My current set up which works fine is 2 laptops (win 2000) and 2 desktops (win xp) all being served via a Belkin F5D8630 Pre N wireless router and Belkin wireless adaptors. Current b/band platform is BT teleworker.
My company don't encourage staff to go wireless and won't support me on the next bit...
We are about to change to BT Mobile Express and have been given new log n details. Whilst the Teleworker login has the extension .btha the Mobile Express platform has no extension...its in the form mxtwuk/username^domain name
This new log in works fine on the following kit already tried out by me today...Thompson Speedtouch 530 / Voyager 2100 / ZyXel 660H.and you've guessed it ,,it wont work on my Belkin. I've tried all the factory restore stuff and starting from scratch, and Belkin support have not found a solution yet.
If I don't get a solution by 20th Sept (Bt switch over day), I'll lose my wireless set up which will be a real pain.
Today I tried the following and had some success but not total..
connected the Belkin to the ZyXel via ethernet and was able to connect to the internet on 1 laptop & 1 desktop wirelessly.
On the other 2 machines I could see I had a wireless network connection and the machines had the right security key but they would not access the internet despite the wireless icon showing connected.
I'm now looking for some inspiration please
Re: Belkin F5D8630 wont take my new log in details
I suspect the reason this is part working part failing is that there are 2 dhcp servers on your network and maybe both routers are on the same ip address. If so then turn off dhcp on the belkin and give it a different fixed ip address before connecting it to the zyxel.

You can have itunes on many computers, all tied in to your one account. It may be that you can only be logged in to one at a time; I'm not sure.
In any case, go to itunes.com, install the software on your desktop, and then log in with your current account credentials. You'll be fine. No need to delete the account from your laptop (unless you give away or sell it -- you probably don't want people to be able to buy things using your account!).
1. you will have to designate the laptop or allow it to connect by entering it into the 3com router. 2. try connecting to the router via ethernet cord (that is connecting with a physical straight through cord) that came with the router. If connected with this then you will have to go into the router via the IP set 192.168..0.1 depending on the router ip for loging in. 2. Go to the "wireless setup" and enter your MAC address for the laptop in the permissions list in the router. Instructions on how to do this is at the manufacturers site. Step by step. 3. Do the following step if instructions not found. 1.Log into router 2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) 3.Note router name you are connecting to. 4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
check in the Belkin Wireless Monitor that the DCHP status is enabled for the desktop PC.
On the PC desktop, select Networkconnections, show existing networkconnections, select your connection, properties, scroll to the TCP/IP settings, select and check properties you should have selected "obtain IP address automatically.
Restart your PC. If you still have problems close down your PC and laptop, unplug modem from electricity, unplug router from electricity, wait 2-3 minutes, put the modem on again, put the router on again, start up your PC and then start up your laptop.
This procedure works always for me if I loose my connections. Does it solve your problem?
hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well
Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.
I just cleaned up a similar situation this weekend. Try this. Go into the control panel and create a new user id. Log off of your current user id and use the new one you created. See if the tabs are still there. If they are the virus trashed your desktop and you should create a new one.
Before you do that try scanning for viruses with the new desktop you just created. It might be that the virus exists on your old desktop and it won't go away because it is running. Checking for viruses using the new desktop can get rid of the problem.
try microsoft for updates that may fix this problem,check your network setting to be sure u have the proper network option installed.compare the seting for the computer that is working correctly to see what may be configured different
I may be able to help with this...but I need a detailed description of how you have things connected between the XP desktop, the cable, modem, the Linksys router, and the laptop. Also, is the Linksys router new?
Typically, the wan port on the wireless router connects directly to the cable modem with a cat5 network cable....then the desktop pc connects to the router...on port 1 for example...with a similar cable. Once the wireless router is set up properly, the laptop should then be able to connect using wireless.
Try this site and give the different drivers a go.
The f5d7000 driver should work if you have tried the Win 2000 driver with no luck(although WIN ME does normally use WIN 2000 drivers in some hardware cases)
