Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

Wireless G Router


the ask4 ISP has the following on their website.
"ask4 broadband works differently from most other broadband providers. With our broadband you do not need a telephone line or a modem, all you need is an Ethernet Enabled computer."

Assuming that this is the case, you need to make sure that your computer and other devices are hidden behind a standard firewall router, that supports NAT. (NAT stands for network address translation)

My other assumption is that by resetting your firewall router to the factory default settings. by and large this will enable a couple of things;
1 it will enable your router to obtain a Dynamic WAN address (this is the port plugged into the wall socket).
2 it will enable your routers inbuilt DHCP server, this will let your computers etc obtain a dynamic IP address + hide them behind your inbuilt firewall.

if you use the wireless option you will need to set this up from scratch, but I guess that you would have done this before. If you need further information check the routers user manual, just go to the manufactures website and search for your model the manual should freely avaliable.

I have bought a belkin wireless g router. my pc is virgin broadband i need to connect an aspire lap top. where do i plug in to make the router work


Hello,

If you have your pc connected directly to your Virgin Broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.

Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.

After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.

Thanks
