Belkin 85c wireless router, used as an access point. Guest setup?

Q: Belkin 85c wireless router, used as an access point. Guest setup?

Our internet goes from:

Comcast modem to a
Dlink DIR-655
To computers or through a switchbox to other parts of the house
In the basement, is another switch box, and off that switchbox is,
Belkin 85c Wireless router, that we use as an access point
Works well but it says it has the ability to have a guest login, that will allow visitors to get to the internet, but are blocked from our LAN.

I've spent hours trying to set the guest login up, the access point can be seen by a computer/etc, but when they connect, they cannot get to the internet.

the windows 7 computers try to set up an unidentified public network.

I'm sure there is something very simple I am missing, but I've got close to 20 hours invested in it, and need to protect my network.

the Windows 7 notebook said that it could not connect with a "homegroup".

He told me that if I can figure a way to make the signal stronger that I can connect to the wireless to do my school work.

In a few days time I will be changing my ISP in the UK from Sky to BT.

BT are providing me with their newest wireless router free of charge as part of the deal and I'll be using that to set up my wireless network, which will consist of an HP Pavilion desktop, a Toshiba laptop, a Sony Vaio laptop, an HP wireless printer and a Samsung HDTV.

This means my Sky wireless router is surplus to requirements, so I was wondering if I could convert it to a wireless access point to improve the range of my BT wireless network.

If so, how do I go about it?

I've read a couple of supposedly easy-to-understand articles on Google and have to say they left me more confused than ever.

Is there a straightforward way of doing this?

I just purchased a wireless router (Linksys) to set up as a wireless access point connected via an ethernet cable to another Linksys wireless router that is connected to my DSL modem. I know I need to connect LAN port to LAN port, but do I need a "straight through" or a "switched/crossover" cable? As I have done some reading, some directions say straight, others say switched, some don't say at all. I just want to be sure I don't have a cabling issue. Thanks in advance for any information.

A:Solved: Connecting Wireless access point and wireless router

Well, a crossover cable will certainly work. If either end of the routers have auto-MDX ports, a straight patch cable will work as well.

Would it be possible to use an old router (Dlink Di624) as an access point on a wireless network, if I as to buy another router.

If a new router is connected to the modem and configured as the gateway, would the dlink be able to connect to it and keep transferring the signal, or is that out of the question?

A:Using old wireless router as access point.

You'd have to plug the (old) Dlink Di624 to the (new) router/gateway by wire; you could not use it to communicate with the (new) router/gateway wirelessly. But connected by wire to the (new) router/gateway it would still be able to operate wirelessly to all the wireless-connected PCs on your LAN.

If you can disable the routing functionality on the netgear router to make it a plain old switch (not sure that this can be done) and then can connect the netgear 'switch' to the d-link router via a cable, it might work for you. But, I am highly doubtful...

A:Connecting wireless router to wireless access point

Sounds like you want a Wireless Bridge (or AP Client). If you get a decent signal in the desired location and the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it should work fine. I use one (now discontinued, so I won't recommend it) myself for a camera whose integrated wireless no longer works.

I'm hoping this will also increase the wireless signal in the atticClick to expand...

That requires Repeater (or Range Extender) mode. If the WAP includes Wireless Bridge mode it will (I'm pretty sure) also include this mode. I understand that some units can do both jobs (wireless bridge and repeater) at the same time.

I didn't look at the specs or manuals for the units you mentioned; just indicating what you should be looking for.

A:Wireless Access Point Connected to Wireless Router??

You should be able to connect. If you configure the access point with no security, does it connect then? That's the way to narrow this down.

Remember, you need to use the hex keys for WEP, not the passcode, since that's not always 100% reliable.

I need to replace my wireless access point with something a little faster. A friend of mine had a spare wireless router that he gave me for free. I don't really need another router as I have a custom gateway in place.

I was wondering if I set the router up and just plugged the rest of my network into one of the LAN ports if I could use it as a wireless access point? It should pass the wireless traffic across the LAN ports I think. Since I would have nothing plugged into the WAN side none of the firewall/routing/NAT functionality would available but that is basically what I want.

Am I missing some obvious reason why this would not work?

A question came up before about using a router as a wireless access point, specifically the Belkin F5D7230-4. I attempted to use this router as a WAP, and was unsuccessful. It seems to configure fine, but I couldn't get a connection. OTOH, I dug out my ZyXEL P-330W and it happily configured as a WAP and allowed connections to my Actiontec router.

A nice bonus was that it appeared to make very fast connections! I did a speed test from using that WAP and on a laptop with a similar speed processor using a Microsoft 802.11g wireless card. The laptop managed 6mbit download speed, and the ZyXEL was able to get the full bandwidth of my FiOS connection, 15mbit as a WAP. I'm quite impressed, I had no idea it would work that well!

Make sure you have updated the firmware, before installing the update do a factory refresh then install the latest firmware.

