Cant seem to link my belkin wireless g+ notebook card to my router.

Hello. i just recently purchased a belkin wireless g+ notebook card but dont seem to connect it to my speedtouch 576 router. i did all that was asked in the installation but seem to get a "wireless network connection status: not connected" according to the installation process, after plugging in the card, the wizard will prompt to install software for the card...."install the software automatically (recommended)", however mine would go straight to restart computer. I also have checked with device management if there was an error but nothing of that nature was found. The belkin wireless is there and says the device is working properly. Have updated the driver as well but says "no better match on hardware". It is driving me nuts!!! Please help........many thanks!!!!

I have cable modem can i hook up my belkin wireless router model #f5d8236-4 v3 to it ...my son wants to play his x-box 360 while im on the computer...please help


theres a number of solutions

you son my have a wireless reciever on his xbox(this is either built in or can be purchased) this will allow him to access the router around the house wirelessly allowing you to keep your cable plugged in to your desktop

protip:,make sure that the router channel number is set to 11 or the xbox wont read the wifi signal

you can get an extra long cable to reach between the router and the xbox (standard cat6 cable) id buy that online as its cheaper than in the stores.this will plug into one of the ports at the back allowing him to play while you surf the net

I cant get my motorola sb5101 surf board cable modem to connect to a belkin g wireless router. the light on the belkin flashes orange when i try to connect it to the modem but no internet connection


I have a similar problem. The common denominator seems to be the SB5101. I have a brand new Belkin Surf 300N, same issue. The modem will not give DHCP to the router. I can connect fine via ethernet to the modem directly.
This modem seems to be a dinosaur.

you will need to purchase an adapter from your isp to use with your new notebook.

A modem or wifi router will still need to be connected to an ISP service.

How do I connect this router?


You will need at least two ethernet cables like the one that is currently connecting yur PC to your Comcast Modem. Use one cable to connect between your pc and any of the ports labled 1, 2, 3, or 4 on the router. Another ethernet cable should be connected between the modem and the port labeled WAN on the router. Then (if you havent already), turn off the power to all three, the modem, the router, and the pc. then, turn on the power to just the modem and wait until the lights on the front of it stablize (usually about 60 to 120 seconds). Then turn on the router and wait another 60 seconds. Finally, boot up the computer. You should be able to connect to the internet. the next step will be to set up the wireless part of the router.

Net work key code


I'm guessing you're trying to connect through wireless.
Try connecting physically with a cable, then you can access the controls of the router and set the network key to whatever you want.

Signal strength very low. Belkin ADSL2 modem with wireless g router F 507632-4


signal is bouncing off doors and walls to get to your comp
move comp closer to modem if it increases and your signal strength increases then you know youll have to be close to modem

other problem someone taped your signal and it working off of it call your provider to come out test the wireless signal strength and or password your wireless router settings so some one cant interfere with signal

i dont like wireless myself in the home i go straight cable with ether net cord this always has strenght and cannot be tapped

How old is your tower? Most computers for the last few years have had a TCP/IP port. If it really does not have one then yes, you can purchase an ethernet card or usb device. Just head to BestBuy, Officemax, or Target and tell them you need an ethernet adapter. I have always used the PCI cards. Some people prefer the external USB devices because they are easier to install.
