Help setting up a wireless internet connection

  1. Hi I have just bought a new Belkin wireless G router (F5D7234-4 v1). I have an NTL/virgin cable internet connection with an NTL:home 200 modem and I am tring to connect to a new macbook laptop. I have followed all the instructions and tried everything I can think of but it is still not working!

    The only problem I can see with the setup is that on the belkin wireless router there is meant to be a green light showing when the modem is connected to the router, and this is not coming on no matter what I do.

    One other thing I have noticed is that using the ethernet cable that is supplied with the belkin does not work when using it between the ntl modem and the computer whereas the ethernet cable with the ntl modem does work when connected between the computer and the ntl modem. Could this be the problem? a faulty cable?

    Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Yes, the green light must be on at all times. You have a bad cable

    I have now tried with various different ethernet cables and the problem is still the same. So it is not the cables that are the problem.
