I have a THomsom router and a laptop with a Belkin card (adaptor). Previously it was working fine but I had to re-install my CD (system) because my computer was slow and now it is impossible to connect wireless. I have the connection in the house but the wireless does not work!

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.
What is pictured on your request, is wireless.. are you on a laptop or a desktop ? Most desktops do not have wireless built in, you would need to buy a CAT/5 network cable to plug in from the PC to your Cable Modem/Router. Then you would use IE to access it, or Belkin's built in installer and configuration software. Some older laptops do not have wireless and/or bluetooth built in. You would then need to buy a PCMCIA card or USB dongle to get back in the grove of the router.

The Belkin site has very specific instructions for installing this adapter in a pc with Vista. These instructions are at: http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?lid=en&pid=F5D9050&aid=6112&scid=0 I would first unistall any Belkin Software that has already been installed, shut down the system completely and then restart. After you have fully restarted the system then follow the Belkin Site instructions EXACTLY. Any variation is apt to mean an unsuccessful install. Good Luck and have patience.
Uninstall the Belkin software and see if it helps. If not, then you will have to do a soft reinstall of the OS over the curent install with your Packard Bell Windows Cd, or a fresh install. (Make sure you make a back if you are doing a fresh install.
If you have made a restore point earlier, you can try to restore the system to a point before you installed the Belkin router. This way you do not need to do a fresh Windows install. But you will lose any data you stored since the time of that restore point.
Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button.
Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
1. Try and uninstall the Belkin client software
2. Check to see if the WZCSVC service is running
You can check this by issuing the following command:
a) net start
b) sc query wzcsvc
Both command should list some info about WZCSVC (Wireless Zero
Configuration) if it is running.
3. If your wireless card is installed successfully, you should see a
antenna-type icon in the system tray.
If not, you need to install the drivers for the card manually. Check
the Belkin CD for drivers.
4. If you can see your new router's SSID (wireless name) then you should be
able to see it as a non-admin as well.
5. Failing all of this, retry the Belkin client software and its
documentation for indication on non-admin issues or ways to use the above
mentioned Windows wireless client.
Try first dissabling the wired network adaptor, so as the pc is not looking for the wrong area connection.
If you have used Windows to try to repair the connection the settings will be wrong for the router addreses.
Go to your wireless network cards properties and make sure that on the internet protocol the obtain IP address automatically is selected.
Run this flush:- Click Start>Run, then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
Re-start pc and type the routers address in your internet browser.
Go to your router settings and ensure enable DHCP is set to automatically allocate ip addresses.
