Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
My Belkin Router has worked without error until recently. I have both a desktop and laptop the laptop will only work (internet) when desktop is turned on.
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.
