If you have a broadband router, then you will not be able to use it. You need an adsl modem/router all in one.
In will have a smaller rj11 phone port, and 4 network ports, rather than the 5 network ports (including 1 wan port) that Telstraclear cable requires.

So how do you have your internet working? Is a telecom supplied modem plugged into your belkin router?

No not using Belkin router, the ethernet cable is connected from the telecom modem to my laptop,when ever i connect the ethernet cable to my router it wont work because it must not have the right settings.I'm guessing all i have to do is put the right settings into the belkin router and it will work?

Assuming you are using windows, goto the control panel, network connections, right-click local area connection, properties, select TCP/IPv4 then click properties and make sure that you have selected, 'obtain automatically' for both options.

Regardless it should still work, are you plugging your computer into the ethernet ports on the Belkin?
What model is the belkin? If you have a manual, or look on belkins site, try and reset the router to factory default.

I did ask that in the first place and you said no.

I suggest you find the model number of your belkin, or the manual, and perform a reset of the unit.

Secondly, which Telecom modem are you using? As you will then need to set up a bridge between the two boxes.

Or maybe configure the Belkin WAN (wide area network) interface correctly, i.e., with a static PRIVATE adddress, gateway (modems address) etc., on same subnet as modem LAN (local area network) interface.

Obviously none of this relates to any wireless configuration.

So when you connect your compute via ethernet cable to ethernet port 1 on the belkin, can you browse to the routers webpage?
192.168.1.1 or 0.1 or something similar.

Alternatively, when connected again, goto the command prompt, and type ipconfig what is the default gateway address?

Your speedtouch (black telecom adsl router) should be plugged into the wan port on the belkin, now that you've reset it you need to check your wifi list on your computer to see what networks are in the area - it will likely be called belkin (or similar) if it's secured then you'll need to find in the manual what the wpa key is otherwise if you can connect you need to get to the web interface (usually 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1) and check the configuration, post any issues on your thread if you need help.
