Introduction
Placement of your Wireless Networking
Hardware for Optimal Performance
If you have concerns about your network’s performance that might
be related to range or obstruction factors, try moving the computer
to a position between five and 10 feet from the wireless router (or
access point) in order to see if distance is the problem. If difficulties
persist even at close range, please contact Belkin Technical Support.
Your wireless connection will be stronger the closer your computer
is to your wireless router (or access point). Typical indoor operating
range for your wireless devices is between 100 and 200 feet. In the
same way, your wireless connection and performance will degrade
somewhat as the distance between your wireless router (or access
point) and connected devices increases. This may or may not be
noticeable to you. As you move farther from your wireless router
(or access point), connection speed may decrease. Factors that
can weaken signals simply by getting in the way of your network’s
radio waves are metal appliances or obstructions, and walls.
Note: While some of the items listed below can affect network
performance, they will not prohibit your wireless network from
functioning; if you are concerned that your network is not operating
at its maximum effectiveness, this checklist may help.

Introduction
1. Placement of your Wireless Router (or Access Point)
2. Avoid Obstacles and Interference
Place your wireless router (or access point), the central
connection point of your network, as close as possible
to the center of your wireless network devices.
Avoid placing your wireless router (or access point) near devices
that may emit radio “noise”, such as microwave ovens. Other
objects that can inhibit wireless communication can include:
To achieve the best wireless network coverage for your “wireless
clients,” (i.e., computers enabled by Belkin Adapters or Cards):
• Refrigerators
• Washers and/or dryers
• Ensure that your wireless router’s (or access point’s)
antennas are parallel to each other, and are positioned
vertically (toward the ceiling). If your wireless router (or
access point) itself is positioned vertically, point the
antennas as much as possible in an upward direction.
• Metal cabinets
• Large aquariums
• Metallic-based, UV-tinted windows
• In multistory homes, place the wireless router (or access point) on a
floor that is as close to the center of the home as possible. This may
mean placing the wireless router (or access point) on an upper floor.
• Microwaves
If your wireless signal seems weak in some spots, make sure
that objects such as these are not blocking the signal’s path
between your computers and wireless router (or access point).
• Try not to place the wireless router (or access
point) near a cordless 2.4GHz phone.

Introduction
3. Cordless Phone Placement
4. Choose the “Quietest” Channel for your Wireless Network
If the performance of your wireless network is impaired after
attending to the above issues, and you have a cordless phone:
In locations where homes or offices are close together, such
as apartment buildings or office complexes, there may be
wireless networks nearby that can conflict with yours. Use the
Site Survey capabilities of your Belkin Wireless Networking
Utility to locate any other wireless networks, and move
your wireless router (or access point) and computers to a
channel as far away from other networks as possible.
• Try moving cordless phones away from the wireless router
(or access point) and your wireless-enabled computers.
• Unplug and remove the battery from any cordless phone that
operates on the 2.4GHz band (check manufacturer’s information).
If this fixes the problem, your phone may be interfering.
Experiment with more than one of the available channels in
order to find the clearest connection and avoid interference
from neighboring cordless phones or other wireless devices.
• If your phone supports channel selection, change the channel
on the phone to the farthest channel from your wireless network
as possible. For example, change the phone to channel 1 and
move your wireless router (or access point) to channel 11.
(Your channel selection will vary depending on your region.)
See your phone’s user manual for detailed instructions.
For more Belkin wireless networking products,
use the detailed Site Survey and wireless channel
information included in your User Manual.
• If necessary, consider switching to a
900MHz or 5GHz cordless phone.

Introduction
If you continue to have difficulty with Secure Connections,
VPNs, and AOL, please review steps 1–4 in the previous
pages to be sure you have addressed these issues.
5. Secure Connections, VPNs, and AOL
Secure connections typically require a user name and password, and
are used where security is important. Secure connections include:
• Virtual Private Network (VPN) connections, often
used to connect remotely to an office network
These guidelines should allow you to cover the maximum possible
area with your wireless router. Should you need to cover an even wider
area, we suggest the Belkin Wireless Range Extender/Access Point.
• The “Bring Your Own Access” program from America
Online (AOL), which lets you use AOL through broadband
provided by another cable or DSL service
For more information regarding our networking products,
visit our website at www.belkin.com/networking
or call Belkin Technical Support.
• Most online banking websites
• Many commercial websites that require a user
name and password to access your account
Secure connections can be interrupted by a computer’s power
management setting, which causes it to “go to sleep.” The simplest
solution to avoid this is to simply reconnect by re-running the
VPN or AOL software, or by re-logging into the secure website.
A second alternative is to change your computer’s power
management settings so it does not go to sleep; however,
this may not be appropriate for portable computers. To
change your power management setting in Windows,
see the “Power Options” item in the Control Panel.

