login page, so i created a new login. and then it opens up a page call ZYXEL total internet access solution. it has a lot of setting and button about the network but i couldn't find a button that can change the wireless router's password.
This morning I lost wifi connectivity. I reset the router and powered off and on the modem along with the router but to no avail. The blue stripe no longer shows on the top corner of the machine.I am able to connect to the internet using the ethernet ports on the router. I also tried to get into programming using 192.168.2.1 but it is timing out.
I purchased a Belkin N-300 router, model F9K1002V4, about 6 months ago, and recently upgraded my cable internet service to a 20+ mbps level, in hopes of improving the speed of my wireless devices. The speed on all of my wireless devices (a new laptop, ipad, and iphone) is still below 1mbps, even when I'm in the same room with the router. The speed on my wired computer registers above 20mbps, so I don't think the problem lies with the cable internet. I have tried to download the firmware update on Belkin's site, but my computer says it doesn't have the right program to run it, and it can't find the program on the web. I sent an e-mail to Belkin customer service, but they just sent me an automated reply, referring me back to their website, with the firmware update that I can't access.
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 !
my netgear wireless router cannot see my n300 usb adapter. it shows as working in my device manager, but the netgear router says wireless not connected. when installing the adapter it said that windows has an icon to the left of the taskbar that i can click on and ask to join a network, which it didnt. it just showed network and an option to open network and sharing center, which i did. there were no wireless networks that showed available for me to log into with the adapter
I am trying to connect a Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB HDD to the USB port on my Belkin ShareMax N300 wireless router. The router does not recognize this HDD. I know that the HDD is functioning because it works when I connect it directly to my laptop USB. I also know the Belkin USB port is working because it recognizes a 4GB USB memory stick and a 320GB Toshiba USB HDD. Is there a fundamental compatability problem, or is there some configuration that must be performed (e.g., reformat from NTFS to FAT32, etc.)? I saw some message traffic on the Belkin support site that indicated some issues with earlier versions of Belkin routers using larger HDDs (e.g., 4 TB). My router has a serial number 121026G3101468, model number F7D7301 v1.
I have decided to buy belkin n600 router. my question is can i connect Belkin wireless range extender n300 to belkin n 600 for beater coverage. is this possible ? if possible how many extender i can connect to the router and also can i connect extender with wire and wireless.
Can't get internet.I can plug laptop directly into modem and works fine. When I plug modem into brand new wireless router (N300) the light glows amber. I've been through the set-up 10 times. Actually the same reason I replaced old router with this one.
I have two matching N300 Belkin routers. The cable modem feeds into modem1 and modem1 feeds into modem2. I get a good wireless connection on modem1. Modem2 shows up on a wireless scan and it accepts the password. It however will not connect.
I'm trying to resolve an issue I've been having with Google Chrome. I've found a possible fix but i need to confirm the MTU settings on my router and was unable to locate the setting using the web interface for the router.
I have a belkin n300 and it whilst the modem itself is showing a static blue light, its coming up as an explanation mark on the wifi symbol on my macbook. This has been happening since yesterday when I was fiddling around with the settings on the IP address (192.168.2.1) to get the printer to work wirelessly which it did once then the wifi network went down.
Cannot get wireless from any computers in home or room even the computer that I have installed the Belkin N300 on. When I click on the Belkin Icon on task bar get message "Wireless hardware not found" followed by comments about wireless radio not turned on and then how to recognize it with wireless radio icons. Now what do I do?
I have a Belkin Surf N300 wireless Modem-Router, but cannot get it to connect to my Android phone. I can connect it to my Nexus tablet, to my desk-top and my lap-top, so I know there is nothing wrong with the router itself. Every time I try to connect the phone, it locates the network, scans, authenticates, but then says "Disabled" and the message: "Secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK" with "locked network" symbol. What does this mean? This is on the label that came with the router: "Security Type WPA/WPA2" but I don't know what to do in order to remove the lock. The phone is a Vodafone Smart Chat and I bought it specifically to be able to connect to Wi-Fi networks.
I have a N300 f9k1002v1 router and would like to add guest access. Unfortuantely I can't find any info on how to do this. The user guide alludes to it but has no details. I also checked out this link: [URL]
since my router setp does not show "guest access" under "wireless" I skipped to #6 as stated. However when I get to #9 there is no "guest settings" dropdown for me to use.
I've just hooked up my previously used N300 router. The router is showing a solid green light, and the laptop recognizes that a solid Belkin wireless connection is out there. I cannot for the life of me remember the network key and/ or pass phrase I originally set. No, I did not tape this info to the underside of the router as suggested in Belkin instructions.
I just purchased a Belkin N300 and it's advertised as being able to video chat as well as have two computers connected to it. I can't even watch youtube videos with just one laptop connected because the ads take 5 minutes to load. Is this normal behavior for this router? Do I need to upgrade to be able to Skype?
N300 F9K1002v3 not loading some websites , other websites load just fine.Brand new just arrived yesterday afternoon.I have restarted the router.I have updated the firmware.I have reset the router by holding in the button on the back of the router. When I plug my computer directly into my modem everything works fine.
I need to reset the channel on my N300 router but in order to do so, I need to log in. The log in screen does not take my existing password. How do I get my current password or reset my password? It should be the simplest thing, but I have found this to be extremely difficult with Belkin.
