Although Belkin 54G wireless routers, such as the F5D7130 and FD72304, allow you to connect devices such as laptops and cell phones to the Internet, connections may at times be erratic. If your wireless router is not performing well, sometimes it is advisable to reset it. You can perform a soft or hard reset on your Belkin 54G wireless router. Unlike a soft reset, a hard reset clears saved settings and restores the factory defaults.
