  1. Hi,
    Hopefully somebody will be able to help.
    I have a Belkin Wireless f5d7632-4 at home. Currently the computer attached to the router and one other computer are connected. Both run XP home edition and work fine.
    However, I am unable to connect a third computer to the internet, which runs Vista. It will connect to the network but I can't connect to the internet. I have tried all the diagnostic checks that come with Windows but all to no avail.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Sounds like the Internet (TCP/IP) not running. I'd focus on checking those settings. Is you wireless card being assigned addresses such as IP, DNS and Gateway?

    Try first setting up the Internet "hard wired" to the router
    This will confirm all TCP\IP settings are correct or not

    Also you may need to uninstall any live protecting programs, including:
    Personal firewall
    Spybots S&D tea timer (and may other spyware gaurd programs)
    Even un-install your Antivirus software, in some cases even this can cause your Internet to stop
