Hi, i have a wireless network set up at home using a belkin 54g router. At the moment i have two desktop pc's which i can connect to the internet with. However i have just bought a new laptop which is wireless enabled and am having trouble with connecting to the internet. It detects my wireless network and says its connected with excellent signal strength but when i open the internet it says "cannot display webpage as you are not connected to the internet". Can anyone help me out as i'm a bit of an idiot when it comes to things like this. the laptop is using windows vista if that helps. Many thanks
I had this problem exactly - go to the microsoft websit for errors and trouble shooting - had to do with anti virus scanning - It has something to do with files found in a system folder that should not be there - Microsoft s solution was to delete the files (yes this made me nervous too) so I copied everything to a folder then deleted the files - closed everything up -did a quick restart and rebooting of modem and router and opened up a new connection and no poblems

Re: Trouble connecting new laptop to the internet
When you put the mouse over the network icon in your taskbar, it will say access: Local & Internet or local only.
if Local & internet you have a connection to the internet, if local only then open internet explorer, tools, internet options, connections and check that there is no default connection, it should be never dial a conection thats ticked or greyed out.

Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password. You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
This error message usually occurs in windows vista & win7 if the settings saved on the computer doesnt matches with the settings in the router... You can get rid of this message by deleting the list of preferred networks from your computer... To delete the preferred networks, follow the method given below... Open control panel > open Network & Internet(double click) > open Network & Sharing center(double click) On the far hand side left you will have an option called "Manage wireless networks" If you click that, you will see the list of preferred networks that are already saved in your computer... Now select your network, make a right click and select "Remove network" Select "ok" for all the warnings... Thats it..! you are done..! Now search for the list of available wireless networks in range, you must be able to see your network name without any error mesages... Select your network and click connect, it will ask for the network key(if you have setup one)... Enter the key and get connected...! You must be able to go online now..!
I recently purchased a new wireless card for my desktop, it was a Linksys 54g with speedbooster but after the switch the networks I was connecting to (Free wireless from my apartments) will no longer connect. The old card that I had was just an offbrand card which used the microsoft zero connection tool to configure, this new card attemps to use the software included and ive tried to switch between the two different connection configuration tools both can detect the routers but when trying to connect it does not even get to the aquiring access key stage. the router is not passworded so I guess I was just wondering can this new card not connect to the router maybe due to brands? possibly the router is belkin or something of that sort and this linksys card cannot connect? I had before gotten it to connect at the very good 54kbps or whatever the number is but it would not let me access internet and then said limited/no connectivity. I also tried to change the settings on my wireless card and set them to 802.11b only, 54g auto, 54g LRS or Performance but all had the same result, I switched the default channel to match that of the router as well still nothing. dell inspiron 1525 battery
check the wireless settings of the router . Make sure that you are typing the correct network key if your network is secured. May be you will need to open the ports on the router. Click Here for more information
When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.
This is more of an explanation then a solution, but to best explain what to do I have to first explain why this is happening. When you add security to a wireless router or ap you add extra envelopes to the packets of info being transferred, adding encryption to that makes it much slower because the ap has to encode all packets coming to you and un-encode all packets being sent to the Internet. In our time this happens very quickly, but in computer time I just described a lifetime. In addition if your signal is not 100% you might have packet loss "more slow down". Now the answer, in your ap setup pages you can setup wireless security, set this to Mac address authenication and add the mac addresses of all the network cards that have access to this ap. This is by far the fastest methiod of secure data transfer.
hey what you can do is you can reset the entire router... by using the reset button on your belkin router... Or else you can also access the router by using the following IP address in the internet exlorer...
try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 & then go to the wep settings & reset the router or change the password for the router...
