Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!

I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Hi, we have a Belkin wireless router and the 'world' light has disappeared. We have been in contact with our service provider and all seems to be ok on that side. I understand there is a lifetime warranty...

Hi Nenia, could please give us the model number of the wireless router again from Belkin.
Second , are you trying to connect to the wireless router, using a wire or using the wirless only.

Belkin 54 Wireless Internet Connection Problems


If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.

Good Luck.

Belkin wireless security

plug a laptop straight into the router with a cable. then open an internet browser and type in
type in the username and password. the default will be admin for username and password for password. then close the browser and unplug the cable. it might detect wireless internet after a few seconds. if it doesn't, it is possible that you have a PC set up as the internet gateway for the laptops or something, so when you introduce encryption the laptops can't get access. in which case you should go to your wireless icon on the laptop and click that and open the connection list. double click on the wap secured connection and try to connect. it should ask for a username and password, which you have secured the wireless encryption with. enter that and it should connect to the gateway.
dunno if this helps, good luck

Belkin router problem

VISTA and wireless don't go well together. First, I would disable your firewall, you can turn it on later when everything works and play with the settings, second use the hex value instead of the password key when logging into the wireless device, third try it both with windows managing the connection and with the vendor software. Some wireless prefer one or the other depending on their compatibility with the Vista virus.
