Re: Wireless router problems
Your computer is only connected to the signal coming from the router that's why it's saying connected but it seems that your router is not properly configured to provide internet access since your dns server is the same as your default gaetway. it could be that the your router is not in sync with the modem.
- if it's working before, tyr to power cycle everything by turning all the devices off then turn on the modem first, wait for all the lights on the modem to turn on then power on the router and the computer.
- if the router is for initial setup, kindly provide me you ISP, brand and model of the modem and how you connect the modem to the router and tell me if how you access the internet directly from the modem.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can do so you can isolate whether the problem is with the router , the modem or your pc. 1. Disable / enable the wireless connectivity in your laptop.2. Restart the laptop. Then check if it is working. If not, go to the next step. 3. Restart your modem and router by unplugging the power cord on the back of the devices. Wait for the devices to load, then check if it is working. If not, proceed to the next step. 4. Try connecting your laptop to the modem directly by using an ethernet cable. If it did work, the problem is with the router. Its best to call the manufacturer of your wireless router if that's the case. 5. If step 5 still didnt work when you already connected your laptop directly to the modem, the problem is with the modem itself. Call your internet service provider and they'll do troubleshooting steps on their end too. Hope this was helpful! Have a great day.
Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.
I think there might be lost in the packet sending. You said the PC is still connected to the network but not able to go online. Is there any other wireless computer which is able to go online wirelessly and working fine. If yes then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter. If not then check the router wireless settings.

First of all does the modem say you Internet check the LED light or directly connect your laptop to it through the Ethernet interface looks like a phone plug but wider if you do have Internet the problem is with the router. it is not syncing with the modem this should be fixed by reseting or unplugging for about ten minutes if thats does not fix the problem you may have a faulty router or a modem doesn't send the right code to your ICP why you can get LAN Internet and not wireless is one of those mysteries.
You may do isolation to sort out Internet connection problem. If you are experiencing Internet connectivity problem and you are using a router, then bypass the router and connect your computer directly to the modem. Observe then if you will experience or not the same problem that you have when PC is connected to the router.
For wireless connection problem and you only have one wireless computer, then try connecting your wireless computer to a different wireless network and check if same problem is experienced.
In these ways, you would know what device to re-configure or re-set up.
For this its really not needed to uninstall the software
log in to the router page and look for wireless settings and get the correct ssid and wep, and set the channel to manual and select 9 or 11 channel . if its in manual the connection will be constant always
if not most of the router u will find wireless settings at the back of the router
delete the wireless profile and right click on the wireless and view the available wireless network and get connected if u r using windows to configure the wireless
if ur using the asus utility scan the network and add ur network, delete the previous profiles and wireless key's are case sensitive
