Belkin mimo g+ 54mbps wireless problems

By aidanspoopyhead ·
Hi there, Im havin an issue with my new belkin wireless router and was wondering if someone could please help.

I bough the router last week and when I had installed it i realized that there were viruses on one of the machines on the network.

I took that machine off the network and did a format/reinstall of windows etc.

The router was workin fine for a period but then it started to go a bit funny on me. The internet worked fine except for when I tried to download any material. It seems to loose its connection, the download just stops dead.
and it seems as if it happens at around the exact same time for every download.

I took out the router and wired the machine directly into the modem and no problem. also if i try to connect to something like steam the connection only lasts a few minutes and gives me an "WARNING: connection problems" "lost connection to server". This only happens when I connect the modem into the router and not when computter is connected directly into the modem!?

Is there some sort of random ip change or wep code rotator built in with the software for the router or what because its really giving me a headache?

Any information will be greatly appreciated!

Similar problems

I've had similar problems with routers of all makes doing the same thing. My Belkin had interference problems with wireless units too and I traced it to a neighbors new "N" type router interfering. I had to place some grounded foil on the wall near the router to block out these signals. This has worked well.

thanks

this ground foil is it basically tin foil? the only thing i cant understand is that its a g mode router and there shouldnt be an issue like that because i deliberately stayed clear of n type routers.

thanks for the reply!

Aluminum foil

by mjd420nova In reply to thanks

Just plain aluminum foil grounded to my main ground. Placed on the wall between the neighbor with the "N" type router and the antennas on the "G" type router. I used this on around 10 locations.

A few Possible Issues

A few questions first:
1. Are you using a Belkin Pre-N wireless client for the computers?
2. Have you tried this in just 802.11g mode?
3. Are there any other strong (signal strength) wireless networks in your immediate vicinity?
4. When you are having this problem have you looked at the ipconfig /all command or tried to ping the router? If so what were the results?

Using a Pre-N device is iffy at best right now as there are many compatibility issues. Also on a personal note, I have never had much success with Belkin Pre-N equipment. So with that in mind I might be suspect of the Belkin device.

none of the above

1. Are you using a Belkin Pre-N wireless client for the computers?

No because i know that there are issues with using that type of service and my card cannot support it.

2. Have you tried this in just 802.11g mode?

Its a g+ and b, both modes are on yes.

3. Are there any other strong (signal strength) wireless networks in your immediate vicinity?

Not a strong signal but yes there is one with a weak signal which is protected and ive never tried to connect to it.

4. When you are having this problem have you looked at the ipconfig /all command or tried to ping the router? If so what were the results?

yes i have, and i get a reply every time and i can ping sites and get replies everytime no packet loss at all????
ive looked at my log reports as well but dont really know what it means?

here are some of todays reports:


User Login From 192.168.2.2 => Sun Sep 2 20:42:30 2007

Almost to me seems like my isp is sending a new ip every few minutes? well to be exact its roughly every 4minutes according to the logs?

But another thing i find strange is even using java's sdm, which works the same as net vampire the downloads die but if i keep redownloading the file it eventually downloads??? after about 10-20 attempts?

but im not sure if this was the case yesterday.

Thanks for the reply!

It is a Pre-N router

by Michael Kassner Contributor In reply to none of the above

You are using 802.11g specifications in some regards, but that device is still a proprietary Pre-N device that uses Belkin developed MIMO (i.e., Pre-N) application software.

Also I would suggest disabling that aspect if possible, since you do not have the matching client adapter.

Could you explain in depth as to how the network is setup? Also I am not sure I understand where you are looking at those event logs to get a public address?
