    does it appear in the "available wireless networks" from your client computer? if so, does it appear as a protected network?

Try this also

1 Make sure your modem is connected to the WAN port on your router

2 unplug the power to the modem and router then plug in the modem first and wait for it to fully initialize (you will see the lights come on one at a time until they are all lit and the activity light is flashing) then plug in the power cord to the router

3 Open network connections and "right click" your local area network connection and select "status" and look to see if there are numbers in both send and receive packets. if you only see numbers in one of them (usually send) then it is a connection problem with the LAN cable and you need to make sure it is plugged in all the way solid at both ends but if you see numbers in both boxes then click on the "properties button" then click on "Internet protocol TCP/IP" and then properties again and verify that it is set to "obtain IP address automatically" and the same for "DNS server address" then click ok to close the properties box and then before closing the status window click on the "support" tab and where it says connection status verify that it does NOT have an IP address that starts with 169.x.x.x because an address of 169. means that your computer was unable to acquire an IP address from your router and has assigned itself a default 169 address. And it should have an address that begins with 192.168.x.x (BELKIN default is usually 192.168.3.x and x=any number between 2 to 250 depending on how many computers you have connected to your router

(The following is assuming you have cable internet or have already configured your router for ds)l

4 if you see an ip address there that begins with 192 then your router is probably working fine but has for some reason not acquired an internet IP address from your modem or ISP and the best way to check that would be to log into your router Config page (check router instructions for default login password) and once you are in the Config page click "status" and if you see all zeros in the box then click "renew ip" and it will attempt to acquire IP from modem and if it fails then try unplugging modem again and plugging it back in and after modem boots up click renew again or click “IP release” then “IP renew” could be different depending on router.
There must be numbers in the router connection status other than 0’s for the internet to work.

Once there is an address in the router status info then you should be able to connect to the internet if all of the above is ok

But since there are so many different things that it could be then please try the above and if you still can not connect t hen let me know and I will add more info (wow I really didn’t intend on typing this much…lol) but better thorough than not

My Belkin 4 port router has the same IP as my Modem so my router will not detect my DSL connection. Ive asked Belkin for help but all they send me is gobblygoop!


Hi!
I'm sorry to hear that Belkin did not help you with your problem. Let me help you with your concern instead.

Here's what we need to do:

Start by resetting the router to factory default - you just need to press and hold the rest button on the router for about 30 seconds (with the power on).

1.) Disconnect the Belkin router from your modem , connect a PC to the router (use the LAN port - either port 1 to 4).

2.) Open Internet browser - clear the address bar and type in http://192.168.2.1 , press enter. It will ask you for a password , do not type anything just press Submit. You should be able to access the router's web interface.

The router's web interface should like this (depending on the model #):

92853d1.jpg



3.) Go to LAN settings. Change the router's IP address to 10.10.10.1 (this will be the new IP address of your router) . Apply the changes. Once youapply the changes, you can access the router using the new IP - http://10.10.10.1.

4.) Reconnect your modem - router and computers. Reboot device by switching off the modem , router and PC.

5.) Power up the modem first. Wait for about 2 minutes, power up the router and restart your PC.

The steps I gave is applicable if your modem is not on bridge mode. If your modem is on bridge mode (meaning it requires a username and password from your ISP) - access again the router by going to http://10.10.10.1 and do the following:

Click Internet WAN > Connection Type and select PPPOE. Type the username and password from your ISP. Apply the settings. Reboot the modem and router.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


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.
