The router came with an intruction booklet that was for Win2000, not XP. Have insatlled drivers from disc but when I clik on SOHO netwoking etc. it starts the XP network setup wizard. Belkin have been no help as sending out a techy from India may prove expensive.

The disc that came with it has the SOHO software but as said when applied it reverts to the XP wizard and doesnt use the drivers from the disc. I have manuallyconfigured the TCP/IP to 22.214.171.124 but it still won't open the router page in IE. Loosing my teather. If there is anything else you know of could you let me know. Thanks again.

Go to Start > Run > CMD > ipconfig /all
Note your IP, DNS and Gateway addresses - are they correct for your network?
Can you ping the IP address of your router?
Can you ping an external IP address like 126.96.36.199
Can you ping an external site by name like www.yahoo.com
If you can ping your router but not an external site, make sure your gateway IP address is correct.
If it is, and you can't access the Internet with programs like IE, Outlook Express, or other web browsers, you may have corrupted Winsock entries(fix is supplied further on). If you can ping external websites, but not your router, then it is your router malfunctioning - it will be good for confirmation, and means we will be able to focus on that.
It's possible that your TCP/IP stack is corrupted, although I do not think this is the case, it will not hurt to try the fixes. Please try the following:
1) Download the Microsoft Hotfix Patch here.
2) Download and run the WinSockXP fix.
3) Run the following commands in Command Prompt:
Start > Run > Cmd > netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
Start > Run > Cmd > netsh winsock reset
Is your Belkin a wireless router? If it is, then when you try to run the setup disc, are you still connected to your modem (not through your router)?

I'm not able to connect to the Internet at all when connected through the router. Done ipconfig/all whilst pluged into the router but it does not show the ip address for the router which should be "188.8.131.52" correct? it shows 10.0.0.0. Then I have configured it manually to said ip. Still won't connect to anything neither router or net.
I'll try the winsock fix and get back. Cheers.

If not, I found this handy Setup Guide, and I think you should use it. Go here for this guide - you'll probably want to download it to your computer. I think this will help you - it seems to cover your problem of not having an IP Address. Let me know if it helped or not.

As for the winsock fix, have to wait until my girlfriends gone to work or she's likely to strangle me for going on about the router again. Keep you posted.

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Network Connections > Right click on Local Area Connection 3 > Select Properties > Click on 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties > Select 'Use the following IP Address'
IP Address: 192.168.2.41
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.2.1
Preferred DNS server: 184.108.40.206
Alternate DNS server: 220.127.116.11
-- Have you tried all of that?
After you've done that, you should be able to connect to the Router's setup page.

Also my network conn. page does not have a local area connection 3 icon, only 1394 net adapter and local area connection adapter.
Is the software too old??

Can you please post your Computer's specs?
Please turn off your computer(s) and unplug your modem and router. Wait five minutes -- plug your modem back in, but wait for all of the lights to turn on and remain steady -- Once all of the (necessary) lights are on steady, plugin/turn on your router and wait 30 seconds. Then proceed to turn on your PC(s). Go into Command Prompt and do ipconfig /all -- has anything changed? If not, then repeat the above process, however before you do so, uninstall all Belkin software on your computer and turn off all firewalls on your computer (make sure they won't just start up again on reboot). Once your computer starts up, try installing the Belkin Software from the CD again, and then proceed to follow the setup guide. If this does not change anything or does not work, then please ensure that all lights on both the router and modem are on steady.
Are both of your computers running the same Operating System? Which OS are the computers using?
Have you updated all drivers on your computer?
**Check if the Router's 'Ready' light is on steady (again).

-- Set up your Network:
Open the Control Panel and select Network and Internet Connections. Click on Set up a home or small office network. This will launch the Network Setup Wizard which will guide you through the process of configuring your machine.
On the Welcome screen click Next. Then click Next again which will take you to the Select a connection method page. Select This computer connects to the Internet through a residential gateway or through another computer on my network. Click Next.
On the next page enter a description & name for the computer. The name should be unique on the network and not contain spaces. Click Next. Now enter the name of the workgroup. The default entry of MSHOME is fine, but you should use the same workgroup name on all computers. Click Next.
You now have a choice, if you wish to be able to share files between the computers on your local area network then Turn on file and printer sharing. Click Next. You then have an opportunity to review the settings before they are applied. Click Next. Wait while the wizard applies the network settings to the computer, the process could take a few minutes.
Once the settings have been applied you have the opportunity to create a Network Setup Disk to speed the configuration of other Windows computers (including non-XP computers) on your network. This requires a blank floppy disk. Click Next. The disk will be created. Click Next and then Finish. You should then select Yes to restart your computer.