determine the type of security (WPA/WPA2 or WEP)
and use the appropriate field in the dialog box.
Wireless Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a less secure, but
more widely adopted wireless security protocol. Depending
on the security level (64- or 128-bit), the user will be
asked to input a 10- or 26-character hex key. A hex key
is a combination of letters, a–f, and numbers, 0–9.
Wi-Fi Protected Access ® (WPA®/WPA2 ®) is the new standard
in wireless security. Instead of a hex key, WPA/WPA2 uses only
passphrases, which are much easier to remember. The passphrase
is 8–63 characters and can consist of alphabet letters and numbers.
24
Troubleshooting
I can’t connect to the Internet wirelessly.
If you are unable to connect to the Internet from a wireless
computer, please check the following items:
Look at the lights on your wireless router. If you’re using a
Belkin Wireless Router, the lights should be as follows:
• The “Power” light should be on and not blinking.
If this is NOT the case, make sure:
• The router’s power cord is plugged in.
• All cables are connected between the router and the modem.
• A ll the modem’s LEDs are functioning correctly.
If not, see your modem’s user manual.
• Reboot the router.
• Reboot the modem.
If you continue to have issues, please
contact Belkin Technical Support.
If you are not using a Belkin Wireless Router, consult
that router manufacturer’s user guide.
25
Troubleshooting
Data transfer is sometimes slow.
Wireless technology is radio-based, which means connectivity
and the throughput performance between devices decreases
when the distance between devices increases. Other factors that
will cause signal degradation (metal is generally the worst culprit)
are obstructions such as walls and metal appliances. As a result,
the typical indoor range of your wireless devices will be between
100 to 200 feet. Note also that connection speed may decrease
as you move farther from the wireless router (or access point).
In order to determine if wireless issues are related to range, we
suggest temporarily moving the computer, if possible, to five to
10 feet away from the wireless router (or access point). Please
see the section titled, “Placement of your Wireless Networking
Hardware for Optimal Performance.” If issues persist even at
close range, please contact Belkin Technical Support.

Changing the wireless channel – Depending on local wireless
traffic and interference, switching the wireless channel of your
network can improve performance and reliability. The default channel
the router is shipped with is channel 6. You may choose from several
other channels depending on your region; see your router’s (or access
point’s) user manual for instructions on how to choose other channels.
27
Troubleshooting
Limiting the wireless transmit rate – Limiting the wireless
transmit rate can help improve the maximum wireless range, and
connection stability. Most wireless cards have the ability to limit
the transmission rate. To change this property, go to the Windows
Control Panel, open “Network Connections” and double-click on
your Adapter’s connection. In the “Properties” dialog, select the
“Configure” button on the “General” tab, then choose the “Advanced”
tab and select the rate property. Wireless client cards are usually
set to automatically adjust the wireless transmit rate for you, but
doing so can cause periodic disconnects when the wireless signal
is too weak; as a rule, slower transmission rates are more stable.
Experiment with different connection rates until you find the best
one for your environment; note that all available transmission
rates should be acceptable for browsing the Internet. For more
assistance, see your wireless card’s literature. If issues persist
even at close range, please contact Belkin Technical Support.
The Adapter does not perform or connection is unstable
when computer has a second built-in wireless network
card (such as a mini PCI or Intel ® Centrino™).
This condition occurs if your computer has a built-in
wireless card while your Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB
Adapter is also active. This happens because Windows
must now handle two active wireless connections.
You must disable the built-in wireless card from your computer
under “Network Adapters” in the Device Manager.
28
Troubleshooting
The Adapter does not perform or connection is slow
when computer has a built-in wired Ethernet card.
What’s the difference between 802.11g and 802.11n?
Currently there are three commonly used wireless networking
standards, which transmit data at very different maximum
speeds. Each is based on the designation for certifying network
standards. The most common wireless networking standard,
802.11g, can transmit information up to 54Mbps; 802.11a
also supports up to 54Mbps, but in the 5GHz frequency;
and 802.11n specification can connect at up to 300Mbps.
See the following chart for more detailed information.
This condition occurs if your computer has an active Ethernet
card while your Adapter is also active. This happens because
Windows must now handle two active network connections.
You must disable the Ethernet card from your computer
under “Network Adapters” in the Device Manager.
