Question about Belkin (F5D7011) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
I just got a belkin adater and it connects to my network and has a ip address but it wont connect to the dns server and when it searches for a signal it says limeted or no connectivity while it says my network has good strength
Would be helpful if I had the Wireless router brand and model # and adapter model number # so I can give you specific directions.
The IP address of the adapter has to match the NETWORKS range of IPs. Some manufactures default to 192.168.1.x where others it's 192.168.0.x. Notice the 1 and 0. On rare occassions and I haven't seen this in a while it could be in the 10.0x.x range.
So check your adapter settings. You can set the adapter in one of rwo ways, Dynamic (router gives the IP address) or Static (you assign a specific addess).
I will take it for granted you are using Windows XP.
Dynamic (steps to get to adapter in order)
Go to Control panel/Network Connections/Wireless Network Connection/right click/Properties/ at this point a smaller box should open with the heading "Wireless Network Connection Properties". We will be working in this box now. Double Click "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)". A new box comes up, Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties. You should see IP information. Click the box "Obtain an IP Address Automatically". This will allow the Router to assign the IP address (Dynamically). Make sure to click the "OK" buttons.
For Static I would need the info I requested at the beginning AND who you ISP is. The ISP assigns the DNS to your network. I have a few generic ones but it's best to use thiers.
Static setting invi9lves going to the same place as the Dynamic setting put you use the Set IP address instead of Obtaining.
FYI-if you have a printer on the network (meaning it has it's own wireless), it is best to set it statically to make sure it always has the same IP address.
This is one of a few answers that will solve the problem.

What is the OS?
What IP address do you get?
Do you have a 3d party firewall?
