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.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.

If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router. Click here for step by step instructions
No. All routers will support up to 254 devices or computers. 1. Check that the third computer is set to automatically get a IP address (called DHCP). 2. Check to make sure there are blinking lights on the back of the computer where the network cable connects. 3. network speed. your computer should be set to auto detect speed. You may have to edit the properties of your network adapter to set it this way.
If this is about a wireless setup, wireless can be touchy and sometimes difficult to get connected. Types of wireless - older computers may not be able to connect to newer wireless routers for example it may use 802.11 B, and your router is set to only use G.
Its also possible that your setup is such that your ISP provides Internet Addresses, and they only give you two. If so, it will require you to configure your router so that all of the client computer are on the LAN.

Hello There, are there any wireless computers that detects your router? If there is, most of the laptop computers has a built-in on/off (toggle) switch on the side to enable or disable the wireless card on your computer. Make sure it is "ON" then check if it will detect the wireless connection.
If it is a desktop, try to reboot the computer then check again. If none of the computers can detect your router, make sure that the wireless light on the router is lit up. You may also try changing the channel on the router.
If this laptop has a wireless switch, make sure it's on. Did you get the wireless hub? Wireless is controlled by the wireless zero service, which should turn on automatically when your adapter is detected. You can turn it on manually in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services
