Belkin N1 Vision - unable to see networked printers
I have a Belkin N1 Vision Router pluged directly into a Desktop PC Running Windows XP Pro, I have a new Wireless Laptop running Vista Ultimate. The Laptop is connected and going to the internet fine. However I can not see the Desktop or the printers attached to the desktop. Both have the same workgroup name. I had no problem with the set up on my previous Linksys Router. Upgraded to get the N conection speed from my Laptop. The Desktop also does not see either wireless latop. (I have another laptop running Vista Home)

Are you running the autosetup program from a cd?
Click the start menu
Click the Computer icon on the right
Locate the optical drive icon under Removable Storage (it will probably be labelled Belkin)
Click the icon with the right mouse button and select Open from the list that appears
Now look for an icon labelled setup or something that has a belkin logo or something similar.
Click the icon with the right mouse button and select Run as Administrator from the list that appears. (if you cant find run as administrator then it is the wrong icon, try another.)
Does it work now?
If not, do you have a friend with a laptop that is running XP or Vista that you could borrow just to run the setup?
Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.
What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?
Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?
A couple of things:
1. Have you tried all the USB ports of your desktop PC (front and back)?
2. What is your desktop PC brand/model or at least the motherboard? and What OS please?;
3. If running Windows in the desktop PC, can you please check in your Device Manager if your USB are 2.0?
4. Are you using a USB hub or directly connected to the PC's USB port?
Hope this be of some idea/help. Pls post back with your desktop brand/model/motherboard.
Good luck and kind regards.
