Configuring WEP:
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.

Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.

Try this, your IPS Virgin, is a modem? remove AC from the ISP modem and remove battery(If it has one), remove AC power from the Linksys. Insert battery and plug in the virgin ISP modem, allow it to run the self test, may take a few mins. Plug in the Linksys, ( Is it secured with a SSID and security code?), wait for self test. turn on your computer boot normally. If that fails try this procedure: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/windowsnetworkin1/ht/renewipaddrwxp.htm

If you can't figure out the security key then you can reset the router. There should be a small button probably inside a little hole on your router that says reset by it. Press that with something small like a paperclip and it will be set back to the default settings.

VALIDATING IDENTITY


I've also had this problem when trying to connect my Medion Laptop through a Netgear Range Extender. It would find the router wirelessly but not through the Netgear. I had tried every solution on the web for days without success. Thanks to this page and a contributor who suggested updating the driver (which I had thought of previously) I did that and it all works fine. My laptop is 7 years old and wouldn't recogise WPA-PSK which was the setting on a newly installed router.

Update your Driver. :)

Can connect desktop to internet but having trouble connecting laptop to internet


First of all get your connection to teh laptop from the router wired. Then, please ping the routers IP ( Start --> Run -- > cmd --> ping 192.168.x.x.)
Look at the manual for routers IP address.
If you are getting four replies, you have a valid connection, else, try changing cables or ports in the router.
Once this is done remove the cable, try wireless. To do that, ensure, to start off, there is no security on the router. Repeat the ping procedure keeping the router closer to the laptop ( for a good signal strength )
If you are not going online yet, let me know what happens.
hope this helps
Thanks

Secure my router.


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.
