This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

Thank you for using fixya.

Being that your other computers in the network are working properly, you should switch the ip settings on your comnputer to automatically detect. That way your computer does all the routing and ip setting,

After you have set that back. Remove the power of your router, remove the power of your modem, and restart your computer.

Once your computer is back up, turn on modem, then the router.

It sounds very simple, but in most cases, it solves the problem.


Hope this information is helpful

    No internet connection


    Router set up is very easy. You will need to access the router set up interface to make changes on the router.

    If you are not able to go online using the router then you will need to check the settings of the router.
    First make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected directly to the modem without the router.
    If your computer is able to go online through the modem only then your modem is working properly, we will need to check the settings of the router.find network key.


    Router set up for Cable Internet service provider :

    This connection type uses the MAC address of the main computer to identify your connection. They generally register the MAC address of the main computer. So the MAC address is everything in this connection type. Now we set up router using the MAC address of the main computer. Main computer is the computer which was able to go online through the modem. Use only the main computer to set uo the router.
    Connect the modem and the computer to the router . Check the IP address on the computer.
    According to the Default gateway value open the set up interface of the router. Once you open the set up interface, you will need to clone the MAC address of the computer. Then change the wireless settings on the router and your router is ready to go.

    Router set up for DSL Internet service provider.

    What is DSL connection?
    DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) is a high-speed Internet service that competes with cable Internet to provide online access to local customers. DSL operates over standard copper telephone lines like dial-up service, but is many times faster than dial-up. In addition to being faster than dial-up, DSL does not tie up the phone line. Coexisting with telephone service in this way allows users to surf the Net and use the phone at the same time.

    There are two types of DSL connection

    1 ) PPPOE : In this connection type you will get user name and password from the Internet service provider. Your computer will not be able to go online when connected to the modem only. You can open the router set up and change the Internet connection type to pppoe and type the user name and password for the ISP. After that change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go.
    2) DHCP : In this connection type your computer will be able to go online when you connect it directly to the modem.
    you don't require the user anme and password for the ISP.
    In this connection your computer will get a private IP address from the router. According to this the IP address of your router will change. Change the wireless settings of the router and it will be ready to go online.

    Can't go online from Main Compter after Installation


    Does your router tell you it has an internet connection? (you can check this from the routers status page on it's web interface). If not, unplug the router and modem, then plug in the modem (wait approx 10 seconds). Once the modems status lights are static, plug in the router, and check the internet connection.
