It could be a conflict.. but the main thing is there really is no reason to have a 3rd party firewall installed on windows, it has it's own firewall, then you have the firewall built in to the router, all mcafee's firewall is doing for you is taking up resources and potentially causing conflicts.
I would remove that firewall and see if that helps, if not, reset the router to factory defaults (there should be a reset button on the router) and configure it again, possible that it was not set up correctly or got corrupted somehow.
With the introduction of Windows 98 SE Service Pack 2, there is no reason to have another firewall installed.
Hope this helps

I had to reset my router because I forgot my security key. Now the wireless isn't working. The light is off and I can't connect to it with my laptops. What happened and how can I fix it?


Hi,

It is possible that since your reset your router that the settings is more likely to be reset as well then you will have to connect using an ethernet cable direcly from the lptop to your router to turn on the wireless capability of your Belkin router.

You will need to get your router's Default gateway to get in the router and turne the wireless capability on it. Most probobly the IP address of your Belking would be 192.168.2.1 type this in IE on the address bar then press enter this should lead you into the router "Belkin" make sure that your are connected using ethernet from the laptop to your Belking router to be able to do this.

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.
