So you have lights on both your laptop and the router showing that everything is connected? That's the first thing to check I suppose. Make sure the cables are good and that you are using the correct cables.

If that's good, check your network settings. Easiest way to do this is go to run and type cmd(or was it command for ME, I can't recall right off) Well, from the command prompt, type ping That is what my linksys router uses. If you have a Belkin, I think most of them would use

Bascially, I'm trying to ping the gateway. You could probably find what it is in your manual. If your laptop can't ping the router, you simply have the network misconfigured...

make sure you set your computer to obtain an ip adress from the DNS host.
