    crappy belkin N150 router


    Hello there!
    I joined this forum so I can say my experience with the crappy belkin N150 router.
    It appears you need to run the setup cd under windows to make the router 'see' the modem.
    Under linux as someone pointed out you can easily enter the router setup from a browser ( enter 192.168.2.1 ) and connect to the router only (wired or wireless connection) but not the internet. Does anyone have any idea what the windows setup is doing to connect the router to the modem and how to do it under linux in the browser?
    Thanks in adnvance!

    Hello and Welcome!

    You can access the router configuration from any browser, on any OS, buy using the default IP of the router. The only purpose of the installation CD is to run a network setup wizard of sorts.
    Name your network, set security type, and so on.

    Is that what you were wondering?

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    I agree with you and I have no problem changing router settings in the browser by using the ip address of the router.

    I meant to say there's no way to make the router connect to the modem without using the windows installation cd.

    If it's any use I'm running linux mint 9 isadora (based on ubuntu lucid lynx). My isp doesn't have any passwords and the wiring is correct.

    Ah... gotcha.
    Power cycle your modem before connecting the router. It may be retaining the MAC of your old router in its ARP file.
    Power cycle your router after that.

    Howdy!
    I agree with Jay. The CD has nothing of Value, it only works in Windows because well, Windows needs help seeing everything that isn't built by MS.

    Can you post the output of these commands please?
    Code:
    sudo lspci -knn
    sudo ifconfig -a
    sudo lsmod

    I guess I should ask an important question that I should have thought to ask earlier
    jarg, are you actually able to reach the router page from your computer right now? Just not connecting to the actual Internet?

    the long story

    So I should say what's the current situation. The really long story!

    In the beginning i tried to do the setup under linux, didn't work cause the router couldn't see the modem, but I could connect to the router. So I went to windows run the setup several times and after a long time the setup managed to connect the router to the modem. I don't know exactly what happened. But it was working.

    Then I decided to do a backup using a live cd (parted magic).
    Got bored tried to access the wifi. And from that time the router can't see the modem again unless I connect to it with the wire!

    As soon as I connect to the wifi the router drops the connection to the modem!!!! So now I'm on wired connection to the router and it works...

    Some more info. Idk if it's useful.
    Another laptop can connect to the wifi with no problems.
    As soon as I (my laptop) connect to the wifi the router drops the connection to the modem and no one else can access the internet (wired or wifi).
    This happens when I'm under both windows and linux on wifi...
    Weird stuff...

    I'll try to connect to other wifi tomorrow with this laptop to make sure my network adapter works.
    Thanks for any input!

    It looks good to me. I'm not sure if it's the same driver or not but you might have better luck using this one.
    Broadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
