Make sure your router's wireless is not being used by outsiders. Is your Belkin secure enough with a WPA or WEP key? If not, then it is shared and could be used by anyone that can detect your wireless. If it is secured, they you can just reset your router by holding the reset button for 8 to 10 seconds until the lights restarts. This will make the router reset to factory defaults. After this, you can assign a new password for the router for security.
Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password
Wireless light will lit up only if any wireless computer is connected to Belkin's wireless network. First, connect to Belkin's wireless network that you can scan. After you connect, try to go online It ll work...
The usual setup is to connect your internet cable or dsl model to the WAN port on your wireless router. any devices that were formerly connected to your cable/dsl modem then get connected to the LAN ports on your router. You will need to connect to the wireless router via etehrnet cable the first time in order to setup your wireless connection, it's usually a simple setup following the prompts.
