You should have the cable modem connected to your routers WAN port, using the lan connector cable (RJ45 plug), then using another lan cable from the router number 1 port to your pc's network lan card, making sure the uplink button is not pressed in as this is if you wish to use more than one router on your network.
Go to control panel, network connections, right click on your network card>properties, then click the TCP/IP line and again click properties, then select 'obtain ip address automatically'.
go to your web browser then type in 192.168.2.1 which should take you into the router settings and look for DHCP clients and make sure DHCP is enabled and save settings.
Restart the pc and it should now connect.

In order to accomplish this, you will need a clear understanding of routers and their operation. Refer to the user manual that came with your router for specific instruction on how to configure the router. If you do not understand the operation of routers, it would be best for you to consult a friend or pay a professional technician to set your connection up.
1st you need a 4 port router or a modem/router combo 1 that has more than 1 port.
2nd you need to have enough CAT5 cable to get it to 1 of the empty ports on the router.
So basically the way you would hook it up if you are going to use 2 individual components is:
1. Unplug the CAT5 and power supply from your modem the one that goes to your puter.
2. Put the new router under or the side or underneath the modem.
3. The Ethernet cable that comes out of the modem plugs into the corresponding port on the router that doesn't have a number.
4. Now depending on how many ports you have I always put my puter in port 1 and then anything else goes in the other ports, you don't have to do it numerically.
1. Unplug the power from the Modem to the Router2. Plugin back the power into the Modem and wait 60 sec..3. Plugin back the power for the Router wait 60 sec..4. Plugin a lan cord from the router to the first wired PC5. See if you can get on the internet 6. Login to the Router and see if the Connection to the WAN is started? 7. If not started then unplug the wired lan cable and reset the router wait 30 secs to 45 secs before unplug the power then plug the power in again. Then connect the lan cable then connect to the GUI for WEB. Make your See if it connects to the WAN. 8. Test the Network WAN -Internet and LAN - Home Network. Take care

Try restoring the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and pressing the RESET button on the back of the Belkin for 7 secs. Then connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Belkin, open IE browser and type the configuration IP address and configure the wireless settings ie. SSID, encryption etc. The computer wireless cards will need to be configured with the Belkin wireless settings to allow them to communicate with the Belkin.
Sounds like it might be a bad USB dongle causing the problem. Have you tried another USB port on your computer to rule out a faulty dongle?
The other problem might be a faulty CAT-5 cable. Make sure that the cable is not be stepped on or rolled over by a chair. It is very easy to break the wires inside the cable and still get connections off and on.
