I have Wireless access point (TL-WA501G) connected to Shiro modem via hub. I was able to connect to the AP by typing http://192.168.1.1, which happens to be same gateway for modem (shiro).

Re: wireless access point login help???
Well you may have to disable the Modem... temporarily. While you want to access the Access Point. Also you probably are going to want to get a browser like Firefox or Opera, anything but what you use now, install it as a stand alone program in the root of C:\ drive, DON'T import any settings etc. Use that browser to when you access the AP.

Not only does Wi-Fi have to be on, but it has to be connected to a wireless access point (sometimes called a wireless router), and the wireless access point has to be properly connected to the internet.If the wireless access point/router has empty ports on it, plug your computer into one of those ports, and see if you can connect to ther internet then. If you can, the problem is somewhere between the wireless access point/router and the computer. Could be the transmitter part of the wireless router, could be the wireless network adapter on your computer, or could be the driver that runs the wireless adapter on the computer. If you cannot access the internet when you plug into the wireless ap/router, then you need to go one step "upstream." This would likely be the cable modem or DSL modem. Plug directly into that with your computer, and reboot both the modem and the computer (just unplug the power from the modem and then plug it back in to reboot the modem). If you can connect to the internet then, the problem is the wireless router/ap. If you cannot connect to the internet then, contact your ISP.
You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.
You may be able to log into the access point from a wireless connection, or set your computer to a 192.168.2.x (maybe 10 or higher) and turn off the DHCP of the AP, then change the DHCP of the AP to something fixed in your 192.168.1.x address range like 192.168.1.251 or similar.
Now, plug in the AP to the WGR. It can now be accessed via 192.168.1.251 or whatever you gave it, and it will let the Netgear WGR give out 192.168.1.x addresses through the WAP.
Please provide feedback and let me know if it worked for you. In your spare time, be sure to password protect the WAP away from the default password. Post back if you have any problems and please provide the name of the Access Point so I have an idea what you used. We use TP Links here.
You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order.
1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless)
2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router.
3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled.
4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings.
This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router.
Let me know if you need more help.
