Hi I have a Belkin wireless G F5D7230-4, purchased in New Zealand.
It installed no problem.
When I first switch on the pc there is no internet connection, if I pull the power out the belkin and put it back in the internet starts working - I have to do this every time I switch on the pc.
When I search for wireless networks on my laptop it finds the belkin wireless and connects at 100% signal strength, but I cannot get the internet to work via wireless on the laptop - even if I reboot the belkin.
I can only access the when I first switch the pc on (ie when there is no internet connection). As soon as I pull power out belkin and put it back in I cannot access even though the internet is then working!
Please help, this is driving me nuts
I have adsl broadband via adsl modem which connects to the belkin, then belkin connects to the pc.

Check the firewall settings on the Belkin: is it passing traffic through to your LAN?
