You cannot have the PC connected to the modem's USB port and the router connected to its ethernet port. Disconnect the USB link, connect the router by ethernet and connect both PCs to the router, with either a wired or a wireless connection.
The ISP only allocates one IP address and each computer must have a unique IP address in the network. The router connects to the ISP, gets the one IP address, allocates LAN addresses (usually in the 192.168.x.x range) to the networked computers and then "routes" the internet traffic to the appropriate computer.
I also have a Belkin setup. If i remember correctly, my NTL modem is connected to the router, and then the router too my laptop. I can then connect to the internet on this, and also another computer in the house
Yeh my router is connected to my modem with an ethernet cable, and then another ethernet cable from the router is connected to my pc networking port, but it does not then detect an internet connection on the pc....even tho i have a ethernet adaptor card installed..
although the laptop can detect the wireless router and connects,...it also cannot access the internet wen i try to browse the net like on the PC.
