How to use your laptop as a wireless router.

Start- control panel - network and internet - network and sharing center - on Task choose "set up a connection or network"- then choose wireless ad hoc (computer to computer network) - clic next then make up a name for your network and if preffered you can choose to put a password or you can just choose it to be an open network. Then click share internet connection. Now your laptop is a wireles router. Except that it is not on all the time unless you want to keep it on all the time like a wireless router.

Setting up Wireless on router and wireless security

For setting up any router you can follow the below simple steps

  1. Connect the router with a power cable and switch on the poser, reset the router with its reset button normally you can find the reset button on the rear side of the router for 30 seconds and then switch off and on the power
  2. After reset conenct the router to any laptop or desktop with a cable and also connect the router to the modem or the internet service provider cable
  3. after all connection lights will come on go to right hand side corner of the computer and check if the network connection is showing connected
  4. Once you are connected with a wired connection open a page of internet explorer and type in router addess normally it will be or and then type the username and password default usernames and passwords can be found in router manual.
  5. Once the router setup page is open you can confugure the router easily without the CD setup.
  6. The advantage is you do not have to run the setup CD and you can also do wirless settings for your wireless laptops or devices
  7. Go to the wirless settings page and you can select the wireless on and off or you can setup a wireless security to avoide your router with unauthorized acess
  8. I would recomend always keep the wireless network secured if you are using the router for a home or small office as there can be people who will be using your bandwidth for free without your permission
  9. one more tip i would like to give whenever any kind of setup is required on the router do it by a wired connection only and not thought a wireless pc or laptop as it can disconnect you from the router in between of your setup
  10. WEP is the kind of wireless security which is easy to setup and remember and most wireless cards of laptops and computers support it
All the best with your wireless router configuration and security setup

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 w/ window xp. I show my wireless connection on the signal is excellent but when i click internet explorer its says its connect to internet - i dont have working offline clicked...

Try connecting to another wireless connection... if it connects to another connection and you get to the internet, then it is something with your wireless router or modem. Your PC can "see" a wireless connection, so it is NOT PC hardware.

It sounds like you can connect to the router, but cannot go through the router to get to the internet. Probably a simple issue with your modem or router. Try power cycling the modem, and power cycling the router. Then restart your PC and try connecting again.

If all that fails, try installing Mozilla Firefox and see if that will get out to the internet. It may be a problem with Internet Explorer.

Uninstall the Belkin software and see if it helps. If not, then you will have to do a soft reinstall of the OS over the curent install with your Packard Bell Windows Cd, or a fresh install. (Make sure you make a back if you are doing a fresh install.

If you have made a restore point earlier, you can try to restore the system to a point before you installed the Belkin router. This way you do not need to do a fresh Windows install. But you will lose any data you stored since the time of that restore point.
