I recently borrowed my dads laptop as mine was broken. We both use the same BELKIN wireless router, and both have Virgin Media broadband accounts. When I used his laptop at my house I connected to my wireless network with no problems, and did not need to change any settings. Now that my dad has his laptop back at his house, it detects and connects to the wireless network but cannot connect to the internet - although his email will connect and download via outlook. Have tried usual - rebooting modem, wireless etc.

Re: No connectivity after changing locations
Try to go to safe mode by tapping F8 after the dell screen at startup, check if system can get a webpage.it is evident that your dad can connect to the internet because he can access and download his emails. Try to reset IE7 by clicking tools on IE7, then go to internet options, go to advanced tab, click reset button. If still if still could not connect, uninstall then reinstall anti virus sw.

1. Locate the wireless-network-connections option on your computer or wireless device. 2. Select your Belkin Router from the list of available networks. You can identify your Belkin Router by locating the network name (SSID) from the card located underneath the foot of your Router. 3. Enter your network password (located on your network information card).
Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password
check the lights on the router and the cables connected. ur dad's ISP settings might be stored in the router so its better u reset ur router by pressing the reset hole in the router using a paper clip for 1 minute, unplug all the cables, ur modem too. then plug back one by one with modem 1st.
your Internet modem or router needs to be connected to the Belkin router's WAN port with an ethernet cable. You'll then need to configure the belkin's wireless settings, it's usually a very easy "follow the prompts" kind of setup.
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) . 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.
the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.
An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.
When you installed the Belkin, without running the install on your dad's computer, Vista rebelled, and is now in a non-cooperative frame of mind until or unless you obtain the cooperation and participation of your dad in the install process, so that his system properly integrates into the larger network you are setting up.
I repeat that which was implied.
Get your Dad's cooperation and participation FIRST!
Most home router has an IP address of 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1. If you dad's laptop can connect to the router just fine, then it's a problem with your linux laptop. Can you see other wireless networks on your laptop?
You may want to check if the wireless switch is "ON" on the laptop most wireless ready laptops has either a button or toggle switch to enable the wireless radio.. if it's already enabled and you still cant connect to the wireless network,try changing the wireless channel from the router.
Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
