    You should not need to reset the router, unless it has been set to a non DHCP mode.

    What operating systems are the computers running?
    Have you set the sharing on them?
    Can you access the web through the router?
    From both PCs?

    I found that you have to hold the reset button for longer than 30 seconds (with the power on) for the router to reset...

Hold your reset button on the back of the router in for 10 seconds. When you get to the login, type admin for the password leave the user name blank. You can also connect with your browser, just type into your browser and you should get the login screen.

We keep losing connection to internet when playing xbox 360 live. will be playing and screen freezes up for 15 to30 seconds then kicks us from xbox live.have a router with 3 xboxs hooked up.its unsecured...

If it's unsecured, there is a possibility that other people nearby are logging on to your internet connection through your open router. The more connections through the router, the slower it becomes. And the Xbox will drop is the connection becomes too slow.

As for a better answer as to why your losing your connection, try relocating the router. Often moving it higher up will allow a better signal. Other times a wall or shelf which contain metal objects is the cause. The signal weakens as it passes through construction materials, and nearby metal objects will definitely cause signal degradation. Try moving the router, sometimes only a foot or two is sufficient.

You should definitely learn the process to secure your router. It's like connecting your computer with a network cable to all of your neighbors computers and inviting them to see what you have stored on your machine. If their computer savvy, they can even watch what your doing in real time and even activate your camera and microphone! (It's been known to happen).

Securing the router involves the use of a network key (think of this as a password). Most modern routers have the default password printed on the body of the router. Using a special program installed when you installed the router, you can access the router and set the password. For example I use a Netgear router and the program that it installs is called "Netgear Genie". You access the router through the program using the routers user name and password (default as shipped is usually "admin" for both. Then set up the router to use security. After this all of your devices you authorize to connect to this router will also need to use the same Network Key (password). It's actually an easy process. For example, after you set the security, the labtop will attempt to connect and finding the system secured, ask you to enter the "network key" or password, to allow it to connect. It should ask you to remember this password so it can connect without assistance in the future

If your still uncertain, try running the router's setup program again. Most are designed to walk you through the process quickly. Just remember that all your devices will need to use the same password, the one that is printed on the side or bottom of the router. Usually it's something silly like "wonderfulwater456879" or whatever. Good luck and be more careful with your data in the future.

I believe the main computer is online.
Check the settings on the router.
You will need to open the router set up page.
here you will see the settings of the router.

Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop.
To windows after you change setting to WEP
(XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect)
For laptop also same in case it not work then
(window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect).
Hope this will resolve your issue.

I have a different laptop and I can't seem to get this one to pick up the wireless connection. It is a wireless laptop. XP is loaded on it. My Belkin router is . We had a password on it but had to take it...

1. please chk if you might have a wireless switch to enable wireless in your laptop 2. Let your computer scan for wirelss networks and see if you can see the network in the list. 3. If you dont see it in the list, go closer to the router so the signals are better 4.If you still dont see it, try to reboot the router once. 5. If you see it and not connecting, please chk if you have a mac address filtering on the router. this is probably not letting you in now.
Hope this helps Ranjit

I could see my SSID, full signal but could not connect

I think the best thing to do is to get in touch with your VOIP provider, as they will likely provide you with free customer service on this issue, AND they are able to remote into the product, and show you the correct configuration and method for setting it.

Hope this helps!!
