If the installation cd is getting an error message, it's better to manually configure it.

since you are using a cable internet, you can start by doing a power cycle. turn off all the devices first. then turn on the modem, wait for the lights on the modem to power on. then turn on the router, then the computer

if power cycle will not give you internet access. follow the steps below.

- access your router's setup page. open a web browser and type by default there's no password
- you would be prompted with the setup screen, go to connection type under internet wan
- follow the instruction or if you have the option, just set it to automatic configuration-dhcp, then clone the mac address
- after that, click on home, internet status should be set to connected

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

    you don't need to have internet connection to access since it's the address of your router adn it's internal to your router. it could be that your computer is not getting a valid ip address or the router's ip address was changed into something else when you run the cd. when accessing the router's page, the computer should be directly connected to the router not to the modem ( i assumed that the computer is already connected to the router when i gave you the instructions above).

    if you would still like to try configuring it. you need to reset the router first for a fresh start. locate a button on the router that will say reset and press it for like 30 sec then perform a power cycle.

    one more thing, you need to have internet connection first from your cable modem in order for the router to work.

    hope this helps.

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.

Set up my belkin g router

You may have to configure the belkin router depending on the type of ISP that you have.

Basically, you can do these to configure your router:

1. connect the computer to the numbered port of the router and connect the modem to the internet/WAN port.

2. turn off the modem, router and the computer for 30 seconds

3. turn on the modem first, wait for the lights to stabilize then turn on the router, wait for the lights and lastly turn on the computer.
