I have my router and desktop in my basement. I have trouble connecting with my notebook on the main level of my house. Sometimes I need to get within 15 feet of my router to connect. Do I need to relocate my router to the main level or can I get by with a name brand router? I have a no name router that was supplied by my phone company.

You must do troubleshooting first at your notebook. You must check if your notebook is connected with the router or not. For that go to the command prompt and type ... "ipconfig /all" it will give some details like your ipaddress , getway and dns entry . And check the same with the desktop . Your getway and dns must be same at both in desktop and in notbook. After that trouble shooting i will be able to answer with exact resolution.
The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.

It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

Try changing channels on the wireless tab in the router. On most routers the default wireless channel number is 6 and you and your neighbor could be sharing tha number. Go to channel that is avaiable, I myself had that trouble myself.
I had channel 11 set and someone got the internet and mine was having trouble so I done a scan and found 3 was open and I have no problem since.
Hi whioch computer has a problem ? A PC with the new hard drive ? Mkae sure that you have the wireless adapter working on the computer. If it is working then try to find the network . Click Here for more info about wireless network.
if your signal is low in there the best work around would be to lay a cat-5 cable up to the router, the wired connection would be faster and more reliable then a wireless, or buy another wireless router and put it closer to the basement than the first and wire the 2 routers togher with cat5 using the second router as a fancy switch.
try this plug up a line to laptop to modem to check to see if you can get connected if so then make sure you are on the same network and if so then call comcast to help you setup the laptop wireless settings in sound like the settings online doesn't have the laptop enable to accept the laptop
Make sure that the settings for file and printer sharing is enabled on both your computers. If the laptop is connecting to the wireless network of your router, you need to make sure that they can communicate fine. Turn off the firewalls on both computers then set them on the same workgroup. :)
