I'm currently using a belkin F5D7633 router (my pcs are using belkin F5D7050 usb adapters).
currently i have a problem where the broadband signal keeps dropping, either there is no phone light on the router or there is a red light (which i think means it cannot coonect to the isp), if i change the modem and use the one supplied by my isp (a speedtouch modem) I don't seem to have any problems.
The red light issue is usually resolved by removing the mains cable for 5 seconds but if there are no lights its just a matter of waiting (rebooting doesn't correct it).
belkin say i need the line testing but they cannot say why the speedtouch works all the time nor have they given me a reason for the red light.
My isp is talktalk - but I had a similar problem when i was with wanadoo.
Considering that the red light issue is solved by cutting the power i suspect the router may be faulty so - can anyone recommend a manufaturer? I want the router to be compatible with my belking adapters and be capable of useing 128 bit wep (16 key hexadecimal)
Just a recap then. You red LED is for the Incoming ADSL connection. Raising the router half an inch improves the reception.
If that is correct my Conclusion: The RJ11 (Telephone Cable) connection into your router is loose! Either the modem socket is slightly oversize or more likely the actual cable connector itself is a cheap one. Remove it from the modem, make sure that the cable itself is not restricted and gently pull the spring lever about 3 mm away from the main body of the connector itself. I mean gently - cheap one`s are made of rigid plastic or nylon and prone to snapping off!
Note that the connection pins are on the opposite side to this little lever and what we`re trying to do is ensure the spring lever pushes these pins firmly onto the corresponding pins in the modem socket.
As an alternative try a different modem cable altogether - it may solve the problem.
