Hello i am having probelms with my Belkin g basic router it has wireless and it works but when i connect it to my computer it does not it says it can't find or something but if i plug in my other box that...
It's sounds like you're getting your cords mixed up. The modem (the box from your company that provides internet) needs it's power cord plugged in, a phone cord or a cable cord plugged in, and an ethernet (LAN) cord plugged into it. The power cord will plug into the wall obviously, the phone cord or cable cord will be coming out of the wall obviously, but the Ethernet (LAN) cord will plug into your computer or a router. A router in your case. So the Ethernet cord from your modem (box that came from you company that provides internet) will plug into the router in the specific slot that says Internet or Modem connection. Now you need another Ethernet cord to go from your router to your computer. Try to plug the cord that goes from the router to the computer into the 4 different ports on the router until one of them works, you'll have to give it about a min to check each one. If that doesn't fix it then you need to make sure your LAN card is being read correctly and installed correctly, best way to do this is to go to Start > Control Panel > Device Manager and look at Network Adapters. If there is a Red X next to a conenction, right+click the conenction and tell it to enable, or update drivers.
