Huh? You installed Vista through your Virgin Cable Modem? What on earth does that mean?
Are you trying to ask "How do I install my Belkin Wireless G Router?"
If that is the actual question, here is the answer:
1) Unplug your cable modem from your computer. 2) Plug the cable modem into the router using a Ethernet Cable. 3) Plug the router into the computer using another Ethernet Cable. 4) Plug in the power supply for the cable modem and then the router.
(If your cable modem is ONLY USB, and doesn't have a spot to plug in a Ethernet Cable, you'll have to call Virgin and replace the modem with a model that does)
Once everything is up and running, you should be on the internet as soon as the computer starts.
(You may want to log into the router and disable the "Wireless" settings if you aren't using them to stop others from gaining entry to your network)
the limited connectivity means that your router is not connected wirelessly probably because you have not entered the correct passkey, or it's still giving your lan RJ45 network cable the ip address and this is why you are still connected to the net.
If you are on a Netgear modem/router as i suppose you are if it's from sky, you should connect the RJ11 phone line cable into the router leading to a broadband filter, then connect the filter to your phone socket.
There should be no wires between your pc and the router, so take out the wire that is connected to the router (RJ45), which you should have used to set the router up coming from your onboard wired network card.
You will now be connected only via wireless connection, right click on the wireless network icon in your taskbar, click show all connections and then click on your SKY****, whatever it is and then you will need to enter the WPA-PSK security passkey which is with your Sky paperwork or on the router itself.
you still have to use the modem from virgin, mine is setup the same but with a different router, you have the virgin rounter connected to the wireless router then the belkin wireless rounter connectes to you pc instead of the virgin router, your gonna have to log onto the router and setup some security to make the connection safe from others using it.
If you have your pc connected directly to your Virgin Broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.
Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.
After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.
Have you accessed and setup your wireless part of the modem?
To access the router settings menu, you will first need to log into the Wireless router following the steps below: Open Internet Explorer In the address bar type the following address: 192.168.0.1 You will be prompted to enter a Username and Password to access the interface, please use the following default details: Username: This can be found on the bottom of the router Password: This can be found on the bottom of the router From the list on the left hand side, click on ‘Router Status’. Within the Router Status section there are two areas you will be able to access: Show Statistics Connection Status The Router Status page gives you a detailed status overview of the connection configured on the Wireless router. Click ‘Connection Status’ to see more information on the broadband connection. If you have already configured your broadband, you are able to establish/terminate the connection by clicking Connect/Disconnect. You can also click ‘Show Statistics’ to show you current connection speed and more information on your Broadband connection. Clicking on Basic Settings enables you to check all the Internet settings of your Broadband connection. Including the Login name (username) and password, IP address and type of connection. Clicking on ‘Test’ will perform a standard check of your Internet connection and settings. ADSL SETTINGS The ‘ADSL Settings’ section provides you with some more information about your Internet connection. These are: Multiplexing Method VPI VCI WIRELESS SETTINGS This section gives you full information regarding the Wireless connection.

Options list from: Name(SSID) virgin broadband (default) Region Europe(default) Channel 11(default) Mode g&b(default) Enable Wireless Access point Allow broadcast name Security options (None, WEP and WPA)
- hope this helps
Your router should just be that, a router. Your connection is probably like fibernet the modem is actually on the outside of the house. This may help or may not but I have a linksys wired router that works very well but you have to go to their website in order to set up the router. You may need to look through your papers and find the web address to connect to the right site.
check that you have all updates for your linksys and cable modem and the new adapter you bought since your pc is old..
if that doesn't help then try the following:
i would shut down pc, uplug router power, turn off the cable modem and give it all at least 10-20 secs.. plug the other pc in the router then start up cable modem and router.. after that, then turn your pc on and see if it recognizes...
is the adapter for a desktop to make wireless of a laptop, just curious..
