I bought a Belking wireless router and a usb thing for my computer to connect my internet. I plugged it into my cable modem and computer. It shows a connection to connect to and connects but there is no internet.. i think its something with DNS but i dont know what that is :thumbsup:

DNS for your knowledge is Domain Name System

Take a look at this definition and example at

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/glossary/definition31.html

Ive never used a Belkin Router or a wireless adapter through a USB Port, I'm more of a Linksys Router user and a wireless network card.

Did your router come with any drivers and did you install them or just plug everything in??

Knowing the steps that you have already taken to get where you are will help troubleshoot your issue

Also forgot to ask, have you tried accessing the router directly using its default IP Address??

192.168.2.1 Is the default I think

Your laptop and router will need to be on the same subnet as well. If the default ip address for the router is 192.168.2.1 as bgardner suggests then your computer will need an ip address somewhere in the range 192.168.2.2 - 192.168.2.254. It could be that your computer is expecting the router to give it an ip address using DHCP, if it doesn't get an address sometimes the computer can self assign an ip address in completely different range from one that your router will allow to connect to the internet.
