I have a Belkin 54g Router with a Cable modem provided by Virgin media. My computer can connect to the internet when plugged directly into the Cable modem but cannot connect to the internet when I connect my Cable modem to my router and connect wirelessly! (My Computer connects to the Router just not the internet)

Re: Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.
If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Well, Virgin Media provides Cable Internet connection and with those connections you can not use this ADSL modem. If you have internet services from Virgin.net then only you will be able to use this modem with them. This modem will not work with Virgin Media connection.
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy.

the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up
Are you Trying to setup and Configure Your New or Old Belkin Wireless router? if Yes then let me Talk straight To you friend I have used Belkin routers for more than 5 years and trust me this One is the best wireless router I have ever used till now. Connecting The Belkin Router With Modem -
Reboot Your Cable Modem (internet service Provider device) and wait for 30 sec.
Plug the Belkin router to power and Connect the Belkin wireless Router with your modem with help of an Ethernet cable.
The first step to try is to reboot both the router and the cable/DSL modem.
Turn off your computer, and unplug the router and the modem from the mains. Wait one full minute, then plug the modem back in. Wait until the lights stop blinking (until it indicates a steady connection). Once that is complete, plug the router back in, and wait until it also stops blinking. Once the router and modem are both back on, then turn your computer back on and check to see if you have a connection.
If that doesn't work, then take the router out of the picture -- plug a computer directly into the ethernet port on the modem. You should definitely have an Internet connection at that point. If it works, the problem is in the router. If it doesn't, you'll need to call Virgin Media's help desk for assistance.
Make sure that you have followed the router manufacturer's instructions to configure the router to work with Virgin. Typically this would include entering your Virgin username and password into the connection section of the router's configuration menus.
