Have to try this weekend and hope someone has a little help

I am trying to connect a new computer for my Son and the OS is MS
Vista.

I have little or I should say NO experience with Vista and use XP and
Linksys products on my home wireless network.

It is a Belkin F5D9260-4 and have a USB adapter additionally. I
installed the software first for the USB adapter then plugged it in.
It seemed like the installer did not fully complete or it is a Vista
deal.

I then installed the software for the router and then plugged in the
modem (Comcast) then plugged the router into the modem and had no
connection to the internet.

Seems all instructions are for routers connected to the computer
directly. In this instance the computer is in the bedroom and the
cable has only one jack in the living room. Can this type of
connection be done, with the wireless router and modem providing a
connection to the computer in the bedroom with a USB wireless adapter?

I can connect my laptop at the other end of my home and my main
computer off as long as my router is powered up. Does BElkin and Vista
not play nice together or am I doing something wrong. I feel bad I
cannot get this up and running. He does not live with me and I want to
have a little more knowledge next Saturday when I stop over.

Anyone..........................?


Regards,


RP

I couldn't find your router on the web from the model number you gave,
which limits what I can suggest. Is it a wireless access point, or an
integrated modem/router/WAP perhaps? I'm also not clear about what
combinations/connections do work. How are you connecting the Belkin
device to the modem - Ethernet cable? Why would the router need
software - for a direct USB cable connection to a client computer, or
are you thinking of firmware? What do you mean ".. the cable has only
one jack..."? I think you need to take a deep breath and describe it
all in more detail, in a logical order! :-)

Vista's wireless configuration is fairly straightforward - as long as
you have the key, it'll figure out everything else. If you're using a
USB wireless adapter, and it's installed correctly, it should tell you
if it detects a wireless connection.

Mistyped maybe, can't tell until I see it myself on Sunday. Maybe it
is 9230 or 9250. Sorry.

OK Phil, here goes.

I am pretty certain it is a 9250-4 wireless MIMO G Plus wireless
router.

It came with an install CD and gave instructions on how it should be
installed.

She also game me the Belkin Wireless G Plus USB adapter which also had
an install CD and I followed those instructions.

When I said one jack I meant CABLE, sorry. In a perfect world (for me)
the computer would be directly connected to the router then the
modem. Or vice-versa so to speak. I have a running wireless network at
home and know it should be pretty straight-forward but this never
seemed to install all the way. The FINISH screen never showed for the
WL USB adapter.

This is the connection as it was planned by CABLE REP.

Modem plugged into Belkin WL MIMO G Plus via ETHERNET

HP Windows Vista Home PC in the bedroom with Belkin WL USB adapter.

After 2 hours I gave up. Going back tomorrow, Sunday to give it
another shot.

I don't know if this helps or not Phil but thanks for the time.

One last time. it is a 9230-4 G Plus MIMO and says on Belkin site
Vista supports it natively. Yeah right.

Sorry about top post.
