    I am having the same problem with my laptop not connecting after setting up my WPN824 v2.

    It sees the router but hooks up only giving me limited connectivity. This means of course no internet service. The signal strength indicates excelent. I don't understand the problem. I did check for possible connection on another near by network. No problem with that. I beleive the connection at the desktop is good from what I can see..

Windows, if that's what you're using, may be connecting to a different router than yours. Verify that you're connecting to your access point.

Also, make sure there is a good connection between the router and your cable or dsl modem.

Finally, you can try connecting your computer to the router using an ethernet cable. That will at least let you verify that the computer and router work together, and you can configure the router and so forth. If connecting with a wire succeeds, that narrows the problem down to the wireless network connection.

Here's the manual. Troubleshooting is near the end, but it doesn't look like your specific problem is listed...

Laptop died and now I cant connect my desktop with the belkin usb adapter. It just keeps saying aquiring network address.

Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

Laptop cannot aquire network address from wireless router

If you connect the computer to the router , it works.
That means the wired connection is OK.
Open the set up page of the router check the wireless settings of the router.
I think your network is secured and you are not typing the correct network key.
just open the router set up and check the wireless settings .
Make sure that the DHCP server on the router is enabled

The software that came with the router will not

The software disk just walks you through the setup process and is not really needed. The router has a web interface and you configure it from a web browser. The only tricky part is to determine the default IP address of the unit and connect your PC to the unit to get to the web interface.

Cannot aquire ip address from wireless router

Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it. Good Luck.

Have you configured your wireless adapter with same WPA key that you had set on the wireless router?
Do you detect other Wireless routers in your area and are they using the same wireless channel as your router?
If so change the wireless channel on your wireless to an unused wireless channel to avoid interference with other wireless routers.

Cant Aquire IP Address Wirelessly

try this... connect the laptop directly to the router using a cable. get into the router interface and disable the wep security. Once it is disabled try connecting the laptop. your computer will ask you that network is not secured and ask if you want to connect anyway. just connect your laptop without the WEP key, if it connects, just go ahead and enable the security again. hope this helps.
