Im connected with a BT Voyager 205 ADSL Modem to the internet. I also have a Belkin 802.11g Wireless G Router to connect another PC in the house.
Now the modem and the router are connected with an ethernet cable. The internet connection keeps failing. The 'modem' light flashes on the router and the 'ethernet' light flashes on the modem, any ideas what is going wrong please?
The Voyager 205 is a modem router if as you stated the Belkin is also a router, and you have both connected together, then you will have 2 devices with DHCP Servers fighting for control of the IP addressing on your network (that is unless you have turned of the DHCP server in the Belkin)
Ok, i hadnt tried turning off the DHCP Server in the Belkin router but i have now and it's not that. But, now i cant connect with the Belkin router so i can go into the settings and turn it back on! Ive had to disconnect the Belkin router just to get back online to do this!
How can i connect it and get into the settings to change it back?
I'm having exactly the same problem! The Router (Belkin F5D7230-4) works for a few minutes then shuts down. Turn off the power and then switch back on and the connection comes back. I'm using it with a ntl:home cable modem. The connection works fine when the modem is connected directly to the PC.
I recently went through the smae issue with my newly purchased Belkin G plus MIMO router. The solution in the end was to access the device manager for my network card and set the SPeed / Duplex from "AUTO" to 10mb half duplex. My connection ( Rogers portable internet 1.5mb down 256 up ) was as advertised when the modem was connected straight to the PC but once the belking router was introduce my speeds dropped to less then 1/10th or 100kbs down. Setting the speed/duplex put me back up.
Hope this info helps someone else.
