Belkin Hi Speed Wifi G Router - Always Needs Manual Dns Change
Oct 12, 2011
I've been having this problem with my Belkin router since day 1 when i got it.( not new, got from buddy's place) It's Belkin HI Speed Wifi G router, and what's really frustrating is, everytime i connect to it, I need to manually change the DNS address and switch between 18.104.22.168 & 22.214.171.124 in order to get internet access! Sometimes it even cuts off the internet during a session, without me even disconnecting from the wifi network, where I would again need to switch back and forth to the 2 or 4 ending!
Manual and firmware not available for my f7d2401nt. The US support page do not find the model, the italian support page find the model but link to the US page ! Someone has at least the manual (englis, french or italian language) ?
I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router. Uploads are 2Mbps either way. I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy. The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router? If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem. That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case. I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service. There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.
I am using Linksys wirelless G router, will my wired speed on desktop increase when I change to a wirelless N router for laptop and ethernet for wired desk top? I don't need anymore wireless speed but am wondering if I upgrade will my wired desktop pick up more speed.
Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months. The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.
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.
I have a Belkin N300 router. When a computer is hard-wired to the router, I get about 26Mbps, but all of the wireless devices in my house are limited to about 56kbps. I tried logging into the router to see if there was something "choking" the connection speed, but nothing really jumped out at me. Is there a setting of some kind that could be causing this?
I do have a signal repeater since my house is so big, but there is nothing within those controls that would seem to have that kind of effect either.
I just installed a Belkin N150 wireless router to use with our iPhones which it is working great. But I also have my desktop pc attached to the router as a wired connection and the down load speed on the desktop pc has decreased dramatically. for example it took 10 minutes to download a 30 sec video.Before I installed the Belkin router I had no downloading issues. This is on a dial up modem.
My Belkin Wifi router which was working fine earlier has stopped working now. It shows a red/orange light and nothing else ( it normally shows a green light ). The light doesn't blink or flash. As a consequence, my wifi devices aren't connecting to the internet, however i can connect via my pc normally through my modem. I have a iball Baton modem and the model number of my wifi router is F7D1301 V1.
I have and and android tablet I just bought and I can't connect to the internet with my Belkin N300 Router all my computers and smartphone work very good to this router and the phone works with wifi here also. I can't get this tablet to connect to the server I have put in all the ssid and the name of the server. When I try to connect it says connecting, then autherizing and then it does a loop and does not ever change,keeps on doing it. In the little shell that is to change color when connected there is a very small lock showing and I am not sure just what todo about this.
The other day my wifi was working the all of a sudden today my wifi stopped and said it's disconnected. On the router the only non-green light says "LINK"and it keeps flashing orange. How do i fix this because i cannot tweet pics from my phone without this working...
I recently switched from Linksys WRT54G router to MediaLink router. My wired connection speed stayed the same but my wireless speed degraded significantly - roughly from 5-8mbps to 200-300kbps.I measured my wireless speed both on win7 laptop and iPad. My Roku box is also struggling. All devices were in the proximity of the router.I tried changing encryption (WEP/WPA2/no encryption), mode (from b/g/n to b/g to just g), and different channels. Nothing worked, the speed is still very slow.
I recently purchased a Belkin Dual Band Router and connected to the internet at our side-house we have connected to the house. I'm getting a poor to fair signal out here. Just to mention, there is a lot of traffic passing at all times of the day and night. Busy highway. Is there a way I can boost my wifi signal without buying an actual wifi booster?
Connected to time warner we have a belkin 2.4ghz 802.11g g-router. The internet on the main desktop is on and used constantly all day, with 2 laptops and ipad used intermittently. Constantly thorughout the day the internet freezes up and has to be unplugged and restarted though there is no pattern to the freeze, perhaps only be the main desktop may be in use alone, perhaps all the above may be in use. Should I upgrade service from time warner or upgrade my older router.
I have a Cisco e2500 dual band router.I have a cable modem pulling down 55mps.When I put it through my router I get 22mps wireless and 55mps wired. I want my wireless speed as fast as it can go!I have changed channels, I have gone with just wireless N I have done just Mixed. I contacted customer support and they won't talk to me since I am out of warranty (I just not got internet this fast).One small caveat - when I take the channel selection off auto and change to a preffered channel my one laptop drops connection a lot. We have two laptops and both get the same speed. (No I am not running speed tests with a bunch of other things running etc)
So I went out and bought a brand new EA4500, because I thought my old router was bad due to horrific wifi Speeds on my Wireless devices like my laptop and Samsung Galaxy S3. Well now I have the same issue with this new router.My speed from comcast straight from the modem is 25mbps down and 5mbps up, on the routers through a wired connection I get the same thing. As soon as a switch over to Wireless my connection goes from 25mpbs/5mpbs to less then 2mbps down. I've reduced the MTU, and I've tried turning off QoS. Nothing seems to work
I recently bought an E4200 and noticed that the wireless speed keeps dropping as it stays connected.As soon as I power it on, my iPhone and notebook connect at 54Mb, but as they remain connected, the speed keeps dropping to 48, 36 and one morning, my phone was oscillating between 5 and 11. The iPhone was almost at the same spot, and the signal was around 85~95%. On my 3 year old DIR-300, the speed don't change at all, and it's in a place where I can see around 15 connections. On the E4200 I can only see 2 other networks.I've already tried switching channels, fixed and auto channel, updating firmware and a few other common configurations. At first, I thought it was my repeater, but I turned it off and it didn't work. Turn my cordless phone off didn't change it also.
