Just bought a Belkin router.

Works fine with one computer, won't work when I try to connect another?

Any Ideas

Oh and yes I have tried the add computers wizard.
No luck

Are you with NTL by any chance? I brought a Belkin router too a while back, and had nothing but grief! I would set it up, and it would work for a couple of hours, and then suddely, it would just stop working! In the end, i put it downl to NTL, but i then brought a Linksys router, and have'nt had any trouble since! Its been fault less since!

did you double check your settings in router.Try a hard reset and start over.Check different ports with working pc (to see if you have a faulty port).And some routers are not compatable with certian routers!!!!!

Have you phoned Belkin? part of the reason to buy their gear is the support they give. I had a few problems and they were VERY helpful. At one point I allowed their technician to have remote control of my computer to speed up the fault diagnosis after which we soon had my network up and running.

Yes spent over an hour. no joy then then phone went dead.
Its says "sets up in three mins" on the box.

Going back tomorrow. any suggestion for one that works?

MJM what model is it?
My sons says get a Linskys or a netgear.

The point is this paticular router is advertised with this super duper set up wizard.

The only problem is it dosen't work.

The fist one I bought stayed online for a couple of hours, this Belkin will only work with one pc.
fat lt of good that is.
