Question about Belkin (F5D7230-4) Router (587009)
I have cable modem connected to my desktop with XP installed on it. Internet was working fine in that time. How I bought laptop and Belkin wireless G router because I want to have internet on my laptop (with Vista on it) in other part of the house. What I can see now is that every time I connect to the network with my laptop I lose internet connection (after a few minutes of surfing sometimes few seconds) and on the connection icon it says just local only, in the same time I don't have internet connection on my desktop too. When I turn off my laptop and then turn off both modem and router and then turn them on I got internet again, sometimes it works again after just running the Belkin setup program in my browser and cloning mac address, setting connection type to dynamic IP address... everything like it says in setup guide. Laptop have integrated on it Intel pro wireless n card if this information helps.
If you have your desktop connected to your cable modem, you must not have a router. You need to purchase a router to use both computers

Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
