    Connect an ethernet cable between the modem and the bottom port on the router.

    Do you have a copy of the manual, and the software CD that came with the router?

    Connect an ethernet cable from the laptop, to one of the top 4 ports on the router.

    If you have a copy off the CD, then follow the instructions for running the software. If not, then go to the Belkin website and download the manual, and you can manually set-up the router. I will also try to upload the manual here after I submit this comment.

    Reply back if you need further instruction.

    Were you able to get the router going?

    I will be happy to give you further instruction and walk you through setup.

Check the IP address on the Vista wireless network connection. Make sure that there is not static IP address on the wireless connection. That could be one of the reason.

Router not seeing internet connection

If you are on cable internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Access the router's setup page using your main PC, under SETUP tab, there's a sub-tab called MAC Address Clone. Enable that and click on "Clone My PC's MAC" then click on Save Settings. Power cycle the router and the modem. You should be online after that.

No Active Internet Connection

If you want to use the wireless portion of your router, you would need a wireless adapter installed on your desktop. If you are getting internet on your desktop then this means that your wired connection is fine to the router is fine. The WMP54G adapter will work with your router, however if you are not planning on connecting to the internet wirelessly through the router then there is no need to purchase the adapter. Hope that this helps you out.

After reading your concern i think you have to manually configure your router, have you tried that? if not i suggest you to try that.

the steps mention below will help you to configure the router manually :

first check is your internet is working when you connect your computer wired with your modem given by your internet service provider, if yes, lets move on to the second step, connect your router and their should be four lights on the router

A. POWER : looks like a circle and a line in it.
B. WIRELESS : looks like a radio sending signals
C. INTERNET : looks like i with a circle underneath it
D. and number light : that shows one of your computer is connected with a wire to the router.

once its done now open the internet explorer on your wired computer
type in you can type
, it will prompt you for user name and password, the user name will be 'admin' and password will be 'password', make sure you type it in small case
On the left hand side their is blue coloum, their you need to click on SETUP WIZARD the very first option,
It says the router can autodetect the internet connection, their select YES and click on NEXT option and it shows the screen below :

a. does your internet cinnection require login, Seclect NO
b. make sure you check all the options that i have circled in above screen shot and click on apply it comes with the same page again
c. now click on ROUTER STATUS under the Heading called maintainence and check do you have any ip address under the internet port if YES then you have your wired connection working now, check that by opening another internet explorer, if its still not working

Then upgrade teh firmware from the link mention below :

above mention is the master link for all WPN824v2 routers select the version and upgrade the firmware, and steps are mention on the same link as well.

Once its done follow the same steps to make you wired connection working. Once its done, Lets move on to the wireless connection

a. click on the wireless settings under the heading of setup

check out another screen shot below :

a. Change Name SSID : name of your network that you want to have
b. CHANNEL : Change to 11 and if uts 11 change it to 06
c. Mode : change to G&b
d. Sceurity : Select WEP
e. Key1 ; type any 10 digit number or you can type 1020304050, as mention above as the password for your wireless network

Till now we have set up the wired connection and wireless connection on router and now lets connect your wireless computer with it

you will able to see your wireless network name on your computer, simply select it and it will prompt you for password that will be your 10 digit number you punch in Key1

connect with it and you are ready to go with your wired and wireless connection

I hope above mention will resolve your concern.....

Connecting to xbox live failing

The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
