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

There may be a conflict.  Have you configured your router?? Make it a Shared , Secured, WEP connection. Configure your router by going to:

    Depending on your computer and router, you may automatically be able
    to connect wirelessly to yuor new router to begin configuration.
    However, it may be necessary to patch into the router with a nearby
    computer via an Ethernet cable. Whichever method you use, you'll need
    to reboot the computer.

    To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and typehttp://www.

    You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. type in admin and leave the password filed blank.

    A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router's password. Pick something you can remember.

    will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as
    to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users
    will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a
    DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address.
    If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the
    machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your
    ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the
    router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that

    If you
    opted for Static IP Addresses, you will be brought to a screen that you
    will need to contact the ISP to get IP numbers from.

    will next need to setup the wireless connection. You will change the
    default SSID to match the workgroup ID of your LAN computers. The SSID
    and the Workgroup IDs must match. You will also be able to configure
    encryption at this point. If you have the ability to use the newer WPA
    encryption, you will want to use this. But we don't recommend setting
    up encryption untill you confirm that all PCs are able to connect

    Lastly, you will be asked to reboot the router.

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.

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

Belkin Router not allowing an Internet connection

It's not unheard of for a router to fail. When you connected the computer to the Modem, did you use the same cable that was connected to the router? Does your internet connection require a username and password? If so, is that configured in your modem, or the router? If not in the modem it must be the router.
