Hi I just had the same problem. I started with installing the provided software from Belkin into my Vista Laptop than
unplugged all wires than pluggin in the modem and powered it on than rewired the router and powered it on. The process wasnt done their though. The router needed configuration now I am not even close to somebody who knows how to do this heck i didnt even know it needed to be done so i phoned the help like 18002belkin *2263 and they where able to walk me through it we where doing things like turning on the automatic ip address and setting the dns address to 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 sorry i couldn't walk you through but best of luck to ya because I am now surfing from my living room. Happy New Year

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) . 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.
type user name as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then go to dhcp then enable dhcp. Also check wireless is enabled.
If you want to secure your wi fi thne configure your router as WEP in WAN settings then add wep key it is your password to connect wi fi.
Then save settings and restart the router.
Let me know if you need more assistanse. Thanks.
Goto network places in xp and in the left panel there is a phrase "Enable UpnP Devices" Click it. let windows go through the installation
now you may have to refresh but you will see the router. click on it and log in (password may be admin no password or something like that)
goto Wireless. setup as deezired.
same as xp but no need to Enable UpnP devices.
Press the reset button on the router and goto its config page like in the prior steps. Set-up as deezired.
If wireless adapter on the laptop is fairly old, you may need to update the drivers for the wireless adapter. Some older wireless adapters are not capable of properly communicating with WPA devices. Typically a driver update of the laptop resolves the issue. If not, try another wifi adapter and verify it is not the OS or laptop itself.
Some device may not have Vista drivers or the drivers are still beta and they dont work always perfectly. Check which kind of wireless adapter is present on your laptop from device manager on XP. Then try downloading Vista drivers for your wireless adapter form wireless card factory website, and install them on Vista.
