Question about Belkin Wireless-G Plus MIMO Router with USB Adapter and Geek Squad Installation

1 Answer

Bellkin G+ Mimo usb adapter - invisible

I have used a belkin usb adapter before on my HP computer and it worked fine for about 3 months. Then it broke.
Got it exchanged for the above model, would not connect - installs ok although everytime I plug it into the usb port it gives it a new number i.e usb connection 19 now. it will not find my router. it does find a neighbours connection but not mine. I have contacted the belkin helpdesk who weren't very helpful, and said to reset the router, which i did with no effect. there are other users conected into our router fine, even one using the belkin wireless G adapter.
What should i do next?

    The SSID was not being broadcast so now I can find it, I've been able to connect.



    However, even though when connected to the router, neither of 2 HP machines can use the adapter to access the internet, both using Windows XP Pro, but my laptop using XP home accesses the internet using it with no problems.



    Any ideas?

Use this tip as a check list.
Check if you set the correct SSID + Key and "connect if router is not broadcasting" set in your adapter configuration.
If you do not know Key you need to reset from Router.
If you missed SSID you can check on any PC when connected to WLAN and retrieve the name of NON BROADCASTED network

    If other HP machines are showing your SSID but they do not browse Internet the only area to check is the access list in your router.
    You do not disclose your Router model and I cannot be more helpful.
    Generally you have to connect to your router (using Lan Cable) login as Admin and check into advanced wireless setting (or security settings) see if access list is enable.
    Edit this list and you should see Mac addresses of all enabled devices.
    You can either disable the list for a test OR add your WLAN adapter MAC address.
    Sorry for the late answer let me know if problem is still pending

My beklin wireless g+mimo router will not work with my cannon pixma mx860 copier scanner printer fax. I'm setting up the printer to connect to a wireless access point using WPS. any suggestions? printer...


The printer is usually discovered by the computer, not the other way round.
Use Windows explorer, networks to discover it.
1. Make sure file and printer sharing for networks is enabled on networking part of the control panel for Windows.
2. Make sure the appropriate protocol has been set up ie TCIP and that the printer has an IP address in the range recognised by the router.
3. Make sure the printer is in the same workgroup under windows.

The wireless network is being picked up by the laptops in the house, but there is no internet connection between the modem and the router. MY router is a Belkin G Wireless


if you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Are there new drivers for teh Wireless G Plus MIMO USB adapters for windows 7?


From Belkin's Support web site: Windows 7 Product Support Information Windows 7 users:
If you are using an older Belkin Networking product, you may not have support for Windows 7 with your current software. Please visit your product specific support site to check for updated Windows 7-compatible software for your product.
Software updates will be posted as they become available. Please check back if your product is not currently supported.
Some updates may still be in the process of going through Microsoft’s official certification program. Although they have been thoroughly tested, they may present a warning message when the driver is being installed. These drivers will install on 32 bit operating systems but not on 64 bit systems, which is the normal and expected behavior.
