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 have the same problem, one moment it works, the next, "No Connection" I use my Belkin adaptor with my Hi Fi to stream Internet radio. I have reset both the adaptor and my router twice without any luck. Check that your Dad has not changed the security settings on the router. If so, you will need to change the the adaptor settings to match. This adaptor does not have the strongest signal, so this also may need repositioning. Good luck. I am about to try re do the settings. failing this i have run out of ideas
Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer?
Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections".
If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it.
If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again.
let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
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.
-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.
Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
A couple of things:
1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)?
2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?;
3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0?
4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port?
Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.
what the adviser meant was your pc cannot provide enough power to the usb port to power the unit, assuming you have tried other ports and it still wont work; you will need to either purchase a pci usb 2.0 card adapter or purchase a mains powered usb hub and connect to this instead.
