with Belkin for the router's most up to date firmware?
I recently purchased a new WiFi enabled laptop and Belkin Wireless G Router. Previously I was connected to Telewest Broadband via a USB connection from the modem (a "Cable/DSL" model suitable for use with the NTL/Telewest Cable service) to the networking port of my computer. I have now set up the router by connecting the networking port of my computer to the router with an ethernet cable and also connecting the router to the modem port with another ethernet cable. I could not set the router up with the CD Belkin provided - when it got to the communicating with router stage it kept saying 'Problem communicating with router', even though there quite clearly was a connection. After playing around with the router's set up page, I eventually was able to get my wireless connection working.
However, even though I can connect to the internet, I cannot complete any downloads. They start okay, but pause after a few seconds and don't resume. I cannot download files or get YouTube videos to play. When I connect directly to the modem via the ethernet cable, the download problem persists. But when I connect via the USB cable, the downloads work again. Does anybody know why this is or how I can correct this problem?
Thanks for your help,
