hi all..new to this so please dont shout at me...im trying to connect 2 computers to the internet..i have a belkin router on 1 computer and a dongle on the other...the one with the router seems to be working fine but the dongle pc wont connect to the internet even though it says the dongle is connected...what have i done wrong...please advise
What operating system.. Vista ? XP? The PC with the dongle. Can you "see" the router showing anywhere as a network to connect to. Is the router security enabled (WEP/WPA etc) and needs to have a passkey that has to be entered.
The network key is set into the router by the user. If you bought your router new then no network key will have been set. If you bought it used then it will have been set by the previous owner. Most routers will allow you to delete the old key and enter a new one. To help you further it would be good to know which Belkin router you have.
