Re: wireless conection

Ok if you log into the router you can make adjustments in there.If you're unsure of it's IP address then you can find it by going to start then to run. A box should appear where you type in cmd Once you press enter on your keyboard after typing that you should see DOS appear, Black backround with white text. Once you're in there type this as you see it ipconfig then press enter on your keyboard. You should see an IP address next to default gateway. Grab a pen and write those numbers down. It may even be Once you've written down those numbers type in exit in that same box and it should disappear. Those numbers that you wrote down should then be typed into the address bar once you open up your browser. This should take you to your router. If it asks for a password and user name, you should type in the username bit admin and the password will be either admin, password or there won't be a password so you'd leave that bit blank and then press enter on your keyboard. If none of these work then you'll have to reset the router by holding in the reset button at the back of the router for about 30 seconds. This should take it back to the factory default settings. Once you've done that turn off the router for about 10 seconds and turn it back on. Once you've done that then retype that IP address that you wrote down earlier. The reset may have reset the IP address so you may have to go back to start and do the cmd thing again and the ipconfig thing in DOS again. If the router IP address has changed then you'll see it next to the default gateway text. Then do the 192.whatever in the address bar once you've opened up your browser. Then type in admin in the username bit and either password, admin or leave it blank. Then you can reconfgure your router in the basic setup. Once you've done that, click on the word wireless and put the dot in the wpa psk section. That way you can type your own password in there but it must consist of 8 characters or more. Also make sure that you have your router set to either g or b or both so that if you add a wireless g card to another computer on your network if you have one as the cards also come in wireless b. Once you apply or save your settings, the router should restart or acknowledge the settings. Then go back to your laptop and change the password when the wireless signal has been recognised and put in the new password you created. I hope this sorts out your problem for you.

My router does not show wireless signal just wired

Your computer cannot detect the Belkin if the wireless card in the computer has not been configured with the Belkin wireless settings.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Wap 54g asking for a network key? what is that? I have a house with a gite when guests come they want to use Wifi and i bought this to extend the signal but they cannot use it as its asking for a key

Contact your ISP provider how to get the WEP key...

Otherwise, just reset your router. there's a reset button at the back. When scanning for netwotk choose linksys with the one that has the best signal (4-5 bars) then connect. You won't be asked for any WEP key anymore.

Hope it helps! ^_^
