Belkin routers and Vista


R

Randall

I have a Belkin N wireless router set up on a computer running XP. I also
have a XBox 360 wired to the router too, they both work. However my wireless
desktop can not connect to the router, and if it does, it will be for a short
time with no internet access. This wireless desktop is running Vista. I
called the Belkin Tech support and he told me that the problem lies in Vista,
not in the router or its interface or in my Wireless NIC. However, he didn't
know of the solution. So here I am, begging to the computer gods for help.

if you do not have a belkin-n adapter in the desktop, that is your problem.

"N" wireless is still not certified and there are compatibility problems between manufacturers.
