Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

Wireless connection problem

I have a wireless internet connection; therefore I do not have a modem. I have a cable that connects my desk top into my wireless network provider. I was told by my internet provider to plug the ethernet cable to my enthernet outlet on my desk top and then plug in in to the modem connection on my router. This is the message I get when I attempt to set up my router:

Step 1 of 6: Checking settings on computer and router
The setup assistant was able to connect to the router via any of the network adapters on this compute, ans also not after you checked your hardward connections.

Any help you can offer.
thanks

    So, in reading this entry, it is correct to say that the cable modem, router, and desktop have to be all be connected in order for this to work?? How does it become wireless if all are conntected??? Mine is working with the 3 connected but I had the understanding that the router could be in another room, away from the desktop, and could still get a connection.

Hello:

Ok...I am a bit confused. You must have a modem to connect to the internet...whether you are broadband (cable/DSL/wireless), Dial-up or T-1 or higher (TSU/DSU).

This is how it should run once you are sure you have the modem...

Modem....to router...pc to router. If you have no router...then plug ethernet cable from your modem to your NIC card on PC.

You will have to make sure your network card is working (check for flashing green light and one solid green. Then you can goto COntrol panel and run the wizard to connect to the internet...it should work.

What kind of router do you have? Also, what is the model number of your modem?

Let me know if I can help further.

Good luck my friend.

I have a wireless cable modem Gateway CG814WG and I can't get an wireless internet connection on my laptop. It is asking for a security key. How do I find out what this security key is?


Contact the Internet Service Provider that provided the wireless cable modem to you, as a customer of theirs. Their Support Desk can help you configure your wireless network.

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.

How do i connect to my wireless thats in my home...says connect ehernet cable my desk top is in the other room i have wireless why do i need too connect with cable


You don't.

Turn off PS3 system..
1: Reset your modem by unplugging it from the main power source.
2: After a few minutes, plug modem power back into modem. Allow all connections to configure
3: Turn on PS3 system.
4: Go to "Settings" then scroll all the way down to "Network Settings"
5: Make sure that the "internet connection" (the second menu) is "Enabled"
6: Go to "Internet Connection Settings" and once you are prompted, select "Wireless" rather than ethernet. Ethernet is only when you have the cable plugged directly into the console.


I am always available for chat.

Trying a add another desk top to an existing Belkin wireless G router at home. Right now there's a desk top and laptop working off this router.Try several times and still can't connect to internet.


Make sure the Belkin wireless is the only device directly connecting to your internet service provider's router/modem. Usually that port is labelled "WAN" or even "Internet". The Belkin should have extra ports/jacks for WIRED connections, right? You then connect the PC into the other remaining ports/jacks on the Belkin (if they're wired) or just use the wireless for the laptop if the laptop has wireless. After getting the wireless going, though, you should lock it down by using WPA encryption key if possible.

I have 2 desk top computers hooked up to one internet source and they are hooked up to a box which my old linksys router was hooked to. I now have a lynksys wireless router G. i unplugged the internet...


Are you trying to set up the router.
You can do it manually without the CD.
Make sure that your computer is able to go online
through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the
modem
Then you need to connect the computer to the
router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the
settings of the router according to the ISP.

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

If the wireless internet works, the desktop doesn't


Check that the cable-modem (or the DSL-modem) is connected to the 'WAN' port on the router -- there is only one 'WAN' port.

Check that one of the 4 (or 5?) 'LAN' ports on the router is connected to the network-adapter on your computer.

Turn the router off.
Turn the router on.
Restart your computer, and it should regain Internet access, for both "wired" and "wireless" devices.

Trying to connect desk top computer and lap top computer


There is only two ways to possibly connect both the desktop and the laptop in the network. That is to purchase a router so you can connect them both or a route with a wireless and then the laptop (Which most new ones have a wireless capability installed) can connect wireless from anywhere in the home. If you already have a Cable or DSL Modem it may have a wireless capability. Otherwise you would have to get a wireless modem. Hope this helps. Bud