Router: WRT54GL v1.1 Firmware: Tomato 1.28.1816 OS: Windows 7 Professional Wireless adapter: Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
I upgraded my Internet speed with my ISP to 60Mbit/s and I get following download results at speedtest.net:Is there a way to speed up my wireless connection with this router? On the sticker it says 54Mbps, so I would guess it should be possible.
how to set up a Belkin F5D7230-4 6000 router as a wifi access point. My home set up is the following: Dell Desktop connected by Lan to a Telefonica/Movistar router (I live in Spain), Dell portable .. connected by wifi at the other end of the house ..saying it's portable is a bit of a joke .. it's old and moving it is not an option ! Problem is I don't get much wifi signal on the portable to be able to do anything at all online so after googling on how to increase wifi signal .. worked out that I could set up an access point.. and owning a belkin router have been trying to set it up although I think there is something
I've connected the belkin by cable to the portable and disabled the DCHP and clicked on set up as an access point, set up wifi security and password, but when i am trying to reset the IP address I end up having to reset the router and start all over again.
I've got a Belkin F5D8236-4 wireless router. I've had no trouble connecting three laptops to it, but I've completely failed with my HTC smartphone and a friend has failed with a iPhone, I've also failed with an iPod. I've just got a Nexus 7, for my birthday, and that won't connect either! All devices find the network, they just don't connect!
I'm having issue with wireless connection on Belkin router F5D7633-4.Every 1-2 days my router disconnect and reconnect for no apparent reasons. When this happens, it affects it's wifi. All the devices in my house couldn't connect via wireless to this router. The only way to get these devices connected is to manually reboot the router.Do you know how to allow the router to allow many devices connected at same time?
Belkin Router N300 Model:F9K1002V2 apparently forces me to have specific LAN and WAN IPs that I have been unable to change.My ISP has been changing my IP and advising me that everything works without issue. It's true that my IP does change, but only if I am directly connected to my modem - I have a completely different IP. If my router is connected to the modem and I am connected either by Ethernet/wifi from the router, my WAN IP is displayed as my IP & the completely different IP is nowhere to be found.
The issue is that this WAN IP seems to have been banned on a game that I played on a daily basis. Game support has not been responding to my requests & I know my account on that game still exists because I am able to play it when I'm directly connected to my modem. Connecting with my modem is not an option, as there are others in my home that also need to use wifi.So, if it's not already obvious, I'm looking for a way to change my WAN IP ... without having to toss out the product and buy a new router - which I am seriously beginning to consider it.
I just picked up a EA6500 wireless router today and I am a bit disappointed. I paid $199 for this router because I was hoping to take advantage of of fast N speeds and the advanced features it offers.When I first logged in to set up the router, I saw an amber exclamation point with a note that read "Updating Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Service". When I put my password in I was met with a "Unexpected Error" message.Also, the firmware updater doesn't work. Now on to the more bothersome issue. Wireless speed is poor. I replaced a WRT160NL router with this one. On my old router using WPA2-Personal (AES) I would see speeds of ~300 Mbps. On my EA6500, I see 120 Mbps. I have checked and double checked all wireless and security settings and don't see anything that looks wrong.
I own a ea4500 wireless router, I have tested the speed at speedtest.net and wirelessly I get around 9 mbps. My speed is 23 mbps when I hard wired the pc. I have check the speed on a tablet ( android ), pc and a mac to about 5 feet away from the router with no walls or anything between the two devices.I have checked all the settings but I don't see anything wrong, I have changed to N mode only to make sure I use top speed.All my devices are able to use N.
I've got a 2 month old e3000 with the latest firmware. (1.04 i believe) I have run speedtests from wired and wireless machines on my network. All of the wired connections show a speed of around 15Mps (which is consistent with my providers guaranteed speed) but when I test any of the wireless connections I get somewhere between 3 and 7 Mps. I get the same degradation in speed when I stand directly next to the e3000.
Other then SSID and Passphrases I have everything set to the default settings. I have rebooted multiple times with no change. The e3000 is mounted on a 2x4 with several feet of clearance all around and is also located in the coolest part of the house. I am using Speedtest.Net for all the tests.
