I have an unusual problem. I use an Ethernet cable from wall to computer for Internet access. Last year I added a Router and have had no problems. Today I purchased new Dual-Band Belkin to Upgrade from old N100 Netgear.

I turned the power off to everything, then unplugged my Netgear and Replugged in my new Belkin. When I turned everything back on, I had no Internet connection. I trouble shot things for a while and finally went to the most basic step of removing the Router altogether and plugging my Ethernet from wall to computer. I was shocked that there was STILL no Internet access. I tried new cables and trouble shot getting my Internet back on WITHOUT the Router. I still ad no success.

Finally, out of frustration and "what do I have to lose?" I hooked up my old N100 Netgear again and everything works like a charm! How can my Internet NOT work when I run my Ethernet directly from the wall to my computer? But, my Internet IS working when I run my Ethernet from my wall to Netgear to computer? And yet, this same connection I have on my Netgear does not work on my new Belkin?!!!

None of his makes sense to me and I would appreciate any insight on how to get my Belkin up and running.

Thanks!

:welcome:

Might be as simple as opening your device manager and un installing your network drivers and rebooting.
