This is a request before i buy a Belkin wireless router. How many computers can be accessed via the router.I am a member of a computer group which has about 12 computers, can we connect them all to the router via a usb2 adapter?
Does it really have to be belkin? wel, if it has to be belkin, then the answer is yes. You can connect the rest wired to the router(meaning conencted with a wire but you can also have them all wireless) another suggestion to you is a Linksys wireless router. It can accomodate 4 wired computers and more than 12 wireless coomputers using wireless USB adapters. But other cpmputers have already built in adpaters. just make sure you check on the Pc's device manager.

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to 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
If your modem/router has a USB connectivity, you can connect it via USB. Else you will have to buy an Ethernet PCI Card, which wont cost you much.
I hope this solves your problem. Good Luck !
Kindly Accept my Solution.
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).
My problem is not being able to work wirelessly with my laptop. My answers to your questions are underlined(I've used your questions to someone elses problem)
One possible issue is your router's wireless radio is not enabled- the light on the router is lite on the symbol for wireless
or the wireless radio is not enabled on the computer you are attempting to connect to the router with - there is a switch on the front of this machine which is switched to wireless.
There are many other possibilities as well. That is why we need you to carefully answer EACH ONE of the following questions.
(01) Which of the following is your router? -->> F5D7230-4 (Wireless G Router)
(03) Are ANY of the computers connected to your Belkin router able to access the Internet? YES
(04) If there are other computers connected to the router that are able to access the Internet, how are they connected? (in each case, please) only this machine is connected but it is by.... (b) wired (using an Ethernet patch cable connected between the router and the computer)
(05) What is the manufacturer and model number of the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
HP Pavilion dv2500
(06) What operating system is installed on the computer you are attempting to access the Internet via the router on?
This machine is operating on Vista but the internet access I have is with talktalk
(07) Have you ever successfully connected (wirelessly) to the Internet from the computer you are attempting to wirelessly access the Internet through your Belkin router on? NO
I hope you don't mind me using your questions to someone else, I thought you might be able to figure out what I'm doing wrong. I am connected to the internet but don't seem to be able to work wirelessly. Lorraine
-- what is the exact model number of your access point and router? -- what is the ip address of your access point and router? -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- Is your computer directly connected to the router? -- Do you have a wireless computer? what is the model number of the wireless adapter
if you want to configure your access point with your router you may try the ff:
Step 1: Connect the Ethernet port of the access point to one of the Ethernet ports of the router Step 2: Make sure the power adapter is plugged to an available power outlet Step 3: Check if the corresponding LEDs on the access point are lit Step 4: After connecting the devices together, configure the access point’s wireless settings Step 5: Open the access point’s web-based setup page Step 6: When the access point’s web-based setup page opens, change the SSID, Channel, and Wireless Security.
You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order.
1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless)
2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router.
3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled.
4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings.
This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router.
