Try to configure the 2 routers to work with one another when they are next to each other using standard ;an cable. Once working the powerline should work fine. If you try to configure them when they are apart you have 2 things that could be causing problems to take out the powerline to begin with, then when they are working close, move them apart
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.
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.
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
