Router is making me shiver with frustration and anger.
Posted on 2013-01-27
Belkin wireless router will not let me connect to the internet. It has been sitting in a box and not used for a year and a half (hence being completely out of date on the firmware), but I can't even get it hardwired to update it. All of my computers (1 PC and 3 Macs) can see the wireless network, but cannot get the internet connection. When I log into the router, I see that it too, says that it cannot get a wireless connection but that it is broadcasting my SSID.
The modem is a-ok. I tested that by connecting the computers directly, and voila - all systems tickety-boo.
WHY can I not get the wireless router to work? I mean, WHY is it impossible to get an internet connection via the router and modem together?
Here's some more info found on the router:
