I bought a Belkin 'Play' router to provide wireless internet connectivity from my CLEAR modem. I can't get the router to speedtest at half the speed as being directly connected (via ethernet cable) to the CLEAR Motorla modem. I'm by no means a router expert (more like a novice), and so I've tried every configuration I can find on the internet and nothing seems to help. And, yes, I have a 3+ feet distance between the modem and the ROUTER. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Use an Ethernet cable from the CLEAR modem into the WAN (or 'Internet') port on the Belkin.
Take a close look at the 8 coloured wires at each end of the Ethernet cable.
The 8 wires must be coloured in the _same_ order at both ends.

Be sure that you have a 'CAT-5' or 'CAT-5E' cable, not a 'CAT-3' cable, which is much slower, over long distances.

Use another Ethernet cable from one of the (three? four?) 'LAN' ports on the Belkin to the network-port on your computer. Again, check that you have a "straight-through" cable, not a "cross-over" cable.

Turn the CLEAR modem off.
Turn the Belkin off.
Turn your computer off.

Turn the CLEAR modem on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.

Turn the Belkin on, and wait until its lamps settle-down to a consistent pattern.

Turn your computer on, and let it boot.

You now should have Internet access.

Note that the router "dynamically" shares the Internet connection.
If there are 4 'LAN' ports, then each of the LAN ports gets as much speed as it needs;
you do not have a 25/25/25/25 split, unlike cutting-up an apple-pie to feed 4 people.

Run a "speed-test" on your computer, and you should be getting as much speed as you are paying for. Having the Belkin in the "middle" of your network should *NOT* slow-down the speed-test at all.
