Re: wireless to my laptop
1, A modem connects your devive to a communication line (phone line, cable line, broadband).
2, A router directs your traffic to the correct location on the correct network.
3, An access point allows you to connect to a network wirelessly.
4, A hub allows you to connect several pc's to form a network.
5, A firewall keeps the bad guys out
You need one of each. Typically you buy one box that has everything in it. It connects to the internet, firewalls that connection, allows you to connect 4 pc's (and more via the wireless) and routes that traffic to/from the internet as required. (all for under £100 - very impressive :) )

Seems like you need to sync your modem and router. Disconnect the power to the modem and router. Then, first connect the modem and wait till all the lights are lit. then re-power your router. Restart your computers and you should be all set. Good luck
This might work for you. Now to go in and configure the router thats something totally different.
To physically install the router
Step 1: Connect the power adapter Connect the power adapter to the router and plug it into an electrical outlet not controlled by a wall switch. Step 2: Connect the router to the computer Disconnect the ethernet cable that is connecting the broadband modem to the network adapter in the computer. Connect the ethernet adapter in the computer to one of the LAN ports on the router. Step 3: Connect the router to the modem Connect the ethernet port on your broadband modem to the WAN port on the router. Step 4: Check link lights and connections Check the front of the router to make sure the Power, WAN and LAN1 lights are on.
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem
Step 1try to connect your computer directly to the modem and check if you will also experience problem
Step 2: Shutdown the computer. Step 3: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 4: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 5: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear
stable. Step 6: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 7: Power on the computer on and configure router settings if neede
Step 8:test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, maybe you need to upgrade the firmware of your router
You have to make sure first that the working pc is getting its internet connection from the BELKIN and not from the modem. To check that, right click the computer icon at the butoom right of your screen, click detail. ip address that is ok is in this form 192.168.xx.xx. If you are getting like 74.xx.xx.xx, that means that you are getting connection from the modem. THE MODEM ONLY GIVES ONE CONNECTION, MEANING THE ROUTER IS NOT FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY. After doing this you can give a follow up question.
It sounds like the router address is wrong or you are not connected to the network.. Guessing you are using Windows XP or Vista. Go to the DOS prompt (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chdos.htm) then type ipconfig. This will bring up details on your network (see example below).
You should see default gateway address which is the address of your router ie 192.168.2.1 in your example. If this is not shown you have not connected to your router properly. If it shows a different address use the address shown to try and access your router. HTH
