I have a comtrend ADSL2+Ethernet Router hooked to my desktop Pc and a G-Wireless Router made by Belkin.According to the tech I should be able to connect these two to use my Laptops, but any way I've tried...


You dont need a Belkin Disk to set up - this can be done manually you can get a manual from this site http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/product/list/q/routers/ select G in the first dropdown and then your model - theres two to choose from and then then the version
you have a choice - you could change the comtrend router to just use the modem - bridged mode - they have a few different routers see here http://www.comtrend.com/links/i$residential-adsl2-modem-router$product.htm so not sure which one you have if you can bridge to just use the modem then connect tothe Belkin and all PCs should connect to the Belkin
OR you can connect two routers together Leave the comtrend router set as it is -
Set the IP address of belkin router to same subnet as the comtrend. Depending on the DHCP range of the comtrend router - set the IP outside this range - so if comtrend is set to give an ip of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.100 - set the belkin to 192.168.0.254 Disable the DHCP in the belkin.
Connect the comtrend LAN to one of the Belkin LAN ports - you may need to use a crossover cable. On the belkin the WAN port will be left unconnected

If you want to connect to the wireless network you can connect one of the 4 ports to the ADSL modem, this will allow the device to switch between the Wireless network and the wired network. You could also purchase an access points instead of the router but the result is the same, is just that you won't use the routing capability of your Wireless router.

I have a Comtrend ADSL2 + router and i want to know how to configure to get it to download faster


hi welcome to fixya! when it comes to internet, ADSL2 + router has really a big factor when in-terms of connections, because it helps to boost more speed. But the problem is it has nothing to do with the downloads I mean if your looking for a faster downloads it needs a high-speed bandwidth connection meaning it depends on the service provider where you attached to. And they have many types of a high-speed connection like: 512kbps, 1mbps, T1, 3mbps and etc.  Just select on this type of connection from your ADSL provider and they would love to teach you the right configuration to have a faster download.
