Belkin Wireless G Router causes loss of internet connection

I just moved and am trying to setup my wireless home network. The internet connection (verizon dsl) works just fine when the modem (Westell Wirespeed) is connected directly to my pc, but when I try to connect the Belkin wireless modem I lose internet. I have tried resetting the router, but this does not help. When I run ipconfig under the command prompt my computer does not even show any information for the Belkin router. I have lost the software for the router, which would probably fix everything. Is there anything else I can do or do I just have to go buy a different router?

Does your router have one LED lamp for each "wired" port?
If so, does unplugging the Ethernet-cable (the one that connects to your desktop PC) cause the lamp to go off?
Does reconnecting that cable cause the lamp to go on?

Also, on your desktop computer, there could be a lamp right beside where the Ethernet-cable connects into your computer.
Again, disconnect the cable, and reconnect the cable, to see if that lamp goes off/on.

Have you tried a different cable?

Do *NOT* connect your desktop computer to the 'WAN' port on the router -- connect it to any of the "LAN" ports.

No wireless internet - problem with belkin router


From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.
