It looks like you've put the router in bridge mode and you're getting an IP straight from the router. The easiest thing to do here is reset the router. You have to reenter your settings, but it's not that big of a deal.

You may need a pin or similar to depress the reset button which is on the right back of the Belkin(F5D8233) router if you are looking at the back of it. With power applied to the router, depress the button for ten seconds then release. Look for the LEDs to go out and begin flashing again.

DaffyKantReed is correct. I've also seen other brands that require you to disconnect power from the router, hold the reset with a paperclip then power it back up while holding the reset button for an additional 10 seconds or so. It should be in your manual.

Is your wireless still unsecured or did you add encryption after you made the connection? I would try to disconnect, then remove that as a preferred network and then try to reconnect. That normally works.

I have a simular problem i could connect and i made a network calld (my name)'s PC_network and my parents told me to take the password off so i tried that and i freaked it out by disabling something and now my Belkin G_ wireless router either wont send out a wireless transmission or the light for wireless does not work
either way my NEW Toshiba satellite wont connect it picks the signal up and tells me to push the WEP button on my router or enter the pin on the bottom i enter the pin correctly but nothing connects any solutions........ maybe you need to do system restore....if the problem recently happened
