A couple of steps, not sure if you have tried them already

1) Ensure that his wireless is turned ON, it also need to be compliant with the router signal, normall b or g, it probably will be

2) In the system tray double click the wireless icon and make sure your network shows up. You may need to refresh. Then click the network and connect, you may need your password.

As i said, not sure what you have tried already, if this doesn't work or you need help with these write back.

Cheers

SETTING UP A BROADBAND CONNECTION
First you need to decide what type of broadband and Internet service you require and these are -
1. DSL that uses your existing telephone line.
2. Cable that uses a cable service and can include a cable TV service.
3. A wireless 3G network uses the mobile/cell phone network and can be separate or combine with your cell phone account. This type of Internet connection uses an USB wireless device shaped like an USB memory stick.
Note - Combined services generally offer discount pricing and may include a modem/wireless router.

If you use a wireless router with the DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD.

Can not get it hooked up and working.


The G Wireless Router is the central connection point of your wireless network. Position your Belkin Router in between your cable/DSL modem and your computer to start sharing your broadband Internet access. It is pretty straight forward. you may learn wap or wep (encryption).
Now, I recommend that you contact your ISP (internet SERVICE provider) should you have any problems and they will talk you through every step. Or may take over you machine and do it for you. Hey you are paying for the service, you might as well use it. (verizon and comcast are really helpful, usually.)
This should do it for you my friend, good luck and please leave a rating. thank you kindly

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.


Internet broadband connection is much more faster because it is directly connected via physical connection from the modem (typical setup for home use). But now a days wireless internet can now compete with DSL thru a 3G/HSPDA network. In our country we can have a maximum bandwidth of 2.5Mbps using 3G wireless network.

Answer:
Yes you can speed up your connection using your phone as a modem but you need to consider some aspects.
  • your phone is a 3G capable phone
  • you have 3G network signal that an indicator "3G"can be seen next to the signal meter of your phone.
  • your network provider has 3G services.
What happen to you most likely is that your are connected using only a GPRS/EDGE. This is equivalent to a dial-up with maximum of 56kbps transfer rate. There is a great gap between the two if you compare it.

I already tested mine with maximum receive/downlink of 2,501 Kbps. I was really amazed.

Hope this things help you. If it does, please rate me.

regards,

I've installed my wireless router, modelwrt54g2v1, and the yellow ethernet cable is still connected to my laptop, once I remove it I have no connection?


The yellow cable (CAT5) is giving you your internet connection
you will need to follow some steps:
1) Access the routers GUI (usualy by going to a web-page in your Internet explorer EG 192.168.0.1 check the manual)
2) make sure that wireless is enabled on the router + DHCP is enabled
3) at this stage set wireless security here as well (to stop unwanted use of your broadband and people hacking your PC)
4) make sure that the laptop wireless is switched on, sometimes there is both a physical on/off switch and a software/keyboard enable/disable button, disconnect the Yellow network cable
5) go to control panel:network connections
6) right click on the wireless connections icon and then view available wireless networks
7) if you see your network then highlight it and click connect
8) enter the security password (if any) which you set in step3 above.

let me know how you get on
