I went through a similar problem the other day when I set up camp at my parents' house. I solved the problem by searching from my phone, and I can't find the exact instructions that worked for me, but I can summarize.
Basically, my TCP/IP properties were set to obtain an IP address automatically, but apparently the folks' wireless router wasn't functioning as a DHCP server.
So I manually provided an IP address, which fixed it.
Go to the Control Panel, then Network Connections. Right click on Wireless Network Connection, then select "Properties." Under the General tab, scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click "Properties."
Once there, try these settings
IP address 192.168.1.2
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.1.1
Preferred DNS server 192.168.1.1
I can't promise it'll work--I'm sure it depends on your network's configuration and what other devices you have set up, but Google for "limited or no connectivity" if it doesn't work. Good luck.
Thanks Keith, its said it was connected, but my internet wouldnt work, also if the wireless router wasnt connected to it, so I had to obtain the ip adress automatically to post this

Sounds like the same problem I had--it said it was connected, but that there was limited or no connectivity. But you're still able to access the internet? I wasn't able to do anything until I fixed the problem.

No, I wasnt able to browse with the settings you have me ( . I had to change the settings back so the internet could work
I'm still confused. If the internet works, what's the problem? It's just slow?

No when I changed the settings the "Limited or no Connectivity" sign went away, and it said it was connected, but my internet didnt work, wether or not my dsl modem was connected to the wireless router or not.
Hm this happened a while back to my internet connection because a power outage killed the modem and I had to get a new modem.
I think it has something to do with reconfiguring the router. I'm not 100% sure how to do this but it was really frustrating and complex. Thankfully, Belkin support escalated me to "level 2 support" which just like solved my problems in a minute (whereas their "level 1" guys took an HOUR to finally decide to put me through to "level 2")
any other suggestions?

If you've googled what I suggested and had no luck, the only other thing I can suggest is to google "port forwarding."
Well I called the company and they told me the same thing you posted in the first post KeithA, and they couldnt get it to work. They said I needed a second computer so they can configure the modem and whatnot. Im just planning it on exchanging it, do you guys think if I but another wireless router ill have the same problem? Also, portforwarding? is that process difficult? Think it might work?
For the record, you can always connect to a wireless router regardless of it it has an internet connection or not.
Have you connected to your router using 192.168.0.1?
Once connected, you can see if the WAN setting is correct on your router. Make sure it is set to Dynamic IP Address where it asks 'Please select the appropriate option to connect to your ISP." Make sure there are no MAC filters are set and there is no WEP/WPA security set (set it after you get it working).
Then, set the router to give IPs automatically by going to the DHCP page and enabling DHCP Server. Make sure your wireless adapter is set to get an IP address automatically. Try it.
If that doesn't work, get the mac address of your wireless adapter (do '/ipconfig -all' in DOS to find it), and set up a static DHCP (it should be on the same page). Try it again.
If it works with your PS3, it should work with your PC. P
Make sure, on your wireless adapter...well, first off, what adapter are you using, and try unchecking Super-G mode. ;)
Actually...hold on a second.
I just viewed your screen shot again, that's local area connection. So, your PS3 is connecting to your router wirelessly, and your PC is connecting to your router through an ethernet link?
DSL Modem is connected to the wireless router and the wireless router is connected to the PC. I think imma just return it for a different router. DOes anyone have suggestions of a good one?
For simplicity and easy navigation, I'd recommend the D-Link DI-624, and it's cheap now too. I havn't had one problem with it. )

I don't think it's an issue with the router; I'm afraid that if you return it and get another one, you'll just be back at square one.
Have you seen this page yet? There are a few suggestions made here that I haven't yet asked you to try...
Yeah I've been trying to help him via pm and if he can connect to the router w/ 192.168.0.1 with the ps3 (still has to try it) but not with the PC, I think it's the ethernet settings on his PC that's screwed up.
The "192.168.0.1" only works when the dsl modem is directly connected to my pc without the wireless router. Is there a setting I can change so it can work? Or else imma do this which im a little afraid to do
His router's default IP address may not be 192.168.0.1. What router do you have?
D-link model dgl-4300
Did you try like I explained in my last PM? Did you try with the ps3?
Even the manufacturer tells him 192.168.0.1 so there's nothing wrong there.
My PS3 now doesnt want to connect. When I scan for a connection it finds it and the signal strength is 100% but when I test it and it tried to find the IP adress and all that stuff, it says theres an error.
