    Default Not able to configure belkin Wi-Fi Router

    Hi All,

    I am using BSNL Broadband Home 500 plan with a wired modem. The model of my router is :
    ZTE -ZXDSL 831 II
    i/p address to connect to modem : 192.168.1.1

    its a non-wifi modem. Since, i got 2 laptops, i thought of buying a wireless router and got a Belkin G router, model:
    Belkin G Wireless Router. F5D7234-4-H V5
    i/p to access belkin router is
    192.168.2.1

    Now i am following these steps:
    1. Plugged DSL line into ZTE modem. the LAN wire from the modem is going to the WAN port of the belkin router.
    2. From Belkin router, i am pulling a LAN wire from router to computer.
    3. switching in both the things.


    The problem is that the light infront of the "modem" on the belkin router is on orange (not connected properly) and keeps blinking.

    I am not sure wat to keep my LAn settings on the computer as. BSNL has provided some ip and DNS address which i use to connect to the net from the wired modem. But the user manual on the router says that i have to keep those setting as "Automatically detect the ip" in the network settings.

    I am using PPPoE on my modem to connect.

    I have read through some of the forums here and there but not able to figure out what exactly needs to be done..

    Somebody kindly assist me how to get my wifi working, preferably in a step by step, easy manner. I am not very familiar with the terminoligies being used here ( no offence )

    Thanks,
    Krishna

    Simple way to solve this problem:

    set wireless router address to be (for example) 192.169.1.100.

    Connect Modem LAN port to one of the wireless router LAN ports and connect your wired PC to another. It is working as a hub. You can access either device for configuration or setting up the wireless stuff.

    The conceptual view of this is that you have just one network 192.168.1.0. Your wireless-router WAN port is not used: you are not actually using it as a router, but as a hub and wireless access point.

    This is what I am currently doing with my D-Link wireless router and my Aitel single-port modem. It is simple and works.

    .
    .

    Geeky way to solve this problem:

    Consider the concept first this time. You have not one, but two networks.

    Net 1: (has just two devices)

    Modem LAN <-----> Wifi Router WAN

    Net 2:

    Wifi Router LAN
    |
    |----->Wired pc 1
    |----->Wired pc 2
    |----->etc
    |____>Wireless devices

    This is how I used to do it. It is more satisfying to get working, in a technical sense, because it requires learning much more about TCP/IP and networking.

    For ease of understanding, use addresses for each network that are entirely different, say 10.0.0.0 for net 1 and 192.168.1.0 for net two. You can use a netmask of 255.255.255.0 for all. (yes, you can use 192.168.1.0 and 192.168.2.0 if you want...)

    Net 1: (has just two devices)

    Modem LAN <-----> Wifi Router WAN
    10.0.0.1 <---------> 10.0.0.2

    Net 2:

    Wifi Router LAN 192.168.1.1
    |
    |----->Wired pc 1 192.168.1.2 **
    |----->Wired pc 2 192.128.1.3 **
    |----->etc 192.168.1.4 **
    |____>Wireless devices 192.168.1.5 **

    ** or use DHCP
