A couple of items to check -- these will not fix the issue but may isolate the problem.


Turn all machines on before the test and do not turn off until after

On at least one wired computer that is working and maybe all wireless computers I want you to do the following

Click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt

In the window that opens type

ipconfig /all

press enter then record all of the following for each adapter

  • adapter
  • IP address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • one or more DNS addresses
The back in the window enter the following command using the default gateway from the wired connection (your router address)

ping (default gateway)

you will either get 4 timeouts -- the connection fails or 4 messages with elapsed times generally measured in ms or milliseconds.

What you are looking for in the above
Good entries base
x.y.x match each other if subnet mask is right
u should be unique for the network
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask ?.?.?.? assuming 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway x.y.z.? not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.1
DNS addresses ?.?.?.? not 0.0.0.0
where at least one is not zero.

Then wireless entries should be
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 0.0.0.0 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask same as wired
Default Gateway same as wired
DNS addresses same as wired
If these are wrong there is a configuration error either in the router or wireless adapters depending on how you want your network setup.


each connected adapter wired and each wireless should also
successfully ping the default gateway or router address

If the ipconfig is right and the wired config has successful pings, then every wireless adapter that fails has a wireless config issue.

If you are willing to work through this let me know and reply with information in a comment to this issue.

You may also want to address wireless security

See this response and let me know what you want to do.

Go to my computer control panel network connections and see if the setup for networking is correct DHCP should work most of the time. Check the device manager and see if your nic is properly recognized. If not you might need to install drivers for the card.

mycomputer - control panel

mycomputer - view system information - hardware - device manager

Also, sign onto your router and see if the router recognizes the computer.

It should tell you how to do this in the routers manual.

From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.

Check whether the SSID broadcast is enabled on the router.
If it is already enabled then try changing the wireless channel on the router.
for this you will need to open the set up page of the router.

Most hotspots are using b/g protocol for the widest compatibility with other hardware. Your macbook pro may not be able to connect tot he Belkin router if it's only broadcasting the N protocol. First verify which protocol the Belkin router is using. If it's broadcasting N, try changing it to use b/g and see if you can connect. I seem to recall that the earlier macbooks needed an update to be N compatible.

Belkin Wireless 5-Port Hub (F5L009) Problem


If you set the allowed IP address in the security section of the router then you must fix your computer IP to 192.168.1.101 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 the default gateway should still be 192.168.1.1 and when you get in delete the security locking out all but the one address. Good Luck

Wireless is working but computer won't connect to the internet


Remove the power cord from the router. Wait 30 seconds. Reconnect the cord. Like rebooting a balky computer.

You may also have other routers nearby on the same broadcast channel.

Occasionally cordless 2.4ghz phones may jam the wireless channels.

Chose another channel from the router setup.
