Well..that passphrase is from a secure connection..you might need to get a new set of drivers, and re install that router.

go here for those drivers(look for Belkin router)

Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

Would like to password protect my home wireless network. Using Belkin N Router


Hello,

Since I didn't see the exact model listed I will give you a broad description of how it should be configured.

First, Ill give the link to find the manual for you specific model. The model can usually be found on the bottom of your product.

http://www.belkin.com/support/

You will be able to enter the model number in the Product Support Search field and then click the arrow on the right side of that field. Then verify your selection by clicking the model number again in the Select a product field. Once you have done that, you will see a list of download that may include a link for the manual, wireless security configuration information, and also software (firmware) updates for your particular model.

In the manual I would suggest looking at the security sections, especially the WEP security and the MAC address Control section. This should help you setup the router securely.

If these instructions are too broad please supply us with the model number and we can give you specific instructions.

I hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Double check the wireless settings of your belkin router, its should match with the wireelss settings of the computer most important is the wireless security key called a WEP or a WPA key...if you're not sure about that access the router setup page and there you can check all the wireless settings of the router..

Hope that helps..........

When using the Belkin G router the network connection becomes lost and can not get on the internet. My computer has Vista on it and Belkin says that the router is compatible with the program.


This is possibly caused by your firewall or the wireless security (wpa/wep) on the router if you have set it up.
First of all, if you can connect to the internet via a cabled connection the problem is going to be with the way you've set the router up.
If you've setup wireless security on the router, have you also set it up for your wireless adaptor?.
I suggest you try to connect to the internet via cable to start with, if this works try to connect wirelessly with your firewall off.
If all else fails start from the beginning again.
