Hi,
the hardware button for the wireless connection in your laptop must be switch off so you need to turn on the wireless switch and you should have internet connection after that.

I can connect to internet from cable modem but not thru Router Belkin Surf N300. I can get wifi thru router


I'm confused? If you connect a Ethernet cable direct fron the Belkin to the computer, will it connect? What does it say in Network and Sharing Center on computer, What is the computer and the OS? I think you have a Computer issue. Post Computer Make,Model, and the OS.

The wifi detect but not detecting the internet


Hello. 1_Check if the router connected to the internet by the LAN cable. 2_Check if the router connected properly to the internet by dial up your connection information. If all of these are correct that mean the mac address on the router don't match your laptop this is for the security of your WLAN network.

If you are connecting thru a ethernet cable then your ethernet is not working properly. While if you are connecting thru WiFi then the WiFi is not working properly. A cheaper option to get over this WIFi problem would be to use a WiFi dongle on the laptop rather then get the WIFi repaired which would be very expensive.

How do i hook a mac to a PC using the D-Link? I need help ASAP!


Hi, basically it really doesn't matter what sort of PC ya using... when ya connect up to the WiFi Router, the PC "Detects the SSID" (An SSID is just a unique name say.. My_WiFi) of said Router, and then with the "Remote" Computer, you simply look for, and then connect to, that network. The DHCP address server in the Router will automatically assign the "Remote" PC a WiFi address.. and from then on it doesn't really matter what any other Operating Systems the PC's are using as you are not actually connecting to them, per se, but rather conecting thru the WiFi Router to the internet. To access other PC's Windows "Files & Data" from a "Mac" & vice versa, is a slightly different matter.. but still easy to set up. The links below will be of assistance to you in setting it all up. www.macdevcenter.com/pub/a/mac/2002/11/19/mac_pc.html - 26k lifehacker.com/software/networking/connect-your-mac-to-a-windows-network-211108.php The best way to connect up a Modem & separate WiFi Router... is: Connect Modem to Router, Router to A "Main" PC, via Ethernet cable. (Router set to DCHP Server & assign an SSID) All Other PC's connect to the "WiFi Router". After setting up an "Unsecured Network" & when & after, it is all working. THEN one can set up WEP security keys for the WiFi network.

HELP PLEASE ASAP


OK well I think it is better to set it up like this... Connect the Modem to the Phone Line, Connect the Modem to the Router with an Ethernet Cable, Use a CABLE connection from the Main PC to the Router. (Ya gonna ditch the USB WiFi) Set that Main PC connection up to connect to the internet from the Main PC, thru Router thru Modem.... Then from Slave, install the USB adapter in this PC, and use this to connect DIRECTLY to the WiFi Router... and thus to the internet. This way will give the best transfer rates, and reliability
