Wps54g wireless failed to connect but works with the ethernet cable Both the print server and the Router are linksys (router= wrt54g) I have all the cds and everything that came with them but nothing...

It sounds like you are using a router, then using a router in series with it. The two networks will most likely not be seen between computers hooked on different routers, although you should be able to get to the Internet. If you need more ports, get a switch instead of a second router. To make the printer work with what you have, use the wireless printer on the same network (that is, from the same router.) If you need the second router for more area coverage, get an extender.

Can't find the instructions to hook up second computer, we have two computers and the reason for the dx was to hook both of them up now I find I have no instructions, pls help!

Assuming that the router has one 'WAN' (or 'Internet') port, and more than one 'LAN' (or 'Network') port, just connect an Ethernet cable from the 2nd LAN port to the network-port on the second computer.

Both the router and the second computer should auto-configure themselves, giving you an Internet connection, without any fuss.

Network is hooked up correctly but when I try to get internet on the wireless laptop it says to unplug router for 10 seconds and try again. I did this and it still doesn't work. What else can I do?

Open the control panel ... delete the connection in yout network folder. Turn off the modem. Turn off the router. wait ... wait ... turn on the modem ... wait ... wait ... turn on the router ... wait ... wait ... turn on your computer wait ... wait ... run the connection wizard to discover the router. Windows should take if from there with a little help from you.

Trying to set up a second computer for wireless

What wireless mode is you router operating in? Does it support the cards on your other systems?

Do you have mac address control enabled?

Try disabling security temporarily to see if you can connect; your wireless connection may not be setup to authenticate properly.

Belkin N router reads everything but the computer.

If your router was working before, and suddenly stopped working, then you probably need to reset it.
Unplug the router from power, also unplug all network cables from it.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug power back in, followed by network cables.
Wait some more seconds while the router restarts.
Only the Power light and the Status light should be solid.
All others in use must be blinking, which means they are in use.

Try connecting to the internet with cable first, then try wireless.

It should work.

Cannot get a second computer on my secure wireless network

Have you set the properties on the second computer to match the security expected by the router? Since one computer works I would compare the settings for the network connection and set the second computer to the same.
