I have tried to set up my wireless router, but can't get it sorted. Have followed instructions on CD and also website. All relevant lights are green on router, status is connected. I have tried the 24/7 helpline for the last 12 hours - can't get to speak to anyone!! I have switched off my firewall. I'm running Windows 2000. Any help would be appreciated.
Can't connect to internet from main PC - haven't tried to network yet. I have spoken to helpline after being on hold for 30 mins. Did ping & checked IP address and all seemed ok. Said it might be my firewall - which I had already disabled. then he hung up on me!!!!!!!!!
start menu/run , type ipconfig /all - your PC should have an ip address starting 192.168, and 2 DNS server entries, dhcp server 192.168 something too, not sure with belkin routers myself. if you can ping a website from the prompt `ping bbc.co.uk` for example then you are actually connected to the net, the problem is somewhere amongst your browser connection settings.
Yes, your PC is connected. Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections, check no old dial up connections are left over, click the Setup box, and go through the steps as if you were setting the 'net up for the first time, select `I want to set up my connection manually`, click Next, `I connect through a LAN`, click Next, check the `Auto discovery of proxy` box, click Next, skip the mail account setup, click Finish. Then try IE. It may need more than one attempt to work properly.
