    Hi all,
    i used d-link router for few years and now bought Belkin router and it worked great when it was set as default it showed on the Firewall Log and System log it showed it blocked alot of mac-address that tried to join my pc and it showed it blocked from IE some page's and that was great i could see and control what was going on in the router, then i changed alot of settings to have good protection and from then i dont know why it's not showing anything at firewall Log: nothing just empty,

    There should be a reset button at the rear of the router betwix the ports. With the power on press a small non metalic pointer into the hole and hold for ten seconds. Once router has started again turn it off.

    If that has fixed it then great, if not read on.

    If you hardwire to your router and type in the browser I think .
    Write down your security settings,password etc

    Go to Restore Factory settings and follow instructions.

    Come back and tell us what happened :)

    Wired or wireless?
    Give this a try and see if we get a connection.
    Tips on setting up broadband connection, courtesy of Johnwill

    You don't need any setup disk to configure a broadband router.

    Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on. The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.
    • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
    • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
    • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
    • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
    • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
    • Boot the computer.

    When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous command output!

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:


    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>

    PING <dns_servers>


    PING yahoo.com

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.
