Cannot install my Belkin ADSL modem with wireless G router and wireless G USB network adapter

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!

    thanks but this didnt help as my modem does not have an ethernet jack, my modem only has 2 wires, 1 is attatched which has the USB at the other end and the other is for my phone line, thanks anyway but Im now convinced that this will not work and Im tempted to throw it out of the window, as Ive spent 9 hours trying to connect it

    Thanks again but it seems that the router was faulty and my original modem has no other jack points on it, I gave up in the end after 13 hours of trying, I took it back this morning and brought a different make of router which installed straight away, thanks so much for your help.

OK.

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.

Can I connect my USB Modem to my Belkin n300 Surf? do I need an adapter to connect it??


It is not possible to connect your USB modem to belkin router... You need to run an ethernet cable between the modem and router...
Belkin routers are not compatible with USB modems like cricket broadband, MTS Mblaze modem etc...

When i unplug the cable from my computer i loose internet connection


Unless your computer also has an active & configured wireless adapter, then disconnecting the Ethernet cable between the computer and the router _will_ cause a loss of Internet connectivity.

Hi I am using reliance broadband. They have


Easy, if your modem is connected to your computer right now and internet is working all you need to do is connect your LAN line to your belkin router. the connection should say input, or Internet. after that you will need another LAN wire (These look like telephone cables but the jack plug is larger and will only fit a lan connection on your router or computer) Connect the second wire to the line 1 or outout 1 from your router, to your pc in the slot where the other cable was connected. your internet signal should work.... on your mobil find any available network and log in to your belkin router.

that should do it.... if you haven't set up your internet connection, do that first by installing the drivers for the modem provided by your provider and then complete the process above.

your user name and password have been entered incorrectly, they are case sensitive and must be exact. Make sure your ADSL settings are set at 0/38 (you'll see where)

My g wireless Belkin USB Network adapter doesn't seem to be funcionig. I cannot access Internet Explorer. I have HP PC with Windows XP. I',m using Sprint WiFi.


Is your router connected to your Broadband modem (cable or DSL) into its broadband port? The router must be first connected wired to set it up for wireless access. Use your browser to access http://192.168.1.1 and log in with login info from the manual. Once you get in, set the Network Name (SSID) then the wireless security. I prefer WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. You will need the passcode you set here to log in with your wireless computers.

Wireless router says its working laptop says no its not


Your sister was accessing the wireless access point at school which is connected to the Internet/WEB access via a router and the school's broadband service provider.
For you to access the Internet using your wireless adapter on your laptop, you need your own wireless access point and connect it to a broadband ADSL or cable modem and then connect it to an Internet Service Provider. Some Internet Service Providers (cable and ADSL) can supply a combined modem/router/wireless Access point.
If you already have a broadband modem all you need is a wireless access point/router. You only need to configure the wireless access point and your wireless adapter so they will communicate with each other. Folow the instructions in the manuals.

I am a very untechnical person and I bought a wireless G Router thinking I could connect it very simply and make my wired broadband wireless. Unfortunately the modem I have, which was sent to me by Virgin...


I'm thinking you have the ADSL modem supplied by Virgin with only the telephone line port and an USB port on the back that goes to the computer.

In the case above. You need to buy a wireless router with a USB port connection. Or something like a Linksys WAG54G which is an ADSL and wireless router all-in-one.
