This message comes when your computer is not getting the IP address from the router. There are possible reasons for that. 1. DHCP on the router may be disabled. 2. If your network is secured , then you might not be typing the correct network key.
In both the cases , you will need to check the settings of the router. You will need to access the router set up. Click Here for more info about router settings

This model Belkin wireless router has 4 LAN ports so you can connect a LAN cable from this wireless router to your computer. I suggest you disable the wireless in the router so no one can access your network and Internet. If you cannot disable the wireless then you can setup WPA2 encryption to secure your wireless network or just remove the aerial off the wireless router.
you might try moving your computer closer to your router make sure your routers and your dell 1450 settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet if applicable
You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.
first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this
go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".
Try to download the newest driver from belkin that matches the version and model. Uninstall the old driver and install the new one. This should fix the issue. you will need a pc that is connected / working to the internet to get this done.
theres a million things that can interfer with wireless...tin...cell phones, cordless phones and the like..but 11mbps is still really fast and chances are, your internet connection isnt even half that so your speed on the net shouldnt be effected...1mbps is usualy enough to load any website in seconds.
if your PC is slow, not jsut on the internet but in general (starting up, running apps) then its an issue with the pc and not the wireless.
but as a heads up, not trying to be mean, but netgear and belkin are cheap equipment.
If Internet sharing is set up correctly one pc will be the one that connects directly to internet, the other will connect through a gateway or other device connected to your network.
Check they have'nt both got the same IP address.
Is this related to last problem, did you get the wireless card working wirelessly online?
