Recently bought a Belkin NIMO router to go with an ACER laptop. I can access some pages on the internet but not all of them. I have checked the settings on my wired computer against my laptop to make sure they match but to no avail. Sometimes they connect and sometimes they don't. Has anybody any ideas? One of the areas that keeps popping up is something to do with DNS and the other thing I wondered is whether I needed to install any drivers on the machine. I am rapidly running out of ideas.

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password
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
Have you ran one at a time to see if each one can connect by itself this would rule out a problem with one of your laptops.if you try this let me know. Thanks.You can call support at Belkin an they might be able to walk you through the setup.
Connect your laptop to the router with a network cable and type 192.168.2.1 into your internet browser address field. You should get the router maintenance page, which gives you access to the encryption and security functions.
Please come back with a comment if that does not work.
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router. Click here for step by step instructions
Because of you getting a new computer, you need to reaccess your router's administrative options to make sure that it pulls the correct IP address and all your computers that are connected use the correct password encryption. For details follow the instructions below:
your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) . 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.
If you are connected straight from the modem, your router will not have internet access, only if your modem is connected to the router you will be able to go online wireless. connect your modem to the router nad router to the desktop, so that you can access both wired and wireless connection
