There are some things you might try.
The Belkin card will come with third party software you can disable this utility by right clicking on the icon in the Taskbar and choosing "Use Windows Zero Configuration".
Then you will need to go into Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services >> Wireless Zero Configuration >> Right click and check that the service is starting automatically >> click on Start >> Apply - that should then detect your wireless network and the internet.

1. Locate the wireless-network-connections option on your computer or wireless device. 2. Select your Belkin Router from the list of available networks. You can identify your Belkin Router by locating the network name (SSID) from the card located underneath the foot of your Router. 3. Enter your network password (located on your network information card).
The notebook's wireless card needs to be configured with the SSID and encryption code before it can connect with your wireless router.

well the first thing i'd ask are you using a wireless router and second is your wireless router broadcasting, because if its not then you cant see it
find the web Address to gain access to you router ( google it ) heres an example Netopia router uses 192.168.1.254 as a default when home page opens check that wireless is broadcasting as it may be off by default.
hope this helps
When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.
It sounds like you don't have the units connected properly. Make sure you have a cable(wired) from your ethernet card on your pc connected to a wired port on the router. Then plug your router from its yellow port into the modem. Make sure your modem is connected to its Internet interface. Plug in your modem and wait 60 seconds for it to power up. Then power up the router.
At this point you should be able to access the router with the supplied installation CD. Run the setup assistant and it will define your wireless network. When you are through you should have internet access through the wired network. When you are finished you should be able to use the wireless network assuming you have the card installed correctly and the software for the card correctly installed.
Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.
What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?
Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