If that doesn't solve the issue, replace the device if you just purchased it?

hi guys, my setup before was cable modem box outputs to hub. port 1 outputs to my computer. port 2 outputs to my wireless access point so i could roam my house. but to do that i have to pay brighthouse roadrunner for 2 ip addresses because i do an online sex webcam for partime work...please stop i know that using just a wireless router doesnt work because the website host cant see my webcam feed upload. i thought i read somewhere that i can setup my wireless router to be my hub and wireless access point. am i making apples taste like apples here? thanks...

A:i am buying a wireless router. can i also set it up to be an access point for webcast

Using just the router (and one IP address) should work just fine. You may have to configure some port forwarding and triggers - your website host should be able to help you with the details.

Some routers are clever enough to be able to use several external IP addresses too. Again, you ought to consult someone for the details and help on how to make it go.

Hey all, I'm running Win XP Pro on two systems, I have an old Dell TruMobile 2300 router that I'd like to turn into an access point for my upstairs computer. I have removed all encryption on my Netgear wireless router, as well as mac address filtering. I gave the Dell router a static IP, and set it to act as an AP. They are in the same subnet, and their is no IP conflict, however I can't get the upstairs computer with the Dell router to connect to the internet, or even ping my Netgear router with is also the DHCP for the network. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

What speeds do you get when connected directly to the DSL modem/router?

What speeds do you get with the same computer connected to the Linksys via ethernet?

Use something like to test.

If they are not about the same a cable is bad, a connection is bad (loose, oxidized) or the ethernet switch part of the Linksys is failing. Of course, try different ports on the Linksys.

Hi,i have a wired router at home.I bought a Tp link Tl-wa701nd wireless N accesspoint device,How can i set it up as an accessppoint.

Thank you

A:Configuring an wireless access point with a wired router.

I guess first of all you take the manual/User Guide out the box and read it, if you don't have one you can get the User Guide off the TP-Link website here. It will tell you exactly what you need to do to set it up.

My guess is that it will probably create its own wireless hotspot to begin with which you can connect to (settings usually on the label on the underside of the unit) and the manual will tell you the IP address you need to type in to configure it. TP-Link also provide a simulator for that model so you can mess around with all the settings first before you do it for real on your own unit.

I just wanted to ask if it was possible to use a wireless gateway (modem and router combined) as a wireless access point. I know that I can disable DCHP on the gateway and plug in a crossover cable from my existing wireless router to the gateway and get connection like that, but I don't want to use any cables at all. Basically, I want to use it as a wireless range expanded. Since it is confusing I have drawn a picture below (please excuse the lack of artistic ability).

1) Is the existing Wireless router (Linksys WRT54G)
2) Is the gateway I want to use as the access point (D-Link DSL-G604T)

So, again, basically I want '1' to talk to '2' wirelessly, so that a laptop far from '1' will get a stronger connection.

Thanks for any help

A:Wireless Router as a wireless access point?

While some routers include a "bridge" or "WAP" mode, it appears that the D-Link DSL-G604T does not. That being said, you can't do what you are asking about.

You could run a cable between the two routers and put them in different locations to expand your signal coverage, that's what I do.

Connecting two SOHO broadband routers together.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

I live in an association that provides WiFi (802.11b/g/n). It works fine upstairs, but my PS3 is in the basement, and doesn't get a good enough connection to stream netflix.

So I see two options, and I'm wondering which is better. It seems both would cost under $80.

Option 1:
Get a Wireless Range Extender that supports 802.11b/g/n, and put in upstairs.

Option 2:
Get a Wireless Access point and plug it into a wireless router (which I already have one lying around).

Which option is the best, and would give the best connection speed to my PS3 in the basement?

I have a printer that has a built in network card, and you can configure the IP address from the setup screen on the printer. (Xerox C2424)

I'm trying to link the printer up to the router, wirelessly. I have been told that you can use a USB Print Server, but that would not be necessary considering that I have a built-in network card already in the printer. I just purchased a DWL-G700AP D-Link Access Point to hook up to the printer, but I am unsure of how I should configure it.

When i pressed enter, it just popped up again, asking for username and password, as if i had got it wrong. D-link told me to reset the router, which i did, and now when i type the url, it comes up as a google search for that number. All the support line told me to do was to 'contact microsoft' - helpful eh? Please can anyone help, because i would really appreciate it. Tar,

However, we recently purchased a Netgear access point that we want to configure for a guest network. Is there a way we can make an unencrypted wireless signal but at the same time keep the information on the rest of our computers safe? In other words, is there a way to block access to everything on our network except for the internet just on that one access point?

My sympathies on the dullard in your midst.
Why don't you reset the router to factory state? You can either do this in the router settings, or by inserting a paperclip into the little hole on the back of the router for about 10 seconds or so. Then reset up your network the way you had it.

Hi all,
I just connected with WiMax, problem is I have the wimax wireless router in the house(all good).

But my office is in the garage! I was hoping to run an ethernet cable from WiMax Zylex router to my Belkin Wireless Router.

Is this the way to go about, sharing my internet connection? Also can anyone
give me any pointers on how to go about doing this.


A:Connect WiMax wireless (Zylex) with my Belkin N wireless router

I am no expert but will try to help. If I have understood you correctly, you only require the one router.
If the router in the house is a wireless router and your computer in your office is equipped for Wi-fi you could connect wirelessly. You will need the access code for the router when you try to connect. I think it will be a WEP or a WPA PSK code.
Otherwise run a ethernet cable from your house router to your office and connect it direct to your office computer (not too a second router) This is probably the safest method anyway if you do not need wireless.
You will then need to set up a network by going to "Control Panel" and clicking on "Network Setup Wizard" and following the instructions.
Hope that is of some help to you.

You have to enable Internet and file sharing in XP. Are these XP computers updated to Service Pack 3? Are the Vista computers updated to Service Pack 1?

Hello there,

I've installed a Belkin N1 Wireless Router for a client, and it seems to go down every night just in time for the morning. By go down, I mean that although clients are still connected to the SSID, no networking functionality (network drives, connection to the Internet) is available.

This is resolved by hard rebooting the router. Do you think there could be issues caused by cordless phones etc... that cause the connection to go down, without fail every night?

I've tried changing the Wireless options so that "Protected mode" (a setting that prevents interference from other wireless devices) is on, and I moved the connectivity to a different channel number.

Is there anything else that I could try?

I tried to set up my password on my belikin wireless G router from the screen and once i did set it the router rebooted and hasn't came back on since. I have reset the thing every way I can think of and the wireless and the screen will not come back online the power button just keeps flashing but I can still access the internet thru the hard wired connections any help will be greatly apprieciated

A:Belkin Wireless Router

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, you should be able to access it using the default IP address and blank password.

I recently bought a belkin wireless g router, model F5D7230-4. How clever was I buying it on ebay for half the retail price! Step one was easy enough and I loaded the driver. Step two said I was to connect my existing modem to the router. My modem has a USB connector and the router has an ethernet port. How the hell do I connect USB to ethernet?

You can reset the router to factory defaults and configure it using the web based setup, you don't need any disk. You can download the manual from Belkin's support site.

want to connect my 2 laptops to the internet using an old belkin router that i found from a friend...

when i connect them only the xp got the internet connection no luck with my macbook pro i can see the routers name on the macbook but still no connection when i click the routers name it ask me the WEP password which i dont have idea what is it......BTW want the macbook pro to be wireless.

the question is it possible to connect the two laptops to the internet and do you have any suggestions or links on how to do set up this things, really no idea on what i'm doing please help.


A:Wireless set up with Belkin router?

I'm not an expert on wireless networking but I know just enough to be dangerous. You can connect several devices wirelessly to your router including your two laptops. However, everything does have to be compatible.

How did you set up your Belkin router? Did you set up a security protocol? WEP is an older less secure protocol. Perhaps your router was set up with WPA or WPA2 and the MAC is only compatible with WEP. Just a possibility.

I have a Belkin wireless router that fails to connect to the internet which is the final step in the installation process. All the connections are correct. It will try to connect to the internet up to ten times but still there is no connection. I even tried installing it on my wife's laptop but still the same problem. I already checked all the cables and they all work correctly.

My computer can detect the wireless connection, connect to it, and even access the control panel through but the green light (on the router, which refers to Internet) doesn't blink at all. I tried connecting the cable modem directly to my PC and it works perfectly.

Can you help me?

I'm looking for some sort of custom firmware that works on or is specifically for the Belkin Wireless G Router.
I've thought about installing DD-WRT but I'm a bit scared to, and i do not know the version of my router. The sticker that shows the version # is missing.

Basically I just need more advanced features like, most importantly the port forwarding. I have to forward lots of post and port ranges but this router does not allow port range forwarding and it only allows like 19 ports.
I don't have the money to just go buy another one so I'm wondering if there is any easy to install firmware for my router.

Hello all,

I wonder if you can help me at all. I have a wireless Belkin ADSL modem with Wireless G router.

I have spent the last two days trying to fix this and I haven't been able to unfortuantely.

Right so here goes....

I have reset my router several times and sometimes got the option of "Internet Status: Connected" on the belkin help page www.

However in the internet connections I have had the router is "aciring network address" I unfortuantely dont know what the hell this means...

I called Belkin up and they hung up on me as I dont think they knew what else to do. Tescos my ISP says that I am getting the internet. However I cant use anything when the router is connected... MSN, IE, EMAILS nothing will connect to the computer.

Can you please help me I am desperate!

Hi guys,
I have a brand new Belkin N+ router. It was working fine from last 10 months. But recently , say from last 20 days happening a issue with the wireless router. the internet will work for few hours properly, suddenly Internet will cut off or wireless router hanged up for a few seconds. the led for internet will either go off or go orange. Sometimes even the modem led will turn off or go orange. It takes about 10 seconds then its back on or else I need to restart the router. After restarting the router, the Internet will work fine.

Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

Much appreciated.


A:Belkin n+ wireless router problems

If the modem is losing the connection, I'd start there. Make sure the connections to the modem and router are secure, make sure you have good power (a UPS is a good idea here).

Another thing that you can do is update the firmware to the latest available and then reset to factory defaults and reconfigure. You wouldn't happen to be using P2P applications now, would you? Those will drive many routers up the wall.
