I’ll try swapping the antenna. I Can’t even find the install software online – even the Belkin website has a link to download it from; but downloads some completely random file which is nothing at all to do with this device. Great survey, I’m sure you’re getting a great response. However, I am one of the ones who spent many hours fiddling with it and finally got it to work. I bought it from amazon marketplace so am trying to get a refund. I was even accessing the internet via the WURE. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along.

Belkin F5D7132: The Bane of My Existence
Belkin should be banned from selling products based upon this dreadful time zapping machine of hate. Now though, I may sell it. This stunning site will be intriguing and also loaded with essential material. I’m literally at a point right now where the smallest issue could set me off on a tirade, but I do feel somewhat proud of the fact that I managed to stay patient enough to keep trying to figure this thing out even though I really should have given up a long, long time ago.
I’m tempted to burn their building down so I don’t have to perceviere with this. It wasn’t until about a week and a half ago that I decided to open up the box and start setting the thing up.

SG :: Belkin F5D Wireless Access Point
I was able to get it working, but I’m an old hand at IT stuff. Had I read the reviews, I probably wouldn’t have bought this – but it’s now happily ticking along for now anyway Should have known to steer clear with “Belkin” written on the front of them. Your post made me chortle though!
Bernie Zimmermann on October 21, at The manual’s useless, the auto-connect feature is pointless, the firmware is buggy and the web interface is broken. Over the next few months, I’d occasionally sit down in my free time and comb the site for any information or downloads for this product, to no avail.
The following is a detailed account of the ten hours of my life that the Belkin F5D took away from me and that I will never, ever get back.

I’m fd57132 considering buying a whole lot of Cat 5 e cable right now and running it out of the wall in my office, under the house, and then into the wall out in the living room where Lando lives. Secondly because I was too far away to have a wired connection so wireless was my only option.

And im no IT noob either. Although, I figured maybe I could set it up as a wireless repeater, d5d7132 it was intended, but decided against it in case I gave myself an aneurysm. Have communicating and that I will everlastingly help this site Permalink. It worked in a mediocre fashion for a couple of years or less, often belikn through spells of requiring reboots per week to stay up.
A debt of gratitude is in order for this article extremely supportive.
Since we have a G4 MAC with Thankfully it does power up so I know I didn’t get ripped off there, but I can see I may have stepped into a bear trap if what I’m reading is any indication of what’s ahead of me.
I hope it does its job better this time around. To be fair to Belkin, wireless extenders seem to be an unreliable technology at best, although that doesn’t excuse their absurd, barely functioning, web interface. Connecting the thing to a PC is the only way to configure it correctly.
I have WEP security enabled with the same encryption code on both. Consumer network hardware hit a slump in spec’s from the mid’s until a couple years ago.
