What is the reason for the botton that has the letters WPS beneath the green light?

Its to allow you to connect wireless devices to your router without having to be able to know how to do it

  1. PIN Method, in which a PIN (Personal Identification Number) has to be read from either a sticker on the new wireless client device (STA) or a display, if there is one, and entered at the "representant" of the Network, either the wireless access point (AP) or a Registrar of the Network, cf below the Protocol Architecture.
    This is the mandatory baseline model; every Wi-Fi Protected Setup certified product must support it.
  2. PBC Method, in which the user simply has to push a button, either an actual or virtual one, on both the AP (or a Registrar of the Network) and the new wireless client device (STA).
    Support of this model is mandatory for APs and optional for STAs

Hoe can i connect my ipone to wiifi on my belkin router

Wi-Fi settings determine whether iPhone uses local Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet.
Turn Wi-Fi on: Choose Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on.
Join a Wi-Fi network: Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPhone detects networks in range, then select a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join (networks that require a password appear with a lock icon).
Once you join a Wi-Fi network manually, iPhone automatically joins it whenever the network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, iPhone joins the one last used. When iPhone is joined to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon in the status bar at the top of the screen shows signal strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the signal. Set iPhone to ask if you want to join a new network: Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. Join a closed Wi-Fi network: To join a Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks, choose Wi-Fi > Other, then enter the network name. If the network requires a password, tap Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. You can type it manually by login onto the Belkin's network page using the browser and by copying the static and dynamic IP address.

I purchased a new IPOD and I can not access the wifi from my Linksys wireless router.. I reset my Linksys router to try to solve this problem. And at first when the light was amber I was able to have...

Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

WRT54G2 Wireless Connection Disconnects

First thing, do you live far away from others or do you live in an apartment? These days, there are so many people using that band that I'm surprised it works for anyone. It is especially true if this is the sort of place where everyone has a microwave, because they are in the same band and they leak, just a little.
Second, does your AP has a frequency that is unique? There is a "survey" button that tells you who else is using wi-fi in the area and on what frequency. You should use your own frequency, away from others, if you can.
Finally, do you have a good strong signal? If you do not, your throughput will never be as good or reliable. Using an aftermarket antenna MAY help.
Finally, it could be an issue in the Mac. Check driver levels for your wi-fi hardware, insure you have the latest. Search for wi-fi problems using your model number, or give Apple a call to see if there are known problems. Make sure you have the latest firmware on your Macbook too.
Now, I think you are telling me that you have tried running the same aps when you were wired in to your AP rather than using it by Wi-Fi and the same aps used in the same way, don't fail. That is the first thing I'd try. And if that was the case, aps work when wired and fail when you use wi-fi, I'd do the above.
(And you do not live near an airport (radar), and none of your neighbors are hams that do high frequency experimentation.)
The wi-fi devices are FCC Part 15 devices, using low powered transmissions on frequency bands that are actually licensed to other services. For example, some of the channels are on a ham band. It is possible that a Ham radio operator would do high power transmissions on a frequency shared with wi-fi and knock hundreds of APs out of service for a short time. Part of the rules that part 15 devices live by is that since they are unlicensed guests, the people who are actually licensed for the bands have priority and you are the one who has to deal with the interference.
But we have no indication, other than the intermittent nature of the problem, that you have an interference problem at all. And it seems more traffic related than time related, although the other rule of network failures is that you notice the failures that happen while you are using the network and you don't see the ones that happen when you are not using the net - could be failing all the time and you would never see the failures - other than the ones that happened while you were using the network heavily.
There are techs who own spectrum analyzers who can make a better guess at this sort of thing than I can, but my guess is that you do not want to pay them for this answer.
Good Luck!
