We have relocated and have new service installed last week - tested connection for first time today. Belkin wireless router connection VERY slow - most pages do not resolve (Google will resolve 2 out of 10 times). Direct connection to laptop (remove Belkin wireless router from the equation) via Comcast supplied modem works great - terrific performance. Wireless router worked great prior to new service with Comcast - is there something I am missing. Many thanks in advance.
You need to power cycle or Reset the modem every time you connect something different to it.
I am guessing you hooked the Computer up to the modem first and then pulled it off and connected the router. At that point the modem is still looking for the Computer.
Power everything down (Pull power cords from Router and Modem)
Power up Modem and let it stabilize
Power up Router and let it stabilize
Power up Computer and you should be online.
There has to be something set in there that is causing the problem - or it could be a hardware issue with the router. There should be a factory reset switch - found this:
