Why might a computer work with a belkin adapter feeding off a router but not directly from the motorola modem. It is a fairly old computer?

That is a bit cryptic, is it ADSL (isp through phone line) and is the router a modem/router?

I am on broadband and the router is connected to my modem. telewest. hope that helps, sorry not very techno

You are likely to get more useful responses with a more descriptive thread title.

Belkin adaptor/router problems please help.

Belkin/Motorola Modem problems.

Something like these will enable forum helpers to quickly scan a thread heading and dive in if it looks like they can assist you..

Presumably the Motorola modem is a USB one? USB modems are notoriously flaky because their drivers are poorly implemented. A router, on the other hand, requires no drivers, it deals directly with the PC without any further layer of software (the driver) that can potentially go wrong.

It may help us understand your problem and thereby help you if you were to explain the actual problem you are having, at the moment your question does not make sense.
