    Hi everyone!
    Signed up for this account just to ask this question cause I've tried almost everything but nothing is working for me :(
    You see my wireless connection indicates that I am connected with Excellent Strength but when I open any site it doesn't let me and says that the system is offline. I tried MSN and the troubleshoot tells me that Default Gateway is offline but I have no idea how to fix that :/

    I did an ipconfig/all and it is as follows

    Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

    What brand of computer do you have?

    Let me guess--you are using WPA or WPA2 encryption? If so, try disabling encryption on the router and see if that works. If it does, please try WEP and see if that works. If that works, and if you had been using WPA2 or WPA/WPA2 mixed, please try WPA and see if that works.

    For the past 3 months we have been seeing problems (the kind you have) with that adapter with WPA(2) encryption.

    I'm using an Acer Aspire One
    I'll try that later but two other laptops connect just fine which led me to think it's the computer's fault :/

    Nope; if you are using WPA(2) encryption it's the adapter's (or its driver's) fault.

    Finally! IT worked!
    However just one question, now that my Security Setting is set to Disabled (Belkin Router Setting)
    Does it mean that anyone who can detect my wireless can connect to it?
    Is there anyway to set a password still without my laptop getting this problem?

    YES anyone can connect
    Now that you once again have internet access goto device manager and right click on the wireless adapter and do an update and let windows search the web for an update - uses windows update

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {Device Manager}
    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
    windows 7
    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

    network adaptors, click on the + >

    post back if it updated OK
    And then you can try the WPA security BACK on the wireless again and see if that works
    otherwise you may need to use WEP

    Lets us know the details of how you get on as we are seeing a LOT of issues with this adapter now
