Hello MatthewNicol

You wouldn't need an adapter card for your computer unless it does not support a hard-wired ethernet connection.

The DSL modem would connect directly to your computer via an ethernet patch cable just at it does currently to your Belkin N1 router.

Some DSL and Cable modems support a connection to a computer via a USB cable but this method is not recommended unless an ethernet connection is not available and not an option to install on your computer. (Connecting via a USB cable to your DSL modem will require a driver for the DSL modem, too.)

To connect (hard-wired) to your computer from your DSL modem, disconnect the ethernet patch cable that is connected to the WAN (Internet) port of your router and connect it, instead, to your computer. If it isn't long enough, replace the etherenet patch cable w/ one that is.

Before you make this cabling change, remove power from your router and from your DSL modem. Once you're finished w/ the cabling, restore power to the DSL modem.

Make sure the hard-wired NIC is enabled on your computer and that it is configured according to your ISPs requirements. (Just let us know if you need assistance w/ this.)

NOTE: W/ this arrangement, you will not have the ability to share the Internet w/ other computers via your router. You'd have to do so through your computer. (You cannot directly connect both your router and your computer to the DSL modem.)

If you need Internet connectivity for two or more computers, we could explore why your wireless connection is being dropped. I'd recommend doing that b4 abandoning the use of your wireless router.

If you'd like to look into that issue...:

(Q-01) Where is the router physically located in relation to the computer whose connection is dropping?

(Q-02) Is the router situated up high w/ clear LOS (line of site) to your computer?

(Q-03) If it is not in the same room, have you tried using one or more wireless repeaters?

(Q-04) Is the wireless adapter on your computer an N1 adapter?

(Q-05) If not, is the router configured to support your adapter properly? (802.11g or 802.11b)

(Q-06) If your wireless adapter is N1 are the other computers on your network (that are connecting wirelessly) using N1 adapters also?

(07) If they are, then set the router to N1 compatibility only.

(08) Do the same w/ Wireless G if all the computers' wirless adapters are 802.11g adapters. Include Wirless 802.11b compatibility ONLY if you have one or more computers on your network using 802.11b wireless adapters.

    Markk7171 brings up a good point, too. That is that you can connect "wired" to your router rather than using its wireless connection if you like. This would give you a way to bypass using your router's wireless connection while at the same time continue sharing your Internet connection w/ other computers on your network.



    If, however, you are experiencing intermittent connectivity w/ this router both wired and wirelessly then there is a problem w/ the router. Please, let us know if that is the case.

Your ISP should provide you with an external modem that would be connected to your phone line, then you would connect the modem to one of the wired connections on the back of the router, or directly to the back of your computer.

However, if you insist on an internal modem, I would suggest either a U.S. Robotics or Encore brand.

Can i connect belkin to belkin through dsl modem and how


Yes, you can connect:

DSL modem WAN/Internet port on Belkin #1

LAN/network port on Belkin #1 WAN/Internet port on Belkin #2

LAN/network port on Belkin #2 your computer

If the two Belkins are in different rooms, and there are more than one computer in the room with Belkin #2, it makes sense to run ONE (not MANY) Ethernet cables from Belkin #1 to Belkin #2.

Wired connection randomly drops


Since the wireless works fine on your router, then it is possible that there is a problem either on your ethernet cable or on the port of the belkin router.
Try a different ethernet cable. (Ethernet cable is the one that is connected from your computer to the router.) If you don't have a spare cable, you can directly connect the computer to the modem, just to isolate the issue and determine if it is the cable or the computer itself.
If you have determined that the cable is working fine, then try a different port on the router.
I hope this helps!

It's asking for the security word that you entered into the router when you set up wireless security. You will need to enter both the wireless SSID, and the security key to make the system work.

a couple of question for you, is your wireless secure or did you enable security features like wep or wpa, how many people authorise people are on your network. if not secure, secure your wireless network, hackers like to kick people off their own system, upgrade the firm ware on your router, for the latest compatibility it will fix issues that arise and finally do a bios upgrade on your laptop.
