Access the preferred network settings (if you are using the Windows wireless setup - right click on the wireless icon + view available wireless networks + preferred networks) for your machine and edit the listing for your wireless network, you'll need to uncheck the box that says something to the effect of "an authentication key is provided for me" and enter your security key in the boxes provided.

If it still fails - you may want to remove your network from the preferred listing and add it manually, making sure that the authentication is turned off as described and with your security key entered twice.

A Belkin router doesn't usually force the utilities page on you. I would advise checking your start page - you might have set it to your router's homepage by accident.

Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop.
To windows after you change setting to WEP
(XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect)
For laptop also same in case it not work then
(window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect).
Hope this will resolve your issue.

Laptop driver needed


Hello,

You dont need a driver for the wireless router. If your laptop can recieve wireless signal(from a wireless router) all you need is an active internet connection, configure the laptop and router to distribute the internet, you're good to go.

If your laptop cant recieve a wireless signal from a wireless router then you might need a USB Wifi Dongle.

There are a number of factors that can cause the signal of your access point to deteriorate and the performance of your network to fall under par. Practically any appliance that operates on the same frequency level (2.4 GHz) as 802.11b or 802.11g can cause interference with your wireless network. Be sure to keep cordless phones, microwaves and other electrical equipment at least 1m away from the access point. Try changing channels on the access point and test it out on one of the clients. To change the radio channel on the access point login to the configuration (usually a web based interface) and go to the Wireless Settings (will vary depending on vendor) section, select a different channel and save settings. On the client, go to Device Manager, right click your wireless network adapter and go to Properties. In the advanced tab select the Channel Property and change the Value to the same number as the one you chose on the Access Point. Disable and then re-enable the wireless connection. Also you can try by select the speed manually 802.11b or 11Mbps on your laptop wireless properties.

Configuring WRT54G


there are many ways to setup/configure a wireless router. the easiest way for me is to plug your modem to the router, (even though unplugged, there should be a wireless network signal on your device that has a wifi but no internet connection) once connected, plug the modem to the wireless router then reset it, wait a few seconds then you'll get an unsecured network with internet access on it. usually, the only use for the cd is to make you configure it easier like putting a password on it etc.

Most home router has an IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. If you dad's laptop can connect to the router just fine, then it's a problem with your linux laptop. Can you see other wireless networks on your laptop?
