Belkin Wireless G Router problems :

I have a Belkin Wireless G router - 2.4Ghz-802.11g router with an ADSL router (which came with broadband) I have had them configured properly (and working) for 8 months or more now - but recently I've been having major issues with Belkin Router, a member of the family just bought a Macbook and we tried to set it up wireless but couldn't. I doubt this has caused the problem but I thought I'd state it)

Anyway, the wireless router wasnt working, It was SAYING its connected but when I tried to get onto the net it wouldnt load. Then after I ipconfig/release then renew, then restarted the router it simply didnt work.
I couldn't even get onto the Router homepage through the IP -

After quite some time of restarting/readjusting the plugs the router is working, but only in small time frames of 10 minutes or so then the wireless/internet LCD light flicker and turn off.
So the ethernet connected computer is working but the macbook isnt.

Its working at the moment but I want to know what would be causing this problem?

You say "I have a Belkin Wireless G router - 2.4Ghz-802.11g router with an ADSL router (which came with broadband)"

Are you saying that you are trying to use two routers simultaneously?

No, Its more a modem you cant connect it wirelessly it just has 2 ports; 1 for the ethernet and 1 from the phone line.

When I connect through the router, the cable that is in the computer connects into the port "modem" then another cable from the belkin router port to the computer.

We need the correct model # of the equipment that you have as we are totally confused

1 The model # of the Belkin Wireless G router

2 ADSL router??? make and #(which I believe is the modem that connect to you broadband service)

What you want to do is set up a wireless network????
