We just had our telstra cable setup this morning and have a belkin wireless g router f5d7230-4 ver4000ak the internet works fine with the ip that we were assigned.
But when plugging in the belkin wireless router it doesn't come up as internet connected and wont let me assign its ip to only to 192.168.*** or 10.1.**

My question is how do i set it up to work.

Thanks in advance.

Umm, not exactly sure what the issue is, but the WAN side of the router gets assigned the the TCL gave you, the LAN side will be living in a subnet. All the PCs on the LAN/Wireless side will be assigned an address in the 192.168. range.

To access the admin interface of the router, you use the LAN side, using the (normal Belkin default) address and configure the WAN interface to have the TCL assigned address as a Static IP.

Glad you got it sorted, but that does sound a little odd to me, the routers WAN setup should be static with the provided IP from TCL. The Lan setup should be 192.168.1.X  with DHCP turned on . But guess you have sorted it now.
