Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
I have just purchased a Belkin Wireless G Router. I have been unable to access the internet. A call to tech support ran me through a bunch of steps and about 30 minutes of frustration and ended with the tech telling me that I have firewalls blocking the router. I set everything up according to instructions. What is my problem here? I've tried disabling Windows firewall as well as disabling BitDefender my anti-virus with no luck. After looking in every place I can think of to check I am nearly in the fetal position under my desk.
More info needed.
Are you on cable or dsl? Can you access the router set-up screen? Can you ping the router from the computer? Whose tech support did you call? Are you using wireless or ethernet connection to router? Can you access the net if you hookup using a ethernet cable? What OS are you using?
You migh try disconnecting the modem line for a few minutes and then reconnecting it to reset the IP address your ISP gives you. If you were using the net successfully without the router, you may want to clone your computer's MAC to the router (DSL).

do you have a Wireless Router + Broadband modem?
This is like a base station to which your remote wireless node communicates (to get connected to your home network and internet.
something like this http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=187337 for an ADSL connection.
If you are on cable, you can either get a Router similar to the one above (but for cable) http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
or if your Cable modem has LAN ports you may just be able to use an "Access Point" to add Wireless capabilities. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1126536803676&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=0367639789B22
