Belkin ADSL modem/router problems

  andywolve 12:18 27 Feb 2004

I have a Belkin ADSL modem with Built in wireless router part name F5D7630uk4A, I have set this up with help of Belkin, I have also a wirless card for my mums laptop. The problem is that when i use cable to connect to the router, (from my computer) websites do not load up properly, for example PC Advisors website will not load up, belkins website will not load up, but on my mums laptop all websites load up brilliantly. Is there a way that i can correct this problem???

- Another problem..
I would like to see who is on the network, but don't want the log-in screen to log in and type in passowrds and all that crap. As sooon as I turn on the computer and it goes through its motion, i just want it to go into Windows XP (home)or what ever OS the computer has loaded.

By not load up properly do you mean not at all ?

In Internet explorer do you have "Never Dial A connection" selected

Its under tools/internet options/connections

and on the same page under "Lan Settings"

is "Automatically detect settings" unchecked

The page doesn't load up the images and it seems to struggle with Pc Advisor's website (forms and other things)

"Never Dial a connection" is selected and "Automatically Detect settings" is unchecked.

Do other sites load ok

for instance Yahoo, seems to me that the Belkin is ok as its getting you on the internet, and the laptop as well, I would suspect something in your desktop setup, maybe Internet Explorer itself ???

I'm currently using the router now, the PC Advisor site, load up alright, but was very slow, other websites, seem to be secure websites and Forums in particular seem to be not working. On Hotmail, the pictures do not load up, on Amazon it is the same story, on Belkins website, it loads up alright and clicking on the Contact page, then it just won't load up, with the Microsoft error page saying page cannot be loaded,

I can't see any problems in the Internet Explorer setup as I have got it all on Low, or any thing like that

I've got the same and there is a firmware upgrade that should solve this problem click here=

Forgot to add download it to your desktop, then open the belkin network page, choose firmware update, browse select it from your desktop and click update.

thanks mikef,

the patch seems to have worked slightly as, websites load up better than they did have, but images don't load up.

Thanks Sealer, I was aware that they offered a FREE 24/7 helpline, i have telephoned them, quick response but it would be nice if the couild understand me, as well as me understanding them, will try again, soon, if I can't sort it out with great help I get from PC Advisors readers!!

Thanks for replying, I will keep watching the thread, and HELP come to mind!!!
