How many wired and wireless computers do you have ion the network. Do you have any wired computer ? Connect your laptop to the router with the Ethernet cable and try to access Internet. See if the wired connection is working or not. If the wired connection is working then I think you will need to check the wireless settings of the router and the laptop.
One end should go in your router(on one of the ports) and the other, your computer (It should fit perfectly in the ports and you should here a click), only use this if you want an Ethernet (Wired Internet) connection. If you want a Wireless connection, do not use this cable.
Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!
If you get the same speed on all three computers, I'd recommend replacing the router. I can't imagine any possible configuration setting that would cause a router to communicate at only 10KB over a wired Ethernet channel.
You are right, cable connection is more secure. The steps are:
1.) Connect the PC to the router with a crossover cable.
2.) Once connected, try to see if you are in the network. If you are, then you are ready to connect to the net.
Pleaase check if the PC connects when plugged directly to the DSL or cable connection whatever you have without the router in between. That would ensure the functionality of the ethernet card on the other pc.
