    Connecting USB modem to a router is not possible.You will need a normal modem or a modem *** router.A modem *** router has both the router as well as the modem in it.

    If you just have a normal router then you will need to buy a normal modem and connect the router with thte modem.



    If you can give me the model no. of the router i'll let you know which one it is.

    You need to buy a wireless modem/route, which is a router with wireless built in modem capabilities.
    Remove usb modem from your network and Connect the modem/router to phone line with phone cable. connect computers to network, using a wired connection(use RJ45 ethernet cable that will come with router) to configure it.
    To configure the new modem router you will probably to make a long call to your Internet Service Provider. They will guide step by step in configuring your router.
    After configuring broadband on router, activate wireless following instruction in router control panel.
    Here is an example of

    Wireless Broadband RouterLet me know your location to receive price and models in your country, also tell me your broadband internat provider to get ISP contact number.

    If you have the router already connect to Pc using ethernet cable, that looks like a thicker phone cable. Then you need to open router control panel typing router ip number (refer to your manual for number, often is 10.0.0.1 or 192.168...something, like 192.168.0.1).
    At this point your router will ask user ID and password to access.
    ID is always Admin, password vary depending on model, you find it on manual.
    Once you gain access to router panel you need to call Internet provider to get broadband settings. They will follow step by step in setting your router for their broadband. Let me know provider name to get the contact number.

PC will not go wireless


If your PC is a desktop, not a laptop, probably it can be hooked to your modem/router only wired (using an Ethernet cable). If, for whatever reason(s), you want to connect it wirelessly, you have to buy a USB wireless adapter.

Trying to install Belkin router/modem on PC with XP SP3. Setup assistant reports ''not able to connect to router using any network adaptor in this computer''. Any advice very welcome. Thanks RT


What is pictured on your request, is wireless.. are you on a laptop or a desktop ? Most desktops do not have wireless built in, you would need to buy a CAT/5 network cable to plug in from the PC to your Cable Modem/Router. Then you would use IE to access it, or Belkin's built in installer and configuration software. Some older laptops do not have wireless and/or bluetooth built in. You would then need to buy a PCMCIA card or USB dongle to get back in the grove of the router.

Email me if you need more info.

Wirless router


nope...
your desktop can also go onlie using the wireless belkin router,so this router will now act as a distributor,you need to setup the router between the modem and the computer that is wired,i hope that when you say modem it is the one provided to you by your internet service provider,what you need to do is to conect the modem to the router and the router to you desktop computer,you desktop computer will go online using the wired connection to the belkin rotuer and you laptops will use the wireless connection..

I have a new laptop that i am trying to connect to a wireless connection. I have a speedtouch modem which has a dsl line


Your modem must first have wireless capability. If not, you need to buy a wireless router which you need to connect to the modem. Once you've done that, you can actually call the manufacturer of the router so they can walk you through setting up the wireless connection.
