Actually the Belkin router goes both ways, First connect your computer to the Belkin router into port 1, configure it following the manual, Second connect your modem to the Belkin router into the Internet port.

The ethernet cable should be connected to the ethernet port of the router to the ethernet/network port of the computer. you will also need to connect a cable through the router and the modem, then a phone cable from the modem to the phone line.

SOURCE: trying to set up wireless

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

Got a new computer I forgot my log in to acess the router since it is protected how can get it reset?


Trouble Shooting Steps to by pass the login password

STEP 1: You can by pass this Screen by resetting the router for 30 seconds with the power cable alone connected to the router. You can find the reset button to the right side of the power connecter. And all the settings on the router will be lost and you need to reconfigure one by one again. That is the only solution for this problem

STEP 2: Then connect modem to the router using an ethernet cable one end of the cable on the actual modem and other end in the belkin router on the yellow slot or isolated slot called as "Connection to the Modem"

STEP 3: Then take a second ethernet cable and connect from the router wired slot in any like 1,2,3 or 4 and the other end of the same cable to the computer

STEP 4: And run the Setup CD o setup ur Router again

First you should know your internet service provider details like connection type

Connection type may be of Dynamic, Static and PPPoE


STEP 5: After setting connection type check whether the status is connected on the belkin screen on the right top corner and and if connected go ahead with the wireless settings like

Channel and SSID
Security

Kindly refer the attached screenshot. Which will be more helpful for u.

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

Belkin router can't connect to internet


This is part solution, part clarification request: When you say that you installed the setup software on your laptop, setup software for which: the modem, or the belkin router? Also what type of internet service do you have - Cable? DSL? If you are not sure, list your ISP. What operating systems do you have on your laptop and your main computer?

You say that you connected the modem to your main computer - I am assuming that you mean that you connected your modem with a network or ethernet cable (the one with a connector that looks similar to but larger than a telephone's connector) to your computer's ethernet card, or NIC, port. Is anything connected by ethernet cable to the Belkin router? If you have not connected the modem directly to the router, it will not connect to the internet, and anything connecting to the Belkin router will not be able to access the internet as well.

Try this: disconnected the power from your modem, then disconnect power from your router, and disconnect any ethernet cables from computer & modem, or computer and router. Connect an ethernet cable from the modem to the Belkin Router. (Ensure that you have plugged in the ethernet cable on the router into a port that is either set aside from others, or indicates "Internet", WAN, or something similar - it should be marked either with a different color, labled, or both). Now power on your modem. Wait until you see a steady "ready" light, green ethernet light, or the light usually lit for that model indicating it has completed its bootup tests and the internet connection is ready.
Next, ensure the ethernet cable is connected from the modem to correct WAN or "internet" port on the Belkin Router, then power up the router. Once the router boots up completely, plug in a cable from your computer's (main computer) NIC or ethernet card or port, to a port on the Belkin Router (there should be more than one port available, generally numbered "1, 2, 3" and so on - in a group, seperate from the WAN or internet port). Once you are sure you have the cable plugged into one of the correct ports, and if you have windows, restart your main computer.

Now on your main computer, check to see if you have an internet connection. If you do, you can now resume running the router's software setup on your laptop, which sounds as though it was walking you thru the setup process to connect you via wireless connection to the internet. Report back if you have any success, or if you have any further problems, and best of luck! Hope that info helps

HI Barry
You need something called an ethernet cable. One end of the cable goes in the router and the other end goes in the ethernet poet of the computer.

This is an ethernet cable

This is the network port (ethernet) of the PC

If you dont have an ethernet port on ur pc u may need to pay an ethernet pci card like this and get it installed on your computer
