Unable to link a wifi enabled laptop to my wired pc and modem

I have attached a Belkin N wireless router to my wired pc. I have also recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite L300D wifi enabled laptop and have tried to connect this to my router.I have followed the on-line procedures but keep getting an error message stating that the laptop cannot detect a connection. I have not got a clue how to fix this. The laptop was in very close proximity to the router, so I tried moving it further away, but still keep getting the error message. What am I doing wrong? Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in anticipation

Alex

Make sure that the wifi switch is on in the laptop. Look for a sliding switch in the front or side panel of the laptop. Make sure that it is on.

Hope this helps!

Belkin Router Connection Issue


well.. if you have a laptop, or a pc, you better have in those a wifi modem built in your computer.. most of the laptops now have those things already integrated, and PCs.. well, youll have to buy a PCI card to suit you better... if you dont, youll need to buy a wifi modem...

then, if you used to have your internet connection through wire to your computer, youll have to unplug that and plug it into your belkin router...

then, if you have the wifi modem in your computer, there will be an icon in the task bar (where the clock is) where you can see all wireless conections..
find yours and you are done..
if you need more help, dont hesitate to ask.. ill be alert..
happy new year..

You must login to the router and setup the wireless. Make sure you turn the WIFI broadcast on (enable it) so you can actually have wifi signal.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router, model F5D7634-4.


If the reset did not help ,i would suggest you talk to the Belkin Support team and get a replacement. Since its a new router, I assume it has an up to date firmware .

I have recently bought a Belkin Wireless Router and I am unable to connect to the Internet on my laptop. What do I need to do to connect my laptop to the internet using the Belkin Wireless router?


your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.

You must configure the wireless settings of the laptop manually. It should match the wireless settings of your router. If you have wireless encryption enabled, make sure to type the network key on the wireless settings of your laptop.

Belkin router with a laptop


1. First you need to configure your router with your laptop wired or physically connected to it.
2. Connect your modem to router's WAN/Internet port. Then your laptop will be connected to the one of the router's Ethernet port using an RJ45 or Ethernet cable.
3. You may run the setup cd that came with the router. Configure it with the Internet connection type that Bell Sympatico requires.
4. The setup cd will also require you to set up wireless in the router. Once it is done, disconnect your computer from the router.
5. Enable wifi in your laptop and select the wireless network that you set up and connect to it.
