Question about Computers & Internet
I currently am connected to broadband with Toucan which uses a modem that has a USB connection, I have tried following the useless instructions that came with my Belkin but when I try to set it up, (all the right lights come on) it says cannot connect to the internet so I cannot type in the 192.168.2.1 address, I have no idea how the cables etc go properly and I do not know if I am using the right adapter for the phone line, please help as I have been at this now for about 8 hours and Im seriously considering taking it back and getting a different make as I cannot find any solutions to this problem, I thought the hardest part would be setting up the other computer to recieve a wireless connection but I cant even install this on my main computer!
First plug your router directly into your computer via the ethernet cable that came with the router. You'll want to connect the cable to the port on the router that says "Internet" (it's ussally to the far left when looking at the back of the router) make sure the other end is plugged into your computer's Network Interface Card (NIC).
Plug your computer into the modem via the UBS connection.
Insert the setup cd that came with the router and follow the prompts.
Once configured then unplug the ethernet cable from your computer and plug it into the modem (which should have an ethernet (RJ-45) jack as well as a USB.
Now you can either hook up to the wireless connection using a wireless adapter OR you can plug your computer in with a ethernet cable to one of the outgoing ports on the back of the router.

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?
This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.
something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.
If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
