Have you looked at the configuration screen in the manual starting on page 18?
What is shown in the "network status" screen?
Is there anything shown in "available networks"?

We removed the lynkseys card...uninstalled and reinstalled the Belkin usb wireless adaptor at which point it found the network BUT could not sign on due to "Protected" network. Prompted to put in client PIN number. Where do we put this. There was no prompt to enter a password.

A protected network means its using encryption. I think your confusing terms here. Try to connect, it should ask you for the passphrase.

Sounds like the network you are trying to access is encryted/ secure. Those require web keys/ pins.
Since you stated in the first post that the network is yours, You need to find out who set it up and what the web key/ pin is.

As you look at the networks available, you will see some are secured and some are unsecured. If on secured you will gain access.
Was yours secured?

There is no one I can help bypass the security. I have no way of Knowing what it is. Also it is against our TOU (terms of use) to bypass security.

I think i stumbled onto the problem. In the network settings section, there is NO wireless connection network. How do I go about installing that?
