Make sure wireless feature on the laptop is enabled and turned on. Right Click on the small wireless icon on the task bar [pc symbol with wireless waves]. Select view available wireless networks - from there it should be straightforward. Please rate the assistance I have given. thanks.........

Belkin router problems


Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password


Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi i have been trying to set a password for my belkin router but cannot log on line to the ip address


The address fro your Belkin 54G wireless router setup should be: http://192.168.2.1/
I would bypass the WiFi link/security and connect your PC/Laptop to be used for configuring the router via the Ethernet cable connection plug in Port 1 of the router.
If you do not have the password, you will need to reset the router to 'factory default' by using a small reset button on the back: you need a pen to push it down. Hold it down for about 10 seconds and it will put the router to factory default settings.
You will then need to reconfigure the router using the Belkins setup CD that came with the router (or download it before hand from Belkins support site): this will normally set it up automatically for you.
Hope it helps!

I have tried to install router strait from modem to router to toshiba l30 laptop belkin shows up on laptop showing excellent signal but when i try to go on web it cannot make contact


access your routers administration by right clicking your network icon and using your gateway IP to access http://*gateway*
un - admin pw - (none), admin, public
look at your status in the belkin administration settings and see if you have an ip and gateway for your ISP.  The ip and gatway on your computer is for your belkin.
Try directly connecting the laptop to the router with a cable and see if it's on the net. If it is then you have wireless settings wrong. See belkin.com for more infor about router.

Wireless modem not connecting to everything on the network


this sounds as if either the router is not set at enable DHCP which gives your pc's and x box an automatic assigned ip address, so check in the routers settings via your web browser that DHCP is enabled, also go to your wireless network card and go to the properties, select the TCP/IP line, click properties again and make sure automatically obtain ip address is ticked, ok and close window. Do the same with the Xbox in the network settings and make sure that automatically obtain ip address is highlighted and automatic DNS is set. Lastly make sure non of the pc's network setup is set in a way that other pc's connect to the internet through this computer type set up, they should all be set up using the network wizard using the 'this computer connects to the internet through a gateway' setup, which is your router, but if your laptop is Vista, then everything should have set up automatically when a connection to your router was found. Lokk in the routers DHCP clients and look to see if all your pc's and the Xbox is listed and given IP addresses.
