Problems with wireless connections/router (Belkin)

Hi, can anyone help?

                              After attempting to setup a wirless network i am experiencing problems when trying to maintain a connection. Often the network will not appear on the "view wireless network" list and when it does it very often will not connect. On the rare occasion when i am able to connect, the Speed/Mbps seems unreasonably low and it is never very long before the connection is lost. I am using cable modem. I've tried restarting the router and modem (turning off and waiting 5mins), ocassionally clicking on repair causes the connection to appear. I've got a feeling my next-door-neighbour has the same router (unsecured), are we both using the same channel? Any advice at all would be helpful as it's driving us all up the wall!!! Thanks Patty

I have a cable modem and setup a belkin N150 wireless router...says wirless router is connected but cable modem is not? therefore am not getting out to internet...can anyone help?

Unplug your cable modem for 30 minutes. Also turn off the router. After 30 minutes, plug in ONLY the cable modem. Wait about 2 minutes and then plug the router back in.

Cannot connect to belkin N1 wireless router

It seems like your router is configured once without any issues. Ignore that error message if you are connected with the internet. The setup couldnt find the Network adapter or the router because it is know more a factory default settings. It is been configured already

Can't connect with 2nd computer...

1st.  What brand and model # of your router? 2. The router cd should be run only on the computer u have connected to the router with a network cable. Your vista laptop. Is it connected with to the router with a cable? 3. If so, it will be the one used to configure your router for wireless setup. When you ran the setup it should have gone thru Wireless Setup. It will ask you for an SSID. That is a name you will give your wirless network. It can be anything you want. just remember it.  It will also ask you to setup security for your wireless network. follow the instructions to setup a password. write it down. This is an important step so anyone cannot just logon to your wireless signal an start using ur internet connection or gain access to your computers. 4. when u setup your dongle on your kids computer it will search for wireless signals in the area. you will look for the one u setup in the previeous step. you will select it and it should ask you for the passkey you setup. once connected you will have access to the internet.
Think of your router as a private radio station and the wireless usb dongle is the radio. The only way your computers can tune to it is using the dongle and if you know the name of the station (your SSID) and the passkey.
