Techy Help - Belkin Router Wireless Problems

7y, 5m agoPosted 7 years, 5 months ago
Just wondering if anyone can ofer some advice.

I have just bought a Belkin F5D7633-4 wireless router.

It was set up from PC via ethernet cable and everything is OK - everything works and i can access internet/email etc.

Have tried to connect to the router wirelessly through another PC and laptops. Again everything appears to be OK - it took a while to connect but then got the 'connected to local and internet' prompt.
However i cannot access any web pages/email/msn/yahoo etc.

I have checked and rechecked the settings and evrything is OK.

Does anyone know why i might be having this problem and how to rectify it.

Thanks in advance.

if you connected the new router while everything is on, try do a power cycle...

No everything was powered down and then powered up in sequence, as per the instructions.

try to access the routers admin page from the new wifi pc.

Have you checked the settings through your pc...Type in 198.168.2.1 through your browser and see if anything is blocked...Good Luck

if you say everything is OK, have you tried a different browser? just to be sure it wasn't the computer

Yes i have tried Mozilla/Firefox. I have previously had no problems at all using the same kind of set up with a Linksys router.

Go to the command prompt (Start/Run 'cmd' or Start/Programs/Accessories/'Command Prompt') and try a few things:

> ipconfig
Checks your machine has a proper IP Address and a designated gateway (should be the same address as the router).

> ping
i.e
> ping 192.168.2.1
Checks to make sure you can actually communicate with your router.

> ping [url]www.google.com[/url]
This checks two things - DNS (name) resolution and connectivity out.

> ping 209.85.227.147
If *THIS* works and the ping above to [url]www.google.com[/url] fails, it means your network settings on the PC and laptop need to be changed to automatic DNS addressing, or set to that of your router.

Let me know how you get on.

Try this:
Start
Highlight "Connect to" and click "Show all connections"
Right click on "Wireless Network Connection" and choose "Properties"
On the "General Tab" click on "Internet Protocol" and click "properties"
Write down all the numbers you see and delete them all, then make sure "Obtian IP address automatically" is ticked.
Do all the OKs.
Hopefully you can get to the pages now.

I had exactly the same problem with my Belkin Router (same model) and this sorted it.

If the numbers are not there, then this isn't the problem.

Where there any numbers? If not, it must be some other issue. Are you using a third party firewall?

What results did you get from the steps I laid out?

IP addresses are differnet.
Ping works to router.
Ping works to Google.

But still no access to internet pages although laptop is showing 'Local and Internet connection'

Sorry i got it wrong.
Ip addresses are differnet.
Ping to router OK.
Ping to Google fail.
Ping to 229.85.227.17 OK.

Is LAN still enabled? Try disabling it. Remember to enable it if you go back to LAN.

I doubt it is this, but worth a go.

LAN enabled on Router?

How do you you disable it?

Yes, your IP Address and gateway MUST be different. What would happen if two houses had the same postal address?

So you can ping [url]www.google.com[/url], but not access the internet?

Try this (Again in command prompt) :

> netsh int ip reset reset.txt

than

> netsh winsock reset catalog

Try your internet again - I'm starting to think that you've possibly got a mis-configured AV/Firewall on your PC tho. I've had this before with Norton AV being over-protective.

Leave it - it has nothing to do with the problem. If you can ping internet addresses, the problem is at the PC.

Thanks for all of your help.

I have just changed the DNS address to 4.2.2.2 and 4.2.2.1 and i now have access to the internet pages.

Not sure if i will have to change this back to obtain DNS server address automatically when i go back to the Linksys router.

Where did you change the DNS settings? I'm now completely confused. :?:
