Alright, First thing is to sett up the router properly. How well experience in this are you? Do you know how to IP into it and set it up manually? do you just use the easy install disk? Do you know ow to set up the encryption key?

Im asking so i dont have to spend alot of typing, explaining something you may already know. If you dont though, its o.k. I will help you.


Typically you want to set the router up first and set an encryption key. Usually something that no one can geuss like ADMIN or PASSWORD or something easily guessed. Also you name your router, like " The Big Puff or My router or some name that no one else will have so you can easily distinguish your wireless signal from others. Default is LINKSYS and the default IP is 192.168.1.1 and the password is ADMIN.

If you flip the router upside down, you will see a spot that tells you this. Thats why you have to change it, cuz everyone knows it.

Also, you need to set the Router password too so that no one else can ip into it and change it on you.

Alot of the times, the setup disk will have a easy setup wizard that can make this easy for newbies.

You want to be sure to have a secure and functioning router. Once this is achieved, install the wireles adapter and drivers software.

You have two options, use windows to control the adapter or the belkins utility that came with it. whichever works best for you.

Now in the options you have to set up the connection or you can just findit,click and connect and enter the encryption.

If windows is running the show for the adapter, you can right click on your wireless icon in the bottom right corner and select, " VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

When it loads it will show all signals including yours if you set up the router right.

Yours should be the strongest signal as well.

Select it or double click it and windows will automatically try to connect and when it does it will ask for the encryption key that you gave it earlier when you set up the router.

Enter that in exactly with caps and lower case where applicable.

It should then connect.

The situation is similar when using the belkins utility instead except that its more graphically friendly.

All wireless devices are made to be used with each other and have the same FCC requirements and theoretically it should matter which brand you use, they should all be compatible if there of the same type. I.E. G or B.

Try this and let me know if you still need help.

Dont bw affraid to call linksys on setting up your wireless router. When i first started out and knew nothing, i called linkysys for help and the guy walked me through the whole thing. Same with Belkin, allthough belkin support was not as good.

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!


I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to www.bioticaindia.com and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Have a linksy's router and just got a belkin adaptor for the other room.won't work.


the router is Linksys and the adapter is belkin. Well both the devices are compatible with each other. When you tr y to connect to the wireless network , do you see your wireless network ? What is the operating system on the computer ? If it is XP and you are using the Belkin utility to connect to the wireless network , then it will be better to switch over to XP utility. Make sure that you have the correct network key for the wireless network. If you don't know the network password then you will need to access the router set up. Click Here for step by step solutions

Trying to use belkin router with linksys adapter cards..do i need new drivers


You need to configure the Belkin router with a SSID and WAP or WEP encryption, Then install the Linksys adapter driver in the computer and then configure the Linksys adapter with the Belkin router settings (ie. the SSID and encryption) before the Linksys can communicate eith the Belkin router.

No internet access with new Linksys wireless PCI Adapter


Don .bin is a firmware that can upload to the linksys router or any router.

So it seems that your unable to connect wirelessly using the linksys adapter? The Internet connection before is working properly?

*I might advise you to reinstall the driver of your wireless adapter using the latest driver that you can download in there support site.

- Check the Internet connection hardwired to the router if connection works it seems that problem is on the adapter.

Linksys Wireless-N pci adapter model wmp300n


If it says local or unidentified network that means you are just connected to the router on the network but not through the internet. Try to go to manage wireless network, remover your network there and add it again, connect to your own network and make sure to type the correct network key., then check again. You can also try connecting to other wireless network to further isolate the problem.

How to set up network on belkin G+ wireless usb adapter


do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?

This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.

something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.

If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01

or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
