Re: getting my router to work at its peak...
I suppose the new laptop has Vista on it. therefore find out the settings for the new provider and connect to the router with ethernet cable. type in the browser address bar the address of the router interface: 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 usually. put in the password (usually default is admin)and copy the settings in the corresponding fields, usually there's a wizard for this. the make sure to go in the wireless settings and set the wireless to enabled. find an option like DHCP server and make sure it's enabled. you can enter a passcode for your wireless, but it's not required, you can also set it to unsafe mode... the you should be able to go to: start>control panel>network center>connect to. and connect to the wireless network the you are probably good and should be surfing the web

If there is several computers that cannot connect wireless to the internet, you have to check out you wireless router. First of all, you should try to unplug the power for about 10 seconds, then plug it back in and check if it is working. If not, you should try to connect a computer directly to the wireless router, if possible, with a network cable. If that is working, then it is something wrong with the wireless settings, perhaps interference. If that is not working, you should try to connect directly to the internet with a cable, use the cable that is connected to your wireless router. Plug it into the computer instead of to the wireless router. If that is working, there is probably something wrong with your wireless router, and you should get a new one or deliver it to repairing. If the direct connection dont work, you probably would need to call your ISP (internet service provider). I hope this would be of any help for you, and dont be afraid to ask if you need more information.
Has your modem been hard reset recently? if so, it may require that you bridge the modem out to work with the router- ESP. if you use Verizon DSL. If so, contact your ISP, and ask for assistance in bridging out the modem.
1. check your wireless adapter TCP/IP settings if its set into "Obtain as IP address Automatically". 2. if the settings is set as Automatic and your not getting IP address then select "Use the following IP Address" 3. use IP address followed to your router address like if192.168.0.1 in router type192.168.0.2or192.168.0.3just check the next address IP in your network. 4. after typing subnet IP will automatically set 5. type the router IP address as your default gateway 6. click OK to save your new settings
You should be aware of a class action lawsuit that Belkin and the complaintent settled recently. The lawsuit was filed complaining that certain Belkin routers did not obtain optimal speeds as advertised.
Belkin has agreed to provide affected customers a discount program to purchase a new router. You will need to search elsewheres for the details.
Have you plugged a computer into the router if possible using an ethernet connection? Did it successfully access the internet?
If not the ISP (modem?) side of your router is probably configured incorrectly for your ISP
If that works wireless routers and adapters operate different bands I know of A, B, G and N. Do both your router and adapter card have at least one of those bands in common?
At any time have you attempted on the laptop to connect with the router? When connecting do you see your router by name? has your router been set to a unique name so you aren't confused seeing one of your neighbor's routers?
Did you enable encryption (WEP or WPA) in either the router or the wireless adapter and not enable it in the other?
Do you have MAC filtering on in you router and forgot to enter the wireless cards MAC accress?
