Most routers require either an Ethernet or USB connection to initially set them up. If it's a wireless router, it may have an IP address for setup over the network. I'd think you'd want an Ethernet connection to the router in any event for fastest throughput. A board Ethernet adapter is pretty cheap if your computer doesn't have one.

How to quickly install and use your Belkin wireless G router 1. Step 1
Position your Belkin wireless G router.

Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.

2. Step 2
Connect all the devices.

Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.

3. Step 3
Turn on your modem, router, and PC.

Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.

4. Step 4
Verify lights are on for your devices.

Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.

5. Step 5
Install and configure software.

Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure  other settings.

I need to find my private networks security key by going online the router web based setup page. I can not use the wireless connection until i find the security key.


You need to connect to the router by an Ethernet cable since you cannot connect over wireless without a key. Turn off or disable your radio, then connect an Ethernet cable between the computer and one of the LAN ports on the router. If your computer's Ethernet adapter is configured to get an automatic IP address, you should be able to access the router at this point.

Can't connect my gaming adapter to my wireless network


If the ethernet light -( )- is off, flip the X - II switch to its other setting.

If the wireless light is off, click on the channel button, it should me IN. If still cannot connect, then you will need to setup the wireless settings of the gaming adapter.

First, you need to know the wireless settings on your wireless router or access point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and wireless security settings.

Connect the gaming adapter to the router using an ethernet cable. Flip the switch on the adapter to straight through (II).

Then insert the Setup CD of the WGA11B to your computer. Click on the Setup button once the wizard is up. It will then show you the current settings, so just click next.

It will ask you for the password of the adapter, just type admin.

Make sure that Obtain IP address automatically is selected, then click next.

On the Profile configuration, select Internet for the mode.

Then enter the SSID and select WEP if wireless security is enabled on the wireless router. Type the passphrase of the WEP key. Then click No to complete the configuration.

Connect the gaming adapter back to the PS2.

Good luck!

Connecting 2wire router with desktop pc and laptop


hi! try to check the settings on your 2wire modem, you can do this by going to gateway.2wire.net, run the system setup wizard, when you get to the ppp authentication page, check the username & password on it, it should be the one that you setup for your ISP account. as for the wireless on the desktop, it depends on the brand of the wireless adapter, be sure you have installed the drivers for this adapter. you may need to go to the client utility manager or the wireless adapter shortcut/icon on your computer screen then configure it to "see" the 2wire network. make sure wireless encryption is turned on in the 2wire modem's MDC, you can do this by going to homeportal/management, or go to gateway.2wire.net/mdc.
