    Hi

    I have virgin internet and have bought a Belkin G router. I am running windows xp on my computer. I can do everything untill I have to configure the router and then it says done. However it then says that the router could not be configred.

    I have no idea why this is happening as it is clear that the router and my computer are communitcating.

    I would be very grateful if someone could solve this for me as it is driving me mad

    Did you remember to power cycle (unplug) your modem when switching from computer to router?

    Cable or DSL? What is the brand and model of your modem?

    Please show the following for a router connection and for a connection directly to the modem ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

    Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.

    • Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
    • Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
    • Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
    • Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
    • Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
    • Boot the computer.

    When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
