    I have checked my desktop, going through help and it shows wireless Belkin, but my laptop says there is no wireless connection available when I try to use it as a wireless device. I have tried any "help" I've found available. Any suggestions?

The first thing to do for router issues is to reset the router,
press and hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds on back .
this sets it back to defaults ,
now log into the router using a wired connection and check to see if the wireless is enabled and open.
after you get everything to connect , name the router and put in a wep code and do the same to the laptop connect using the name and wep code.

SOURCE: We have a desktop hooked up to the router and use

I can be that the signal is too weak or the laptop's wireless capabilities is the problem.

I can't connect to the internet wirelessly. i don't think my linksys router is working


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

My Dell desktop using Windows XP can't connect to my Belkin 5720 router but my laptop still works?


This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).

Cannot connect to internet today. Yesterday all was well.


If the modem works and a desktop pc works through the Ethernet port of the router, then try plugging the pc laptop into the same Ethernet port using the same cable as the desktop. Most laptops have an Ethernet port.

If this works, then the problem is the wireless access?

Check you still have the wireless set-up on the pc laptop, if not re-install it.

Cannot connect to Wireless with my Linksys WRT120N Router.


If you have 2 devices not be able to connect to it suddenly, then it is probably the router that changed, as opposed to it being the 2 devices changing at the same time. Sometimes wireless routers just go bad like that.Try a factory reset, and then set the appropriate settings back to where you need them. If that doesn't help, you likely need a new one.

Cannot sync with my 7Mb adsl


quite often, if the router works in other houses, contact the telephone LINE company to see if there is a problem there. Alhough tiscali aren't always very helpful, ask them to do a line test and see if there is a problem with the signal to noise ratio on the line

Change router locaation


do factory reset of configuration settings then log in with the routers default credentials. then change settings to your liking with one exception: DO NOT USE WEP!!!!! At a minimum use WPA 1 personal (with MAC filtering if you know how.) WEP can be hacked in less than 5 minutes.
