Re: Wireless driver can not read my wireless router
If you're having trouble with a router, it most likely has nothing to do with your laptop at all. If there is a problem with your laptop's wireless adapter, you may be able to find updated wireless drivers through the laptop manufacturer.
Please keep in mind that a wireless router and wireless adapter are completely different. The router is external and relays the signal from your modem (the internet) to your connected PCs. The adapter is in your laptop and sends/receives information from wireless routers such as yours.

I see you set Windows back to defaults as you mentioned and now your Router will not go Wireless.
First Restoring Windows Back to Factory Defaults will not reset your Routers Settings to Defaults together with Windows.
So Most Probably the issue is since you restored windows back to factory defaults you may need to install the Wireless Driver again on the Machine / Computer to make your computers wireless card work again and be able to detect and connect to your Belkin Router.
try a difefernt device that can connect wireless to your Router or maybe a different Laptop to see if the Belkin is working fine wireless.
If any other Laptop will not detect the Belkin then try turning the Wireless Radio ON again in the Router Settings of Belkin.
But I suggest to check all your system drivers if installed for it to be wireless capable again on the issue, Restoring Windows back to Default will not change anything in the Belkin Router. I believe this is a Driver issue on the Wireless card of your Computer.
You mentioned the system does work if plugged in Wired right, check your drivers install every driver that needs to be installed from the Manufacturer Website of your Computer for proper and compatible drivers.
Have a nice day.
Have you set any wireless security (WPA or WEP key) in the router? If you have, this information should be entered in the connection on the laptop
If not, have you checked that the laptop and router are talking to one another (the wireless connection should appear when the laptop finds new networks to join)
Obvious question.. but have you installed the wireless driver to the laptop and have you enabled wireless connectivity on the laptop (either a switch on the laptop of more usually the FN key and one of the F buttons?
check whether driver for wireless is installed properly in the laptop .To check it navigate the device manager and see device wireless is installed. The wireless may be sometimes disabled ensure it is enabled. Then try to search for the wireless signal and connect to it. Ensure correct ip address is received automatically in laptop by using command ipconfig/all in command prompt check router dhcp address range.
The laptop/computer's wireless card may not have the latest wireless card driver installed or it is not enabled and working. Check Device Manager to see if is is working and enabled. I suggest you install the latest wireless card driver. Next check the wireless card configuration, it needs to have the wireless router's settings, ie SSID and encryption etc. For instructions on securing and configuring the wireless router and wireless card please click in this link :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
Log in to your router ( http://192.168.1.1 ) and go to the Wireless settings. Check your parameters, security modes, passwords. Using this info, try again to get to your wireless signal (your wireless on the laptop) should show up and let you log in. If the wireless function is not found, you need to install drivers for it onto the new hard drive. This ought to take care of the problem!
Hello! It is possible to install it without the CD< but not easily >You will need to, On a separate computer, Go to Linksys.com and download the drivers, then just burn them to a CD< or Put them on a flash drive, and install it on the laptop. Unless the laptop has a Ethernet port, then just connected the computer to the linksys router VIA Ethernet to download the drivers.
make sure that the wireless part of the router is enabled by logging in to the router's page. check if the wireless light is on. try to customize the wireless settings like changing the wireless name (ssid) and the wireless channel to prevent interferences.
make sure that the wireless adapter/card of the laptop is also installed properly.
hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern
