Question about Belkin Computers & Internet

I hooked up my daughter's computer to my network through a Belkin Router. She had a USB adapter-Belkin Surf and Share. Hers works now and my computer only works when it is connected (not wireless) through the router. I don't know what else to do.

    Hi, I tried your solution, but I'm am not an expert so the only step I may have gotten wrong is when I went to the ip with the router settings. I did not see where you could set it to wireless on the wan and lan settings. I have windows 7. I need more help.

Sounds like somehow the WEP key or WPA key have changed or possibly the channel that is being used is not compatible with your ability. Your router needs to transmit in a certain format. B, G, N etc. If her computer adapter uses N format and has your router transmitting in that format and your computer only supports up to G format you will not be able to connect. You will see it all day but can't communicate with it. Connect to your router with a cable and check the router to see what format it is set to use and make sure it is using a format your system uses. If the adapter your daughter has is N capable it will be able to connect to any other format before that one. N adapters can talk to B, G and older formats but not the other way around. Most of the newer routers can transmit in multiple roles but work better using just one. Basically what I am saying is set the router up to work on your computer than with your connected connect your daughters and make sure it is set to use the format you need.

What's the model number of the Belkin router?

I can help you out. We just need to access the router setup page and check on your wireless security settings.

First make sure wireless network adapter driver is installed and enabled on computer. then make sure on router wireless is working fine. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

How can i pick up my Belkin N wireless usb adapter with my kindle fire?


The adapter you are using is a wireless receiver. You can not connect to this adapter from another device, only connect from it to a wireless Access Point or Router.

There are ways to share the Internet connection of your computer with other devices, but you have to have your computer connected to the Access Point either via cable or have a second network card. More info here and here.

Your kindle should nevertheless be able to connect directly to your wireless network. If your computer can, your kindle should too. Is there any wireless security enabled on your network? Is Wifi turned on?

Dont work with my computer?


You need to install the Belkin software drivers on the computer. Once installed use the Belkin software controls to set up, not the Windows Control Panel wireless set up.

If you have a desktop you can share the cdrom drive over the network and access the cdrom drive from the notebook of the desktop. its a lot slower but it will work.

place both computers on the same workgroup
right click on desktop cd rom drive and click share drive
then on the notebook go to strat run type //"name of desktop computer"

I have a modem hooked up to one computer in my room, but my mom wants internet on her computer in her room, so I went to WalMart and they gave me this and told me it would work. However I really doubted...


Hi,

You have mentioned that you have a modem connected to one computer already, if you want to access another computer from a different computer through a wireless adapter then you need a wireless router or access point to transmit the wireless signal, because the Belkin N150 Wireless USB adapter which you have bought is just a "receiver".

If you have router already connected to your modem then please give the brand name of the router you have

Thanks & Regards,
Prema.

Hello,

You can try an simple step like..deleting the preferred networks(saved networks) and then try re-connecting..That should do the job. Even then if its the same issue.. Change the channel and SSID in the belkin router and power cycle the router(turn off the power of the router for 10 sec) and power it back on.. and reconnect all your computers and everything will work properly.

Hope this helps. For further information please do feel free to contact us.
