I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.
if it says limited connectivity then the port on the router for ethernet is not working
* u need to do hard reset on the router using a paper clip
* press the reset till u get a feel of a click
* then hold it down for 1 min
* then while holding unplug the powercable and plug it back
* then release the reset then try with cable connected to computer then if not working
* check with different cable if not working try with different computer
*still doesnt work then u need to replace the router as the ports on the router not working
It sounds as though you are using both a belkin wireless router and the 2wire 2700HG-B Router. Setting up 2 routers to work together can be tricky and unless there is some specific reason to do so I recommend you just use the 2wire router.
as far as I know it would not work due to auto configuration of DHCP settings in the router when using cable internet. You may have to manually configure this to get it to work. If you are using dsl, I dont think it will work at all.
If it was to work, this is how I would do it:
Using Cat 5 cabling
Modem -> N Router -> G Router
Be sure to plug modem into the uplink port on N router. Then go from port 1 on N router to uplink on G Router. Set both routers to DHCP setting and see if that works. Im going to try this when I get home. It actually sounds ideal, never thought of it myself.
Try the manual method.connect router to pc with ethernet cable
1.logon to 192.168.0.1
2.Connection type ; PPPOE
3.type in your username@ISp and pass
5.Configure wireless setting(SSID,Wep)
Configure pc with the same SSID and WEP
uplug the ethernet cable and check if your are able t connect wireless
You need to start from beginning.
Clear all temp internet files and run this programme
Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.
Get into the routers settings(probably 192.168.2.1) and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first)
If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps)
look in Mac address Filtering is off.
Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection.
Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked.
Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly
