We purchased a computer and a Belkin Wireless Router about 2 years ago. It was working fine. After some time, our computer crashed and I purchased new PC. There was no more software or anything for the router on the system anymore, so I install Belkin router software on the new computer and the router is working smoothly. Today, I decided to try and get my Wi-Fi hooked up to my router. And while I was "detecting" the router it said that it couldn't find any internet connection. What is the problem?
- Begin by clicking Windows Logo > Control Panel.
- Click Network and Internet.
- Click on Network & Sharing Center.
- Click the name of the connection you wish the edit, to the right of Connections.
- Click Properties.
- Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
- Click the radio button next to Use the following DNS server addresses:. This will allow you to enter the DNS server addresses.
- The DNS addresses are as follows:
- Preferred DNS server: 22.214.171.124
- Alternate DNS server: 126.96.36.199
- Click OK on each of the windows and close the Control Panel. Your computer is now configured to use statically assigned DNS server addresses.
For Mac OS X:
- You’ll need to first head into the System Preferences…
- Then click on the Network icon…
- Then you’ll want to select your network card on the left—you’ll see in my example that I’ve got an AirPort card—and then select the Advanced button near the bottom right corner.
- Once you’re there, switch over to the DNS tab, and you can start adding in DNS entries into the list. If you see entries that are grayed out, just ignore them, and click the + symbol at the bottom to add new ones.
- You can add the following two items to the list:
- Open the Settings on the device.
- Select “Wi-Fi”.
- Long press your current network, then select “Modify network”.
- Mark “Show advanced options” check box.
- Change “IP settings” to “Static”
- Add the DNS servers 188.8.131.52 to the “DNS 1”, and 184.108.40.206 “DNS 2” fields.
- Press “Save” button, disconnect from the network, and reconnect for changes to take effect.
If you were able to surf the web but now you can’t then close your internet browser if it’s open and unplug the router’s power cord. Count to 15, which lets the router power down and plug it back in. Wait two minutes for the Belkin router to initialize the connection.
Now open your web browser and try to open a reliable web page, such as www.google.com. If you are installing a router make sure your router is compatible with our network. When your computer connects to the Internet, it is assigned an Internet Protocol address (IP address),
usually a different address each time you connect. If you're experiencing slow or no signal, the problem may be resolved by refreshing your computer's IP address.
