If you are mainly using a wireless network at home or at work, it is inevitable that at some point you will try to access the Internet and the Belkin G wireless router will not work properly. This is especially true if you like to access router settings to make security changes such as adding passwords, bridges or even allowing firewalls. In some cases, the resolution of a Belkin router is simple and fast, but in other cases, it may be necessary to do a complete reset of the device.
- Remove the Ethernet cable module to the WAN port located on the back of the router and connect the cable to the Ethernet port on the computer. This eliminates the router from the equation and connects the computer directly to the internet modem. Access the Internet on your computer. If you still can’t connect, the problem is with the ISP and not the Belkin router. If the Internet works, connect the Ethernet cable back to the LAN port of the router. Internet connection attempt again. If it still doesn’t work, move on to the next step.
- Restart all wireless network components. Start by turning off the computer. Once the computer is turned off, pull the power cord out of the back of the wireless router. With the router, pull the power cord out of the back of the internet modem. Once all components are turned off, turn the internet modem back to insert it. Allow the modem a minute to start the backup. Connect the Belkin wireless router back and allow a minute to boot fully. Turn on the computer and allow it to connect to the Internet. If an Internet connection is not established within five minutes of starting, proceed to the next step.
- Complete the reset of the router with the modem. To do this, push a pin into the reset hole on the back of the router. Do not hold the pin in the reset hole. The lights on the router flash once the router is reset. This is a soft reset and does not lose personal router settings. Allow the router a minute to establish the connection. Check the Internet on the computer. If it still doesn’t work, move on to the next step.
- Complete a total reset of the router by pressing a pin in the reset hole and holding it in for 10 seconds. This clears all personal router settings, including security passwords, filtering, bridging, and firewalls. Any computer with Wi-Fi capability can connect to the router. Allow one minute for the router to reboot fully once the lights flash. Check your Internet connection.
