Hi there,

I think you need help regarding connectivity through Wi-Fi.

Wi-Fi or wireless fidelity is most common used Wireless LAN technology after its invention had done a boom in the techno market worldwide.
Its seems your internet connection is working correctly because you can connect your PC via cable and it works OK.So the problem is with  WiFi alone. After all a wireless network or ANY kind of wireless stuff WHATEVER it is require mainly two things

1.Transmitter(one that sends data)

2.Receiver(the one that receives data)

Now you have bought a transmitter ,but in order to use it in your PC you need to get a Receiver if you don't have yet.Buy a Wireless USB adapter .Try searching in EBAY or any other retailer outlet.

 Hi Quinn Humphry

Hope you installed the Belkin router properly, anyway if you did this successfully have you tried disabling the firewall on the wired computer?

If none of it works the try to configure the setting by stepping it down to G or B/G mixed, then the 3 will automatically connect on the router.

Lastly just plugged a Belkin USB Network Adapter to the wired PC to make it wireless.

Then unplugged the cable that ran from the PC to the router so obviously the only cable left connected is the cable connecting from the router was the inputs from the satellite modem.

If you installed a newly bought Wi-Fi router but you cannot connect via Wi-Fi, check that your computer includes a Wi-Fi adapter. In laptop computers, a Wi-Fi adapter is built-in to the machine while on desktop computers it is very rare to see one that includes a Wi-Fi adapter because they are native to connecting via network cable.

If your desktop computer doesn’t have Wi-Fi capability, you cannot connect via Wi-Fi connection. You need to buy a Wi-Fi adapter card and install it on your computer before you can connect wirelessly. On the other hand, if your desktop computer is Wi-Fi capable, check that the Wi-Fi adapter card is installed properly. After this, scan the area for nearby Wi-Fi networks to display the names.

If you are connecting to your own Wi-Fi network, check that the network name or SSID and the password are correct. Both credentials are case sensitive. This means you have to enter the characters exactly as it is like if the letter is upper case, enter the letter in upper case also. You should also check if the signal of the Wi-Fi network is weak or strong.

You will not have a problem connecting to a network if the Wi-Fi signal is strong. If the signal is weak, connecting may be a problem.
