It means that the router is not configured yet. First, you have make sure that your internet wire is connected to the WAN port of your router and the computer should be connected to one of the LAN ports of your router.
Check the LEDs. Be sure that the LEDs for WAN and LAN where your computer is connected to is lit up or blinking (will depend on the brand and model number of the router).
Then you need to access the Web Utility of the router to set it up correctly. You need to refer to the manual of your router. Having a router does not mean that it will work immediately once you connect your internet or modem to it. It needs configuration.
You may also contact the tech support of your router (since the brand was not provided) for assistance
This may actually be an issue with your ISP. There is a good possiblity that your ISP has bound your connection to the MAC address of the network card on your computer. This is a common occurance which is why router manufacturers give you the option of having your router clone your computer's MAC address. Go into your router's management an perform the clone, sorry I cannot give you more details but I don't know the specific model of your Belkin router.
Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!
I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.
I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.
You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.
Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".
Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.
your computer has been set up to be the PPPoE account holder for the modem. if you have a router, you will need to configure the router to login to the ISP account using the PPPoE information so that your router is the account holder for the modem, then you will be able attach multiple computers to the internet using the router.
You can connect many computers to a network with switches, (or hubs if you want an even cheaper option) but in order to connect to the internet there will need to be a router (or modem) to connect to your ISP.
