    Did it work prior to this problem? If yes what did you change in the system? Go into the router administration and it should tell you if the router is connected to the internet. Belkin routers have this feature. Look and see under the DHCP (LAN) section if the wireless PC is being seen. Did you setup:

    SSID: deephect
    Mode: 802.11(b,g,n) Mix
    Wireless Channel: 11 or set it to manually
    Passcode? (password)

    This above SSID and passcode have to match-up on the wireless device you're using.

    On the router if you don't see connected, make sure you do a refresh and not a reset to factory default?
