Wireless modem not connecting to everything on the network

I recently bought a new laptop to support the home computer and decided to buy a 'Belkin ADSL2+Modem with Wireless G Plus MIMO router' to network them together. The network worked fine untill i decided to also add an xbox360 to the network through the microsoft wireless adapter. All the computers -xbox included- can find the wireless network all the time but when trying to connect either the laptop or the xbox can only connect to the internet when the other is allready on. The problem seems to switch between the two depending on which one was last connected to the internet. Resetting the router allows them to connect again but only untill they are turned off. Belkin tech support dont know what is cuasing this. Can anyone else help.

This sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's and x box an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser that DHCP is enabled, also go to your wireless network card and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok and close window. Do the same with the Xbox in the network settings and make sure that automatically obtain ip address is highlighted and automatic DNS is set. Lastly make sure non of the pc's network setup is set in a way that other pc's connect to the internet through this computer type set up, they should all be set up using the network wizard using the 'this computer connects to the internet through a gateway' setup, which is your router, but if your laptop is Vista, then everything should have set up automatically when a connection to your router was found. Lokk in the routers DHCP clients and look to see if all your pc's and the Xbox is listed and given IP addresses.

I bought belkin g wireless modem ruter but they didn't give me CD . How can i install this and how can i use my wireless ruter please. Thank you.

Power-off your cable-modem (or DSL-modem).
Use an Ethernet cable to connect from the modem to the WAN port on your router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect from one LAN port on your router to the network-port on your computer (desktop/laptop).
Turn the modem on.
Turn the router on.
Turn the computer on.
Click Start
Click Run
Type CMD
Press Enter
Press Enter
Look for output like:
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 1234.678.0.1
Start Internet Explorer
Type http://1234.678.0.1
to access the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the Network Setup Wizard.
Run the Wireless Networking Setup Wizard,
to pick an SSID, an encryption-level (use 'WPA')
and to pick a network-password.
Now, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer, and try using the wireless-adapter inside your computer.

Belkin Wireless Router F5D8233-4 shotty connection missing wireless

The problem may be that your router needs a firmware update. I work with routers everyday and have found that even out of the box they do not have the lastest firmware. Ditto for linksys.

You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Connection problem

don't shout at me, but many of the older compaq laptops did not come with a wireless nic installed, and the ones that did sometimes did not support G let alone N.

If able you need to check that the Wireless NIC if installed/avaliable supports your wireless router or most likly the otherway round.

firstly I would try removing any USB wireless adapters that you may have in use from one of your other computers and try it in the compaq, if sucessful you know that it is not your setup of your home network at fault.

Cannot sustain network or internet connection

It is quite possible that your issue is due to the DHCP function of your router. I would check the DHCP settings and the lease time that is set. Its quite possible that the lease time is running out and its having difficulty renewing a new IP.

Belkin wireless router installation with a laptop that has an internal modem

Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?

Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router

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.
