you have to put in name the name of the router and your pc are the same......
if you get in trouble belkin have a free phone number and they will walk you through it they are really good..
Good luck

There will be some kind of security encryption code, that you require to enter into the wireless connected machines this is often on a printed label on the bottom of the router, this has to be entered often by double clicking on the a wireless icon in the system tray beside the clock,you know the one which appeared when you installed the wireless card?

But if all else fails first read the setup
instructions, or call the ISP`s help line

Have you gone through the connection wizard to make your connection Tools\internet options\connection\setup.
You may also need to go to your router homepage and log on using the information supplied by your ISP,(not familiar with NTL)

i tryed tht as well yes ^^^
it did connect at one point for about 5 minutes the DC again
do u think its got anything to do with the wireless fone, intereupting it?
also my USB adaptor is 125Mbps and the router is only 54Mbps, and noly one says WIFI on it?

Did you happen to notice how good a signal you were getting when it connected.

  lisanjake 13:45 18 Feb 2006

yeah it sed ' brilliant'

If you can get to the Belkin router page there should be a list of things you can configure, you may need to change channels, sometimes helps. If you left click on the icon with the bars in the system tray area do you see your network if so click connect then advanced and you should get a list of all networks your adapter is "seeing" your network should be in both windows with the lower icon having the "halo" on it.

yeah i got it to connect and the wireless thing goes blue, and had the halo around it, but it has a cross where it wont connect to the internetfor sum reason ?? and sumtimes it ses ' problem connectin to the router'?
