Have you gone into network connection in the menus and see if your wireless in enabled and not disabled. If I am not mistaking, you need to connect the Ethernet cable to your laptop (leaving you wireless router connected) and go to the Belkin web site to reset your wireless router.

Unable to configure my wireless belkin N150


As i understand you have a router provided by your ISP: MTNL, you need to configure the Belkin router in Dynamic mode and not in PPPoE. Then restart the devices by unplugging the power from MTNL router and Belkin. Wait for 20 secs, then power up MTNL router 1st, wait for all lights to get steady and finally power up the Belkin wireless router. Then you will find the modem and internet light lit up properly.
For any further clarifications, revert!

Thanks and regards,
Arvind

I unplugged the cable connected to my desktop and the wireless function stopped working


You must always have a 'host' adaptor whether you want a LAN or a WAN. Go to your configuration utility or control panel via your Run command to set or view your options. Steve Medley
