Belkin manufactures a wide range of network routers designed to help you create a local network or the Internet. These networks are an ideal way to stay online or share information between computers. Various hardware or software related issues might occasionally arise on the router that may cause your network to malfunction. Troubleshoot your Belkin router and network to help identify and solve all problems and keep your network running at optimal speed.
Troubleshooting Belkin Router:
- Make sure your Belkin router is connected to a power source if none of your headlights are illuminated. A router that is disconnected cannot establish or maintain a network. Connect the device to a reliable electrical outlet using the included AC power cord. The power port is usually located on the rear panel of the Belkin router.
- Verify that the Belkin network router is connected to a modem if it is a Belkin model that does not have its own internal modem. Use the included Ethernet cable by connecting one end of the cable to the port on the back of the router called the “Internet,” and the other end to the lineout port on the modem.
- Restart the computer if it can connect to the Belkin network but drops the connection periodically. Belkin suggests that the software settings on your computer may not be working properly. Restarting can solve this problem.
- Update the Belkin router firmware. The Belkin technicians regularly release updates to the software within the company’s routers, and these updates usually resolve common software-related crashes and bugs. Open your browser and type “http://192.168.2.1” in the address bar and then press “Enter” on your keyboard. The page that displays the settings for your network router will appear. Click “Firmware Update” in the left column and follow the instructions on the screen.
- Restart the Belkin network. Press the reset button on the Belkin router, usually located next to the power port of the router on its rear panel. Hold the reset button for 10 seconds or until the front lights of the router are blinking.
- Make sure your computer is properly configured to join a wired or wireless network. Exact specifications vary greatly depending on your computer and operating system. Typically, Mac users can click the wireless internet icon in the upper left corner of their screen and select “Open Network Preferences” to troubleshoot their network connections. On a Windows PC, double-click the network icon in the Windows system tray, located on the right side of the Start bar
