Belkin Wireless Router Connection Problems/Hanging/Freezing

Discussion in 'Home Networking' 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

    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:

    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.

    On the assumption you are using NAT, and possibly software firewalls on PCs
    on your LAN, can you not try disabling the security logging on the Belkin
    (or delete some of the rules you have which might cause log entries) ?

    I've not had "hands on" with that model, but an earlier one, and my friend
    has had no similar problems, but we're not using any security feature that
    might cause log entries on the router... he doesn't know how to view the
    router setup (and works away part of most weeks) and just wants family to
    have internet access from the various family PCs, and they'd scream if it
    ground to a halt every day...

    One other aspect - do you happen to use peer-to-peer applications ? Just
    asking because that has been known to cause problems... seems quite a few
    routers cannot cope with the possibility that huge numbers of connections
    may be taking place. Neither I nor my friends use peer-to-peer so we've
    perhaps had no problems as a result of the type of use in our households.

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

    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

    I don't care about your problems.
    Do you have a bad temper?

    No, seems like quite a bit of patience, having tried more than 2 units
    before changing to another manufacturer's equipment. Peter M.
