    I have a Belkin Wireless G (purchased in 2007)...It has stopped working with my cpu... when I try to connect to the internet. I have disconnected the DSL connection and connection from my modem and connected the modem directly into my PC from the Belkin... DSL connection to internet works just fine. When I reconnect PC to Belkin, then Belkin to Modem... the wireless works fine with my laptop, but I can NOT connect to the internet???

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

On at least one wired computer that is working and one wireless computers if possible 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
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 may be 192.168.0.u
SubNet Mask ?.?.?.? assuming
Default Gateway x.y.z.? not may be
DNS addresses ?.?.?.? not
where at least one is not zero.
Then wireless entries should be
Wired IP address x.y.z.u not 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
First you must choose a common encryption strategy for your home network. (Yes I am assuming Home Network)
In most consumer routers you activate encryption on the wireless services of the router. After doing so you must also actiate encryption services on the wireless adapters that communicate with the wireless router. The names of the encryption services in the wireless router and wireless adapter are WPA and WEP. It is important to assure all wireless adapters to connect to the wireless router can handle the encryption chosen because the router will only perform one. There are options within each technique such as the number of bits of the keys -- the longer the better but only as long as the shortest device can support. WPA is preferable to WEP because it was designed to correct weaknesses in the WEP standard and implementation. However if there is even a single device to be connected that cannot do WPA you must do WEP or replace the device WPA in home systems often have a couple of other attribute being WPA-PSK and algorithm of TKIP -- which again every wireless adapter and the wireless router/access point must support.
To procede further in a sane manner you need to identify all wireless devices that will participate in your wireless network and determine their capablities for encryption. This is generally done searching manufacturer websites under support looking for user guides and firmware updates. Sometimes a devices capabilities in the manual require firmware updates to be true for the device. Once that is figured out the standards for your network can be set and the actual implementation can proceed. You will probably want a working wired computer to maintain access to the outside world for assistance if anything goes wrong. You also want to track your changes and know how to back things out incase things become too difficult.
If you have any additional questions or would like to a review of your plan or assistance determining a plan gather up the appropriate manufacturer's names and models and I will assist as time permits.

If the computer is able to see wireless signals but is unable to connect, it is most likely an issue with the card, which unfortunately is internal. It could just be the driver - go to, punch in your service tag and download the wireless driver for your PC and install it. If that does not work, reboot your wireless router. If that still does not work, it's the hardware and cheapest option is to a get USB wifi adapter.

do you have an internal wireless adapter? Is the switch switched to on? Are you close enough to the wireless router. Do you have the right security code selected for connection to router? I would try resetting router and modem if the above is not the problem.

You could try using a wireless adapter that connects through usb but the connection is not as strong. Otherwise I would try to buy an internal wireless card which is just installed into a PCI slot on your motherboard.

did you install the modem software and the router software? you may also want to use the network wizard to see what it tells you. are you wired or wireless at the pc? if a laptop, did you install the wireless connection (either a usb or internal)?

here is how to set up the network. netgear is the same way.

to set upa network

there is no "earthnet" connection. it is an ethernet connection. it looks like a phone cable but has larger ends than a phone connector. the router is connected to the computer via an ethernet cable if it needs to be hardwired to a ethernet port or internal ethernet card. a wireless connection only needs to be an add-on internal card w/antenna or a usb connector hub (it looks like a usb flash memory stick)

here is how it's done. netgear has the same type setup.

Wireles conection problem

I've run into this issue with USB wireless network cards from DLink, Linksys, and Netgear. For me, the issue was with the USB ports on the PC and not having enough power for the device, the connection would stay live for a random amount of time and then all of a sudden it would die (same thing would happen when resuming from hibernation or standby). I added a PCI card with a powered USB hub in it and it solved my problem.

Hope this info helps!
