The Belkin Wireless G router works as a second modem (middleman) for my laptop but it won't work as a wireless router. All the little lights light up when I first connect but after a few minutes the "internet" light goes out and I can't figure out why.

If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your <b>Belkin</b> wireless access point/router, the <b>easiest</b> and<b> fastest</b> way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.<br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Reset your router:</b><b><br /></b><br />
<li><b>Unplug</b> your <i>DSL/Cable</i> <b>modem</b> from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now</li></ul><br /><br />Next

<li>With the power still on the router,<b> Press</b> and<b> hold</b> (with a pin/pen tip) the <b>RESET</b> button for 10 seconds.</li>
<li><b>Release</b> the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot</li></ul><br /><br />almost done....

How do you have your connection set up? Normally, your modem connects to the router, and router to computers, this is how yours is set up? Since your router is wireless-capable, just make sure that your laptop has its wireless turned on and you have the router's "Wireless" set up, name (SSID) is done, security method chosen. I like WEP-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity, keeping in mind that all logins to your network will need this passcode as well.
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
As you ave the modem in bridge mode and also it works ine with wired connection just follow the instruction below for wireless
1.Login in to the router - > wireless settings
2.Configure your wireless using SSID and WEP and save settings
3.Laptop : Using windows wireless client configure the client using the same SSID ,WEP as configured in the router(view available wireless network in wireless properties)
(by default OEM wirelesss client takes over the wireless configuration in branded pc.to disable it and use windows wireless client..control panel ->administrative tools -> services -> enabl2 wireless zero configuration)
14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seq..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
Try the manual method.connect router to pc with ethernet cable
1.logon to 192.168.0.1
2.Connection type ; PPPOE
3.type in your username@ISp and pass
5.Configure wireless setting(SSID,Wep)
Configure pc with the same SSID and WEP
uplug the ethernet cable and check if your are able t connect wireless
First step of solution would be performing Reset. Press and hold the reset button about 30 seconds and release. Check again. If you need customized settings just type 192.168.2.1 in your browser and get into settings.
If issue persist please post for further troubleshooting.
i would suggest returning the router and/or purchase a modem router, as it does away with all the connection problems and the need to click dial to connect as a modem router is always on and does not require a main pc to be on.
It will also probably be cheaper than buying a seperate modem.
