My friend gave me a used Belkin F5D7230-4 2.4ghz - 802.11g Wireless Router without it's USB Adapter and Installation CD. I was excited that finally I could connect to the internet wirelessly with my laptop. I spent a whole day just trying to set up the router, to make it work (I had this 169.254.x.x IP problem, but figured it out). So now I have internet on all the computers, everything is fine, except my laptop can't find any wireless network. I've read many forums, and tried several things, probably my bigest problem is that I don't understand everything very clearly.
INTERNET SETTINGS: Connection Type PPPoE (I have a username and password) Subnet mask 255.0.0.0 Wan IP 184.108.40.206 Default gateway 220.127.116.11 DNS Address 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 (Automatic from ISP)
LAN SETTINGS:[/B] IP ADDRESS 192.168.2.1 SUBNET MASK 255.255.255.0 DHCP SERVER ENABLED*FEATURES: NAT Enabled Firewall Settings Enabled Security Disabled SSID BELKIN Wireless Channel 1 (I've tried a few of them from 1 to 11) Wireless Mode g only (I've tried "b only" and "b and g") Broadcast SSID On Protected Mode On 802.11e QoS Off
Use as Access Point Disabled
These are the settings for the router.
I've tried the "Setup a wireless network" wizzard (and instead the "Use USB flash drive" - wich would have been easier, I had to choose "Set up a network manually")
At the end I got the following settings:
Network Name (SSID): BELKIN Network Key (WEP/WPA Key): 5aace30f9e8749c09ec22ed621 Key Provided Automatically (802.1x): 0 Network Authentication Type: open Data Encryption Type: WEP Connection Type: ESS Key Index:
Under Wireless Network Connection Properities/BELKIN properties I made sure these settings are the same as above.
There is a little program EVEREST Home Edition, it shows my Network Adapters on my laptop Under [B]Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN Adapter*: Connection Speed 54Mbps MTU 1500 bytes WLAN Signal Strength -10 dBm (Excellent) DHCP 192.168.1.1
I've downloaded the newest Firmware Update for the BELKIN router. Also tried to stop Wireless Zero Configuration but that made it worse.
I'm sure you guys know all these stuff, which is kinda like Chinese to me, but please help because I'm running out of ideas what to do....
