How to connect a single computer to wireless router

I have just one laptop at home. I bought the Belkin G wireless router. How do I connect with just 1 computer? The instructions are for more than 1 computer. My laptop is a Dell E1505 and I do believe it has a wireless connection, I can connect to other WiFis. Do I still need to buy a card or USB adapter??
Any help would be appreciated!

I have a belkin wireless router I have one laptop connected to it now I want to connect another laptop to it but I forgot the password how can I find it?


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I have a toshiba 1905-S301. I bought a Belkin Play USB adapter to add this computer to our wireless network. Every time I connect it tells me it fails. Do I need to by a different type of wireless...


What type of router do you have? Is it a B, G or N? The Belkin Play's will not work with B-Router's.
It could be the adapter itself. If you just purchased it try exchanging it and see what happens with the next one.
I hardly ever recommend Belkin anything....I have and will always use Linksys.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.

Wireless issue


As far as your primary connection is DHCP and when its detects wireless conecction it will start getting to connect to the device becoz in you configuration you choose connect to any wireless access point option. At office your laptop try to connect but the secondary Ip address and primary configuration get conflict and primary configuration ask you to repair or shows limited connectivity option. Better is enable dhcp on you both sides so that you will not face any problems
