Unable to configure

I am unable to connect to the router to configure it. My connection within windows shows that i am connected to the router ans if I do and Ipconfig /all I have an IP address. but when I type in the address that the user manual says to I get a time out error. I am also unable to ping the router. I have reset the router back to the factory default settings and that has not helped either. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

After downloading the disk, my computer is unable to connect to the Belkin router.

To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Unable to connect to the internet with a new loptop.

is your wifi broadcasting non-secured signal? try protecting your wireless network with a password. In your case, it might be caused by incompatible protocol like 802.11 a/b/g and if your encryption method is incompatible with your router.

Setup your encryption to WAP not WAP2 in your router interface (http;// and configure your Vista to connect to your network using that encryption.

6) Once added, right click on Wireless-G Router (name varies) and select configure. Follow the onscreen instructions to configure your router. (You can find your router pin by following steps 1-2 and selecting Wi-Fi Protected Set up.)
7) Once completed, attempt to connect to the internet via wireless router.

1. First of all connect your PC Directly with Modem & check if you're able to go online or not.

2. If No , then contact your ISP.

3. If yes ,Disconnect CAT5 cable coming out of Modem from PC & connect into WAN port (on rear panel you'll find it) of Linksys WRT300N Router , After that on rear panel you'll find small hole with a Reset button inside it. Use needle or pen to press it quiet hard for 1 minutes continuosly, This'll restore all default settings.
