Did you use the pass key to connect? If you are using the wifi you have to go to here with browser type admin for username and admin for pass and config the the router. To make life easy just use a cable ie Ethernet..

Its not necessary to purchase a new router. Nintendo DS supports WEP encryption. You wont be able to connect if the encryption on the router is WPA. Your computer can connect on both WPA and WEP so what i suggest is for you to access the router page then check the wireless settings then change the encryption to WEP so that your Laptop and DS can connect at the same time. To access your router check the manual for the username and password

Thanks for using Fixya.

You've not given enough information to receive a straightforward answer. I assume your problem is that you can't connect to your Belkin router, and that you are trying to connect wirelessly? When you do a site survey (that is, when you click your little antenna icon to 'View Wireless Networks' in the area), do you see anything?

A common problem with wireless on laptops is that the user will accidentally turn it off without realizing. There's usually a switch on the side of the laptop that'll turn on or off your onboard wireless (to save on battery power). Switching that will often resolve the issue.

try the ubuntu site. there should be a fix there in the forums
also I found this list on tech republic:

1: Knoppix

[UPDATE: New link] Knoppix is one of the better tools for rescuing data from sick machines. It’s a full-blown live Linux distribution with a strong, user-friendly GUI that will allow you to easily mount a drive and then copy the data (which you will locate in an easy-to-use file manager) to an external source. Of course, Knoppix comes with the full arsenal of Linux commands, which place just about everything you need at your fingertips.
2: Trinity Rescue Kit

Trinity Rescue Kit might leave you wondering, “Why isn’t this tool being developed faster and on a larger scale? Although TRK is rather slow to develop, what it offers is just short of amazing. Place it on a USB drive, boot your virus-laden machine, and scan the mounted drives with clamav, antivir, bitdefender, and more. This tool is all command line, so you might have to bone up on your commands to really make use of it.
3: Avira AntiVir

Avira AntiVir is a command-line antivirus tool that is fast, robust, and dependable. There is a GUI tool, but installing it is almost more trouble than it’s worth. (It requires Java.) Installing AntiVir on Linux isn’t the easiest of tasks, but it’s certainly no kernel compilation.
4: GParted Live

GParted Live is a live Linux distribution that allows you to manipulate partitions on a drive. It supports numerous file systems and lets you can resize, create, and delete, partitions. You can run GParted Live from a CD or a USB drive, so it’s very portable.
5: SystemRescueCd

SystemRescueCd is another live Linux rescue CD that offers numerous tools to handle numerous tasks, including partition manipulation, file recovery, hard disk testing, ftp, and disk formatting. As with most live Linux distributions, you can place SystemRescueCd on either or CD or USB drive, and it offers an easy-to-use GUI and plenty of tools.
6: Ubuntu Rescue Remix

Ubuntu Rescue Remix is quickly becoming one of my favorite data recovery tools. Like all good live Linux CD tools, it includes an outstanding GUI (it is Ubuntu after all) that can help you handle tasks other tools can’t handle. You can recover and rescue Mac files/filesystems, recover data from nonstandard external drives, recover deleted files, and more. The one thing URR is missing is antivirus tools. But, since this is a Linux rescue disc, once installed, you can simply add the tools you need to your USB live CD.
7: F-Secure Rescue CD

F-Secure Rescue CD is based on Knoppix and allows you to check the integrity of your installed applications. It also allows advanced data repair and recovery, as well as recovery from that ever-dreaded malware!
8: Ddrescue

Ddrescue is a Linux tool designed to copy data from one file block device to another. This tool will aid you in rescuing data when your drive is suffering from read errors. Unlike many of the tools on this list, Ddrescue is not a live distribution but a tool you will use on a running Linux machine. So to rescue data, you will have to attach that troubled disk to the working Linux machine.
9: Safecopy

Safecopy is similar to ddrescue, allowing you to copy files from a disk suffering from I/O errors. It also includes a tool that allows you to read data from CDs in raw mode, as well as issue device resets and simulate bad media for testing and benchmarking.
10: Linux rescue mode

This is the only entry on the list that isn’t a downloadable tool. Linux rescue mode is a mode booted with the help of a Linux boot CD, allowing you to repair a broken system. From rescue mode, you can recover a root password, repair or reinstall the boot loader, and more. When you boot into rescue mode, it will typically mount your installed system into /mnt/sysimage, where you can take care of any business necessary.
More rescue tools?

These 10 Linux tools can help you recover, rescue, and repair a Linux, Windows, or Mac machine. Of course, plenty more tools are out there. Have you come across a Linux tool that can help you repair or recover a damaged or sick drive? If so, share it with your fellow TechRepublic members.

There's no such thing as a driver for a router. You have a wireless NIC driver which can be found on the computer manufacturer site.

Can you give us more information about your setup? Are you trying an ethernet cable? or are you on WIFI? Have you checked your router's DHCP settings, to verify that DHCP is turned on.

The router has the capability to automatically check for a newer version of firmware and alert you when it's available. Follow the steps below if you would like to enable this feature. Note: We recommend you use a computer that has a wired connection to the router. Setup Steps:
  1. Open your web browser.
  2. In the address bar, type and hit Enter.
  3. Click Login. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.
  1. Click System Settings.
  1. Select Enable and click Apply Changes.

If the RED light is for POWER. Then the router is already busted. If the RED light is for the INTERNET light, then it's just a configuration. Best person to contact is your ISP (internet service provider)..But if you can provide me details of what is your ISP and what authentication they are using, I can definitely assist you. :) Regards.

You can get the installation manual on line. Just clarify me your router's model in order to get you to the exact link, or use this link and locate it by yourself.
