I added a belkin network usb hub to allow whole house to print etc through wireless connection. It installed correctly and found the connected printer and external drive. It is constantly connected and turn on but when the computer is initially turned on it fires up as normal opens to the desktop, the belkin network page comes on automatically showing the printer and external drive are connected then the computer automatically restarts itself before i can do anything and continues to repeat the above process. If I unplug the hub it works as normal. any ideas how I can solve this would be appreciated.

there is a button on the bt hub with the wireless sign on it, press it to allow the usb device to connect. You onlt need to to do this once its a security measure to stop anyone logging into your wireless network. Also it will only stay allowable for connections for a short period of time. But as i have said you only need to do it once to allow the new computer to connect.
it's a wireless access point;configure your imacs pc with any pivate ip address like 192.168.1.1/192.168.1.2 etc and don't forget to installed ethernet driver and wireless daemon is on select the authenication protocols as stated in the access point;hope it connect
If you set the allowed IP address in the security section of the router then you must fix your computer IP to 192.168.1.101 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 the default gateway should still be 192.168.1.1 and when you get in delete the security locking out all but the one address. Good Luck
What you are saying will not work . The J5780 only connects with a USB. It does not have a J45 connection. So to play with the "built in network server" would do nothing. You would have to have some way to convert the USB to a J45 so he could hook it to his Wireless Router. His only alternative is to hook it to another computer that is used as a Wireless Slave that is shared or to get a print server. Hower, Belkin does make a wireless USB Hub that converts 5 USB's to J45 and can be hooked to you Wireless Router. It also has a built in Print Server. You can take this device and instead of hooking it J45 to the Router you can hook it to a linksys Bridge and now the USB HUB from Belkin becomes completely wireless. And has a Print server to boot! The model number are Belkin "Network USB Hub" and the Linksys WET54G. Since the Hub connects to the USB devices and then converts them to a J45, to link to a network you can hook it to the llinksys device and convert it to a wireless network usb hub. It also has a print server built in. It works. I own the same printer all in one and if you search on the internet you can pick up both devices on the cheap.
Normally the USB hub is design to connect to the device that doesn't consume electricity like handy drive,MP3 player.So in your case the multifunctional printer, I think this one really need a direct connection to your PC,instead of going through USB hub.Try to move some other device to connect to this hub and connect your printer directly to PC..due to many restriction with printer like electricity,port,etc...
when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.
This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order.
1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless)
2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router.
3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled.
4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings.
This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router.
