Question about Belkin (F5D7231-4) Wireless Router

Two Questions Connecting with Belkin Wireless Router...

First question/actually problem: I connected the router to my works Linksystem router that is connected through a Cox Communications hi-speed modem - ALL was up working fine with complete connection to the internet through both ethernet cable and through wireless connection until I tried to use the security WEP. Then while trying to connect to the set available network I got a message stating something to the effect that the system couldn't find the available certificate???? I restored the router and it worked through the wireless connection again, why is it giving me this message? Secondly: I set up the router through a laptop computer not one of the other desktops connected to the Linksystem router, would that be with trying to set up the WEP security? Or can't I use the laptop to connect wirelessly since I used it to connect through an ethernet connection? Any light on this situation would be greatly appreciated of course. Thank You!

    Ahhhh....Thanx!! I totally forgot that I may have to set up the "WEP" on the laptop to work, I really feel stupid now, lol. I'll check that again when I go back to work tomorrow. Thanks again for that insight and overlook on my part.

To answer the first question, please provide what kind of operating system you are using, and please provide the exact error message. Its probably just a caution/nag that you don't really have to worry about, but if you provide more information then so can we.
For the second question, you will need to setup the WEP on the laptop to get the laptop to connect to the router via wireless, regardless if it was used to setup the router, the wireless network is encrypted so it will need to be accessed by a computer(s) that have the key programmed into them. You can plug in the laptop into the hardwire Ethernet port for configuration, that is another option.

Router is not connecting with my laptop in my home or my ipod touch.


Questions:
Did it just start, or has it happened before, if so, how often?
I've found that I have to reboot my Belkin router, usually daily!
What I've found was my wireless headphones were interferring with the wireless channels on my Belkin. I ended up unplugging my wireless headphones while on the internet, then plugging them back when I wanted to use them.
I even went into the router's software and changed the wireless channel to see if that would help, it didnt.
Things that I found to interfere with Belkin Wireless Routers:
1. wireless headphones
2. cordless phones
3. UPS (uninterruptable power supply), (SOME) for some reason it's emitting frequencies within the wireless band of the router.
4. Cable In-House Amplifier
5. Ive had two really weird ones, a microwave oven and a clock radio. I traced those by switching off circuit breakers, until the problem quit.
Work-around Solution, Ive had to move my router as far away as possible from these sources, or these sources away from the router, except of course my wireless headphones, didnt matter where I put it, it still affected the router. Hope this helps.

Belkin Toggle


Is the router actually giving her an IP? has she ensured the wireless software is running? has she ensured the wireless security is appropriately configured on the laptop? (and that it matches the configuration required for the router?)
