Windows 7: Belkin N150 Router-Need Help in configuring!

[Solved] Set-up Belkin N150 Router with Beetel 200BX

Hi Friends,

I just bought a Belkin N150 Wireless Router. I followed the instructions on the Quick Installation guide leaflet, which i have uploaded:



Then I insert the CD and run the setup assistant. It checks the connection to the router and then prompts a restart. After the restart, I am prompted to name the connection



In the next step, I am asked what kind of connection I have. I call up AirTel (my ISP) broadband customer care and ask them about this. The customer care executive replies that it is a PPPoE connection. So i select that and click Next.



Now, I am asked for the login details. The customer care executive provides me with my login info. I type all this and click next.



Next, the setup tries to connect to the internet and a progress bar appears.



After the progress bar reaches 100%, the following screen comes up:



The 'Wired' and 'Modem' status lights on the router are green. The 'Internet' status light is orange and it blinks.

So what am I doing wrong here? The Airtel executive tells me that there may be a conflict with the LAN addresses of the Airtel Modem and the Belkin Router. I have uploaded the config pages of both the Airtel Modem and the Belkin router, as you can see both have different IP addresses

Airtel Modem Config Page


Belkin Router Config Page


My system config is:

Core2 6300 @1.86Ghz
Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Beetel 200BX ADSL Modem

Any help is appreciated! I have spent 3 hours getting this to work, but to no avail!:-(

Are you absolutely certain that you have to log into your modem with your router? In most situations (cable, etc) the modem logs in to the ISP and then the router just splits the connection and provides a firewall, wireless, etc.

When you connect your PC to your modem directly, what steps do you take to become connected to the internet? Do you have to input a username/password and/or do you have one stored in your network settings? If not, you should be able to simply connect the router to the modem and then set it up without "logging in".

I'm not sure what you mean by logging in to the modem with the router. Can you please explain this a bit more to me?



I connected the Ethernet cable from the modem to the 'Modem' Port (yellow port) on the back of the router. Then, I connected another Ethernet cable from the '1 Wired' port on the rear of the router to the Ethernet port of my computer.

When I connect directly, I open up the network and sharing center, click on 'Change adapter settings', right click on my network card and then click properties.



then I click on IPv4 and then click Properties



then I enter the LAN Address of the modem, and then the primary and secondary DNS addresses provided by my ISP and click OK. Then I am connected to the internet.

I have to disagree, very strongly.

Using a modem and a router, you normally have to reset the modem and leave it as it is, then configure your connection in router. For instance, I'm using Belkin N1 Vision router, which is connected to a modem and further to the net. Modem is as it was when it was delivered from factory, I'm never even looked at the setup. All work (setup) is done in router.

You should forget the setup CD completely and do this:
  • Reset the modem to the factory settings
  • Connect router and modem as told in your instructions
  • Open a browser and open Belkin settings interface by typing http://192.168.2.1 and hitting Enter
  • Click Login

    .
  • Leave the password field empty and click Submit (by default Belkin has no password)
  • Click Internet WAN in left pane, choose PPPoE (in OP's case) on the right and click Next

    .
  • Enter your credentials and click Apply Changes

You should now be connected to the Internet.

When using separate modem and router, it is the router that needs to be configured. DSL, ADSL, VDSL and Cable, no difference.

Ahh, you're in asia, and on a PPPoE connection, I skipped over that part. In most connections in the US the modem itself is setup to connect with the ISP and then anything you connect to the modem will have internet.

--- When you have a Comcast cable connection, you don't have to configure the router to connect to the modem at all, atleast not in the tradition fashion. Yes, you have to setup the wireless, but on comcast anything you connect to the router will have an internet connection automatically, no username, no password.

They may have a specialised connection, as you do have to set up your modem with the Cable company when you first get it, but once you're registered your modem with them, nothing else needs to be done.

I had the same situation when I used Fiberoptics, all I had to do was connect to my local switch, although it may have been preconfigured, it was drilled to the wall in the basement.

It is same all around the world, when using only a modem. When using modem and router, you need to configure the router.

Games Goblin is the question asker

Tater is speaking of the same type of connection that I have, one where the modem does the connecting and all that you have to do is connect the ethernet cable for access.

From what I can tell though, Goblin has a PPPoE connection which requires his PC to have a username and password to connect. If that's the case, then Kari's method minus resetting the modem should work fine.

Notsograymatter, I still think he has to reset the modem. I think he has only had a modem earlier, without the router. He tells what his ISP's tech support believed to be the problem:

If he has the ISP credentials saved in modem, he can not configure the router because of a conflict. That's why the modem needs to be reseted.

When installing modems and routers to customers, this is how I do it every time. Take a brand new modem with factory settings, or reset an older modem. Connect modem to the wall (DSL, Cable etc.) and to the router. Connect computer to router, open router's settings and enter credentials. Done.
