First thing you should do is get a wireless router. The Belkin F5D5231-4 is not wireless, so to use it, you have to connect with cable. I think that's not what you want.

Maybe you've just posted your question under the wrong model. So please tell me which wireless router you've got, when you have one.

I can help you further then.

Can I change home hub password?


The simple answer is no. Hubs just act as distribution points for a network and, therefor, have no password or settings to change. A router, on the other hand, can be set as needed to connect other parts of a network and passwords can be set.

Using Netgear DG834 ADSL Modem, want to add a netgear WNDR3700 Wireless Router to act as an assess point


The simplest way to add more ethernet ports is to use a network hub and connect it to the Netgear DG834 instead of the Netgear WNDR3700. This does not require any configuration.

I can't hook up my PC with my wireless router how I can do this?


You could simply hardwire your computer directly to your router, unless you want to purchase a Wireless Card or USB. You will still need a computer connected to your Wireless router to act as a terminal to edit and set the settings on the router. Most regular routers use CAT5 (Ethernet) cord to setup their networks, which is what you should use.

Go to your local store and purchase 2 CAT5 Cables to connect one from your modem into your router and one from your router to your PC. Once you have set up your wireless router you can then access your router from anywhere in your house.

Good luck, if you need help feel free to comment.

Thanks,

I just got my Asus Eee PC 1000H and the first thing I tried to do was to connect to the wireless network in my house but I don't have a wireless network icon. The wireless and bluetooth are both turned on....


Hi,
I am assuming this has windows xp on it. Go to start settings/control panel then double click wireless network setup. Go through the wizard and go from there. If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

How do I add an additional laptop to browse the internet?


If you mean to your home network you could use either a router or a hub. With a hub you can connect a cable to access the internet. With a wireless router you can use a wireless card in the laptop as well and use the laptop anywhere in the house.

You have to install a wireless network card in your main PC, and then you can put the router anywhere that you want it.

Auto-Sensing Hub - ' Router? '


Hello Steve,

A hub will work to hook two PCs together, but you will need a router to get any data transferred. You can set up your XP computer to act as a router in the Network Connections section of Control Panel. Be aware that one of your computers must have two network cards. One must plug in to the DSL and the other must plug in to the hub. If that's the case, click the "Set up a home or small office network" on the left side of the window and a wizard will pop up and help you the rest of the way.

If you don't want to deal with it, you can just purchase a router.

Let me know if you have questions - I'll monitor this thread.
