Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I'm trying to set-up a wireless connection on my laptop - have followed the installation guide but when it says to connect my modem to the wireless router I'm stuck as the cable and connections on my modem are USB but the Belkin Router only has connections for 'ethernet' type cables. Do I have a cable missing? Is there something I need to do differently or an adaptor I need to buy?
I have everything set up from the model to the router but, when the program starts to run is says that the internet is not connected.

It would seem that:
Your modem has only USB output;
Your Router has only Ethernet input with WiFi & 4 LAN port outputs; and
You want your laptop to be access the Internet through wireless connection.
There are USB to Ethernet converter/adapter, an example is shown here.
There are on the otherhand, comparable modems to what you have that provides both a USB and an Ethernet output such as the ProLink H9000 shown here .
Perhaps your best course of action is give your provider first a call and see if you can require them to replace your modem with another model/version, one that has an Ethernet output or a combination.
Alternately, a way can be configured if you have a desktop that has both a USB and Ethernet that we can set up as Gateway (but this is the long method).
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
