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?

Re: Belkin G+ mimo adapter (a timely problem)
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?

Make sure the router is set up to receive an assigned address, probably DHCP. Unplug the modem for about 30 seconds with the router and computer off. Power on the modem. When it comes ready, power on the router. When it comes ready, the laptop.
This sounds like your modem is storing the MAC address. There are 2 things you can try. 1 try unplugging the modem for about 5 mins and then plug it back in. If your modem has a battery backup you will need to also pull the battery out for those 5 mins. Option 2 - Contact your internet provider and have them do a reset on the modem so that it will allow a new MAC address to be stored in the modem.
You have to make sure first that the working pc is getting its internet connection from the BELKIN and not from the modem. To check that, right click the computer icon at the butoom right of your screen, click detail. ip address that is ok is in this form 192.168.xx.xx. If you are getting like 74.xx.xx.xx, that means that you are getting connection from the modem. THE MODEM ONLY GIVES ONE CONNECTION, MEANING THE ROUTER IS NOT FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY. After doing this you can give a follow up question.
