It sounds like you may have some issues with the laptop.
Try reinstalling the drivers for the network card. Also, make sure your computer is free of spyware and viruses.

Try some of these programs:
Adaware
Spybot Search and Destroy
Malwarebytes

all are free and very good.

make sure you are only connected hardwired and not wireless and hardwired.

Hi,

Ping depends on the server network and not the configuration of the laptop.If the ping varies, you need to check the network configuration.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

You need to attach the Belkin 54g wireless router to the DSL/cable modem. Then have all the computers connect wirelessly to the belkin. They should then be able to get out.

HTTP stops working, but other protocols (SMTP, ping) are fine


Hi Friend,
You need to just open the port number (80 and 443) for HTTP and HTTPS in the router.And then try to connect you will be able to connect.

Hi i have been trying to set a password for my belkin router but cannot log on line to the ip address


The address fro your Belkin 54G wireless router setup should be: http://192.168.2.1/
I would bypass the WiFi link/security and connect your PC/Laptop to be used for configuring the router via the Ethernet cable connection plug in Port 1 of the router.
If you do not have the password, you will need to reset the router to 'factory default' by using a small reset button on the back: you need a pen to push it down. Hold it down for about 10 seconds and it will put the router to factory default settings.
You will then need to reconfigure the router using the Belkins setup CD that came with the router (or download it before hand from Belkins support site): this will normally set it up automatically for you.
Hope it helps!

I pluged the belkin 54g into the modem were the internet comes from and 1 wire to the computer


hello,
typical setup: make sure everything is switched OFF, then, you will plug one side of the wire to the "WAN" port on your belkin and the other side of the same wire will go in the "LAN" port on the cable/DSL modem/device.
then you would take another wire and this time you will plug one side of the wire in the "LAN" port on your belkin router and the other side of the wire into your desktop/laptop computer.
1.first power on the cable/DSL modem, wait 20 - 30 seconds for the modem to go in ready state. 2. power on the belkin and wait another 15- 20 seconds for it to become ready. 3. finally power up your PC and everything should be good to go.
Note: if router is new and came with setup CD run that in the computer and follow instructions.

let me know if there are any issues.
Hope this helps, please vote.

regards,
Amar Sondhi

Belkin 54g Wireless connection problem.


This is more of an explanation then a solution, but to best explain what to do I have to first explain why this is happening. When you add security to a wireless router or ap you add extra envelopes to the packets of info being transferred, adding encryption to that makes it much slower because the ap has to encode all packets coming to you and un-encode all packets being sent to the Internet. In our time this happens very quickly, but in computer time I just described a lifetime. In addition if your signal is not 100% you might have packet loss "more slow down". Now the answer, in your ap setup pages you can setup wireless security, set this to Mac address authenication and add the mac addresses of all the network cards that have access to this ap. This is by far the fastest methiod of secure data transfer.

Hope this was some help...

As long as the computer you are connecting has the capability to connect in some form, wireless or wired, you will not have to run the web utility again. However, if you are currently connecting your laptop wirelessly, and you are connecting your other computer with a wired connection, you must make sure that the wired network is not disabled.
