    I figured it out. The way my comp hooks up to my modem is different so I need a different cable then everything will be fine. Thanks for the response though.

    Have you tried to connect the network cable into the computer and BYPASS the ROUTER and just go straight from the modem to the PC. Then on your modem see if the light are flashing or id there is a connection. You might just have to reset the modem and by that just unplug it from the wall and wait a minute or two and replugged back into the wall.
    What you should do is unplugged both the router and the modem and 1st plug the modem wait for the light s then the router then connect the pc

I have a dell 2400 desktop computer. I recently got FIOS and they hooked my wife's computer to their router with an ethernet cable. Can I also hook my dell up the same way?


Depends on the hardware. Is it a router or modem? Does is have extra ports in the back,

Router with extra ports, just connect new device with wire or even wireless if it has wireless.

Modem, most likey you have to buy a router.

Setup belkin wireless network


Hi,
1.Connect a Cat5 cable into the Ethernet port on the back of your cable or DSL modem. Plug the other end of the cable into the "Connect to Modem Internet/WAN" port on the back of the Belkin Router.
2.Connect a Cat5 cable into the "Ethernet" port on the back of any desktop or stationary computers and then plug the other end of the cable into one of the LAN ports on the back of the Belkin Router. Start with port one and work your way up with subsequent computer connections.
3.Turn the Belkin Router on by plugging the router into a power outlet. Allow 30 seconds for the router to fully boot up. All computers tethered to the modem via a Cat5 cable have access to the Internet.
4.Open the Wi-Fi Wizard on your laptop and turn on the Wi-Fi antenna. Once turned on, the Wizard finds all network connections in your area. Connect to your network to establish an Internet connection. Complete this step for each computer not tethered to the Belkin Router with a Cat5 cable.

I have a wireless router and a pc down stairs not hooked up to the internet how do i get it hooked up with the router hooked up to another pc upstairs


if you can conect a ethernet cable to the router then to the pc you will have internet. if the router or pc dont have a ether port free or avaiable. you can buy a wireless usb dongle. plug this into your pc witch will make your pc wireless and then u can conect it to your wireless modem. hope this helps in some way.

Wireless connection set up


Are you trying to hook up the laptop wirelessly to the pc? because then the pc would need to have a wireless card as well....sounds like I need more info, but if you are trying to do what I think you are, you should just get a wireless router instead, hook the pc tower directly to it via ethernet cable, and then setup the laptop to connect to the router. The router would hook to your dsl or cable router....what service do you have?

Trying to set up wireless from desktop (Main ethernet computer) to Laptop @ home. Have cable modem (comcast) connected to desktop (main ethernet plugged computer)Belkin Wireless Router G ethernet is hooked...


Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

Ethernet Card


Do a ipconfig at the command prompt and see if you are being assigned a ip from the modem. If not try rebooting the modem with the ethernet connected to modem and computer. then do ipconfig again to see if not getting internet ip, your card or modem eternet is bad. put in a new one and try again.

I am trying to hook up a belkin router to a desk top, gateway. with no success been on the phone with belkin for 4 hours, unsuccessful


i hope your not talking about the wireless router.....

unplug your computer from the modem, and link the modem's Ethernet port to your router's WAN port (this is important). Once you have that in place (and you may see a WAN status light come on), plug your computer into one of the other Ethernet ports using another Ethernet cable and see if you can get a connection........
