hi, I have set up a wireless network. The internet runs fine on my main pc which is hard wired into the router but when I search for the wireless network on my laptop it does not find it. The laptop Is working as it seems to find my next door neighbours network. I can find my network on my games console so the router seems to be working, to some degree anyway. Does anybody have any idea?

I had the same problem with my new laptop,it was pickcking up nearbye routers but not mine. Resolved it by changing the wireless channel on the router. Hope this helps

hi, just thought id let u know that the problem was actually because of the known bug issues belkin are having with some of the routers. Their website contained the appropriate info to fix it, incase anyone has similar probs. thanks
