Question about Belkin PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am having difficulty setting up a wireless internet connection to my second computer. I am using a belkin wireless G plus MIMO network adapter and a belkin wirelss G plus MIMO router. The internet is working fine on the primary computer. I have entered the proper WEP, but it will not connect to the internet on my second computer. It succeeded in connecting to an unsecured network next door, but it will not connect to mine. Any help with this problem is appreciated.

The only access point I have to choose from after setting up my wireless router (BELKIN G PLUS MIMO) is named mikes...think that may be my nephew, I think he made a password and I didn't know it. Can I...


You need permission from your nephew to use his wireless connection. In this case he will give you the password, otherwise you need to get your own wireless router and Internet connection.

If you have not installed the USB adapter driver and configured the wireless network , you need to do that to connect to the internet. Once you have cd and installed the driver , you need to enter Wireless access key or SID to set the adapter to connect .

How do you install wireless usb adaptor


A wireless USB adapter is a simple device that connects to an open USB port on your computer or laptop, allowing you to connect wirelessly to a network that is within range. They come with different connection speeds, ranges and security protection allowing you to connect to the Internet and use email servers, without complicated setups. Installing USB adapters to a computer is a simple task that anyone can perform. With just a few steps, you can access wireless networkmag-glass_10x10.gif where there is one.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Research around before purchasing a wireless USB adapter. There are many different networking companies such as Belkin, Netgear and Linksys (see links in Resources). Compare prices and features such as speed in megabytes per second (mbps). Look for wireless USB adapters with a compliance of IEEE 802.11b or IEEE 802.11g. These options give you increased security on your network.
  2. Step 2 Plug your purchased USB into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the chosen model, you may have an installation CD. Place your installation CD into the CD-ROM on your computer, and follow the setup instructions to install the wireless USB drivers. Some adapters will install automatically.
  3. Step 3 Locate the wireless icon on the lower right of your computer screen. If there is an "X" marked on it, use the manual that comes with your purchased wireless USB adapter to configure it properly. The wireless icon usually lights up when a wireless connection point is detected.

I cannot connect to the internet with my belkin wireless adapater and i don't know why, please help.


you need more than a wireless adapter to connect to the internet......
you need a wireless network to connect to. in cafe's and pubs the owner sometimes sets up a WiFi network that their patrons can connect to, however most people have to provide their own.

to get to the internet , you will need.

A broadband connection (ADSL / Cable) this normally comes with a standard NON wifi modem
A WiFi Router (including ADSL / Cable Modem) depending on what you have already.


then to link a remote PC / Laptop to this network, A suitable wireless adapter ( like your belkin adapter)

it is a common misconception that a wireless adapter is all you need (advertising is vague)

Lost cd.rom for belkin G MIMO USB ADAPTER CANT CONNECT LAPTOP TO WIRLESS AOL BROADBAND


You will need to connect your laptop to an ethernet connection to get on the internet so that you can download the drivers for your MIMO USB ADAPTER. You can also download the file on another computer and use a flash drive or burn a CD to transfer the files to your laptop.

How to i configure my system Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO to allow a home network to see all the PC on the netwrok plus my Network Storage. My internet conection works fine?


For each of your computers, right click on 'My Computer' then click on 'Properties'.

Under the 'Computer Name' tab, make sure each of your computers are members of the same workgroup ID. Just make a name up and use it for all of your computers.

The information that you want to be shared between your network computers should be placed in the 'shared' folder.

After doing this, make sure all of your computers are running and that they each have a working internet connection.

Go to My Network Places, click on view workgroup computers.
You should be able to see all of the computers in your network.

As far as configuring the router goes, if you haven't changed the settings in the past, Nothing should have to be altered in order to view other computers on your network.

Cannot finish installation (Belkin F5D8633-4 wireless modem router N mimo)


ok, obvious questions first:

Do you have a different modem from TALKTALK? can you connect to the internet through that?

if so, you may not have to set a username and password for the belkin router: just connect the belkin router's internet port to the talktalk modem and let the talktalk modem handle the automatic connection.

do you know what protocol the talktalk ISP uses?  it's probably PPPOE; make certain that your belkin router is set to the correct protocol.  if you just hook it up to the talktalk modem though, you probably won't have to specificy a protocol at all.
