I am a truck driver, on the road a lot. We have a Belkins router which has been working fine, until we switched to satellite tv, instead of cable. Now we are told that the IPU address is the same on both systems, & that is why our computers are not working. What is an easy fix for this dilemma??? thnx, wayne wallace

First you need to verify that what kind of Internet connection you have from the satellite and what you need to do on the router so that it can communicate with the modem like MAC address cloning or changing the LAN IP Address. On the basis of that we will need to reconfigure the router back as it might happen due to a power outage or small network glitch the router might have lost the settings stored on it.
The address fro your Belkin 54G wireless router setup should be:
I would bypass the WiFi link/security and connect your PC/Laptop to be used for configuring the router via the Ethernet cable connection plug in Port 1 of the router.
If you do not have the password, you will need to reset the router to 'factory default' by using a small reset button on the back: you need a pen to push it down. Hold it down for about 10 seconds and it will put the router to factory default settings.
You will then need to reconfigure the router using the Belkins setup CD that came with the router (or download it before hand from Belkins support site): this will normally set it up automatically for you.
Hope it helps!
* there are 2 different types of reset one is hard reset and the other soft one
* the hard reset u need a paper clip press the reset hole for more than one minute -- u need to feel the click when u press the reset hole --- if not then the reset button is not functioning
* the soft reset is u need to login inside router using 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of ur browser and click on restore factory settings which is under UTILITIES on the left side
* if still doesnt work u need to update the firmware in belkin.com/support
If I understand correctly you want to use the router as a gateway for an sat. receiver.
This Netgear router can be connected to devices that has TCP/IP connections (RJ45) ports or wireless IEEE 803.11 b/g, and that can get the IP address statically or from DHCP (router). Toshiba can do that and therefore it is working fine. If sat.receiver is not device that can behave as a PC (processor etc.) it can not get IP address and router can not "see" that device, therefore router can not let "something invisible" to connect to the internet.
You don't need software for the router. Is your wireless encrypted or open? Just view avaiable networks with your xp machine and choose your network to connect to. If you do have an encrypted signal use the vista machine and type in the ip address to the router in your browser window. I think belkins router ip is 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.0.1 Hope this helps, let me know
You need to start from beginning.
Clear all temp internet files and run this programme
Start>Run ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.
Get into the routers settings(probably 192.168.2.1) and ensure in the Lan settings that 'DHCP Server' is on and wireless is enabled.(you might need to be connected by RJ45 lan cable first)
If it's a 125mbps router change settings to 54mbps to try that speed first(especially as your wireless cards will be 54 mbps)
look in Mac address Filtering is off.
Look in the DHCP Client list and see if your pc's were allocated ip addresses, if so it should allow an internet connection.
Go to both your pc's wireless cards properties and under TCP/IP properties ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked.
Restart both pc's and the router, disconnect cable and try wirelessly
