Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

All started with wireless router (Belkin)

Mother in law has broodband, dsl internet connection. Has a belking router. I just bought a dell inspiron and want to use wireless internet linking with her computer. Set up easy install wizard on router but ** line was detected.
She has realtek rtl8139 family pci fast ethernet NIC for her network connection. (this is on a windows xp from 2001 i believe.)
Should we get a Belkin wirless G USB network adapter for her computer?? After a lot of research I am understanding that both her computer and mine will need wireless network adapters.
Is this the solution to my surfing the internet through her wireless Belkin router?

    Actually I haven't even tried my computer out yet because I am pretty sure I do not have a wireless adapter. It was my mother in laws computer that could not detect a line. She lost all internet connection when I hooked her up to the router. I tried messing with netowrk connection properties, ip addresses and id's and passwords given to her by her network provider but I could not re- establish an internet connection on her computer. Then I switched everything back the way it was to begin with and she has internet connection again. The Belkin handbook system requirements say you need to have a wireless network adapter for the host computer but it did not say it came with one. I'm not sure how to get the router to work for her computer.

Actually, is does **t really matter what computer *********** in law has or whether she has a computer or **t. Your wireless connection is **t with her computer, it is with the router.

I take it for granted that the router has got a wireless facility , since you said you set it up. Your computer must then also be wireless enabled (internal or Using an USB Dongle).

Set the connection type on the router and your computer as such that there is ** authorization or encryption involved - once you got that working please the ensure that you activate authorization and encryption for security reasons

Want to find the password currently set up in a BelkinG wireless


On the back of the router there is a black button. Hold this for 10-30 seconds, it will remove the password. I recommend after completing that step, you log into the router via a browser and give it a password tho, to keep little demons from leeching your internet >:D

If your wireless you probably need to change broadcast channels on the router ( to the last channel) if its hard wired, you probably need to port forward the ip address for the Xbox
