    Hi, we have a belkin f5d7230-4 router in our house which has been working for a week, but now its being an enormous problem.
    We find only one of us seems to be able to connect at a time, and it only ever seems to be an XP computer that connects.
    The setup we have is three wirless laptops and a desktop connected by an ethernet cable.
    My laptop, XP, goes through a few different situations:
    • It connects to the router but doesn't have any internet connection (whilst only the other XP desktop does)
    • It sees the network but wont connect regardless of the WPA key
    • The successfuly situation where i get internet, but everyone else doesn't
    The Vista laptops come up with an error relating to DNS problems, also on the diagnosis pages they highlight errors between the router and internet rather than the computer and the router, even though a computer in the house is usually connected.
    My guess is that its unlikely to be the cable internet that comes into the house since one is successfully connecting, and its unlikely to be all of the computers simultaneously.
    Thanks in advance for an responses!
    Pete :)

    Do a hard reset on router (straightened paperclip in the little hole for 30 seconds, with the power on).

    Reconfigure the router. Make sure everyone has DHCP enabled (obtaining IP address and DNS automatically).

    If it still doesn't work, you may have to get another router.
