1. Locate the wireless-network-connections option on your computer or wireless device. 2. Select your Belkin Router from the list of available networks. You can identify your Belkin Router by locating the network name (SSID) from the card located underneath the foot of your Router. 3. Enter your network password (located on your network information card).
What is pictured on your request, is wireless.. are you on a laptop or a desktop ? Most desktops do not have wireless built in, you would need to buy a CAT/5 network cable to plug in from the PC to your Cable Modem/Router. Then you would use IE to access it, or Belkin's built in installer and configuration software. Some older laptops do not have wireless and/or bluetooth built in. You would then need to buy a PCMCIA card or USB dongle to get back in the grove of the router.

I had the problem that,even though the hdd connected it would fail after a period of time (video streaming or file transfers). Set up was Samsung Q45 running wireless g connected to a belkin draft N Router. 3 other PCs (all g) using 2 different OS (Vista and Mac) had same problem.
Solution after months of searching, problem solved. Fitted Draft n PCMCIA card, and to ensure it was running at 300Mb had to use WPA PSK + WPA2 PSK security mode . Now works brilliantly and has managed to stream a full HD movie!! The Wireless link is now running faster 10Mbs compared with 4Mbs on g, although not fast it at least enables the HHD to be used in a stable configuration. Problem seems to be that the unit will not work properly unless wireless n link is used.
YES. There are some PCMCIA readers that connect to your PC/Laptop USB. Here is one on eBay:
first insert your pcmci linksys card into the laptop, you would find a found new hard ware screen, insert the setup disk, and then follow the steps, automatically your card would be installed, once the installation is done, the wireless adapter , would detect wireless signal, try connecting to the wireless network.. if it asks for any key, look at the bottom of your 2 wire router you would find a 10 digit number, enter the number as the number as key code or password, automatically you would get connected.. if case if you have any problem , revert back ..
Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
