If you have trouble with the router, such as disconnections from the Internet, weak signals or installation problems, you can follow certain troubleshooting techniques to resolve the issues. Note that certain steps may require that you establish administrative rights on your computer.

  • Unplug the router for about 10 seconds. Plug it back in. Sometimes a simple restart can resolve network problems on a Belkin N150 router.

  • Disable the "Windows Firewall," which might be preventing an outgoing connection. Click the "Start" menu, type "Windows Firewall" and press "Enter." Click "Turn Windows Firewall on or off." Click on "Off." Click "OK."

  • Make sure the N150 router is connected properly to your modem with an Ethernet cable via the router's "WAN" port on the back.

  • Turn on "Broadcast SSID." Connect the router to your computer with a network cable. Open a Web browser and type "http://192.168.2.1" in the address bar. Click the "Channel and SSID" page. Click to turn "On" your "Broadcast SSID."

  • Limit the wireless transmission rate to improve range and connection stability. Click the "Start" menu and choose "Control Panel." Click "Network Connections." Double-click your wireless card's connection. Click the "Configure" button on the "General" tab of the dialog box. Click "Advanced." Select a lower transmission rate than the existing setting. Click "OK."

  • Contact your Internet service provider (ISP) if none of the above steps fixes a problem on your Belkin N150 router and request that a technician troubleshoot the malfunction.
