Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
> router should be turned off after use
Nonsense. The router uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) to obtain (only!) one IP-address from your I.S.P. Each IP-address comes with a "lease", i.e., "use this IP-address for the next NN hours, and after that time, send a request to 'renew' the IP-address for another NN hours". This should(!) happen automatically -- without a need to restart the router.
So, if only the two "wireless" laptops are having the problem, the problem is inside the router.
Connect to the web-server "inside" the router, and look at the "status" web-page, and then the "log-files" web-page, to see what error-messages have been recorded.

Connecting the Devices Together

Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
