After having the router work perfectly for the last year it has suddennly decided not to connect the laptop and x-box which are upstairs anymore.
When I try to connect it it says it is unable to but doesn't say why.
Sometimes it works when I first switch on laptop but then will stop connecting for no reason.
Check your device to see if it is due for a firmware upgrade. Esp. depending on your ISP, log into your device that you have from your ISP ( whether dsl modem, cable modem, etc.) and then follow whatever procedure it needs to determine your current firmware version.

The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

Also, I noticed dropped wireless connection constantly. After researching Belkin and other websites, I was told to set the wireless channel to a set channel like 1 instead of the preset of Auto. Everything worked better. It is best to research what channels your neighbors are using and set your wireless channel about two channels away from your neighbors' network. For example 6, is youreighbors' network, I would either set my network to 4 or 8 to prevent interference. Sometimes I file-share extremely and lose the wireless connectivity, I recommend just unplug the router for 30 seconds and power it back on. Good Luck. I hope this helps. I love this router for 3+ years since 2006.Waiting for wireless n standard to be ratified, but this Belkin pre-n router will do for now.

When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.
Make sure the wireless adapter is enabled on the elonex laptop and its properly installed.
Connect wirelessly on the elonex one laptop using the same SSID and security key that you used on your main laptop.
have you customized the wireless settings of you router (e.g. ssid, wireless channel, wireless security)? if not, try to change your router's ssid or the wireless channel. it could be that some wireless devices are interfering with your signal.
normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.
i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected
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.
