    Help please! I haven't had the internet because I moved and can't get my wireless to work. I have a belkin wireless router, and the internet hooked up to my roommate's computer through ethernet. I can get a strong signal on my wireless, but it won't actually load anything on the internet. Was wondering how what I need to do for it to work? :confused:

    What kind of Internet do you have? Cable, DSL?

    Generally how it works is that the ethernet cable from the [cable, DSL] modem gets plugged into the WAN port on the wireless router, and then any wired computers (like your roommates) get plugged into the LAN port(s) of the wireless router.

    If you can give us an idea of how everythings plugged in, that'd help. :)
