and the routor is a belkin f5d7632-4

thats what i thought but when i tried it and it doesnt work. plugged it into the number one ethernet socket and no internet so i was wondering if there were any settings on the routor that i needed to change first

you plugged it into the "LAN 1" port? THat's probably your issue. It should go into WAN or Internet depending on what you router calls it.
