Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am unable to connect wirelessly using a Belkin N Wireless router. The main desktop (where the router is located) has a DSL connection that works (and I can browse) and my wireless devices (iphone, laptop) find the connection but cannot get to the internet. I've tried both the "Dynamic" connection type and the "PPPoE" and get different light patterns on the router but the same results on the computers.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

Is there a way to hook into my dsl internet to get wifi


Does your DSL not have a wireless router? If not, you can certainly get one for cheap...walmart has Belkin/Netgear/ASUS wireless routers for about $40...the instructions are pretty straight-forward. It's a cheap and easy. let me know if you need assistance.

When i first connect my daughters computer with an belkin wireless router than i stop working than i purchase an d-link not thinking it would make a different but it didn't and still not working do i ahve...


No you can't use two routers (without being an expert to set them up correctly!). Make sure the Belkin isn't plugged in while you're setting up the D-Link. To diagnose the culprit, try these steps:

1) Plug your daughter's computer directly into the ethernet port of the DSL or Cable Modem. You'll need to do this to rule out your Daughter's PC as the problem. If it works fine, then move to step 2. If her computer still isn't working, and another computer connected the same way DOES work - then you need to work on your daughter's computer, becasue that's where the problem lies.

2) Ok since you confirmed your daughter's PC is just fine - and also the DSL or Cable connection is working as well - this indicates most likely the router(s) are at fault. So let's work with the D-Link, since we're not sure if the Belkin is working. Like I said, be sure the Belkin is completely unplugged and powered OFF. Now plug the D-Link into your DSL or Cable modem ethernet port. Turn on the D-Link, make sure the correct indicators are lit on both the DSL/Cable modem and the router. Reboot your daughter's PC and right-click on the wireless networking icon on her taskbar. Choose view available wireless networks - if you see your D-link listed, then the router is working! If you still can't connect - try disabling WEP/WAP and try again. Most likely it's just a security setting that's off.

Good Luck!

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D
