You will need to open a port on the router first. Maybe 8080 once you get that set you will type the WAN ip and the port number. It will look like this: : 8080
it will then ask for a username and password.

Belkin wireless network fails to connect with toshiba blu ray

Unplug the router for 10 seconds and again plug in. Sometimes a simple restart can resolve network problems on a Belkin router.

Disable the "Windows Firewall," which might be preventing an outgoing connection. Click the "Start" menu, type "Windows Firewall" and press "Enter." Click "Turn Windows Firewall on or off." Click on "Off." Click "OK."

Make sure the router is connected properly to your modem with an Ethernet cable via the router's "WAN" port on the back.

Follow the simple steps to set up the Belkin wireless router

Blue light come on when plugged into laptop but does not show on laptop

this drive is mainly a Network drive. To use it with the USB, if you have a PC, you will need drivers that can be downloaded from LaCie. If you have a MAC, there are no way to use the drive with USB.
If you have a Router at home, connect the drive to it with an Ethernet cable and then use the LaCie Network Assistant to access it. It is easier.

I've locked the wifi connection so only my laptop can access it how do i open it to make it free for everyone around the wifi router?

Just "undo" what you did to "lock" it.
Then, run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard",
and pick an SSID and a password,
and tell the password *ONLY* to your friends/family,
since you don't want somebody sitting in their car, outside your home,
to "steal" your Internet access (for "hacking" purposes).

Disk will not power down. Has vanished from my computer, but router IDs it.

Well according to LaCie's support when the power button is failing to work and the fan becoming inconsistent it is due to the power supply failing.

This is because the OS controls the power button and if it cannot boot fully because of a power problem, then functions of the drive are turned off, including the power button.

They are going to send me a new one.

For best results, you should connect it directly to the other router with an ethernet cable.
