Belkin G+ mimo adapter (a timely problem)

I am using talktalk modem/router echolife hg520 on a BT landline.Therouter is sited in upstairs bedroom and has a wired XBOX live connected to it.My pc is sited downstairs and im using the G+ adapter to make the 5metre connection.
(1)leaving the xbox switched off. I first switch on the router (upstairs) then,
(2)moving down stairs i now switch on my pc and adapter:-
From the time i switch on the pc, it takes at least 3minutes but,often longer before the system tells me its running smoothly. Is it normal to take so long or am i right in thinking this connections abit slow?

That does seem a long time to connect... is it the wireless connection or getting an IP that is the delay... if it's IP then the network icon in the taskbar will have a moving part to the icon rather than being static... kinda yello ball running along a wire (if ya know what I mean)

try THIS util to see what your signal strength is and if there any other services sharing the same channel. Maybe you need to change the channel of the router?

If you're seeing this message and error code while using a wireless connection, it means that there is a form of wireless interference. If you're seeing this message and error code while using a wired connection, it means the firewall settings may be set to an extremely restrictive setting.

  • Temporarily turn off the modem's or router's firewall and see if you can connect to Xbox Live. If you can connect, turn the firewall back on, and then make sure the correct network ports are open on the modem or router. You can see the list of network ports on the Network ports used by Xbox Live page.

Router modem-CAT5 adaptor

does this router have a lan1 lan2 lan3 lan4 ports ?
the adsl port may be for a phone line so you may need to turn off the ADSL functions in the Huawei Echolife HG520s router . Turn off the DHCP server and then plug connect lan1 to your office network. Change the ip address to be unique in your office network ip network range.
maybe if office router is subnet mask made the same .

No wireless connection

You need to have an Internet Service Provider. You connect the router to a modem from the cable Service Provider or through the phone line for BT. Then you can connect wired or wirelessly to internet through the router.

If you describe your set up in detail and tell me the Internet Service Provider I may be able to help more....
