I have a problem with my router, its probably been explained before though.
I felt like I had to reset my router to see if it would fix some website problem ie I couldn't connect to hotmail etc. Everything else was fine. However after I reset the router I cannot get onto the internet and I ran a diagnostic and it came up with a DNS problem. All the settings are as they were before I reset it, but I am not clear as to why it cannot connect to the internet. I've tried resetting many times but still the same outcome. My ISP is orange so I don't know if their DNS server is down. Also I'm running vista but that hasn't been a problem before. Any Suggestions cheers
There was probably a problem with Hotmail in the first place not your router. Restart the router and wait a few minutes . If the words 'connected' come up at the right of your screen then the router is working fine. Web site access problems are probably due to settings in internet options.
Consider using OpenDNS.

It's nameservers are:
188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. I'll skip the details why they are hundreds of times better than your ISP's nameservers, but they list the reasons on their site. Give it a try and see if it will work.

It could be a number of things. Most of them would be very hard to explain on this website. I will try to explain though.
*Make sure you installed the wna1100v1 drivers and software. *Try restarting everything. Computer and router. *Unplug router, wait a minute. Plug back in. Allow time for router to reestablish internet connection.
Hmm...there are a few others but they are a bit harder to explain.
Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?
if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.
do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses? it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol. if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in
the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based

You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .

will update the channel on the card.
are not able to connect wirelessly mainly due to environmental
interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will
cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When
the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself
and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router.
are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical
appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is the reason

frequent wireless disconnections by changing the channel number
