On my PC i can connect to the wireless network without any hassle, but the internet still doesn't work. It works without any jip at all in the laptop, but on the computer it cannot connect for some reason, i'm using a Belkin 54G router, Belkin Network Adapter and NTL Broadband Cable Modem
But NTL is a cable service, not ADSL. Therefore it needs its own proprietary ethernet modem and uses the PPoverEthernet protocol rather than ADSL's PPoverATM. For cable services, you must use a router without a modem component. Modem/routers are only for ADSL users.

Actually it doesn't use PPPoE either, it doesn't connect with a Point-to-Point Protocol. It is a "direct" network connection, no different from plugging a PC into a home router - plug in and you are online. There is no connection to establish and no Username/Password to enter.
Have you got the correct type of router - a stand-alone "Cable/DSL" router - and is it connected properly, with an ethernet cable from its WAN port to the cable modem and the computers connecting either to one of its LAN ports or wirelessly?
Does each PC get an IP address from the router in the 192.168.2.xxx range? This is important because, if the PC you are online with is getting the IP address allocated by the ISP, then you have connected the cable modem to a LAN port and the router is functioning as a network switch.
Okay, I stand corrected - as I don't live in acable area, I don't get to see them first hand - but it still needs its own modem nonetheless. Therefore the poster has to keep his, which was the point of my post.
