Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?
If you are unable to connect your laptop wireless to your <b>Belkin</b> wireless access point/router, the <b>easiest</b> and<b> fastest</b> way to get going is to reset your router to the factory defaults. This will make your router work like the day you bought it.<br /><br /><br /><br /><b>Reset your router:</b><b><br /></b><br />
<li><b>Unplug</b> your <i>DSL/Cable</i> <b>modem</b> from power (not your access point/router) Leave this unplugged for now</li></ul><br /><br />Next
<li>On the rear of your<b> Belkin router </b>you will find a small RESET button</li>
<li>With the power still on the router,<b> Press</b> and<b> hold</b> (with a pin/pen tip) the <b>RESET</b> button for 10 seconds.</li>
<li><b>Release</b> the RESET button a wait 15 seconds for the router to reboot</li></ul><br /><br />almost done....

<li><b>Plug</b> your DSL/Cable <b>modem</b> back in to <b>power</b></li>
<li><b>Wait </b>1 minute for the modem to boot up</li>

Try to unplug power on back of your modem. Let the phone line plugged in. Wait 10 seconds and plug the power back.
Wait about 1 minute and try it with your computer. This procedure will reconnect using a new IP address on your internet service provider.
It should work if you don't have a router. If you have a router attached to your modem, unplug power on both then plug your modem first and wait 1 min. Then plug back your router and wait 1 min. Try your internet connection after doing it. If you still don't have connection, try to restart your computer.
the router has gone through the restore it will then begin the
reboot. When the reboot completes plug the power back into your modem.
addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the
Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.
This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.
If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can
restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease
time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.
In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the
equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some
devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging
the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down
connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.
Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle
through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking
the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.
Power down your modem and router by unplugging them. Wait 30 seconds. Plug your modem back in and let it cycle through. Wait until it's fully connected. Plug the router in and let it cycle through. That should fix your problem.
1) With direct connect with modem, check the IP address and default gateway. (I came across such a modem, it gave default gateway as 192.168.1.254) I also had the doubt of configuring as a dynamic connection But it won't work! Contact your ISP to completely bridge the modem and configure the dsl modem as PPPoE connection with correct username and password. Finally connect the modem to router and do a complete network power cycle, i.e.: Unplug power from router 1st, then power from modem, unplug the telephone line and now do the exact reverse process... Plug back the tel. cable, then power to modem... now WAIT for lights on modem to come back, then plug in the power to router. This will surely work.
You might try this:
1 power off or unplug your cable or DSL Modem.
2 Power off your router
3 waiti about 30 seconds,
4 plug in your cable/DSL modem
5 wait until the modem boots up (all lights except activity should be on)
6 power up your router.
Can you be a little more specific. What do you mean by "INTERNET PLUG IN"? Are you referring to the cable connecting your laptop to the router? The router to the modem? Or the modem to the internet (cable or DSL)?
