First of all what computer do you have???
That is bases for all the questions. You need to download all of the drivers (audio, video, Network card driver, chipset, and others). From the computer vendor (manufacturer).
For you get all that, you need a working computer, access the Internet and download all the drives and put it on a CD, installed on the computer you are working on. (Hopefully the CD reader is working).
Just reinstalling the operating system is only get you a clean hard drive new operating system and application not the motherboard setup and drivers you need to have the computer function as a computer.
In order for your modem communicate with the ISP , the network card must be configured to accept automatic IPS configuration. To do that, after you have the network card working (offline). Turn on the modem and connected the modem to the computer. The computer will automatically get the IP address from the IPS. you should be on line. Till then, good luck, and good fishing.

How can I get my Belkin router to read my Seagate storage device so that all computers in the house can access said Seagate storage device?

1) Turn off your wireless router and unplug the external hard drive you want to make wireless.
2) Plug an Ethernet cable to the "Network-attached storage" device, and the other end of the cable to an available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
3) Connect one end of the USB cable to the wireless router's available USB port and the other end of the USB cable to your "External" hard drive.
4) Turn on the both the Wireless router and the External hard drive. Make sure that your Internet connection is still working.
5) Insert the installation CD and run it on your computer. Follow the installation instructions and install any utilities related to your external hard drive. There may be special utilities provided for flash drives that are not needed for hard drives.
6) Create a login name and security password for the "NAS" device during the setup process. When the installation process is completed, you will now be able to use your external hard drive.
