Click start and type cmd when it appears on the list above where you typed it, Right click on it and select run as administrator. When the box opens for the command window type SFC /scannow and hit the enter key. IT will repair all the problem software that may have been changed by any applications that you installed after you reinstalled windows. If that does not help then we need to check the event viewer.

Hi i am getting an error message clinkn connect can't discover router. please check the cable connection and make sure the router is powered on

This could be a cable fault.You can buy simple cable checkers at aPC store.If this isn't faulty,try uninstalling and then reinstalling the disc that came with it or going to device manager clicking on modems and seeing if your router is there if it is right click on to it and click update driver.RESTART THE COMPUTER.
If this didn't fix it,try unistalling the modem from device manager restart the computer and the windows system will try to find a driver for the modem.Or you could try searching for the driver in browse when you update the driver.IT GETS COMPLICATED I KNOW I'VE DONE IT THOUSANDS OF TIMES.WINDOWS 7 IS A GOOD OPERATING SYSTEM THAT FINDS DRIVERS AUTOMATICALLY FOR YOU.

You can set up wireless security on the router.
If you have Windows 7 computer, you can use WPA or WPA2 security on the router.
It is better if you set up WPA. that will work with windows Vista anbd windows XP also.
Is there any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Do not change any wireless settings on the router with the wireless computer.

check the IP address of the computer.

I'm trying to install the Belkin router and I get an error

If the cable is too long from the MAIN phone socket you won't get the signal to your router.You set the router as close as poss to the MAIN phone socket i.e. 2 to 5meters away.Then use a wireless adapter connected in your desktop USB socket.Use the adapter disc to set it up.This receives the signal from your router and installs it into the USB port.

Socket error 11004 !!!!

Hey...I tell you a fact. Outlook is really a nice software for email management but still i am sad that its poor in handling Internet Connections. Actually, all data transfer takes place using SOCKET networking and Outlook is not nicely programmed to work with various kind of internet connections.

So, for the solution of this I suggest you to use MS Office's Outlook which is far better than Window's default OUTLOOK EXPRESS. And surely your emails will be processed in better way then.

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you...

socket error 11004 is totally related to absence of required parameters of a internet dependent application. It can be caused by firewall/security settings. So you may review your settings and also reset or disable the firewall. Please post the details of application that you are using that causes socket error 11004?
