Belkin Wireless Router Connection Problems/Hanging/Freezing

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Andrew Clancy, Jul 13, 2005.

  1. Hi,

    I have a problem with my Belkin Wireless Router (f5d7632uk4), and am hoping
    someone out there can help me. It slows down to a halt daily, to a point
    that I cant even connect to it via ethernet until I unplug it and start all
    over.

    I have read this is something to do with the security log growing too big,
    but it only ever shows 30 lines of the log, and clearing it doesn't help.
    (It's exactly the same problem as this guy is having:
    http://forums.broadbandbuyer.co.uk/forum_posts.asp?TID=3198&PN=1)

    I don't believe it is a security problem - it is simply that the security
    log on the router fills up to a point (where it is preventing access
    correctly) that its too large and takes up all the memory of the thing.

    Any other ideas? It's definitely a problem with the router - even if there
    is some 'security problem' going on, I rather the router doesn't just stop.
    I've got everything covered to my satisfaction security-wise.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    You should get on the phone with Belkin about the problem with the router.

    Check for a Firmware update. It's located by logging on to the Web configuration pages.
    There's an option to check for an update. I think it's http://192.168.0.1/ check your manual.
    Here's the manual if you misplaced it.

    I went through three in 5 months - all the same problem. Eventually
    after the third I got so pissed off that I got a refund and bought a
    Netgear.

    No, seems like quite a bit of patience, having tried more than 2 units
