    I have two laptops and neither can connect to the Belkin Sky router, my dell inspiron 1501 knows there is a router but can not aquire network address. Its claiming invalid IP address, its set to 0.0.0.0 which obviously isnt right. However my other laptop is claiming it cant find a wireless connection. On my Dell laptop its showing full connection with the green bars yet still cant connect to the IP gateway. Ive had nothing but bother with this modem that im probably going to get rid of my sky subscription as they have been absolutly no help what so ever. Ive never had a problem with my BT router that i have in another property.

In general the Wan port of the router gets connected to the modem (box supplied by your internet service provider or ISP) where the computer used to connect and the computer connects to the switch portion of the router which often has 4 or more ports. The router has configuration options that must be set to comply with your internet service providers (ISPs) requirements. These can often be found on his support web site. If you can provide the link to the website I can assist with the search. Otherwise I will need the name of the ISP. If this ISP is cable related like Road Runner I will need the associated cable provider. I will also may need to know the country, city and state in which you are located as some ISPs have geographic differences in equipment. Depending on what that information determines I may also need to know the Manufacturer and Model of the Modem -- probably the box supplied by your ISP. It would also be helpful to know if you got the router used or new. Used routers may have been configured by their previous owner and require additional changes to new routers with factory default settings.

All of the above information may lead to the determination that maybe we must enter a static IP address into the router, maybe we need to provide for PPPoE login for the router, maybe we need to configure the modem to allow the router to perform the PPPoE login, and several other such items. This is probably not a one reply solution.

To provide detailed information concerning that I will need to know the model number of your Belkin Router.

Sound like the least road of Pain is to Return it and write down the new code you need to know.

There may be other solutions, but is support is not helping, get another brand. It should not be that hard.
I might suggest Linksys / Cisco

I cant get my belkin router to work with sky broadband


You may need to ask Sky Broadband with the type of connection you may need to set up to the router. It could be a dynamic IP or static IP. Whatever settings your ISP requires, then it must be configured in your router.

Hope this helps!

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?


I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.
