Cannot connect my Mac Pro to the internet via my Belkin wireless
I am unable to connect my Mac Pro computer to the internet via my wireless G router as it request a password which I cannot remember or do not have. The Mac Pro is fitted with airport wireless card and it is working when tested on Aoole wireless systems but requires the password to connect to internet via Belkin Router.
Help me solve this problem so that i can connect to the internet using my Mac Pro.

With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).

Make sure the IP of the Router and the IP of the MAC is in the same scope.
Typically the router acts as DHCP-server and distributing ip-adresses automatically, when a computer is connected. But the the IP can also be set manually.
try to reset it (there's a small button on the back you have to push with a pin)
then connect to the router (the ip is the same as the gateway when typing ipconfig in the command prompt of your computer, as soon as you have connected to it) to change ssid's, weps and other important stuff
If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.
Connect the router directly via lan to your computer.
goto setup of the router: usuallly via the ip-adress of your router (see manual, usually: 192.168. ***.*)
Now look at the network security-settings .
My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)
One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless
or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.
There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.
(01) Which of the following is your router? -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet? YES
(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please) only this machine is connected but it is by.... (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)
(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
HP Pavilion dv2500
(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk
(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on? NO
I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
