If you can connect directly to your virgin Media Broadband and get internet then your laptop and broadband router is fine.
The wireless router appears not to have a DNS entry and you will need to add that manually.
I suggest that you connect directly to the Broadband modem, be sure you can get onto the internet. Once you have confirmed you can get onto the internet you need to get the dns information from your Broadband modem for later.
once connected directly to the broadband modem, click start>run> then type "CMD" then click open. you will get a prompt type the following and record the DNS Server ip addresses.
"ipconfig /all" then hit enter this will display your ipaddress information but mostly you need the DNS server ip addresses.
once you have recorded them rerun the install, but this time instead of at the end of the install where it shows the Wireless router information you can modify or change it and add the DNS server entries.
Also by default most wireless routers ip address is 192.168.1.1 and you can type that from a internet explorer and change it from there as well. I believe it's no ID or user name and the password is admin.
the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up
If you are connected straight from the modem, your router will not have internet access, only if your modem is connected to the router you will be able to go online wireless. connect your modem to the router nad router to the desktop, so that you can access both wired and wireless connection
If you have your pc connected directly to your Virgin Broadband modem through the ETH/LAN port on your pc then disconnect it from that port on your PC.
Then connect the same cable to your Belkin Routers Internet/WAN port. Then take the extra cable that came with the Belkin router and connect it to 1 of the 4 lan ports on the Belkin router. Then connect the other end to your PC in the LAN port.
After that, restart your PC and everything should be fine.
connect a network cable to it. the open a web browser like internet explorer and type: http:\\192.168.1.1
A user interface should appear, the default password will be either 0000 or 1234.
Connect to your broadband provider (make sure you have a DSL lilght on solid, not flashing) and see can you browse the internet, you may need to put your username and password in the browser.
If you can browse you are now ready to setup your wirelees side of your network.
Disconnect the cable and activate your wireless on your pc/laptop. Search for your network name (this can be checked when connected to your router, usually under, wireless SSID name. Call it something you reconise)
The model number of the Belkin router may be of interest if detailed configuration instructions are required and because there is the a report of an issue with a specific belkin router model on the Virgin Media site that appears to require a firmware update to work well with that particular internet service.
