My Belkin G router ver.8002uk is running successfully on my Vista System Computer. When I used the Belkin set up disc it recommended a change of router name from the default. This I did. However, when I start up and connect to the Belkin, the default name is displayed on my desktop, not the name I changed it to. Reason?

The name which you have changed is the wireless name or SSID. But your desktop shows the routers Hostname because it is a Hard wired computer

Change my settings from wep to wpa I have a belkin 54g

when you change the wireless security on the router , it is recommended tht you will change the wireless network name also ( SSID ). Because when you try to connect to the wireless network on the computer, your computer will try to connect to the same old network name with the old wireless security settings. To avoid this you can change the wireless network name. WPA is supported by windows XP SP2 and above operating system.
If the operating system on your computer WINDOWS XP SP1 and if you are trying to connect using the windows utility then you would not be able to connect to the network .

Belkin router not giving signal to linksys adapter HELP!!!!!

I dont think belkin has a stable driver for win.7 at this time. I have a belkin n router with a belkin adapter and had no luck.
Some people have had some success using a Vista driver.
You could go to and download a win 7 driver there. They show a 48% success rate.

Vista wireless connection to belkin-n

It sounds like your linksys is your main connection so therefor it will not always let belkin connect because your pc has registerd your linksys to be your connection.

Computer Turns off

When you installed the Belkin, without running the install on your dad's
computer, Vista rebelled, and is now in a non-cooperative frame of mind
until or unless you obtain the cooperation and participation of your dad in the install process, so that his system properly integrates into the larger
network you are setting up.

I repeat that which was implied.

Get your Dad's cooperation and participation FIRST!

Belkin wireless router installation with a laptop that has an internal modem

Depending on the operating system that you are running, and if you have the appropriate wireless cards, you should be able to do this either with or without the modem. If you have the modem connected to one computer, and wireless cards on both computers, then your best option would be to just connect directly from one computer to the next. If you can tell me the answers to these few questions, I can help you get on the right path.

What operating system are you running? Windows XP? Vista? Macintosh?

Do both of your computers have wireless network cards? If not, then which computers have the wireless network, and which computer has the modem?

Belkin Router doesn't connect to internet

GUYS, omg this is so damn unbelievable. I've searched EVERYWHERE on the internet until some genius told me that the reason why I couldn't get internet even though I connected to the router was because of the stupid Norton Internet Security Firewall that was still in use after uninstalling. After I downloaded Norton Removal Tool, EVERYTHING was back to normal. I'm NEVER going to use Norton again, I don't care how much they have improved I was using 2008 and it caused me so much trouble. I recommend everyone out there to not use Norton as well. People out there are saying that Norton is a virus itself in that it is VERY hard to uninstall.
