    thanks for those tips. I have tried most of them and failed to get working. The laptop uses wireless and the desktop uses cable but neither gets any internet. Would the software need updating? haven't tried that one yet. the laptop picks up the router perfectly but the router seems that it doesn't pick up the internet via the Ethernet cable. Both the laptop and desktop uses xp pro .
    Thanks any more help would be appreciated

I'm assuming you are using windows XP or similar. You can check your tcp/ip protocols and local pc adaptor by 'pinging'. open the command prompt - 'start', 'all programs', 'accessories', 'command prompt'. Then type 'ping 127.0.0.1' without quotes. If there is 'no loss' of data, your pc is basically sound, as are the protocols.

Try reaching your router by typing 192.168.2.1 (or look on bottom of router or documentation for IP address). It may ask for user name and password which should be with documentation. You need to be able to reach your router before you can use the net.



If using a cable, check out your LAN by going to 'control panel', 'network connections', then find the LAN icon. Right click and left click on 'properties'. under the 'general' tab scroll to ' internet protocol tcp/ip'. double click on this. under the general tab make sure ip address and dns is obtained automatically.

If you're using the wireless capability (ie not network cable) right click on the wireless connection to 'view available networks'. try to connect to one. You may need a WEP/WPA etc password. You could try connecting a network cable from pc to router to see if it's a wireless problem or not.

In control panel look at 'internet options' and 'connections' tab. make sure it's set to use the right connection (eg mine just uses the LAN).

sorry if this is a bit muddled but there are many possibilities. Any more info on your setup would be helpful.

I'm trying to set up a new laptop to my belkin router


When you first setup a wireless router you need to connect the wireless router to the computer with a LAN cable.
Then you open a browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and on the address bar you type the IP configuration address of the wireless router eg. for Belkin wireless router it is http://192.168.2.1
Enter the default login name and password.
You should change the password and you should setup WAP or WAP2 encryption (WAP2 is the strongest encryption) and change the SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
For further wireless protection enable MAC address filtering. The MAC address of the wireless card is entered in the router MAC address filter table, which allows only the wireless card with this MAC address to connect to the router.
The wireless card on the computer needs to be configured with the wireless router's settings. The LAN cable can be removed and the computer communicates wirelessly with the router.

I cant communicate with belkin wireless g router


It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.
