I have recently bought a Belkin Wireless Router and I am unable to connect to the Internet on my laptop. What do I need to do to connect my laptop to the internet using the Belkin Wireless router?

your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.

Belkin Wireless N router/Embarq 660 modem/No internet

Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.

Belkin Modem Router not connecting to desktop

The wireless security on your router might be enabled.

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type "". Then press the "Enter" key.

2. It will prompt for a password to access the Router’s Web-Based Advanced User Interface. By default the password is blank.

3. Go to Security, then Wireless.
- Check the wireless security settings, this should match the settings on your wireless computer.

4. On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Router not working unless

Several questions --

How is this wired?

Comming from the Cable (tv) or a phone wire (DSL) from a phone jack you are connected to a modem/whatever supplied by your service provider. Then an ethernet cable (looks like a fat phone cable with extra wide connectors (8 metal connectors instead of 2 or 4) connects the modem/whatever to your router's WAN port (the separate port not one of the block of 4) and another ethernet cable connects the one of the outer's Lan ports (probably block of 4) to the desktop computer and your laptop operates wirelessly. Is this correct? If not explain houw this is wired, please. For consistency please start at the cable or phone wire.

Does your desktop do anything to log into the internet with a userid and password maybe?

If so who is your internet service provider?

We may need to change the login process and get it into the router and off the desktop.

Consider securing the wireless connection if you have not done so your neighbors MAY be able to utilize your wireless connection and your bandwidth if you do not.


Secondly if I understand you you have 4 computers using the router to access the modem connected to your Internet Service Provider; three using wires and one using the wireless. First have youneed to confirm that your internet service provider allows multiple devices to share the connection (which is what your router is trying to do). If so do you have to logon / login to your ISP to access the internet? (This login may be hidden from you in the modem provided by the ISP) Research if it is required to have your router logon to the ISP instead of either one of the computers or the modem in order to support multiple users. If that is the case you will need to determine if your router is capable of performing the logon for you and configure the necessary devices appropriately.

I can possibly help with the above but will need to know your ISP, and the manufacturer and model for your router and wireless card(s) to assist in configuring the components. The manufacturer and model information will also provide a basis for securing the wireless network if desired.
