Whether you are using a notebook or a desktop PC you have to run windows network setup wizard. The PC & notbook must have a wireless network card installed inorder to connect to the wireless router. Though most people who use a desktop PC hook directly to the the wireless router through a Rj45 cat5 or cat6 patch cable. Reason being a desktop PC is less likely to be moved around. Read & follow instruction while in network setup wizard. Windows does most of the work for you. One suggestion. If you do not setup security for you're wireless, anyone near you will ba able to tab into you're wireless network & steal you're signal. You will be asked to setup a password. (Do not loose you're password)!

Wirless router will not connect with Belkin usb adaptor


There are many possibilities - we'd need many more details.

What operating system (XP, Vista, Mac, Linux)? Can you find the router with the computer? Can you connect to the router at its address (usually 192.168.<something>)? Make and model of the router? Any error messages?

Need to reset wirless router from pppoe to dhcp because of change internet provider


Hi Chapers,
Before resetting the router need to know the settings of your new service provider which can be changed so that it can worked with your new service provider. If the router settings are correct and you are connecting you router wirelessly with computer, need not to do anything else if it was working previously.
