Hello

your notebook has WiFi, which is radio frequency internet, it transmits and receives radio signals (frequencies) . Your desktop, most likely, does not support WiFi on its own , so you need to use RG45 cable , ethernet cable to be connected from your desktop to the router.
My laptop works using my - lan-cable-rg45-cat5e-cat6-utp-ftp-acr2101-.jpg



So in other words thsi is what happens with your notebook and the router.

  1. your notebook has built in wireless adapter which translates data into a radio signal and transmits it using an antenna.
  2. A wireless router receives the signal and decodes it. The router sends the information to the Internet using a physical, wired Ethernet connection, to your modem (supplied by your Internet Service Provider)
The process also works in reverse, with the router receiving information from the Internet, translating it into a radio signal and sending it to the computer's wireless adapter.

The radios used for WiFi communication are very similar to the radios used for walkie-talkies, cell phones and other devices.


you need to connect your desktop to the router via RG45 ethernet cable.

Here what is happen my sister law had a Belkin router that went bad she got a norther Belkin router not the same one but it a Belkin here what going on she try to hook it up and she Chang to use broadband...


The ISP modem connects to the wireless routers main port. Then connect the PC to any other port on the router.


Use the default wireless settings that Belkin provides. There is a small tag under the unit with the default information. Or, use custom settings in the web admin.

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

you didn't need to reformat your machine. did you try another cable? if that doesn't work, take a paperclip and stick it in the reset port of the router while its plugged in.

My network connecton does not work when I connect the wireless laptop I cannot get Internet Explorer connection but if I disconnect the Bilkin I have no problem with my desktop


You are splitting your bandwidth, which is apparently insufficient to run the Belkin and your desktop. I am betting that you are connecting the Belkin to the ethernet in your Desktop, rather than connecting the Belkin to your modem and then connecting the desktop to your Belkin.

Try that if I am right.

Wirless router


nope...
your desktop can also go onlie using the wireless belkin router,so this router will now act as a distributor,you need to setup the router between the modem and the computer that is wired,i hope that when you say modem it is the one provided to you by your internet service provider,what you need to do is to conect the modem to the router and the router to you desktop computer,you desktop computer will go online using the wired connection to the belkin rotuer and you laptops will use the wireless connection..

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
