    We want the adapter out of there so we can have the slot back. That is also the broadband card slot and cannot be used if the Belkin device in there. Thank you for such a quick response.

    Now , this depends whether your more bothered about using the adapter or just having the slot back.



    Try gripping the adapter firmly and wiggling it in the slot from side to side.



    Also , look for a release lever . Im not too experienced with macs but pc's have a release slot that locks the card into the slot unless you flick the release lever then pull the card out of the socket as you pull the release.

If your more bothered about getting the slot back and not too bothered about the adaptor , you can obviously get a pair of pliers on each end and yank it out that way

Did you look for a release lever , could you find one?

Quick responses are my number 1 priority!

I have Parker Vision USB1500Wireless PC LAN adaper. It just keeps searching for the network, but i know the network is working because i have a belkin PC Card adapter and it connects.


In the router that you are trying to connect to do you know if it has an Allowed Mac Address section.

Depending on how the router is configured you may need to set the mac address of your wireless adapter to be allower on your network.

To find out the mac if its not on the adapter.

Go to Run - CMD. Type Ipconfig /all

The mac address is called the physical address and should be 12 characters with - inbetween.

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

I have a belkin router asdl wireless how to secure the connection


Hello,

The easiest way is to turn on the mac restriction feature and only allow the macs from the machines that you want to have access.

Since I didn't see the model of router listed, you will need to refer to the manual for exact instructions on enabling that feature.

You can get the mac addresses from the machines that you want to have access to the router in xp by click Start > Run > type cmd.exe and press enter. Then type ipconfig /all and look for the physical address of your adapter. It should be in the format of XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX. Once you get that information you can allow it in your router.

This will give you basic security on your router.

Thanks
